Punch left, punch right, swing a sword and…did my hair just turn into a massive fist? Hair Dash looks like good fun and it's available on Linux. It's not a finished game, currently in development by CleanCutGames but even so it already looks very impressive. The current development builds can be picked up cheaply DRM-free on, with a Steam release to come eventually.

Hair Dash is a fast paced action game in gorgeous, modern pixel art where you will need to use both your reflexes and your wits to succeed. Using a super intuitive control scheme (only two buttons!), the game will quickly show its depth as you progress.

Since you can only move by attacking enemies, you will soon be challenged with increasingly complex situations, where analyzing and strategizing is key!

In one of the next updates, they're going to introduce a fun sounding customization system. They say the feature they've built, allows you to change every single part of your character giving you a lot of freedom to get them looking exactly how you want.

Watching that trailer made me feel strangely cheery! The action looks like it does get quite intense, going to have to give this one a go at some-point.

You can find it right now on if you wish to pick it up.

Looks to be based on One Finger Death Punch and that's such a great game, but Windows only. It would be nice to see how it compares, and have a game like this for Linux.

I was trying to remember the name but I just couldn't quite get it, that's one of the most popular for sure.
