DescriptionGiana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is the successor of the 1987 The Great Giana Sisters and a a sequel to the 2009 re-imagining Giana Sisters DS. Giana and her sister Maria were in bed when a warp gate appeared, in which Maria disappeared. Before the gate closes, Giana jumps through it to rescue her sister. There, she finds herself in a dream world full of foes.
In this side-scroller 2.5d platformer Giana can swim, jump, kill enemies by jumping on their heads or 'twist' the dream, and collect gems to unlock next the levels. When Giana twists, the entire dream world is transformed, changing everything in the surroundings right away and it can be performed at any moment in any level. In the Nightmare world, Cute Giana is peaceful, mocking the nightmare which once frightened her when she was a child, and with peaceful music in the background. Cute Giana can twirl, spin in the air, and fall very slowly. In the fairy dream world Punk Giana is upset and the soundtrack is turned into metal music arrangements. Punk Giana can bash, reach high passages, destroy weak obstacles and kill enemies. Some obstacles are only present in one world, or moving platforms change their direction when Giana twists. At the end of each world there is a boss to beat: Giana has to avoid its attacks and find a way to hit it three times.
There is no life counter. After dying Giana respawns at the last checkpoint. At the end of the level the performance is rated with one to five stars, depending on the percentage of collected gems, number of respawns etc. Stars are used to unlock boss levels and hardcore modes. In the Hardcore mode there are no checkpoints. When dead, the entire level needs to be restarted. In the Über-hardcore mode Giana has only one life. If she dies, the game starts back at the first level.
