Game Guides

ByKim Snaith

The joy of Neon Abyss, a new Rogue-like platformer from Team17 and Veewo Games, is in its vast amount of items and pick-ups.

As you play through the game’s ever-changing dungeons, you’ll amass an arsenal of power-ups based on the things you pick up. There are literally hundreds in the game. You may well never see the same pick up twice (or maybe you’ll keep getting the same ones). That’s Neon Abyss for you; it’s random.

Below you’ll find a list of all the items we’ve come across so far inNeon Abyss. Here you’ll find every item’s name along with what it does. It’s by no means exhaustive, but we think we’ve got a lotof them. As we keep playing and coming across new items, we’ll update the list below.
