À propos de ce jeu

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams - Rise of the Owlverlord est un jeu de plateforme intense avec deux mondes parallèles qui peuvent être permutés à volonté. Sept niveaux flambants neufs, un nouveau boss et de nouvelles pistes musicales par Chris Hülsbeck and Machinae Supremacy attendent le joueur.

Foncez à travers des niveaux retors et transformez les à volonté. Rise of the Owlverlord allie des graphismes impressionnants avec un effet de morphing saisissant à une maniabilité exemplaire et un challenge relevé à la façon des jeux de plateforme d’antan. Passez avec fluidité d’un monde à l’autre afin de déjouer les nombreux pièges et ennemis. Vous devrez combiner sans relâche le saut en toupie de Giana blonde avec le pilonnage enflammé de Giana rousse afin de survivre à ce cauchemar à deux faces.

Points forts:


  • De puissantes capacités : Changez la personnalité de Giana afin de profiter de ses capacités respectives - vous allez avoir besoin de maîtriser ses deux côtés pour survivre à ses rêves !
  • Une maniabilité intuitive et une jouabilité fluide : Maîtrisez les enchainements avec habileté et astuce pour déjouer les épreuves qui vous attendent.
  • Des graphismes époustouflants : Les rêveries de Giana jaillissent de l’écran et se transforment sous vos yeux.
  • Des énigmes tordues : Tout comme Giana, le monde qui l’entoure se transforme simultanément, mettant vos réflexes à rude épreuve.
  • Une double bande-son : Chaque face du rêve possède son propre style musical. Les musiques du cultissime Chris Hülsbeck se mélangent aux riffs endiablés de Machinae Supremacy en temps réel !
  • Encore plus de secrets : Sept niveaux énormes prennent place dans de tout nouveaux environnements transformables.
  • Des défis monstrueux : Les modes Hardcore et Super Hardcore attendent les joueurs les plus expérimentés ou les plus fous.

[See the English version below]

Две веселые сеструшки-попрыгушки опять попали в переплет. В оригинальной игре им не давал прохода какой-то не то динозавр не то дракон, что выступал в качестве финального босса и успел к этому моменту уничтожить миллионы нервных клеток игроков по той простой причине, что был невероятно труден в уничтожении. На его место пришла не то сова, не то филин с такими же, впрочем, отнюдь не самыми добрыми намерениями. Враги новые - герои старые. Равно как и игровой процесс, он не изменился ни на йоту.

Если коротко описать этот небольшой аддон к Giana Sisters, то выражение "хорошо, но мало" описывает его с лихвой. Действительно, пол-дюжины уровней короткой мини-кампании пролетают за один вечер. Если вы у нас перфекционист и вознамерились пройти все уровни с максимальным рейтингом или достаточно храбры и усидчивы, чтобы одолеть игру в дополнительных усложненных режимах, то можете смело умножить потраченное время втрое. Согласно рейтингу Стима, таких смельчаков нашлось суть более одного процента.

Отличий от оригинальной игры, прямо скажем, кот наплакал. Пара новых вражин, перерисованные задники да 2, от силы 3, новых композиции. Особенно отмечу новые бекграунды, они наконец-то стали действительно радовать глаз в отличие от своих коллег из оригинальной игры, что смотрелись довольно блекло.

Полное отсутствие сюжета и нехватка новизны искупается отличным дизайном уровней, который по-прежнему держит марку. Тяжелый саундтрек от суровых скандинавов из Machine Supremacy задает ритм, а сложность все также задрана до предела. Считаю, что этого достаточно для скромного аддона к не самому плохому платформеру на этой планете.
__________

Two funny-looking sisters who're always eager for new adventures have found themselves in another devious trap. Dinosaur mastermind from original game who earned his fame not only for being a final boss but also for annihilating millions of nerve cells by posing a formiddable threat during the final showdown. Yes, he was extremely difficult to take down. So, he stepped from his throne and a big bad owl has taken it in this new chapter. Well, doesn't matter though, the game has no plot whatsoever...

In order to sum it all up, a phrase "good, but too short" would fit just perfectly. 7 levels won't take you longer but one evening to complete them. Well, unless you are a perfectionist hero who wants to earn the best rating and complete the levels all over again in challenging modes. In this case, multiply your gaming time by 3.

There's not that much of a difference between this addon and original game. Two, maybe three new enemies, redrawn backgrounds and a couple of new musical themes. New backgrounds look especialy distinctive in contrast to original ones, which seemed rather dull and lackluster.

No plot and a lack of new content don't hurt that much due to tremendous level design, heavy soundtrack from scandinavian band Machine Supremacy and high unforgiving difficulty. I think it's enough for a short addon for a decent platformer.

Basically this game is DLC for the core game, and it is really hard to recommend for two reasons.
One: It is a poorly optimized game.
Two: The game physics need a lot of work. For example the hit detection is off, you may or not hit the target, you may even orbit around the target for a second instead when you dash towards them. Jumping feels odd, a high jump may land you where you want one out of five tries.

The game itself is really short, and it is on the price range of at least 5 better platforming games so I cannot recommend it. There is simply not enough content, and the poorly optmized engine makes it impossible to play this game on low end systems that should not have any trouble running it.

I am not a big fan of platformer games in general, but I found this game quite fun! It has good difficulty, smooth controls and gameplay (reminded me a lot of the adventure mode, Subspace Emissary, in Super Smash Bros. Brawl), and plenty of gorgeous levels to keep you busy. Not to mention an awesome soundtrack! Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams - Rise of the Owlverlord is a very solid game and is worth every penny in my honest opinion.

Comptez environ 3 heures pour boucler une première fois le jeu et les deux niveaux bonus. Il s'agit là d'une extension en stand-alone de l'indispensable Twisted Dreams, référence du jeu de plateforme (cf ma précédente recommandation). Le contenu peut paraitre maigre mais c'est sans compter sur les modes de jeu à débloquer, le mode difficile, les secrets à trouver, et tout le scoring. Autant dire que les 3 heures initiales peuvent très rapidement se multiplier si on adhère à l'univers, au gameplay très bien construit ainsi qu'au level design qui ne lassera pas les adeptes de scoring.

Après un épisode décevant, voila qu'arrive son DLC. Un DLC pourtant pauvre en contenu car il garde tout ce que le 1er possédait mais en rajoutant deux trois décors et musique en + !
Seul la difficulté sera revue à la baisse suite aux critique des joueurs.
Du travail baclé !

After completing literally everything this game has to offer, Hard difficulty,Hardcore Mode, Über Hardcore Mode, Time Attack, Score Attack and all Achievements I can safely say that this is a really fun platformer.

This is a stand-alone expansion / DLC that adds 7 levels and does not require the base game to be able to play.

I would really recommend starting off on hard difficulty, normal mode just makes the levels so much easier that it's barely a challenge. Completing hard difficulty took me around 3-4 hours the first time playing, so the game is fairly short if you don't give all the other game modes a try (took me around 15~ hours to complete the game 100%)

The controls are solid for this game, I didn't mess up once because of bad controls or anything like that, Giana moved where I wanted her to, worth noting that I used an Xbox 360 controller to play through the game, can't say how the keyboard controls are as I didn't try them.

Now the soundtrack for this game, and the base game is fantastic. The Cute / Punk version of every song blends together perfectly when you switch between the two different versions of Giana.

This is NOT an easy game, you're gonna have to restart over and over again, be prepared.

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is without a doubt one of the best things to come out of the great retro platformer deluge, which began somewhere around the release of Super Meat Boy. It was stunning to look at, a joy to play, and managed to feel fresh yet familiar at the same time. As with any good thing fans are bound to want more, and Black Forest Games has now delivered just that with Rise of the Owlverlord; a standalone expansion that in many ways is even better than the game which spawned it!

If you've played Twisted Dreams (and you definitely should have before jumping into Owlverlord), you should know what you're getting into here; a tightly knit platformer with a neat world shifting mechanic, that controls like a charm and features an outstanding soundtrack. Owlverlord doesn't mess with this formula at all, but reworks it into a smaller more focused experience that fixes nearly all of my complaints of the original and then some.

While I enjoyed Twisted Dreams a lot, variety was not its strong suit and I quickly found myself fatigued of it after only a few level, forcing me to space it out of many short sessions to keep it from completely wearing out its welcome. I never felt this with Owlverlord. While there are far fewer levels this time (7, if you include the boss fight at the end), the upside of this is that each is longer and more uniquely designed than those found in the original game, with some of, if not the best level designs the series has seen to date! It took me weeks to finish the original game, but I tore through Owlverlord like a starving dog who just found a box of bacon, and was left eager for more (despite previously thinking I had had more than my fill of the series after the first game).

If you enjoyed Twisted Dreams there is absolutely no reason you should hesitate to pick up Rise of the Owlverlord! It's a shorter game, but a better one in every regard (which is saying something as the original was fantastic as well) that heightens the challenge, fine tunes the gameplay, and somehow manages to deliver and even more ridiculously awesome soundtrack than last time (Machinae Supremacy has completely outdone themselves yet again)! If you have yet to play Twisted Dreams you are missing out on one the best modern platformers we have, a fact Owlverlord only further solidifies. Black Forest Games have continued to impress me more than I would have expected from such humble Kickstarter beginnings, and now have me wishfully hoping a true Giana Sisters 2 is on the horizon.

Don't delay, there's an Owlverlord to topple!

Personal rating: 8/10

Giana Sisters - Twisted Dreams: Rise of the Owlverlord
This is the standalone expansion to Giana Sisters - Twisted Dreams.

About the game
Much like its core game, the Rise of the Owlverlord is fun, creative and difficult. The game forces the player to shift between "cute" and "punk" Giana constantly in order to make progress or survive traps even more than the original game. Traps are always there making the player balance out cleverness and reflexes, and enemies are strategically put most of times to aid reaching a secret area or merely to pose an extra challenge.

Twisting Dreams again
Swapping between cute and punk Giana is a must here and the game will never let you forget about this even once. Swapping can be done between a specific key assigned to it or by using the Fireball Roll (which automatically swaps to punk Giana) or twirling (which swaps to cute Giana). At first it may seem simple, but the game will have creative ways to spice up things as levels goes by.

Running and jumping is very precise as you'd expect (and want) in a platformer, the controls feels great and runs smoothly at all times.

Learning curve: STEEP
Unlike the core game Rise of the Owlverlord holds no punches and throws everything it can as soon you decide to play. Mercifully there is a "Normal" mode which considerably ramps down the difficulty inserting safe places between death traps and removing certain gimmicks that would require split second reaction to bypass.

However as soon you decide to pick "Hard" mode you're in for a rough ride as the game will not hold your hand even for the first second of the first level, but playing at hard difficulty will allow you to earn rank stars and will unlock the finished level for Time Attack and Score Attack mode.

Not enough yet?
For those seeking for more challenge the game still have the Hardcore difficulty (which removes every checkpoint) and the Über Hardcore (which gives you one, single life for the entire game).

Final considerations
Rise of the Owlverlord follows just as well the core game and is more than a "more of the same" expansion, it is a fine platformer with beautiful graphics, amazing controls and brutally difficult if you are not used to platformers.

I'd not say it's a must-buy, but Rise of the Owlverlord is definately a good purchase, if you don't mind difficult games. With plenty of replayability and a great soundtrack, I've found this to be a great addition to my library.

This expansion set is so cheap it's worth it just for the soundtrack, which is, more from Chris Hülsbeck.

Add in 7 fun levels and 7 different game modes to play with, yeah, it's worth it.

This game picks up where the original left off, and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna fall off every other game to ride this one to the end. 10/10 Probably GotY material and is definately chalk full of solid gameplay you come to expect from AAA titles,

IF you avoid this game, you must enjoy avoiding fun...

I love this game! The art makes it a wonderful place to spend some time. Add to that the fun twisting-musical score and you are instantly transported into a world that is worth investing some time in. And, do plan on investing some time because make not mistake, this is a challenging game! As a fan of the old-style Sonic games, I was in platformer heaven! The price is extremely reasonable, and that gameplay itself is responsive, logical and, most importantly, fun! I recommended it!

Consider this an expansion pack, not a full-fledged title. Gameplay remains exactly the same, so look at my old review if you want a rundown of it.

Otherwise, if you liked the first one I suggest purchasing this as well. There are 10 levels, but they're much longer than before. The music's new, so there's no rehashing there.

There's really not much to say that I didn't already say in my review of the first title. It's a comptetent indie platformer that doesn't do what others do and go for the 'retro' 8-bit look which is getting aggrivating. The music's great; platforming is more original than anything Nintendo has churned out in close to a decade; difficulty isn't some stupid ♥♥♥ 'Super Meat Boy' levels of retardation. Just ♥♥♥♥ing buy it already.

Fans of the original Giana Sisters will find more of what they loved from the first game, and newcomers can ease into the series with the relaxed difficulty setting. The Giana Sisters continues to be one of this generation’s best platforming experiences.Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams - Rise of the Owlverlord is a good stand-alone expansion pack, with well designed levels that fix some of the flaws of the first game.The excellent "twist" mechanics are quite the same, the difficulty is more balanced and we have 6 new levels and 1 boss for a rather small price.Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams – Rise of the Owlverlord is a great game, especially for those looking for a platformer to challenge their reflexes.
