    Neonwall is a fresh new take on the old physics puzzler genre, immensely enjoyable thanks to the Joy-Cons IR tracking control mode. A beautiful package of endless neon glows and electronic music filled with some stiff concentration and reflex challenges makes it very easy for us to recommend this unusual yet deeply satisfying addition to Nintendo Switch's digital library.

    Despite its simplicity, Neonwall can be addictive, as long as you get used to its mechanics. It will require skill, speed and precision, but, above all, lots and lots of patience if we want to complete all the levels, thing that won’t be easy at all.

    Neonwall is a frustratingly mediocre title that could have been so much more. Sluggish controls and uninspired execution fail to live up to the game's intriguing premise.

    Beneath the hue of its pulsating neon glow, Neonwall constructs itself around an interesting concept but struggles to find a way to make it as engaging as it needs to be. It will boggle your mind in ways unlike any other Nintendo eShop release, but lacks the staying power to maintain your attention for long beyond completion.

    If they decided to address the some of the issues like calibration and the music, it would really help, but the main issue with the Joy-Con significantly hinder the experience. I do hope they fix these issues as it has a lot of potential to be a better game, but in the meantime, best to just turn the lights off on this game.

I was attracted by its retro aesthetic and its original gameplay. It takes time to begin to demonstrate its potential, from level 10 it becomes a great challenge. Its difficulty catches you without remedy.

    Purchase recommended for Nintendo Switch.

    Neonwall does exactly what it says: there neons and walls, not much more tbh. The game is an interesting mix between puzzle and rhytm games.Neonwall does exactly what it says: there neons and walls, not much more tbh. The game is an interesting mix between puzzle and rhytm games.
    Graphic and audio tracks are the reason why I didn't gave a score over 6, this game is all about its gameplay. The price is on par with what it offers, still you might wanna watch a couple of gameplays before to buy it.
