DUST: AN ELYSIAN TAIL [PG]

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Cover Story -

XBLA, $19.80 ★★★★ This 2D ac­tion plat­former is de­cep­tive. Its stun­ning hand-drawn vi­su­als and en­chant­ing level de­sign be­lie the fact that just one man cre­ated the en­tire game. Like the Metroid and Castl­e­va­nia se­ries be­fore it, Dust is all about the joy of ex­plo­ration mar­ried to a gen­uinely ab­sorb­ing nar­ra­tive. A mas­ter class in old­school game de­sign. Out now.
