About

Dust: an Elysian Tale is an action role-playing game with metroidvania elements set in an imaginary world called Falana. Dust, the main character, with his sentient sword called Blade of Ahrah and guardian Fidget explores the “2D” side-scrolled environments. According to the storyline, Dust wakes up in the forest meadow and finds himself unconscious. Then, after meeting the sentient sword and its keeper, Dust decides to find the keys to his past. Players are offered to assume the role of Dust on his way through the world. Dust can upgrade his characteristics (health, magic, strength, and defense) by spending gained experience points. The gameplay also features metroidvania mechanics, so players have to progress within the game and upgrade Dust’s skills in order to achieve special goals hidden throughout Falana. During Dust’s travel through levels players are able to contact with other characters to trade or to get side quests.

A very beautiful game, but as a platformer and beat-em-up, it's not very interesting. All combats including most boss fights can be won by randomly mashing buttons, and the last boss fights is only hard because of its length. Also, I couldn't bring myself to care about the story. Main antagonist motivations were never explained: while genocide is always bad, maybe he had his reasons? I mean, he wasn't the Senseless Evil type, some demon or an alien. At some point, the game even made an attempt to evoke some emotions for him, though it fell as flat as the rest of the story. Cute characters, though.
