I wanna be the Neon (by @thenadertwo) is not only a fantastic needle game, but it also has a fantastic Title Screen! @thenadertwo did a really good job making the Title Screen for I wanna be the Neon (by @thenadertwo).

The logo (For I wanna be the Neon which is by @thenadertwo) is comprised of big green (@thenadertwo's favorite color)line text that spell out the title of the game, I wanna be the Neon (by @thenadertwo). The Text that spells out I wanna be the Neon (by @thenadertwo)is a bit blurry, but i do believe @thenadertwo was trying to imitate looking straight into Neon Lights. (The Chemical, not the video game "I wanna be the Neon" by @thenadertwo)

Around the edge of Neon's title screen (which was drawn by @thenadertwo), is a bright blue line with orange blocks in the corners. I believe that the orange blocks being in the corners symbolize @thenadertwo's opinion on corner jumps (which @thenadertwo luckily doesn't use unless you are dotkid) that being you should use them with caution, as while they can be used well, most of the time they are used in a way to make jumps harder without making it any more interesting (which can be seen in I wanna Kill the Kamilia 3 by not @thenadertwo)

Title Screen Rating: @thenadertwo/10
-a true artistic masterpiece by @thenadertwo

One of Nader's first games in his well known Neon series, Neon has a bunch of interesting and fun jumps with its aesthetically pleasing style and smooth save-flow. I played this after playing all of his other games, and I thought it was interesting to see how his style has improved and developed over the years. My favourite parts of the game were the dotkid sections, which felt fun to play, and very few jumps caused me any bother apart from a couple of moving-platform related saves.

A solid needle game, and the foundation for what became Nader's signature needle style in future. Would recommend.

Cool needle game. However, the difficulty feels somewhat off, as the dotkid screens are way harder than the normal ones. That aside, I really liked most of the gimmicks (Exception for the speed+ one). Floating with the gravity was fun, and I always liked playing around with the Dotkid. Music is great, as well. It's a great game overall. Would recommend.
