Customer Reviews

I like this game but...

I really like this game. I like the event quests and the stars for the random gifts. But, it's very difficult to earn the items needed to combine collections. I have collections that have 200 or more items in them, but I can't figure out how to earn the things to be able to combine them. I'd really like to be able to search the event collections so that I can find specific ones, especially on a timeframe.

It is very difficult to earn enough events to win the event collections. I have to play the special event puzzle many times (10-15) to even earn one collection item, and when it takes playing other puzzles 10 times or more to earn enough to play one special event, it's very disheartening. I run out of energy too fast, especially when some of the puzzles need 80+ just to play one round. The energy replenishes too slowly (it takes more than 24 hours to replenish the bank fully). I'd like the option to be able to earn additional energy. I'd be willing to watch add to earn extra energy so I can keep playing.

Hidden City

This would be an awesome game if it wasn't for the fact that it takes forever to complete a task. Very difficult to achieve anything in this game. I have all the components to get an amulet or whatever is needed and the game won't allow me to retrieve them. It's entirely too long for the energy levels to be replenished, if you purchase anything (I refused to) it still won't guarantee that you will be able to complete the task given, some of the areas ...the expedition area, crystal, and other parts of the game are sometimes very difficult to complete. I think this game is quite enjoyable, but too frustrating to play at times. The developers need to really fix the bugs in this game. Also I was playing the game and it literally changed everything...I don't know. Now I can't receive any of the magic gifts, the Room of Fate...completely change and I have completed my objectives in the area but it didn't give me the amulet or artifact needed to go to the next level. It showed me that I earned it, but I never received it. Again, this game is frustrating and I'm ready to delete it.


I really enjoy this game but for the last 3 days instead of giving actual words to look for it says unknown # the # is always different but I have no idea what I'm looking for. Also the print is very tiny and I can't read the names of people who visit my game so I visit every icon with the same picture. Another thing that is a drawback is I do not like to spend money on a game, I work 2 jobs just to make ends meet and it's frustrating that to get anything accomplished you have to buy things or open chests that you've earned.
It's really too bad because I really enjoy hidden object games and I love the mini games as well but I don't see playing much longer with all the glitches and need for money
