Pretty good, but a few problems

I do like this game. I have been playing since the week before Halloween. The Halloween special challenges were fun, and now the Thanksgiving ones are fun. The HO scenes are pretty challenging and I like that they change, so even though you go back to the same location things are not in the same place. Problems: there are too many night, and night terror modes because you run out of the tool to light up the scene and have to buy if you want to succeed at these scenes--annoying! Also annoying, when it keeps telling you that you can complete your collection because you have the main 5 items for it, but then you really can't complete because you don't have enough of these extra 4 items that you need. Either don't tell me that I am ready to complete until I actually am or get rid of the extra 4!!!! Finally, you don't build up much energy per level, so you can't play very long at the beginning unless you are willing to purchase. Again, annoying, but that is the nature of these type of games. Some you just move a little slower than with other games like this one. Over all, pretty good though!


**Update** I have played this game a little over a day and I have in the neighborhood of 18 quests open that I am trying to complete. I have leveled up and opened up new areas so fast that I have yet to try all the new areas. In short, this game is so busy with items, artifacts, collection items, games, etc that it became overwhelming VERY quickly. Even with the benefit of knowing the games basic layout due to Seekers Notes, I have gotten so buried in quests that I can't keep track of the story line or my goals. I play to relax and this is not relaxing at all. I will be deleting the game which is unfortunate as I really wanted to like it. I will leave it 3 stars as it is still well made even if it is not my cup of tea.

This game is similar to "Seekers Notes". It has a different story line off course, and the
puzzles and locations are different, but their are similarities in the general layout of the game. I am enjoying this one so far, but between the two I like Seekers Notes better because it is a bit simpler and cleaner in design. This game has lots of promise though, I will have to play it longer to see if I love it as much as the other.


I really LOVE this game! I can honestly say I have been obsessed with it! And I have spent way too much money on it, which I have never done before! But it's that engaging! But, like a previous reviewer, I saw how much money I've spent, and, when I could breathe again, I realized I either have to stop buying rubies OR quit the game completely! Well, that's not a good option as far as I'm concerned!
UPDATE: The Thanksgiving quest started and I finished the first collection - but I never got credit for completing it! I received the reward, but it still shows me finishing 0 out of 5 collections! So, guess what?!? The new task doesn't open and I'm stuck! I've sent 2 requests for help and have gotten NO response - and I've been pretty patient, I've been waiting over 2 weeks! In the meantime, I've been playing and playing trying to collect the items again but can't get the last one! I've spent a lot of time and, stupidly, a lot of money on this game, but I'm getting ready to delete it and post lots of negative reviews about G5 on Facebook! I have a lot of gaming friends and they need to be warned!
