Very well made game - modern style linear needle with simple but effective gimmicks surrounding said needle.

Note that I've yet to finish the guest stage, will update the review at a later stage

Nerfed version of I Wanna Destroy the Needleverse and it's really, really good.

Let's state the obvious first, this game looks so incredibly good. One of the best looking fangames out there i would say.

There are 4 stages in this game. Each stage also has a secret. If you get the 4 secrets, you unlock a guest stage area, with stages from Wolfi, Skulldude and Dribix. They are all very solid, with Dribix being my personal favorite. After that is a neat, if a bit short section called The Core which uses most of the gimmicks found in the game to great effect, followed by an escape sequence.

I can't really speak of how the nerfs are in comparison to the original game since i never cleared that but the balance seemed good.

No real opinions on the music, wasn't my style.

Do recommend.

Both visually and gameplay-wise this is quite the amazing needle game, highly recommended.
Do keep in mind that the secrets and what they unlock are nearly half the game themselves, and contain some of the best parts.

Nice game with great visuals and music choices. The game uses speed and gravity modifiers very heavily, though, so if you're not into that you might not like it. Roughly the same difficulty curve is maintained throughout except for the secret entrances which will have you backtracking areas using some kind of gimmick that makes the screen significantly more difficult than normal.

Stages 2 - 4 and the second secret are the best parts of the game, together with the guest stages. Secrets 3 and 4 were very easy and felt pointless.

Sat down and finished this in one go. I played the original Destroy the Needleverse and almost finished, but got frustrated with some of the late-game gimmicks (people who played the game can imagine which) and stopped. EZ version lowered the difficulty enough that I finished without issue.

Overall, I'd say this is an extremely high quality fangame now. The original is good, but the relatively high difficulty was somewhat of a black mark due to how it somewhat contrasted with the gimmicky, energetic tone of the game. Now that everything is much more reasonable, the game flows by at a great pace and the player is just bombarded with a fun variety of cleverly executed gimmicks. It's a great experience, even having played most of the game already, especially with the stunning visuals on top of everything. The ending loses some of its impact since the player hasn't spent as much time with the game as expected, but still, it's very nice.

If I have one issue with the game, it's that sometimes save balance just disappears. Like here https://i.imgur.com/yObpvdV.jpg . A reasonable save, then... nothing. Thankfully, it's not a big issue: Save unbalance with unreasonably hard saves ruin the experience, but save unbalance with unreasonably easy saves are just a moment of confusion before the game continues. So, this is a problem, but not an urgent one.

Anyway, yeah, great and fun stuff. I enjoyed my time with it (again) and I genuinely think the EZ mode here was a worthwhile time investment for the developers to make. I'm glad they did it.

(If only they removed the reverse controls gimmick!)
