Dusty Revenge is a pretty interesting 2D action platformer that reminded us a bit of Shank. In Dusty Revenge, players take the role of Dusty, a vicious multi gun wielding madman that boasts intense melee attacks. Players can also call upon two support characters, Rondel the artillery support who tramples enemies with a massive arsenal of weaponry and beastly rocket launchers, and McCoy the sharpshooter who takes down loads of enemies stealthily with his rifle.
Dusty Revenge is an addictive indie title. Before drawing early conclusions, know this: Dusy Revenge will not leave you speechless with its combos, or its visuals, or its gameplay mechanics. It’s not the epitome of 2D platformers and does not sport lots of ‘funky’ visual effects. Still, this does not mean that Dusty Revenge is a bad game. On the contrary. We had a lot of fun with it. It’s just that we’d want something a liiiiiiitlle bit more.
And even though we enjoyed playing Dusty Revenge, we are a bit hesitant about recommending it. You see, its control system is a bit weird and needs some time in order to get used to it. Not only that but sometimes the camera is really, really, reallyyyyy close to the characters, making it almost impossible to enjoy the title during those scenes. I know I know, nitpicks but what can I say?
On the other hand, though, PC lacks such action platform titles and the art style of Dusty Revenge is just beautiful. Furthermore, and once you get used to its controls, you’ll be able to perform some cool combos (or combine some, that depends on you and your gaming style). And while you’ll be wondering whether there is anything special about this game, you’ll actually catch yourselves enjoying it.
At the end of the day, it all comes down to this: Dusty Revenge is fun. Yes, it has its problems, there is no argue about that. However, this is an enjoyable 2D action platform indie title. It may not be THE best action platform indie title with the deepest combo system, it certainly is though way better than your average platformers.
