Had a lot of problems playing Neon Blight from performance issues to the big main issue, the controls! For a twin-stick shooter, it really isn’t fast smooth, or even responsive, guns have a way of being disappointing and not fun to use. The gun shop idea is neat but in truth, it’s very mixed and games like Moon lighter do a much better job at fleshing it all out. The look is nice going for a pixel art Cyberpunk type deal but honestly, that’s where it all stops. I just never had fun with it and even putting up with it didn’t help the case. Games have come on so far so having a twin-stick shooter that plays this badly is a strange thing. Anyway, I don’t want to nitpick it to death, Neon Blight is blighted with issues and is just not fun to play.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
