How to Change Difficulty in Neon Abyss

Finding Neon Abyss‘ dungeon too hard or too easy? Luckily, you can change the difficulty of the game, and here’s how.

By default, when you start playing Neon Abyss the difficulty will be set to normal. It gives a fair challenge; enemies take a number of bullets to kill and they dole out a manageable amount of damage. But if you want to make the game easier or harder, you can – and it’s easy to do.

You can’t change the difficulty while in a dungeon; you can only do so from the bar-style hub that you visit between levels. To the left-hand side of the screen, just beyond the bar, you’ll find a neon sign next to an out-of-order elevator. Interact with this to toggle it between the three difficulty options: Easy, Normal and Hard.

What difficulty you choose is entirely up to you. Thankfully, there are no penalties for playing on an easier difficulty – and even on ‘Easy’, Neon Abyss can pose a challenge. We’d recommend only switching to ‘Hard’ when you’re very familiar with the game’s enemies and mechanics, as it’s not for the faint-hearted.
