About This Game

WHAT IS ERSATZ?

ERSATZ is a speed focused, hardcore Action Platformer with Rhythm elements. Featuring a multiple genre Original Electronic Soundtrack which dynamically builds and changes based on your progression!

In ERSATZ, your dash is also your attack, and hitting enemies recharges a dash block instantly. So use it effectively in combination with your slam to chain actions together and speed through 8 challenging and increasingly intense levels as fast as you can. Can you get an S Rank on every level and playstyle?
