I love this game BUT...

This is such a well developed game. I have loved every aspect of it so far, BUT there’s one big drawback. The game itself is free, but everything you do uses energy, & some things take a lot of energy, such as simply watching the comic storyline so you know what’s going on. I don’t think there’s even a way to skip it if you wanted.

So, they don’t explain all this when you start playing, & they give you some free energy to keep you going long enough to really get into it. Then you have to stop because you run out of energy, & you have to either pay (way too much for what you’d get) to instantly have more energy & keep playing, or you have to wait over 26 hours to totally rebuild your energy! You CAN play again in less than 26 hours, but that’s how long it takes to totally restore your energy. You can wait several hours & still not have enough to do certain things, or only have enough to play for a few minutes, literally.

This seems to be such a well made game that I would actually buy it if they had a version that cost a few dollars & I didn’t have to run out of energy so quickly. Or if it didn’t take so long to rebuild the energy & it didn’t deplete so rapidly I would love it. But there is no way I’m paying $2.99 for just a few minutes of play!!! I wish the developers would reconsider ways to improve this one aspect of the game.

Best and Worst Game on The App Store

This game is by far one of the best and worse crime mystery/hidden object games available on the App Store. Visually it is amazing but the worst and most disappointing part is the amount of energy needed for every little thing as well as how long it takes to regenerate. I don’t believe it should cost so much for more energy when it’s utilized so quickly as well as the ridiculous and minimal energy you’re given after so long of waiting. Then when you’re in the middle of a hidden object scene and run out of energy, you have to spend all your regenerated energy again to do the same things you’ve already started before. It does not pick up exactly where you left off. For example, If you are in a hidden object scene and have already done a few tasks and found items but run out of energy, none of what you found before that is crossed out, stays crossed out so you have to waste the same regenerated energy to even try to get passed what you have already done. Why should it take 30 energy to watch a scene or open a door? There has to be a way to get free energy elsewhere. You look so long and hard for collectibles and when you finally find one you only receive 5 energy which does no good for the amount needed to do anything at all. This would be the perfect game if it offered free energy or daily spins or any incentives for how much energy it takes for tasks. Other than that, great visuals and presentation!

We all agree

This game is so fun but the character periodically needs energy and it throws off everything. I just walked in and saw the corpse but the moment is ruined because I need energy, and can’t progress until I have some. Just let us buy the game and not have to deal with the energy restrictions. Having to wait is really a bummer, but oddly it doesn’t matter if you don’t play for a day or a month, when you get back you will have earned the same amount of energy, which is lame.

Also, are just going to sit here and act like home girl doesn’t have the stickiest fingers we’ve ever seen? She’s asked to find a knife, but she’s actually taking your curry. Maybe if she ate some she’d have enough energy. The puzzles that make sense (like fixing the phone), those are good ones; but I can only play so many games of ISpy: robber addition. (I’m not going to lie and pretend I didn’t enjoy playing solitaire, I just don’t know what the point of it was).

That all being said, these characters are super fun. There’s one death from the first game I’m still upset about and I’m several games later, you start to care about these characters! (The animation is slowly declining in quality though, the first chapter gave each character much more detail, which I really appreciated. (Spoiler: Anna and Walter would have made a way better couple than Anna and Luigi, just gonna say that. But if you kill Luigi, imma be mad. )
