L-game on the easier side. There's some low jumps, but it should be pretty manageable for most people.

An interesting L needle screen on the easier side. The game tries to experiment with unusual jump heights and maneuvers while refraining from being too precise or requiring any sort of cancels, and for the most part it's successful, with some unique drops and satisfying climbing sections. Recommended for a chill short playthrough for experienced players or a look into the genre for beginners, and I believe that even those who dislike L needle can enjoy this one.

I’ve never been *against* L needle or precision needle as a concept. I think one of the most beautiful aspects of fangames is that people have so many different ideas of what’s fun. Some people enjoy more light-hearted trap games. Some people push their limits with high intensity avoidances and boss fights. Some people enjoy artistic and abstract needle experiences. Some people embrace the brain rot and just play the most inexplicable and nonsense games that you can find. It’s a lot different from say, Mario rom hacks or Celeste mods. Whereas the aforementioned are extremely good, a majority of people end up creating their take on the source material, leading me personally to feel like there is a shallow amount of variety in comparison to fangames. As a result, I believe that the variety in fangames is the main reason I keep coming back to them and is in many ways their biggest strength.

Then there’s precision needle. Precision needle is a niche within a niche within a niche. The amount of people who will be into these games are so small even relative to our already small community. A lot of people write off precision needle entirely as just “cancer” and other diseases that basically are synonyms for dogshit. There *is* an audience for precision needle though. I don’t think it’s the reason people get into fangames, but it is a reason some people still play them, and that’s why I think it’s worth giving a fair shot.

Take The L is the first game listed in Bronze of Precision FSR. For the people that designed precision FSR, they put this game here and as a result, it will end up as a fair amount of people’s first experience with a full precision needle game. Based on that metric, along with the fact that it’s explicitly designed to be a beginner L game, I thought it was good! The game assumes some level of familiarity with needle, which is in my opinion the correct decision, but it basically just asks you to be more precise with your existing knowledge. If you come out of this game and enjoy it, maybe you should give more precision needle a fair shake. You’ll definitely end up learning a lot more about the intricacies of needle, and the real requirements of precision.

Also this game even has the problem of one save on the screen just being inexplicably much harder and worse than the others. Be prepared for that when playing these games too lmao.

Requires some knowledge of aligns and expects low jumps in places, so this difficulty rating is probably misleading.

Generally pretty fun L needle, I actually played through the game twice in a row which is rare for me. Some of the saves are actually a little too simple for their own good (especially the one that is literally just doing a single 2f), but otherwise I think any needle player who appreciates a technical challenge should enjoy it.

My favourite L-game that I've played by far, though that's not saying much considering I've only ever played like three others.
