Fans of flitting, gold-addicted ninjas can download puzzling platformer N+ for half-price on Xbox Live Arcade, as part of the Deal of the Week festivities!
Microsoft are the only retailer for Xbox Live Arcade games, so this is the only deal for N+, but half-price is nothing to be sniffed at! An update of the popular Flash game, N+ impressed critics enough to earn 83/100 on MetaCritic, and be awarded an A- from 1UP.
N+ is set in a stylish, futuristic world of mazy corridors and rooms, enraged, death-dealing robots, and inexplicably abandoned pots of gold. Your lithe, stick-figure ninja must use all his acrobatic grace to avoid danger and peril, with the game utilising realistic rag-doll physics to emulate comic, flailing animation. The ninja is graced with a s0-called 'high-metabolism', enabling him to perform his death-defying feats, although what he craves is gold!
The updates to N+ included a map-editor, where players could build their own gauntlets, and also a plethora of multiplayer options, of both the co-operative and competitive variety. As per usual with Live Arcade Games, numerous map-packs and custom themes are available for fans should they be willing to pay the somewhat inflated prices!
