AlterEgo: DreamWalker is the sequel to AlterEgo a multi-level, platform game where you navigate around platforms, obstacles and monsters. In it you must control your alter ego or phantom twin that mirrors your moves from across the screen to somehow collect all the jewels and meet up again to proceed to the next level.

You have an alter ego or phantom twin that mirrors your moves from across the screen. When you hit a dead end, tap the switch box at the bottom of the screen to trade places on the screen with your alter ego. To move around the screen, you tap/hold the screen and a virtual joystick appears. This can be a little tempermental and stopping on a dime can be tough.

You control a hero who has a phantom twin, his alter ego. When the hero moves, the alter ego moves too in a mirrored fashion. In some levels the movements are mirrored horizontally, in other ones they are mirrored vertically. You can switch between the hero and his alter ego limited number of times in a level.

To complete a level, you need to collect all the jumping pixels. Usually you can take them only with the hero, but on some levels there are pixels of another color, these can only be collected by the alter ego.
There are evil skulls around, don’t touch them and do not fall into the water or outside of the level, or you’ll lose an attempt.

You have a limited number of switches per level and once you've collected all your jumping pixels, you advance to the next level. Levels get a more challenging and complicated as you progress through the game. For some, the retro graphics with AlterEgo may be an acquired taste but they fit the game well.
