definitely dono's best, and coincidentally, hardest game yet. takes a lot of cues from dopamine's stuff so i'm automatically biased to like it but play it if you like the spooky atmosphere stuff as much as i do. 3 stages kinda short and the difficulty balance is kinda strange but aside from one or two screens it's solid

One of, if not possibly the best needle game I've ever played. It oozes with personality and uniqueness. Gimmicks are applied in mostly conventional ways but with a high level of reward when strung together. Difficulty balance isn't a straight line, which means sometimes you get a relaxing break of a level or two inbetween some more challenging stuff. Some of the screens in this game are my favorite needle screens ever, bar none. The tileset changes mostly become less interesting, rather than more, and if there was some kind of loose narrative or even a sense of theme above the playable content, this would be a perfect game for me. As is, I still intensely recommend it to anyone in the scope of fangames, needle or not, and especially to intermediate players who are looking for challenges and novel ideas to expand their understanding of what's possible. Simply amazing.

Managed to keep me interested in the game the entire time with fun platforming, a recommended experience for needle players.

A really good Dopamine styled game made by Dono, and by far his best game.

The highlight for me was the visuals, especially the first stage where it felt like a bona fide dopamine game at points. Along with that, the needle was also incredibly fun mainly relying on water3 which is used very creatively at points.

Overall, I would recommend that you would try this game. Good job, Dono.

A fantastic Tethys-like that deviates from that game in key ways. Notably, the use of jtool gimmicks adds a lot. The needle here is much more fun than Tethys, trading the cramped awkward jumps for fun, unique movements. A lot of the jumps feel very distinct, and they're designed well enough to carry the same visual weight with spike designs as Tethys. Additionally, this game deviates by having 3 stages instead of 2. This is cool, I liked having more, and it helped progress the themes.

Thematically, this game is about death, with a lot of religious iconography in the block designs, and stage 2's church background. I like how it conveys a journey to heaven, but I felt like the themes were weaker than in Tethys. The title felt disconnected, making a pun off of Dopamine rather than a thematically resonant title. The clear screen was a disappointment, as it's not very special, especially in comparison to Tethys's haunting image. This is very much a personal opinion, but I felt this game didn't resonate with me as much artistically. However, it's still very fun needle, and I'd recommend it.
