Out of any game to try and reimagine Uhuhu Spike in modern ways, Nukeru manages to be my absolute favorite. If you consider Wolfiexe's Dandy games to be a good improvement on the style, then like me you might consider this to be the start of a third generation. Like previous works, Nukeru has the interesting spike placement that always makes you feel relaxed and comfortable, whilst it manages to keep itself smooth by having no out-of-place saves, an issue some of those earlier titles have.

What Nukeru does differently however is what I think brings this sub-genre to its pinnacle: the addition of moving spikes. This subtle change to the formula makes it feel like this is truly a modern release because it immediately makes the others feel highly outdated now. The way triggers operate as well feels brand new in comparison to some of the usage in the Dandies, even including some interesting timed segments. There's also a fall in the game that is really cool to perform even though it is simple. These little details have made such an enormous change to the style, that I think this is what the future of Uhuhu-Likes should be. If it is, then I really am looking forward to more.

This is probably one of my favorite needle games, I would absolutely recommend it.

Very fun Uhuhu-like needle game. A few moving objects, and some minor gimmicks like sideways platforms and triggers. Good difficulty curve - it got tougher over time but stayed fun. The only save I wasn't a big fan of was the very final save, with a certain platform jump near the end of the segment becoming responsible for about a quarter of my overall playtime.

I would recommend to anyone wanting to chill out with some needle and play some interesting jumps without awkward gimmicks.

A pitch-perfect homage to the Uhuhu series, including persistent use of moving spikes and triggers in saves towards the end. There is also a liberal usage of platform boost setups, as well as the classic wacky spike shapes you'd expect to see. Every once in a while there is a platform stack that rockets you upwards like a tractor beam gone wild, and it's pretty fun to get launched by them. While I was close to rating this game as near perfect, it does feel like it went on just a bit too long--not to the degree other Uhuhu tributes have, but still maybe a tad longer than it should have. By now, I've been told this is an inherent part of the Uhuhu formula, and while I agree it's an element of the original games, I'm not sure it's worth emulating going forward. Then again, if a game is fun, maybe you don't want it to end? I often get the feeling of "is this the last screen' far too early in good games, so perhaps I'm not the best person to ask about this.

My first tourney clear (I think?) and a great time all around. My only direct complaint, besides the length, is the medley choice—it's not even a complaint, really, other than to say I only recognized one or two snippets, and they were so short I couldn't really enjoy them. That's more or less a failing of the 'anime medley' song prescription, not necessarily the game or the designer, so it's not a real fault... just part of the never-ending quest for the perfect soundtrack.

Gruhuhuvy all over.
