Broom For Improvement: Dustforce Level Editor

By Adam Smith on April 30th, 2012 at 1:45 pm.

Enticingly attractive sweep ‘em up Dustforce will receive a spit, a polish and a level editor tomorrow. It’s all free of charge to existing owners, although that does mean you’ll be spat on and rubbed with a dishcloth whether you like it or not. Their rules, not mine. I used to enjoy making levels for games but at some point it stopped being fun and started feeling like a chore. Imagine my wide-eyed glee when I saw the video below, showing off the simplicity of Dustforce’s construction equipment.

It’s like Paint! Even I can use Paint!

So, this is what they have…

Simple. Knuckles cracked, beret donned, let’s see what I’ll be able to bring to the spring cleaning party.

not actually my best effort. Probably my second best effort.

And, yeah, it just looks like I’ve smeared poos with moustaches all over a neatly trimmed lawn.

    Maybe I should Dust it off and try again.

        Oh how will i be able to force myself to stop playing once this update hits?

    • Ridnarhtim says:

      I guess that leaves me no choice but to go install it.

    Luckily the game is about cleaning up a mess

    Another game I bought and barely played. I really need to stop doing that.

    • The First Door says:

      Same here! I think I only completed a couple of levels.

      • jamesgecko says:

        To be fair, completing a couple levels is pretty challenging in this game…

  4. Wedge says:

    Hmmm, guess they’re not gonna be including putting hidden treasure things in the levels now? Oh well, maybe I’ll finally go back and beat it at least now, supposed to be some level re balancing in it too.

    Let me know when they make a version with a control scheme for clumsy folks like me.

    It’s headlines like this that bring me back to RPS every day.

    I liked Dustforce a lot, but it’s really hard. After eight hours or so, I’d unlocked all the forest and castle levels and not much else. Hopefully this brings an influx of more levels I’m actually physically capable of playing.

    I figured out the best way for me to play this game a few days ago and it’s this:
    Finish up the level you were working on the day before (double s rank it).
    Explore a new one and get a feel for it, to be beaten the next day.
    If a level actually ends up being easy or easyish, then it doesn’t count; I’ll just steamroll through it.
