OverviewOverview

Dreamscape is a running and jumping adventure with a dimension shifting twist. You play Rygan, a wingless teenage drake (a type of dragon). Rygan spends most of his day chasing sheep around until he discovers Gryphon, a wise spirit that teaches him about his special gift. Rygan can conjure up another dimension, and manipulate his surroundings by making platforms appear and disappear. Use this power to defeat the evil dragon that wants to steal Rygan's abilities, and save the world from collapse.

Follow Gryphon's instructions to make your way through the world. Button instructions appear early on in the game until you have used them sufficiently to learn them. Jump up through caves and steps, open doors with spinning wheels, and break open the land with special crystals. Press L1 to open up the other dimension to raise or lower platforms in your way, but be aware that by opening the portal you are letting in enemy eyeballs that can kill you. You also need to be careful not to close or open the portal when it may push you off a cliff or drop you in the river.

This charming adventure has a hero full of personality and a strong storyline about overcoming your biggest fears. The dimension shifting power is a simple but effective gimmick and adds a puzzle element to the jumping and door opening action.

This game has not yet been rated, but we anticipate it is likely to be rated PEGI 7.

At the start of the game the hero attacks some sheep and knocks them to the ground dazed. There are some moments involving the enemy characters that may be frightening for younger children. There are a few jump scares where the enemies appear without warning.

Skill Rating

8+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Puzzle elements of the game will require critical thinking and deductive reasoning.

Account Rating

Account required for online play that has 7 years old as minimum age. You must be 7 years old to have a PSN account, which is required to play Dreams. To set this up you need permission from a parent or guardian. Unless the parent or guardian specify not to restrict Network Features | Communication and User-Generated Content, or make an exception for Dreams they will only be able to access games and assets created by Media Molecule (rather than games made by the community).

AccessibilityAccessibility

Switching dimensions in the game causes flashes to appear on screen, and switching quickly between the dimensions can cause multiple flashes in quick succession.

Audio cues are used to indicate checkpoints activating, doors opening and platforms moving, and these can take place off-screen.

Checkpoints are available throughout the game but will only return you to that area during the game session upon death. If you leave the game you will be returned to the start of the last linked level of the game which may not be the last checkpoint you reached.
