Dustland is game that looks exciting – there’s something mysterious in the avatar of the app that makes you think “Hey, I just found another awesome app on Google Play”. You expect to find exciting gameplay, numerous levels and tons of fun but are they really there?
Well, not quite. The game comes with a simple and straightforward installation process and then it claims it will take you to times unknown where you will chase outlaws and ultimately defeat them to claim prizes. The actual gameplay combines colorful 2D graphics with matching – yes, Dustland is a matching game! You face an outlaw and underneath him there’s a grid where you have to play your usual matching game. When you match three items of the same kind they get eliminated but they also punch the outlaw and cost him health points. He can strike back and cause damage to you too but chances are you will survive so match as many items as you can to defeat this guy and move to the next level where you will meet one more such “hero”. Each successfully completed level brings you points and gear as well so this is nice.
The game, however, has issues and we’ll just mention a few of them – it either requires powerful hardware or is full of bugs. We experienced slowdowns, choppy graphics and freezes and this ruined our gaming sessions so chances are this will happen to you too. We kind of have the feeling that there’s something unfinished and unpolished in this game – the idea as a whole is nice and innovative but it appears Dustland needs some more work before it can fully shine.
The game can be seen right here but our advice is that you should not waste your time with this app.
