And Kongregate, and Newgrounds...

It's N+, down to the character design.

I wonder if this plays as good. If so, I may just buy it so I can have N on my ipod. It'll probably get removed if he didn't get approval from the original developer.

Man, I was hooked on N+ when I had the PSP but I don't want to buy this before knowing that it plays just as smooth as the original.

@Toastgames:
do you have permission from Metanet Software to use their assets? Although they made the original N as free software, they also have commercial product on XBLA, DS and PSP.

If not, i'm pretty sure you're not allowed to sell your game as-is- why not redo the art? If the engine is good, this can become completely your own game, rather than it being an obvious ripoff of somebody else's work.

I feel bad for sounding a bit too negative here, but this kind of thing happens a little too often on the appstore, and is definitely not cool.

Exactly. They even ripped off the "n" logo. The original N was freeware, not Open Source.

On the other side. Any impressions? lol. If the controls aren't 100% perfect, the game will be impossible.

Look kinda fun. Do you have some video clips so that I can have a further understanding of it. Thank you.

Hi all, I will start out by saying that from my knowledge, Metanet has not seen this game. The gameplay is not exact to N, Way of the Ninja. All levels are original and there are many key aspects of Ninjascape different as well. The graphics and logo are very similar in order to attract attention to an already popular game with a strong community.

As for the controls, I will honestly say this was my biggest concern in making this game and spend ample time making sure it works seamlessly. The controls ended up working better than I thought, and keep this game easy to pick up but with challenging level design.

I hope this helps,

After playing the game for a little bit I think the controls are a little unresponsive sometimes which is a really bad thing for a game like this where having to push a button repeatedly equals death. The controls need some work before I would recommend this game to any fan of N+.
