Really like this game


UPDATE:9/28 I'm having some trouble finding an item called Amido Black to unlock the items in the collection area. Well it says I can find it in the cases bar, reception, and fish store as long as I am at a certain rank. Well I'm at the correct rank, but I have not found that item. It doesn't even show it in the beginning where it says you can find. I ended up having to buy stones to buy that item just so I can go on with the game. Well the only way I was able to do so was because I was given an iTunes card for my birthday, so I will not be able to continue to spend money on stupid stones just so I can continue with the game. So is there something wrong, is it just so you will spend money on their game? Well if that is the case then I will have to quit, obviously because you can't go any further in the game if you don't combine the collection. It's been a really good game so far. I like how the objects are moved around, and how it increases your energy by 5 after playing for a while and continues to do so. It would be really cool if they made it to where you can watch videos to earn more energy. The only real problem is the part of the game where you have to play night vision, it's just a little bit difficult,. Don't get me wrong I like a challenge, if you could just make it a little easier, but if you don't that will not cause me to not like the game I'll just have to loose, and try again like I have many times lol. Thank you.

They have changed since it was S.E.D.

I played this game when it was called S.E.D. (Special Enquiry Detective). I had leveled up in the game and had quite a few flashlights and other boosts. Then one day the game just wouldn't open. I enjoyed playing it but noticed the name changed to Homicide Detective. So silly me, I download the Homicide Detective thinking it will "update" my app and will sync my progress. Nope! It is a whole "new app" with the same characters and same stories, and my progress and power ups lost! I am forced to start over! Grrrrr! It has changed in its format somewhat. It now integrates the collections as you work the scene. Before those were basically left unfounded unless you wanted to play endlessly on a solved case and level up your "rank" in order to find the collection items, which I never did. Another change is they have "dumbed it down a bit" by keeping the hidden items in the same place, so it's easier to find them. Before, it was more of a challenge because they moved them around each time you played the scene. So here I am starting over from case 1 and without all my power ups, that I had accrued. The graphics and storyline still seem the same which were good, but the stories take forever to progress, which may make or break me. We will see if I stay interested. And if they try to force purchases in order to progress well then this game will be deleted.

Great idea, but too many problems


While this is a great hidden object detective game, there are several issues with the app, the most frustrating of which right now is that I cannot find the superstar sunglasses. I'm halfway through Sargent (on the yacht) and I haven't once found the item I need to continue, and I have the items and places nearly memorized, I've done it so many times. Super frustrating. But more relative to the general user, the biggest problem seems to be the night vision mode. It limits the screen space and makes everything a fuzzy green-black. I play this on my phone and have to zoom a lot, and items are still tiny, so having a further limited screen and no color cues makes it too difficult a challenge. Having a black object hidden behind a black screen is impossible to see in this mode, so you have to use the hint tools, which cost a ridiculous amount of crystals.
