The is a very well developed game. The graphics are sharp, the object searches fit each situation well, and the story line flows well. I found the solution used to keep the Doctor occupied delightful. I have always wanted to do this, but common sense always won out in the past. Play this game, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Wow, I had been SO looking forward to playing this and the Gamehouse here did not disappoint me. I was hooked to this right from the get go and held my interest all the way to the very end. I did unfortunately have to quit playing since I started about a couple of hours before work but you bet I did continue this when I got home. : ) In this game you take on the role of Dr. Corey Foster who works for a Dr. Alexander, very creepy and up to no good type of doctor, in a clinic who has the ability to travel into her patients' dreams and fix their nightmares. However, while doing this, Dr. Foster starts having disturbing visions of her own and this is where this "red fox" comes into play. Her patients' nightmares are also connected to her own disturbing visions. The game play is mostly inventory items used to fix the nightmares which you will travel back and forth between patients' nightmares. There is however HOG scenes and mini games of course. The graphics I found to be excellent and very well done. The hint charges up pretty quick along with the skip. There's also sparkles to help you along. The characters do not talk so you do have to read. This game while I found it pretty easy, nothing complicated for me, took me about 4 hours but I tend to poke around and really check everything out especially when I know the creators took a lot of time making this game. I just loved the story, characters, and the traveling back and forth between the nightmares. The only 2 things I wish would of been different but not enough of a gripe for me to take off stars is I wish there wouldn't of been so many sparkles and the characters talked in the game. I must say even though I'm not one who likes to do a lot of reading in a game, I didn't mind it so much cause I found it very interesting. From the ending looks like possibly, maybe a sequel?? So give it a whirl and decide for yourself. I hope you end up enjoying it as much as I did. I think this game ROCKS! LOVED IT! Thank you Gamehouse and creators for a great game here.
I played this game in one hour. I was looking forward to this game. It has been so long since you have had a hidden object game and I thought this was going to be great. I was very dissapointed. It was the easiest game I have ever played.

I am very selective with the games I play because I do not have a lot of free time to dedicate for a game. When I am able to play I need to be interested and engaged so I can feel my time was well spent. I have tried different games on a trial basis and Dream Mysteries Case of the Red Fox was my very first purchase. The story was predictable and the hidden object scenes were simple but that is fine by me. Moving from place to place to find objects and bring them elsewhere is typically what I find unpleasant about a lot of games because the transition is not user friendly for a less experienced game player like me but that was not the case here. I definitely enjoyed myself and was eager to keep playing. It did not take me ages to finish but I was not done too quickly either so Red Fox was the right balance for me. The graphics were fabulous and colorful. The music and ambient sounds were not distracting. I would recommend this game to adults and kids.
I will not say to much except I really liked this game. It has good graphics and story. I do not want to spoil it for everyone. I hope they come out with another.

while this game is easy-find items, go to different locations in and out of dreams, i still found it interesting. the story is creepy enuf-being able to go into other's dreams-but how cool to be able to change the dreams by changing something in the real world. i found some parts funny-putting the captain's feet in a bucket of h2o in the real world making the tide rise in his dream world. or giving the mermaid a toy soldier to hold so she'd give up a telescope. it may be short and easy, but i like it.
I played the game through the free game of the day but would have bought it if it only offered a 1 hour free time. It's that good. Game has a good mix of problem solving games and hidden objects games. Game was challenging enough without driving me crazy and getting frustrated. And MAJOR thanks to Lagoona(sp?) and others for the help through the forums especially the hint about if the dream cloud is still above the patient's head then you are not done. Was majorly stumped with Anne and Rupert until I saw that tidbit on the forums page. Without the forum help, this game would have been extremely hard for me. Enjoyed how the patient's dreams interacted with each other. Fantastic graphics. Would never want to meet the mad doctor in real life. He was scary enough in this game. Do not know about the music as I never have the sound on due to the ads unless the ad interests me. Hopefully there will be/is a sequel.
This is a really FUN game! Well planned, well presented, and well connected. I especially like the "parallel universe" concept - very similiar to the "shadow rooms" of "Mystery of Mortlake Mansion" - only this time it's reality connected to the patients' dreams! Only wish these writers had incorporated the map feature of "Mortlake" - that enabled you to move quickly from one room to another.. Great animation, fun mini-games, clever HOs, and a real good plot that keeps your interest throughout the game. Not an especially pleasant workplace for all (hint: some of the staff might be more in need of therapy than the patients)! Looking forward to many sequels!!
This poignant, somewhat melancholy, game tells of a young psychologist whose task is to delve into the dreams of four people and cure them of their fears. It isn't like the previous GH "Dream" game, "Dream Voyagers"--that one was pretty empty-headed. "Red Fox" involves jumping back and forth between each person's real world and dream world; that "jumping" isn't a burden though--the transitions are done smoothly. The opening sequence is slow and herky-jerky--as an astute reviewer advised, skip it (there's not much to be learned). The options menu includes choice of cursors--custom one works well. Background music is at times barely noticeable--when you can hear it, the words "eerie" (not spooky) and "melancholy" come to mind. The emphasis is on hidden objects--they're relatively easy to spot, the scenes are colorful, and the graphics are good. Some of the tasks require "circled" parts and pieces (like Treasure Seekers), so that adds a little variety. "Hint" recharges quickly, and mini-games pose very little challenge. I haven't finished the game yet, but I'm guessing about 3 hours in length. This is a solid game. I think the "Red Fox" is a reference to "Kitsune," a red fox in Japanese folklore believed to possess supernatural powers (such as entering peoples' dreams?).
I loved this game. It was a very interesting concept and held my interest for the entire game. It is one of my favorite games that I have played so far on Gamehouse. The finding of objects to use throughout different dreams was a cool twist to a usual HOG.

Great graphics. Good story line, though pretty predictable. Nice HO, puzzles, and tasks, but kinda illogical (e.g. items in dreams and real world are used interchangeable). The fox is just a figure represents the one who toys with people's dreams. A little back and forth. Kid-friendly, since there's nothing violent or whatever like that, and I think the game actually gears toward kids, consider the easiness of puzzles. Minimal guide of what to do, but can be figured out, I didn't use hint outside HO so not sure what it does. Short play time. Kinda good replay since there's extra feature unlocked when you collect all dream pieces (just in-game puzzles actually). Recommended for playing, not so much for buying.
I liked this game because it wasn't so hard I needed a walkthrough but enough to keep my interest. Took 3 hours from start to finish which was just what I want before going to bed. If it would have taken longer, I would have stayed up all night. I had to see the ending. I have 4 games that I am stuck on right now and two don't have walkthroughs anywhere to be found. I will definitely look for more games from the makers of this one.
Very clear and pretty graphics, including HO's. Lots of fun with the dream sequences and interaction of dreams and reality. Mini games fun and none too complicated. Worth playing again to collect all of the dream pieces to unlock all of the extras. Thanks to the game forum as well because there are a few sticky places to get caught with no real help from the hints. Overall a decent game and would play a sequel or other games from this developer.
Finally a game with beautifully done graphics. It's important for hidden object game have clear images. Well done! Story was good too. Easier than others but still a pleasure

I enjoyed this game. Very different story line then most HO games. It was a bit easy so you shouldn't need the hints as much as you'd think. I only wished it was longer. More patients to examine. Overall, fun and interesting.

I thought this game vas a lot of fun and had a hard time shutting it off to go to work, feed the kids, etc.

This game is fairly easy. I find that I get a little lost from time to time and do not know which area I should be in. A little click of the old hint key and I am on the right track.

This game was a bit easy but it was also fun to follow the story line and go between scenes to find things. There are games out there more challenging but if you are looking for a fun game, good story line and keeps you interested this game is worth your time.

I found this game to be quite involved. The objects to be found and used were fun to search for and there was a lot of going back and forth from room to room. The only really bummer was that it was over way too soon. The again, I bought it for 2.99 so I guess I got my moneys worth. Good game all the same
