Another Difference game! Wait, make that two! Kongregate hasn’t seen one of these in a while. Despite the simplistic nature of these types of games, they are always fun to play, and these 2 are no exceptions. With the addition of a high score table, it’s even more enjoyable to compete with friends over who is the fastest.
Now the artwork in both these games is just gorgeous. In Dreams, they tell the story of a seemingly high school student who falls asleep in class and daydreams. In her dream, the imagery is astounding. I have lost plenty of chances to make the high score list just because I was admiring the scenes. In Jasmine and Jack, it’s the tale of a girl playing playing with her dog. Here the artwork is more cuter, manga-ish if you will, but that still doesn’t mar it in any way possible. It’s still quite beautiful.
Jasmine & Jack in the park
The music in both games is well done; a soft, mysterious composition for Dreams and a beat that sets the mood of a afternoon playing in the park for Jasmine and Jack. To help you on your difference finding journey, there’s a little circle that surrounds the area where your mouse is on the other picture, and it jumps from picture to picture. Some might find it’s usability lacking a bit, or maybe a tad nuisance, especially because it is too tiny. A minor blemish.
Now, through every play-through something else is changed, so no game is alike. In Jasmine and Jack, there are multiple endings to consider! All these things make the replaying these two games quite fun indeed. A great addition to the casual game scene. It really pushes the envelope on games as art.
