In a nutshell, Neon Chrome does set out what it aims to do by giving you a decent top-down shooter that is fulfilling enough to play through at least once. The randomised level layout keeps the action diverse and can drive some to keep playing a long time after you first see the credits roll. It may look very low budget in presentation but what it lacks in visuals, it makes up for in atmosphere.

The game is solid, fun, and kept me entertained for quite a while. Sure, it can be frustrating at times, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a great game. When you have the chance, pick this game up. You’ll get through it… eventually…

Neon Chrome is an addictive, isometric rogue-like, but its simplicity prevents it from competing with bigger titles such as Enter the Gungeon, or The Binding of Isaac.

All in all, it’s great and on-point without being too one-dimensional. That feeling this game gives to the players every time they discover something new, may it be cash from slain enemies or secret rooms to further progress through the game’s level, makes them want to stay immersed for hours on end. Though minor flaws are inevitable, at the end of it all Neon Chrome can and will still give you your money’s worth once you start playing. ‘Nuff said.

I’ve actually been enjoying Neon Chrome for quite some time on the PC and am thrilled that it has finally made its way to the Switch, even moreso that it has come over quite flawlessly. Beating the Overseer is no easy feat but what I love the most about the game is that it continues to scale itself up even past that initial victory and you’ll be able to continue to test your skills and your load outs against consistently formidable resistance. In some ways it is when all of the skill options are finally available to you that the game most comes to life, throwing exciting challenges at you and demanding that you give it your full attention to persevere. While I’ve played many roguelike shooters and enjoy them all I hold Neon Chrome up as one of my absolute favorites for multiple reasons.

Neon Chrome's environmental destruction and bright, cyberpunk colors do a lot to help it stand out from a crowd of dark and dreary rogue-likes.  Giving players a sense of progression helps motivate you to play through multiple rounds, and the procedurally generated levels mean you are always doing your best to scout ahead and make a plan for the next room, whether that be taking out a few walls or running in guns blazing.

If you're up for a satisfying roguelike twin stick shooter then Neon Chrome fits the bill.

The game has a lot on offer and for a reasonable price. I enjoyed playing this release for my Neon Chrome review. While it’s not perfect, and it doesn’t have a Platinum trophy, it’s still a ver fun release you can enjoy either at home on your PS4 or on the go on your PS Vita.

It’s frantic and it’s really tense at times when you get swarms coming from all angles or trying to fight off a boss, but it’s never impossible
