Though cancelled in North America, Dream Probe was advertised and reviewed for a western release (the game was released in Japan in 1992 by Riot, under the name "Psycho Dream"). The cancellation came shortly after SEGA bought Renovation, with some speculating that SEGA did not want to fund any game to be released on the competing SNES.
The game itself has the player controlling a prominent U.S. scientist who has invented a dream machine. After a young girl becomes trapped within the machine you follow her into six of her dreams in an attempt to rescue her. Strangely, most of her dreams are about futuristic cities filled with cybernetic enemies.
Electronic Gaming Monthly issued the scores of 5,6,5,5 adding, "...there is a good variety of levels with plenty of nice scenery to look at, but when you play the game you find the power-ups are rather mild and the bosses slow down the game too much".
