If you happen to have your historic hat on, you might remember a 1993 Ocean game called Sleepwalker.
Sleepwalker's Journey is quite a lot like that, but in place of a canine assistant you've got your finger. Using that tool you've got to guide perpetual somnabulator Moonboy across 45 twilit casual platform stages, adjusting the world with a series of carefully timed swipes.
Each 'dream' features three moons and a number of stars - all of which must be gathered within a devilishly tight time limit to score gold.
The trouble is, you've no direct control over Moonboy himself. Lost in the land of nod, he marches ever-onward - and only contact with a strategically placed pillow can flip the poor soul in the opposite direction.
A slick, accessible platform-puzzler with a satisfying emphasis on fast reactions and quick thinking
