Dreamscaper is a rogue-lite action RPG where you enter a beautiful dream world and battle the nightmares that plague your subconscious.
In Dreamscaper you take on the role of Cassidy, a young woman who dives into her subconscious each night when she goes to sleep and attempts to defeat the nightmares that are pushing her towards a dark fate. Each night you drop into a different randomly generated dreamscape equipped with a random loadout of weapons which you must use to fight your way through.
As you make your way through the dreamscapes you discover secrets, collect more powerful weapons and collect Glass which can be used to permanently unlock new weapons and abilities. The battles can be tough though and health pick-ups are very limited so you have to be careful when tackling enemies.
You’re generally always equipped with a melee weapon, a ranged weapon/ability and a shield. Ranged ammo is fairly limited so the main focus is on melee combat, which is fast and fluid. Most enemies can be easily dispatched on their own but if you have to take more than one of them on at a time (which is often) then things can get a lot tougher, with your best bet is to try and isolate them and take them out one-by-one.
It’s a very promising game, with a satisfying skill based combat, a nice variety of enemies and a game world that’s a joy to explore. The beautiful dreamy forest setting that would be very relaxing and pleasant place to be if it wasn’t for all those nasty nightmares trying to kill you!
