Bonus game glitch

I downloaded this and decided to pay to unlock the game while it is on sale, but the game just shuts down when I press the unlock button or play button. I am using an iPod Touch 4th gen. (Actually, it is a 3rd generation. This game will not work on it.)
Update: I got through the first cut scene, touched the case notes and then it crashed and shut down again. I still crashes when I try to unlock it. Buyer beware if you want to try/buy this while it is on sale.
Update 2: I closed all the running apps, completely turned off my ipod, restarted it and then, was able to unlock game.
Update 3: I got an iphone 4s, so I was able to play this game finally. I was enjoying it until the bonus game. The screen is dark, although I am able to barely see the safe(?), but the game is not responding to touch. All that happens is the inventory will pop up, but I am not able to select anything. I certainly don't want to play the entire game again just to see if the bonus game will work if I uninstall/reinstall. I tried shutting the phone off, but it didn't work.

Shadow Lake

Boring and repetitive.
I could have been done with this one really fast....but I couldn't stay interested long enough to keep playing. Worst of the mystery case files in my opinion. I know some reviewers say otherwise, but I wholeheartedly disagree. It was just sad and ridiculous. I couldn't skip over "Casandra's" annoying babble, the controls aren't very responsive, some "clues" (sparkly areas) lead nowhere. Just made you feel like you needed to keep coming back to them but was pointless to do so. (Like bed and pictures in coroners room) I'm pretty sure that a LOT went into creating this game, but the game itself lacked. Big time. Sorry. But I paid my money so I will have my opinion. I would not purchase this knowing even 1/4 of what I know now. The free portion is very short.

Worth the download

I play or try basically every Big Fish inc game put out.. And this one is definitely worth the buy. I like how they threw something different in there - by giving mini pictures to match through out scenes. Sometimes these games get hum-dum, all the same. I always appreciate something a little different.

It's interesting, fun, not too hard or too easy. I definitely recommend the download. And this particular game is in my top list of favs put out by Big Fish.
