Dexteritrip from Undercoders is a very challenging 2D game on Nintendo Switch that is going to chew you up and spit you out. Learn more in our Dexteritrip review!
Dexteritrip is a game with a steep learning curve and considerable difficulty spikes all over the place. The controls work properly for the game, but the challenge is high, so you won’t have a big window of opportunity to make the right move at the right time to stay alive. The first handful of levels are easy compared to what you’ll be facing for the rest of the game, and by the time you hit level then you’re going to be needing a lot of patience to keep at it and try until you succeed.
The controls for the game are something that you’ll need to use for a bit to get the hang of things. You can move up and down and jump to change gravity and play upside down, but each jump will cost you a life. Because of this, you need to collect the pink shapes to keep your lives topped up. And here is where things get quite challenging. Two modes are available for Dexteritrip. The first one is called Kill them all mode and it challenges you to kill the various shapes within each level. You need to kill the orange shapes to progress, and when you add how the controls work, things can be hectic. Each level contains not only enemies but also a variety of platforms and projectiles which you have to avoid, so you’re going to have to pay a lot of attention.
The second mode is called Keep the Flow, and it’s a mode based on gravity. You change gravity to avoid obstacles and to reach the exit. The challenge is still high, but the gameplay flow is has a different feel due to how you need to progress through each level. The first level will let you see what you’re going to be going up against, and then the second level dials up the difficulty to 11.
Dexteritrip is a very challenging 2D fast-paced game aimed at the hardcore gaming community with 100 levels of high difficulty. It offers a minimalist art style so that you can focus on the gameplay as you try to stay alive, avoiding hazards while trying to complete the different requirements for each of the game modes. It’s available for $6.99, and it’s a crazy hard game not aimed at the average gamer. Are you up for the challenge?
