Dandara Trials of Fear is the best version of the game so far, and it's absolutely free for Dandara owners. All the rest of the people should give this metroidvania a chance.

If you are a fan of Metroidvania and Platformer games, we highly recommend this title. The game offers great content for its low price, and is well worth the purchase. Of course, the game is somewhat difficult. It can get a bit challenging and tiresome, but there are cheats in the game that can reduce some of the difficulty. The art direction is also pleasing and makes your playthrough, an enjoyable one. One could consider this game to be a difficult title designed for hardcore gamers, but unlike the Souls games, the difficulty can be adjusted

Initially I was warmed by the retro inspired pixel graphics and music. Dandara dares to be different and it just works. Crazy difficulty spikes made the later areas of the game quite frustrating. Regardless, I can’t deny I still had a lot of fun and the game made me look up some history which is good in my books. As I returned to replay the game I thought about the real Dandara and her struggle to fight against an incredibly difficult cause for the time. While the fight against slavery doesn’t compare to the the struggle of finishing a video game. I spent around two hours fighting the final boss before I succeeded. The lesson I guess I picked up from this is never give up no matter what. You can make it through.

Dandara was a game with high qualifications, and now that it has an expansion that, in addition to new content, also gives it soul, we cannot stop recommending it. A metroidvania different in style and implementation, but just as addictive and recommended as its most notable peers in the genre.
