The Secret of Moonwall Palace - Magic Can Be a Crime Reviews

Webshred - Does not work right on iPhone 5

What a piece of junk. The messages kept flickering in and out, or freezing on the screen and not going away. It was impossible to play the game. Finally gave up.

MooMoooo - Binoculars MISSING

Update seems to have removed the binoculars.

B-Boy J - Too many issues

This game looks good visually but it ends there. Without the hints (which I usually try not to use as I like the challenge) it would be impossible to guess what you're supposed to be doing sometimes. But it's the frustratingly slow loading speed for every little thing that made me give up on it. I got as far as the apartments before I just couldn't be bothered to go on. Sorry for bad review but needs much improvement.

Cops nemisis - Frustrated beyond belief

I agree that this game is terrible! I have never written a bad review but this game deserves it! The graphics are good but the interface is terrible. There should have been a tutorial explaining how to orient the iPhone as that is required to finish puzzles. Don't waste your time with this one. Play Broken Sword or Monkey Island. I couldn't get passed the part where you are supposed to kiss Isabel. I still don't know what you are supposed to do. What a stupid game that had a lot of potential if it wasnt for the idiotic interface.

Kingspiddy - Enjoy it if you love problems and never-ending bs.

This is one of the worst games I've ever had the displeasure of attempting to play. And I do mean attempting because this game is absolute crap. You cannot progress through the damn safe.

Golliex - The worst app EVER waste off money !!!!!!

Absolutely rubbish, doesn't load and when it finally does it freezes !!! Takes ages to load... Very disappointing !! You can not compare this to monkey island or broken sword !!

Andrew Hepler - Terrible game!!!! Worst one I've played yet!!!

Horrible story and setup!

Date: Device: 2.1 using The Secret of Moonwall Palace - Magic Can Be a Crime


Teasel4 - Poor

Not worth even 99¢. Unresponsive, slow to load...hard to believe it was worse before the "improvements". Also, can't get past the attic. Although getting to the attic and finding the watch was easy, i can't fine the binoculars. According to the hints the binoculars can be found on the beam. I can't find them there or anywhere else in the attic. Frustrating up until this point, now impossible.

Materluna - Waste of money

I love games like this but this has got to be the worst I've ever seen. Please don't get it. The interface is difficult to use the storyline is crud and the graphics are painful to even look at.

Point&click lover - Utter rubbish

Don't be fooled like me into thinking this will be a great point & click adventure or any adventure come to think of it. Story is rubbish, controls don't work well and the puzzles are too hard not because they need intelligence but because they don't make sense. Combine that with controls that don't work and a story you don't care about and u have 1 utterly crap game!!

I can't get past the guard and the hint says to talk to him but he does the same thing every time. ????? It needs to be easier then that and if not write a walkthrough like so many other games have.

Franncesca - AWFUL!

I've never written a review before, but this game is so terrible that I felt somewhat obliged to warn others that are considering buying it... Where do I begin? Firstly, and the worst and most frustrating bit about it... The STICKY joystick! It sticks more often than it doesn't. You're just stuck for ages on a stationery screen, swiping, pushing, stroking, BASHING that joystick so you can move across the screen. It has the sensitivity of a plank of wood coated in 6 inches of resin. When it DOES finally respond you are sent shooting in every direction, with hardly any control at all of where you freeze the screen. It makes you want to throw your iPhone out the window. Constantly crashing, and with no autosave that means having to start over again, and again, and again... Makes you lose the will to live. The constant reloading back to the beginning of a scene every time you don't do stuff in the order you're "supposed" to do stuff. The reloading is annoying enough, but shouldn't there be more than one way to find your way through an adventure/point and click game anyway? Part of the fun is to miss out on something occasionally and then have to revisit places to find something you didn't get first time around. Totally illogical puzzles. The sort of puzzles that you would NEVER figure out yourself without a walkthrough. And NOT because they are clever or challenging puzzles. They are the sort of puzzles where when you read the walkthrough, instead of thinking "Ahhhh, I GET it now!", you think, "I'd have NEVER figured that out in a million years!!!!" The characters are boring, a-dimensional and stilted. The dialogue feels as though it was written by a 9-year-old who speaks English as a second language, and the occasional attempt at humour is cringe-makingly awful. The story is convoluted, clichéd and silly. I did not feel drawn into it in any way whatsoever. I honestly don't know how this game even got past the testing process, if it even had one. I really thought iTunes was more particular about the games they sell? I know this sounds harsh, but hey, I feel totally ripped off. Even if it was free I'd be annoyed. I have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA how this game received ANY positive reviews. All I can think is it's the old thing with one developer exchanging good reviews with other developers, i.e. "Give me a good review and I'll give you one!" The graphics? Well, not too bad. But the characters are flat and have no personality at all. So, DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY! And to the developer: You've got an awful lot of work to do!

Only the second time I've downloaded a game without reading the reviews.. Disappointingly rubbish!! Harsh but true. I lasted two minutes before deleting from my phone. Broken sword this isn't!

Kaya86 - Don't bother

I have never written a review before, but had to with this app to save other people the time and money...honestly don't bother...game is very dull and controls are clunky...puzzles aren't clever like the developer believes they are...all in all a waste of time!

GeeeFlat - Rubbish.

I love good adventure games. Myst. Steel sky, broken sword etc. But this one is rubbish. Rubbish story line. Rubbish controls. Rubbish characters. Rubbish graphics. Rubbish loading times. Crashes. No proper autosave making you have to restart the whole game. Tedious. Boring. Deleted. Avoid.

Can't get the game to work. Waste of money.

Mattjp - Not impressed...

I bought this hoping it to be a good challenging game. The loading times however are extremely long for the little amount which needs to be loaded. Some puzzles just don't work either. I have to enter a combination into a safe and despite entering the right codes it does nothing. I know these numbers are definitely the right ones as I have checked online.

ectsang - Is that it?

The only reason this took me more than a few minutes to complete was because the interface was very cumbersome and I rarely knew what the game was asking me to do. Considering the slew of quality apps out there for .99 I feel completely ripped off paying 2.99 for this. I have no idea why this reviewed so highly.

extremely disappointed in developer for releasing this with all the bugs, improper grammar, inaccurate interactivity and inability to manually adjust music. It has potential, but it is not ready for prime time.

Seems to have good potential but I'm stuck on the 2nd bit & can't find any help on the web!! I assume I've got to do something with the watch..maybe it's something to do with the train departure board but haven't worked it out!!

GlennDesigns - Disappointing

I bought this game because of the great ratings & "customer" reviews. I was looking forward to an exciting adventure game with excellent writing and animation (Many "customer" reviews compared this game to some of the best available on iTunes). The writing in this game is below average. No animation...just a bunch of still frames. The art is totally amateur. The music is annoying. The actions are very limited and the controller is buggy. Nothing too challenging...just horribly dull. I have played many awesome adventure games but I felt pretty ripped off after reading these reviews and then seeing what this game is really like. Save your money!

Jennyy101 - Doesn't work

I can't get beyond the first screen either by tapping at the screen's extremities or by using the virtual joystick. Maybe a compatibility issue with iphone4?

Alsyorpal - Can't leave 1st scene either...

It's also jerky, dreadful controls and you have to put up with the waiting icon for 10 seconds after you try any action. AVOID! I don't know who wrote these reviews previously....game company staff I imagine...
