Good game but recent changes aren’t for the better.

I’ve been playing Criminal Case for a couple of years, moving continuously from one game to the next, upping my level, improving the capability of my helper animal, and keeping my friends.
On moving to the Mysteries of the Past games I was forced onto a different app, losing all my player friends, my animals and my status.
Gaining energy and coins now depends almost entirely on watching ads, which I resent. I find playing the games has less challenge, less room for strategy.
I’m continuing to play, but I hope it’s creators will reconsider some of their changes.

Case open

I’ve been playing this game for over four years now, what I like is even though you have finished the game you can go back if you want to increase your scores, each level gets harder but then you know the game so it won’t make that much of a challenge, challenging your friends and family it becomes a talking point I normally help others in the case with who the killer is and they help me
Just enjoy the game 👍❤️

Very enjoyable

I have been playing Criminal for years now. I wasn’t happy when losing everything I’d earned (money, stars and friends) when moving onto Mysteries of the Past. My original friends still play Criminal but I can’t get energy etc from them anymore, and now only have two friends who play Mysteries. The game itself is very enjoyable outside of all the adverts, of which there are many and I never make use of them. They are a big nuisance and would be the reason I’d stop playing this game. But I do like the crazy story lines.
