This is the Blind Needle game for FASF2022, a collab between me and 3 brilliant minds consisting of fairly difficult, puzzly gimmick needle. Most of the difficulty will typically come in the form of putting your thinking cap on, but once you've gotten the solution everything can be made consistent.

Would recommend that if you have a unique control layout to make sure to rebind an appropriate up and down key; not necessarily required but will probably be a bit more convenient later on.

Here's a link to a playlist for the game's BGM:

I have made the game open-source:

Challenging gimmick needle that avoids going overboard while remaining creative and varied. While the creator message and readme play up the puzzle elements, I found the execution to be the primary source of difficulty. Most of the saves are fairly elaborate, but overall the experience was most akin to a Rukito game or CN3-inspired design; satisfaction came from building muscle memory and slowly working my way through each save, rather than puzzling out a route in and of itself.

While I'm not sure it was quite as advertised, I enjoyed this game a lot and was especially impressed by the balance and save placement. It's definitely worth a play if you enjoy harder platforming.

EDIT: the original review below only pertains to the first main stage of the game, which is as far as I played when I originally tried the game out. the rest of the game looks much much better

extremely uncomfortable movements that feel very rough around the edges really bring down the experience for me. it feels uncomfortable in a way thats hard to describe, almost as though the game was designed for an entirely different set of physics but happens to be possible with fangame physics. the movements and general structure of the saves are cool and theres a lot of interesting ideas, but it often feels like im fighting against the controls and having to awkwardly stutter everywhere, theres no flow to the jumps at all. no rating as I did not finish

Good game with some really cool gimmicks, however I agree with cloud that some movements are very unpleasant and particularly near the beginning (involving every shift release on bumpers for example). Some cycles involving speed changers also felt "try until it works" which is not very pleasant to grind.
Game says that there are easter eggs and gives you cable (????) at the end but I have no idea of their use.
