Some of the riddles are far too obscure with little information, which could be answered in a couple different ways. like being told one name could be switched to make it alphabetical order, in truth it could have been either or. Ads went on a little too long, I wouldn't have minded them if they didn't stay on the screen for longer than 30 seconds. Some items were difficult to click on, like the daily books but other than that this is a decent free game. Had fun.

I really like the puzzles and overall story. The hints are actually useful so if I'm stuck, they usually help me solve the puzzle. There are a lot of ads but manageable. The controls are difficult to use though and there is at least 1 bug where I can't pick up the Daily book on Day 8, which is frustrating. I see it but can't seem to click on it.

Did I just pay nearly $10 dollars to remove ads and didn't? The game is great, has storyline and minu pizzles fun to solve. Graphics and smoothness of their movements are amazing. But. Every door you open, every character you speak to, every thing you interact with gives you an ad that you can't skip. Then there goes your salvation, pay to remove ads and play ad-less. But does it really remove them? NO. Don't waste your money, it does not help you with the ads situation.
