Super Meat Boy with a Broom

If there is one way to describe Dustforce is that it's basically super meat boy with a broom. It's a level based platformer that is focused on speed runs and score. You're graded on your runs by not only how fast you finished but on how much of the dirt and grime you cleaned up and how skillful you were in doing it. Luckily the gameplay is very fluid and really works well on the keyboard. While the controls take awhile to get used to you'll soon be jumping though levels like a knife through butter which is important once the harder levels start popping up. Probably the most striking part of the game is it's wonderfully simplistic hand drawn 2d art which will run on pretty much everything, shitty laptops included. If you like challenging 2d platformers or just need a game your crappy work computer can run you need Dustforce.

    A Platformer That Makes You Care 0

    A game that I've been enjoying for the past week or so is Dustforce, which is made by the small-scale developer, Hitbox Team. On one hand, yes this is another platformer that has a unique art style and is made (not advertised) to be difficult to progress in and is probably just going to be looked at as Super Meat Boy byproduct or something. The game is based around ninja janitors that beat up the evil forces of dirt and grime and yeah you can just watch the trailer whateverHowever, in contrast t...
