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.

Update made it frustratingly difficult

I've been really enjoying the game (with a few minor complaints, such as the incessant pushing of in-app purchases common to games like this that I didn't pay to get), but the latest update (version 1.9.8) has made the game much less fun. Before this update, some scenes were challenging, and some were easier, but overall it was a good mix of a decent enough challenge without being impossible. But, the latest update has added so many objects in a scene that it's overwhelming and no longer fun (additionally, some items have changed names and changed appearance). In one scene that I was reliably winning 4/5 attempts, I've now won 1 time in 10 attempts and it's getting frustrating. Additionally, they've changed the "add 45 seconds" boost if you fail a scene so that it not only uses up a boost in your inventory but says you may lose some other items from your inventory if you do use it. Umm ... no, thanks. Either make that an unlimited boost (that makes you lose something out of your inventory) or a boost limited to how many you have in your inventory.

I suppose people weren't using enough hints (and buying more), and I get they need to make money. But if the game isn't fun, I just won't play at all. If I remain frustrated much longer, I'll probably just find another game to play, which is too bad, because I've been really enjoying this one.
