Neon Wars

Wild Wednesday: More Neon than the Las Vegas Strip

For Wednesday this week I thought I'd take a look at a game that is a bit on the wild side. Neon Wars is a game that has a lot in common with the popular Xbox Live Arcade game Geometry Wars. Both feature simple graphics that feature lots of cool explosions that look more like fireworks than they do like a typical game's explosion.
The big difference between the two games comes in the way that they are played. While Geometry Wars does provide a fun short diversion, Neon Wars is in for the long haul. In 3-5 minutes your game of Geometry Wars is over, whereas after 20 minutes, your game of Neon Wars is really just beginning. The game gets better as it goes with more exciting power-ups and a sense of connection to the game play that will put you in a Zen state. For something interesting and different it is definitely worth a look.
