N++ Ultimate Edition update adds gobs more levels

Super-focused platformer N++ [official site] already had over 2,000 levels but pssh, that's nothing. Today sees the launch of N++'s huge 'Ultimate Edition' update with almost two thousand extra levels as well as a new 'Hardcore' mode and some new pretties. Yes, the Ultimate Edition is a free update and not a separate new release. Yes, I too wish they had named it N+++.

What Makes N++ Different To Other Platformers?

This is The Mechanic, where Alex Wiltshire invites developers to discuss the inner workings of their games. This time, N++ [official site]. What makes Metanet’s long-running N series different to other platformers? Each level takes place on a single screen, and that makes it uncommon, but certainly not unique.

If you haven't played it, you should go and do that right now. It's free. Caution is advised, however, because N might consume you. It's hard…

Have You Played… N?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. N consumed me. For months, for hours a day, I'd be poking at arrow keys to perfect jumps, wall-jumps and slides in order to dodge electrifying scooters, crushing thwumps, explosive mines and laser-targeted missiles. My reward: a replay at the end of each…

N Times: The Way Of The Ninja Updates

Metanet's charming platformer N is so old the only wallpapers available at their site are in a 4:3 aspect ratio. That's as close to a 'yo momma' joke as I'm comfortable making, but it's also true - the high-res desktop backgrounds are 1600x1200. Out of curiosity, is there anyone reading this on a 4:3 monitor? Are you visiting your parents? The platform puzzle game was…
