Pinkman+ tells the story (and I use the term lightly) of a stray pinkskin who has the ability to jump and reach new heights thanks to a very handy jetpack. Just like in Super Meat Boy, players must run, jump and fly through various dangerous levels to complete 100 levels and survive in the deadly environment called Mind.

So Pinkman+ is a dynamic 2D action platformer in which you have to reach the end of each level. It sounds simple, but you still have to open a door in each level by flipping a switch somewhere before going through. It’s pretty easy at first, but the further you get, the harder it becomes to flip the switch. You don’t have to do anything special, a simple touch on the way out is enough to open the door.

After a few levels you discover the jetpack, which allows you to fly a short distance to reach the switch or the exit, or to dodge the deadly spikes. Some later levels will contain items that allow you to fly further. This allows you to navigate through a short maze full of spikes and dodge homing missiles. From time to time you will also need to activate additional switches that disable certain blocks to progress.

Although the game has long been released on PC, known simply as Pinkman, the console versions include some additional features, such as checkpoints in each level, a speed timer, and additional color palettes. Overall, Pinkman + has no flaws (pun intended), but it drags on. On my first session with the game, I reached level 33 (out of 100), and honestly, I stuffed it. I had to do/play something, because despite the variety of levels, the premise is rather simplistic and somewhat repetitive.

The presentation of Pinkman+ is definitely a highlight. The levels are beautiful and colorful, though very simple, with a level of blocking close to that of Atari and a touch of 80s style. What’s really interesting is that every time you die and restart a level, or at the checkpoint, the colors of the level change into 16 amazing color palettes; this may confuse you at first, but it’s a clever trick that never gets boring. The soundtrack is also one of the best I’ve heard in a long time; it’s 80s inspired synth-wave; a very upbeat and unique soundtrack that adds to the fresh feel. This is definitely a soundtrack I would want to buy.

Pinkman+ is definitely worth the price of admission. It’s fun and challenging, but not as crazy as other similar games. The visual and aural experience is unique, something we haven’t experienced often; the game’s visuals blend so well with the soundtrack. My biggest complaint is that it’s long-winded; 100 levels is a lot, so you probably won’t get through it in one sitting, but in short bursts it’s a great game.
