Game freezes and crashes during game play

None of those tips worked as I tried them all. You're newest update didn't fix your problems. And I am losing 80 energy almost every time I play this game. I play it multiple times a day and it happens almost every time. I've done everything I can think of to fix it and none of yalls helpful hints have helped. I play multiple games on this device every day and I don't have any problems with them, it's this game. I would love for all my energy I lost today in 15 minutes of playing it to be given back. I've thought about buying extra energy and stuff but after all these issues, I'm rethinking that one. I defiantly don't want to loose energy I paid for. Please just figure it out so I can go back to playing like I did before yalls last update. Game freezes in the middle of a scene, I lose the energy it cost to play that scene plus I don't receive any points for that scene. It's very frustrating. Please fix these issues and reimburse my loss of energy for this last session I played which was 80.
I do love this game and will write a great review once you resolve my issues.

Easily my favorite game!

I've played Criminal Case for a couple years now and it's been my favorite mobile/browser since the beginning. Here's a quick run down of the game. You have 9 hidden object scenes each of which you can collect 5 stars from. You use stars to analyze clues, talk to suspects, and arrest killers. As you progress through the different cases you find out how they all relate to one another in each district or town. In my personal opinion it has a great story line and comical aspects to keep you interested and not bored. You have a daily bonus that you can collect each day along with your friends sending you energy and cards. The dev team also gives out rewards on their Facebook page every day along with Happy Hours. If I had to request one thing I would want to add to the game it would be the ability to watch videos to speed up lab times.

Fun. Too many drawbacks

First a disclaimer. This is not a crime/mystery game. It is a hidden objects/puzzle game. That said, the games are fun. However, it takes entirely too long to earn a star which is needed to advance to absolutely any point in the game. To get all stars (5) in a puzzle you have to play the same puzzle at least 25 to 30 times. Ridiculous. Then, once you get a clue it can take up to 12 hours for the "lab" to analyze. Unless of course you pay money. No thanks. Then you finally finish a case and think you will get a new one? Sorry no. You either have to wait three days, pay money (again), or pester your friends to "write reports" for you. So, bottom line... the games are fun but it takes entirely too long/too much money to do even the smallest thing. You are constantly being asked to pester friends and pay money. I am willing to pay small amounts of money for games I really like but not every 5 seconds! So the fun here is much less than the aggravation.
