I'm enjoying this game however I went back to it just now after nearly 24 hours of using my energy up and I only had 6 energy? The same amount I had when i turned it off yesterday, I got the notification though to say my energy was full though so I guess it's a glitch :/ hope they fix it soon else I'm not gonna be able to play

This has the potential to be a good game, but there is a massive pay wall that severely limits play and pretty much ruins it for me.

It's unfortunate, because this is the kind of game I'd gladly pay $5-10 to just buy a full version of and be able to play without restraints. Instead, I won't pay a penny for it because the cost to get any enjoyment out of it is so outrageous. I know it's the way things are now, but I don't see myself ever getting used to it. Here's a breakdown of the spending potential in USD.

$10 gets you 110 game cash, which can be exchanged for 180 energy. 180 energy is good for 12 scene plays (15 energy each), which translates into about 10-15 minutes of play. I'm not sure how many different scenes you'll have to investigate for each level, but there are 6 on level 2 (level 1 is a tutorial and doesn't last long). Getting 5 stars on each scene probably takes around 15-25 plays, depending on how quickly you are able to find the objects. Assuming the rest of the levels have 6 scenes each, that is about 15,000 energy you'll need to complete levels 2-12 (11 levels x 6 scenes x 15 plays per scene x 15 energy per play).

Ignoring the level up energy refills and times when you would let it recharge by itself, that would cost 9,000 game cash to buy the energy needed to play it without restraints. The largest game cash bundle they sell is 1,300 for $99.99. So you basically would have to spend $700 to play the current levels, and that may even be a low estimate if there are more scenes in the later levels or if you're on the higher side of my plays per scene required estimate. Plus, I'm assuming there will be more levels added later.

Tread carefully.

Not a chance in hell with that kind of pay wall. Thanks for the demonstration, SlightReturn. Companies like Ubisoft are making a huge mistake if they are banking on people paying that kind of money to play games like these. Hate to tell them, but most people are not that starved for entertainment. I sincerely hope that efforts like these fail miserably, so that devs come back to their senses, and sell us complete games, without the pathetic cash-grabbing schemes that are so common now on the App Store.

What a waste of a good franchise this is !

Irony is there's nothing hidden about Ubisoft's crimes.
