Almost perfect

This app is amazing and I would really recommend it if you are into horror or true crime. And I thought it would be 5 star worthy... But then I realized that about every 15 minutes you have to stop reading for 45 minutes and leaves you on a cliffhanger. But hey, at least it gives you something to look forward to.

Love the graphics

I don't usually like this type of games, but this one has really caught my attention because of its graphics and music, but mainly because of the story of the game.

LJ's feedback ,

Ummm... That doesn't make sense.

I don't get the review where the title is "Seriously?" They said that this app is "Bull Crap" and they said they were giving it 1 star but then they gave it 5 stars. I just like don't get that.
