Reviews of Jo's Dream - Organic Coffee

Full Disclosure: I played this game for about thirty minutes before writing this review. First off, the reviewers who have said that the game is frustrating - I agree with them 100%. Having to click on the customers every single time you want to know what they've ordered is ridiculous. I've never encountered another Time Management game that uses this feature (thank goodness). The graphics are only okay. If you're going to go through the trouble of making a game 3D, you should probably make sure the characters don't look ugly in the process. Sadly, that's not the case here. Gameplay is, as the title of this review states, boring and frustrating. Frustrating, mainly because of having to click and reclick on customers to see what the heck they want, and boring because... there's not much fun to do. You hand them a coffee of some kind or another, hand them a pre-made croissant or ice cream... and that's pretty much it. Oh yes, and pick up the garbage they leave behind (am I the only one who doesn't leave filth on a table at a fast food restaurant? That's not how I was raised!). The music is completely forgettable. The sounds customers make, however, is ANNOYING. Seriously, very bad, and that's in a genre where customer sounds are usually somewhat annoying. So, don't say I didn't warn you. Overall, this game is very disappointing. The premise sounded interesting. Organic coffee shop! Hey, that's kind of cool. And maybe, later on, it does get better. I'm not inclined to find out. I'll be removing this one from my computer post haste.

This is a really good game and I highly recommend it if you are into Time Management games. You have to think and act pretty fast to get all the drinks and food items to the customers before the get angry. The hired help does come in handy but you have to pay pretty well to get them to serve the customers. And be careful, you can get in their way (and vise versa) in trying to help the customers. The graphics are great too...that always helps. The upgrades are fun as well. I like the renovations on the building as well as the equipment. Definitely a good challenge for the Time Management aficionado.

I actually had a lot of fun playing this game. I thought it was going to be like most TM games regarding food where I control the main character and take all the orders and serve food myself, but it was quite different. I enjoyed having staff to help while I micromanaged everything in the cafe. I also enjoyed the challenge of trying to remember what was in each drink, though you can reference the recipe book and the picture in the customer's thought bubble if you can't remember the ingredients. I also loved the idea of completing tasks and gaining stars to unlock more upgrades. This game lasted longer than many TM games out there and I had a blast playing it. I hope they make more games like this.

I love TM games, however, I found this game to be very tedious and slow. The help was extremely slow, too many combinations of food to figure out, and very difficult to serve the customers before they get angry. Couldn't handle it beyond the first 2 weeks.

This was a fun TM game and it did provide hours of enjoyment. But it has some issues. The English in the cut scenes is unintentionally hilarious. It doesn't have any way to track which levels you just played and the ones where you met the goal (which seems to be the equivalent of an expert score) So once you have made it through the game there is no incentive at all to replay anything. I liked that you had to put some thought into making the drinks and it was more challenging than just clicking on things. Also, it crashed on me quite a few times.

If you like time management games then this game is for you. It is very addictive once you start playing you are not going to want to get up from your computer. You can hire staff that will help you and the upgrades are very good. The graphics are great as well. If you are a coffee person then this game is for you also. It has so many different recipes for a great coffee house experience. This games is hours of great coffee fun!

I must agree with "2 Fast's" review. Machines were quite slow, staff were more of an impairment than assistance, goals very difficult to meet. It would have helped me if the recipes were posted somewhere in the restaurant, also, machines larger or labeled. It could be my memory, but I had a hard time remembering recipes. After hiring staff, I found that they were more in the way than helpful. I liked the idea of managing & decorating the coffee shop, but I had to quit after about 15 minutes...2 frustrating 2 be enjoyable.

I really enjoyed the trial for this game but i found it quite difficult and hard to pick things up, also the staff are slow even when fully upgraded and the customers become impatient very fast. I liked the upgrades and they did actually make the equipment better unlike some games where upgrades make no difference. All in all a fun game but i dont think i would purchase it.

i ususally like this type of game, but...the machines were slow to respond, the staff were more in the way than helpful, and the customers got angry and left extremely quickly. i found myself frustrated instead of enjoying the game play.

Still in the middle of the game - but a lot of fun! Finally, a TM game!

Enjoyed the twist of having employees and really sets up for managerial feel of game. Gave a nice realistic feel to setting up a coffee shop and the little details (the clarity of the characters, the little coffee cups and treats) really made it a standout game. I'd recommend it to anyone who loves TM games.

I enjoyed playing this game.. Once I got the recipe's right (I had to look at the book several times) it made it even more enjoyable.. I enjoyed the quirky character's and would LOVE to see more TM game's on Gamehouse.. They are truly my fave genre but have played a lot of awesome HO games on here lately since this game was my last TM game I truly enjoyed...Well this one and the last Delicious game!!!!!!

All in all i'm pleased with this new game. I've been really mad at GH for not releasing very many TMs in the last few months. This one makes up for that loss. In this game, you have to repeatedly click on customers to see what their orders are, then from there, click on what they ordered, either drinks or food. 2 flaws I found with this: 1. All the recipes are hard to remember. Yes, they have pictures but some of the pictures are hard to see what the individual items are that make up the certain drink, so you have to guess. 2. The 'staff' is more annoying than functional. I hired 2 thinking they would help me, but ended up firing them because I could click faster then they could work (sometimes they refused to work) All in all, I like this game, and if asked, yes, I would probably buy it. Seems like it would have a good re-play value. Nice job Gamehouse--hope you have more like this one up your sleeve. :)

This game is not my favorite of TM games. It starts very slow, and continues that way. Every day is the same thing. You don't open new drinks unless you purchase upgrades. Many upgrades aren't available until you gain more star ratings. The game never really becomes addicting. The staff in the game make it very frustrating. They are slow, even with upgrades, and they don't always work, even with the highest salary. The end up getting in the way more than helping. The customers quickly get mad and leave, leaving you no time to complete the order, which leaves me more frustrated than anything else. I had high hopes for this game, and I was proved wrong.

I ALMOST FEEL AS IF I'M REALLY BUILDING MY OWN COFFEE SHOP. IT'S A BIT SLOW AT FIRST. ESPECIALLY BUILDING YOUR STAFF, BUT AS YOU DO YOU SEE YOUR DREAM COME TRUE AS YOUR STAFF DOES THE WORK FOR YOU. (I COULD USE A SPICY LATTE NOW!)

This is the kind of game I enjoy playing~ It lets you upgrade very cute things like the equipment in your store. It's quickly paced with the new items introduced and the characters are fun when they walk in. The graphics are pretty for me to look at and I wanted to keep playing all night and I would have if I didn't have assignments i needed to do.
