Incredible graphics, easy and fun loot system, intriguing story
Controls are a little cumbersome
Twin-stick shooter fans rejoice, there is finally a game you can sink your teeth into. Neon Chrome for Android is an action game that combines elements from roguelikes and dual-stick shooters to create a really unique experience - especially one on mobile platforms. This game is a mobile port of a PC and console game, but it's one that thought and care went into, so don't write it off just yet.
Neon Chrome is a game that manages to tie expectations of casual fans and hardcore fans together in a package that caters to both crowds - a pretty tough feat if you ask us. The game has a pretty interesting premise. The main character is a hacker that takes over things called "assets." You will play as the assets, which are basically like the game's classes. Each has a unique weapon, stats and skills they'll use in the actual gameplay.
Speaking of gameplay, this one plays out a lot like most twin-stick shooters. Your left stick will move your character while your right stick will shoot. You have to push the right stick in a direction to actually shoot. You have ability and use buttons, too. As you play through the game, you'll earn currency to purchase things with and pick up loot to make yourself more powerful.
The game's $6.99 price tag may turn off a lot of players, but this is half the price of its PC counterpart. Plus, given how the game plays out, you can get a ton of replayability out of one package. So as long as you're a fan of the gameplay, and your phone can run it, this is a game that will provide you with tens of hours of gameplay, if not more.
