Neon Tango Reviewed

Applelinks has posted a new review of Freeverse's Neon Tango. The game is an action shooter which gives players a chance to pilot a cybership against the forces of chaos in 50 stages of enemy blasting action. Applelinks gave Neon Tango a score of 4 out of 5.
From the review:
The wild visuals and confined environments aside, the game plays and feels just like Wingnuts 2 (it's based on the same core technology). If you've spent any time at all in that game, you'll recognize the similarities in how your ship flies, how it feels to collide with other ships, how you approach boss battles, etc. Yet, this isn't a simple rehash under a new skin. The strategies are completely different, focusing instead on the use of power-ups, your method of attacking the numerous enemies, and on using the environment to your advantage. For instance, some walls can only be penetrated from one side, while your lasers can pass through. On others, the lasers ricochet. Hiding behind the walls can be beneficial...for a while, anyway. In games such as this, it's never a good idea to stay in one area for long. Similarly, I was having trouble with a particular boss until I began warping in and out of nearby wormholes to take a quick shot or two then duck back in before the boss could turn on me and unleash its attacks.For the rest of the review follow the link below.
Applelinks: Neon Tango Review
As with nearly all games of this type, destroying certain enemies will release power-ups that you can collect and use against the stronger enemies or those that come in high numbers. Knowing when and how to use the power-ups is essential for victory, especially against the bosses. I also heavily recommend the use of a gamepad. You can play with the keyboard, of course, but it'll be difficult to get the precise control you need to get deep into the game. Although the initial set-up was a bit jumbled with my Logitech RumblePad, Neon Tango was much more fun once I got off the keyboard.
