Anodyne 2: Return to Dust

Where you play as a vacuum cleaner.

In a world plagued by evil dust, you have been created to save everyone... by cleaning it away! This two person creation certainly has a lot of love put into it, but the dated graphics and the entire premise take a bit of getting used to. It also suffers from the "huge empty space" syndrome which is only mitigated by your character being able to transform into a car. If you thought that was odd, your main ability is to be able to shrink down into life forms (sometimes multiple steps down) to clean them from within!

Not the best quality graphics wise.

The shrink stages have a more 2D feel to them and is where most of the puzzles lie. Thankfully nothing is too hard in this game, and provided you stick with it at the start you will be rewarded by a decent story (expect a bit of reading). It definitely turned out better than I originally thought it would, so I do recommend it to those feeling adventurous and applaud the creators for what they achieved. All up, it gets 2.5 sparks out of 5.

Insight: The card finder is the only important item to buy with meta coins. Everything else are extras.
