6 / 10.0

Reverie originally released on the PlayStation Vita and PS4 in 2018. In the year since its launch, Rainbite added a new “nightmare” difficulty, item select wheel, new sprites, updated dialogue and a new mini-game for the Switch's Sweet As Edition. Those extras are nice, but they don't give the world the anomalous personality it needs. There's no part of Reverie I can point to and say, “This is bad,” as nothing it does would warrant such a label. In fact, most of the game is rather pleasant, but it's a type of pleasantry that dissipates the moment I set down the controller.

I did like the bosses for the way they used the game’s scope. The sprite work and attack patterns were impressive and even though they weren’t too all too challenging, I could really appreciate the care and effort that went into their design.

Like a wonderful dream, Reverie is over a little too soon, but it leaves you with some pleasant memories.
