I saw Dash Masters and thought that the game looked like fun. It has back-and-forth zig-zag jumping, to go along with homing missiles being shot out, and a dash attack. It’s a high score chaser, as you try to ascend as high as possible, while collecting coins that go toward upgrades. Plus, you have to complete objectives to level up and unlock future upgrades. Certainly a familiar structure for a game, but still entertaining nonetheless.
