Dominic Crane's Dreamscape Mystery Dominic Crane is an artist constantly assaulted by nightmares where he is trapped in a strange place he never visited. Haunted and deeply disturbed by these visions, he resorts to a hypnosis session performed by a psychiatrist to uncover all the mysteries hidden inside his mind.

Dominic Crane's Dreamscape Mystery is a hidden object game taking place inside the protagonist's dreams. The player moves between the many connected rooms depicted in his nightmare, where the main objective is to find a series of keys to open all the locked doors and escape back to reality. In some scenes, the player has to find and click on all the items listed at the bottom of the screen, with some of the objects being stored in inventory slots to be used later when solving puzzles. The inventory items have to be used as in most point-and-click adventures, where they are dragged and dropped on the logical places to perform an action or complete a task. The hint button is Dominic's portrait at the bottom-left corner, showing the position of one of the required items but taking some time to recharge after use.

Some puzzles appear on separate screens after clicking on certain hotspots. They are variations of mini-games found on many other casual titles, where the player has to assemble jigsaw puzzles, move stones blocks inside a box to clear the exit path for a ring, flip coins to find matching pairs, set gears on a clockwork mechanism and complete other challenges.
