Phenomenal game, but...

I love this game for many reasons. First, the atmosphere is amazing. You really feel like you are in their shoes and even in that time period. Second, it feels open at all times. You always feel like you can move around a decently large area. Third, it is not just a hidden object game. You also play interesting mini games, move around between rooms, and talk to people in the environment. It is more than just levels. Fourth, the hidden object part are really cool. It is pretty interesting to be able to look closer at things and interest with drawers and whatnot. There are so many reasons to love this game.

As much as I love this game though, the energy system is seriously terrible. I don’t always hate the energy mechanic in games, but this is simply way too much waiting for not nearly enough playing. If you made the energy regain faster, even if it just went from 1 every 8 minutes to 1 every 5 minutes, that would be a significant improvement. I stopped playing for a few hours, came back, and could only tap 4 items. That is ridiculous. I’m still rating this 3 stars though, because the rest of the game is so great. If this is fixed, then this will be the easiest 5 star rating I’ve ever given. (Also, if you added a one time purchase for unlimited energy, I would buy it in a heartbeat. As long as it isn’t like $10-20, that would be ridiculous.) Thanks for your time.

Developers?

I wish my review didn’t echo so many others, but unfortunately it does. I truly love the game, as so many others do. The design is beautiful, the characters are intriguing, great storyline; it’s clear you have some talented people working for you. And like so many others have mentioned, the energy system is frustrating the way it is now. I’m wondering why this game is so different from others that are like it when it comes to using the energy to advance? It seems to me like there are so many solutions to this, where you as the developers could still make money on this game and your gaming audience could feel heard and have their needs validated. Perhaps there could be a way for players to earn more energy besides just waiting? In your CookingFever game, which I’ve played for a long, long time, there is a slot machine that dispenses gems daily to advance us through gameplay. I have heard tell of ads that others have watched to gain more energy, although I have not seen that option on my own game. Or perhaps the amount of energy could double from 1 to 2 every 8 minutes? Even this small change in the next update could placate so many of your fans. It could show them that you actually take their feedback into account. Just some thoughts :)

Really fun, but SLLOOOOOWWWW energy regeneration

This seems to be the assessment of all the reviews, so I’m just confirming what everyone else is saying - the game is really well done, I love how you can roam around, interact with things, play mini games, look further into hidden object scenes . . . Gorgeous.
* Energy regeneration - So. Slow. 1 point every 8 min., unless that’s been changed by the time you read this.
* Spending said slowly-regenerated energy points - Most actions require 5 energy points, some up to 20!
* The one saving grace (aside from the otherwise beautiful and creative game), AND THIS IS WHY I GAVE THEM 5 STARS, INSTEAD OF 4 - free points for watching videos! I haven’t figured out the exact schedule they offer these free videos on, but around once a day, or once every other day, you can watch a video to earn 20 points. Some days I have been able to regenerate my entire 200 points, other days the videos just keep coming and I store up 400 to 500 points! I will forgive them their slow energy regeneration simply due to the fact that it is possible, however unpredictably, to earn these free points. Big thanks to the creators of the game for this option!
