Mimpi takes a simple story of a dog in search of his owner and turns it into a platforming journey through surreal landscapes and puzzles.
Mimpi follows the titular dog on a journey to find his owner, taking you across a number of unusual fantastical worlds from space to the mysterious facility. The platforming itself will be familiar to fans of the genre and the controls can feel kind of clunky but the highlights are the wonderful art style and smart integration of the touchscreen into the game's puzzles. The weird and surreal levels you try through are all interesting to explore, each with their own obstacles and motifs and populated by unusual creatures that help and hinder. The puzzles themselves all make intelligent and varied use of the touch controls, allowing you to perform such feats as dragging clouds through the sky, reeling in entire continents, and other interesting uses.
