Super Bit Dash mixes classic 80’s platforming with perpetual scrolling
Are you the kind of person who can’t get enough of that super retro, “old school”, 8-bit Nintendo-feeling gaming? Do you not carry around a Sega Master System everywhere you go because of that fancy iOS device? Well get your hipster glasses and SLR camera ready, because developer FakePup has got you in their sights with the release of their retro-infused second mobile game, Super Bit Dash.
Super Bit Dash has those fond memories of mid 80s gaming action spilled all over it. From the graphics to the chiptuned soundtrack, this platformer is like a vertical slice lifted right out from that moment in time. The biggest nod to being a modern game is the complete and utter lack of a virtual d-pad. Instead, your character is perpetually moving forward and you can swipe or tap to have him dash forward, slam on the brakes, jump, dodge, duck, dip, dive, or dodge. Alright, well maybe you can’t dodge… I just let myself get a bit carried away. I think you get the idea.
The randomly-generated levels provide a good amount of surprise, and there are two difficulty levels available to satiate your need for masochistic gaming if you so desire. There’s no word yet on release date yet, but we’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for this one. Expect to see Super Bit Dash on both Android and iPhone platforms.
