Excerpt: N+ impressed me during my time in the Atari booth back at E3 in the year of our Lord 2009. For some odd reason we lost track of this game, and never got it on the review track. That mistake has been rectified with this Playstation Portable (PSP) review.
Summary: Parents need to know that N+ is based on a Flash game that was playable on the Internet for free, but very limited when compared to the official PSP or DS version. The game does utilize a ninja, but no weapons are used by the game player in the game.
Excerpt: They say there is beauty in simplicity, and that is exactly the philosophy that SilverBirch Studios aims to capitalize upon with their portable adaptation of Metanet Software’s ninja platform/puzzle IP.
Summary: It may not be the best looking game on the PSP, but N+ proves that it can more than hang with the big boys. Atari's newest action game features hundreds of levels, downloadable content, compelling multiplayer levels, a level creator and much, much more ... and it's only $20.
Summary: There's not a lot of middle ground when it comes to N+; it will either remind you of everything you loved about classic 2D platformers ... or dredge up the nightmares of everything you hate. It's a game that requires near perfect jump controls, a light touch and tons of patience.
Excerpt: What is it?
The flash game N, which features a simple graphical style on a complex physics engine, has been reworked into a retail release called N+ with some optional visual enhancements and a number of …
Conclusion: N+ ist vollkommen simpel gestaltet und doch einmal ganz was anderes. Der minimalistische Stil macht sich gut auf dem großen Display der PSP und lenkt nicht mit irgendwelchen optischen Spielereien von der guten Physik, der spaßigen Steuerung und somit der Jagd zum Zieltor ab.
Pros: simples, aber sehr forderndes Hüpfgameplay, sehr ordentlicher Umfang, präzise Steuerung, interessanter, minimalisitscher Stil, Level-Editor mit Online-Tausch
Cons: später bestialischer Schwierigkeitsgrad, Drücken der Starttaste führt nach Levelversuch zum Sofortabbruch, immer gleiche, irgendwann nervende Musik, kein Game Sharing
