Could be a great game

This could be great instead of mediocre if the devs were not so determined to get as much money as possible. The energy cost is ridiculous and the items you need to "combine" the collections are nigh on to impossible to collect when new to the game and few friends. Plus I spent money for gems 2 days ago and still don't have them. I don't want to have to add a bunch of people I don't know just to hope they will send the things I need. It is terrible that a special room has three treasure chests but you can only open if you have or buy the needed keys. The more difficult a puzzle is the more it costs(energy) you to play or buy a cure!!!
Dear development group, please note that you may get money from some people but it would be much more profitable to lower prices and have many players. I play to delete it soon. Have been playing 2 weeks and it is interesting and good puzzles but you are ripping people rather than gently easing them away from their cash. Also I probably would not have blasted this hard if that dang request for a review had not popped up so much. Be careful of what you ask for, you might just get it.

Change of review, four stars to one

I recently downloaded three G5 games because I love Secret Society. I got hidden city, paranormal and letters from nowhere. I have been playing successfully, finding the required objects within time, for about two weeks, every day two or three times and have yet to complete any of the collections. In one game, I don't have a single item in the collections! It seems the only way to get tools is to buy them, cause I can't collect them in the game either. In letters, there is a frost anomaly in the games, and once you get that, you can't play that location because ice covers the screen and you can't see. Again, it seems you must buy the sun tool to melt, because I can't seem to win them in the game. I have three locations with the frost that I can't play. I figure soon, every location will be in frost mode and the game will be over because I will not buy tools. In paranormal, if you tap the arrow to change rooms more than once, cause it doesn't always work because the area to tap is so small that if you miss it and do it again... you get a time penalty!

Needs a Lot of Work

Overall, for a matching game it is not so bad. It can be fun. The overall not being able to play for longer than 10 minutes or so at a time is a bit goofy. When you get a new level your energy is fully replenished. Too bad if you just started playing. That means if you care about that you have to consciously time when you choose to play and level to take advantage of that which is just stupid. Additionally, the crystal matching game is impossible. It is all luck and no skill is involved. I've been stuck on level 2 forever now with no possibility of completion beyond random chance. Many games result in several re-shuffles because there are no more matches. This needs work badly. The holiday events, as with most matching games, are dumb and a waste of time. I have been stuck trying to complete the second collection for weeks. Unless you are willing to dump ridiculous amounts of money into the game for the holiday events, you can never possibly complete them.
