Neon Space 2 is a highly anticipated sequel to Neon Space. The game kept all the elements from his predecessor, but at the same time the visuals received a mayor improvement. Goal of the game remains the same, you still have to guide your ship through numerous checkpoints to finish the level, while dodging obstacles, timing your abilities, solving puzzles to advance through the game, while trying to beat your previous high-score to obtain the gold medal. You have 2 abilities on your disposal, both cool down based.
**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.
Enjoy the uplifting music, breath taking visuals, solve puzzles, don't be afraid to fail, the game might be a bit tricky towards the end, but everyone can master it, and become the NEON KING.
Reviews about the game
Oh god why do I keep buying these games. Here's the basic premise of Neon Space 2 - fly a spaceship through a bunch of narrow and twisty paths, and avoid the many death traps that lie in wait in the process. As a premise, that's fine - but after only a few minutes getting used to the controls, you can already see the whole game falling apart around you. They're just not precise - tapping a button can send your ship forward a tiny jolt or a massive lurch purely based on the mood the game is in, and turning feels floaty, surreal and just plain not fun at all. Then you realise the collision detection is similarly awful - your ship can explode randomly while being a notable distance away from any nearby obstacle whatsoever, and it's impossible to distinguish the point where you should actually be staying away from anything that could create a critical existence failure. Difficulty is schizophrenic to the extreme as well. One early level is full of fast moving laser grids, requiring precise navigation and timing up until the very end. Another level just a bit later on is... A basic maze with no obstacles whatsoever. It's perplexing to observe, but no matter what a level contains, there's never really a sense of satisfaction that comes from beating any of them. It's more of a grim muttering of "finally..." and a slow sense of dread about what's coming next. Good points? Well, your ship's two abilities (Blink, which teleports you forward and through some obstacles, and slow time, which... Slows time) can occasionally be fun. Use them well while not being screwed over by the other game mechanics, and for a brief moment you feel like you're in control of the Matrix. The music's good as well - a quick glimpse of the credits shows it's all creative commons stuff, but there’s a nice mix of stuff which is nice to listen to and follows a good sci-fi theme, so fair play there. Still, though, Neon Space 2 just... Isn't fun. There are tons of games like this, which do everything slightly better at the very least. Half of them are free online. Go and play them instead.
Ok this is a pretty fun game, the controls are not very friendly though. The music is amazing, however I tried to find some of the music from their list and that list is all sorts of unorganized. There are songs under the wrong author, there is no way to sample the songs or set your own playlist either. Also the controls for the mouse are pretty terrible as the cursor will vanish if you aren't using it. Finally the music stops every time you die, any time you are paused, and in between levels. If they fixed these issues with an immediate respawn or continuous music this game would easily be worth 5 times what it is now. I reccomend this game if you can get past those small issues because the music is pretty amazing and it is a fun little time consumer. Also just a side note all of the music was taken from Creative Commons, a list of songs for anyone to access to edit. If anyone cared that is also a thing...
Holy shit, they managed to make it even worse. Almost every wall is deadly now. Physics is even buggier (and I thought that was impossible). Rotating in place (near a wall) can kill you. I know it's subjective, but even the music is worse, indistinct ★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
If you are looking for a game to train your patience, than yes. If you want to score some easy achievements, than not so much. It took me three hours to plati (100%). Most levels are very easy, but those few #@$$% levels ruin it for the rest of the game... It's more or less the same game as Neon Prism, only here you get to use the mouse which makes it easier for some parts, but definitely not for everything. Oow btw i got a -90% coupon for this game, still probably paid too much :P!
Pros: sound track, level design Cons: control This game is fun while it last with the neon colors and in game abilities, however when the player is given a terrible, non negotiable controls then the enjoyment of the game drops drastically.
Neon Space 1 was better, every time you try to blink past a wall you just die because the hitbox is bigger then the actual player
