Brandished is the 14th Expert stage in Super Monkey Ball 2 and the 33rd Expert stage in Super Monkey Ball Deluxe. It also appears as the 143rd Ultimate stage with continues and the 183rd without continues.
This stage is made up of a big, circular platform with a sewing needle attached to a stake in the middle. The sewing needle swings in a fast 360 degree motion. The goal is attached to the tip of the needle.
To get to the goal, roll onto a certain area of the stage where the goal will come swinging at you. Stay put. Your monkey will break the goal tape when the goal comes to you if you roll to the right area. If it looks like the needle is about to hit you, stay there, or roll slightly back. With this strategy, you should beat the stage.
