Description: BlitWise Production's newest game, Neon Wars, is an arcade style game where vivid, colorful graphics, great music, and exciting, fast paced game play come together in an amazingly new experience for the next generation of players that stays true to its classic, retro roots. This easy to learn abstract shooter has you collecting stars to power up your weapon, while dodging enemies who increase in speed and endurance with every minute! Access to powerful special weapons helps even the odds with intense pyrotechnic special effects. You are in complete control with your mouse, giving you smooth, seamless game play and a unique gaming experience. Your weapon fires automatically, with no need to aim, firing in the direction of the closest enemy. As you collect more stars, the rate of fire, power, and even type of bullet upgrade, helping you keep pace with the relentlessly evolving enemy. Five levels of difficulty allow enjoyable gaming for all ages, interests, and experience levels. The enemies are harder and faster on the higher difficulties, and it takes more power up stars to level up your weapon, but you also gain access to the most powerful, fastest firing weapon only on the higher difficulty levels. This game is sure to keep you and your friends competing to get the highest score! Neon wars captures the simple yet addictive game play you expect from BlitWise, and unites it to the fast paced action of the popular arena shooter genre. Features fun, upbeat music from Eliran Ben-Ishai DNA-Groove.
