Acerca de este juego

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams - Rise of the Owlverlord is a blistering platformer with morphing worlds, featuring seven brand new levels, a new boss and new gripping tracks from Chris Hülsbeck and Machinae Supremacy!

Dash through tricky levels and transform the whole world at will in this fast-paced platformer. Rise of the Owlverlord combines graphics that pack a visual punch and tight controls with the challenge of retro era platforming. Fluidly morph between two dynamically different dream worlds to solve puzzles and combat grueling enemies and bosses. You’ll have to intertwine perky Giana's twirling jump with punky Giana's hammering dash attack to survive her dual nightmare.

Key Features


  • Powerful Abilities: Change Giana's personality to unleash 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!
  • More to Discover: There are 7 rich levels across several distinct worlds, each transforming into the two contrasting dreamworlds.
  • Gut-wrenching Hardcore Modes: Hardcore and Über Hardcore modes also await players who are full masters of the game and quite possibly insane.
  • Extras: Halloween-themed levels accessible from the start.

Challenging, but very satisfying. Don't expect a full-length game, though. Seven levels, but they're even more frustrating than in the original Twisted Dreams.

Rise of the Owlverlord is a decent, if very short, platforming experience that is probably best experienced after completing the main title, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams. There are seven levels which offer decent replay value if you're interested in exploring every hidden nook and cranny to locate all the crystals. If you liked the base Giana Sisters game, this is worth a look as well.

- is a method to banish boredom
- it has trading cards
- it has action
- it is indie
- it has a female protagonist

Enjoy!

Giana Sisters - Rise of the Owverlord

Un interesante DLC que agrega mecánicas nuevas a la idea del cambio de personaje.

En general me pareció bien llevado que continuara la dificultad de los últimos niveles del primero y la música es muy buena.
El jefe final fue mucho más fácil que el del 1.

Mi puntaje del juego es un 7.8/10

Había algo en Giana Sisters Twisted Dreams que no me acababa de gustar (además del jefe final más aburrido de la historia). Los niveles se iban volviendo monótonos y lentos de hacer. Les faltaba chispa. Sin embargo esta expansión ofrece un diseño muy bien pensado que deja en evidencia las carencias del primero. Siendo más de lo mismo, es muchísimo mejor. No jugaría el original dejando de lado a Rise of the Owlverlord, sino más bien al revés.

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams - Rise of the Owlverlord is a stand-alone expansion to the Giana Sisters game. It is basically a stand-alone chapter. It has all the same features of the larger game, including different difficulty settings, time attack, etc.

Right away, this one demands a bit more of you than the previous one did initially. Still, it isnt too terribly difficult and is just as enjoyable as the prior entry.

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams - Rise Of The Owlverlord is a very cute but short side-scrolling game. A single player experience at its core that gives you the ability to shift between 2 dimensions.

The thing that makes this game unique is that you control one of the twins at a time but can switch between the two at any given time and when you do switch, you remain in that same exact space but the level around you is what changes to illustrate shifting between dimensions. As you do this, certain objects you need may appear or paths may be open but with that enemies may become worse or the level may become more dangerous as well.

There are different difficulties for the game. The harder difficulty is quite the difference from the other difficulties as it totally revamps the levels in order to test your skills. This is a colorful and cheerful game with cute style and a decent soundtrack as well. Not bad for a quick game.

It's a great game for both kids and adults to play, the difficulties allow for all players to play the game and asjust the game according to their specific needs or playstyle. This game will be nice for anyone who favors the original Mario and Sonic games.

Pros
  • Switch between 2 worlds at any time
  • Soundtrack instantly changes to coincide with your switching between worlds
  • Game changes according to your difficulty
  • Full controller support

Cons
  • Short game isn't enough bang for the buck
  • No reason to go back to play once you finish
  • No unlockables

Final Thoughts:
It's got alot of heart for such a small package. The levels are short just like the games length. With spirit and color the game excels but there are alot if other options on the market that overshadow this.

La primera vez que lo jugué no me gustó nada, su jugabilidad me parecía enrevesada y el control tremendamente complicado y confuso: lo dejé tras cinco minutos, sin llegar a superar ni el tutorial. Como era de esperar, lo valoré negativamente.
Al cabo de un tiempo decidí darle otra oportunidad, su jugabilidad volvió a exasperarme, pero en esta ocasión me mantuve firme e insistí hasta que le cogí el tranquillo... y entonces el juego me enganchó.

Debo decir, por tanto, que cuando uno se acostumbra al manejo del personaje y domina las mecánicas de juego, Giana Sisters Rise of the Owlverlord es un título que encgancham, divierte y se muestra en todo su esplendor.

Por cierto, los gráficos y la música de diez.

Giana Sisters o La Fábula de como morir 1000 veces en cada nivel...

La calidad visual es buena, la música y el audio también... pero todo queda eclipsado por el nivel de dificultad, que hace que el juego tenga un nivel de entretenimiento cercano al nulo.

Lo primero que quiero comentar es que soy apasionado del género de las plataformas,me crié con Manic miner, los Sonic o Abu simbel profanation. Y he jugado y tengo casi todos los juegos de este género en casi todos los sistemas. Dicho esto,decir que la decepción que me llevé con este juego y sus expansiones, fue mayúscula. En el apartado audiovisual es muy bonito,entra por los ojos. Tiene unos juegos de luces e iluminación buenísimos. Pero es lo único bueno que tiene el juego. Creo que es el juego más vacio y con mayor sensación de tiempo perdido que he jugado jamás.........Una mecánica de juego tan repetitiva,absurda e insustancial que he jugado. ADemás pide un gran equipo para jugarlo, me compré la versión de Ps4 y va muy fluido y demás,pero sigue siendo igual de aburrido y tedioso..Los mismos enemigos una y otra vez, los mismos niveles y los mismos puzzles.....Un coñazo de juego. Comparado con los grandes del género, lease Nintendo, este maldito juego no le llega a la suela de los zapatos a cualquier Super mario Galaxy o cualquier otro.Y ya no hablo de tripleA sino de cualquier juego indie plataformero, por ejemplo Rescue the beagles, que es muchísimo más profundo, adictivo y divertido que esta bazofia videojueguil llamada Gianas Sister.........Muy mal juego, un 3

It is like a sandalone DLC, but with the same assets, music and level design as the main game.
+The only difference is that the game is shorter, in which compensates for the stupidly huge levels. (it actually makes the game better, each gimmick or combination of hazards is less repetitive, keeping overall fresh, if you didn't played the original game)

And a negative review because it suffers the same things as the main game, go check reviews on its store page.

A polished little standalone "expansion" to the original game. The levels are, in general, a bit shorter, for those who felt the original's dragged on, and the game gets more creative with its obstacles per stage. Each one is basically its own gauntlet and the last few levels will make you mix things up to win. All in all, a damn fine way to cap off this take on the game until whatever that Giana II project turns out to be.

Para Mario que lo mira por TV

“Lo único que necesitaba para entretenerme en mi tardía niñez era un TV color Grundig 14" –por el que llevo cinco días de luto–, un joystick Atari –el de palanca negra con un botón rojo–, una C=64 y el disquete de 5 1/4 número 17 –de los 125 que tenía mi colección–con The Great Giana Sisters (1987). Lo demás venía por añadidura, como mis vecinos que se colaban tardes enteras recorriendo los niveles una y otra vez, casi de memoria, hasta que alguno gritaba desde la plaza de enfrente para armar un picadito.” escribí hace un año en el número 11 de nuestra revista [IRROMPIBLES], a modo de introducción al review de Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams.

No encuentro mejores palabras para introducir esta nueva entrega de Giana Sisters. Por eso me repito. Como también se repite el juego. En este caso, en pequeña dosis. Apenas unas tres horas bastan para darlo vuelta. Al menos en modo fácil. ¿Pero qué más podemos pedir por menos de cinco dólares? ¿Es como una demo? Podríamos decir que lo es, comparado con el anterior. Aunque de más está decir que tiene todo lo necesario para sobresalir por sí mismo. Pero antes de entrar en detalle, hagamos un poco de historia.

Una suerte de expansion del Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams anterior y digo suerte porque, a pesar de ser solo 7 niveles, tienen mucho mas ingenio y calidad que los del anterior juego (uno de los puntos criticables a mi parecer del mismo, ya que solian parecer zonas conectadas que un todo como fase, y habian demasiados muy parecidos entre ellos). Tiene un precio acorde a lo que ofrece y ademas posee sus propios cromos y logros, cosa que lo hara mas interesante para muchos.

Aqui se nos muestra una pequeña historia como pretexto para dar paso a 6 niveles comunes y una batalla final, con una dificultad normal que es facil y accesible para cualquiera (vendria a ser el facil del anterior, pero se ve que esa palabra no les gusta ya que venden el juego como especialmente hardcore), y luego varias dificultades mayores que suponen reto y frustracion a raudales. Cada uno tiene donde elegir en funcion de su habilidad.

Aparte de todo eso, apenas hay diferencias con lo ya visto en Twisted Dreams: mismos graficos, musica similar o igual en muchos casos, la jugabilidad es la misma,... Se puede decir que no es un plataformas nivel Nintendo pero que en PC es una opcion mas que recomendable si te gusta el genero.

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!

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: 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.

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.

Hi People,

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is not the typical horizontal scrolling platform game with one button to move the character and another to jump. If you have played the ancestors, The Grat Giana Sisters and Giana Sisters DS you know I'm trying to tell you.

In this game you have the possibility to manipulate your dreams and transform the character when you want to be able to jump, glide, kill the enemies, etc. You can transform Giana in any moment and choose the prudent/demure Giana or the aggressive Giana depending the situation. It's important to emphasise that you can transform Giana ALWAYS you want over and over again. When you play with the "cute/shy/prudent" Giana you can only kill the enemies jumping over them like the typical platform. But, when you play with the "aggressive" Giana you can kill the enemies jumping over them or by means of the special attack consisting in transform Giana in a fire ball more or less like Sonic when rolls.

Moreover, another important thing is the stage of the game. Why? Because the stage have a little changes depending on the tranformation of Giana you have in this moment. For example, If you have the "Cute" Giana you will have in front of you a solid wall impossible to cross, but if you tranform the character and you play with the "aggressive" Giana this solid wall disappear allowing you to cross because you are playing in two different dreams (I think it is like a big puzzle).

To sum up:

Pros:
-Original platform game
-Excellent Stages (1080p 60Hz)
-Frenetic game in lots of situations with fast scenes.
-Excellent controls with Microsoft 360 pad.

Contras:
-Boring game depends on the level and could be repetitive.
-Easy. I want to enable the difficult level and I hope it will be better.
-You don't have "lifes" and you can die as many times as you want to.

In conclusion, YES i would recommend it to anyone!

Bye!
