Challenging platforming for all skill levels.
Tons of stages to unlock.
Leaderboards let you watch others' replays.
Stylish, fluid platforming.
Fantastic level design.
Some features lack basic explanation.
A few performance issues.
Trial-and-error can become frustrating.
Multiplayer is underdeveloped.
Overworld is disappointingly empty.

Dust and grime surround us. Every day, they collect atop coffee tables and in forgotten kitchen corners, but no more. In Dustforce, it's time to fight back. Filth falls before four acrobatic janitors--each equal parts ninja and handyman. Their world...75

Dustforce easily merits the low, $10 barrier to entry. Some better in-game explanation concerning Dustforce’s content and mechanics would really help, but this addictive platformer succeeds nonetheless. The artful way the characters’...80

I don't like repeating myself. Games that barrage me with tedious trial-and-error usually end up on the wrong end of the woodchipper. So Dustforce legitimately shocked me when I realized that -- while leaping, dashing, and sliding my way through my...90
