  • Summary: You are a ninja in N+. Your god-like speed, dexterity, jumping power, and reflexes are all the result of an amazingly fast metabolism; sadly, so is your natural lifespan of 1.5 minutes. Like all Ninjas, you have an unquenchable thirst for gold and a natural propensity for exploring roomsYou are a ninja in N+. Your god-like speed, dexterity, jumping power, and reflexes are all the result of an amazingly fast metabolism; sadly, so is your natural lifespan of 1.5 minutes. Like all Ninjas, you have an unquenchable thirst for gold and a natural propensity for exploring rooms infested by increasingly lethal Ninja-killing robots. N emphasizes pacifism, humility, and the need to traverse 5 rooms before the end of your lifetime; a feat known only as ‘beating an episode’. In accordance with the teachings of N, it is your profound hope that one day you will develop your platforming skills, intelligence, and inexplicable ability to reincarnate to achieve total mastery of all 300 levels.

  1. Even if you don’t care about crafting your own stages, the virtually limitless stream of everyone else’s content will keep replay value high long after you’ve beaten all of the on?disc levels.
  2. Without a doubt one of the most addictive platform/puzzle games on the PSP, N+ is one of those games that will complete consume you in the best way possible.
  3. Idiotic menu issues aside, N+ still provides a great value and tons of fun for anyone who picks it up. With over 40 different levels and a near-endless supply of downloadable user-generated content, it's hard to not see the value in such a simple and fun game.
  4. N+ is almost completely free of distracting bells and whistles, and I’m going to give it the best compliment I can for this type of game: it would have made an excellent ’80s arcade game.
  5. Even if you’ve played N+ over Xbox Live, or the free PC version, $20 is a small price to pay to brandish this bundle of gaming bliss in the palm of your hands anywhere you damn well please.

    Figuring out how to solve each puzzle, creating your own and sharing them with others makes this an essential addition to your PSP library.
  7. Despite its addictive simplicity, N+ does eventually reach a breaking point. [Oct 2008, p.82]

    This game has been out in the internet for quite some time now, but the PSP version brings over 150 new levels and a couple old levels for usThis game has been out in the internet for quite some time now, but the PSP version brings over 150 new levels and a couple old levels for us to enjoy. Even though the graphics are not top-notch and the music is mostly chiptunes, this game is one of the best for the PSP. It brings a lot of gameplay, and it's replay value is really high. Clearly proves that well-designed levels and good gameplay can be combined to make a masterpiece. Collapse
