Full review

Get ready to dash and bash your way through the robotic coliseum in Dasher, a challenging and fun 8-bit style PvE game. As Doctor Moonbad (who's not really a doctor), you'll need to use your dashing abilities to destroy and dismantle enemies by reflecting off walls or directly colliding with them.

Your main objective is to survive long enough to discover an exit and escape the treacherous arena. But be warned, as time passes, the number of enemies increases along with their intelligence, making it harder for you to find the exit with each passing second.

The beauty of Dasher is that death is only just the beginning. No matter how many times you die, there's always a chance for redemption. You can retry as many times as needed while also considering upgrading yourself both physically and aesthetically.

Each time you destroy an enemy, you acquire its bits which can be used by Dasher for improvements. Whether it's becoming stronger or simply looking prettier, collecting these bits adds an extra layer of depth to the gameplay.

The controls in Dasher are simple yet intuitive. Clicking anywhere on the screen creates a pivot point while holding down left mouse button determines Dasher's direction based on cursor position relative to that point. Releasing the button causes Dasher to dash towards its last movement direction - so always aim carefully!

Dive into this challenging yet enjoyable 8-bit world where quick reflexes and strategic thinking are paramount in surviving against hordes of intelligent robotic enemies within punishing environment.
