Light Up The "Lantern"! Collect My "Soul"! Another Gem!

Resubmitted due to updated app:

So happy that my favorite series is back! Our famous characters return for another mystery of murder, suspense, and intrigue. I love how the setting takes place during one of my favorite time periods - the 1950s. And no - I'm not near that old, so stop saying, "What an old chick!" Just kidding. The characters are appropriately dressed, and the cars reflect the time period. The graphics are clear and contain many shades of different colors. You can customize your settings by checking on or off the desired options. The inventory is labeled and interactive; items require assembly. The journal is one of the best ever; you can see for yourselves how good it is. Even the voiceovers are nicely done. The teleport map is also the best ever; it indicates available actions and what locations you can collect something. The puzzles are simple, varied, and relative to the storyline; I love to find parts of symbols! There are some nice background animations, such as curtains moving upon touch and lamps lighting as you pull its strings. You have various collections, and they can be challenging to spot. Don't forget to check under the Menu to find things. Transition between scenes is smooth and quick; no glitches as usual. Overall, kudos to this developer again!

🔙➡️🆙⤴️ need some 🌌

I love FIVE-BN but...
I'm only a quarter of the way through...
but the constant voice-overs breathing down my neck AND the accompanying text stalking me,
jumping out from behind a doorway almost every time I walk down a street....
🤔 Wait a minute,..oops, that's my ROR ex
(or my 🏏💩 crazy paternal Grandmother, depending on what time and day..)
What I meant was -
almost every time I go to investigate an item,
before I even have a second to look at it or take it in....is driving me to distraction!!
(Located in Hollywood...lol..)
Make some space on the dance floor..💃🏼🎤....(or karaoke bar.....)
I realize it's informative value, but for those who don't want to know (at least at that very second) and prefer to "enjoy the mystery" when it comes to which item or process it needs - a BIG part of the fun- having the option to omit under the select difficulty section would be GREATLY appreciated.

I'll resume my review when passing the finish line .....

I love this game!

When I had a PC, I, exclusively, played adventure games. I've been using an iPad the last few years and only aware of hidden object games. I didn't know where to look for games like this. It's so clever and I love the game play. I will definitely try the earlier NY Mysteries when I finish this one.
