Neon FM is a music game where players tap 3-5 lanes of notes to the beat of licensed electronic dance music from popular and indie artists while impressive visual effects swirl and flash in the background to simulate a music festival experience. The arcade version was first self-published in the USA by Unit-e Technologies in 2013, and then revised and re-released in Asia by Andamiro (a famous South Korean company responsible for the “Pump It Up” series) in 2017 with exclusive tracks. The mobile version was released in April of 2017 by Unit-e Global.
The game is recognized by 3 core factors:
- The soundtrack, which features labels such as the popular “Monstercat,” and independent artists such as Carpenter Brut (of “Hotline Miami 2” fame) and Freezepop (seen in many Harmonix games).
- Online, synchronous, cross-platform multiplayer matches
- Impressive graphics and effects synced to the rhythm of tracks
The game originated in 2005 as a dance game similar to “Dance Dance Revolution” and “Pump It Up,” but was shelved due to issues with patents and the arcade publisher for the title. The game was resurrected in 2013 (with the same lead designer) as a hand-based game, and underwent many improvements with player and partner feedback. The game was then brought to mobile in 2017 after spending over a year in beta.
The game has since received international acclaim, especially in the United States, Japan, and Mexico. The arcade version is available in many countries, including the USA, South Korea, Thailand, Philippines, China, Indonesia, United Arab Emirates, and more (see the current list of arcades we know about here).
The game retails for $7,995 for arcade and is available free with in-app purchases for mobile.
The best! Must get!!! ★★★★★
This game is the best for those electronic music loving junkies. This game really inspires you to listen to the music and to try and hit every key as precise as possible. Overall a very outstanding game and I can’t wait to see how they impress me even more. 5 stars and 2 thumbs up for this game!!!!
One of the best rhythm games out there for a phone. really gives me the vibe of DDR with its song selection.
Perfect Android version of original arcade version, also has good songs, fascinating visual effects, even online matching with arcade player! PERFECT.
This is the best mobile rhythm game I’ve ever played!!! The harder difficulty settings offer a really good challenge! The fact that this is an actual arcade game makes me want to create an account!!! I knew someday i would find an outstanding rhythm game just by browsing the App Store! I will definitely recommend this game to anyone that likes rhythm games! Also, I will definitely be sharing this with all my friends at school!!!
