Bummer once told me to review a fangame as if it were an anime. I will fulfill his wish with this review.

God bless me. It's so late and I'm pretty sure the end of the game fucked my brain. Good luck to me.



Fuck. The platforming is the primary star of the game, as it presents itself as a somewhat strange xfloor game. By strange, I mean that the maker gives you little to no hint as to how close you might be to finishing. In terms of content, the game takes the typical xfloor genre and sprinkles in a few typical gimmicks like vines and gravity switchers in order to add variety into what can be a very mundane genre. The platforming itself features a mix of typical jumps and unique jumps, with the typical jumps taking the favor (https://imgur.com/a/rtwh8) across a myriad of different floor types (types being distinguished by the gimmick, music, and skin). The difficulty of the needle varies across each set of floors but does not fluctuate much from the 90 I gave it. The beginning of the game starts off pretty tame compared to future platforming and steadily rises at least until 3X.

Personally, I enjoyed most of the platforming. Some of the saves were a bit too hard for my tastes and the sheer amount of typical jumps were factors that contributed to my dislike for the game (I use dislike lightly here, it was only for certain saves or jumps. I did not dislike an entire area). Otherwise, the use of gimmicks was exceptional and fit well with the style of needle within each area. Each area in general offered a definite challenge while remaining somewhat fun at some point. Overall, decently fun.

The game is not perfect; it has its fair share of flaws. For any xfloor game, difficulty balance can be a big issue. This game is no exception. Some floors and saves felt too free for a 90 difficulty game whereas plenty of other saves were too brutal for my taste. Yes, difficulty is subjective and I do present myself as a slow, inconsistent player who will definitely take more time compared to needle veterans, but I feel as if there's enough in the game to where something in the game will feel much harder than it should be/harder in general. The use of typical jumps was another issue I had; there were just too many damn diagonals and gates. I won't lie; it made me sick.

Overall, the platforming was great albeit its slight annoyances. It's very fun and unique enough to keep the player engaged while challenging him or her with very tough screens.


Avoidance in the form of bosses and barrage take a backseat to the platforming but offer a nice break for players who might be tired of the hard needle. Bosses appear after every few areas up until 3X where a boss appears at the end of each area. The bosses are very basic and offer nothing special effect wise, but the simplicity does not take away from how nice the bosses can be. Each boss up until the final barrage features a central attack or gimmick alongside some sort of pattern or rng that really defines the boss and relates back to the area that precedes it. For example, a boss at the end of the gravity stage at 3X features gravity flippers with some aimed bouncing. The bosses each have around 10 hp and should not take more than 30 minutes to clear (with 1 or 2 exceptions).

I enjoyed all but one of the bosses. The reference to the area in the boss was very nice and the simplicity really reinvigorated a love for said simplicity that is not really present in fangames anymore. The bosses do vary as you pass from area to area, so none of the bosses will really get boring unless you spend >30 minutes on them. The bosses are usually fair, so you don't need to worry about unfair rng that much...

until and only until the jungle area boss. This boss, without a doubt, was the worst thing about this game and the worst thing I've played in a fangame. I won't go into detail, but I will say it requires luck. And a lot of it. Once you do clear it, boss difficulty will not exceed what is seen in that boss, so it should be easy going from that point on. Still, the inclusion of that boss was a serious flaw with the game. While it is the only flaw in terms of the bosses, it is a severe and unforgivable flaw that will push most players away from the game. The readme does warn players that the game is very hard, but luck should not be an indicator of difficulty, requirement for clear, and present instance in any game whatsoever. I love wonderful's work, but this was one of the worst things I've seen him do. I hope he will avoid mistakes like this in the future.

The bosses were nice. As an avoidance player, I had a lot of fun playing most of them and the end barrage was a nice finale (even though I died to the last 30 seconds or so too many times, a trend I really hope does not carry itself into other games but will not hurt the game's enjoyment in any way). I have said what I want to say about the white red cherry boss, so I will not go further into that. Very nice job.


Simple. Wonderful's aesthetic is known by most everyone in the community by now, so its no surprise to see the same in this game. I enjoyed most of the songs and the tilesets did not bother me at all. A real strength to this game and all of wonderful's games. It's not flashy in any way, but that doesn't mean the game suffers as a result. Very, very good.


Excellent. Would recommend to fangame gods or anyone looking for a challenge that will help you improve as a player. Do keep in mind the game is meant for experienced players, so don't get your hopes up if you mean to play to clear. Just go a few floors at a time and go as far as you can. Don't grind this out if you're not ready for it. I waaaaaaaaaaarnnnnnnnned youuuuuuuuuu. :^)

I hope to see more from wonderful in the future. He has definitely become one of my favorite creators so any work of his is a definite play. This one, again, is no exception. Well, kinda.

Ratings based on everything before the final avoidance because, let's face it, I'll probably never clear it. Avoidance is just not for me, and this one seems particularly difficult compared to what I've managed to scrape through.

This game is incredible. It took me a very long time to get through it (again, ignoring the final avoidance) but I've loved about 51 out of the 63.5 hours I've spent on this game.

That said, the game has some problem segments which really stick out and bog down the experience a lot. While I did particularly enjoy a lot of segments, the ones that were more memorable were certainly the ones that I did not enjoy.

Here I will very harshly detail the segments I really actually just fucking hated:
OK Actually just fuck screen 42. I get it, it's very close to the end so it's gonna be harder, but actually just fuck that screen. The save is super long, and has an actual ton of jumps that suck really hard to die to. Everything up until the gravity flip/trigger is fine, but every jump after that can suck my ass.

The first two screens of the right path in 3X. They're both really long and full of annoying jumps, especially the second screen. There honestly aren't any specific problem jumps in the first screen, they all just add up to be really tedious. But the second screen is littered with them. The invert, and the T-bone and beyond are bundo as hell.

The Jungle boss. Just no.

Screen 22. For the most part, this stage was OK, but it definitely had some parts I really disliked. The first save is pretty awkward and claustrophobic, but not too bad. The second save is a real doozy. This save made me stop playing the game for like, two months. The terrible camera is really the downfall of this save. Everything after the diagonal is very annoying. Especially the second last jump.

Screen 20 is weird. I liked it a fair amount, it was pretty fun, but it was quite the large spike in difficulty compared to everything before it. Also fuck that stupid moving fruit that does literally nothing aside from making you wait. Doesn't affect the jump at all, it's just there to slow you down.

Also this segment doesn't even come close to the same category as the previously mentioned ones; I'm just too lazy to make another spoiler segment: The water save. It was very intimidating from watching others play it. It looked like complete ass and I was expecting it to be my least favorite part of the game, but I ended up enjoying the save a lot! It was a bit frustrating at times, but that comes down to my own fault and not the game's. There's nothing really bad about the save. The troll at the very end is hilarious. I knew something like it happened going into it but I couldn't remember, and I had a good giggle at it anyway.

But yeah, this game is sick. The visuals are simple but get the job done, which I really dig as an aesthetic. The music is actually fucking AMAZING. I listen to a lot of the soundtrack on the daily, and even have a playlist on YouTube located here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLXNdj2WCx5WOXLfgLmAkYvMbfiGPnk1Xb

If you enjoy needle (and are VERY good at it (which I am not)), definitely check it out. It's extremely creative and oozes personality.

No, Donald isn't nearly as bad as everyone says. I sincerely disagree with people saying it's cancer. :~)

Quite a lengthy needle game, a good 50+ screens depending on how you count (the game being rather wacky about screen numbering). The difficulty starts out relatively mild and ramps up gradually before more or less levelling off around the halfway point. The second half consists mostly of 5 stages that can be tackled in any order, all centered around some basic gimmicks like jump refreshers or vines.

I don't think the game is ever a gem of needle design, but it is consistently good. It's pretty hard to balance the difficulty for a needle game of this difficulty and length, but aside from the second save in the water stage, nothing really got me stuck for TOO long (speaking in relative terms of course, I am bad at needle and this game took me 45 hours). So I think that's commendable.

The bosses are not much more than a short reprieve from the needle grind. Aside from the much maligned red/white fruit and the final boss, they're all quite easy, and even those two don't come close to being as hard as the platforming.

All in all, if you're up to the challenge, this is a solid choice if you want a tough needle game to sink your teeth into.

I made up my mind about what I think about this game. It's probably one of the highest quality hard needle games out there.

Extremely long and extraordinarily difficult needle game, featuring a (very) healthy dosage of cycles and other more gimmicky platforming to spice things up along the way. Recommended only for highly experienced players who are prepared to handle a wide variety of high level platforming challenges mixed in with raw needle and even a few bosses.

There are a few awful sections here and there (most notably the meaningless apple cycle at the start of floor 20 and the DISGUSTING Pokeball boss) that have the potential to ruin your day, but overall Wonderful managed to design an incredibly difficult game that nonetheless very rarely becomes obnoxious to play. If you're up to the task, Figure won't disappoint.

For a specific bit of criticism: There are a few too many jumps that force specific frame heights than is necessary, the most notable ones being the required max height jump to reach the bottom left path of 3X and the forced 4f/2f later in said path. They kind of kill the flow of the saves they're in and could have been loosened up a bit, given how long saves in this game tend to be.

Also, half of the saves are wuss saves, which means you could actually play this game on Hard or higher and have a different experience... I really don't recommend trying this, and I doubt anyone will ever do so, but if anyone is ever insane enough to clear this game on Hard mode, I wouldn't mind seeing it.
