Play involves controlling Art or his toys in different scenarios. You flit between different challenges in a dream-like set of levels. Sometimes you are clambering over instruments, or manipulating the world to help Art escape from them. In other levels you are playing instruments, or using his two childhood toys to complete platforming tasks.
This was built by Media Molecule as a showcase of possibilities for creators in Dreams. It was launched with the main game on launch day. As a showcase, each section of the game has a different game style and artistic look, so you may be playing a point and click adventure one minute, and jumping across disappearing platforms the next.
This results in an unusual eclectic mix of different game styles. But more than a mere novelty, each level features its own songs so that if you play it in one go it offers the experience of a full length musical.
This Dreams level is the only game in Dreams with an official rating, and therefore is the reason for the rating of Dreams as a whole.
