N: Puzzle Platformer with Physics and Style

July 25th, 2006 | Filed under: Design, Games, Mathematics, Programming | 3 Comments »


N (as in Ninja) from Metanet Software is the best (flash) game ever made…the simplicity of design and gameplay bubbles up into a fabulously dynamic experience…seriously, check it out.  Plus the website has a bunch of great tutorials on some pretty advanced collision detection techniques. 

from the website: 

N has been described as reminiscent of lode runner — you're a little dude running around in a puzzle-y world inhabited by enemies.

But in N, there's a twist: the ninja is driven not only by a thirst for gold, but also by a physics simulation.

Death, which happens often, is quite animated.
