Neon Abyss

Combining furious run ‘n’ gun action and deep, roguelike mechanics, Neon Abyss pits you as a member of ‘Grim Squad’ – a task force set-up by Hades himself to infiltrate the Abyss and defeat the New Gods. Death is not the end as every time you die, you’ll find yourself more empowered than before. As you progress through each dungeon, random item drops will be key in helping you infiltrate the Abyss and these passive effects can stack between every item. With no limit to how many can apply; a wide variety of combinations will make each run unique. With each run, you will be able to unlock new rooms, items, bosses, special rules and even new endings! This means each dungeon is unique and expandable, being tailored to your own specific playstyle. Hatch and Evolve Pets If you need some company on your journey into the depths of the abyss, or just some additional firepower or assistance, eggs can be found which will turn into a random pet that has a special ability and will evolve the longer you survive. Mini-Games Take a short break from slaying minions and take part in random mini-games that will also bag you some loot! Jump into Piano Performances, Meditation Challenge, Dance Competitions, and more – staying alive just got a lot more interesting!

It does what it set out to do, but for some reason I feel this game has no personality. The art is good and all, but nothing feels very unique. The game is also pretty slow paced. So, I do not think it is an amazing game, but I do think some people will enjoy it.
6.5/10

Review from Steam

It's definitely worth picking up and giving it a try. Very fun gameplay that scratches the Isaac/Gungeon itch. Has a unique aesthetic and great music. I'll be critical since the game has a lot of potential.

The biggest problem is that it loses steam quickly after getting the gem unlocks because there's no apparent incentive to beat bosses as the different characters.
Getting to the true final boss is frustrating and tedious.
Items rarely interact in a meaningful way and some feel useless most of the time like the numerous jump and guardian/angry sprites upgrades.
Guns often feel interchangeable and their active abilities aren't useful a lot of the time.
DLC gave it some life but again the lack of unlocks is glaring.
I'd rate it somewhere in 6 to 7 out of 10 range in its current state.

Review from Steam

Neon abyss = Binding of isaac+Enter the gungeon
Cons:
- Too grindy (Bar upgrades)
- Lacks enemy variety
- Too RNG-based
Pros:
- Great item and weapon variants
- Addictive roguelike gameplay (BOI vibe)
- Great bosses
- OP character build!

Review from Steam

This game is currently in the Humble Bundle for September 2021. If you are interested in the game and it's before October 4th, 2021, consider picking up the game as part of the current monthly bundle.
Our first rogue-lite of the night. Players are thrown into the abyss and have to fight their way out. The game just oozes style and feels like a Binding of Isaac design philosophy with a little Dead Cells platforming and deep weapon system, but every weapon is a gun.
The levels and gameplay are fantastic and working your way through levels and boss encounters are fun. Though a big piece of the game is the items you get and the synergies between them. There’s a decent amount of luck involved with the game as well, as my two deep runs had amazing item lists, and I struggled for about thirty minutes across four runs to get beyond the second level possible due to some bad luck, or possibly grinding permanent upgrades.
Still, this feels polished and well designed, even if a decent amount of that is just Binding of Isaac’s rules snuck in there. I have seen it’s not the longest rogue-lite, and with a heavy reliance on luck that might upset some rogue-lite players. There are three difficulty modes so new players can choose the right one for them.
Pick this up if you somehow aren’t overloaded with rogue-lites. I have over a hundred rogue-lites myself, and I can still somehow find myself playing this. It’s solid, but also I question if I need yet another rogue-lite.

Review from Steam

It feels a lot like Binding of Isaac as a platformer in a Cyberpunk wrapping (and thus much less feces and gore).

Review from Steam

To be honest, this feels like Dungreed with slightly better mechanics and much prettier graphics.
But where Dungreed failed, Neon Abyss fails harder. And that is the balance.
If you want to play a rougelite that is almost entirely based on luck, this is the game for you. You never have to feel bad for losing.
But if you want to progress not just by unlocking and picking new items but in the sense of getting better at the game as the player, this is not at all for you.
Still, I will go ahead and recommend it. Because while I can see that this game isn't right for me, it makes me wish that it was. Whether that means it being more balanced or me having a different taste is of no importance.
