Reviews Round Up – Part 2

Game Vortex (85%)
“I had fun with Dusty Revenge and think fans of side scrolling beat ‘em ups or modern action games like Devil May Cry will as well.”

Generacion Pixel (Spanish Review) (8/10)
“A new opportunity for those who miss divide right and left, as they once did. The closest thing to a pure beat em up I’ve seen in a Indie game to date”

“Very wise idea to implement a combo system that comes straight from the classic 1v1 fighting titles. No doubt the big news and best idea brings Dusty Revenge.”

Mash Those Buttons (3.5/5)
“It’s got a huge move set, simple attacks to learn, beautiful stages, great enemy and level design, and a fun, unique soundtrack. It does a lot of work to keep the game interesting and varied for its players, something very few brawlers manage to pull off effectively.”

Calm Down Tom (4/5)
“The art style and old western feel of the story had me enjoying myself immensely. And the combat was nice and challenging, even on normal mode. All in all, a wonderful way to take out the stresses of a normal working day by exploding, shooting and beating the bejeebles out of anything that had the audacity to appear on-screen.”

8 Bit Horse
“Dusty Revenge is a solid brawler that keeps things interesting with its strong visual style, even though the characters themselves are weakened through poor writing. Still, the game offers a beautiful 2D world filled with colorful creatures in need of a stylish beat down, which should appeal to fans of single player melee action. Combat is generally satisfying, and your ever-growing combo repertoire gives you plenty of ways to deal with enemies, even if they prove to be a bit underpowered against the huge bosses.”

Reviews Galore

Reviews for Dusty Revenge have started to come in. And yes, we have been receiving positive reviews! Check them out below.

“All in all, it feels like a condensed 2D Devil May Cry 3, which is a great thing, and shows that PDDesignStudio really has a knack for designing technical action.”

“All along the way, the art is stunning, breaking the boundaries of an indie studio and venturing into major release territory.”

“Dusty’s signature style of badassery and juggernaut revenge is the perfect complement for the endless combat and gunplay.”

“The real juicy parts of the game take a little time to kick in (why isn’t the bear with the massive gun there from the beginning?!), but once they do you’ll realize this is much more than a simple sidescrolling punchfest.”

“Dusty Revenge is a terrific action platformer game, that delivers everything a player could ask for, in terms of high 2D quality, art design, engaging storyline and replay value.”

“Dusty Revenge is a fast paced 2D action platformer that stays true to its fighting genre and strengthens the shoot and beat ‘em up style of gameplay.”

“The gameplay driving Dusty Revenge is compelling and engaging in a way that brings to mind some of the best examples of the side-scrolling beat ‘em up genre from the glory days of the 16-bit and arcade eras.”

“Dusty does not go into combat alone. This fact is the game’s big twist on the genre and one that it employs to great effect.”

(Polish Review)

“(The boss fights)They are well designed, and the fight can be a number of dimensions ……..a masterpiece of the genre.”

(German Review)

“Dusty Revenge is a real surprise. The studio from Singapore puts a lot of love and passion in this item. This is evident in the details, and also in the work..”

(French Review)
