    While the levels are perhaps a little too long for their own good at times, Dan the Man is a surprisingly solid and charming action game.

    Dan The Man is old-fashioned beat ’em up fun of the purest kind, blended with classic platforming and sprinkled with a sense of humor. If no part of that formula interests you, it’s possible you might be new to video games altogether — in which case this would still be a nice entry point for you, so dive in anyway.

    Dan the Man is a simple but really solid action platformer, fun and addictive, with very nice retro graphics and sound.

    Dan The Man is a great action platformer that reminds us that sometimes simplicity is the key to success.

    A bright and bold platformer that might be a little formulaic but does everything it sets out to do brilliantly.

    Excellent port of the great Dan the Man web series. Excellent playability from the classic 8 and 16 bit era.

    Dan The Man is the most enjoyable old school 2D sidescrolling "beat em' up" since River City Ransom. Such a shame that this game flew under the radar,
