For day 17 of the RPS Advent Calendar this year, you’re feeling the need – the need for speed. There’s a beautiful load ...
...of levels to leap through out there, and if you can take out all the enemies in your way then so much the better.
Neon White is a speedrunning FPS set across vaporwave Heaven, where a gang of anime idiot criminals have been raised to defeat demons.
Playing as an embarrassing anime idiot, we’re trying to climb the leaderboards of Heaven’s demon-killers by dashing and ...
...shooting through levels as fast as we can. All you have to do is reach the end and kill all demons along the way.
Neon White’s levels present obvious routes to take. The point that Neon White becomes Neon White is when you push into the ace tier and beyond.
To score the ace medal, you must not only nail your performance, you must break from the obvious route by finding a new use for a movement ability or questioning the perceived bounds of the level.
Skips, tricks, and lightning-fast aiming will get you there. It is a wonderful feeling to nail a run and set a new best time, yet the feeling that I could do one section just a bit better never goes away.
I know some find this rude ‘tude off-putting but I’m quite fond of these idiots and here for their daft plans. Logging ...
...back into Neon White now, I see our Ollie has beat some of my leaderboard times by as little as 4 milliseconds.
Alright, I must now go try to reclaim these positions. Liam: I’ve only played a few hours of Neon White (and enjoyed it a ...
...lot!) Composed by Machine Girl, these high-intensity beats are a solid pairing for doing boring tasks around the house.
Honestly, try hoovering while pumping Glass Ocean into your skull.
