Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is a blistering hardcore platformer with contrasting worlds. Warp Giana’s vivid dreams to alter your abilities and destroy the twisted creatures lurking within. Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams combines the challenge of retro era platforming with graphics that pack a visual punch and tight controls.
Fluidly morph between two dynamically different dream worlds to solve puzzles and combat grueling enemies. Players will have to intertwine sweet Giana's twirling jump attack with Punk Giana's hammering dash attack to survive the dualling dimensions.
Change Giana's personality to unlock her unique abilities - you'll need to control both sides to survive her dreams!
Intuitive Controls and Smooth Gameplay:
Master the tight knit controls to defeat the cunning trials ahead.
Giana’s dreamworlds leap off the screen with gorgeous 3D graphics that morph before your eyes.
As Giana changes, so does the world around her. Collecting gems and finding secret locations requires strategy and interchanging the two worlds.
Each dream layer has its own music style. Experience a dual crossfading soundtrack by Chris Hülsbeck and Machinae Supremacy!
Explore and Discover:
There are 23 rich levels across 3 distinct worlds, each transforming into the two contrasting dreamworlds.
Epic Boss Battles:
Take on gigantic creatures dredged from the depths of Giana’s most terrifying nightmares. Each unique boss has only one thing in common with the others – they’re utterly brutal!
Gut-wrenching Hardcore Modes:
Hardcore and Über Hardcore modes also await players who are full masters of the game and quite possibly insane.
A good surpriseLekes | Feb. 14, 2013 | See all Lekes's reviews »
What a pleasant surprise! I was fully expecting a run-of-the-mill, neither-here-or-there indie platformer, but I was absolutely blown away (and I'm a hard one to please too). The controls are incredibly solid, the gameplay is fun, the dual worlds mechanic doesn't become a tiresome gimmick, the difficulty is just right... the bosses will make you gouge your eyes out at times... which makes it so much more fun! All in all, congratulations to the dev team on this gem. The game is especially a treat if you've played the original Giana Sisters in 25 years ago, the musical score will bring you more than a little nostalgia.
Fresh and innovative.fable2 | Jan. 19, 2013 | See all fable2's reviews »
A new star is born in the platformer genre with great gameplay, visuals and level design.The controls are great with a gamepad. The soundtrack is awesome, it took me some minutes to be comfortable with the music switch, but at the end it's so great. It's been a while I haven't seen a fast paced platformer of this quality on PC, and the price is very low. The first levels are very easy, but the difficulty grows rapidly.The boss fights are epic, the last one very challenging. More you progress in the game better and longer the levels are. The last world of the game is for sure the most interesting. It's not so common that games are more and more fun during level progression. There's also replayability with the different game modes (score attack, hardcore,uberhardcore....) The game has nothing to do anymore with the original mario clone I played when I was young on amiga, it's fresh and innovative I want more of those kind of games,really great job. Waiting for a dlc or a sequel.
It's decent, but too repetitive.PM_DMNKLR | Jan. 18, 2013 | See all PM_DMNKLR's reviews »
I recently checked this game out as it looked to be very intriguing and cool at first. I enjoyed playing it for roughly a good 10 minutes and then I quickly got both bored and aggravated with it. The challenging portions are really well done, the graphics are incredible for it being a platformer (reminds me a LOT of Playstation 1 platformer games, but with HD graphics enhancements) and the music is nice as well.
The downsides are that it's way too repetitive & the music is the same throughout (eventually makes one feel as though they're stuck in an elevator). If you can get a great discount deal on it, it may be worth it, however even still it may not be worth it for some people. I personally wouldn't even toss $5 USD at it to be honest.
Great game with awesome musictixepower | Dec. 25, 2012 | See all tixepower's reviews »
This platformer is pretty, challenging and has some awesome music from Sweden!
If you like platformers and melodic metal music, this game is for you! The swedish band that made this awesome mix of good and evil music is called Machinae Supremacy.
It's hard to describe soundtrack of this game but it's a true music art unlike any other music used in a game before.
Good potential, but lack it.Angeluzian | Dec. 23, 2012 | See all Angeluzian's reviews »
Giana sisters twisted dream is a game that "changes" the world when you switch sister. It's a nice idea, but it can get quite annoying that you have to switch them and use them exactly then. I would like more multiple solutions and harder platforming. Overall it's a dull game in my opinion, but I like the graphics. If you do like platforming, this may be for you.
