So far the best game i played this year - be in mid was released in 2013 - since the begging was a blast!
Dust: An Elysian Tail, takes place in world call Falana, this is the place were we will take control of Dust, a character that on that moment doesn't know who he is or what he used to, along with two others friends, Figet his helper and Blade of Ahrah his main weapon - and our only one - they will fight against some monsters. Gameplay is presented on a 2D Side-Scrolling plus Hack and Slash, and despite being Hack and Slash with has a very few combos.
Dust big mission is to find out who is was and help citizens of Falana, and to start right on beginning he will receive the Blade of Ahrah, is a mysterious sword that will give him some advices and tell him a bit more about his pass.
Dust contains a lot of good elements, being one RPG, through the game we will gain some experience, that will makes us level up and automatically increase our stats. We still can do some side quest that are spread over Falana. While we are progressing on main story we will gain some powers - three to be exact - powers that both Figet and Ahrah will use together. This powers are projectiles that Fidget can throw and Arhah can create a "storm" with them, this powers are, fire, thunder and wind.
Since we are talking about Fidget, well he excellent character, a great humor sense and has a beautifully friendship with Dust, with n doubt the best character in whole game! The graphics are beautifully drawn and very colorful and full of life, as well the animations that are in. Same thing goes to the OST, very calm and fits on this type of game.
Personally was a great experience for me, great, i had lot of fun and i enjoyed the plot, kinda sad through end. I really hope for a sequel!
