JUST WHAT ARE THE CRITICS SAYING ABOUT NEONSCAPE?

Overall, anyone that is a fan of puzzle games, strategy games, or actions games should definitely give Neonscape a look.

The App Reviewer

Harks back to the commodore 64 and atari era where games were simple, fun to play and highly addictive.

"burt backarack", AU App Store Reviewer

This is a pretty fun pick up and play game, it has good gameplay, and is pretty simple. The graphics are very polished, and make it that much more enjoyable.

"LittleFrenchNibblet", US App Store Reviewer

The game is well executed and you can make it more challenging for yourself by adjusting the speed. Since it has recalibration of the tilt sensor and local and global highscores, two popular features are included.

4/5 stars

Great retro game!

:
This is a fun game with a retro look that reminds me a lot of Mazes of Tron (the old Intellivision game) except that you can move bits of the "city" around...

Tilt controls work great, gameplay is streightforward and smooth. Being able to start the game at faster speeds is great, and there is lots of replay value due to the randomness of the game layout.

I'd give the game 5 stars except for the following:

1) It's a bit overpriced at $4. I see some comments about $1.99, which I would have immediately went for if I had played the demo first (bought it instead of getting the trial version by mistake, luckily it was a happy mistake!)

2) The game really should have some sort of music, especially at this price. Some light techno or trance would do the trick.

3) The "ball" (players ship?) sticks out like a sore thumb against the beautiful Neon themed walls, 8-bit themed enemies, and piece translation effects. I'd love to see it appear as a neon yellow circle, maybe even leaving a bit of a trail. Or maybe even yellow/green like the circle in the game's icon. Or the blue translucent marble from Marble Madness...

Side note: I also think it would be fun if the arrows (perhaps a double-arrow ">>") would cause the game to scroll sideways for a while, perhaps at a slower speed, and/or up/down arrows to reverse/change the speed to mix things up a bit.
