Splatty's Adventure (Dreams) Review
Posted: 7 days ago, last updated 5 days ago.
Play involves running along walls, dashing between platforms, attacking enemies with your paintbrush and using your time power to solve puzzles and make the platforming easier. As you progress you discover a central hub world with huge areas branching off of it, each with their own theme.
The result is a game like Super Mario Odyssey but without the commercial edge. It feels lovingly made, and offers an imaginative adventure into a world where you are smaller than everything around you.
Skill RatingThis game is enjoyed by 9-14 year-olds as it's a good match for their ability and maturity. The game isn't easy to progress, but younger players will enjoy exploring. Some help with solve puzzles will help them on their way.
