A new fighting game has entered the PlayStation battleground! Developed by Singapore-based PD Design Studio and released on 12th April 2018, Dusty Raging Fist is described as “a beautifully hand drawn 2D side scrolling hack and slash game with strategic combat.”
According to its press release, Dusty Raging Fist follows the journey of a fighting rabbit, the titular Dusty and his companions, Kitsune (ninja fox), Darg (deer with brute strength), Leo (arms specialist lion), and Snow (the sharpshooter leopard) in helping the helpless, fighting for a good cause and combating evil.
The game, which acts as a prequel to Dusty’s Revenge, has a variety of combos for players to unlock and upgrade. In Dusty Raging Fist, hack and slash actions are cooly distinctive with more oomph thanks to the usage of elemental powers as the press release had this to say:
“Wield the powers of the elemental bestowed by the Guardians, freeze lakes with the power of ice, smash minions with the strength of the earth, or fire up your fists in flames to bust away ferocious creatures of darkness!”
Here are some key features of the game:
- Co-op Play of up to 3 players.
- Dynamic Combat System.
- Combine different elemental skills to unleash powerful attacks.
- 3 playable beat’em up characters, and 2 combat support characters.
- Utilise your combat support characters (Artillery & Sniper) to aid you in combat.
- Stylistic 2D artwork and animation.
- Pick your rides and kill hordes of menacing foes.
- Crazy boss fights to make your day!
One of the highlights of this title is definitely the ‘co-op play of up to 3 players’ feature. Totally suitable for a game sesh with friends!
Additionally, Ken Poh, co-designer of the game had said, “We've incorporated strategic characters to mix up the hack and slash experience. We have a sniper character called Snow where players can call upon in a first person perspective to snipe pesky enemies from afar. You can also use an artillery function to bomb enemy clusters during brute fight. Even though Dusty Raging Fist is about good old fashion brawl, the use of summons for instance, coupled with these additional strategic characters will heightened the entire experience.”
So is anyone game for a round of Dusty Raging Fist?
