Dandara Launches on Android and iPhone


2D side scrolling action games are slowly making a comeback. Take for instances Dandara for Android (previously on Nintendo Switch). This is an action adventure game that pulls inspiration from Metroid and Castlevania and puts its own spin on the proceedings. The developers have decided to pull a Bionic Commando style move and limit your actions in a rather unique way. I am not sure I am a fan of it yet.

You are not able to move without jumping. This is a rather unique design choice and it certainly changes the dynamics of Dandara. Like I said, they pulled a Capcom’s Bionic Commando style limitation of the player to make the game unique.

Dandara features:

INNOVATIVE CONTROLS – Built natively for both touchscreen and gamepad input, movement and combat interact smoothly and seamlessly.

BOUNDLESS EXPLORATION – Traverse across the esoteric world of Salt through fast and fluid jumps off any surface, unhindered by gravity, in lovingly crafted environments.

CHALLENGING PROGRESSION – Use a combination of speed & skill, wits & reflexes, to solve puzzles, earn powerups, and access areas previously unreachable.

BEAUTIFUL AND IMMERSIVE WORLD – A visual and auditory wonderland comes to life through gorgeous handcrafted pixel art and original soundtrack compositions.
