Conclusion: Even though the sound isn’t quite up to par I have to say that this is a perfect purchase for anyone that owns a Nintendo DS. For only $20 you will get about as much gameplay as a normal over priced DS game. Online play is fun and playing with your friends wirelesses is more enjoyable that certain modern games. If you own a Nintendo DS then buy this game right now.
Excerpt: N+ on the DS is one of the best injections of mobile, digital short-term adrenaline bursts one can find. Atari has taken the previous releases and refined the package into a stellar handheld release. It is ironic that the best Atari release in recent memory is a game that could almost be replicated on a 2600, and far more compelling a gameplay package than recent overblown next-gen efforts have been, despite its simplicity.
Excerpt: They make it look so easy. The ninjas, I mean. They’re so awesome at what they do. Leaping around rooftops is like playing hopscotch to them.

Excerpt: “You are a ninja. And like all ninjas, you have an unquenchable thirst for gold.” So says the manual for “N+”, Metanet Software's new side-scrolling platformer on the DS. Wait—isn't it leprechauns who have an unquenchable thirst for gold? Whatever, Metanet. I'm willing to play along. N+ is the sequel to 2004's “N”, a free internet Flash game by programmers Raigan Burns and Mare Sheppard.
