Plataforming at its best.Seibitsu | June 23, 2014 | See all Seibitsu's reviews »
If you love hard and fast paced platformers you'll like Dustforce. You have to make impossible wall jumps, wall runnings along with other movements in order to reach the end. In your way you'll find enemies and dust to clean; actually the enemies can't kill you as you don't have a health bar but if you want to make a level in the most perfect way, you need to kill them ans avoid beign touched.
Amazing and difficult platformerbcf623 | June 11, 2014 | See all bcf623's reviews »
I originally played this game after learning that it was similar to Super Meat Boy which I loved. This game is somewhat different, but it does have one main thing in common: it is very frustrating at times and may cause rage quits. There were multiple things that this game had that caused me to fall in love with it. One of these is the art style, which to me is unique and ironically calming. What I also loved about this game is the fact that there are multiple playable characters that have slightly different forms of movement that can lead to a faster or slower time depending on the map that you are playing. All in all, if you are a fan of platformers, this is a must play.
Hard, but fairDemilisz | Dec. 10, 2013 | See all Demilisz's reviews »
If you love a challenging, very hard platformers you will love a Dustforce. This is like Super Meat Boy, but your goal is to clean each level from dust or leaves or goo or whatever there is. As fast as possible. And as accurate as possible. Using one of four characters you will be cleaning and jumping, reaching places thought to be impossible to reach. Completing this game are not easy, and mastering it to reach high ranks on leaderboards are even harder. You will need a lot of patience to play this as later levels will require to repeat them over and over again looking for just right jump timing to save even quarter of second.
And when you done with singleplayer there is multi waiting with combat mode. If you like this kind of games - buy. The rest will probably destroy their gamepads with rage of fury.

Dustforce was one of those games that blew my mind with the trailer. So I was eager to play it going into the game. Once I got into it, first I fell in love with the music (The artist, Lifeformed is now my favourite music artist) and I had to get a feel for the smooth yet specific platforming. It was a weird feeling, but one tutorial later and I got it. After the first few stages, I realized something. This wasn't an easy game at all. This is like meatboy, but taking itself seriously. So I had a pretty hard time with it. I was pretty good at it, but some levels were just too much, and the progression system was a bit too demanding for me to handle. Then Hitbox decided to release an update for the progression system, to make it a little easier. once that happened, I found myself able to progress, but still having a very fun challenge. Dustforce is a game all about precision and perfect runthroughs. Being able to pull off advanced acrobatics is key to getting anywhere in this game. It leaves no room for people who aren't good at precision platformers. Now, if you're not good at platformers to begin with, don't give this a try, it will just anger you. If you're good at regular platformers, try it out and you will probably like it, albeit needing some practice with the specific fluidity of the controls and movement. if you're already good at percision platformers, then I highly recommend this game, you will thoroughly enjoy yourself. also the music is brilliant and the art style is pleasant as hell.
Gives Super Meat Boy a run for its moneyredhandjohn | July 4, 2013 | See all redhandjohn's reviews »
Dustforce is one of the most fun and fluid platformers out there.
The mechanics are very simple to learn and the difficulty is only set by the level design. Speaking of which the levels are very varied as they span accross multiple themes and difficulties. You're gonna clean forests, castles, labs and cities and you're going to do it in the most bad-ass way possible.
The art style is great, the animations are very polished and the game features one of the best soundtracks you ever heard.
If you like 2D platformers you must buy it.
