Dust is fantastic. A friend showed me the game long ago when it first came out, and I just recently got it for myself on this account. Getting to finally go through the game in full is awesome. The gameplay is simple, but still has plenty of flexibility between the swordplay and the magic. The art is fun, and the voice acting isn't so bad! Particularly the characters who 'matter'. Obviously many side characters don't have as much focus, but Dust, especially Fidget, Ahrah, and Haley are amazingly well voiced. And the many references are a lot of fun too.

Did I mention Fidget is the best character ever? Because she is.

I was pleasantly suprised by this game. Its a bit cheesy at times but the story and characters are good enough that I wanted to progress through the story. The game can be kinda tough at the start but as you unlock crafting and get better equipment, the difficulty is significantly reduced. I didn't feel like there was any grinding (although I would farm some areas for crafting materials even though they can simply be purchased). A lot of the areas have hidden treasure which is marked on the map so you never have to comb through a level just to find the one area you missed. The combat is fun, the mix of the basic attack and 'dust storm' combo makes it really satisfying to really get that combo counter into the 100's (or 1000's!).

I came to this game expecting a good action plataformer and it by far exceeded my expectations.
It's a very beatiful game, the controls are precise and responsive, levels are intricate but not too much and the euipment crafting system gives a compeling feel of growth as you play through the game. Apart from that the story is good and has some surplrisingly deepness at some points, and although it is completely scripted you can feel the weight on the characters shoulders and it is easy to sympathize with the main ones.

Pros:
- Good combat system
- Good level design
- Beautiful graphics
- Good story

Cons
- Some may find the art style a bit childish
- Some enemies and last boss area are copy and pasted
- Cutscenes sometimes are broken on my linux configuration

Bottom line, I appreciate this game very much. Came to it with no big expectations and got a nice adventure that kept entertained for hours. There is no new game+ option, but if you like to refine your combo skills, higher difficults might give you a good challenge.

The game is not bad, but very repetitiv. You basically do the same thing the whole way through the entire game, except some few platform parts and maybe bosses. It's impressive that one person made it, but it didn't knock me off my feet.

This game is a real treat. The controls are tight, the voice acting is good, difficulty curve is well balanced, and everything fits together so very well. I am looking forward to more games in this vein from Humble Hearts.

On a technical note, this game benefited greatly from the ultra low motion blur mode on my old ROG Swift monitor. If you have a monitor with that feature, this game's art style is practically designed to showcase it.

No doubt one of the best games i've played for many years!
Great story, stunning graphics and beautifull sounds.
If there is anything wrong with this game, it must be that it's a bit short (10-25 hours playtime).
Looking forward to the sequel!

This game is gorgeous and the dialogue can be funny. Some of the voices are annoying though. I like that some of the tasks are more challenging than others. I am almost done with my first play through and plan to go again at a higher difficulty setting.

Astonishing game. There's brilliant music and art, amazing story and sweet characters (everyone has their own personality and a story; even the minor characters like Matti boi), the voice acting- it's superb and lots of bloopers which I loved. Lotsa action, collectibles, arena challenges, weather change, atmospheric atmosphere, crafting, leveling, dem-feels and deez nuts. Would definitely play it for the third time on a higher difficulty.

Little kidsy and a bit to easy, but a very well put together game. It's weakness is in the loot, they built room for much more depth in their items and character that they don't use. However everything that is there is fully fleshed out with a very attractive come together in their art in motion.

All things considered, Dust is a fantastic metroidvania-esque game. I heard that one guy did almost all of the work on the game by himself. I think the only thing was the voice acting and some of the sound effects.

Some of the best features:

Great mechanics
Tight controls
Superb voice acting for a game of this scope
Combat feels great all the way through the game. Simple at it's core, but plenty to play around with
A great length for the scope and price of this game. I think my first playthrough on Normal took around 10 hours if I remember correctly
Sound and visual feedback during combat is one of the best I've ever seen, at least for a game of this scope.

Some things that might put people off:

Animal characters. I like the decision, but it may not be everyone's cup of tea
Combat may seem repetetive if you do the same one or two combos over and over
"easy" in the sense that there's no real difficult puzzles and enemies. Some can be challenging the first few times though. It's a game that you're meant to run through though, so the enemy mechanics shouldn't need to be very deep. Still, may not be for everyone.
Story is okay. Nothing groundbreaking though. Voice acting makes up for it in my mind however.
Dialogue-heavy at parts, but all the dialogue is skippable, so it's fine if you just wanna play and not pay attention.

Overall:

Good:
+Gameplay/combat
+Length
+Voice Acting

Ok:
Story
Level Design

Meh:
-Animal characters (if it's not your thing, didn't bother me)
-Lengthy (skipable) dialogue

8.5/10. Pretty great pick-up, especially for the scope of the game. Anyone who likes platformers or metroidvania type gameplay will be pleased. Hardcore mode offers a decent enough challenge. I'm pretty good at taking out enemies but I still die plenty and have to make careful decisions at times.

Breathtaking.

Music, art, story, atmosphere... 10/10.

Combat is pretty satisfying, though I wouldn't suggest playing on the higher difficulties.

For me, this is a one-and-done game. I don't see a ton of replayability. That said, this was one of my best gaming experiences ever.

Don't let the "deviantart furry" art style fool you, this is one of the best metroidvanias out there, a lot of emphasis on the "vania" part as there's a lot of influence from the old Castlevania games as well. Combat heavy but not light on exploration. Good characters and voice acting. Great environments. Lots of good action (though maybe a bit simple). I really like the store system where you catalogue crafting items by selling one to a store, and after that stores start gradually stocking up on them, so you don't have to go grind for them yourself when you need them.

A fun, immersive game, not much of a challenge even on the highest difficulty setting. The voice acting can be subpar at times but good at others; overall it's a nice game to mindlessly kill things for a while. Some humour here and there as well.

The game itself:

I have played it to a completion of about 83% in 15.5 hours, so it has a decent lenght, I absolutely adore this game and i realy wish for a sequel


but anyway, i am getting distracted, here are the pros of the game:

+ a very epic and wonderfull story
+ Characters who all have their unique charm
+ gorgeous scenery and music
+ a very fluid combat style
+ no material "grinding" once you sold a piece of material, the shopkeepers will restock it themselfes overtime
+ a very nicely done crafting system


but as with every game, there are contras altho i cant find many:

- some secret areas are impossible to find without a guide or something (and thats something you WILL need to do for some certain quests)
- some may think that the game is to cartoony in terms of style, but thats something i personally love
- platforming can be a bit unbalanced at times
- you need insane ammounts of healing items on the higher levels

One of the best arcade style games I've played. Complete with an amazing blend of skill and button mashing. Dust: An Elysian Tail has interesting characters, involving story, and rewarding combos.

If you are willing to look past the near impossible battles that can take hours to get right, then you should definiantly pick up Dust: An Elyssian Tail

This is an extremely fun Platformer/Hack n' Slash that includes tons of fun secrets and interesting upgrades that will keep you playing until the end, and if you're a completionist, to the end of the end.

I highly recommend it as one of the first memorable purchases I've had on Steam.

A short, beautiful game that tells an unexpectedly satisfying, meaningful story. As a platforming beat-em-up, it's not particularly difficult or complex, but the strong vocal performances propel the game forward in an immersive, compelling way. Upgrades and new abilities are well-paced throughout, allowing you to choose whether you'd like to keep pushing forward, or backtrack for hidden treasures. I will separately note that the musical score is also extremely strong, with Hyperduck providing BGM that is memorable and very much a pleasure to listen to.

With so many games featuring a laundry-list of tacked-on features or grindy content filler, it is refreshing to play an exploration game that gets to the point by focusing on its core competencies, and does them well. This game was recommended to me, and I now recommend it to you.

Fun 2D sidescrolling action! Some of the best controls for a controller based PC game! The characters and animation are well done, fun, and interesting. I'm very glad I played this game. It reminded me of playing Megaman or Viewtiful Joe back when they were good... all the well designed abilities, etc.
