Data Dash won’t exactly challenge hardcore gamers, and the mechanics are a bit crude. The 8-bit retro style is cute (if unoriginal), though, and the easy gameplay makes it more likely that you’ll learn something rather than give up in frustration.
The biggest issue may simply be the tone. While the game is glib, the issues it’s dealing with are potentially serious — we doubt people will enjoy this if they’ve been targets for harassment or hate speech. Data Dash is more for newcomers and other innocents who want to wrap their heads around privacy concepts before they encounter the sobering reality.
