Advent NEON is a fast-paced hyperactive 2D action platformer that is inspired by classic titles, like Sonic.

Punch robot cops while double-dashing and combo-ing them at lightspeed. When do you think they've got the drop on you? Dash through them to freeze time, run circles around them, and wind up a satisfying counterattack!

Once you hit 100% of your power, transform and show everyone how unstoppable you truly are.AdventNEON's got a focus on vibrancy, responsiveness, and freedom. You have got simple, tight (and remappable) inputs, fluid and versatile movement options, and extremely fast combat to allow you to jump around and beat down as you want. My goal is for the game itself to be so fun that you would be willing to open it up and have fun any time you want.

It takes a ton of inspiration from all the games and characters I enjoyed growing up, so you might notice some of that here.

You're put into the shoes of Neon, a special android with the ability to harness Resonance energy and rapidly scale in power. The harder the beatdown Neon dishes out, the stronger they become, until they are a nigh-unstoppable snowball of devastation. The catch? Neon can't maintain this power when getting hit, nor can they take a lot of hits in general. Neon is incredibly fast and powerful, but can only maintain that extreme potential when they're avoiding damage and continuously dishing it out.

If you can fully maintain the flow of Resonance though, you will transform, and be able to let loose 100% of your power! Become faster, stronger, brighter, meaner, and greener as everything in your path struggles to keep pace with you in this form.

Like Celeste? You can use its dash twice. Go nuts. Avoid everything. Counterattack through your enemies. Hack, and wavedash jump cancel™ if you want.

Enjoy platform fighters? Neon's got a fully fleshed-out directional move set, along with the ability to send enemies offscreen to KO them with a satisfying explosion.

Combat lets you cancel virtually everything into everything else. Make your own combos. Hit, stun, and run. Start up that combo with a dash. Unleash a barrage of punches and stop time like it's a [redacted] reference. Take out enemies with repeated dashes. Teleport behind the enemy and end them with a powerful Break attack!

You don't need to remember any optimal combo routes or buttons; just hit and don't get hit and you will win regardless of your playstyle!
