The world as you know it is shattering. You are the only one left. Everyone is gone and you are the only one left. It is up to you to restore the world by awakening the Almightree. In order to do that, you have to travel through crumbling levels to find the seedlings and activate them. You have to make it to the seedlings at the end of the level before the ground completely crumbles under you. To make it to the seedlings you have to solve block swapping puzzles along the way. If you don’t solve them in time before the ground crumbles you fall into the abyss. As the last dreamer, it is up to you to make things right and restore the world. That is what Almightree: The Last Dreamer is all about.
Almightree: The Last Dreamer is a 3D puzzle platformer that is actually a lot of fun to play. I know that at first it may not seem like it because it is a puzzle platformer. The goal in each level is to find the seedling and race to beat the clock. When you play through a level the world around you is crumbling. If you stay in one spot for too long the ground beneath you crumbles and you fall into the abyss. Each level is made up of blocks. As you progress through the level you will encounter a puzzle that you have to solve in order to keep moving forward.Since you are the last dreamer you have the ability to move and teleport blocks.
What made this game fun to play was that each level wasn’t so hard that you wanted to break your PC. The puzzles weren’t overly complicated either. You could change every block you step on and move it where you need it. In order to advance you have to think outside the box and get creative. You don’t have a lot of time either to figure things out.
What I really enjoyed was that I could move any block I wanted and put it where I wanted it. If I needed to cancel the move I could. Each block is basically a puzzle piece. It is your job to figure out how they fit.There was one drawback for me. If you got almost to the end of the level and didn’t figure out how to get to the seedling in time you had to redo the entire level again. I would have liked the option to save my progress.
Even when I had to redo a level it didn’t feel like I was replaying the same exact level over and over. I could redo a level and move the blocks in a different pattern than before. But you have to think things through when you move the blocks. If you don’t think it through carefully you could get yourself stuck and run out of time that way. I learned that the hard way.
Each level is different from the previous one and it doesn’t make Almightree: The Last Dreamer feel repetitive. Thanks to the game not being ridiculously difficult and not knowing when or if you would fall it was actually fun replaying a level.
I love a game that doesn’t have complicated controls especially when it is a PC game. Almightree: The Last Dreamer didn’t have complicated controls. You only used the arrows on the keyboard to move around and the space bar to teleport blocks. Those were really the only ones you needed to play the game.
The graphics I thought were beautiful. The bright colors, the images of the fallen world in the background, and the almost cartoony aspect tied into the story quite well. I liked that Almightree: The Last Dreamer didn’t take itself too seriously and kept everything lighthearted even in the graphics.
Anyone can enjoy this game. You don’t need a ton of skill and yet it wasn’t too easy that you got bored quickly. Adults and kids alike would enjoy the Almightree: The Last Dreamer. The graphics are beautiful, it isn’t overly complicated or too time consuming to play. There is even a multiplayer mode as well. You can also unlock a harder difficulty if you need more of a challenge. Keeping things simple, lighthearted, fun yet challenging work well for Almightree: The Last Dreamer. One of the best puzzle-platformers I have played all year.
