Discord Makers CN Side is a mammoth of a needle game consisting of a whopping 28 stages! With such a wide range of makers, each stage differs greatly from the last, making for a very varied needle ride. Even if you're not committed to clearing everything in the game, chances are you're going to find some stages to like here.

The stages are split into 3 categories, these being 'Easy', 'Hard' and 'Special'. Despite this, I found the stages to be moreso just an Easy -> Medium -> Hard sort of range. A number of stages in the 'Special' category don't feel particularly special. That's not to say the needle isn't good or interesting, but whilst stages like Shimmer's L-needle stage or Shadow's Rukito-esque trap needle stage stand out as very unique, stages like seVens or Q123's are moreso just very difficult albeit creatively designed needle.

In regards to needle enjoyment, I enjoyed a vast chunk of the platforming in this game. I gather from infern0's review that a lot of testing was put into it which is very appreciable given just how much needle there is to work through. Some of my personal standouts include the aforementioned Shadow's stage which was a very creative Rukito+ style challenge, Bootstrap's high-quality 32px heavy stage and Flames stage which whilst being one of the easier ones remained a fun challenge throughout. Even some of the ones I didn't expect to like such as Shimmer's L stage turned out to be surprisingly enjoyable, as it didn't require any cancels or 1f's.

The production value also deserves a shoutout, which is really polished and well done. The interface resembles that of a mobile rhythm game (Voez I believe?) and the style works really well as you navigate the clean menu and aesthetically pleasing arrangement of stages. My only complaint was sometimes after scrolling along I couldn't click a stage until I'd scroll more, as if the page was desynced with where the buttons were. Maybe it's an issue with my bigger window, who knows.

Very worth mentioning that you can back out of any stage at any time and it will save your progress should you want to return later. For a game with such a large amount of stages and variety, this is hugely appreciated and a really great feature of the game.

I did have some gripes with a few stages regarding either design or difficulty. One thing that comes to mind is the water screen in TheWWworld's stage which had some kinda questionable jumps, and a few parts of Coffee's stage were a bit on the unpleasant side. Obviously with a game of this size nobody is going to like everything, and I was still able to appreciate every stage despite some hiccups along the way.

If you're a needle fan then I'd strongly recommend giving this game a shot. 100% completion can be demanding if a number of the stages aren't to your liking, but I'd still push you to give the stages a try and see which ones appeal to you, because there's a lot of high quality needle in here packed inside a very pretty package.

There's easy needle, there's hard needle, there's consistency needle, there's easy precision needle, there's trigger platforming. Just loads of stuff and it's mostly cool.

My main complaint is that the vine screen of TheWWworld stage was neutered away during testing basically just because it was based on nonstandard vine placements, it would've been fun to play.

A needle game with way too many needlessly hard jumps sprinkled in across the stages that made those levels a grind that focused on those jumps. A couple examples:

seVens stage, room 2, last drop to the vine (also the 2nd save position here is in a terrible spot).
Shadows stage, room 1, save, 2, awkward corner jump towards the end.
Luciens stage, room 1, save 1, top left drop.


The save balance went all over the place. The visuals in some stages were not pleasing at all, especially the L-Needle area. The beginning of Coffee's stage was a terrible first impression on the stage. The rukito landing was used too often (the sideways spike right above a block that resembles a TAS landing). There are too many small things that piled up that made the game not that enjoyable for me.

Rating based on 100% clear.

Stages you should avoid (my personal opinion):
Coffee, Wind, Mirror, STAB

Otherwise good.

A pretty massive needle collab from the chinese community, featuring some 28 grouped into three categories - easy, hard and special. The naming is a bit misleading, as nothing in this game I would say really dips all the way into the easy realm and much of the stages in special are moreso just very hard.

Having completed all of easy, hard and about half of special whilst giving the rest of them a try, I can say this is definitely one of the more impressive needle collabs. It plays to its strengths well, which while being predominantly traditional engine needle (with a couple trigger needle exceptions and one oddball line stage) really has a lot of variety. There's a ton of different styles present, from windy long pathing saves to tricky gimmick manouvers between water and vines, the aforementioned trigger needle, short precise saves to the extreme of even having an L stage in it.

Production wise its very good all around, though this varies a bit from stage to stage. The menu system is fantastic and the quality of life features are what makes the game for me. With the difficulty and grind presented in many stages, I would not have even considered playing the game if not for the fact you can leave a stage at any time and be returned to the exact save you left off at and this should be a required feature in basically every needle collab of this style. Thanks to this, it probably resulted in my clearing the only L-needle screen I'll ever do, because the ability to just hop in and out as something on the side made it enjoyable in small bursts, whereas a standalone it just doesn't feel worth bothering with for me.

Gameplay wise, its needle through and through. Don't come into this expecting much for surprises because there isn't much. If you're interested in needle though, its probably worth giving a try - the ability to sample the stages and play the ones you like with no gated content and a wide array of difficulty available makes it a solid game to take a stab at from time to time.

Overall, its easily recommended to needle fans or those looking to get more into the genre. There's a lot of styles to try out to get a feel for what kind of styles and makers you like but keep in mind there really isn't anything easy in this game, so don't make it an early choice. It starts in the low 50s-60s for easy, mid 60s-70s for hard and ramps up to about an 80-85 for special. I would probably say approach with care though, committing to beating it is questionable as because while the variety means there's probably a style you will like, there's also an equally high chance there will be ones you don't and this will likely be hard enough that you'll have to grind your way through it for a while.
