'''Neon Abyss''' is a [[{{Roguelike}} roguelite]] [[ActionGame action]]-[[PlatformGame platformer]] developed by Veewo Games and published by Creator/Team17 that was released on July 14, 2020 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam. You play as a new initiate of the "Grim Squad," a task force created by Hades to slay the New Gods, a pantheon of deities that are pastiches of pop culture fads, such as mobile videos, fast food and cryptocurrency. Its art style is very ostensibly inspired by a mixture of 1980s synthwave and neo-futuristic landscapes, and much like {{VideoGame/Enter the Gungeon}}, {{VideoGame/Rogue Legacy}} and {{VideoGame/Hades}}, allows you to collect currency to modify future runs by unlocking playable characters, items, vendors and secret rooms.

!!Tropes found in Neon Abyss include:
* AnthropomorphicPersonification: The New Gods are based off modern obsessions, such as Tik and Tok being based off mobile games.video sharing apps.
* AntiFrustrationFeatures:
** In a similar vein to {{VideoGame/Enter the Gungeon}}, certain rooms have teleport stones that can be used to quickly traverse around the current level without having to backtrack through several rooms.
** As in {{VideoGame/The Binding of Isaac}}, the treasure room on the first floor will always be unlocked, to accommodate for characters who don't start out with extra keys.
** You automatically melee enemies with your knife if you're in close enough proximity to them without having to press a different button, preventing frustrations with aiming in close-quarters.
** While some guns still have a cooldown reloading period before they can be used in short succession, all guns have BottomlessMagazines, giving players more leeway for missing shots.
* AwesomeButImpractical: The Popcorn item turns all of your gun's bullets into explosive rounds. This can be devastating against most mooks and bosses and negates the need to use bombs on rock walls and containers, but unless you've picked up the Big Daddy item which gives you explosion immunity, you'll likely be caught in the blast radius of your shots fairly often, especially if you have familiars your bullets can hit on accident such as the Vibrant Ball.
* BottomlessMagazines: No guns require ammunition, meaning they can be spammed to your heart's content, although some guns have to reload, signified by a short cooldown bar.
