Pls let me play without starting over!

Both me and my mom love to play this game. However I don’t play all the time so I haven’t been keeping up with all the episodes. My mom has and she has been able to play Pacific Bay, Worlds Edition, Mystery’s of the Past all from one app. I got done with Grimsborough and want to move on to Pacific Bay but when I do I have to download a separate app to do so. I wouldn’t mind this if all my progress like my level, my avatar, my pet, my money, and my rings came with me. They don’t and I have to start over from square 1 again. Can you pls fix this to were those of us who want start at Grimsborough can play through the story without having to start as a rookie again every time we move to a new episode! Or at least put a progress sync or something in the other apps that will let us sync our progress from the other games. If people want to start at Pacific Bay fine, but don’t punish those who want to start the story from the beginning! I have tried to email you about this problem twice already and got the same generic “Check the FAQ” response. I want to continue to play this game as I love it, but I don’t want to start over and get a tutorial when I know what to do. Pls listen to your fan base and do something about this!

Disappointed with Criminal Case

I have been playing these games for years, especially the first one created. I play it on my iPad mini. I have had so many issues with it crashing. I counted at least 25 videos that I watched to receive energy and I never received it. The screen would go black, gray or white and then crash. The same goes for watching videos for cash, but I only counted 12. There were 3 times that I spent $5000 on a round of investigation and it crashed while I was playing, so there went that money. I'm beyond frustrated. I have tried several times to follow the instructions given in the troubleshoot. It's horrible that they send you a message saying that this is going to be the only contact that you receive from us. What happened to talking to real people and getting help with a problem? I rarely play the games anymore. I've put so much time and effort into it that I'm torn. I really do not want to shut it down and lose all my progress. I definitely think this game and its makers/customer service has several issues to work on. Your players are committed to playing your game, please be committed to helping them when they have an outrageous number of errors.
I tried playing it on my iPhone but it takes me back to near the beginning of the game. I can't even sync my devices to be at the same place in the game. Would love some help!

Progressing from world edition to mysteries of the past

I’ve been playing this game for the last 5 years. I loved this game. Throughout the ups and downs, highs and lows, depression and anxiety, this game was something I could always fall back on. I had found comfort from a tumultuous life in this game! The developers have no idea, how much this game helped my mental health.
Unfortunately, I’m at the end of the world edition. I don’t want it to end. I wish it like continue to another level or something. But The progress I’ve made, none of it would pass on to the mysteries of the past. It’s like THE END and I can’t face that. I’ve stopped playing because I don’t want to progress anymore. Why would you do that? Why would you make mysteries of the past a separate game??? There are so many out there like me who just don’t understand the point of separating the game. I played 5 years! That’s not a joke! I’ve known this game longer than I’ve known my husband or kids! This game was my comfort from the craziness of life. I wish it hadnt ended that way! Please, keep the game together! Don’t separate the parts! They need to be connected! Mysteries of the past with the rest of criminal case! I can’t lose the only thing that’s keeping me going!

I have finished the game till the world edition. I refuse to play mysteries of the past unless the app allows me to carry on my progress from world edition! IM DONE!
