About this game

Summary

In a bizarre universe where the oppressed are on the brink of oblivion, Dandara has awoken to reshape the world. As a metroidvania carefully designed with both touch and gamepad in mind, we considered how you could achieve exploration and fast action using either input. The result was a gravity bending world where movement is comprised of jumping from surface to surface in lovingly crafted environments. It's up to Dandara to restore balance and give direction to a directionless world!

There have been so many Metroid-inspired games that it’s almost impossible to stand out. Dandara’s unique movement abilities ensure it’s at least significantly different from its peers. But the same reason that Dandara is so unique is also its biggest setback. The sense of mastery never quite comes, resulting in a game that flashes its potential in one scene only to undermine that thrill soon afterward. Even with its occasional stumbles, though, Dandara offers enough excitement and beauty to push you onward.

In the end, I didn’t enjoy my time with Dandara. The controls, while unique, just didn’t work well for me–especially in combat. Dandara wants players to explore but the incentive just wasn’t there. If you’re looking for a Metroidvania with a unique control experience and a great art styles, Dandara might fit that bill. Otherwise, I’d pass on this otherwise beautiful game.

Dandara is a game all fans of Metroidvanias will want to try. It’s on the PS4, Switch, PC, and even iOS for a mere $12. Its adventure isn’t a super lengthy one, but for a game this unique, the handful of hours you’ll spend with the Brazilian-made game will be more than worth the price of admission. Recommended.
