Advent NEON is a solo-developed passion project meant to combine a ton of the inspirations I've had growing up into a single character and game.
With a focus on accessible, yet nuanced mechanics, speed, flash and tons of immediate power scaling, this game's meant to make anyone feel incredible as they tear through the opposition!
If you've enjoyed any of Sonic the Hedgehog, Megaman, Super Smash Bros, Celeste or even DragonBall, I highly recommend trying this game out!
(Configure keyboard or gamepad controls in the options menu!)
[Action]: [Keyboard input] -- [Gamepad input]
Move: WSAD/Arrows -- Left Stick/D-Pad
Jump: Space/C -- Bottom Face/Left Bumper

Gamepad Stick Deadzone can be set between 10% and 85% of the gate radius.
To ensure your gamepad controls are working, you can open a Visualizer for your inputs by going to Options -> Video -> Display Inputs. These show the realtime inputs from your controller regardless of what else is happening ingame.
Directional Attacks - Similar to platform fighters, you get an entire moveset of grounded and aerial moves that change with the held direction!
Attack Chaining/Canceling - Ever play Turbo Mode in Smash Bros? Basically, land an attack and you can cancel into whatever the heck else you want.
Directional Dashing - Ever play Celeste? Like its dash? Cool! You get two of them here, and you can use them to dodge attacks or travel in any cardinal direction, grounded or in the air. (Yes there's wavedashing for those who want it) Timing a dash with an enemy's attack lets you dodge it and freeze time!
Break Attacks - Strong attacks that use up one of your dash charges; use these to break through enemy armor and counter their attacks, stunning them.
Dodge/Counter - Dash at the right time to freeze time! During this time, attack to hit the enemy with a stronger Break Attack, without using a charge of your dash!
Nodes - The green spinning Doritos floating around. Collect 10 of them and recover a health point!
Resonance %- A scaling damage/speed buff that ranges from 0-100%. Hit enemies and collect Nodes to maintain this buff and absolutely snowball in power. The catch? This power goes down when you get hit or idle around. Get in there and smack stuff up (skillfully) and you'll be handsomely rewarded!
