Editors' Notes

Like its lovable heroes, this sidescrolling brawler packs a heck of a punch. The combat’s fast and fierce, spread across huge levels littered with foes and hidden areas. It’ll be a while before we unlock all the secrets and upgrades, but with so much retro-style fun, we don’t mind a bit.

Loving the update!

Great work with the recent changes to the weekly events! It’s a little annoying having to log on every 24 hours in order to unlock each level, but the three difficulties makes up for it (no, I’m not talking about the story, I think that delay is completely fair too, too bad if some players are too impatient to wait). Together with the time delay, it makes it a more engaging challenge. And the hardest difficulty is so hard that I often have to equip a powerup! It gets me on the edge of my seat and I love it!
A small complaint though, the game crashes whenever I try to use the in-game function in the wardrobe to take a pic of my Custom. It’s been a problem for a while but I don’t know if I mentioned it. It would be nice if you could squash that bug ☺️
Happy gaming!

It’s pretty good

Dan the Man is a great game, it’s aesthetically pleasing, it’s based off a web-series, and the bosses are challenging the first time round’. My main problem is that the post-game is pretty boring. When you finish the game you are rewarded with hard mode, a slightly harder version of the whole game. I have no problem with hard mode at all. It’s pretty challenging, but the rest of the post-game is pretty boring. It’s mainly just grinding a lot in survival and that’s it. I also have a problem with two other modes, regular and adventure mode. It takes a full 24 hours for new levels to unlock on both modes.
