Editors' Review

Climb walls, steal gold, flip switches, and make your escape from a wide variety of deadly enemies in this fantastic and free 2D platformer. The addition of 200 new levels and new unlockable secrets help maintain a top rating for this ninja adventure. Gameplay at higher levels can be tricky, and some might find it slightly repetitive, but one of the main attractions of this game is its difficulty. If you're an obsessive-compulsive type looking for a great way to kill numerous hours with mindless ninja maneuvering, look no further--N is one of the best freeware games you'll find anywhere.

In N, you control a ninja through a series of underground rooms. You must escape each room via a locked door while avoiding deadly packs of homicidal robots. The filthy lucre on each level sustains your energy as you navigate your escapes. Run out of gold energy, and the game's over. Hidden traps and an unforgiving control system can result in repetitive gameplay, but that's a big part of the core experience--it's hard.

The design of this 2D platformer is simple and elegant. Created entirely in Flash, the graphics are inherently minimal, yet your ninja still has flair. Motion details are implemented well, and the interface--including an extensive help section--is superb. With a massive number of levels, an editor to create your own, and an online high-scores table with replays of the best performances ever, N is a modern freeware classic.

"Very Fun game!"

July 25, 2005  |  By Pred

 |  Version: N 1.4

Pros

-Decent Graphics.

-Is a vaery small file and an executionable, which means no installation required!

-Fun and challenging, yet not too hard.

-Is the full version of that game and is free.

-Becuase it is an Exacuaationable, it means that you can download it and play it at work or school, if they have a installation-blocker.

Cons

Sometimes lagged on my PC just a tiny bit, but not enough to disturb the gameplay.

"Difficult to play"

December 28, 2009  |  By nmweatherman

 |  Version: N 1.4

Pros

Quick download, small footprint

Cons

Not enough controls on the Ninja...

Summary

I tried the very first level for awhile but all I could get the little gold-greedy Ninja to do was run right and run left with my R & L arrow keys. Tried other keys like Enter and spacebar...nothing. Oh I got him bouncing in the air off of one of those Bouncy-Thingys but he never went high enough to go anywhere.

Life moves on. I moved on.

"Extremely addictive....hours of fun or frustration :)"

December 26, 2009  |  By TruthSeekr

 |  Version: N 1.4

Pros

--Excellent physics-based level design
--Simple, yet intuitive and responsive controls
--Over a hundred levels plus user created levels equals hours of fun.
--Level editor allows you to make your own levels and play them yourself or submit online

Cons

--User created levels are absolute rubbish and impossible to play
--Level editor is not very user-friendly and requires the 'thinking' of a programmer

Summary

This is simply THE BEST no-installation-required free game there is. Period.
You take control of a simply stick-figure "Ninja" and go from level to level to get to the all-elusive exit...which is marred with limited time and deadly enemies.
It is addictive, fun, and also frustrating...too bad if your patience is limited.

"Small disk size,2D,level-based game"

October 05, 2008  |  By random_dude

 |  Version: N 1.4

Pros

Challenging levels, wide range of difficulty, very addicting. And the explosions are mildly amusing. The level editor is a great addition, as you can create and play your own levels.

Cons

Can get annoyingly difficult, and getting stuck midway through a level is a major pain. Some levels, especially in the 70-90 range, are almost too challenging, but there are not required for you to play (unless you're gaing for 100% completion)

Summary

A small game in size but not in content.The option of choosing your own levels is great, as novices and experts alike can play. Basically, a very fun game to play, and easily addictable (is that even a word?). Never get caught playing games that take 10-15 seconds to close ever again! Requires a Flash player to open and play

January 10, 2008  |  By thorpwnall

 |  Version: N 1.4

Pros

Very fun, easy to pick up hard to master. great for slacking off in class with it's "boss mode" and you can even make youre own levels, though the 500 it comes with are very sufficient
