Review: Dandara

February 07, 2018 1 min read

Dandara is a metroidvania with a unique method of movement. It may not set the world on fire, but it certainly has an audience. The story revolves around a woman named Dandara who must fight some evil guys because they’re being jerks. That’s pretty much it. There isn’t a whole lot of dialogue either, but there really doesn’t need to be. The gameplay is what’s important.

The one thing that really sets this game apart from its contemporaries is the way that you travel between places. Instead of the typical standard, the character is limited to diagonal jumps. You tilt the joystick in the direct you desire, press the “A” button, and then watch as your character shoots across the screen. 

While this mechanic is one of the few things that Dandara does differently, it’s also one of its most frustrating features.
