Neon Junctions Review
Neon Junctions is a new puzzle game from Ratalaika games, I’ve reviewed a few games released by them over the last few months and a common theme seems to be that you can get a pretty good Gamerscore return on your money and this one continues the trend.
Neon Junctions is a 3D puzzle where you will move boxes from a first person perspective to make electrical connections on circuits around the levels to join the power source to the target and open up the link to the next level.
The puzzles can sometimes be a little foxing but they are never real brain stretchers, you just have to look at the level and what you have at your disposal, if there aren’t enough boxes to make the connections then invariably you can find some more hidden, sometimes you will need to use the boxes to access other areas in the level to find them but you can generally always get there.
As I mentioned earlier you will soon start racking up the Gamerscore as you progress through the levels, I managed to gain 400 points within the first seven levels and that only took about 10 minutes.
Graphically there isn’t a lot to the game but the art style is very well suited to the puzzles and also lives up to the neon in the title as it is very bright and gives the impression of electrical light.
In terms of value for money even at the low price of £4.49 there isn’t a huge amount to keep you busy for very long, there is also nothing that will make you come back for more, the main draw here will be Gamerscore hunters looking for a quick 1000 gamerscore.
I enjoyed the short time I had with the game but realistically there is nothing here to keep people interested.
With thanks to Ratalaika Games for the review code.
