Platforming fans rejoice: one of the best entries in the genre, N++, just got a gigantic (and free!) update that immensely increases the amount of content in the game. The “Ultimate Edition update” adds several new modes to the game, including a hardcore mode where the timer never stops and deaths accumulate over the course of each level. In addition, the update adds more than 2000 levels to the game, which more than doubles the content that was already in the game. The total level count now stands at 4340.
N++ is a momentum based, tough as nails platformer where you take control of a ninja, darting about minimalist levels, avoiding traps and enemies, and trying to collect gold to open the exit. In addition to the massive single player campaign, N++ also contains a level editor, a sweet soundtrack, and both co-op and competitive multiplayer. Fans of Super Meat Boy will be right at home in N++. You can read the full announcement about the update here, and check out the launch trailer below:
If you act quickly, you can get an even better deal: N++ is discounted 50% until Sunday the 23rd on Steam. The Ultimate Edition update is free, so, if you act fast, you can grab it for $7.49. That works out to about 2/100ths of a cent per level. Not a bad deal at all.
Steam is home to a lot of sub-par, retro-styled games. N++ has received almost universal praise across the board. A giant, free update to an already great game is always a sign of a good developer.
