Editors’ Notes

It’s just gorgeous. The moment we began playing Dust, we couldn’t stop marveling at the beauty of its hand-painted landscapes. That first impression never fades as the action kicks in, sending you on a whirlwind adventure to uncover the truth behind the main character’s past. This 2D side-scroller blends platforming with furious combat as you bound through the air, stringing together combo after combo. Incredibly responsive controls make Dust a real pleasure to play, and we never tired of pushing ahead to see what the dazzling visuals and challenging combat had in store for us next.

This is the best game and will forever be!

Honestly, I did not know what would come out of this game. I thought you would do some cool fighting but never like this. My thoughts could not compare to this game at all. They graphics, sounds,quests, and everything else could not of been any better. This will probably be the game the year. Maybe even the decade!
If the creators ever put this game on VR I would literally pass out. This game shows what it's like to find who you are. I haven't finished it yet but when I literally had to play part of the game over since I hadn't played in a while and did not know what was happening, I went through it all again and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my gaming life. Even if you start over you discover more and this game will never bore me out.
This game literally blew me out of the water. I never thought a game like this would ever exist. I'm not going to spoil the content so anyone who reads this will be ready to embark on one of the most exiting adventures of their lives. My opinion may not count but I want to support this game forever. It's worth the money and could never get any better( unless the creator is reading this and decides it could get better *wink, wink*).
Thank you for making this game and I hope there are more to come.

This game is amazing! I played this game a long time ago on Xbox and it's still one of my favorite games. It has an amazing story, great dialog, tons of voice actors, tons of content, a leveling system, side quests, and a whole lot more! The visuals are absolutely beautiful. It's all hand painted worlds that makes a 2D game feel like a 3D environment.

Now that I'm done gushing about the game itself let's talk about the mobile port. It's honestly one of the best ports I've seen so far. The controls are fluid and easy to grasp, very little bugs, it stayed as vanilla as possible (meaning very little changes between mobile and console versions), and a very customizable interface. You can select between swipe or button controls. The best part is that there's no irritating analog stick in this port. I have such a hard time using a fake analog stick in ported games lol. I would recommend this game to anyone of all ages and it's price is an amazing deal since you get way more than what you pay for.
