The future is neon in this ’80s-inspired arcade game, where you’ll have to turbocharge your driving technique to manoeuvre a supercar in a race to the finish line. Staying on course, however, is no easy feat as you dodge an onslaught of obstacles.

Neon Drive is a world of futuristic cityscapes, ocean roads, and illuminated street grids, all set to the beat of an atmospheric synthpop soundtrack that dials up the intensity speedometer.

Skillfully manoeuvre your car to the finish line, but always be prepared for what’s ahead.

We love how much this game feels like an ode to the heyday of retro arcades and their straightforward gameplay. Remember when you were tasked with racing while steering clear of oncoming vehicles, or controlling spaceships and launching missiles to avert falling asteroids? Neon Drive relives those experiences while sticking to the formula of simple control mechanisms: All you need to do is move your car left or right.

The game has eight challenging levels and it’s up to you to take the wheel, rev up your reaction times, and find the route to a win. As one scene morphs into the next, along with synth sound effects that keep pace with the evolving storyline, you’ll find yourself in a focused, almost mesmerizing rhythm.

Fresh challenges arrive as you advance to new levels. There are even shooting sequences where you need to destroy asteroids from a spaceship.
