NeonNeon50Neon is a new adaptation of Asteroids, developed by the British Ben and Ali of VarStudios, and is their best game released on the web so far.

If Hot Rocks is almost a clone of the original, Neon differs by a lot of new additions. First of all, controls are with the mouse instead of the keyboard. Move your spaceship with your mouse and press the left button to fire. Six different types of enemies are implemented in Neon, each one with its own abilities. And yes, you will have to destroy a lot of asteroids, known here as “Winders”, which are probably floating in space to remind us the original game. 9 power-ups are also available throughout the different levels (I should say “waves”), from the classic extra-life to the powerful radial blast (use it wisely).

I didn’t find anything to complain about in this game, but some players might find the controls with the mouse tricky to use. That being said, it’s a part of the gameplay and with a bit of practice, you should get used to it.

Overall Neon is a superb interpretation of a classic game. Graphics are simple but really original and the soundtrack fits perfectly to the intense pace of the game. Animations are almost perfect, with no lag and fast reactions. This game is so addictive that I definitely wouldn’t recommend it for a 10 minute break at work. You’ve been forewarned!

Have fun!
