Great game
by fancy thatt on 2019/12/13 17:56
It difficult but fun, I wish there was a better way to get rubies. The graphics are really nice but the game takes up a lot of space. I’m not on Facebook so it would be nice if those of us who are not on Facebook can get the same prizes as those who are.
Getting items for special events

by oreoxxxxxxx on 2019/12/13 16:36
I love this site. Therapeutic for me. The only problem I had was once after I had finished the puzzle ,the screen went black and didn’t come back. So I deleted the app and started all over. No biggie but thought you should know. That’s the only reason for the four instead of five stars

Hidden City Crystals Day 8
by Ladydi1231 on 2019/12/13 09:29
Day 8 game still not completely downloaded. 73% on iPad (free version). 46% on iPhone (paid version). Sent developer my internet info which performs great but I’ve received no response. I go through this each time there is an updated version. I have no problem downloading updates fir any other game or app. The other problem is I turn off music and sound EVERYDAY. the next day it is back in in both my iPad and iPhone. I like this game but the only thing I can do is gain points fir 8 days.
Great game
by ladyhawke7769 on 2019/12/13 04:18
The only thing I don’t like is that you can’t get into some of the game unless you have certain items other than that it’s very fun and addictive
What the ........???
by lkjhok on 2019/12/13 04:10
Recently after the lastest update noticed that after every game there’s an ad.....no kidding.....after every game. Seriously? It wasn’t this often in the past n was quite tolerable but now it’s really annoying me so much that I don’t want to play this game anymore. Please fix. Thanks.

Artifact Assemblers
by vit kid on 2019/12/12 18:14
I think it would be beneficial to your game to make the Artifact Assembler available to our friends to give as gifts! Please. We used get them as rewards for finding the secret items in each monthly challenges. Now we buy items in the curiosity shop. No Artifact Assemblers there.Thanks. Enable us as players to put them on our wish list.

There are many mini games within the game itself. The quality of this hidden adventure is very interactive.
Updates
by White Cracker93 on 2019/12/12 00:23
SERIOUSLY? Why does it take over 48 hours to upload the new updates? AGAIN I ask why does it take 3 to 4 days to download updates? AGAIN I ask why it takes so long to download. The game has been at 42% for the last 5 or 6 days now. As slow as it is, I don’t want to wait forever with the game open. I minimize it and move on to other games. It seems to me that should not affect the download, but it does.
Break the bank
by It's 5o'clocksomewhere on 2019/12/11 17:51
At first this game was fun, then as I advanced the more expensive it got. Everything needs 18 or more gems check price packages on gems..Very frustrating you get an app that is free but, and there’s always a but! Nothing is free. You can’t complete one level without having to purchase gems or whatever else, which by the way are tons of tools to use to complete a level...Of course all these games are in for the almighty dollar so this shouldn’t have been a surprise, still disappointed.
Anomalies and repeat items
by can,t send on 2019/12/11 15:31
Please get rid of the anomalies😩 First week and I’ve got duplicate items can’t even get to the next level unless you spend a ton moneyCompleted the first level started the second and awls I keep getting is the same ones for the first level not fun anymore

Takes to long to finish a quest. Rewards are minimal. I do like the challenges but hate when they get too hard that you just want to delete the game.

Beautiful graphics!
by Cypress TX Ric on 2019/12/10 15:50
Interesting games, but the constant push to buy tools, gems, coins, etc. is annoying. Having that option available without disrupting the game should be enough. Also, the acquisition of gems (rubies?) is virtually nonexistent. The time limit for advanced levels is not consistent with the level of difficulty for finding objects - a challenge is one thing, impossible is another. I'm not sure I'll continue with this level of frustration. The concept is great, but the fulfillment is tedious at best.
Great game

Phantom side game has lousy rewards
by rshelton452 on 2019/12/10 00:14
<newest review 12/19> I hate to complain but I’m still not real happy with the rewards in the side games, namely the first one for getting 30 objects. By the time I’ve acquired that many objects to win that reward, I’m more than likely done playing for a while so winning free energy for half an hour doesn’t do me any good unless I get to start the boost. To have it start automatically just doesn’t work for me, so again, there’s nothing there to make me want to play the side game. It actually takes quite a while to earn so many objects, especially when I can’t pick which places to play & am usually directed to areas I don’t play very much; I think the amount needed to win could be dropped down a little. <previous> I’m not changing my star rating, but the new(ish) side phantom game started again today. I have to say that the rewards/prizes offered for it don’t make me want to even bother playing it. Who wants something that summons the Illusion thing? I hate playing that one. I’d much rather have something to get rid of that anomaly. <previous>Thank goodness they reversed the layout changes in new update! I was so glad to see this reversal. The game looks SO much better this way, so I’ll put my stars back. Kudos to the devs that will fix something when they make a mistake. 👍 I haven’t spent any money on this game since that change was made, so I’ll go spend some now. 👏 This game *is* VERY beautiful though; G5 employs some amazing artists. Kudos & 5 🌟 to all the hardworking artists behind these gorgeous games. I’m sure I wouldn’t have continued playing so long without the amazing art. No way.
Usually love it
by petroliahoney on 2019/12/09 20:44
I have never had any problems with this game before but now it is stuck and won’t work at all. Where the ice queen comes in and wants help to decorate the homes of the citizens. It won’t do anything but start there and loop on the one thing. Cannot access any other part of the game. HELP

Information Overload
by Annika Hoffstatians on 2019/12/09 04:56
WOW!! Information overload is an understatement. I know this is an online game but the storyline, graphics, plots, promos, tools... etc, etc are so much to take in I almost have an anxiety attack when the clock is counting down because I’m afraid I didn’t read something I should’ve or utilize a tool that would’ve yielded greater rewards.... HOWEVER.... THIS IS BY FAR MY NEW FAVORITE ONLINE GAME... the graphics are brilliant, I say specific because they’re historically and/or century specific combined with Enchanted Fantasy. I wish I could go to gameplay and by a first edition players handbook... lol. It’s almost like if D&D, Wizard of Oz, and Sherlock Holmes had a ménage a’trois this would be the lovechild. I’ll probably ruin my vision playing too long at a time, but I’ll love every minute while doing so, I started 2 days ago and I’m almost at level 9... I’m still so ignorant idk if that’s good or bad progress but I will continue to find out.... thanks to developers who obviously loved Highlights mags when they were growing up... as did I... Kudos!!!!
Hidden City Hidden Object Game
by WWCFP1234 on 2019/12/09 01:09
Hidden City is by far the best hidden objects game I’ve ever played!!! The graphics are beautiful and the storyline is always changing keeping things new and interesting!!! I’ve been playing this for over 3 years and I’m completely addicted to it!!! If you love finding hidden objects and doing mini-puzzles with an original haunting theme then you’ll love Hidden City!!!

Download new events.
by Rockyridge2 on 2019/12/07 18:52
Downloads takes over a week to download. By the time it’s downloaded I’ve missed half the event. Not like that with my other games. Love the game but when it’s loaded for days/weeks I just stop playing.

I have had this game for many years now and I still really enjoy it. I love how simple it is and I can just hop on whenever. I also really like the story line and the monthly events are so cool. If you like mystery games and easy but not too easy I highly recommend this game.

by In Rio on 2019/12/07 03:56
This game has great graphics. I like the challenges and especially the mini games. Will not pay for extra money or rubies so the frequent pop ups for those do take away a lot from the game.
Having fun!
by cindy55374 on 2019/12/07 03:40
I’m enjoying the game. I do think the playing time should be longer before running out of energy.
Won’t download
by SugarQuilt on 2019/12/07 01:26
Game will not download newest update/version. Been playing for years and now unable to load and play gets to 99% in one place. But on other place it gets to9% then goes back to 0%. Don’t want to stop playing but I’m having to stop. Now I will lose all I’ve gained and paid for. THANKS ALOT !!!!

Not sure why it is happening but it takes as long as a day for the quest updates to load. I am still waiting for the Christmas quest to load. My device is only a year old. Very frustrating. I tried deleting and reinstalling but it still won’t load the new update. I am about to give up.
Takes forever for new scenes
by Ernestina42 on 2019/12/05 18:34
When you download new updates it takes days for them to actually download. No way to enjoy mini games for days, just frustrating waiting and waiting.

Update too slow!
by FL GatorGirl Lake County on 2019/12/05 02:38
Have been playing this game for a couple of years now!! All has been good up until the last 3 months. Glitches and game updates too slow. Unobtainable goals are set so likelihood of achieving rewards are reduced!!
Update doesn’t download
by Phoenix34578964632576 on 2019/12/05 00:40
You can’t say it’s an “Update” when it doesn’t download! And don’t tell me “Our tech team is aware and working on it” that is basically “Our development team didn’t do their job coming up with the update and we don’t care.” You also feel we don’t have the right to complain since it’s a free app. News flash everyone stops playing you’re out of a job.
Great Game
by Flow529 on 2019/12/04 22:24
This is my favorite game. The graphics are awesome and there is enough variety to keep it interesting. And customer service is the best. Wait until specials are offered, which is frequent, to get twice the rubies for the same price as when not on special.
Lots of Improvements
by Bloop61 on 2019/12/04 22:02
When I first started playing this game, I gave it three stars. Now I’ll give it five. They have done a lot to improve the game, especially in the last few months. There are a lot of options now on how you want to do different options in the game. It’s now my favorite game to play!
Progressive fun

Not happy
by toodles8201 on 2019/12/04 19:03
I was happy with the new update, until I keep having a lot of pop ups while I’m playing the game. Was trying to click on a snowman when something popped up and caused me to use 20 red diamonds. It happened so fast that I didn’t even see what it was and I didn’t know anything was bought. Until I saw diamonds go down. So I have no idea what was bought with that. I am Mad 😡 about that. And the adds I don’t mind, but they are popping up without a close button. That’s causing me to to go to the App Store way too many times. Soo what’s up with this?

Frustrating
by Missy295 on 2019/12/04 09:51
I love the game, but get very frustrated at how long it takes to achieve goals and earn energy, power nets or whatever to continue playing. I also don’t want to spend a ton of money I don’t have just to get extra things. The game was free to download, I was hoping it was going to actually be a free game.
Addictive game

Less Buggy
by girlinterrupted on 2019/12/04 02:50
UPDATE: Thankfully less buggy!!! Fun game with great graphics. Wish it was faster without having to pay for rubies, etc. but otherwise addictive. UPDATE: It’s been weeks and it’s still crashing when not on WiFi... FIX ASAP. Upgraded yesterday and by this evening there were tons of bugs. It keeps crashing. So frustrating.

by Ohmynena on 2019/12/03 22:52
I didn’t think I’d be this addicted to a game but I totally am. It has kinds of fun games to play besides looking for objects. It requires a lot of concentration & is a perfect brain game. Highly recommend!

Hidden city of shadows
by rgm64 on 2019/12/02 10:59
Great game, love the detail of the graphics only complaint I have is when you’re looking for objects, you don’t know what they look like and sometimes the object does not match up with the word I suggest at the end of the play of each game if you don’t complete it the game should highlight where the objects are at least so we can see what they look like other than that the game is great.
Fun game

Great game, beautiful graphics but...
by Sherry's o-pin-un on 2018/08/22 01:19
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 quests...it’s a huge town developers, why do we have to stay in the same place quest after quest?? Lastly would be the monster quests....you 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.
Beautiful frustrating Game
by kassata on 2018/10/03 21:09
The first thing that I have to say about this game is that the graphics are absolutely beautiful and the collections are really fun. I really love the Victorian-Gothic aspect of it and all of the beautiful is symbolism and that’s used throughout the game. There’s lots of areas to explore and lots of little mini games that are nice too. I like the cards if fate mini game that has your memory and the Crystal’s game that is a lot like bejeweled. There’s also a minesweeper type game as well. That being said the game is extremely challenging as you level up in a location. While I like the challenge it is almost impossible to beat some of the puzzles unless you use a tool or a cheat. Also the pay off is very small for collecting all of the keys to the chests that are related to the main quest that’s usually happening. One thing that I think is terrible is that as you get near the end of a collection for a quest you have to summon an “anomaly” to get the item that you need in order to complete the collection. That usually cost money in someway. It’s frustrating to have come that far and then have to spend money to go further in the game.
Fun game but hidden key quests disappear.
by shylady61 on 2019/07/02 15:04
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.
I have a couple of questions???
by Stacy L. Smith on 2018/03/28 03:24
I have a question,!?How can I update a version of Homescape which is supposed to be a free game with the option if you so choose to spend money to get more lives & or more of the little doohickey thingys that help you get through each level, however some thing popped up that said I must install the new version but fir some reason it’s not letting me because I don’t want to put more money in my account than I actually have that I know that I can spend. But it’s a free game that I already have installed on my phone so why can’t I just update the friggin thing without having to have some debit card? And or how can I go about updating it without having to have money in that account? I know I didn’t use a credit card because I don’t have any credit cards. And I also know that my debit card is valid because it’s a debit card however I just only keep the minimum balance in that account unless I have more money that I know that I can afford to spend. And I also know that I didn’t use some friggin Apple Pay Card so it shouldn’t be telling me that the card number I gave them is invalid because they said they would only charge me for purchases that I make. Thus if I’m not trying to purchase something that costs money then why is it that they are trying to charge my debit card by way of that particular game especially since all I’m trying to do is do what it said I had to do which is update the app.!?

Addicting.. When playable
by 2574mypinion on 2018/02/06 01:39
I'm truly addicted. The locations are artistic and the additional gameplay features like monsters and mini games have made this my favorite hidden object game. However, the gems come too slowly for a free player to enjoy it much at all, and the prices are too high to get any amount that would make a worthy difference in the game. Both the real $$cost of gem and coin packages and the game-currency cost of chests, treasuries, tools, boosts etc.. are too high to allow any satisfaction after dropping real dollars on pretend moneys that disappear so fast. Like I said though, I'm addicted and have three accounts. I only make purchases on two accounts and the truth is that the fifty dollars I've dropped so far on each of them hasn't brought me any farther in the game than my free account. Also, the game is a HUGE data hog upon opening new locations and especially when beginning new events. Lastly, I'm tired of seeing friends in my news feed starting the new events hours or even days before my game decides to let me in. It would be a great relief if the app store updates ACTUALLY updated the game or at least prompted the download of event content upon opening the game. The only way to get event content, it seems, is to uninstall and reinstall the game entirely and unless you have several gigs to spare or enjoy those nifty overage charges, it's just not worth it.
Plus and minus
by AbigaleNormal on 2019/08/02 22:51
On the plus side, this game is addictive. It’s fun to play! The graphics are gorgeous. There are a variety of variations and puzzles within the game And to make the game more interesting, there are new “events” and goals about once a month. The more “friends” you connect with in the game, the faster you progress. I’ve had the chance to talk to people from all around the world as I play. The downside. This game is addictive. It’s deliberately set up using psychological principals that are designed to get you to play (and buy) more. It is possible to play for free but progress will be much slower. There is very little in the way of FAQs. Mostly you will have to learn by playing or join one of the Facebook or “hidden” groups to learn how to play and get your questions answered. Also the game software is incredibly buggy!!!!! Constant glitches and problems playing and storing your info. Unless you have a lot of patience, this becomes very frustrating!! There is a link to report the problems but all you’ll get back is a form “letter” telling you they’ll look into it. If you don’t mind all the software problems, and have enough self-control not to spend too much money, the game is lots of fun.
Hidden secrets
by Princess4@1625 on 2017/09/17 14:51
Wow love it addicted to game. Wished more was like this. But I'm lowering my rating since I've been hacked my psw been changed and can't change it to be safe. With someone send request I cancel not to accept it then opened my apple I store it started downloading all of my games and it stated effected my Pokémon go that I play. My Pokémon pokedex is being deleted as we speak or as I type all picture are being gone and you can't recover it. I know from past hackers that send invites from Facebook to messager are the ones sending. It don't use messager so they are putting trackers and viruses on your excepts to take as new people. I don't use broswer for anything even Facebook. I'm seeing double the screen when I'm playing this game I'm see that up in corner I get different numbers of items need like last one was 11 and go to Chest it's 3 now the upper corner is 3 and the chest is 3 I haven't been able too make any of my collections to have finished cuz they took all of the ones I had for myself and left me 1. Now I can't change my psw every thing I try keeps telling me invalid password so they changed it on me too. I can't even go send for help on game cuz there's no way of doing it
Really fun game, but too expensive.
by 1Blondshell1 on 2019/05/30 17:25
This game is a lot of fun and addictive. The story lines are interesting and the graphics are really good. I would love to give this game a 5, but I can’t for a couple of reasons. It’s too expensive to play consistently and the ads are annoying. Since I play this game for entertainment, I don’t mind paying a little to play each month, but you do not get enough rubies for the amount you have to pay to make it worth it. When you level up, you only get 1 ruby... things cost multiple rubies. They almost make it impossible to play without spending money. A suggestion would be, if you’re going to make people spend to play, give them more for their money (especially when it comes to rubies). Or make things cost less. A great option that a lot of other games have is being able to buy unlimited supplies of things. An unlimited ruby supply option, would be great! With the ads, there is no amount of money you can spend to make them go away. I do spend money on this game and I still get long pop up ads that interrupt my game and make me miss some stuff. If people spend the money on your games, please stop the ads from interrupting them! These are also the reasons why I won’t look at any other G5 games... I can’t afford to.
Game used to be fun
by Cashpgall on 2018/10/23 17:09
Update: The more I play this game the more I am considering removing it from all of my devices. It is so completely riddled with nag screens that is very irritating to even play. Also, each time they do an update the game becomes more unstable and crashes a lot. Not to mention they put so many obstacles into completing each mini game, that it sometimes nearly impossible. About the only way to win some of the many games is to spend money, which I refused to do. It is no longer fun and I will be seriously consider getting rid of it. Original post: Love the game, but REALLY hate the push to get you into social media. Also I would much rather be given the option to buy the game and not have the constant having to close nag screens trying to get you to buy coin‘s jams etc. The constant nag screens really become a Major irritation. As far as gameplay it’s very fun and well laid out. It’s worth hours and hours of fun but could be so much more if it wasn’t for a constant nag screens and trying to push you into social media. Just put a price on it of about $30 and many ppl would be happy to buy. I have never, and never will buy the in app purchases. When it gets to the point where I can’t play anymore because of needing to purchase things in the game, then I just quit playing and find a different game
Fun game but several glaring usability bugs & errors
by scarletalphabet on 2019/02/21 14:07
I’d rate this 3.5 if I could. I enjoy this game and don’t mind spending some money on it but there are some extremely annoying issues. 1) in order to get your daily quest list you have to open, close, and re-open the game. All of the other daily bonuses are there when you open it the first time, but for some reason you have to do this weird dance to get the daily quest list every day unless you happen to have the game open at midnight. 2) Often times things will be in the way of what you need to click on. Like monsters will be standing in front of buildings you need to enter or chests that you need to click on, or a message on the bottom of the screen will be covering up something that you need to click on like a cell of the expedition game. 3) The new plea for you to connect to your contact list or Facebook friends in order to add to game friends is very obnoxious and in the way every time you go to your friends list to try and help out your in-game friends. If these were cleaned up I could easily rate this four stars. Or even higher if it was made for the new iPhone so that I don’t lose things behind the left edge of the screen when I play because of the iPhone screen cut out.
Mixed reviews
by Nutly4567 on 2018/08/16 10:52
I have mixed reviews on this game. The graphics, some games and storyline are great, but the difficulty level is too hard once you get to the upper levels. I’m at level 68, but some of the quests are so hard that you cannot get past them without buying diamonds to get items to help you. (i.e. The station). The only way I’ve found to get free diamonds is to level up. You have to search for items, but as you progress, the number of items you need to find increases or the time decreases, I’m not sure which one, but it’s sure harder than when I started. You can add “unknown G5 friends” and request items from them to help you, but they don’t always send you what your requesting. There are also special “events” for a limited time that they promote, but even at level 68, I have yet to be able to complete any of them due to the difficulty of the games as you progress through it. So, if you’re able to spend money on the game (which I’m not) or you’re a lot better than me at finding things quickly, you’d probably really enjoy it. For those of us who can’t afford it, you can progress and enjoy some of the games, but it’s somewhat frustrating working toward a goal you can’t reach.
Disappointed
by shadowsmom on 2019/08/12 11:59
UPDATE - thank you for fixing that flaw!! It was a lovely surprise to find it back on the side last night. I’ve updated my rating to 5 stars I have been playing this game for a few years now, and have seen a number of good updates and challenging quests. That is not the case with the latest update, though. The latest update made some key visual changes that are, quite frankly, an impediment to the game. The object list has been moved from the right side - where it was out of the way and not impeding the game sight - to the bottom of the screen overlaying the game. Sometimes the hidden objects are hidden UNDER the list! While the list itself is somewhat opaque, it is still a problem seeing the objects. I have had a few occasions where the hidden object is under a “tool”, or at the very right of it nearly off the screen. When the object is there and you tap to claim it, you end up (needlessly) tapping a tool as well. These are huge flaws that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. IMHO, that layout absolutely needs to be changed back to the old one.
Please make add free version
by SirenKnight on 2017/10/14 04:42
I don't mind the welcome screen pop up, but the constant pop ups are frustrating. I would happily pay 2.99 to play without pop ups. This game is a lot of fun and you can play for awhile and there are different things to do, and that's fun. However- I also play paranormal society. That game I can only play for 15 mins and I am out of energy and only have 2 goals, where this one there are so m any goals I don't bother to look at them much. I can't keep the threads for each set straight so I often don't even read them. The friends area seems off somehow and I think it could be more friendly. I don't think I need to know every trivial achievement my lvl 85 friend makes, but I would like to be able to actually send gifts and can't seem to figure that out. I get error messages that say I've already sent them when I haven't. I would also buy gems if there were more fun/ reasonably priced packages. Especially since I can get duplicate sets/collections long before I can get the "assembly materials" needed to combine them.
Way too expensive
by Jamsjmg on 2017/10/08 18:58
I've read a lot of the reviews and see what they're talking about. Why is everything in"download queue"???? The game is great but soooo expensive I finally had to delete it then tonight I reinstalled and I get this download queue message and all things floating are covered in a black devil so you can't see what it is. I was addicted and spent a small fortune in a VERY short time but saw my bill and got a reality check resulting in getting rid of it. If you need those silly rubies for every other thing in order to progress to the next level then G5 needs to occasionally give them as a reward for completing something in half the time given or for not using the magnifying glass to help--something! This is just outrageously expensive to play. Too bad, too, because it is one of the best I've seen for a long while. Sorry G5, you lost a good customer with your greed. No more lining your coffers. Enough is enough!! Have deleted twice and go back. Spent TONS of money and it still doesn't give credit when collections are completed plus now it wants you fo visit or help friends in daily quests...I DONT want friends. Stupid requirement and the ads at the end of each task is so annoying as others have pointed out
Hidden city
by SupermomG on 2018/03/09 17:46
I have played this game for a long time, I agree it is way to expensive but the graphics are beautiful! Now comes the but I love a challenge in finding the objects but in several of your graphics on the newer ones they are so cluttered that in the time length you can not find very many items and much use your gems to buy the items that find multiple objects to clear the board, and if you do not clear it you get nothing. Maybe younger eyes and fingers can do better, I don't know, I just wish there was an old person version, that gave us more time or fewer objects. I also think in the pairs board you should say 10 matching pairs and let us pick out the pairs instead of you giving us a list. Also I find it very unfair that in one board the umbrella is a closed umbrella, on another board it is a open miniature umbrella and on another board it is a drawing of an umbrella on the wall, for older people this becomes very confusing. And lastly I agree that you do not listen to what people write in these reviews and you delete the least favorite ones after a very short time because I wrote one about a week ago and I can not find it.
Love/hate
by Daytimer Addict on 2018/01/24 23:38
I love this game because it’s challenging. But, I hate it because some of the scenes (the plane, holiday school) are so hard, you can almost never win them. Other scenes are fun because you eventually conquer them and then move onto something new. But these two scenes seem to be the keys to the holy grail, and I can only win periodically. The other thing I dislike is that it takes so much to get to play one of them. I can only play seriously about 2x per day due to losing energy and consequently not being able to play the sub-scenes to get enough rings. Listen - if I’m hooked on your game and can actually play, and get somewhere, I’ll play a lot more, and consequently, you will have more opportunities to get me to buy something. If I know I can only play twice a day for 15 minutes, that’s all the time you get from me. I’m willing to support in-game purchases if there’s an exciting thing awaiting me around the corner. This game is just too hard and slow right now. Give us a chance to love it enough to thrown money at you.
Constant pop ups/adds
by Pamzorz on 2017/09/26 19:15
The adds are insane. There are 5 adds to close on startup, and god forbid you miss that X to close it. Between mini-games is a constant G5 screech of “please please play our other games!” No, guys, your other games are garbage, I tried them, stop nagging. I mean, really, invitations from other players that can’t be deleted? I don’t want to stare at the notification that tells me I have “gifts” when it’s actually 5 invitations to play another one of your games that I have ALREADY TRIED AND DID NOT LIKE. Not to mention those sneaky adds that appear as you hit the OK button after a level. Did you think I would go ‘oh okay I guess I will download it since you just forced me to sit through the App Store loading screen.’ No, I just close the game in frustration. I made an in app purchase in hopes the ads would stop, worst 99¢ I ever spent. I would spend more if there wasn’t so much stress involved with just opening the game. If you can get past the constant popup stream, it’s a great game. Lots of mini games. Love the goal setting. Play it at home because they’ll decimate your data with surprise streaming video.
Losing Interest
by SavingQueen on 2018/11/25 06:17
Ya hi! Can we lose the Illusions Anomaly already? I get that it’s new and you’re all excited about it, but I’m starting to lose interest after 2 years of playing this game because of it. 30 of my 40 locations are currently that dumb anomaly, and I have several times watched a location that I did NOT just play turn from a normal status over to the dumb new anomaly! And they never change!! I’m obviously not playing that anomaly frequently... because it’s not that great and I can only imagine it takes over my entire board because you force us to buy the anomaly fixer with gems! So ok, you want money... do the dozens of pop up adds not suffice? I have completed multiple seasonal challenges and won their avatars without having to pay a dime, which is fantastic, but I’m hardly started on the 5th level of this current Autumn challenge because I’m becoming so upset by my location options all being the same boring anomaly. Mix it up. Recognize when your players really hate certain anomalies or don’t do well at certain ones. Reward your players with the fix to the anomaly and don’t all of a sudden require money for this kind of thing.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS GAME
by Lisbug101 on 2019/10/24 13:06
Not spending more money on it! I have being playing the game for a while now! On the moment theme Halloween I was almost 5 starts got all stickers (THAT I HAD TO BUY), I wanted to download the game to my laptop as well ( BIG MISTAKE) not only on the computer none of the progress was loaded, but also all of my progress on my iPhone was gone!! It says that I have 0 stickers, 0 stars! Only one totem! Which is ridiculous because I’m level 72! It looks like they don’t care neither.! I contacted support, followed they instructions to not use the app ( until further notice) 2 days later they emailed me and said it was fix. When I logged in, surprise NOTHING WAS FIX! Everything was the same as I left it! They only about taking your money! Some of totem gets updated by using certain items ( THAT YOU HAVE TO BUY) well I lost all progress will need to buy 3,000 more to update ( good joke) is a shame that companies still take advantage of customer and deceive them in those way!
Information Overload
by Annika Hoffstatians on 2019/12/09 04:56
WOW!! Information overload is an understatement. I know this is an online game but the storyline, graphics, plots, promos, tools... etc, etc are so much to take in I almost have an anxiety attack when the clock is counting down because I’m afraid I didn’t read something I should’ve or utilize a tool that would’ve yielded greater rewards.... HOWEVER.... THIS IS BY FAR MY NEW FAVORITE ONLINE GAME... the graphics are brilliant, I say specific because they’re historically and/or century specific combined with Enchanted Fantasy. I wish I could go to gameplay and by a first edition players handbook... lol. It’s almost like if D&D, Wizard of Oz, and Sherlock Holmes had a ménage a’trois this would be the lovechild. I’ll probably ruin my vision playing too long at a time, but I’ll love every minute while doing so, I started 2 days ago and I’m almost at level 9... I’m still so ignorant idk if that’s good or bad progress but I will continue to find out.... thanks to developers who obviously loved Highlights mags when they were growing up... as did I... Kudos!!!!
Hidden City Review
by linlu1947 on 2019/11/12 03:35
I have been playing this game for quite awhile now. I enjoy some parts of it, but I am thinking about quitting it. It has grown very expensive for a game. I get focused on completing the challenges, which requires a lot of time and money. The graphics are beautiful, although the stories are a little strange. I get frustrated when it takes too many tries to get an object. Also sometimes something you are trying to find on the screen is obscured by monsters or the banners with the location names or some general feature like a shrub. I find I often need just a little more time to complete the game, but when I can’t I have to use some alternative that costs money in one way or another. Occasionally there are technical screw-ups like an object you are looking for that does not appear in the location until you use one of the aids for finding objects or you hit an object for matching with another, but it won’t disappear, causing you to lose the energy you used to play. There is nothing you can do yourself to fix or compensate for those situations.
Addicting, but could be better
by RI2005USA on 2017/09/28 13:45
I've been playing just about two weeks I think, and I find it quite an addicting game. However, it is very difficult to complete collections due to low drop rate of chargers. Not enough experience gained from expelling monsters around the city, especially considering the amount of time it can take to acquire the weapons necessary to do so. Also, you are only given short bursts of play because of the amount of time to restore energy vs. energy needed to complete rooms/quests. You can play a lot faster if you spend money, which I'm sure is the developers main goal. After all, they have to make money. I just wish I could play longer at a time, and make better progress. Overall, I enjoy the game, it's a decent premise, and I wish there were more games that were just like it. The other hidden object games aren't similar enough for me to enjoy. Worth it for a free game, in my opinion!
Developers are skewing the game to bilk players!
by Thisby on 2018/01/02 18:38
The crystals mini game is skewed to only let you get to the third level then it is impassable without having multiple “power tools” of every type to win every single game. They skew the statistics as well to inflate the success rate of that mini game with those of their expedition one to make the crystals game stats seem easy. This is not the usual gem or candy game that is passable on other sites. These developers are underhanded in their tracking of the game and in the game setup to force players (as much as they can) into spending money and apply even more pressure to do so by making special game events nearly solely dependent on playing and passing hundreds of crystals mini games to participate in the majority of the special event deals. They deliberately do this but make it seem like everyone has a fair chance which in such a rigged game only the wealthy can succeed. The developers are deceitful and practice the ultimate in poor gamesmanship or else they would revamp crystals for the masses by making it winnable like it’s contemporaries on other sites or offering a feature for a player to opt to level down.
Ads Ruin the Game Experience
by Diamond*Girl on 2017/10/12 17:19
I've been a playing HC for almost 3 years because the hidden object scenes are great, along with the well-designed graphics and events. HOWEVER, the pop-up ads after EVERY play or battle with monsters is ridiculous, not to mention the number of unsolicited invites from friends who unknowingly download a game and trigger an invite to all their friends (I know, because I foolishly tried this once and got blasted by friends for sending them invites, which I didn't do knowingly). This is SPAM and is totally unethical to falsely send unsolicited advertisements from other players without permission! Worse, in order to delete those unwanted invites, you have to click on the invite, wait for it to load...click the "x" and then repeat the same process before you get the delete button. By the time you clear all the invites each day, you've wasted a ridiculous amount of time. Writing to G5 makes no difference, because they must get enough hits to make it worth the complaints. Really too bad, because this is ruining the game experience and guaranteed to make me never try another G5 game again.
I hate the necessity of friends!
by CricketKiller1992 on 2019/04/27 13:32
Edit: So besides the friends thing (which is still so glitchy!) now you had to complete about 30 boggarts anomalies on approximately 25 days, I’ve played each day, several hours to collect the whole mission stickers, only came across 3 boggarts the whole time! It’s ridiculous that one of the requirements can’t be met because the anomaly won’t show up! Of course you can summon it, but -if you play you know this- it should just show itself after a while, so there’s a scam or a big problem with the app. So, this used to be a great game, and I do play it daily, but since they started this “you need friends to complete missions,” I just don’t get it: ok, so you want to force this on us, fine! But can you at least make the connection with those friends stable! I have many of them now, and I’m trying to visit them to “follow” the rules and get results on this season theme, but it freezes, I’ve already reloaded the game 5 times because of this problem! So you need us to visit our friends, but if we have to many what? We have to waste endless time loading and reloading these “friends games” so we can “help” them... I hate this!
Fun but Greedy little app
by ryocg on 2018/08/06 00:06
So, I’ve been playing this game for about six months but am now super annoyed by it. I know apps need to make money and I have made some purchases but, come on, this game is so difficult to play now unless you spend tons of money on those dang rubies. Anomalies, everywhere, all the time and they never reward you with the tools to banish them. I’ve got monsters everywhere but he** if they reward you with the tools to fight them. Then the ads, omg the ads! You win and they pop up and block you from seeing your rewards. This game has gotten so frustrating now. Sometimes I just log on for days to collect the daily rewards so I can actually get something done when I sit down and play. I am not going bankrupt over your little game. I feel sorry for those that do. Needless to say the game is beautiful. It would be nice to purchase it once and get all the tools you ever need. At least give us a break, you have so many ads obviously you’re also making money there. I don’t think I’ll ever download another G5 game.
Greed is too much
by bhggxdd on 2018/08/27 15:53
The graphics are beautiful but G5 is much too greedy. Rubies are necessary unless, perhaps, you are incredibly good at finding objects that are nearly totally blended into the scene. The only significant way to get them is to buy them. They are used to buy tools that help find objects in scenes. A major attraction to me of this game is it gives tasks that have you visit scenes to collect certain objects. Everything in the game generates objects needed for a collection and objects needed to combine the collection. After getting the 5 objects for a collection you need 2 to 10 of each of 4 objects needed to combine. A new task won’t start until you combine the collection. BUT some items that are needed to combine different collections are really rare in the game. You really need to spend rubies to get the ones you don’t have! I currently have 6 or 7 collections that I need about $40 to buy what I need. I might have 90 instances of objects where I need 2 for 2 of the collection objects. And I might have 2 of another one that I need 10 for one collection, and 5 each to complete two more collections. I will never look at another game by this company.
Frustrating Waste of Tools
by jrirons on 2019/08/09 17:58
While I enjoy the game, it’s frustrating when you finally get 15 pendants and you have enough energy to search the scene. You have to find two of each object. I was on the last object, I found one and my time was running out. I used a magnifying glass and it showed me the one I already found. I tried again, again it showed me the one I had already found. I tried the compass and it pointed to the one I already found. I wasted three tools and still didn’t find the last object or complete the scene. I now have to find 15 pendants again and wait for my energy to fill. I think this should be an easy fix. If you’ve found an object, the tools should help you find the other one you’re looking for. Updated August 9: I’m reluctant to download the latest update. The last one put word bubbles at the bottom of the screen, obscuring many of the items you’re looking for. Only 4 clues are available to search for which makes it take longer to complete the task. Once the words are placed on the right side again, then I’ll update.
Really Enjoying!
by Blitzed on BB on 2017/09/28 16:46
So much I like about this game...the guided beginning steps, the daily treasures, the quests, various ways of searching the same place so it's never boring, the increasing difficulty where I sometimes lose all the items I'd gained because I ran out of time, etc. My favorite is comparing the scene side-by-side to find what's different. I also enjoy finding two of the same. Some items to note: - It would be great if you'd stop making certain items in the station white...it's impossible to see (literally). - Could we either zoom in more to the city on our iPads or make it so we don't have to scroll? One of the things I love about using my iPad is the not having to scroll so much...it should all be on one screen. - Monsters often hide treasures and you can't get to it until they move. - Many treasures require you to go someplace that isn't unlocked for another 50+ levels...can it start recognizing what level we're at and allowing us to only go to places we've either already unlocked or are 1 level away? - Items don't match even when doing the shadow find or two of the same. You could get used to even finding something in words then it doesn't look the same the first time an anomaly of some sort appears. For example, a heart could be a carved heart into a wooden object or what looks like a piece of a necklace.
Diappointed
by BlackOpalPearl on 2019/10/22 23:55
I have played this game and have downloaded to several of my devices. In the last couple of years the bug fixes or lack there of have gotten worse. This is the second time this year that I have had to completely start this games over due to the time stops working, won’t upgrade my totems, can’t collect coins, takes my coins, cannot enter all locations, and can’t receive rewards. This has been an ongoing issue and after all this time it still isn’t fixed. I have tried saving it to my cloud, and it hasn’t saved my game yet. The aesthetics for the games were fixed, but not the major issues for me were addressed. I loved this game and really enjoyed playing on all the levels that the game allowed me too, but now I have to move on and delete and not turn back. I’ve seen the maintenance, and the updates, but they are just not working properly after a certain amount of time or when you reach a certain level. The reason I gave it one star is because I’ve had to start all the way over three times, and this last time was less then a month ago. Farewell hidden objects
You listened ... well ... kinda
by V Tap on 2019/08/11 04:07
UPDATE: Hoooraayyy! Thank you G5 for listening and changing the format back so the Godzilla sized word bubbles and tools are no longer in the search area. Plus giving us the list of 5 items to search for instead of 4! In return, I’ve restored my 5 star rating! Keep up the great work! PREVIOUS REVIEW: This is a searching game and the latest update with HUGE word bubbles blocks large parts of the search area! What genius thought this is a good idea? From looking at comments & reviews left since this update came out, its pretty obvious your players hate this and limiting it to 4 items on the list is a terrible idea too. Please make it so the search area is clear for searching. Seems so obvious! Otherwise, the graphics are stunning, stories interesting and games are fun. Just please do away with the stupid screen-hiding monster word bubbles. It’s especially bad on the phone.
G5: Would get much higher rating but....
by Weatherwise999 on 2018/12/16 14:12
I love the game aspects of the only G5 game I've installed from them on my iPhone: Hidden Cities. What keeps this a three star rating is that the game has a tendency to kick you out or freeze on you while loading the ads that pop up frequently as you play. I would get more G5 games like it but don't because I'm assuming the problem is persistent across their games, and this would happen no matter which you download. It's not uncommon for me to have to restart the game several times a day, and if I want to play for an extended period of time, several times an hour. I don't know if this is a server issue or if the ads have something programmed into them that does this, but either way there are days I really contemplate whether the game is worth the trouble. So come on, G5--fix this issue or it may cost you this player, and likely future ones as well, because I can't recommend a G5 game with a clear conscience unless I add a warning about these issues.
I get the ads but...
by Cghjucfj on 2018/01/08 01:25
Why must the video ads take so long to just load - even when I'm on a high speed wifi network ? Then I have to wait for the delete X to appear. THEN an image ad for the same game I just deleted appears I just selected delete because I am not interested in that game. An image ad of the same game will not change a player' mind and I seriously doubt the player hit the delete X by mistake. And once you get past both ads, the rewards you've just won are already off the screen and into their respective locations. As players, we want to see those rewards added, that's part of the satisfaction of playing any game. IF YOU INSIST ON RUNNING A SLOW LOADING VIDEO AD FOLLOWED BY AN IMSGE AD, WHY NOT DELAY THE REWARDS BEING DISTRIBUTED UNTIL AFTER THE ADS HAVE EITHER RUN THEIR COURSE OR BEEN DELETED BY THE PLAYER ? Both Sides Win !!! I get you want you generate more revenue by getting players to play more of your games, but there's the soft sell approach and the sledgehammer approach. Judging by other reviews, the latter approach may not be working.
Creative but
by shalhevet!!!!! on 2019/07/29 21:19
After playing for more than 3 years I removed the game completely. Beautifully designed, super creative, kudos to the design team, lots of freebies. Didn’t mind paying for rubies and such. So my frustration was/is it takes quiet a lot to move forward on levels. Especially the crystal/ 3 match game( which was my favorite) I shouldn’t have to play 85 times just to move 1%. Then you added the anomaly. I felt cheated. The last quest/event that I enjoyed was the Pier and Angela’s Park. Every quest after that was just to difficult, dark and creepy and weird music. I also loved the cad game but such little time to play it. I didn’t care to play all the quests, just became too repetitive and have to search for the needed keys or whatever to play the event. Too long for quest, too long to move forward, too little time to finish each quest/game. Felt cheated/rigged when playing the crystal game. I was on level Vl forever. So I quit the game.
Fun but costly
by Etherealuj on 2017/09/17 22:36
It's a challenging, fun game to play. It's addictive. My main complaints are that the time regenerates so slowly, and even if you collect everything necessary for a collection, it's almost impossible to get the last item that will give you the rewards you deserve, unless you want to spend real money! I also find it annoying that there are too many times when I just can't find the last item on my list when I'm at a location. It makes me believe that the item really isn't there. One way to remove my doubt would be to highlight the missing item so I know it's really there, and that the developer isn't just trying to get me to spend money for a tool that would find items automatically. The developer has no problem telling you that if you just had more tools (spend some money), you would have a faster, easier time finding what you're looking for.
Mildly expensive
by michaelhokama on 2019/04/07 05:11
If I were better at finding hidden objects, I wouldn’t have to spend so much money buying rubies to buy tools and collection items. I have a lot of coins, but they’re not much use for anything. The parts of collections appear very erratically because some sets I have 15 of one-fifth, but only one of two-fifths of it, and I don’t get help from my “neighbors”. The graphics are very pretty, but there’s no time to admire anything since there’s such a short time limit on each scene you’re forced to focus on the details and not the whole. And some of those details require so much good eyesight too. Definitely a game for the youthful. The latest update where the building labels keep popping up is pretty annoying. It’s not that complicated a town layout. Once you’ve picked out the five landmark buildings you like, the rest should lie low unless you specifically ask to look at them.
Do not get suckered in!!! Don’t start!
by leenjaweezy on 2019/08/26 14:02
I like playing this game but these guys try to FORCE you to spend money constantly. Some of the games are super hard with not enough time or hint options (of course without buying more) & they only give you a certain amount of energy to be able to play to begin with without buying more. You win prizes from monsters but when there’s a choice - every time, the one I choose has nothing I need but the other 2 ALWAYS do & of course you have to purchase those! And then there’s a little ghost game and as soon as I get seven away from winning a prize they only allow the ghosts to be at a location that requires 127 things of energy. Again they only give you like 200 every 12 hours so really you’re going to force me to buy more or use up all of mine which won’t even take me to the final prize?!! & this game ends in an hour where I won’t have time to build more energy so would have to buy more. That is just rude and ridiculous. I actually hate this game or I should say I like the game but not the money-hungry people behind it.
New update is impossible
by Momo927777 on 2018/08/07 07:04
I’ve been playing for awhile now and thought several times about leaving a review complaining about your greediness. Obnoxious ads pop up that have to be exited out of twice and will crash my iPad causing me to lose all of the rewards from whatever scene I just searched. You make it impossible to earn rubies which are the only things you can use to buy objects, meanwhile I have almost 600,000 coins that I’ve earned that I can’t do anything with because I’ve unlocked all of the scenes. The new update, however, it what finally inspired me to leave a review. The scene is impossible with the flowers and tiny details. Not only are the incredibly minuscule keys impossible to find, but the regular objects are difficult as well. I’ve tried the same silhouettes mode 5 times now and still am losing every single time because I can’t figure out what some of the silhouettes are or where they are located. I have not had nearly this much trouble with any other location. You guys really messed this one up. Hope you figure it out for next month’s scene.
So far, so good!
by dnmjrc81811 on 2018/07/08 19:51
I’m only writing this review right now to finish a quest and get the free gems. Haha. I will update my review once I’ve been playing for longer than 24 hours; and, I’ve actually had enough time to experience the game long enough to give a fair review. So far, however, I am pleased with the gameplay, graphics, etc. I’ve tried MANY of the hidden objects games, and I ALWAYS end up deleting them after a couple days, other than one other game that I’ve been playing for a month, now. All of the other games end up being too cheesy, boring, impossible to play without spending real money (which I REFUSE to do), or just downright terrible. However, so far—this game seems like it might be my second “keeper”. Haha. Like I said, I’ll update my review after I’ve had enough time to actually play the game long enough to be able to give a fair and accurate review. So far, so good, though! 😊
Game request overload
by Gagibeaner on 2017/11/23 00:31
I wish there was a way to block game requests for other games. For each one received, I must click on the request, wait for it to load, X out, click on the request AGAIN, wait for it to load, and then delete the request. If each request takes almost a full minute to delete, and you received 10-15 requests a day, it makes playing the game very cumbersome. Also, the app crashes every time I go to the werewolf lair which makes completing my task list impossible. Every time I send feedback within the game, I get an error message. The game is still fun and I don't know why everyone is complaining about spending money. Im at level 97 and have never spent a penny nor have I encountered a task that was impossible to complete for free. Also, it would be great if you could filter the newsfeed to show item requests only. Gotta help out those friends!!
No update
by Deziz World on 2017/12/03 21:33
This game is just okay. It’s a good way to pass a little time unless you spend real money. It seems to take forever to replenish energy and the higher you get the more energy it takes to play a scene. As for updates, they’re really slow. Most of the time, shutting down my ipad and restarting will allow the game to start an update. However, the latest update for Christmas won’t load at all. I still have options left over from Thanksgiving, but no way to complete them since I can no longer earn the special tokens to enter the site for searching. Since I’ve completed all the regular scenes, I wait for the event updates in order to play. But, if I can’t update, then I start way behind and don’t have enough time to complete an event. I’m a casual player and not willing to spend more than a dollar or two on a game at any time. I do hope I can get the Christmas update before I get too frustrated and just delete this game.
Way too many ads
by ChrisRCaron on 2018/04/05 12:59
The game itself is fun and engaging but they just put too many ads for other games in your face while playing. Just starting the game presents you with three ads requiring action: 1) A splash screen telling you about all the most popular G5 games (apparently every single one of their games is the most popular) with a Continue to Game button, 2) A video ad for one of G5’s many games that must load over the internet before allowing you to close it with one click of an X in the top right corner then a second click of an X in the splash screen for the game, and 3) An ad disguised as a friend activity, telling you about a friend’s level or other accomplishment in yet another G5 game and offering to let you download that game too, again requiring an X to be clicked. Then there are the regular video ads as in #2 above after every 3 or 4 puzzles you complete. Cut back on the ads and this game could be a 4 or 5 Star.

I will say, for an iOS game, it really is a fun game with excellent colors and graphics. The story line is a bit much for as many as there are at one time but still a great game. The only issue I’m having is that with work/kids/life, there is no way to collect all the keys needed to open chests unless I sit and play this game furiously and that’s not gonna happen. The idea of the little snowmen was perfect. In the beginning, you could find & tap them to collect keys/rings, which is more realistic, but after a while, they stop. No good..to the one who created it, you need to fix this for us busy ppl so we can continue to enjoy the game, otherwise, I will quit my in-app purchasing. What’s the point of playing if the busy folks like myself will never receive a new prize, totem or amulet? There’s no fun in that. It needs to be fair. Until it’s fixed, I will not recommend this game. Too much to collect & not enough time to win anything.. ~Disappointed Mom
Generous
by A-$$$ on 2017/11/29 04:50
Now that in app purchases are the norm for “free games” coupled by the creators making it near impossible to advance without making a purchase I have to say that the creators/developers are super generous with the distribution of energy/items needed to advance. If you really are looking for a quicker way to accumulate items you can always add friends. I love being able to add friends that are actively playing rather than bothering my FB friend/family. The community is great at fulfilling wishlist items. The developers keep it interesting with different seasonal themed events. I have experienced zero glitches, crashes and the ads aren’t as annoying as other games. Only appearing when launching the app. I have purchased rubies because sometimes the levels can be hard and personally I hate not completing levels ☺️
Fun Game but Frustrating
by zwoman21 on 2019/07/21 23:14
This a really fun game, especially with the improvements, however, it can get extremely frustrating having to go into the event room over 10x and still unable to obtain the item. I understand the game needs to challenging but it shouldn’t take you days & 10x plus & still not able to obtain the item needed. Even using boots, you still are unable to obtain the item. Even more frustrating is the the expedition mini game. There is no strategy for this mini game it’s more like a 50/50 chance of completing just one game or by chance. Also, there is too much time between the totems. Once every 24 hrs takes too long, especially if you are further along in the event... Lastly, why are you unable to send gifts from the previous event once you begin another event?? Like I said this is a fun game but can get extremely frustrating at times...
Graphics - 100; satisfaction level 3
by PedestalGirl on 2019/05/25 21:42
I agree with others who say how amazing the graphics are. It's truly a work of art with the lifelike human characters, the backgrounds, and the objects to be found. My frustration comes, as others have said, with the need to spend real cash money to advance beyond the first three levels of any quest. And another big turn-off, at Level Five on a quest, is the need to find the special item in an Illusions anomaly. But, this anomaly hasn’t been available for the last 15 games I’ve played. It keeps coming up with other anomalies which means I have to keep pumping thru other areas to get enough special items to go back to play in the special room. I get that the developer is in the game to make money but don’t turn people off so close to the end. I'll drop the game before I shell out real money to play thru the special room to finally get to the anomaly that has the special item.
Enjoy the game but...
by Diamondmine123 on 2017/09/24 23:59
I really enjoy the game, but it is frustrating when as you advance or finish a new series, the amount of energy required to enter that area jumps from 30 to 70. That is ridiculous. There is no reason for the energy amount to go so high. It's bad enough that to complete something requiring special items to get in, that they jump by 5 each time you gain a level. The other issue is not being able to find the items needed to complete a collection. When you click search to find it, and it points at an areas that isn't even available to you yet, that's annoying. I will not enter an site that requires 70 or 100 energy points to play, that is a waste of energy, especially when you make an object impossible to find. Fix the game, and people will enjoy it more. And no, I'm not buying anything. I'll wait for the energy to restore if I have too. That is absurd!
Frustration
by bcrsteve on 2018/05/29 06:19
The game itself was fun to play in the beginning but it became apparent that if you want to move to the higher levels you’ll have to spend money. In addition, advertising another game while I’m trying to see my rewards after finishing a task is thoughtless as we can’t see the results. We miss key information because of this thoughtless. The game continues to play while we’re stuck watching a game advertisement. When this happens, it’s so frustrating that I stop playing the game. Please remove it. We become accustom to the appearance of objects while playing the initial levels. Then we’re suddenly greeted with a complete change in appearance and size of said objects when starting the higher levels. New objects are introduced using names that we’ve never seen. When storylines expire, we lose days of sign in bonuses because of delays in starting the next one. We told we’re rewarded with two avatars but only get one. The scenes are cluttered with needless junk making it difficult to find what we’re suppose to.

Great game
by fancy thatt on 2019/12/13 17:56
It difficult but fun, I wish there was a better way to get rubies. The graphics are really nice but the game takes up a lot of space. I’m not on Facebook so it would be nice if those of us who are not on Facebook can get the same prizes as those who are.

I love this site. Therapeutic for me. The only problem I had was once after I had finished the puzzle ,the screen went black and didn’t come back. So I deleted the app and started all over. No biggie but thought you should know. That’s the only reason for the four instead of five stars

Hidden City Crystals Day 8
by Ladydi1231 on 2019/12/13 09:29
Day 8 game still not completely downloaded. 73% on iPad (free version). 46% on iPhone (paid version). Sent developer my internet info which performs great but I’ve received no response. I go through this each time there is an updated version. I have no problem downloading updates fir any other game or app. The other problem is I turn off music and sound EVERYDAY. the next day it is back in in both my iPad and iPhone. I like this game but the only thing I can do is gain points fir 8 days.
Great game
by ladyhawke7769 on 2019/12/13 04:18
The only thing I don’t like is that you can’t get into some of the game unless you have certain items other than that it’s very fun and addictive
What the ........???
by lkjhok on 2019/12/13 04:10
Recently after the lastest update noticed that after every game there’s an ad.....no kidding.....after every game. Seriously? It wasn’t this often in the past n was quite tolerable but now it’s really annoying me so much that I don’t want to play this game anymore. Please fix. Thanks.

Artifact Assemblers
by vit kid on 2019/12/12 18:14
I think it would be beneficial to your game to make the Artifact Assembler available to our friends to give as gifts! Please. We used get them as rewards for finding the secret items in each monthly challenges. Now we buy items in the curiosity shop. No Artifact Assemblers there.Thanks. Enable us as players to put them on our wish list.

Updates
by White Cracker93 on 2019/12/12 00:23
SERIOUSLY? Why does it take over 48 hours to upload the new updates? AGAIN I ask why does it take 3 to 4 days to download updates? AGAIN I ask why it takes so long to download. The game has been at 42% for the last 5 or 6 days now. As slow as it is, I don’t want to wait forever with the game open. I minimize it and move on to other games. It seems to me that should not affect the download, but it does.
Break the bank
by It's 5o'clocksomewhere on 2019/12/11 17:51
At first this game was fun, then as I advanced the more expensive it got. Everything needs 18 or more gems check price packages on gems..Very frustrating you get an app that is free but, and there’s always a but! Nothing is free. You can’t complete one level without having to purchase gems or whatever else, which by the way are tons of tools to use to complete a level...Of course all these games are in for the almighty dollar so this shouldn’t have been a surprise, still disappointed.
Anomalies and repeat items

Takes to long to finish a quest. Rewards are minimal. I do like the challenges but hate when they get too hard that you just want to delete the game.

Beautiful graphics!
by Cypress TX Ric on 2019/12/10 15:50
Interesting games, but the constant push to buy tools, gems, coins, etc. is annoying. Having that option available without disrupting the game should be enough. Also, the acquisition of gems (rubies?) is virtually nonexistent. The time limit for advanced levels is not consistent with the level of difficulty for finding objects - a challenge is one thing, impossible is another. I'm not sure I'll continue with this level of frustration. The concept is great, but the fulfillment is tedious at best.
Great game

Game seems pretty fun
Phantom side game has lousy rewards
by rshelton452 on 2019/12/10 00:14
<newest review 12/19> I hate to complain but I’m still not real happy with the rewards in the side games, namely the first one for getting 30 objects. By the time I’ve acquired that many objects to win that reward, I’m more than likely done playing for a while so winning free energy for half an hour doesn’t do me any good unless I get to start the boost. To have it start automatically just doesn’t work for me, so again, there’s nothing there to make me want to play the side game. It actually takes quite a while to earn so many objects, especially when I can’t pick which places to play & am usually directed to areas I don’t play very much; I think the amount needed to win could be dropped down a little. <previous> I’m not changing my star rating, but the new(ish) side phantom game started again today. I have to say that the rewards/prizes offered for it don’t make me want to even bother playing it. Who wants something that summons the Illusion thing? I hate playing that one. I’d much rather have something to get rid of that anomaly. <previous>Thank goodness they reversed the layout changes in new update! I was so glad to see this reversal. The game looks SO much better this way, so I’ll put my stars back. Kudos to the devs that will fix something when they make a mistake. 👍 I haven’t spent any money on this game since that change was made, so I’ll go spend some now. 👏 This game *is* VERY beautiful though; G5 employs some amazing artists. Kudos & 5 🌟 to all the hardworking artists behind these gorgeous games. I’m sure I wouldn’t have continued playing so long without the amazing art. No way.

I have never had any problems with this game before but now it is stuck and won’t work at all. Where the ice queen comes in and wants help to decorate the homes of the citizens. It won’t do anything but start there and loop on the one thing. Cannot access any other part of the game. HELP

Information Overload
by Annika Hoffstatians on 2019/12/09 04:56
WOW!! Information overload is an understatement. I know this is an online game but the storyline, graphics, plots, promos, tools... etc, etc are so much to take in I almost have an anxiety attack when the clock is counting down because I’m afraid I didn’t read something I should’ve or utilize a tool that would’ve yielded greater rewards.... HOWEVER.... THIS IS BY FAR MY NEW FAVORITE ONLINE GAME... the graphics are brilliant, I say specific because they’re historically and/or century specific combined with Enchanted Fantasy. I wish I could go to gameplay and by a first edition players handbook... lol. It’s almost like if D&D, Wizard of Oz, and Sherlock Holmes had a ménage a’trois this would be the lovechild. I’ll probably ruin my vision playing too long at a time, but I’ll love every minute while doing so, I started 2 days ago and I’m almost at level 9... I’m still so ignorant idk if that’s good or bad progress but I will continue to find out.... thanks to developers who obviously loved Highlights mags when they were growing up... as did I... Kudos!!!!
Hidden City Hidden Object Game
by WWCFP1234 on 2019/12/09 01:09
Hidden City is by far the best hidden objects game I’ve ever played!!! The graphics are beautiful and the storyline is always changing keeping things new and interesting!!! I’ve been playing this for over 3 years and I’m completely addicted to it!!! If you love finding hidden objects and doing mini-puzzles with an original haunting theme then you’ll love Hidden City!!!

I have had this game for many years now and I still really enjoy it. I love how simple it is and I can just hop on whenever. I also really like the story line and the monthly events are so cool. If you like mystery games and easy but not too easy I highly recommend this game.

This game has great graphics. I like the challenges and especially the mini games. Will not pay for extra money or rubies so the frequent pop ups for those do take away a lot from the game.

Update too slow!

Have been playing this game for a couple of years now!! All has been good up until the last 3 months. Glitches and game updates too slow. Unobtainable goals are set so likelihood of achieving rewards are reduced!!
Update doesn’t download
by Phoenix34578964632576 on 2019/12/05 00:40
You can’t say it’s an “Update” when it doesn’t download! And don’t tell me “Our tech team is aware and working on it” that is basically “Our development team didn’t do their job coming up with the update and we don’t care.” You also feel we don’t have the right to complain since it’s a free app. News flash everyone stops playing you’re out of a job.
Great Game
by Flow529 on 2019/12/04 22:24
This is my favorite game. The graphics are awesome and there is enough variety to keep it interesting. And customer service is the best. Wait until specials are offered, which is frequent, to get twice the rubies for the same price as when not on special.
Lots of Improvements

When I first started playing this game, I gave it three stars. Now I’ll give it five. They have done a lot to improve the game, especially in the last few months. There are a lot of options now on how you want to do different options in the game. It’s now my favorite game to play!

Not happy
by toodles8201 on 2019/12/04 19:03
I was happy with the new update, until I keep having a lot of pop ups while I’m playing the game. Was trying to click on a snowman when something popped up and caused me to use 20 red diamonds. It happened so fast that I didn’t even see what it was and I didn’t know anything was bought. Until I saw diamonds go down. So I have no idea what was bought with that. I am Mad 😡 about that. And the adds I don’t mind, but they are popping up without a close button. That’s causing me to to go to the App Store way too many times. Soo what’s up with this?

I love the game, but get very frustrated at how long it takes to achieve goals and earn energy, power nets or whatever to continue playing. I also don’t want to spend a ton of money I don’t have just to get extra things. The game was free to download, I was hoping it was going to actually be a free game.

Hidden city of shadows
by rgm64 on 2019/12/02 10:59
Great game, love the detail of the graphics only complaint I have is when you’re looking for objects, you don’t know what they look like and sometimes the object does not match up with the word I suggest at the end of the play of each game if you don’t complete it the game should highlight where the objects are at least so we can see what they look like other than that the game is great.

Great game, beautiful graphics but...
by Sherry's o-pin-un on 2018/08/22 01:19
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 quests...it’s a huge town developers, why do we have to stay in the same place quest after quest?? Lastly would be the monster quests....you 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.
Beautiful frustrating Game
by kassata on 2018/10/03 21:09
The first thing that I have to say about this game is that the graphics are absolutely beautiful and the collections are really fun. I really love the Victorian-Gothic aspect of it and all of the beautiful is symbolism and that’s used throughout the game. There’s lots of areas to explore and lots of little mini games that are nice too. I like the cards if fate mini game that has your memory and the Crystal’s game that is a lot like bejeweled. There’s also a minesweeper type game as well. That being said the game is extremely challenging as you level up in a location. While I like the challenge it is almost impossible to beat some of the puzzles unless you use a tool or a cheat. Also the pay off is very small for collecting all of the keys to the chests that are related to the main quest that’s usually happening. One thing that I think is terrible is that as you get near the end of a collection for a quest you have to summon an “anomaly” to get the item that you need in order to complete the collection. That usually cost money in someway. It’s frustrating to have come that far and then have to spend money to go further in the game.
Fun game but hidden key quests disappear.
by shylady61 on 2019/07/02 15:04
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.
I have a couple of questions???
by Stacy L. Smith on 2018/03/28 03:24
I have a question,!?How can I update a version of Homescape which is supposed to be a free game with the option if you so choose to spend money to get more lives & or more of the little doohickey thingys that help you get through each level, however some thing popped up that said I must install the new version but fir some reason it’s not letting me because I don’t want to put more money in my account than I actually have that I know that I can spend. But it’s a free game that I already have installed on my phone so why can’t I just update the friggin thing without having to have some debit card? And or how can I go about updating it without having to have money in that account? I know I didn’t use a credit card because I don’t have any credit cards. And I also know that my debit card is valid because it’s a debit card however I just only keep the minimum balance in that account unless I have more money that I know that I can afford to spend. And I also know that I didn’t use some friggin Apple Pay Card so it shouldn’t be telling me that the card number I gave them is invalid because they said they would only charge me for purchases that I make. Thus if I’m not trying to purchase something that costs money then why is it that they are trying to charge my debit card by way of that particular game especially since all I’m trying to do is do what it said I had to do which is update the app.!?

Addicting.. When playable
by 2574mypinion on 2018/02/06 01:39
I'm truly addicted. The locations are artistic and the additional gameplay features like monsters and mini games have made this my favorite hidden object game. However, the gems come too slowly for a free player to enjoy it much at all, and the prices are too high to get any amount that would make a worthy difference in the game. Both the real $$cost of gem and coin packages and the game-currency cost of chests, treasuries, tools, boosts etc.. are too high to allow any satisfaction after dropping real dollars on pretend moneys that disappear so fast. Like I said though, I'm addicted and have three accounts. I only make purchases on two accounts and the truth is that the fifty dollars I've dropped so far on each of them hasn't brought me any farther in the game than my free account. Also, the game is a HUGE data hog upon opening new locations and especially when beginning new events. Lastly, I'm tired of seeing friends in my news feed starting the new events hours or even days before my game decides to let me in. It would be a great relief if the app store updates ACTUALLY updated the game or at least prompted the download of event content upon opening the game. The only way to get event content, it seems, is to uninstall and reinstall the game entirely and unless you have several gigs to spare or enjoy those nifty overage charges, it's just not worth it.
Plus and minus
by AbigaleNormal on 2019/08/02 22:51
On the plus side, this game is addictive. It’s fun to play! The graphics are gorgeous. There are a variety of variations and puzzles within the game And to make the game more interesting, there are new “events” and goals about once a month. The more “friends” you connect with in the game, the faster you progress. I’ve had the chance to talk to people from all around the world as I play. The downside. This game is addictive. It’s deliberately set up using psychological principals that are designed to get you to play (and buy) more. It is possible to play for free but progress will be much slower. There is very little in the way of FAQs. Mostly you will have to learn by playing or join one of the Facebook or “hidden” groups to learn how to play and get your questions answered. Also the game software is incredibly buggy!!!!! Constant glitches and problems playing and storing your info. Unless you have a lot of patience, this becomes very frustrating!! There is a link to report the problems but all you’ll get back is a form “letter” telling you they’ll look into it. If you don’t mind all the software problems, and have enough self-control not to spend too much money, the game is lots of fun.

Wow love it addicted to game. Wished more was like this. But I'm lowering my rating since I've been hacked my psw been changed and can't change it to be safe. With someone send request I cancel not to accept it then opened my apple I store it started downloading all of my games and it stated effected my Pokémon go that I play. My Pokémon pokedex is being deleted as we speak or as I type all picture are being gone and you can't recover it. I know from past hackers that send invites from Facebook to messager are the ones sending. It don't use messager so they are putting trackers and viruses on your excepts to take as new people. I don't use broswer for anything even Facebook. I'm seeing double the screen when I'm playing this game I'm see that up in corner I get different numbers of items need like last one was 11 and go to Chest it's 3 now the upper corner is 3 and the chest is 3 I haven't been able too make any of my collections to have finished cuz they took all of the ones I had for myself and left me 1. Now I can't change my psw every thing I try keeps telling me invalid password so they changed it on me too. I can't even go send for help on game cuz there's no way of doing it
Really fun game, but too expensive.
by 1Blondshell1 on 2019/05/30 17:25
This game is a lot of fun and addictive. The story lines are interesting and the graphics are really good. I would love to give this game a 5, but I can’t for a couple of reasons. It’s too expensive to play consistently and the ads are annoying. Since I play this game for entertainment, I don’t mind paying a little to play each month, but you do not get enough rubies for the amount you have to pay to make it worth it. When you level up, you only get 1 ruby... things cost multiple rubies. They almost make it impossible to play without spending money. A suggestion would be, if you’re going to make people spend to play, give them more for their money (especially when it comes to rubies). Or make things cost less. A great option that a lot of other games have is being able to buy unlimited supplies of things. An unlimited ruby supply option, would be great! With the ads, there is no amount of money you can spend to make them go away. I do spend money on this game and I still get long pop up ads that interrupt my game and make me miss some stuff. If people spend the money on your games, please stop the ads from interrupting them! These are also the reasons why I won’t look at any other G5 games... I can’t afford to.
Game used to be fun
by Cashpgall on 2018/10/23 17:09
Update: The more I play this game the more I am considering removing it from all of my devices. It is so completely riddled with nag screens that is very irritating to even play. Also, each time they do an update the game becomes more unstable and crashes a lot. Not to mention they put so many obstacles into completing each mini game, that it sometimes nearly impossible. About the only way to win some of the many games is to spend money, which I refused to do. It is no longer fun and I will be seriously consider getting rid of it. Original post: Love the game, but REALLY hate the push to get you into social media. Also I would much rather be given the option to buy the game and not have the constant having to close nag screens trying to get you to buy coin‘s jams etc. The constant nag screens really become a Major irritation. As far as gameplay it’s very fun and well laid out. It’s worth hours and hours of fun but could be so much more if it wasn’t for a constant nag screens and trying to push you into social media. Just put a price on it of about $30 and many ppl would be happy to buy. I have never, and never will buy the in app purchases. When it gets to the point where I can’t play anymore because of needing to purchase things in the game, then I just quit playing and find a different game
Fun game but several glaring usability bugs & errors
by scarletalphabet on 2019/02/21 14:07
I’d rate this 3.5 if I could. I enjoy this game and don’t mind spending some money on it but there are some extremely annoying issues. 1) in order to get your daily quest list you have to open, close, and re-open the game. All of the other daily bonuses are there when you open it the first time, but for some reason you have to do this weird dance to get the daily quest list every day unless you happen to have the game open at midnight. 2) Often times things will be in the way of what you need to click on. Like monsters will be standing in front of buildings you need to enter or chests that you need to click on, or a message on the bottom of the screen will be covering up something that you need to click on like a cell of the expedition game. 3) The new plea for you to connect to your contact list or Facebook friends in order to add to game friends is very obnoxious and in the way every time you go to your friends list to try and help out your in-game friends. If these were cleaned up I could easily rate this four stars. Or even higher if it was made for the new iPhone so that I don’t lose things behind the left edge of the screen when I play because of the iPhone screen cut out.
Mixed reviews
by Nutly4567 on 2018/08/16 10:52
I have mixed reviews on this game. The graphics, some games and storyline are great, but the difficulty level is too hard once you get to the upper levels. I’m at level 68, but some of the quests are so hard that you cannot get past them without buying diamonds to get items to help you. (i.e. The station). The only way I’ve found to get free diamonds is to level up. You have to search for items, but as you progress, the number of items you need to find increases or the time decreases, I’m not sure which one, but it’s sure harder than when I started. You can add “unknown G5 friends” and request items from them to help you, but they don’t always send you what your requesting. There are also special “events” for a limited time that they promote, but even at level 68, I have yet to be able to complete any of them due to the difficulty of the games as you progress through it. So, if you’re able to spend money on the game (which I’m not) or you’re a lot better than me at finding things quickly, you’d probably really enjoy it. For those of us who can’t afford it, you can progress and enjoy some of the games, but it’s somewhat frustrating working toward a goal you can’t reach.
Disappointed
by shadowsmom on 2019/08/12 11:59
UPDATE - thank you for fixing that flaw!! It was a lovely surprise to find it back on the side last night. I’ve updated my rating to 5 stars I have been playing this game for a few years now, and have seen a number of good updates and challenging quests. That is not the case with the latest update, though. The latest update made some key visual changes that are, quite frankly, an impediment to the game. The object list has been moved from the right side - where it was out of the way and not impeding the game sight - to the bottom of the screen overlaying the game. Sometimes the hidden objects are hidden UNDER the list! While the list itself is somewhat opaque, it is still a problem seeing the objects. I have had a few occasions where the hidden object is under a “tool”, or at the very right of it nearly off the screen. When the object is there and you tap to claim it, you end up (needlessly) tapping a tool as well. These are huge flaws that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. IMHO, that layout absolutely needs to be changed back to the old one.
Please make add free version
by SirenKnight on 2017/10/14 04:42
I don't mind the welcome screen pop up, but the constant pop ups are frustrating. I would happily pay 2.99 to play without pop ups. This game is a lot of fun and you can play for awhile and there are different things to do, and that's fun. However- I also play paranormal society. That game I can only play for 15 mins and I am out of energy and only have 2 goals, where this one there are so m any goals I don't bother to look at them much. I can't keep the threads for each set straight so I often don't even read them. The friends area seems off somehow and I think it could be more friendly. I don't think I need to know every trivial achievement my lvl 85 friend makes, but I would like to be able to actually send gifts and can't seem to figure that out. I get error messages that say I've already sent them when I haven't. I would also buy gems if there were more fun/ reasonably priced packages. Especially since I can get duplicate sets/collections long before I can get the "assembly materials" needed to combine them.
Way too expensive
by Jamsjmg on 2017/10/08 18:58
I've read a lot of the reviews and see what they're talking about. Why is everything in"download queue"???? The game is great but soooo expensive I finally had to delete it then tonight I reinstalled and I get this download queue message and all things floating are covered in a black devil so you can't see what it is. I was addicted and spent a small fortune in a VERY short time but saw my bill and got a reality check resulting in getting rid of it. If you need those silly rubies for every other thing in order to progress to the next level then G5 needs to occasionally give them as a reward for completing something in half the time given or for not using the magnifying glass to help--something! This is just outrageously expensive to play. Too bad, too, because it is one of the best I've seen for a long while. Sorry G5, you lost a good customer with your greed. No more lining your coffers. Enough is enough!! Have deleted twice and go back. Spent TONS of money and it still doesn't give credit when collections are completed plus now it wants you fo visit or help friends in daily quests...I DONT want friends. Stupid requirement and the ads at the end of each task is so annoying as others have pointed out
Hidden city
by SupermomG on 2018/03/09 17:46
I have played this game for a long time, I agree it is way to expensive but the graphics are beautiful! Now comes the but I love a challenge in finding the objects but in several of your graphics on the newer ones they are so cluttered that in the time length you can not find very many items and much use your gems to buy the items that find multiple objects to clear the board, and if you do not clear it you get nothing. Maybe younger eyes and fingers can do better, I don't know, I just wish there was an old person version, that gave us more time or fewer objects. I also think in the pairs board you should say 10 matching pairs and let us pick out the pairs instead of you giving us a list. Also I find it very unfair that in one board the umbrella is a closed umbrella, on another board it is a open miniature umbrella and on another board it is a drawing of an umbrella on the wall, for older people this becomes very confusing. And lastly I agree that you do not listen to what people write in these reviews and you delete the least favorite ones after a very short time because I wrote one about a week ago and I can not find it.
Love/hate
by Daytimer Addict on 2018/01/24 23:38
I love this game because it’s challenging. But, I hate it because some of the scenes (the plane, holiday school) are so hard, you can almost never win them. Other scenes are fun because you eventually conquer them and then move onto something new. But these two scenes seem to be the keys to the holy grail, and I can only win periodically. The other thing I dislike is that it takes so much to get to play one of them. I can only play seriously about 2x per day due to losing energy and consequently not being able to play the sub-scenes to get enough rings. Listen - if I’m hooked on your game and can actually play, and get somewhere, I’ll play a lot more, and consequently, you will have more opportunities to get me to buy something. If I know I can only play twice a day for 15 minutes, that’s all the time you get from me. I’m willing to support in-game purchases if there’s an exciting thing awaiting me around the corner. This game is just too hard and slow right now. Give us a chance to love it enough to thrown money at you.
Constant pop ups/adds
by Pamzorz on 2017/09/26 19:15
The adds are insane. There are 5 adds to close on startup, and god forbid you miss that X to close it. Between mini-games is a constant G5 screech of “please please play our other games!” No, guys, your other games are garbage, I tried them, stop nagging. I mean, really, invitations from other players that can’t be deleted? I don’t want to stare at the notification that tells me I have “gifts” when it’s actually 5 invitations to play another one of your games that I have ALREADY TRIED AND DID NOT LIKE. Not to mention those sneaky adds that appear as you hit the OK button after a level. Did you think I would go ‘oh okay I guess I will download it since you just forced me to sit through the App Store loading screen.’ No, I just close the game in frustration. I made an in app purchase in hopes the ads would stop, worst 99¢ I ever spent. I would spend more if there wasn’t so much stress involved with just opening the game. If you can get past the constant popup stream, it’s a great game. Lots of mini games. Love the goal setting. Play it at home because they’ll decimate your data with surprise streaming video.
Losing Interest
by SavingQueen on 2018/11/25 06:17
Ya hi! Can we lose the Illusions Anomaly already? I get that it’s new and you’re all excited about it, but I’m starting to lose interest after 2 years of playing this game because of it. 30 of my 40 locations are currently that dumb anomaly, and I have several times watched a location that I did NOT just play turn from a normal status over to the dumb new anomaly! And they never change!! I’m obviously not playing that anomaly frequently... because it’s not that great and I can only imagine it takes over my entire board because you force us to buy the anomaly fixer with gems! So ok, you want money... do the dozens of pop up adds not suffice? I have completed multiple seasonal challenges and won their avatars without having to pay a dime, which is fantastic, but I’m hardly started on the 5th level of this current Autumn challenge because I’m becoming so upset by my location options all being the same boring anomaly. Mix it up. Recognize when your players really hate certain anomalies or don’t do well at certain ones. Reward your players with the fix to the anomaly and don’t all of a sudden require money for this kind of thing.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS GAME
by Lisbug101 on 2019/10/24 13:06
Not spending more money on it! I have being playing the game for a while now! On the moment theme Halloween I was almost 5 starts got all stickers (THAT I HAD TO BUY), I wanted to download the game to my laptop as well ( BIG MISTAKE) not only on the computer none of the progress was loaded, but also all of my progress on my iPhone was gone!! It says that I have 0 stickers, 0 stars! Only one totem! Which is ridiculous because I’m level 72! It looks like they don’t care neither.! I contacted support, followed they instructions to not use the app ( until further notice) 2 days later they emailed me and said it was fix. When I logged in, surprise NOTHING WAS FIX! Everything was the same as I left it! They only about taking your money! Some of totem gets updated by using certain items ( THAT YOU HAVE TO BUY) well I lost all progress will need to buy 3,000 more to update ( good joke) is a shame that companies still take advantage of customer and deceive them in those way!
Information Overload
by Annika Hoffstatians on 2019/12/09 04:56
WOW!! Information overload is an understatement. I know this is an online game but the storyline, graphics, plots, promos, tools... etc, etc are so much to take in I almost have an anxiety attack when the clock is counting down because I’m afraid I didn’t read something I should’ve or utilize a tool that would’ve yielded greater rewards.... HOWEVER.... THIS IS BY FAR MY NEW FAVORITE ONLINE GAME... the graphics are brilliant, I say specific because they’re historically and/or century specific combined with Enchanted Fantasy. I wish I could go to gameplay and by a first edition players handbook... lol. It’s almost like if D&D, Wizard of Oz, and Sherlock Holmes had a ménage a’trois this would be the lovechild. I’ll probably ruin my vision playing too long at a time, but I’ll love every minute while doing so, I started 2 days ago and I’m almost at level 9... I’m still so ignorant idk if that’s good or bad progress but I will continue to find out.... thanks to developers who obviously loved Highlights mags when they were growing up... as did I... Kudos!!!!
Hidden City Review
by linlu1947 on 2019/11/12 03:35
I have been playing this game for quite awhile now. I enjoy some parts of it, but I am thinking about quitting it. It has grown very expensive for a game. I get focused on completing the challenges, which requires a lot of time and money. The graphics are beautiful, although the stories are a little strange. I get frustrated when it takes too many tries to get an object. Also sometimes something you are trying to find on the screen is obscured by monsters or the banners with the location names or some general feature like a shrub. I find I often need just a little more time to complete the game, but when I can’t I have to use some alternative that costs money in one way or another. Occasionally there are technical screw-ups like an object you are looking for that does not appear in the location until you use one of the aids for finding objects or you hit an object for matching with another, but it won’t disappear, causing you to lose the energy you used to play. There is nothing you can do yourself to fix or compensate for those situations.
Addicting, but could be better
by RI2005USA on 2017/09/28 13:45
I've been playing just about two weeks I think, and I find it quite an addicting game. However, it is very difficult to complete collections due to low drop rate of chargers. Not enough experience gained from expelling monsters around the city, especially considering the amount of time it can take to acquire the weapons necessary to do so. Also, you are only given short bursts of play because of the amount of time to restore energy vs. energy needed to complete rooms/quests. You can play a lot faster if you spend money, which I'm sure is the developers main goal. After all, they have to make money. I just wish I could play longer at a time, and make better progress. Overall, I enjoy the game, it's a decent premise, and I wish there were more games that were just like it. The other hidden object games aren't similar enough for me to enjoy. Worth it for a free game, in my opinion!
Developers are skewing the game to bilk players!
by Thisby on 2018/01/02 18:38
The crystals mini game is skewed to only let you get to the third level then it is impassable without having multiple “power tools” of every type to win every single game. They skew the statistics as well to inflate the success rate of that mini game with those of their expedition one to make the crystals game stats seem easy. This is not the usual gem or candy game that is passable on other sites. These developers are underhanded in their tracking of the game and in the game setup to force players (as much as they can) into spending money and apply even more pressure to do so by making special game events nearly solely dependent on playing and passing hundreds of crystals mini games to participate in the majority of the special event deals. They deliberately do this but make it seem like everyone has a fair chance which in such a rigged game only the wealthy can succeed. The developers are deceitful and practice the ultimate in poor gamesmanship or else they would revamp crystals for the masses by making it winnable like it’s contemporaries on other sites or offering a feature for a player to opt to level down.
Ads Ruin the Game Experience
by Diamond*Girl on 2017/10/12 17:19
I've been a playing HC for almost 3 years because the hidden object scenes are great, along with the well-designed graphics and events. HOWEVER, the pop-up ads after EVERY play or battle with monsters is ridiculous, not to mention the number of unsolicited invites from friends who unknowingly download a game and trigger an invite to all their friends (I know, because I foolishly tried this once and got blasted by friends for sending them invites, which I didn't do knowingly). This is SPAM and is totally unethical to falsely send unsolicited advertisements from other players without permission! Worse, in order to delete those unwanted invites, you have to click on the invite, wait for it to load...click the "x" and then repeat the same process before you get the delete button. By the time you clear all the invites each day, you've wasted a ridiculous amount of time. Writing to G5 makes no difference, because they must get enough hits to make it worth the complaints. Really too bad, because this is ruining the game experience and guaranteed to make me never try another G5 game again.
I hate the necessity of friends!
by CricketKiller1992 on 2019/04/27 13:32
Edit: So besides the friends thing (which is still so glitchy!) now you had to complete about 30 boggarts anomalies on approximately 25 days, I’ve played each day, several hours to collect the whole mission stickers, only came across 3 boggarts the whole time! It’s ridiculous that one of the requirements can’t be met because the anomaly won’t show up! Of course you can summon it, but -if you play you know this- it should just show itself after a while, so there’s a scam or a big problem with the app. So, this used to be a great game, and I do play it daily, but since they started this “you need friends to complete missions,” I just don’t get it: ok, so you want to force this on us, fine! But can you at least make the connection with those friends stable! I have many of them now, and I’m trying to visit them to “follow” the rules and get results on this season theme, but it freezes, I’ve already reloaded the game 5 times because of this problem! So you need us to visit our friends, but if we have to many what? We have to waste endless time loading and reloading these “friends games” so we can “help” them... I hate this!
Fun but Greedy little app
by ryocg on 2018/08/06 00:06
So, I’ve been playing this game for about six months but am now super annoyed by it. I know apps need to make money and I have made some purchases but, come on, this game is so difficult to play now unless you spend tons of money on those dang rubies. Anomalies, everywhere, all the time and they never reward you with the tools to banish them. I’ve got monsters everywhere but he** if they reward you with the tools to fight them. Then the ads, omg the ads! You win and they pop up and block you from seeing your rewards. This game has gotten so frustrating now. Sometimes I just log on for days to collect the daily rewards so I can actually get something done when I sit down and play. I am not going bankrupt over your little game. I feel sorry for those that do. Needless to say the game is beautiful. It would be nice to purchase it once and get all the tools you ever need. At least give us a break, you have so many ads obviously you’re also making money there. I don’t think I’ll ever download another G5 game.
Greed is too much
by bhggxdd on 2018/08/27 15:53
The graphics are beautiful but G5 is much too greedy. Rubies are necessary unless, perhaps, you are incredibly good at finding objects that are nearly totally blended into the scene. The only significant way to get them is to buy them. They are used to buy tools that help find objects in scenes. A major attraction to me of this game is it gives tasks that have you visit scenes to collect certain objects. Everything in the game generates objects needed for a collection and objects needed to combine the collection. After getting the 5 objects for a collection you need 2 to 10 of each of 4 objects needed to combine. A new task won’t start until you combine the collection. BUT some items that are needed to combine different collections are really rare in the game. You really need to spend rubies to get the ones you don’t have! I currently have 6 or 7 collections that I need about $40 to buy what I need. I might have 90 instances of objects where I need 2 for 2 of the collection objects. And I might have 2 of another one that I need 10 for one collection, and 5 each to complete two more collections. I will never look at another game by this company.
Frustrating Waste of Tools
by jrirons on 2019/08/09 17:58
While I enjoy the game, it’s frustrating when you finally get 15 pendants and you have enough energy to search the scene. You have to find two of each object. I was on the last object, I found one and my time was running out. I used a magnifying glass and it showed me the one I already found. I tried again, again it showed me the one I had already found. I tried the compass and it pointed to the one I already found. I wasted three tools and still didn’t find the last object or complete the scene. I now have to find 15 pendants again and wait for my energy to fill. I think this should be an easy fix. If you’ve found an object, the tools should help you find the other one you’re looking for. Updated August 9: I’m reluctant to download the latest update. The last one put word bubbles at the bottom of the screen, obscuring many of the items you’re looking for. Only 4 clues are available to search for which makes it take longer to complete the task. Once the words are placed on the right side again, then I’ll update.
Really Enjoying!
by Blitzed on BB on 2017/09/28 16:46
So much I like about this game...the guided beginning steps, the daily treasures, the quests, various ways of searching the same place so it's never boring, the increasing difficulty where I sometimes lose all the items I'd gained because I ran out of time, etc. My favorite is comparing the scene side-by-side to find what's different. I also enjoy finding two of the same. Some items to note: - It would be great if you'd stop making certain items in the station white...it's impossible to see (literally). - Could we either zoom in more to the city on our iPads or make it so we don't have to scroll? One of the things I love about using my iPad is the not having to scroll so much...it should all be on one screen. - Monsters often hide treasures and you can't get to it until they move. - Many treasures require you to go someplace that isn't unlocked for another 50+ levels...can it start recognizing what level we're at and allowing us to only go to places we've either already unlocked or are 1 level away? - Items don't match even when doing the shadow find or two of the same. You could get used to even finding something in words then it doesn't look the same the first time an anomaly of some sort appears. For example, a heart could be a carved heart into a wooden object or what looks like a piece of a necklace.
Diappointed
by BlackOpalPearl on 2019/10/22 23:55
I have played this game and have downloaded to several of my devices. In the last couple of years the bug fixes or lack there of have gotten worse. This is the second time this year that I have had to completely start this games over due to the time stops working, won’t upgrade my totems, can’t collect coins, takes my coins, cannot enter all locations, and can’t receive rewards. This has been an ongoing issue and after all this time it still isn’t fixed. I have tried saving it to my cloud, and it hasn’t saved my game yet. The aesthetics for the games were fixed, but not the major issues for me were addressed. I loved this game and really enjoyed playing on all the levels that the game allowed me too, but now I have to move on and delete and not turn back. I’ve seen the maintenance, and the updates, but they are just not working properly after a certain amount of time or when you reach a certain level. The reason I gave it one star is because I’ve had to start all the way over three times, and this last time was less then a month ago. Farewell hidden objects
You listened ... well ... kinda
by V Tap on 2019/08/11 04:07
UPDATE: Hoooraayyy! Thank you G5 for listening and changing the format back so the Godzilla sized word bubbles and tools are no longer in the search area. Plus giving us the list of 5 items to search for instead of 4! In return, I’ve restored my 5 star rating! Keep up the great work! PREVIOUS REVIEW: This is a searching game and the latest update with HUGE word bubbles blocks large parts of the search area! What genius thought this is a good idea? From looking at comments & reviews left since this update came out, its pretty obvious your players hate this and limiting it to 4 items on the list is a terrible idea too. Please make it so the search area is clear for searching. Seems so obvious! Otherwise, the graphics are stunning, stories interesting and games are fun. Just please do away with the stupid screen-hiding monster word bubbles. It’s especially bad on the phone.
G5: Would get much higher rating but....
by Weatherwise999 on 2018/12/16 14:12
I love the game aspects of the only G5 game I've installed from them on my iPhone: Hidden Cities. What keeps this a three star rating is that the game has a tendency to kick you out or freeze on you while loading the ads that pop up frequently as you play. I would get more G5 games like it but don't because I'm assuming the problem is persistent across their games, and this would happen no matter which you download. It's not uncommon for me to have to restart the game several times a day, and if I want to play for an extended period of time, several times an hour. I don't know if this is a server issue or if the ads have something programmed into them that does this, but either way there are days I really contemplate whether the game is worth the trouble. So come on, G5--fix this issue or it may cost you this player, and likely future ones as well, because I can't recommend a G5 game with a clear conscience unless I add a warning about these issues.
I get the ads but...
by Cghjucfj on 2018/01/08 01:25
Why must the video ads take so long to just load - even when I'm on a high speed wifi network ? Then I have to wait for the delete X to appear. THEN an image ad for the same game I just deleted appears I just selected delete because I am not interested in that game. An image ad of the same game will not change a player' mind and I seriously doubt the player hit the delete X by mistake. And once you get past both ads, the rewards you've just won are already off the screen and into their respective locations. As players, we want to see those rewards added, that's part of the satisfaction of playing any game. IF YOU INSIST ON RUNNING A SLOW LOADING VIDEO AD FOLLOWED BY AN IMSGE AD, WHY NOT DELAY THE REWARDS BEING DISTRIBUTED UNTIL AFTER THE ADS HAVE EITHER RUN THEIR COURSE OR BEEN DELETED BY THE PLAYER ? Both Sides Win !!! I get you want you generate more revenue by getting players to play more of your games, but there's the soft sell approach and the sledgehammer approach. Judging by other reviews, the latter approach may not be working.
Creative but
by shalhevet!!!!! on 2019/07/29 21:19
After playing for more than 3 years I removed the game completely. Beautifully designed, super creative, kudos to the design team, lots of freebies. Didn’t mind paying for rubies and such. So my frustration was/is it takes quiet a lot to move forward on levels. Especially the crystal/ 3 match game( which was my favorite) I shouldn’t have to play 85 times just to move 1%. Then you added the anomaly. I felt cheated. The last quest/event that I enjoyed was the Pier and Angela’s Park. Every quest after that was just to difficult, dark and creepy and weird music. I also loved the cad game but such little time to play it. I didn’t care to play all the quests, just became too repetitive and have to search for the needed keys or whatever to play the event. Too long for quest, too long to move forward, too little time to finish each quest/game. Felt cheated/rigged when playing the crystal game. I was on level Vl forever. So I quit the game.
Fun but costly
by Etherealuj on 2017/09/17 22:36
It's a challenging, fun game to play. It's addictive. My main complaints are that the time regenerates so slowly, and even if you collect everything necessary for a collection, it's almost impossible to get the last item that will give you the rewards you deserve, unless you want to spend real money! I also find it annoying that there are too many times when I just can't find the last item on my list when I'm at a location. It makes me believe that the item really isn't there. One way to remove my doubt would be to highlight the missing item so I know it's really there, and that the developer isn't just trying to get me to spend money for a tool that would find items automatically. The developer has no problem telling you that if you just had more tools (spend some money), you would have a faster, easier time finding what you're looking for.
Mildly expensive

If I were better at finding hidden objects, I wouldn’t have to spend so much money buying rubies to buy tools and collection items. I have a lot of coins, but they’re not much use for anything. The parts of collections appear very erratically because some sets I have 15 of one-fifth, but only one of two-fifths of it, and I don’t get help from my “neighbors”. The graphics are very pretty, but there’s no time to admire anything since there’s such a short time limit on each scene you’re forced to focus on the details and not the whole. And some of those details require so much good eyesight too. Definitely a game for the youthful. The latest update where the building labels keep popping up is pretty annoying. It’s not that complicated a town layout. Once you’ve picked out the five landmark buildings you like, the rest should lie low unless you specifically ask to look at them.
Do not get suckered in!!! Don’t start!

I like playing this game but these guys try to FORCE you to spend money constantly. Some of the games are super hard with not enough time or hint options (of course without buying more) & they only give you a certain amount of energy to be able to play to begin with without buying more. You win prizes from monsters but when there’s a choice - every time, the one I choose has nothing I need but the other 2 ALWAYS do & of course you have to purchase those! And then there’s a little ghost game and as soon as I get seven away from winning a prize they only allow the ghosts to be at a location that requires 127 things of energy. Again they only give you like 200 every 12 hours so really you’re going to force me to buy more or use up all of mine which won’t even take me to the final prize?!! & this game ends in an hour where I won’t have time to build more energy so would have to buy more. That is just rude and ridiculous. I actually hate this game or I should say I like the game but not the money-hungry people behind it.
New update is impossible
by Momo927777 on 2018/08/07 07:04
I’ve been playing for awhile now and thought several times about leaving a review complaining about your greediness. Obnoxious ads pop up that have to be exited out of twice and will crash my iPad causing me to lose all of the rewards from whatever scene I just searched. You make it impossible to earn rubies which are the only things you can use to buy objects, meanwhile I have almost 600,000 coins that I’ve earned that I can’t do anything with because I’ve unlocked all of the scenes. The new update, however, it what finally inspired me to leave a review. The scene is impossible with the flowers and tiny details. Not only are the incredibly minuscule keys impossible to find, but the regular objects are difficult as well. I’ve tried the same silhouettes mode 5 times now and still am losing every single time because I can’t figure out what some of the silhouettes are or where they are located. I have not had nearly this much trouble with any other location. You guys really messed this one up. Hope you figure it out for next month’s scene.
So far, so good!

I’m only writing this review right now to finish a quest and get the free gems. Haha. I will update my review once I’ve been playing for longer than 24 hours; and, I’ve actually had enough time to experience the game long enough to give a fair review. So far, however, I am pleased with the gameplay, graphics, etc. I’ve tried MANY of the hidden objects games, and I ALWAYS end up deleting them after a couple days, other than one other game that I’ve been playing for a month, now. All of the other games end up being too cheesy, boring, impossible to play without spending real money (which I REFUSE to do), or just downright terrible. However, so far—this game seems like it might be my second “keeper”. Haha. Like I said, I’ll update my review after I’ve had enough time to actually play the game long enough to be able to give a fair and accurate review. So far, so good, though! 😊
Game request overload
by Gagibeaner on 2017/11/23 00:31
I wish there was a way to block game requests for other games. For each one received, I must click on the request, wait for it to load, X out, click on the request AGAIN, wait for it to load, and then delete the request. If each request takes almost a full minute to delete, and you received 10-15 requests a day, it makes playing the game very cumbersome. Also, the app crashes every time I go to the werewolf lair which makes completing my task list impossible. Every time I send feedback within the game, I get an error message. The game is still fun and I don't know why everyone is complaining about spending money. Im at level 97 and have never spent a penny nor have I encountered a task that was impossible to complete for free. Also, it would be great if you could filter the newsfeed to show item requests only. Gotta help out those friends!!
No update
by Deziz World on 2017/12/03 21:33
This game is just okay. It’s a good way to pass a little time unless you spend real money. It seems to take forever to replenish energy and the higher you get the more energy it takes to play a scene. As for updates, they’re really slow. Most of the time, shutting down my ipad and restarting will allow the game to start an update. However, the latest update for Christmas won’t load at all. I still have options left over from Thanksgiving, but no way to complete them since I can no longer earn the special tokens to enter the site for searching. Since I’ve completed all the regular scenes, I wait for the event updates in order to play. But, if I can’t update, then I start way behind and don’t have enough time to complete an event. I’m a casual player and not willing to spend more than a dollar or two on a game at any time. I do hope I can get the Christmas update before I get too frustrated and just delete this game.
Way too many ads
by ChrisRCaron on 2018/04/05 12:59
The game itself is fun and engaging but they just put too many ads for other games in your face while playing. Just starting the game presents you with three ads requiring action: 1) A splash screen telling you about all the most popular G5 games (apparently every single one of their games is the most popular) with a Continue to Game button, 2) A video ad for one of G5’s many games that must load over the internet before allowing you to close it with one click of an X in the top right corner then a second click of an X in the splash screen for the game, and 3) An ad disguised as a friend activity, telling you about a friend’s level or other accomplishment in yet another G5 game and offering to let you download that game too, again requiring an X to be clicked. Then there are the regular video ads as in #2 above after every 3 or 4 puzzles you complete. Cut back on the ads and this game could be a 4 or 5 Star.

I will say, for an iOS game, it really is a fun game with excellent colors and graphics. The story line is a bit much for as many as there are at one time but still a great game. The only issue I’m having is that with work/kids/life, there is no way to collect all the keys needed to open chests unless I sit and play this game furiously and that’s not gonna happen. The idea of the little snowmen was perfect. In the beginning, you could find & tap them to collect keys/rings, which is more realistic, but after a while, they stop. No good..to the one who created it, you need to fix this for us busy ppl so we can continue to enjoy the game, otherwise, I will quit my in-app purchasing. What’s the point of playing if the busy folks like myself will never receive a new prize, totem or amulet? There’s no fun in that. It needs to be fair. Until it’s fixed, I will not recommend this game. Too much to collect & not enough time to win anything.. ~Disappointed Mom

Now that in app purchases are the norm for “free games” coupled by the creators making it near impossible to advance without making a purchase I have to say that the creators/developers are super generous with the distribution of energy/items needed to advance. If you really are looking for a quicker way to accumulate items you can always add friends. I love being able to add friends that are actively playing rather than bothering my FB friend/family. The community is great at fulfilling wishlist items. The developers keep it interesting with different seasonal themed events. I have experienced zero glitches, crashes and the ads aren’t as annoying as other games. Only appearing when launching the app. I have purchased rubies because sometimes the levels can be hard and personally I hate not completing levels ☺️
Fun Game but Frustrating
by zwoman21 on 2019/07/21 23:14
This a really fun game, especially with the improvements, however, it can get extremely frustrating having to go into the event room over 10x and still unable to obtain the item. I understand the game needs to challenging but it shouldn’t take you days & 10x plus & still not able to obtain the item needed. Even using boots, you still are unable to obtain the item. Even more frustrating is the the expedition mini game. There is no strategy for this mini game it’s more like a 50/50 chance of completing just one game or by chance. Also, there is too much time between the totems. Once every 24 hrs takes too long, especially if you are further along in the event... Lastly, why are you unable to send gifts from the previous event once you begin another event?? Like I said this is a fun game but can get extremely frustrating at times...
Graphics - 100; satisfaction level 3
by PedestalGirl on 2019/05/25 21:42
I agree with others who say how amazing the graphics are. It's truly a work of art with the lifelike human characters, the backgrounds, and the objects to be found. My frustration comes, as others have said, with the need to spend real cash money to advance beyond the first three levels of any quest. And another big turn-off, at Level Five on a quest, is the need to find the special item in an Illusions anomaly. But, this anomaly hasn’t been available for the last 15 games I’ve played. It keeps coming up with other anomalies which means I have to keep pumping thru other areas to get enough special items to go back to play in the special room. I get that the developer is in the game to make money but don’t turn people off so close to the end. I'll drop the game before I shell out real money to play thru the special room to finally get to the anomaly that has the special item.
Enjoy the game but...
by Diamondmine123 on 2017/09/24 23:59
I really enjoy the game, but it is frustrating when as you advance or finish a new series, the amount of energy required to enter that area jumps from 30 to 70. That is ridiculous. There is no reason for the energy amount to go so high. It's bad enough that to complete something requiring special items to get in, that they jump by 5 each time you gain a level. The other issue is not being able to find the items needed to complete a collection. When you click search to find it, and it points at an areas that isn't even available to you yet, that's annoying. I will not enter an site that requires 70 or 100 energy points to play, that is a waste of energy, especially when you make an object impossible to find. Fix the game, and people will enjoy it more. And no, I'm not buying anything. I'll wait for the energy to restore if I have too. That is absurd!
Frustration
by bcrsteve on 2018/05/29 06:19
The game itself was fun to play in the beginning but it became apparent that if you want to move to the higher levels you’ll have to spend money. In addition, advertising another game while I’m trying to see my rewards after finishing a task is thoughtless as we can’t see the results. We miss key information because of this thoughtless. The game continues to play while we’re stuck watching a game advertisement. When this happens, it’s so frustrating that I stop playing the game. Please remove it. We become accustom to the appearance of objects while playing the initial levels. Then we’re suddenly greeted with a complete change in appearance and size of said objects when starting the higher levels. New objects are introduced using names that we’ve never seen. When storylines expire, we lose days of sign in bonuses because of delays in starting the next one. We told we’re rewarded with two avatars but only get one. The scenes are cluttered with needless junk making it difficult to find what we’re suppose to.
