Somewhere in the space between L-needle and just normal 'precision' needle, there exist 'Hades-likes', so named because... well, come on. Anyway, this is one such game, a bunch of tightly packed corridors with specific and highly demanding jumps but peppered with frequent save points. Your enjoyment/tolerance of this game will come directly for your affinity for grinding a single jump or small set of jumps to pixel perfection. For me, this is right up my alley, but for some reason the in-game music didn't play, and the tileset struck me as somewhat bland/generic. I love the idea of embodying deities and otherworldly concepts as fangames, especially the notion of 'translating' them into needle, so this was super fun all around. Could have been more in the package, but still a great experience for what feels like an amplified jtool testing ground.

"Nyx is the Greek goddess (or personification) of the night. A shadowy figure, Nyx stood at or near the beginning of creation and mothered other personified deities such as Hypnos (Sleep) and Thanatos (Death), with Erebus (Darkness). Her appearances are sparse in surviving mythology, but reveal her as a figure of such exceptional power and beauty that she is feared by Zeus himself." - Wiki

Vierandice's take on Dagger's world-famous needle style, and it's actually pretty fun, aside from a few jumps here and there. I'd recommend if you're looking for good Hades-like games.
