Rewind Review: N+ (XBLA)

N+ was developed by Slick Entertainment, and published by Metanet Software. It was released February 20, 2008 for 800MSP.

You play as a nameless ninja who nimbly jumps past every danger in his way through a highly mechanized and gray world.

Alas, appearances often find themselves impaled, repeatedly, on the sharp spike walls of reality.
