    If you were ever going to shell out for a iOS game that is premium to its core, you want to do it for one that earns it with stellar gameplay, stylish presentation and just the right dash of nostalgia. Dandara connects all of those dots the same way it gets you leaping from point to point, and there's a good chance you're going to be spending plenty of time with it if you give it a shot.

    I'd been looking forward to Dandara ever since trying it out almost a year ago, so I'm ecstatic that it's finally available. It's proven to be well worth the wait too, because this game is superb in every aspect. The visual style is gorgeous, the sound is delightful, controls are intuitive and streamlined, and the mechanic is different but satisfying. I know it's early on in the year, but this is a contender for game of the year for me.

    Yes, some people are going to find that steep price point a little off-putting, but this is a superb mobile game that's releasing at the same time on the App Store as it is on other platforms. But even if it wasn't, there'd still be a case to be made that Dandara was worth it. If you're a fan of superbly designed action games, then you owe it to yourself, and to the devs, to give this one a try.

    Dandara’s take on the Metroidvania formula is admirable, but unfortunately not well realized.
