Summary

If you remember games like N+ (and you should because those games are awesome) then you have played Pinkman+ as it’s a carbon copy of those games. The only twist they add to proceedings is that you have a jetpack which can help a lot with jumps especially long jumps. Outside of that, it’s not only the same but also a bit more outdated and regressive almost as you do nothing but getting to the exit. N+ at least had timers and bits to collect for unlocks but Pinkman+ has none of that so depending on what type of gamer you depend on if this is a good or bad thing, for me, it’s a bad thing as I like the extra challenge to collecting. Away from that Pinkman+ does nail the controls and they are tight and responsive as you need and level designs are clever, the colors of levels and your character will randomize every life or restart so that’s kinda cool. Overall I found Pinkman+ to be a safer more dull younger brother of N+ that is fine but lacks more than it innovates.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
