Thanks for the review BuggyI've been playing Neon Chrome for a week...
What a great mini-review! I ended up splashing out on this game on the back of your write-up! And I concur. I think I actually prefer it to Invisible Inc, although on paper, the PT in me would tell me otherwise. I generally can't stand shooters, but this one really does have a lot going for it. It'd say it's a cross between Space Marshals and Invisible Inc., dipped in neon, with a fantastic soundtrack. For the money, the soundtrack alone is worth the price for me.I've been playing Neon Chrome for a week on PC: it's very cool, indeed. It plays like a rogue twin-stick shooter in randomly generated office buildings. Each run sees you take control of a new avatar with his/her own set of skills and equipment. During the course of the run, your asset will find new weapons, learn new skills, install new cyberware. Only to fail miserably on the next floor of course. In between runs, you spend hard earned creds to boost your base abilities (health, damage…). The game proudly bears its name: everything is gorgeously lit in colored neon. The music is good too. In the end, as far as neon and chrome go, it really feels like playing an action-packed Invisible Inc. And it is surprisingly good.
Now I think I won't fall for the iOS version as I usually don't care for twin-stick touch control. But I must say that I'm rather happy with the PC version and that maybe some of you better thumb-skilled fellows may like this blend of cyberpunk rogue action.
