A short platformer that never lulls, Dandara is an indie game released by a Brazilian studio. The game takes inspiration from classic Metroidvanias and adds one grand concept: the player character, the titular Dandara, doesn't run-and-jump; instead she can only leap from one salt-covered platform to the next, a simple mechanic that sometimes turns the world upside down (literally).

Dandara is a metroidvania that does exactly what it needs to do and nothing else; but that's not a bad thing. The game has fantastic pixel visuals, tight controls and great world design. What Dandara does not have is filler; at no point did I feel that the game was getting stale, it started strong and finished strong without wasting any of my time in-between. It's easy to recommend this game to anybody who enjoys interesting metroidvanias, wants a shorter experience that they can run through in only a few hours and/or enjoys speedrunning. The end-game breakdown of your run is sure to attract the latter.
