Bedtime Stories: The Lost Dreams
I didn't like this game at all. The first level was fun, so I bought the game. The rest of it sucked. Playing on expert was ridiculously hard because there wasn't enough storyline or instruction to help you figure out what to do next. I'm getting tired of these same types of games coming out every day. I understand why the became popular to begin with, but can somebody PLEASE offer some variations, or maybe release two games a day so those of us sick and tired of the same stuff can maybe start having fun on this site again?

The storyline (if there is one) is so disjointed it is hard to follow. You are dealing with making coffee, killing a spider with a mop (that only a real lady in distress would use..their words not mine). It's kind of dumb. The one thing going for it is that it is the first game in three days that is not an SE of a CE. Thought I could use some coupons but not on this game. Music is subdued and had no glitches in my 10 minutes. Just couldn't stay with it any longer.

Very Simplistic - Wonderful for Kids?
STORYLINE - confusing. Jumped from a small boy's family Christmas to a young ballerina about to perform ?????
GRAPHICS - bright & clear
CHALLENGE - none; game tells you what & where to go, & what to look for
Not recommended for adults.

Boring, Predictable & Lackluster...
I learned a valuable lesson with this game. Just because a game is a daily deal and only $2.99, does not make it a good game. I remember demoing this and thinking it wasn't that good and after playing the entire thing, I concur with my first thought, that this game is not very good. Its boring, lackluster and very predictable. Predictable isn't necessarily a bad thing but the story lines could have been a bit more intriguing.
You are helping your family get the lives they have always wanted because everyone is sad that they let their passions slip away and a little boy helps fix them. No one passions are all that interesting though. A mother wanted to succeed at a play, the daughter wanted to do adventures with some guy she likes, the dad wanted to be a baker, not a dentist and someone else wants to help solve crime but always lets the bad guy get away.
The game ran great at first and I might have liked it more if it ran smoothly but by the 2nd chapter, and there are only 4 chapters mind you, it started to lag in some places. It was hard to move the cursor around, it felt sticky and sometimes it got better and other times it just made the game lag. I see this is a problem in the technical forum of this game and since its been awhile since this game was released, I can see that no patch was ever made so thats not real great in my opinion.
Had the game mechanics worked properly, I might have given this 3 stars but the way it is, is sloppy and clumsily made and with only 4 chapters, there really isn't much game.
Now what I will give props to is the difficulty level. There are 2 modes, casual and expert. Expert mode is pretty hard because you don't get the skip button out of hidden object scenes and there is no going back to change your decision after the fact. What makes it even more difficult is that it doesn't show you a "hand" if something needs to get picked up so there were times I thought I had all the inventory but was missing something and it took me forever to find what it was. I should also mention though that its not consistent, the difficultly level, because there are times you will see the hand over items but it seemed like when I couldn't move on, it was always because I had missed an item that the hand did not tell me was there.
Overall, this is a filler game, which I usually enjoy but due to the technical issues, predictable story line and completely unoriginal stories, I have to give this game a pass and no I don't recommend you waste money or a credit on this one. Play the demo, be happy with it because its the only part that doesn't work slow and be done with it. Be happy not having to skip through a bunch of non voice over dialogue, snail slowwwww cut scenes and an overall boring game.

Frustrating...to say the least
This was one of those games that looked to have good potential but failed to realize it in actual game play. I didn't even manage to get through the full time of the trial before I gave up. There are really no solid indicators to your task and the 'dialogue' with characters seemed to be stuck in the 1800's mindset. If you're looking for a challenge, I highly suggest you look elsewhere.

It could have been better
there were so many ways this game could have been better.
The games had no instructions, figure it out or skip it. i skipped most of them. I liked the two ones where you had to get the pic and real one the same. it was just too easy or too hard the last bit was a piece of cake. I didn't even realize I had finished. if you click too much you miss what they are saying, and miss the point of the game.
I was just very disappointed.

Bedtime Stories put me to sleep
Not a real good HOG. I fell asleep going from one room to another looking for one clue then having to go back to the same location only to find a HO that wasn't there or needed before. I agree with Sunshinerqu78 with a little editing and tweeking this could be a good game. I do not recommend this game as it is.

Slow Pace and Dead Ends
Graphics were cute, but the "puzzles" were too easy and it was almost impossible to figure out what to do next (sometimes the hint button was not very helpful, and I don't even like to use a hint button). Also, about 25 minutes into the game, I came to a point where it was impossible to figure out what to do next so I had to give up. I don't recommend.

While the graphics were cute and family friendly the whole game experience was lacking. It is hard to figure out what you are supposed to do and the hints were not very helpful (by the way I found it annoying that I had to use the hint button to figure out what to do). The actual hidden object scenes were not difficult to do. All in all I ended up turning it off because it just wasn't all that fun.

It Lost Me!!!
Pretty inane storyline.
Graphics Ok and the HOS were relatively simple.
Any puzzles, if you could call them that, were pretty simple or the instructions gave it away.
Help was not that helpful and took a while to fill.
Not my cup of tea - gave up after 20 minutes.
