Jo’s Dream Coffee Shop
Jo’s Dream Coffee Shop is a time
management game on the iPhone/iPod Touch, and iPad. The iPad version of
Jo’s Dream Coffee Shop has a HD at the end of the game name and it costs
two dollars more ($3.99 for iPad, and $1.99 for iPhone).
Jo’s Dream Coffee Shop starts out giving families a choice. Play normal mode or expert. I recommend you start with the normal mode. It will be easy to learn the game, and develop strategies to deal with its nuances. Plus it will be better for your sanity.
I noticed right off that there is a woman showing off some cleavage in Jo’s Dream Coffee Shop. Not terrible, but definitely noticeable. Men with enticement to lust issues may want to avoid the title screen of Jo’s Dream Coffee Shop on iOS.
Like so many other time management games, Jo’s Dream Coffee Shop starts us out with a comic strip. This tells the story. This is to motivate us to do our best with this coffee shop. There was no pinch and zoom. Wow those words are really tiny. I found no pinch and zoom feature at all while playing Jo’s Dream Coffee Shop.
The music in Jo’s Dream Coffee Shop is nice and relaxing. Which you will need with all those demanding customers. They always want massive amounts of something and we can only do so much at a time. The graphics have a neat look to them. I like the look of the shop, furniture, and customers.
The design layout of Jo’s Dream Coffee Shop needs some help. The tea and espresso machines are too close. I hit one instead of the other way too often. A customer and chocolate syrup are also too close. Again the wrong one registered and time was lost. Jo’s Dream Coffee Shop grades you on the time you fulfill orders. So this was frustrating. What made things worse was tapping the cupcake stand five times before it gave me a cupcake.
Another issue I have with Jo’s Dream Coffee Shop is the trash can. I made a mistake early in the game. I confused a tea order with an espresso order. I could not find where to dump the item. Jo’s Dream Coffee Shop would not let me pick up anything else. I eventually did find the trash can - after the customer was angry at me.
Players do specific tasks to earn points to level up in Jo’s Dream Coffee Shop. Playing levels only earns money. Certain items can only be purchased/upgrades at certain levels. There are IAP so you can skip some of this. After paying for the app, its hard to justify paying even more money.
