Foreword: published September 23th, 2021

I received a free copy of this game for review purposes — thanks Hunny Bunny Studio! For the purposes of this review, I will only be discussing the patched game.

Gameplay: published September 23rd, 2021 (3/5★)

There are twelve images to unscramble by rotating tiles. Dream Girls Collection looks like a swippy-swappy puzzle game, but there is no need to move tiles around. Considering each level only offers twenty-four pieces, it only takes a minute or two to complete an image. There is virtually no challenge whatsoever (or so much as adjustable difficulty). Some users may find the dumbed-down puzzle mechanics relaxing, but I thought the game was boring.

Sexual Content: published September 23rd, 2021 (3/5★)

There are twelve animated CGs to unlock. Eleven of them feature sexual content, but all of them show nudity. Most (nine) of them include a male subject, but a few of them provide female masturbation. I didn’t enjoy the male characters; they’re faceless and out of place. Their faceless bodies and outfits clash with the beautiful cast of monster girls. I would have preferred a gallery of strictly masturbation, or lesbian sex. The artwork and animation are solid, but they’re a few steps from “professional grade”.

Story: published September 23rd, 2021 (3/5★)

While there isn’t any form of overarching story, there’s actually some world-building in the game! Whenever you complete a level, you’re treated to a few paragraphs of dialogue and information regarding the female protagonists. They cover topics such as “advantages” and “disadvantages”, and how they are “tamed”. The writing could be better, but it’s nice “extra extra” for anyone interested in Hunny Bunny Studio lore!

Sound: published September 23rd, 2021 (3/5★)

The gameplay offers a nice selection of puzzle sound effects and piano ambience. I heard a few sharp transitions in the music, but overall it’s not half-bad. However, it failed to grip my attention, so I ended up listening to my own jams.

Visuals: published September 23rd, 2021 (4/5★)

There is no titlecreen; following the opening music video and splash screens is level-select. I loved the the creativity behind this screen! Each level is represented by an adorable chibi that corresponds with the subject of the puzzle. Audio preferences can be adjusted via the pop-up gearbox-menu. Unlocked CGs may be viewed via the gallery, including animated and static variations. Unfortunately, at no point can the user-interface be totally hidden. Dialogue is strictly relegated to level completion — there is no way to simply reread character bios without resolving images.

Verdict: published September 23rd, 2021 (3/5★)

It’s good to see Hunny Bunny Studio experimenting with new gameplay, but Dream Girls Collection is still a mediocre puzzle game. The artwork and gameplay are decent, but the game isn’t remarkable in any sense. However, I really enjoyed the character bios within Dream Girls Collection — I hope to see Hunny Bunny Studio continue experimenting with written content in tandem with animated puzzle games. Dream Girls Collection isn’t much to see, but it’s a little better than the average hentai game.
