About the game:
ERSATZ is a speed focused, hardcore Action Platformer with Rhythm elements. Featuring a multiple genre Original Electronic Soundtrack which dynamically builds and changes based on your progression!
Run, Jump, Slam, Slide, Dash & Survive your way through 8 varied and increasingly intense levels, in multiple modes & playstyles, starring tricky level hazards and enemies and even tougher bosses.
Use the unique dash mechanics to move as fast as you can, trying to chase down that elusive 'S' rank. Learning the game is simple, mastering it is not...
It looks absolutely mental and the music does sound pretty damn good too. Hopefully this will be an interesting pick for our platformer fans.
