Boring...time waster. Typical G5!

This used to be a decent game until suddenly it changed one day out of the blue (must have been the update). Now you need charging items to complete collections and unfortunately these items are found in rooms that can't be opened because the key required to open the room is a figment of G5's imagination and not actually something that can be found or earned. Although they can be purchased for an obscene amount of gems which will require you to spend real money to buy.

Additionally, certain collection items which say they can be found by searching rooms in a specific mode actually can't so completing collections are impossible anyway. Why bother?

So bored searching the same old rooms for items that can and never will be found. Can't play with friends, can't wish list or gift, can't open new rooms (specifically wolf's lair, gallery & labyrinth)! Typical G5!

I _hate_ the 1.2 update. deceptive advertising.

One thing I always preferred about the gameplay of Hidden City (compared to Secret Society) was that you could find your components and build your collection.

In Secret Society, not only do you have to find your components, but you also need "glue" items to put them together. And you have to pick and choose which collections to make, because you have to allocate the same glue items among them.

More stress deciding. Less fun. More use-up-your-crystals to buy glue.

Hidden City 1.1 wasn't like that. No glue.

The "In the Update" blurb for Hidden City 1.2 praises all the new scenes and quests, but doesn't mention the addition of a downright demanding set of glue items to put a collection together.


Bait and switch. Downright deceptive. It doesn't make the game any more fun - it makes it more expensive.

Slow and dull since update

Since the update, I'm not getting anywhere in the game. I keep playing the same locations over and over. The challenges require special "effects" that don't appear often or a location requires a special item to gain access that doesn't show up. The game is becoming boring. It needs a booster of its own. I'm not spending money to get what I need because there is no guarantee it will show up anyway.
