Summary: Is a man defined by his birth, or is a man defined by overcoming his birth? Dust is a 2D side-scrolling video game mash-up. Combining solid hack-and-slash gameplay with lite RPG elements and the platforming/backtracking commonly associated with games in the "Metroidvania" style, Dust is a love letter to the tried and true elements of games that we all know and love.
Summary: Score: 8.5 / 10 Dust: An Elysian Tail Xbox 360 Arcade Developer : Humble Hearts Publisher : Microsoft Studios Release Date : August 15th, 2012 Pros: Captivating art style Simple, fast hitting gameplay Plethora of collectibles and sidequests Cons: Boss encounters feel lacking Enemy variety grows stale until the latter half of the game You cannot judge a book by its cover, but it never hurts to have an eye-catching one.
