Dustforce, an Indie Adventure in the Name of Cleanliness

2D games have certainly found their place among the indie game market. With great indie side-scrollers like Super Meat Boy, Braid, LIMBO, and Cave Story, the genre has gained quite a bit of mainstream appeal. Dustforce is a recent downloadable title that will hopefully be counted as one of this year’s great indie games.

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but janitorial work has never been so much fun. You’re charged with a quest to rid the land of filth in a very literal sense. As one of four unique janitors (wielding either a classic broom, a push broom, a pair of mops, or a vacuum cleaner) each of whom sport ninja-like finesse, you’ll speed along while you clean dust, leaves, garbage, goo, and all sorts of creatures that have been corrupted by the latter.

Cleaning up allows you to build a combo meter and will boost your speed. Running up walls and using enemies to make quick aerial maneuvers can take quite a bit of skill but is always rewarding. Being particularly tricky, you’ll unlock even harder levels that will test your reflexes and focus.

If you’re a fan of games like the original Ninja Gaiden and Shinobi, or perhaps Super Meat Boy left you wanting more fast-paced action, Dustforce is an excellent option that is worth looking in to.
