Easily Red's best game that I've played.

According to the readme, she's "losing motivation to make stuff that isn't aids" and I wish that statement were the opposite. This game has a few pretty cool maneuvers in it. That said, it also has some really annoying or awkward jumps in it that really break the flow of the game. I am of the opinion she should try to make more stuff sorta like this, or at least around this difficulty. Just chop the annoying out of place saves.

I don't dock points for music because it's personal preference, but the first stage's song is so insufferable I had to mute it. On that line of thinking, I kind of wish Red could expand beyond edgy or depressive songs that literally just say shit like "I want to die."

Decent water-based needle, worth ten minutes if you're bored.

Comfort Needle is one of the only games I've seen that tries to implement a particular feeling while you're playing it. There are games that try to be creepy or scary like The Cardinal House or Depression, but never have I seen a game that tries to make the player relaxed and comfortable. If that's what RedTeFox was going for, I have to give props for it because it is well executed.

The design and music play two key elements as to why I think this game is good. The tiles and background are very comforting and calm. It never tries to be showy or in-your-face and it blends in very well while you're playing the game. The music is also very well-chosen since most of the picks are very slow lyrical songs that evoke a very comforting feeling to the player while they're playing. Along with that, Joji is really good at making very calming and smooth songs, which is ironic since he was formerly FilthyFrankTV.

The gameplay is also very well done. The gameplay is very simple at the beginning, but then it uses water gimmicks for the other half of the game. The water gimmicks don't feel out of place and some of the jumps implemented using them are very creative and fun. Some of the water saves flow so well together that it feels like I was playing CN3's Floor 31 water stage again, which is always a good sign..

Overall, the title doesn't lie. It's a very comforting short needle game that feels very relaxing and stress-free. Would recommend.

Choppy platforming made this not a particularly fun experience. It's not terrible or anything, but there are much better games out there.
