Dirk Gets A Dashing Update, 8 New Levels To Play

Lovers of the marvellous Dirk Dashing 2: E.V.I.L Eye will be pleased to hear that another update is now available for you to check out in your own time. The 0.7 update adds 8 new levels with a refined focus on puzzle gameplay and the use of gadgets and stealth. This update is actually the third part of the five part story and is entitled ‘The Sinister Skyscraper’; we’re yet to meet one of this planet’s biggest phallic objects that wasn’t sinister. A summary lies below for the curious:


“Dirk must make his way up the Conquertech headquarters skyscraper to eavesdrop on a secret meeting, but he has no idea what’s waiting for him at the top…”


We also have a new gadget to get excited about, the night time stalker’s favourite tool, night vision goggles! The developer notes that while they have been integrated into this third part of the game adequately, they are useless in the previous parts at the moment. Time will change that however.


“The night vision goggles gives Dirk a distinct tactical advantage, because guards and E.V.I.L agents cannot see him in the dark. So if you turn out the lights and equip a set of night vision goggles, you can tip-toe past enemies unseen and unheard, or knock them out before they ever know you’re there. This is very helpful when dealing with more powerful enemies like Bombshelle or the Ninja. Many of the new levels have light switches scattered about so you can turn lights on or off at will.”


You can download a demo of this updated version of Dirk Dashing 2, or better yet, you can pre-order the full game for Windows, Mac and Linux. More information on Dirk Dashing 2 can be found over at the IndieDB page.
