  • Absolutely amazing!

    By 6friesens
    I love the idea and originality of this game, the sound effects and how you can tap on mostly anything and you get a response back. I hope you all plan to make more levels!
  • The sound effects are a scream!

    By Suzzemom
    This is my favorite game ever! I love finding all the little objects, figure out where some may be hidden, or how to get to them. The sounds effects get me laughing all the time! I hope there are more and more and more updates!
  • So, Poor corporate structure forces in app purchases?

    By Spencer Garlick
    ...I get it, you need to pay rent & eat. And you had 6 people working for 9 months on the update. (This reasoning only implies poor decision making by the developer). So, to use that as your excuse to start charging your customers is ridiculous. (It makes you sound like you're blaming customers for bad developer decisions and making your customers the bad guys... how are you the abused party. When I purchased the app It was supposed to include new levels, how is that my fault? So don’t be a jerk about it! My opinion, you should have someone else respond to your app reviews.) If you wanted to change up the structure of the app in such a change from when it was released... I would have suggested releasing a “Hidden Folks 2” then the Beach puzzles could be included as the first “World” unlocked with the purchase of the app. Then charge a nominal fee (maybe .50¢) to add new levels, then you can have “sales” and “bundles” to reduce the cost to users, but still profitable enough to keep an income to your business. This would keep your 6 employees busy on current content, and as a level is finished, you can add to the app, then you’ll see a more immediate return of your investment in development (instead of waiting for 9 months) You can actually still do this... by developing an interactive landing page to the app with an option of “Play” and another option of “add levels” to the current app layout and release as “Hidden folks 2” (yes, I know I’m over simplifying it, and Yes I know it’s more difficult than “just” adding a splash/landing page). You can also add a “news feed” where your patrons can see what your working on, even offer a “developer test levels”... maybe add test levels to a subscription and call them mini-levels, where a player can play and have an option to give feedback for level; themes/design/mechanics. These can be levels that are only available for a day or a week, then removed, but for people that like the app and want to help improve can pay something like 25¢ to $1 per month and get access to content that may never be released as a permanent level... you can even offer the mini-levels as purchasable if you wanted... That would have been my suggestion if I was part of the decision process. But as the developer you decided to go a different route, and you are at risk of alienating your current customers by basically calling hem greedy and blaming them for your financial distress in a possible inability to pay your employees or rent. This was a 5 Star app, -2 stars for adding in app purchases when they weren’t part of the original purchase. -1 Star for you disregard for your customers and treating them like bad greedy people. I do like the app, so I am now trying to decide if I should delete the app, or purchase the level. Honestly I am leaning towards deleting. But I’ll give it a week, reset my app... find everything in current levels then decide if it’s worth it to me to pay for new levels. I can always download the app at a later date. But my in-app purchase budget has been going to Clash Royale the last few months for emotes, and cannot purchase anything in this app for at least another month or few. Unless the app is no longer available... that is if you’re already having problems paying employees, rent and food. The days of this app/game are probably numbered.

  • Where’s Waldo on Steroids

    By EvNChris
    I don’t really play iOS games but Hidden Folks is different! I had so much fun searching for all the objects in the game. I was sad to see it end. It’s challenging and addictive! Well done to all who worked on this game!
  • Enjoyable

    By Kuhlbreze
    I really enjoyed this game. At first I had trouble figuring it out. I found it was fun figuring the little tricks out. Great game!! Thanks!
  • Scam

    By stonzee
    I bought the beach update and now it’s locked. You took my money and scammed me. Don’t waste your money on this scammer.
  • If you like find-ems!

    By Treypeters
    Fun game, really relaxing. Great spin on those Where’s Waldo or Highlights game. More fun than I thought.
  • Love the game... so much.

    By Katerang
    Hey I love this game don’t get me wrong it was totally worth the buy and then new stuff would come out occasionally and it made it an even better buy... But now they want me to give more money and I understand there are new features with the beach levels but I just want to play guys and I already paid the first time.... Still five stars cuz I love the game. Just a bit sad cuz I literally can’t afford this update for myself this holiday season... and the game is so freaking good.
