Neon Abyss first impressions
So what type of game is neon abyss its a roguelike action platformer you run and gun your way through into abyss as part of the hades formed Grim squad.
Featuring unlimited item synergies and a unique dungeon evolution system, each run diversifies the experience and makes it so every choice alters the ruleset.
As you explore the underworld and face the modern gods of Neon Abyss you will craft your own upgrade path but also change multiple aspects of the game’s experience including bosses, rulesets, items, and even access new endings.
here’s a peek of the launch trailer
Now I will admit I am very new to the genre in fact it’s my first ever roguelike game I have played so I was going in blind so to speak.
you start out with a very basic gun but there are loads of chances to get a better set as you progress through this game, some of the unique randomly generated rooms will provide quirky new guns!
New guns can be located in locked away rooms that can be unlocked using the currency or by using glittering crystals which are randomly placed about throughout each level.
The soundtrack for neon abyss is very enjoyable & certainly fits this fun and quirky roguelike game, it keeps me wanting to come back for more!
There’s a big variation of enemies and bosses to endure, which come with comic-style retro graphics. Boss fights are very quick and not long & drawn out, very enjoyable.
You can collect eggs during runs that potentially hatch into handy little friends as you progress through the rooms which I find fun.
Expect to die a lot I learned this fast despite playing it on the easy mode but I am new to the genre but as I have found the more I progress through the game I grow stronger and stronger, which I love.
I personally really enjoyed this it’s not my normal genre it was great to give ago.
I would strongly recommend you try this game its worth a go but if you happen to have Xbox game pass its currently on that service if you would like a taster!
