Hard platformer with amazing music.

Mekh | Sept. 26, 2013 | Review of Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams – Rise of the Owlverlord

This DLC added 7 new fun and challenging levels - it is just as good as the main game, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams but with a few new game mechanics added to spice to gameplay up a bit.

The controls are super tight and very responsive, I had no issues at all with my wired Xbox 360 controller during my playthrough of the game. This game is also known for being a very hard platformer, but there is Easy Mode if you don't want to struggle as much.

I recommend playing it on Hard right from the start however if you aren't new to platformers. (and if you are feel that is too easy, give Hardcore or Überhardcore a try after finishing the game)

The new soundtrack in this DLC is amazing, the two main songs for each level blends together perfectly when you switch between the Punk and Cute version of Giana.

My last thoughts: This game is very much worth your money if you really enjoy tough platformers, it delivers what it set out to do and gives you an enjoyable experience. The only downside for me personally is that it was only 7 levels, so you'll get through them quite fast if you'll know what you're doing.

Tough but fun platformer

Mekh | Sept. 19, 2013 | Review of They Bleed Pixels

This game is brutal at times, a really tough platformer with a bit of combat that actually is quite enjoyable in small doses. The controls for this game are really tight, I used a 360 controller and didn't run into any issues at all during my time playing - the character moved like I told her to. I didn't try it with a keyboard at all so I can't say anything about that.

The only complaint I have is that wall jumping was tricky to master, more specifically dropping from a wall instead of jumping makes you unable to double jump afterwards. But after a few hours of practice I got used to it and it didn't bother me so much anymore.

Overall I'd say that if you enjoy tough platformers then this one won't disappoint.
