The original images and videos of Dustforce introduced a beautifully rendered world and unique concept of a platformer based upon sweeping. The game's stunning visuals and innovative gameplay were quite impressive for only a group of four developers...

Half of Dustforce offers a thrilling and innovative approach to the platforming genre with stunning visuals and music, concise movement controls, and in-depth leaderboard support. The other half of Dustforce suffers from challenging difficulty and the...

In a day and age when game companies are more eager to ensure that the player sees all a game's content, rather than be challenged by it, indie developer Hitbox Team presents Dustforce. Its premise of acrobatic janitors versus the forces of dust and...

And then, against all odds, you might succeed. The farther along you get, though, the more likely you won’t.

Review: Dustforce

 

The hardcore platformer is going through a bit of a revival of late thanks to titles like N+ and Super Meat Boy. In fact these two games seem to have a heavy influence on Dustforce, although developer Hitbox Team has infused plenty of their own great...

Most people see a janitor's job as being a boring, mundane occupation. What if you were a janitor cleaning up not only trash and dirt, but taking out dirt monsters while performing acrobatic moves in the air?

Beautiful visuals and animations ; Wonderful soundtrack ; Technical yet fun game play ; Controller enabled

Controls take some getting used to ; Local multiplayer only ; Many levels locked until you perfect unlocked levels

In recent years, the platform game has been coming back into style with releases such as Rayman Origins and Donkey Kong Country Returns catching the attention of gamers across the globe. But there have always been those certain platformers that test...

As I said at the beginning of this review, I have played a lot of challenging games in my time, but Dustforce is one that has asked more of me as a gamer than any other in recent memory. It asked me to refine my skills like no other, to sharpen my...

Let's Fight. Let's Rock. Let's Dust!

Absolutely exudes style; Fun, fluid platforming; High-score style; Super Smash Bros Multiplayer; Online leaderboards and replays

But will I ever unlock those levels

You could do much worse than Dustforce. In the cold of winter, it's a good time to wrap yourself around a tightly balanced, stylishly presented, hardcore platformer with a ton of replay value. Dustforce fits the bill. It's the best game I've played...

If at first you don't succeed, clean, clean again.

Stylish, fluid platforming; gorgeous aesthetic; fantastic level design

Trial-and-error can become frustrating; multiplayer is underdeveloped; overworld is disappointingly empty

I checked out the official Hitbox Team site and learned that they're an exciting collection of four male humans: Woodley Nye, Lexie Dostal, Matt Bush, and Terence Lee. Established in 1792, Hitbox Team is currently the world's oldest living organism,...

No game I've played since 'Splosion Man has both infuriated and made me as happy as Dustforce.

Dustforce easily merits the low, $10 barrier to entry. Some better in-game explanation concerning Dustforce’s content and mechanics would really help, but this addictive platformer succeeds nonetheless. The artful way the characters’ abilities allow...

A tricky and technical 2D platformer, Dustforce delights the senses with its harmonious score and sweeping sense of momentum.

Challenging platforming for all skill levels ; Entrancing soundtrack ; Tons of stages to unlock ; Leaderboards let you watch others' replays

Some features lack basic explanation ; A few performance issues

There are a handful of other, smaller issues that drag Dustforce down from greatness. On one computer, the game performed without issue, while on another similar setup, it suffered major performance dips when traversing the overworld and would...

Dustforce comes into its own after you've invested some time, transforming into a frantic and occasionally frustrating experience that manages to eke out repeat play.
