Neon Space (Review)

Story

Neon Space is a fun and simple but at the same time highly addictive game.
The goal of the game is to drive your little space ship from one end to another, dodging numerous obstacles, solving puzzles, opening new passages with checkpoints and discovering unique game mechanics by yourself. There are 50 levels, and there is also a cool medal system so you can always try your best for that shiny gold medal. If the game becomes too hard you can make it easier with your two in-game abilities slow and blink.

Slow ability- allows for the player to slow down everything except for the player itself.
Blink ability- allows you to jump a short distance. If you manage to time it right, you can even jump through some of the obstacles in the game.

These cool little tricks will have to be used on some levels to push you a bit closer to that medal. To make sure the game doesn’t become too boring, new mechanics and tricks are being added to some levels, just to keep it spiced up through the entire play time.

Review

Completed it within a hour tried to go for the last achievement afterwards (didn’t make it). Luckily there is some Ambient music in the game that’s the only reason why I not raged. Neon Space is a minimalistic adventure/puzzle game. I really love games in that genre. I must say for a game that looks so simplistic, It still made me really happy to play it.

Pros:
+ Good music in different genres
+ Simplistic looks but quite a hard game to play
+ Speedrun worthy
+ Trading cards

Cons:
– Almost unplayable with controller
– I got killed so many times because of the misplacement of my Mouse marker

8.5/10 This game is another gem in the world of minimalistic games. A must have for lovers of that genre!
