What's cool about it:

  • Change Giana's personality to unlock her unique abilities - you'll need to control both sides to survive her dreams! As Giana changes, so does the world around her.
  • Giana’s dreamworlds leap off the screen with gorgeous 3D graphics that morph before your eyes.
  • 7 rich levels across several distinct worlds, each transforming into the two contrasting dreamworlds. Collecting gems and finding secret locations requires strategy and interchanging the two worlds.
  • 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. Hardcore and Über Hardcore modes also await players who are full masters of the game and quite possibly insane.

Overview:

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.

Minimum system requirements: Windows Vista / 7 / 8, Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.8 GHz / AMD Athlon II X2 2.8 GHz (Processor: Intel Core i5 2.66 GHz / AMD Phenom II X4 3.0 GHz or any Dual Core CPU recommended), 2 GB RAM (3 GB RAM recommended), Graphics: SM3.0 DX9.0c level hardware: Nvidia GeForce 6800, ATI X1800 XT or higher (Nvidia GeForce GTX 280, ATI HD 4800 or higher recommended), DirectX: 9.0 (DirectX:10 recommended), 3 GB HDD, Mouse, Keyboard, optional controller (Xbox 360® Controller for Windows recommended)

Still the same Giana Sisters and still great fun

The one thing I kept asking myself when playing Rise of the Owlverlord (RotO) was "Why is this a standalone title and not an expansion/DLC?". In terms of game mechanics and art style RotO does nothing different from Twisted Dreams (TD), the shifting backgrounds and bright colors are still good to look at and most of the music is the same with Machinae Supremecy returning for someread more new tracks (Pirate Rock is awesome). So what's new? Firstly, while the mechanics didn't change the way in which the designers uses the twisting mechanic did, you'll now need to twist the world to alter you trajectory when flying through a series of boost pads and to get past waves of projectiles.
A new difficulty has been added, Hard mode is for those who want something higher than the Normal (which is much easier thanks to a really high number of checkpoints), but don't want to stress themselves too much with the hardcore or uber-hardcore modes as you are not restricted to one life (I have a feeling this is why it is a standalone title, they didn't want to completely remake TD for Hard mode).
For a $5 pricetag Rise of the Owlverlord was well worth it, I've already sunk a few hours into the game and will sink a few m ore in the months to come.
