Nano Assault Neo Review

Nano Assault Neo is a twin stick shoot em up made by video game developer Shin en Multimedia and released for Wii eShop and Wii U, and now for PS4. It’s the sequel to the 3DS title Nano Assault.

Nano Assault Neo is fairly typical shoot em up affair, but it takes an interesting theme. You go up again the Nanstray virus, which is threatening to eliminate humanity. To do that you pilot a capsule through body cells that are attacking the body. The game features 4 clusters each with 4 levels. You play progressively, unlocking one level at a time. There are tokens to collect that allow for upgrades like weapons and shields, and there are also online leaderboards, and  a local multiplayer.

Nano Assault Neo is a solid shoot em up that is a little light on content but which features excellent graphics and presentation. If there’s one criticism it has to be that it’s too familiar to other games. It copies a lot, but it also polishes and perfects.
