Review by Kim Robinson on 8th February 2008
A single map release from Piterplus EZ jr, The Dream can pretty much be described by its title - with run of the mill street action combined with some rather trippy dream-like sequences, that and the somewhat nonsensical missing floor tiles here and there. As if somebody were stealing them for their own twisted purpose. Design is pretty solid, more or less on par with his Moonbase Accident episode, though there's a slight hint of oversizing in certain areas. Gameplay is fun and straightforward and the level is entirely replayable, thanks to the multiple difficulty settings and oddities you'll encounter.
There's not much of a challenge on the puzzle front, it's more your standard 'explore each part to find the next key card' deal, but the variation in theme certainly keeps things interesting. Take a gander.
Gameplay Type: SP
Requires: Duke Nukem 3D v1.4+ and JonoF/EDuke32
