I liked it. It feels great to wipe out a lot of enemies with a quick succession of dashes. It's great when a simple mechanic allows for such "combos" to occur naturally (as opposed to being added as separate system).

There's a bug when you restart the game where enemies don't always completely go away and become spooky ghosts, so you may want to refresh the page when you die instead.
