Game review: 'Dandara,' feeling salty

While it's usually pretty easy to understand what a game will be about based on standard game genre classifications, sometimes a title comes around that completely bucks the trend. Such is the case with "Dandara," the new game from developer Long Hat House that could and perhaps likely should be described as a retro-inspired Metroidvania, yet manages not to feel like one. While the familiar notions of room-to-room exploration and the gradual acquisition of abilities are all present and in good form, "Dandara" sidesteps the genre's typical gameplay by removing the basic ability for players to run or even walk. As a result, the game feels less like a throwback adventure and more like an experimental new way to approach the genre – and that means it comes with a substantial learning curve.
