What I liked:
- There are three difficulty choices in each of the modes which means in a way you can fit the challenging aspects of the game around you.
- The minamilist approach they’ve gone with when it comes to both the visuals and sound design has been done well and it also fits in with the gameplay as well.
- I was very impressed with how they’ve combined two different genre’s and when in full flow both these different genre’s combine together well.
- Each of the levels in the game have a decent amount of variety present in them which in turn keeps things fresh and interesting for longer.
What I didn’t like:
- The game can at times be a little frustrating so I recommend that you play the game in short bursts.
- Whilst there is a decent amount of variety present when it comes to the levels there isn’t a huge amount of depth present in the gameplay.
- If you lose all of your lives then you have to restart all over again which may be off-putting for some.
Does NeuroBloxs do enough to get a recommendation from me?
All in all NeuroBloxs is one of them rare games that meshes two separate genre’s together and if a game does that well then you end up finding that you enjoy it much more. Thankfully NeuroBloxs has done that well and even though it has a few underlying issues it does on the whole get quite a bit right. One of the best things it gets right is that it caters to a number of different skill levels thanks to the multiple options you get when it comes to difficulty. This is a very important addition in my opinion because the game can get pretty frustrating and the different difficulties do combat this in a way. This then means you can enjoy what the game has to offer and it does have quite a bit for you to enjoy. There are multiple levels for you to tackle and with the added bonus of a survival mode you end up forgetting quite quickly about the lack of depth present in the gameplay. At the end of the day then I don’t mind admitting that NeuroBloxs surprised me because I didn’t think this little game would be as enjoyable as it was. This then means that this game gets a decent recommendation from me because it gets the important aspects spot on and it’s great for passing a bit of time every now and then.
I rate NeuroBloxs 7/10.
