Play OverviewPlay Overview

N Plus Plus (2016) is a physics-based jumping puzzle game. You run and jump around each level to collect gold tokens while avoiding hazards and unlocking the door. It's unique because the simple visuals let you focus on accurate control, fast reflexes and quick planning. Your tiny character can make wild jumps but you'll get trapped, exploded or lasered to death if you are not in the right place at the right time.

N stands for Ninja and this is the third and final game in a trilogy of running and jumping puzzle games (the others being N and N+) each one bigger and with more features than the previous game. Each level in N++ has a fixed camera view of a uniquely shaped room which contains collectable gold, exploding bombs, lasers and other hazards, as well as a switch that opens the only exit. You make huge jumps which carry you long distances due to momentum.

You get 5 levels to complete in 90 seconds before you can move on to the next set. There are 4340 levels in the game (this is open to expansion), some more devious than others. Collecting gold extends your time, or you can choose to go straight for the switch and the exit. In this respect, you can choose your own personal aim for the game - speed or full completion of the level. You can play solo or with friends in cooperative mode or adversarial mode. There is also a level creator for you to make and play community-made levels.

The game is simple to understand, with simple graphics, but the gameplay is devious and some levels may take a long time to master, and with the number of levels available it should keep you busy for a very long time.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 7 for Violence. It features non-realistic violence in a child-friendly setting or context and contains violence against humans that is not shown but is implied. N++ is all about using your momentum to complete levels and get high scores, but in this sci-fi world, there’s a slew of inadvertently homicidal enemy robots trying to prevent you from completing your goal. Features violence towards tiny stickmen who explode pretty violently upon death.
User-Generated Content: This game includes content created by other players, such as maps, outfits and items, that are not reflected in the game rating.
