Overall, Neon Chrome possesses such a level of quality to every gameplay element that comparisons can unbelievably be drawn to an enhanced Alien Breed and Crusader: No Remorse, therefore Neon Chrome is highly recommended and is now without doubt 10Tons’ best game, especially to fans of top-down shooters and 10Tons’ previous best game Crimsonland.

If you enjoy other rogue-likes or roguelites, there’s a very good chance you’ll enjoy Neon Chrome. Even if you tend to play a lot of twin-stick shooters but avoid anything with the word ‘rogue’ in the description, I highly recommend Neon Chrome. It has its problems, but otherwise comes across as a breath of fresh air in a saturated environment.

If you're up for a satisfying roguelike twin stick shooter then Neon Chrome fits the bill. It may not be the best one you've ever played but it's definitely a worthwhile sci-fi adventure that you'll gladly pick up and play from time to time.

Neon Chrome does a lot of things right, and I was impressed by the overall feel of the game which is both solid and visceral. The graphics hold up well in the isometric view and the bright and shiny visuals are certainly a pleasure to look at, while the tactical shooting and use of perks offers a different challenge each time you play. The trouble is that is is all marred by the agonisingly stubborn lack of checkpoints and forced restarts which, for me, definitely didn’t add to the experience. This aside, the fun you can have means it’s worth investing a little time to save Neon Chrome, especially if you’re a Dead Nation fan and if you can see past the issues I’ve mentioned, though the current £11.99 price tag may be a little steep.

All in all, I enjoyed my time with Neon Chrome. It delivers the basics of why I like twin-stick shooters and adds its own mark with an emphasis on strategy and a cool cyberpunk theme. Granted, the game has a few shortcomings such as a non-existent story and sub-par graphics, as well as being rather short and having no online co-op, but if you're looking for something easy to pick up and play (especially with a friend) you could definitely do a lot worse!

Mixing things up a little could have worked wonders, but as it is, playing Neon Chrome is an exercise in tedium occasionally broken up by the odd exciting moment. The progression system amounts to little more than slowly increasing numbers next to things like 'health' and 'damage', and contradictory design choices mean that despite options being made available to you, the best option is almost always the same one. Ultimately, Neon Chrome is a game that wants you to keep coming back for more, but one that offers few reasons to actually do so.
