Dream Dasher is a pretty hand-drawn 2D platformer where you dash nonstop in order to progress- as you may have guessed from the title of the game!
Well, it’s not really nonstop. You have to time it in order to get across gaps that fall into the endless abyss in order to make it through each level. Each level has multiple branching paths with plenty of goodies to be found. You’re a small ball who can roll, jump, and dash, and you’ll need to utilize all of your abilities to make it through the game’s levels.
The artwork for this game is gorgeous. It’s truly hand-drawn with amazing sprites and animations. The game has 6 levels to play through with one boss level to get through using an overworld hub with plenty of cute NPCs to talk to and areas to explore. You’ll feel like you’re playing a mix of Sonic and a bit of Mario (old-school) as you play through the game. You’ll also have to kill enemies. Every one you attack grants you a shield that blocks a single hit. It’s kind of cool.
Some levels are easy, but others are hard. You’ll have to combine your attacks together in order to get across some gaps in the game, which will net you a nice score to gloat over.
Overall, Dream Dasher is a fast-paced and pretty platformer with quality and polished gameplay. Try it out if you like platformers with some pretty artwork.

In other words, I’m a bottom-feeder. Why do I volunteer for this trash?
