  • DEXTER DASH is an side-scrolling runner, jumper, and flyer with inspiration from Geometry Dash and Flappy Bird.

How to Play

  • The player moves from left to right, and sometimes the other way. While moving, the player must not hit the sides of the wall, any spikes, or fall into voids.
  • The player can only jump and is moved automatically sideways by the computer.
  • At the end of a level, the player can go through the portal and be transported to the next planet.
  • Score is based on distance traveled through the planet.
