The best hidden object game I've ever played

I've played a lot of hidden object games and this by far is the best one yet the price is fantastic for how much is in the game and the amount of chapters and mini chapters is amazing I couldn't put the game down it was so good. The story is great, not a bit boring or usual like almost every other hidden object game. PLEASE make more games with this charater I will defititly buy every one. Thank you for making a fantastic game and anyone out there who likes hidden object games definitely buy this one!!!!

Cate West: The Vanishing Files

Have not yet completed game. A lot of the hidden objects are way too difficult to spot on an I pod. May be great for an I pad but frustrating on much smaller screen. Even though this game says that it has multiple endings depending on player's score, I am going to quit and delete this game after I am done with it. Even my friends were exasperated with finding the objects. And then there were times that I could not make out the object even with the Hint showing me the location of the object. This game certainly is challenging but you had better have better than 20/20 vision.

Cate mystery

The story and activities are interesting. The graphics are sharp but so tiny on the iPhone that it is difficult to see many of the items you need to find. Zooming in is very limited and doesn't help much and this makes the game frustrating. You shouldn't be penalized for extra tapping when you can't be sure an item is one on the list or not. In some scenes you can't see the blue hint circle. This is just not designed well for the iPhone. I won't be buying the game.
