Sequel to 128's other game, 128, 256 is a game in the same vein. Its a needle game with an emphasis on triggers and various moving obstacles to make it more dynamic. Contains two difficulties - normal, which I felt ended about a 70-75 and an easier mode that changes some of the spikes, though a cursory look didn't seem like it was any of the problem jumps so I wouldn't expect it to actually be 'easy'.

There's definitely some major improvements - less 16 pixel gaps, triggers felt less gibby and more interactive and more variety in moving obstacles. This combines into the existing formula of trigger needle where you feel like you probably know where you need to go next but going there will change what you do after. Its fun to guess where you're going and whats going to happen and most of the design is creative, and the game flows a bit better than its predecessor.

I felt the later stages fell off a bit though, not because the good parts weren't as good but basically every save began with an annoyingly precise jump that was just a generic corridor jump (many of which played out very similarly, as corridor jumps do).

Finally, it ends in a boss which was a huge improvement in most ways over the previous game and was just a fun boss in general. For a player with equal needle/boss skill, they likely won't be at it long but the attacks are fun and dynamic and I'm always a fan of arena shifts.

Overall, its a very good trigger needle game that's quite challenging without being very difficult like some of them out there. Marginally better than the previous and there's no particular order needed so feel free to play this first and take a look at 128 if you enjoyed it, as they are quite similar.
