Dustforce is a lovely game for those that enjoy speedy platformers with an emphasis on control over one's character. The janitors in Dustforce can jump off walls, run up walls, run up ceilings, and perform multiple double jumps by defeating enemies. Gameplay consists of mastering the route through a level to sweep up all the dust while continuing one's combo (which can be done by running over dust or hitting enemies) and avoiding spikes, pits, and enemy attacks. The game employs a ranking system that judges based on completion (how much dust was ran over and how many enemies were defeated) and finesse (how few hits and restarts taken). This game is perfect for those who go for perfect ranks in modern Sonic titles.

However, later levels in the game approach unfair difficulty, spamming spikes and requiring jumps and dashes to be timed down to the millisecond to succeed. Thankfully, it is not necessary to play any of these levels, and the game can be obtained at a price cheap enough to warrant playing only the well-designed levels in the first half of the game.

This game does not have a skill ceiling. 90 hours in and I've just started learning how to play.

Dustforce is a great game, the only criticism you can give it is that its too hard, and in my mind thats not an issue, as i felt rewarded by getting better and better till i could continue, that said. if you arent the kind of person who enjoys being kicked in the ♥♥♥ for a bit until you improve i suggest you avoid dustforce.

As an acrobatic janitor, sweep away grime from dust drenched dwellings and soot soaked forests in the accommodation of an aurally euphoric soundtrack - perhaps the most tranquil one you've ever heard. Dustforce's unique, minimalist visuals perfectly convey the beauty of the game's colourfully arrayed horizons, from which you will surely enjoy purging filth. Hope your fingers are dexterous enough to tame dust bunnies in record time.

It's a rare case where you will actually have FUN climbing the scoreboards.

SO TAKE A FEW MINUTES OUT OF YOUR PATHETIC LIFE AND PICTURE THIS FOR A SECOND

YOU'RE A JANITOR
NOT SOME SMELLY MINIMUM WAGE JANITOR, NO

YOU'RE A NINJA JANITOR
YOU RUN AROUND AT SPEEDS INCOMPREHENSIBLE TO MANKIND, RUN UP AND JUMP OFF OF WALLS, RUN ACROSS CEILINGS, AND JUMP WHILE IN THE AIR
ALL WHILE BEING A GOOD CITIZEN AND CLEANING UP THE POLLUTION AMERICA DOESN'T GIVE A FLAMING BADGER'S BUNGHOLE ABOUT

YOU WANT ACTION? THIS GAME'S GOT ACTION
AS IF BEING A FLIPPIN' NINJA WASN'T ENOUGH FOR YOU, YOU CAN ALSO BEAT THE HELL OUT OF DIRTY NEVER-DO-WELLS WHICH [SPOILER ALERT] TURN OUT TO BE FRIENDLY CITIZENS WHO WERE CORRUPTED BY THE POLLUTION OF AMERICA

THERE'S FIVE DIFFERENT AREAS AND TWO WAYS TO BE THE BEST AT THEM
YOU CAN EITHER BE JESUS INCARNATE AND CLEAN UP EVERYTHING WITHOUT GETTING HIT
OR YOU CAN GO FASTER THAN SONIC THE HEDGEHOG AND BEAT THE LEVEL AS FAST AS POSSIBLE
I DON'T THINK YOU'RE MAN ENOUGH TO DO IT

WARM UP YOUR BADASS GAUGE IN THE FOREST BY CLEANING UP DEAD FOLIAGE
START REACHING SPEEDS OF "HOLY JESUS" IN THE CITY BY LITERALLY TAKING OUT THE TRASH
HIT YOUR STRIDE IN THE MANSION WHERE THE FAT RICH FARTKNOCKERS CAN'T BE BOTHERED TO CLEAN UP OR SAVE THEIR SMOKIN' HOT MAIDS [WHO ARE ALSO CORRUPTED BY THE EVIL POLLUTION]
BECOME A NINJA JANITOR SCIENTIST IN THE LABORATORY WHERE ALL THE POT-HEADS SPILLED TOXIC WASTE EVERYWHERE
AND THEN IF YOU'RE A BAD ENOUGH DUDE, ENTER THE VIRTUAL REALITY ROOM AND CRY OUT YOUR PUSS BECAUSE THOSE LEVELS ARE BRUTAL

BUT WAIT YOU THOUGHT THERE WAS ONLY ONE CHARACTER? HAHAHAHA OH WOW
THERE'S A GRAND TOTAL OF FOUR JANITOR NINJAS WHO ARE READY TO ANSWER THE CALL TO CLEANING
CLEANING UP CRIME
DUSTMAN, THE BLUE EVERYMAN WHO THE GAME IS MADE AROUND. LIKES BEING A BADASS AND LONG WALKS ON THE BEACH
DUSTGIRL, THE RED FEMALE CHARACTER WHO IS BASICALLY DUSTMAN BUT FALLS FASTER AND HAS DIFFERENT ATTACK RANGES. ALSO WANTS DUSTMAN'S D BUT HONESTLY WHO DOESN'T
DUSTKID, THE PURPLE WONDER CHILD WHO ATTACKS FASTER THAN A DRAGONBALL Z FIGHT AND CAN JUMP THREE TIMES. ONLY DOWNSIDE IS HER JUMPS ARE SHORTER THAN YOUR PINKY FINGER AND HER ATTACK RANGE IS MELEE ONLY. SHE'S ACTUALLY FROM THE FUTURE WHERE DUSTMAN AND DUSTGIRL BANG EACH OTHER
DUSTWORTH, THE BADASS GRANDPA WHO USES A VACUUM AND DOESN'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT IT. JUMPS HIGHER THAN ANYONE ELSE AND HAS THE BIGGEST ATTACK RANGE BECAUSE OF HIS RAD VAC. SUCKS THAT HE ATTACKS SLOWER THAN A TURTLE IN MOLASSES. HE MAY BE OLD BUT HE HAS TO BE BADASS IF HE'S PART OF AN ELITE TEAM OF NINJA JANITORS

IS YOUR CROTCH THROBBING WITH ANTICIPATION YET? BECAUSE MINE IS
