Battling The Bright Lights In Neon Tango
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

Mac|Life recently 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. Mac|Life gave Neon Tango a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

With Neon Tango, Freeverse conjures up the spirit of classic, vector-line arcade games. This unabashedly retro shooter features typical, blast-anything-that-moves gameplay that would normally cost you an afternoon pumping quarters into a cabinet. And even though Neon Tango never feels completely original, its high standards make for some fun shooting.

Your tiny, triangular ship is stuck moving forward, but you can use keyboard controls to turn, speed up, and strafe sideways. These choices are surprisingly effective, and we piloted our ship through 50 unique levels, hiding behind walls and peeking out around corners. And in the game’s most interesting touch, we banked shots off walls around those turns. Otherwise, we held the spacebar to keep shooting, but different enemies and varying level designs make the game less repetitious. An always-ready super-shot can be charged up every few seconds, and individual power-ups can be gathered and used. All the weapons feel great, shattering neon enemies on impact.
