Neon Drive is a slick retro-futuristic obstacle-dodging game that will make your brain melt. You've been warned.
From beautiful cityscapes and ocean roads to exploding enemy spaceships, Neon Drive has it all. It's inspired by the arcade games of the ‘80s, but set against a futuristic backdrop of glowing cyber-grid, all in silky-smooth mirror-polished graphics.
QUICK FEATURES LIST:
UNIQUE GAMEPLAY TWISTS
Neon Drive will bring you 7 amazing levels, each featuring unique twists and perspective changes, keeping you on your toes (err, wheels) throughout the gameplay. You can take a look at some of these twists in the video. (Don’t be afraid of spoilers, this barely scratches the surface).
IT'S A MUSIC GAME
Each level of the game comes with a custom-made retro music track, perfectly tuned and in sync with the roadblocks and your enemies. This allows you to just hit the beat, unplug, and zen out. Watch the landscape seamlessly morph from one scene to the next, in a ballet of colors and shapes, and let your inner driver take the wheel.
NOT JUST A CRAPPY MOBILE PORT
Neon Drive is already available for iOS devices but that doesn’t mean we’ll just port it to PC/Mac/Linux as it is. We’re working on new levels and major graphical improvements for these platforms, to take full advantage of your gaming rig. There’s even more to expect: controller support, achievements, Steam trading cards, Steam cloud and NO microtransactions.
JUMPING, FLYING AND TRANSFORMING CARS
Neon Drive cars can jump, hover, fly into the outer space or transform into a running robot. Tired of driving and dodging the obstacles? Just hold on until the half-level mark when something special is bound to happen!
3 DIFFICULTY MODES
There are three difficulty modes: normal, hard and insane that will test your skills to the limit. Even if you manage to complete everything, there’s an endurance mode in the works for those who want to climb the leaderboard even higher.

"Just look how gorgeous it is! Yes it is another lane-dodger, but it's so polished you can hang it on your bedroom wall and use it as a mirror" - Alysia Judge – editor at AppSpy.com
“This is all about appearances (much like the techno-capitalistic '80s) and it's a wonderful tribute to the cyber future we thought we'd be living in now some 30-odd years ago.” - Chris Priestman - www.pocketgamer.co.uk
“A Neon-Infused Synth-laden Tough-as-Nails Retro-Experience. Truly the graphics here are one of Neon Drive’s biggest highlights, perfectly recreating every last nuance of its nostalgic high-contrast world.” - Clovis L. Dye, Jr. - iFanzine
