Prepare for a magical adventure in the Dreamica world! Have you ever been trapped in a dream? Two children - Dakini and Damarion - have the misfortune of experiencing just that. Their dream is haunted by a terrible ghost. During their escape, they trip and fall down the deepest chasm imaginable - one which spans dimensions! Fortunately, the good wizard, Walmond, conjures up a magical, bubble-like shield around them. It keeps them safe from the horrors of the nightmare, but it is also fragile and easily popped. Walmond almost used up all of his power with such a difficult spell, though, so he needs to rest awhile and can’t help children any more. To save them, it's up to you to guide them through dark forests, murky swamps, and other dangerous, magical, and dreamy places. The path will not be easy. Sharpen your reflexes and prepare your fingers; the journey from nightmare to beautiful dream is just beginning!

Sharpen your reflexes and prepare your fingers; the journey from nightmare to beautiful dream is just beginning! Dreamica is a fast-paced game about avoiding obstacles. It takes advantage of the touch controls on mobile devices. There are no virtual sticks or buttons - just the magical environment of the Dreamica world.

Your reflexes will improve quickly as you navigate between spikes, trunks, spores, and laser fireflies - all without stopping because evil spirits are constantly breathing down your neck!

History

Grumpy Bull Games is a very small group of developers who like to spend their time doing something nice - games. Their debut project is Dreamica, a simple but beautiful mobile game with an innovative control mechanism. Instead of overriding touch screen controls, it uses its full potential and advantages. All this works perfectly in combination with half pretty - half scary graphics and music.
