I love Hades-like games, but I'm bad at fangames, so what do I do? Do I get better? Do I grind for longer? No, I just wait for people to make easy ones.

This game really is an incredible little needle game. It's short, compact, succinct, to the point, doesn't beat around the bush, is in and out like the wind, and overall it is not a very long game. Sincerely though, it's all of those things, as well as quite comfortable to traverse (mostly) and especially satisfying to play through. Combine that with the great visuals and you've got yourself a recipe for goodness.

As the readme says, it set out to be probably the easiest hades-like game and it achieved this competently. Simple graphics, short precise saves and a short game in general. Captures the style and keeps the difficulty flat which should generally be how these go.

It's not changing the world in any way, but if you want an easier hades-like, this nails it.

Fun needle inspired by the likes of Hades. Features interesting, relatively precise jumps and acceptable difficulty balance, with the short amount of screens, stone-like tilesets and gradient background that characterize hades-like fangames. Music choice is nice, and the death sound isn't too loud, I guess. Only bad thing is the save with three diamonds, a little bit of pointless walking and a choke jump, and even that save wasn't that bad (Or maybe I'm just in a good mood, who knows).
It's just a fun, short needle game that does nearly nothing wrong. Would recommend.

I think this is what precision needle should strive to be. All the jumps are unique, and they push you into different movements. It also barely uses low jumps, instead creating interesting stuff with varying heights. The low difficulty also makes it approachable, and I'm glad the game didn't ruin itself trying to be hard.

I would absolutely recommend this game to needle fans looking to try out something that leans into precision a bit more, while remaining pretty easy.
