AlterEgo: DreamWalker is the sequel to the Windows Phone game AlterEgo. DreamWalker shares the retro appearance of the original and is a challenging puzzle oriented platform game.
DreamWalker has you navigating through a series of platform levels full of obstacles and monsters to collect pixels. You have a ghost image that mirrors your movements that you can swap places with to get through the levels.
Game play is simple, yet challenging and the retro graphics reminds me of the old Atari or Commodore 64 days. AlterEgo: DreamWalker is a nice continuation of the original game.
The main menu of DreamWalker has options to start the game, access the gaming options, and view the developer's credits. Gaming options cover sound, music and vibration controls.
AlterEgo: DreamWalker has thirty-five levels of play that progressively get more challenging. The goal of each level is to collect the jumping pixels (purplish bouncing dashes) and make it to the exit portal. Along the way monsters will try to take you out and various obstacles have to be navigated around.
The game controls run across the bottom of the screen and include a movement joystick in the left corner, a red jump button in the far right and your switch button sits next to the jump button. Your ghost or phantom images mirrors your moves and as you move along the platform level, you can switch places with the phantom to get around obstacles. Switches are limited so you'll have to plan your moves carefully.
Once you collect all the pixels a portal will appear (greenish light) that will advance you to the next level.
The only downside to DreamWalker is that you only have one life. This can be a little bit of pain and it would be nice to have a few lives to give before conceding to defeat. It's not a deal breaker but I think it would help the game.
AlterEgo: DreamWalker is a good choice for those looking for a challenging platform game or for those who find the pixilated, retro graphics appealing. There is a free trial version to let you try things out with the full version of AlterEgo: DreamWalker running $1.29.
