- Need to switch between colour triggers adds challenge and excitement.
- Excellent soundtrack and presentation.
- Extremely compulsive.

Playing Neurokult is a stressful experience. Not stressful in a bad, 'the kids need new shoes and I spent my last paycheck fixing that leaky pipe in the water closet' way. The good kind of the stressful, where you're trying to keep 20 neon plates spinning as you dash barefooted between them on a moving electrified conveyor belt.
Behind its computer chip aesthetic and hacker terminology, Neurokult is colour-matching puzzler. Each level presents you with a wall of coloured discs travelling from left to right. You have to try and keep the screen clear by choosing a colour from the palette on the left, and tapping the corresponding discs, thereby deleting them.
If you want to start racking up the high scores, you'll want to drag your finger through several like-coloured discs at a time, deleting them all in one go. To make things more challenging, bombs also glide onto the field of play. Tap or swipe one of these and your colour-matching days are over.
It's the need to constantly use the palette to switch between colours before swiping which makes Neurokult more challenging than some of its peers. As you are forced to switch shade so quickly and so frequently, it can easy to forget which colour you have selected, and find yourself wearing away your health bar by targeting the wrong discs.
Surviving long enough to beat the clock and finish each level requires a ninja reflexes and brow-furrowing levels of concentration. Once you've beaten the levels and bested the bosses (which, like bombs, must be avoided), you can attack them again to complete a series of micro-challenges.
Though initially daunting, Neurokult quickly sucks you in its compulsive loop of tapping, switching, and swiping. It's not all smooth sailing - you'll be zapping discs with monk-like serenity one minute, and pawing impotently at your tear-streaked iPhone the next. However, if you've got the stones, then Neurokult will get your neurones fizzing like a mentos-powered soda rocket.
