TrickyDream SymphonyThe Maestro has been waxing lyrical for weeks, but no matter how many times he checks his notes, he can't seems to find the right sounds to finish his opus. Usually, composition is his forte, but now he's lost all measure of inspiration. But maybe a little nap will recharge his creative batteries... Dream Symphony is a vertical launch-style platform game by Igor Kulakov and George Zarkua, where the higher you bounce, the closer you scale to musical perfection.

Move the maestro using the mouse or [arrow] keys, and click or press [up] to jump from sheepy platform to sheepy platform. Jump as high as you can, getting a boost from solid notes and instruments, while avoiding the red sour ones. Various power-ups will aid your ascent, like sour note freezing Ice Cubes or the invincibility granting Muse Sunglasses. The higher you go, the more cash you'll earn, which can be used to purchase upgrades between levels. Make it to 4748 feet, and you'll end up looking pretty sharp indeed. Dream Symphony is an absolute treat for the senses. Its visual style is like Adventure Time, if it was produced by the quirksters at Amanita Design, and while this reviewer is not usually one who notices excellent sound design, uh, Dream Symphony's sound design is excellent. Whether it's how the background music gets ever more complex the higher you climb, the little happy pops of the power-ups, the discordant blares of the sour notes... heck, even the inexplicable Nyan Cat cameo isn't that bad when accompanied by a xylophone remix of his theme. Add into that some polished gameplay and you've got a game that'll be music to your ears.

Absolutely adorable, although I was hoping for something a little more at the very end.

I'm lousy at platform games but simply had to finish this one to hear the entire symphony. Totally enjoyed the graphics, music, and concept.
