Love the mysteries

It is a great game to play during the day as it does not rely on countless devoted hours to progress through the game. Some of the analysis do take longer than they need to but I guess that is how the developers make their money. Still a great way to spend the quiet times during the day playing the game.

Sneaky Devs

I've been playing the suite of games by Pretty Simple for many years now. Over the time I've found the games have a good storyline with side stories. However game timers have progressively modified to benefit them and not the players. The mobile versions have very intrusive ads that interrupt the game regularly for in excess of 30 seconds at a time. Thus continuity for the player is destroyed. I'd be happy to pay to play games rather than put up with sneaky ways to maximise their income.

If you play via FB, expect constant nagging to 'post to Facebook'. If you allowed the game to post when it wanted to, your timeline would fill with this rubbish quickly and no one would read your page.

Overall, it's a good game with quality art and graphics and can hold your interest. Just be aware of the FB posting and obtrusive ads and keep an eye out for other Hidden Object games in the market.

Love the game, but so many software issues. It freezes, it cuts out.....and when it cuts out I've lost my bonus energy, I constantly miss out on the daily bonus wheel spin because of freezing issues and worst of all I paid for 10 packs of cards for my album but it hasn't delivered them.
If it functioned like it's supposed to, it would be great. Please sort these issues out, it's very frustrating.
I played normal Criminal Case from start to finish over 2-3 years and not once did I have any of the issues Mysteries Of The Past has had.
