¿Por dónde empezar? Dust ha sido otra sopresa indie mas. Y llevo unas cuántas este año. Dust es de los juegos que o te enganchan desde el principio (y mucho) o lo dejas de lado. Por mi parte soy del primer grupo, por su historia, por su banda sonora, por lo divertido que es de jugar (no todos pueden alardear de eso). 12 horas para pasarme la trama principal (mas alguna secundaria) me ha dado suficiente para pasarmelo muy muy bien. Y eso es un halago.

La historia transcurre en un mundo de fantasía, de dos reinos enfrentados, con un protagonista que 'aparentemente' pierde todos sus recuerdos, y es guiado por una espada rúnica. La trama nos llevará por praderas, montañas, cuevas, hasta un volcán, todo para que nuestro protagonista descubra quién es y porqué está ahí. Un pequeño inciso, el jefe final del juego está muy mal trabajado, carisma nulo, no dice nada, pero no enturbia la sensación general de buena historia.

Una banda sonora magistral, mucha variedad y muy bien trabajada, es perfecta en todos los sentidos. Mención especial a la parte final.

Jugablemente es divertido, mucho, viciante es la palabra. Juego en 2D tipo scroll lateral que sigue funcionando genial hoy dia. Controles sencillos, muy vistoso, un ataque principal, uno de area, y ataque de nuestra seguidora Fidget. A la hora del plataformeo es un poco sensible en los saltos. Sistema de compra venta de materiales poco usado. Buen desarrollo de nivel. En general tiene lo necesario para ser divertido durante horas.

Gráficamente es bonito, preciosista, un estilo de dibujo parecido al ''furry'', parece un anime japonés. Muchos detallitos que gustan. El juego viene a 60fps, todo muy estable, sin mas pretensiones de que sea bonito y que tenga buen rendimiento. Ninguna queja. (salvo algún crasheo y bug, pero nada habitual)

Hacía tiempo que un juego no conseguía tenerme casi 7 horas seguidas jugando... Chapeau...

¿Por donde empesar? Simplemente perfecto, un apartado gráfico magnifico, un sistema de combate un tanto simple, pero que te obliga a estar muy atento a tu alrededor, una trama muy interesante llena de misterios sobre el protagonista, y las conmovedoras historias de los personajes secundarios, a los que tendremos que ayudar, el mejor juego indie que he jugado,

Before I start, I have to say something, if you're looking for some short review of this game, this is probably not the right place to search but I'd like to encourage you to read those "few" words I have in my mind for quite some time.

The game itself is a work of art, a masterpiece, practically made by one man who just wanted to show and share his story, it took him almost 4 years to make it real. It's not just a simple platform/slasher game with a pinch of RPG. This game gives you what AAA games don't, when you play it, it stays in your mind and your heart for a long time, you just can't stop thinking about main characters and their quest until you turn this game on again. Then, after 15-20 hours of playing which is a very long time for an indie game, the end comes leaving us with emptiness and one thought in mind... why it had to end so "quickly"?

But that's enough of my jabbering, lets talk about the structure of this game.

The playthrough gives you a lot of pleasure, both of fighting hundreds of enemies and of finding well-hidden secrets or collecting your "friends". You can reach some of them only before the final bossfight, which is a great opportunity to backtrack a little and find out what we missed during our journey. Exploring the world isn't something that the game force you to do so, you just want to do it yourself. Why? Because the environment is just marvelous.

A hand-made grafics and backgrounds are one of the biggest advantages of this production because it looks like a fairy tale that you can live in. You can explore it and admire such a fantastic and well-planned world. Every single location has its own charm and atmospfere without any unneccessary elements that could distruct us. Literally, every little piece of it is in the right place.

Of course this game has some flaws and bugs but it just doesn't matter when you're experiencing such a wonderful adventure.

And lets say something about it. You can't say a bad word about the main plot, if that was a movie, the author would definitely receive an oscar for it. The enjoyable mixture of both main and side quests gives you a wide range of every known and unknown feelings human ever had. I'd like to say it that way... from happines to sadness with sorrow and anger along the way in only 10 seconds.

Let me say something about soundtrack too. Maybe while beating opponents to death, it's hard to pay attention to music playing in the background but when we stop slaughtering everything around, it's nice to hold on for a second, watch the view and listen to those wonderful tracks. This music is magic and it fits perfectly but listening to it without playing Dust is as much pleasurable. Ideal for a quiet, alone night with a cup of tea...

And at the end... what about the fighting system? At the beginning you might think that simple sword-swinging combined with jumping isn't going to drag your interest for a long, even if it looks astonishing, but during the game we can find various of unique moves and techniques that can provide new ways of making incredible hit-combos up to 1000 hits!

There's much more I would like to say about this game but no amount of simple words can express the way I feel after playing this, for me prefect at any aspect, game. I hope my review will give you a proper answer to the question: "Is this game's worth playing?"

And one last thing, you may think that 15 euro for this game is a little to much and you may be right, you can just buy it in a bundle or wait for a discount but... this game is worth much more... 15 euro is nothing for such an experience like this that not many games can give you, really, honestly.

Thanks for your time and have fun, you'll have it, that's for sure.
(and sorry for possible mistakes in this text)

One of the best platformers you can get on PC and it's made by 1 person (if you don't count soud designers & Voice actors)

Right when you jump in, you'll have a hard time believing that only 1 person could create this game, and this feeling will last till the end of the game. It's beautiful hand-drawn world that you are going to fall in love with.
You are playing as Dust, which is a boy that can't quite remember who he is or how he ended up where he is right now, shortly his swords begins to talk to him, but it's not going to reveal much. And after that, you are going to meet your sidekick fidget. She can be a bit annoying but it's a cute character that's making the game more interesting. She is not there just for the heck of it, she is a guardian of the sword your hero weilds and she decides to follow you if you are not going to retur the sword and in fact, she proves to be useful on your jurney.

The combat is flawless, fluid and responsive. Even tho there's alot to do, you'll be right at home with the mechanics. you are not only going to be killing stuff with your sword, you are going to learn some magic too and that's where fidget is going to proof useful to you. She cast it, you make it better. It's as simple as that.

You are going to be picking up some loot and coins alog the way, it's a RPG game after all complete with vendors and some crafting. While you can't craft yourself, you are going to meet a blacksmith, that's going to craft you whatever she can, you'll just have to find the resources and pay a fee. In the end, the gear can change how you play and what bonuses your character is going to have. You are also leveling up and each level you get to choose what stat are you going to increase.

You get quests as well as side quests and each is unique in its own way. I'd suggest you to complete every single one, it's worth your time. You can also find challanging places in the wrold. You have to complete certain challanges in them (run through an area fast and destroy all targets).

The story is easy to follow and yet it's great. You may think that you know who your character is after a while, but in the end it's all quite different and surprising. Each character have its own individuality, which makes it even better.

The music is one of the most important aspects of any game for me and here it's outstanding. I love the soundtrack, it's memorable and is making the game even better! I guarantee you are not going to be disapointed.

I 100% the game and I would play it again, any time! It's full of nice references from other games that don't get in the way. It's working great with both a controller (it's ported from xbox after all) and keyboard. The PC port is one of the best ports out there, some major AAA devs could learn a thing or two (I am not kidding).
If you like platformers and you don't own this game yet, for the love of god get it! It's well worth the 14€

Dust: An Elysian Tail...

To be honest, I only bought the game due to the viusals on the previews. Those alone seemed to be amazing and played a decisive factor. At first, given all the reviews, I was a bit sceptycal. I was afraid that it would be an over hyped game by the community and in the end it would something bland. Fortunately, it wasnt the case.

So the big plus on Dust:
+ amazing visuals (except cut scenes - those appear to be from early free flash games)
+ cool combat system. Amazingly fluid!
+ cool soundtrack
+ interesting level construction
+ Easy to play and to master
+ gameplay length just right

The bad:
- Story is rather generic (it has a couple of twists, but nothing unseen before or trully unpredictable)
- may become repetitive at times
- can´t seem to skip some cut-scenes.
- perhaps a "nightmare" mode should be considered

I think those minus can even be neglected / forgotten given the quality of the game. I can imagine myself playing it over again in a couple of years time.

I had fun playing this game. I took my time to make my character quite strong (I think I was level 50 - 52 when I finished the game. I had a lot of fun in some levels, and loved the final boss battle. I have finished the game, recovered my last save, gained a couple of levels only to play the final boss battle again.

I thought that the game could be a bit more difficult. Appart from a couple of situations that were actually tricky, you can almost go through the whole game without actually feeling that you are in an eminent risk of dying. However, this is a dream game at every level for a younger audiance.

My recommendation - get the game and play it. You will often find it on steam sales w 75% discount (I have seen it like that 3 or 4 times until decided that I should buy it), but after playing it, I feel that the full price would be a fair deal.

Hope the analysis was useful for all the undecided.

Cheers,
Latinnus

I had this game from months ago and didn't bother to play long. I thought this game was going to be boring so I don't bother to play long, but today i played again and found out that my first impression of the game is wrong.. I actually love it after 1 hour of playing. I guess I wasn't fond of a "rabbit" as a main character and his accompanion flying cat thing (I forgot what her race name -- again), and I didn't like the control LB-RB to dodge and your first attack will be on counter direction from where you jumped to, took me about 15 minutes until I used to the control.

But after an hour of playing and see the worldmap, the village, the sidequest and everything. I think my first impression was wrong. I keep playing it for hours and found out that this game is actually highly addictive. I think the problem with me was just happened on first hour of playing, I just didn't get the feel of the game (well, this also happened to me 14 years ago with suikoden II --but later I beat this game for 10 times, with all characters +best ending without guide)

I don't want to say much, to avoid spoiling the game. you better play it yourself :)
I recommend this game!

Let me first by stating that this is everything I wanted Odin Sphere to be.

This is a semi open world 2D RPG with mechanics not dissimilar to a fighting game.

- Great art style, the game is gorgeous
- really fun/ in depth mechanics in dealing with enemies
- the soundtrack, my goodness, I listen to it while playing other games due its epicness.

I believe this game suffers from the Psychonauts syndrome. Highly critically acclaimed, however no one heard about it.

This is a beautiful game. I recommend to anyone interested in any genre no matter what you say you play.

Ok. That's out of the way.

What I liked:
+Background Design
+Music and Sound Effects
+Combat* and Control
+Level Design

*Combat feels good but is ultimately pretty shallow. I played on hardcore my first time and by the endgame I was feeling like the game wants you to abuse the Dust Storm and lightning too much. The few combos that are in the game aren't super flashy and the dust storm outshines them really early unless you ignore Fidget and don't craft rings. The dodge ability could have been soley on the right stick and the triggers could've been freed up to modify combos and give some more variety.

What I disliked:
-Character design
-Story is nothing special
-Voice Acting*
-The ♥♥♥♥ing poison shooting plants in Chapter 2 (Seriously ♥♥♥♥ you)

*I actually didn't mind Fidget at all. My issue here might be more with dialog writing than acting. Some of Dust's lines are stupidly edgy and overly dramatic. And the country bumpkin Mudpot people annoyed me a little too. Again that might be a writing issue. I felt a lot of the voices and characters were just fine barring these few.

Overall Dust is a very solid game that I would recommend to fans of action platformers or Metroid style exploration. Made 95% by one dude, it's impressive that a game of this length and scope turned out as well as it did.

Dust is eye candy. Dean Dodrill is a great artist and it shows in this, his first and only game.
To boot, the controls are fluid, the maps are well thought out, and the side-quests are rewarding and straight-forward.
It really shows that Dodrill and I grew up with the same mind-bending 8-bit adventure games. Castlevania and Master Blaster are obvious influences.
The story and characters are solid: nothing too out of the ordinary, but not cheesy, maudlin, or too over the top.
It is well worth the $15, and if you catch it on sale don't hesitate to buy it!

I would tell anyone that know as a friend to play this if I were you. It has a great story, nice beat'em-up styled gameplay, and a huge amount of replay value if you enjoy finding secrets and doing sidequests.

9/10 "Amazing"

From the people of the VGCats website, this game was born. Now this game was something that I never saw before....Either that or I did but I was just distracted by all the beautiful colors. The animation and graphics are beautiful, it had a certain vibe of calmness and beauty into one glorious game. The characters are very likeable, and the main character is a great character. References and abit of fourth wall jokes were funny to, and some of the lines the characters say are pretty funny, too. The game is great and shouldn't be overlooked. One of the finest Hack'n'Slash games I have ever played, and while it's not for everyone, it is something that you will not be disapointed by.

A more than decent side-scrolling beat-em up with RPG elements that is overall fluid but somewhat overstays it's welcome and grows repetetive in the last chapter. The story is deeply, deeply trite, but the characters and their dialogues are charming enough to make up for it.

Gorgeous backgrounds and sound design.

All in all, a very impressive feat for a single developer.

One of the best games I ever had. It is truly EPIC. This game is full of funny moments, which are mostly provided by a cute companion of yours. It is easy to learn how to play, so lately, you can just enjoy very nice graphics, music and flow of the story, which is a little .. I would say different than expected, but still interesting. I will never regret buying this, because this particular game got into my TOP 5 game list easily. I heartily recommend this to everyone. 10/10

An utterly gorgeous game with a compelling storyline.

The combat, of course is not perfect but no game can truly be perfect.
Rarely does a game get me attached to its characters, let alone anthropomorphic animals (Who'd have thunk it?) But really, this game is utterly amazing and it dictated my emotions throughout its entirety.

Played this during an Indie-Game-Saturday event. I have mixed feelings - it certainly is bigger than your average 'indie' game - but in a good way (and without the steep price tag). From the mere 3 hours I played it, it certainly feels like a platformer with strong RPG elements. The art and music are really great. The controls are tight, and the attacks feel really powerful and have very unique mechanics that I have not seen before.

Overall, if you like platforming RPG's - then this is for you. I personally won't play too much more (I don't think), but can see alot of value here for the money.

Beautiful art, great music, fun gameplay, and an interesting story. Apart from some minor graphical glitches, I have nothing bad to say about this old school platform RPG. Can't speak to difficulty, as I played in casual mode, but it was both exciting and relaxing at the same time. Definitely worth playing.
