40 floors of surprisingly decent needle in a variety of styles, with Koishi and Kokoro to congratulate you at the end. The difficulty balance is great and all of the saves feel distinct; it's straight jtool needle from beginning to end, and not really long or hard enough to be memorable, but if you need a needle fix you could do much worse.

I think the game might have been better off pared down to 33 screens, though. The first two tilesets are mostly generic 32px placements and didn't really make for a good first impression. I'm glad I stuck with it, but I really wasn't sure if it would be worth it at first.

Pretty good needle that vary in quality depending of the floor but enjoyable overall. The last floor is the best part of the game, wish some floors have more align markers I'm especially thinking about 32f last save which has a align dependent jump.

This game does a lot right, but the parts it got wrong really weigh it down. As moogy said, it's jtool needle that doesn't do much that's adventurous. However, the quality is highly variable; screen 33, for example, has some really creative vine pathing, while screens 24 and 35 are horrible nightmares. I partially softlocked in 24 (saved into a block), which, in combination with cancerous miniblocks and claustrophobic pathing, almost ruined the game for me. Screen 35, on the other hand, is one jump—a single-jump downward plane into a 1 or 2 frame perfect double jump through a corner, at a frame perfect jump height. It's pretty unpleasant.

Overall, the game's pretty good, with high highs and low lows. I wouldn't recommend it to beginners; it's a good intermediate challenge, and would make a decent needle romp for the veterans out there.
