Update?? - It is telling me to download update to continue. Ok but where is that download?
UMMM - The update is not hitting my computer but my phone has been updated. Spent money on this app and if it does not update on my phone I am done playing
More Reviews for Current Version
Could be so much better - This game is very frustrating. The graphics are beautiful but the words flash on the screen so quickly you don’t know what they are saying. The game is very complex so I just let the game tell me where to go. Bit by bit I understand more but it would be helpful if I could read their hints. I’m on the 3rd day and I am increasingly frustrated by the games efforts to make me buy things. I suspect this game will never be fun untill you start spending lots of money. At this point I can play for 5 - 10 min. then I need to stop for a minimum of 20 min. for the game to recharge energy. All told it really isn’t worth the time, energy and money. And yet……. the complexity is intriguing even if it requires more than a 50 page book to keep track of all of the quests and spin-off etexts/books.
AGAIN?? - Ok look, what seems to be the problem? You FINALLY gave us an update for Mac OS desktop/laptop…awesome. The problem is that you gave us the event location for the previous update (that we NEVER received) but you gave us NO ACCESS to said location. When it’s clicked, it says to find the mirror pieces yet there is no option to search for the pieces, nor are there pieces to be found in the other locations. None. Soooo, we have the current event AND a useless previous event site. great. just. great.
Frustrating as you progress - As you progress in levels finding objects and playing the mini-games gets more difficult. In some cases as in night mode the game add times to complete the task but as you progress to different levels within different mode the time to complete these task does not increase but the task just gets harder. This leads to alot of frustration and eventually at some point I can see myself abandoning this game as I am unable to progress. I’m sure the company design it this way to make you spend money to buy their really expensive rubies/tools so you can progress but its ridiculous what they charge to use rubies etc.
SWITCHED TO iPHONE FOR UPDATED VERSION - Well I waited 4 months and still no update. I gave up on waiting and have switched my profile to my iPhone…instantly I got all the rooms I never received via my MacBook, special items to enter rooms that I still had from older updates were converted as they were no longer in play and I’m now able to gift items to my friends that are in the current version across various platforms (including Windows). I agree with another reviewer who stated if the MacBook version can’t be updated just tell us instead of having all of us frustrated as heck and ready to walk away from G5 as a whole!!!
Great free game with some drawbacks - I love this game a whole bunch and I can’t stop playing every day on my iMac computer. I’m glad that I found a fun free game on the app store. I have another Hidden Object game on my phone called Alice in the Mirrors of Albion which I play every now and then. I can’t get gifted collection items from my friends on here because its telling me to update to latest version of the app and its making mad cause I can’t accept the collection gift at all. Please fix it for me so I can accept the collection gift. This game is fun to play on my iMac but there’s some drawbacks like it will take me at least half of my time looking for a item that I can hardly see, don’t know what it looks like, or I never heard an item be called a different name that I never heard.
