Absolutely the best so far puzzle games

I have done the New York Mysteries 1-4 and am now on Lost Lands 1. For the last New York Mysteries, I bought their $6.99 version. I didn’t have to bother with paying for hints as I got stuck. Only on the 2nd Mysteries was I able to complete the whole thing with just a few hints. It is well worth it to me to pay for the paid versions. These games are well done and recommend them. Their website shows many of these games they have made. They are also a company out of Ukraine and I would gladly support a company from there and they are fantastic as well.

Great story & graphics but puzzles too easy

I have absolutely loved FIVE-BN STUDIOs games. I played all the Lost Lands (my favorite games!), Legendary Tales (my second favorite), and Darkness & Flame (my third fave). When I was finished with those, I was excited to play more games from the company but the others (New York Mystery & Legacy ones) haven’t lived up to Lost Lands or Legendary Tales. They have the same large map area where you go back to previous areas to finish things and great graphics, but the puzzles are WAY TOO EASY. For one, there are a bunch of puzzles where you just match 2 images (turn the blocks over & match the images). That’s fine for 1 puzzle but there were quite a few like that in these New York Mysteries and Legacy ones. For two, a lot of the puzzles just take no effort. For example, there were a few puzzles where you had to put the lines all in the center and I had just started moving 2 of them and BOOM, it was finished. I thought, well that was lucky. But it happened again just the same on other puzzles. If you don’t have to put any effort in and think about it, it’s not really fun IMHO. These are fine for someone who thinks the other games are hard or maybe just starting off with games like this. But, if you’re like me and have played a ton of games like these, I don’t think you’d find the puzzles very fun. The story and graphics are great though.

Love New York Mysteries, hate the “buy coins” con

This series of games is one of the best but I am giving it 3 stars because of the fact that the Hint and Skip don’t work unless you have coins. You start with 5 and if you are a really smart gamer that’s fine. But for less experienced players, it’s a problem. Some puzzles are just so repetitive and frustrating that I end up wanting to skip them but the game demands 10 coins to do that. Yes, you can get 30 coins for $2.99 but it’s the principle of the thing. I’m not a miser but I don’t feel like paying more for a game I already purchased. The game allows you to watch an ad to get a coin but cuts you off after four, essentially trying to force you to buy coins. No other games like this have monetized their hints/skips this way. I have no idea why the developers chose to do this but if they need more money, just charge more for the game in the first place.

Developer Response ,

This is a free-2-play version of the game. It cannont be bought. If you purchased it - it was another version of the game. Open your library and install the game from there. New York Mysteries 1 CE is a version by prepayment with all features included. But you left comment under f2p version which doesn't have unlimited hints and such, but have free access to the gameplay.
