The game can be downloaded as a part of the game pack, Holocene Juveniliax.

10 screen needle game where the screens gradually get harder, with the gimmick of choosing a number
(1 to 10), which determines how many screens you have to do before the game ends. My rating is based on doing all 10 screens.

The needle design is unique, but at times it felt unpolished. I liked the music but the visuals were a bit painful to look at.
The difficulty curve is mostly stable from room 1 to 7. (difficulty: 10-65)
However the last 3 rooms were way harder.
Screen 8 starts with a hard save involving a questionable vstring-drop I could only beat with a low JC in a platform. The rest of the screen is free in comparison. (difficulty: 82)
Screen 9 is not bad, the last save is longer and harder than the others though. (difficulty: 84)
Screen 10 has a jump which I could only do with a mid-air low cancel, followed by a few precise jumps.The save after that one was the hardest in the game for me, 3 drops with short hops/JCs, a double 16px drop into a super awkward floating vine, landing on a tas ledge, with a final double jump invert to choke on. Good! The rest of the saves are, again, way easier.

There are secrets, but according to the readme, they are meaningless.

Rating for rooms 1-7: 6.7/10 65/100
These should be fun to do for most needle fans.
I would only recommend going further for needle masochists.
