Description: Save the Earth, burn the Sun. To pay off your life debts you’ve been uploaded to one of the millions of nano-workbots in the Sun’s core to prevent solar flares by breaking down neon isotopes. You control an ion cannon in a 360º gravitationally affected environment, firing positive and negative ions using left & right triggers at incoming neon isotopes of varying ‘charge’ to eliminate them.
Review: Once upon a time Galactic NEON was a kaleidoscopic neon-coloured game very much like a colourful version of Asteroids. Now, a few years later it is a VR game and it is still the same retro style and kaleidoscopic neon-coloured gameplay. While it might be colourful and a little bit nostalgic it didn’t really work for me and I soon found myself getting very bored with it. Also, for some reason, it was extremely nauseating (and not in a good way). Unless this becomes free or less than a quid I would stay clear of it as it simply isn’t worth anywhere near the current £6.99 asking price.
