About this game
Developer: Long Hat House
Content Rating: Everyone10+
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!

Dandara is more than the average Metroidvania and is a game worth your time. Although its unique stop-and-go gameplay may have you stumbling at first, movement turns into an art form as you get accustomed to it. And though not everything about Dandara stands out, the titular character is executed so masterfully it is hard not to be impressed with the folk-lore based heroine.
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.
While a few consistent problems weigh it down, Dandara is still an engrossing adventure. As many times as the in-game map bugged me or the difficulty got me down, I kept at it, working my way through the peculiar world, seeking out new items and upgrades and figuring out how to move around delicately to attack or avoid foes. It might not be for the faint of heart, but Dandara is a wonderfully idiosyncratic game.
