Neon Abyss – How to Use Gems in Bar and Which Character to Choose

A guide on how to use gems in bar and which character to choose in Neon Abyss.

Neon Abyss

Combining furious run ‘n’ gun action and deep, roguelike mechanics, Neon Abyss pits you as a member of ‘Grim Squad’ – a task force set-up by Hades himself to infiltrate the Abyss and defeat the New Gods. Death is not the end as every time you die, you’ll find yourself more empowered than before.

As you progress through each dungeon, random item drops will be key in helping you infiltrate the Abyss and these passive effects can stack between every item. With no limit to how many can apply; a wide variety of combinations will make each run unique.

With each run, you will be able to unlock new rooms, items, bosses, special rules and even new endings! This means each dungeon is unique and expandable, being tailored to your own specific playstyle.

Hatch and Evolve Pets

If you need some company on your journey into the depths of the abyss, or just some additional firepower or assistance, eggs can be found which will turn into a random pet that has a special ability and will evolve the longer you survive.


Take a short break from slaying minions and take part in random mini-games that will also bag you some loot! Jump into Piano Performances, Meditation Challenge, Dance Competitions, and more – staying alive just got a lot more interesting!

Restart the game, and don’t touch the controller until you’re done with upgrades.

Which Character to Choose?

Some characters seem clearly better than others, and it just seems kind of odd. Starting with the first two characters, I really don’t see the use of Wade over Anna. You start with one extra grenade as Wade, but I fail to see how starting with a grenade could possibly be worth having a WHOLE extra life container. What exactly are you going to use that grenade on that would be worth as much as a WHOLE extra life container? Then you have the DLC character Saya, who seems almost straight up better than both Anna and Wade if it weren’t for the fact that RNG in the first level can grant you a treasure room with a key that you wouldn’t get as Saya. But chance are, Saya would most likely be more useful in your runs.
