Happenings at the Fun Page!
Notice how I called this Happenings at the Fun Page and not anything in particular about Mystery Manor! I’ll get to that but I’m more interested in facilitating communication between the players of all games right now.
Seekers Notes and Secret Society
Many players have moved over to Seekers Notes and Secret Society so I thought I’d help by giving them a place for their friend codes. Here’s a page just for those Friend Codes and comments and communication.
I’m only going to be a casual player in Seekers Notes and just enjoy a little bit of time here and there.
Original Mystery Manor iPad
The original Mystery Manor iPad has finally put out the Back to School Event. I put the page from 2017 up for reference. I have a quest on the right side of my manor but nothing on the left.
GI has not communicated anything to me about this event and I’m not really playing the original game anymore. I have no quests to complete and GI is only going to push out old quest strings.
If you have problems and need to open a ticket for the original Mystery Manor iPad you will need to go to the Game Insight website. I noticed as I was looking for the specific link to Mystery Manor for the iPad that it is not an option. I’m sorry I don’t know what to tell you about filling out a support ticket.
I do know for a fact the the big red G! inside the game will just lock your game up and you will have to reboot. So, while they have clearly told players they will NEVER update this game but will provide support and repeat events it doesn’t look promising.
The New Mystery Manor for Android and iOS
The improvements in this game seem only to be for the income level on their end increasing. I’m sorry to be so blunt about this but they have taken 2 beautiful new rooms and turned them into horrors to search.
The Dressing Room and Bedroom have a list of changing items which is okay with me. However, when they make these items so tiny as to be a blob or shadow and expect us to distinguish them it’s crazy. We all gave them our feedback on the Bedroom and yet they still released the Dressing Room. This is a sign to me that they aren’t really listening to the players.
And let’s talk about new Phenomena. I have pictured the Bedroom in upside down mode above. I actually lock my iPad screen and turn it over to play. Already I’m dealing with items too small.
And then there’s the non-functional Hoarfrost. I have played this phenomena several times with the same result. I look at my list, you can pause the game and read the list if it helps, and then I swipe the screen to find items. However, I find I can only clear so much and it stops. I have to pick my finger up to start swiping again. This causes a tap which will deduct 15 seconds from your search time.
Seriously, they must not test this stuff or play it. And they must be developing on a large computer monitor to think those items are even close to findable.
I am told they are working on customized guilds. How hard could it have been to make people opt in to a guild. We have 5 good players in our guild. The rest never in come in to do anything. If you’re not going to participate in a guild and your guild is working on events then do the decent thing and leave so that maybe the guild playing can get playing members. Though it’s tough since it’s random. Who ever had the bright idea that this would be fun?
I am not enjoying the new game. I feel like if I make progress in any of the other rooms the next update will just wipe it all out. I don’t trust GI! There needs to be some significant changes to benefit the players before I would trust them to do the right thing.
