Ce spun criticii

“The results look absolutely beautiful. It’s a puzzle platformer in which you can control not only the main character, but also the mood of the world you’re in.”
RockPaperShotgun

“Full of vibrant colors and accentuated animations, hearkening back to the days of truly inspired sidescrolling platformers.”
Destructoid

“The sheer amount of detail and work that went into the graphics do indicate to show you the sheer about of love for this fraaahhh-!”

Despre acest joc

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.

Now featuring a brand new competitive multiplayer arena racing mode!

The game sets up to 4 players against each other in local PvP, speed-running in an effort to push each other off the screen with the help of boosters and power-ups.

Smash through all obstacles! Run, dash, jump, head bonk, fire cannonballs and barrages of bullets onto your opponents. Switch the level layout on the fly as you rush through dreamgates. Collect gems to fill your speed booster and use your power-ups to knock out the other players.

Key Features


  • Powerful Abilities: 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.
  • Visual Punch:Giana’s dreamworlds leap off the screen with gorgeous 3D graphics that morph before your eyes.
  • Twisted Puzzles: As Giana changes, so does the world around her. Collecting gems and finding secret locations requires strategy and interchanging the two worlds.
  • Legendary Soundtrack: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 remixed “easy” mode for all levels and bosses. The remixed mode is a lot easier to survive than its standard mode. The “easy” difficulty for Giana should roughly correspond to the “normal” difficulty for casual platformer games.
  • Extras: Halloween-themed levels accessible from the start.

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is a very well done remake, with some modern gameplay dynamics that will appeal the player. It's frenetic, it's hard, it's indie and it's a good platform game!

Frustrating. That's the best word to describe Giana Sisters with. I'm no stranger to difficult platformers (Super Meat Boy is one of my favorite games of all time), but this game just doesn't do it for me. The levels are too long, and the checkpoints too few - you end up replaying large sections over and over again because of cheap deaths. This game's been sitting in my backlog for almost 2 years, playing it off and on, because I have to willfully force myself to finish it. The transformation mechanic is neat, the graphics are good, but the level design is filled with leaps of faith, enemies hiding in blind spots, and is just generally not fun to play.

Very challenging, but fun. Gorgeous graphics and amazing music by the great Machinae Supremacy makes this an entertaining journey to blast through. The platforming and mechanics are rather simple, but enjoyable in its way. Switching and alternating between the 2 different worlds is a fun concept, and works really well into this game.

I recommend this game to platform players, as this ... well, literally has a twist to it.

So I've owned this game for a year and a half now. Over the course of that time I've only had the heart to play a few hours, on and off through about a dozen or so times. I am a ♥♥♥♥ for platformers, but Giana Sisters is a bore, and simply not enjoyable. It took me a long time to put my finger on it, and I'll lay out my problems with it, here, in case anyone is reading this.
1.)The graphics are VERY poorly optimized. I have a fairly decent rig, and even at 1280x720 the framerate and textures are abysmal for me.
2.)The controls feel really bad. A good game (like Mario, or Super Meat Boy) makes you feel like death is your fault for a lack of skill. Half my deaths in Giana Sisters feel like it's the controls fault. It's hard to describe, but you know it when you play it.
3.) The collect-a-thon of gems. It seems entirely pointless. I had absolutely no incentive to explore and collect gems. If they were used for something (lives, or a minimum to move on to the next level), but as it stands, unless you're nuts about collecting stuff, gems are useless. Not to mention, it doesn't fit thematically ... you're off to rescue your sister, so why waste your time getting money and shiz?
4.) The story is generic and boring, but that's just opinion.
5.) The music is so vapid, and trying too hard to be grandiose, and becomes generic very quick.
6.) There are about 6 lame enemy types in the whole game. *yawn*

I dunno ... I'm boring myself just thinking about it. Everything this game does, Super Mario Bros. 3, and dozens and dozens of other games do better, so go get those.
Good luck.

Персональный рейтинг - 7 из 10

Есть две новости: хорошая и плохая. С какой начать? Логичнее начать сначала с плохой, хорошая потом сгладит. Так вот, во время моего первого знакомства с Giana Sisters она мне жутко не понравилась! Скучная, однообразная, где-то чересчур сложная, без внятного сюжета и повествования. Хорошая новость: это было полтора года назад, и не так давно я решил освежить воспоминания, дабы потом как следует отругать игру, попутно поупражнявшись в злословии! Но то ли с игрой, то ли со мной произошла метаморфоза, и мои теперешние впечатления несколько отличаются от тогдашних.

Самое удивительное, что игра действительно местами невероятно сложная, порой однообразная, а иногда даже навевает скуку. Возможно, дело в том, что любой платформер, являясь по сути достаточно стремительным по темпу игры жанром, не терпит излишней спешки. Я опросил 100 случайных платформеров, которых встретил на улице и 90 из них ответили мне: "Не стоит никогда никуда спешить без необходимости, если не хочешь, чтобы игра наскучила раньше срока". Согласитесь, в этом есть разумное зерно.

Да, игра порой безумно сложна, потому не рассчитывайте одолеть ее с наскока, ничего не выйдет. Уровни похожи друг на друга поскольку выстроены, словно однотипный паззл, из одних и тех же кусочков. Да и навигация по этапам сильно затруднена, разработчики зачем-то заставили уровни указателями, которые вместо того, чтобы ориентировать наоборот, сбивают с толку!

Но все искупает отличная механика. Преодолеть ров с острыми как бритва шипами; пересечь холл, заполненный ловушками; найти секретную область; победить босса. Здесь есть все, что вы хотите видеть в платформере. Не забываем про отличный саундтрек, динамично меняющийся в зависимости от того, какой героиней мы управляем в данный момент. Апологеты хардкора могут опробовать себя в режимах БЕЗ чекпойнтов (читай, без сохранений), но по мне это сродни самоистязанию. Говорят, нашелся кто-то, кто сумел пройти все уровни игры, не погибнув ни разу! Хотел бы я посмотреть на этого несчастного человека...

Попробуйте и вы. Но помните - спешка хороша только при ловле блох.

Personal rating - 7 out of 10

I got 2 news for you - good and bad. Which one I should start from? Guess, starting from the bad one would be wiser, because the good one will soften the final effect. So, after my first Giana Sisters run I was left with a poor impression. The game seemed tedious, boring, frustratingly difficult at times... in short, pretty dull. So I decided to make it one more time so I could spew in my anger and write a bad review! I don't know what exactly happened to the game or what happened to me, but this time I enjoyed the process!

Thing is, the game is really that difficult, sometimes monotonous, sometimes boring. Maybe the problem is that every platformer, being a rather fast-paced genre in terms of gameplay still requires some patience. I addressed a question to 100 random platformers I'd met on the street and 90 of them answered: "Do not speed things up too much if you don't want the game to become boring too soon". It makes sense.

Yes, the game is harsh, so do not expect it to be completed it one go, you will fail. Levels seem quite repetitive, because most part of them are made out of the same pieces tossed together. Besides, developers have rather strange view on navigation. Levels are filled with pointers and arrows which basically confuse more than provide help.

But! It's got mechanics that overweighs everything. Say, cross the hole with spikes; fight through a hall with enemies and traps; find a secret area or deal with a tough boss. Giana Sisters got it all what you might fancy in your mind when being asked a question "What should a platformer have?" Add a beautifully written soundtrack to the mix, plus Hardcore game mods for true perfectionists. One of those mods requires a player to complete the game in one go, with no checkpoints! I heard about a guy who could do it. Poor fellow, wish I could see him...

Try it and remember - do not rush.

Good visuals, great music. An unfair description would be "It's the Sonic version of Trine." but a lot of harder. I really liked the dual polarity mode, visuals and music change without altering the melody. Play with a controller.

A fun platformer that can be as easy or hardcore as you want it. The art is amazing (just look at the trailer), and the switching between sisters mechanic is fun and fresh. There are gems to collect, but I quickly gave up on trying to get every one (some levels have over 700 gems). I played in easy mode, which had more frequent checkpoints and easier boss battles. This was perfect for me, as it still provided satisfying platforming.

Although my playtime is small this game is a breath of fresh air for all platformers with the multi-world scheme and also a great devlopment from the first game. Graphics and music are both outstanding.

This game is absolutely gorgeous. It has great platforming elements where you switch between two sisters, one being subtle and cute in her ways and the other taking a more hands-on approach and more punk-ish. Frustratingly hard at many times (The "easy" mode is the same level of difficulty as other games in "normal" mode), but one can't deny its charm. Lots of replayability if you consider yourself a completionist. The controls can get iffy at times (mostly because you press a button and don't land exactly where you want, causing you to die) but thankfully there are enough checkpoints in the levels to compensate for that. Highly recommended!

Have you ever wanted to experience Halloween or Christmas in a videogame? Yes? No? Maybe so? Well, this game lets you slide around Christmas Village and all those nasty woods and hollows. True, it's only about six special levels of the game, but it sure is a fun and unique addition to the game. I'm surprised the industry hasn't manufactured more Christmas themed games after all these years.

Giana Sisters is one of these games whose beauty lies in their ridiculus difficulty level. Do not even try without a pad.

Giana is a game of three tricks: spinning slowfall (as yellow) fireball jump (as red) and colour switching (twists the world so that some platforms become accessible or traps become disabled). All you need is to master the proper usage of proper trick in proper place and proper time. There is not healthbar. First mistake and Giana is dead (unless she has a shield gem, two mistakes in this case), You are going to die, a lot. Fortunaltely at lower difficulties, there are 'infinite lives' and quite frequent checkpoints. Hardcore is one live per level (no checkpoints). Uber hardcore is one live per the game (death = restart from level 1),

Giana looks somehow childlish, enemies and the environment look more funny then scary, even in the Yellow's Nightmare. The locations are rather limited: forrest, cave, castle, underwater. Approx 24 levels to go (plus bonus levels), Later they can can take several hours per level to complete (depends on your symbioss with the pad). Marvelous gallery can be unlocked.

Do not play, if You:
* don't like to die (a lot)
* don't like childish graphics

Do play, if:
* love challenges

Giana Sisters is a great game. some controls issues and 1 foot platforms are its downside. but in overall it's a great game and you can have lots of fun playing it. of course you'll die like hell and be really, really frustrated sometimes because of the issues I mentioned but if you have patient you'll manage to finish it.

I wanted to like this game. The graphical style is nice, the dual world mechanic with 2 playable characters you can switch out at any time is a good feature but the gameplay is just dull.

My biggest frustration with it by far is that the levels are too long. They are not interesting enough to play through and the 2 types of enemies I encountered in the first 6 levels are brainless jump pads. To fill out the unnecessarily large levels you have hundreds of gems to collect, they are everywhere and as I’m not someone that enjoys heavy lashings of collectibles in games this just added to the tedium.
Add in a poor checkpoint system and I gave up by the end of the first world (6 levels in). Not because I found it too hard, I just found it boring.

Half the level size, shrink the collectibles down to a handful (or keep the hundreds of gems but add something else more meaningful to collect in much smaller numbers) and give the enemies more character (from my experience of the first world that I played). That in my opinion would give you a tighter, more enjoyable experience.

For reference I would say Super Mario World is the best 2D platformer ever made. Meatboy and the rayman Origins are right up there too. I bring this up because as much as I loved Rayman Legends, the games “more is better” style with the lums was very off putting to me. If it didn’t bother you there it probably won’t bother you here.

A boring platformer that boils down to find all the crystals while jumpng. If thats your type of game id still avoid it unless you want some practice bug hunting cuz this sucker is full of them. I managed to reach stage 1-3 after 2 game crashes and 3 level restarts (from my character getting stuck in a wall or half-way thru a floor) not to mention the similar problems the enemies have. Laughed several times at a bird in siezures stuck on a slightly up-tilting platform.
Bottom line - I'd be annoyed if Id payed money for it but since I got it in a humble bundle with some games I really wanted I'm letting it run in the background so I can sell the cards in the market place and some good can come from this complete turd of a game. 1* out of 5*

Got this on a Humble Bundle a while back, just because it happened to be on there with other titles. So about a year later I decided to load it up and see if it was worth trying out. Sadly I couldn't stand the game past level two, so I'll just give my first impressions of the game.

Right off the bat, the controls didn't feel too great. Running and jumping feels really sluggish and floaty (not that floaty jumps are bad, it's just that they don't feel right in this game). The swirl glide move was okay, and the attack dash wasn't my cup of tea at all, simply due to the fact that it acts like a homing attack ala recent Sonic the Hedgehog games, yet can cause you to ram into enemies and die because the attack stops just before it connects if you aren't close enough. While jumping on enemies can be a more viable strategy, it still doesn't feel right due to the awkward jump physics.

Probably the most GS:TD has going for it is the fairly decent looking environments, music, and concept of switching between dimensions/worlds on the fly to change the level layout. But aside from that, there isn't much else to say. The controls don't feel as responsive as a 2D platformer should, the entire premise is kind of boring (sure, collecting items is almost a platformer must, but collecting the gems really didn't feel fun), and to pour salt into the wound, the game took somewhere between 5 to 10 minutes after I completed the second level just to return to the level select screen. I'd look elsewhere for a 2D platformer.
