Albany--A new game is helping teens in Albany to get up, get out, and get active.

The Neos is said to be a game for the entire body.

Gamers run back and forth between the four towers trying to tag the flashing lights as fast as possible.

Teens who headed out to the Teen Zone on Saturday already had a chance to check it out for the first time at Henderson Gym.

Albany Parks and Recreation received about $27,000 dollars a piece for two of the games.

"Neos is and integrated play system, it's all electronic, it flashes it beeps it gets kids up and moving and it's fun at the same time," said Suzanne Davis, Director Albany Parks & Recreation.

The new games are moveable.

This August, one will be relocated to the Bill Miller Gym and the other will go to the Carver Teen Center.
