Alphazetica is a needle collab game made for the blind needle race in FM 2020. I saw it there in its entirety (sans the final room as it did not yet exist at that time) and was excited beyond belief to play the game. Looks alone told me that I was in for a treat whenever the game released officially. Today, the game released, and thus began my perfect journey through Alphazetica.

Alphazetica is a floor-game, essentially, with you traveling through the alphabet rather than some arbitrarily chosen number like 50, 100, or what have you. There are five different sections of the game, all of which are equally spectacular. I am unsure of who made what, but it matters not. Every maker deserves equivalent praise, everyone is in top form here. From beginning to end, I was so wholly satisfied with what I was playing that I couldn't help but finish the game in one sitting. Each screen is impeccably made, the flow from beginning to end is transcendental, the music choices splendiferous. There is not an ounce of a fifth of even a suggestion of a flaw in this game, and to say as much about a collab game is something I've never had the opportunity to say, and I would not be surprised if that opportunity never came again.

The gameplay itself is more or less all gimmick needle, and though most of the gimmicks in play should be familiar to nearly all fangame players, they're all utilized in such fashions that it feels intrinsic, like these gimmicks were designed way back when purely so they could eventually be put to use here. The more novel gimmicks, all of which are found in the final level, are of course brilliant. I'd pick favorites, but there's no point in that as they're all just as good as each other.

This is a legendary game, one that makes me happy to be apart of this community. Chatran, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the catalyst for this. And I thank the rest of you makers as well for lending your masterful skills to Alphazetica.

If you're not already playing this game, get to it!

Thoroughly polished in several ways. It has great variety and slick visuals along with creative and fun design. Also teases with some interesting gimmicks you'd wanna see more of. Chatran's apple room is one of the best needle screens I've played.

Very little to object to!

Really great needle game that usually focuses on gimmicks at a fast-moving pace, I found it to be pretty enjoyable.

Probably the best thing this game has is a constant flow of progression that makes gimmicks come and go rather quickly, meaning the experience always stays interesting and isn't a slog. I will say in contrast to this I am not a fan of the first stage, since it's 5 screens of pretty much the same jump refresher usage over and over again, it makes for a bad first impression (and the grid in the background looks ugly). After that first stage, the game constantly stays excellent throughout and is some of the best gimmick Needle I have played. My favorite screen in the game comes from the middle of the game where a bunch of apples comes out in different ways and you're trying to dodge them in your path, it's a really simple yet great idea that is executed well. The Melting Pot stage in general is pretty damn good and basically plays like a "Thank you-" game.

Overall, if you like gimmick needle, you will likely love this game and should give it a try.
