Super Phantom Cat Pays Tribute To Retro Platformers With A Style All It’s Own On The App Store

SUPER PHANTOM CAT pays homage to Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong Country, and Sonic The Hedgehog. This time, you don’t collect coins, bananas or gold rings . . . but data.

The data collected allows Chemist White (the game’s protagonist) to change into a number of characters and eventually become the all-powerful Super Phantom Cat.

The world of Super Phantom Cat is filled with challenges that will make any platforming fan jump for joy. You’ll need quick reflexes as you pull off incredible feats such as bouncing on a monster’s head to land on a difficult-to-reach platform — or rapidly jumping between small platforms to get across a massive chasm.

N Plus Plus, The Death Defying Action Platformer PS4 Review

n++ review

My love affair with the N Series began in 2008 with the release of N+, which was the second game in the series. However I have to be honest, N+ wasn’t even on my radar as being a game I needed or wanted to play. Based on what I’d seen at the time, it looked to be far too simple and I couldn’t see the value contained within it.

And then I downloaded the demo. By the time I’d beaten all of the levels within it, I knew I needed to buy it. With that being said, could N++ possibly live up the the high expectations that I approached it with?

Just in case you’re unfamiliar with N++, take a moment to familiarize yourself before continuing.
