"A solid interpretation of the overlooked cult classic. Music by Machinae Supremacy is the highlight, otherwise just a solid platformer."

About This Game

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 an impressively fun and well crafted platforming game. It has the perfect balance between precision platforming and forgiving level design that it doesn't feel like the game is overly difficult just to frustrate you. It also has spectacular graphics and the switching mechanic is well done.

You may think that the game shows all of its mechanics at the beginning of the game, but you would be wrong. There is plenty of different ideas executed to keep the gameplay from being boring.

It also has a great amount of exploration in the levels that will keep you hunting for more and more gems.

Oh and collecting gems is one of the most satisfying experiences in this game. Combined with a great soundtrack, heart-warming characters and lots of great levels, Giana Sisters will have you coming back again and again. Just a fair warning, this is still a very difficult platforming game and unless you really like platformers,
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=291332433
you will get frustrated by its difficulty early on. It isn't Super Meat Boy levels of hard but it comes within striking distance of that game. The graphics are rather demanding too so you may have to turn them down. But it is a great game to play and one of my favorite platformers.

Buy it, play it, love it; you can thank me later.

Challenging and fun platformer game with gorgeous graphics and amazing music.Excellent level design.I really love the idea of shifting between two personas which have different abilities and it works surprisingly well with different dream world.It has a good replay value especially with the new multiplayer racing mode.Highly recommended for platformer fans.
