    At a comparatively low price of $2.99, Dream Inn: Driftwood is pleasant and innocous enough for fans of the genre to benefit from but it is a little too unimaginative to outright recommend.

    A relatively run-of-the-mill hidden object game, Dream Inn generally comes off as a low-budget remake of Gardenscapes HD. The hidden-objectA relatively run-of-the-mill hidden object game, Dream Inn generally comes off as a low-budget remake of Gardenscapes HD. The hidden-object mechanic is relatively unpolished and clunky, graphics are passable but generally weak, and the UI (user interface) works but is not particularly friendly. All of these things point to a decent game, so why the 5? Several reasons: 1. The dialogue and voice acting are HORRENDOUS. It is so bad that I turned my iPad volume off. It's repetitive, far too cutesy-sweet to be from a human, and practically insulting to actual Britons. 2. The rendering of your assistant makes her look like less a human and more one of those mutant-looking androids that calls the Uncanny Valley home. (An interesting thing to look up.) Quite unsettling. 3. The restoration theme which was borrowed from Gardenscapes was poorly executed; you're expected to make a decision based on a small preview segment, then there's no changing your mind later -- two things that Gardenscapes didn't do and benefited from. Frankly, Dream Inn isn't much of a dream; it's a thin rehash of a successful game, done with much potential but, sadly, little skill in execution. Were it a $0.99 game, it would rate more highly, but at $3, it's middling at best. Expand
