one star - paid $6.99 for unlock… doesn’t unlock???

This game is wonderful! I’m hooked! Great puzzles and storyline.

But I’m giving it one star because I paid to do the full-game unlock for $6.99 and when I clicked unlock, it takes me back to the homepage and says to unlock yet again. I even tried hitting the “Already paid?” button and same thing— takes me back to the home page. It’s so annoying and a dumb cycle. I’ve never paid money for a game before and now I know why. This is either a scam and I’m an idiot for thinking it wasn't, or there’s a bug there that needs to be fixed. Please address this ASAP.

As usual, the New York Mysteries are well done, sharp and clear in design, and not necessarily easy to maneuver through. The challenges are more than just HOP scenes, so you feel like you’re getting more for your money. Even in the ‘easy’ mode, the game is a good length. It’s especially nice to have an actual storyline to follow, where so many of these games fall so very short.
