Great game, beautiful graphics but...

As with any game there are things I love about this game and things I can’t stand but the loves are much more than the hates. I look at this game as entertainment so I don’t mind spending a little each month on it and so far I have been able to play without paying a large amount. Sure, if you are impatient then you may have to pay more but you can play without paying it will just take longer. Love- The graphics are beautiful and very well done and the challenges are challenging but as in the last event- the Greenhouse- some are somewhat ridiculous. There is no way to find all the items in time without using a “tool” and if I had not had a large amount saved up I would have given up on it right away. There is a difference between challenging and mind boggling developers! My only other major dislike is the repetition of having to search in the same area over and over on’s a huge town developers, why do we have to stay in the same place quest after quest?? Lastly would be the monster must have EXTREME patience to survive those and I must admit to absolutely hating the monster quests. In the last one I had to save up over 100 “guns” to beat that quest...that was almost a weeks work for a very small pay out. Keep it fun developers, nobody likes to play something that makes them want to pull their hair out. Other than that I have made some great friends and spent many an hour happily playing.

Ads other games such annoying

Update : I like new updated every events. It’s beautiful graphics. But please reduce ads pop up it would be more fun.
Why you didn’t listen players? I love this game and i have 4 accounts. I even support your game to buy rubies too!

I like investigation games i like everything about this game it’s beautiful graphics and fun. Except i hate the ads. There are ads games popped up so many times after done playing each times. It’s so annoying. I had to press X to turn it off when the ads popped up. I don’t understand why you have to have ads games to interrupt players too often. It’s not include pushy purchase stuff in the games popped up after done playing each times. And there are friends automatically invited play other games but they didn’t send invitations. It’s just sent by automatically but it’s so annoying i had to press X to delete invitations other games too often. There are many players complain about ads and invitations other games. Please don’t do these things to annoys players and please reduce or stop these ads. I like playing this game i have four accounts i bought some rubies. I don’t mind spending money on this game. I have been playing almost a year and everyday when i have time. I never wrote review any apps before but i had to write review at this time because i feel so annoyed these ads popped up! Sigh...

Fun game but hidden key quests disappear.

Good game, just have to take breaks because of difficulty seeing hidden items strains eyesight that is already limited. But curious thing on major quests I noticed. After you find the 500 key chest you are offered a 1000 key chest that is stated to remain active and open for another 30 days at least. But every time a new location is opened with a storyline to complete that has keys to find the last hidden key option disappears. It has been less than a week since the last big quest ended and a new one has begun. The ballet one just started today. But the summer theatre key chest for 1000 has disappeared just like previous chests. I get that having two locations for keys might be confusing, but then you shouldn’t offer the option of continuing to collect keys with the supposed 30 days of time. Just tell the truth that as soon as the next quest starts you won’t be able to finish collecting keys so don’ waste tools and energy to have over 400 or 500 keys disappear with no explanation. We could have saved those tools and energy for the new quest if you were up front about not really giving the 30 days to collect those 1000 keys after the main quest has expired. Learned my lesson after 3rd time and will not be suckered into wasting supplies or my efforts on trying to get the special 1000 key chest on a story quest again. Still like the game but don’t appreciate being lied to just so you can get more $ for tools and energy boosters.
