N+ is a very cool game, in which players play as a ninja running around very simplistic 2D worlds. The aim of the game is to collect gold blocks, reach the final door, avoid various obstacles, and do it in as short a time as possible. There are no other games on the Xbox Live Arcade like this. There was also an expansion pack released in July 2008 to provide extra levels for experienced players. The game (excluding downloadable content) is 800GP which is around $10 or £6.
The graphics in the game are extremely simplistic, as are the sounds, but this makes the game feel very stylish and smooth. What the game lacks in complex sounds and visuals it more than makes up for in gameplay. The player is encouraged to move through 100 levels of greater and greater complexity, and if those 100 levels weren't enough, there is also the option to create your own levels, and a very fun multiplayer race made that can be played online. The controls are very easy to learn making this a great pickup-and-play game.
I highly recommend this game as it is great value for money, and there is no other game like it on the Xbox Live Marketplace.
