In our final episode of Side by Side Joel and I take a look at Metanet Software’s triple-distilled platformer, N++.
In recent years the sublime Rayman Origins and Legends have been platforming highlights for me, but as much as they give the mustachioed portly plumber a good run and jump for his money, N++ is the nimbler and more focused of the three — in fact, it’s laser focused, with homing missiles, heat seeking drones and everything. N++ is pure and powder dry, but what it lacks in personality, it more than makes up for with a beautiful, immaculate and rewarding movement model, all set to a killer pulsing soundtrack (check out Rival Consoles’ I Left The Party or the game’s incredible trailer to get an idea).
As a solo experience then, N++ is superlative, but how does it fare side by side with a friend? Watch our video below or directly on YouTube to find out. You can read more notes and comments from Joel over on Electron Dance.
