Stylish indie game Dandara released on Android
Brazilian indie game studio Long Hat House has released its latest game, Dandara, on the Play Store. While it isn’t likely to be the biggest release this month — that will surely be either Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition or Tekken Mobile — it is nonetheless a fun looking game.
The premise behind the game is that a bizarre universe is on the edge of collapse. Luckily, the oppressed people living in this world have a hero to save them. Enter Dandara. Playing as the heroine, you will have to make your way through a large game universe filled with mystical creatures in order to save the day.
While the story follows a well-trodden path, the game’s most interesting point is the unique way the players are able to traverse the in-game world. Instead of simply walking, the main character is guided through the game’s environments using a series of jumps from surface to surface. This results in an action-packed game where the player is constantly having to use their skill to avoid coming to a sticky end.
This movement style works well on touchscreen devices, although the game’s high price and lack of an option to try it out first is likely to be off-putting for some users. As well as being available on the Play Store, Dandara is also available on PC, PS4, Switch, and iOS.
In other recent gaming news, anonymous informants have claimed that Google is readying a game streaming service that would allow users to play games without the need to download the game to their device.
