  1. I like this game very much but have a question ” why have you made it that it takes so long to attain gold stars ? “, it is very frustrating only being able to do half the task , please try to remedy this thank-you . I don’t want to stop playing but at the moment I feel it takes too long thank-you Gillian

    1. Gillian,

      First of all, we just provide game guides, we have nothing to do with Pretty Simple games, which is Criminal Case developer. It is true though, that they’ve raised the bar way too high, I guess lots of people are buying cash to get energy so they don’t feel the need to make it any easier for you to obtain those stars.

    1. Did you complete the task “Investigate Next Case” that appears right after you get 100% completion in Case #2 Additional Investigation of Corpse in a Garden?

    2. One more thing, remember that your friends, the ones you sent the 3 reports requested by the captain, need to log in to the game and ACCEPT the request, until the three reports are sent back, you wont be able to access the Case #3, unless you buy 20 cash with 2 US dollars.

    3. You need to keep asking people on facebook, not just your teamates to give you a report…………only people who play can give reports and they can only give 1 report each when you have 3 reports you will be aloud to play case 3

  2. help me on case 4 please
    btw, thanks very much
    this walkthrough very helpfully
    and I just wondering if quickgamer have the screenshot with “the click things” of the crime scenes
    (example on the breakfast table, there are snake, scorpion, newspaper, pizza, steak, etc)
    thanks again :)

    1. You first need a computer powerful enough so the game flows properly and doesn’t lag. Second, you need to figure out a clicking sequence so the objects you click on are near each other. Finally, yes, only a few can complete the 60 objects achievement.

    2. The more you play, the faster you get. You start to remember where everything is. I have done it many times, and have gold crowns (number 1 player) with those puzzles.

    3. With practice, I have made it to 47 and I’m positive i can get to 60 in 60 if i manage to memorize were all of those are.

    4. i got to 59, and i even had time over but didn’t know where that one thing was… also the longer you play the more time you get. in the beginning you get 40 sec, and it goes up to at least 70.

    5. i can find all object in 30 seconds or less.. the key is you have to practice.. i often get the time attack scenes to 5 stars first before others.. >_< ..

  3. It costs 1 star to arrest a suspect, if you pick the wrong one do you lose the star??? If so, who is the killer in Case 3?

  4. Hey Quickgamer….

    First of all you guys did a wonderful job by adding such details of cases…..keep it up……
    i just wanna ask can you explain how scoring of points calculated in crime scene? i observed when i clicked 47 items in 60 secs.i scored more than when i clicked 52 items in 60 secs. I understand the concept of hint bonus of friend but how X2, X3 ,..X6 works when i click the item???

    1. Great question. Although we cannot provide you with the exact formula to calculate the score, we are 100% sure of the following:

      If you manage to click the right items up to the point of getting to the X6 part of the bar and STAY THERE finding other objects, you will get a multiplier effect on points scored
      As you progress through the scene, subsequent stars need more points to be earned, this is why you end up spending a ton of energy while getting the last star, and if you manage to take a look at our screenshots before doing the scene and memorize the objects, you can get the first star with almost in just a couple of sessions.

      Regarding the scenario you point out, you have probably missed a click and lost the entire bonus bar, thus missing the multiplier effect for a while.

    2. Thanx for the reply…..
      I,m also confused in 1 thing…when i play with a team mate in crime scene….2-3 friends of mine plays shown up with full 5 hint bonus while other play with 1-2 hint bonus..
      Can you tell me how the full 5 hint bonus reach for a team mate n how it works??

    3. Another good question. We are not sure how you get 5-hint team mates, but it’s highly likely that the ones that have a 5-hint play the game frequently. Another possibility is that there’s a daily quota, we’ve only seen up to three team mates showing all hints, but that after that it just goes down.

    4. if ur teammates claim the daiy bonus regularly u get the 5 hint teammate. Even if they dont play they just need to login and claim the bonus for u to get the 5-hint teammate…if they accidentally miss claiming the bonus for a day … the hint goes down to 1.. i have 10 5-hint teammates who claim their daily bonuses almost regularly.

    5. Thanks for the info, we thought it wasn’t necessary to claim the bonus, just login to the game was enough, but since the bonus windows is the first thing that shows up anyways.

    6. it depends on the frequency of the user playing the game. if you don’t log in for a day you will lose one hint point. that means the daily player who plays everyday gets 5 hints, the one who only got 4 hints means they missed a day to play, and so on.

    7. Just want to let you know when a player is missing one day the hint goes back at 1 it take 5 consecutive day to build back the hint points to 100.000 points from your friends and to have your potato chips since dec 10 i play and notice that from some friends never miss a day i know some friends had miss day of playing and their hint had drop from 5 to 1

    8. I believe the number of hints is the level of daily bonus the friend is on.. just a speculation though..

    9. Hi all,, I was wondering why I do not have any gold crowns in 1 and 2..I have completed them both and it does not show that I have any crowns.but in 3 it shows up in the corner of three of the scenes I completed… that I have gold crowns..grrr .also is there a help button anywhere in the game? Thanks..Have a wonderful day!!

    10. It has to do with the rankings you have achieved in each scene. Check again what’s your position on each one of them.

    11. So do I have to keep playing 1 and 2 even though I have all the stars? To get a higher score (more points)
      or crown?

    12. The gold crowns are earned in each scene, based on your score. You have to be the number 1 player (the highest scorer) among your friends to get the gold crown. 2nd place scorer is the silver crown, 3rd place scorer is the bronze crown. To get the gold crown for the entire case, you have to complete ALL of the stars in each scene; you have to earn 5 stars in each scene of that case.

    1. It is. Mind you, we’ve seen cheat engines that do the clicking for you. If you see a person in your rankings that always gets super high scores, they are using it for sure.

    2. Hi there, when I select friends to help me to unlock case 3 the game freezes, it does the same if i send gifts or cards. Does anybody know what to do ?
      keep the good work

    3. Well, do the usual, try to do the same exact thing but using another browser. If the game throw the same error, you could post the message in the official facebook app page, since Pretty Simple Games has not yet created a forum for Criminal Case.

    4. I have noticed that my game freezes while sending free energy if one of the people I am sending to is no longer a friend of mine on facebook. I had to unfriend them from the game and not send them anything for it to continue working again.

    5. it is possible. i think the limit is I got a by myself. If they scored more than a million and a hundred thousand there’s a big possibility that they’re using cheats.

    6. I have received high scores very close to 1 million, and I don’t use any kind of cheat engine. I wouldn’t even know where to get that. I just persevered, and kept playing until I got the high scores. I just today found out that the highest scores come after all 5 stars have been earned, and you play for only 5 energy.

    7. yes it is possible i did 1 020 000 points in the time bonus without the clicking thing just be relax and concentrate some scene are easier then the other and you have to make sure to really click on the thing like the pencil the paper clip ect are harder once you study with the tip i gave earlier and click exactly on the item you can do it i think i did some in 45 sec when they gave me 70 sec to do the scene and usually it’s on the 5th star you can earn 1.000.000 points

    8. I’ve scored around 1,015,000 in a couple of time attack scenes. But only reached that in the fifth star or beyond (playing for 20xp) with 5 hints. At that stage you’ll obviously remember the positions of all the items, the clicking speed will vary the score (mainly the time bonus)..

    9. In a regular scene, that I had played a lot and had 5 stars, I got to 1.07M with the “6+s” bonus selected for $3,000 when I started. I kept the click pace up so that the 6+s stayed full.
      It’s best to do this with a 5-hint game, to max your points.

    10. yes it is.. and you don’t have to use cheat engines.. time attack is my favorite scene in all cases.. i play it over and over again.. i usually get 1 million+ score on time attacks..

    11. I have gotten over a million points on quite a few of the cases without buying a power up and I have never used a cheat program, so I have to wholeheartedly disagree with your statement “If you see a person in your rankings that always gets super high scores, they are using it for sure.”

  5. Hope these help. They helped me :) and forgive if I missed anything.

    1. Uh, Turk, I believe you missed two. The hanging lamp has 888 on it and the baseball under the shade.

  6. who is the killer on case 2? ive read the guide, and it doesnt mentions the killer. i dont want to lose my star by clicking the wrong suspect. thanks.

  7. do you can mention why in case the suspect kill the victim? My Notebook always lag. and i can’t read that carefully.. by the way.. thanks for your help.. its very helpfull.. :)

    1. Do you mean including the dialogues?. Maybe that’s a bit too much and would not add anything valuable to our walkthroughs.

    2. When playing the game, make sure you have fully cleaned the cache and that is the only tab you have opened. Chrome, when used without addon, is the lightest of all browser and the game will run smoothly there.

    1. Yes, you can. But only once you have fully finished the additional mission for each case. The stars gained can be applied on any case you want.

  8. I have one question.I finished the the 2nd case and when i want to ask friends to give me reports the game craches.What i have to do?

    1. Close the Browser and that open it again ..

      if it didn’t work .. clear the browser cookies, restart the browser than open the game

      after that the game should work perfectly =D

  9. I have been awarded a “Free” plaid hat from One Tooth Sam for returning a missing gold tooth to him and was told it could be found in my inventory. Where do I look for it because I can’t seem to see it anywhere in any of my avatar tabs.

    1. Just keep completing all tasks that appear in your tablet, and that includes finishing the additional mission.

  10. how many additional cases shud v solve in case 3…? am stil gettin an additional case after de one u mentioned above… plz help..

    1. No, there’s only 1 additional mission. After you finish it, you will the task “Go To The Next Case”, or “Unlock Next Case”, thats the only one you need to worry about.

  11. is ter any way to get a star quickly? the 1st star can be easily obtained after 2 few games… but de final star s takin a lot of games.. wat to do?

    1. The first and second star in all crime scenes are easier to obtain. Specially when you have friends that play daily and have the full hint bar.

    2. Hello,
      the 1st star always takes 4 at most to unlock .. and you can unlock it even faster if you first find the object by looking for them that clicking on them all at the same time and fast .. like that you will get PERFECT SCORE.

      the 2nd star it will take you 7 to 8 times to complete it only if you are fast in locating the objects ..

      so, first locate the object by looking for them that collect them FAST AND ALL AT THE SAME TIME WITHOUT STOOPING

  12. Hi there is there any other way i can have more energy pts i am on case 8 and a tip for gamers is each time i go to investigate a place on the first time before i start is i press print screen Sysrq button and paste it on paintthen on paint save the image or scene as the name of the scene EX the dock 1 case #3 then study it for about 20 or 30 min then go back into my game sometimes only with 1 (20) energy point i can fill a star you don’t have to study while your time is running in your game i better lose couple sec the first time i play a scene then lose min to look for only 1 item

    1. You need to buy the energy food with the game cash you obtained. Simply run out of energy and click on any Crime Scene to let the food purchase window appear.

    1. the jacket is on the right side of the screen next to the salad..the arrow it’s under the basketball..i don’t know about the aerial

    2. Thanks. I think I’ve spotted the aerial now sandwiched between the locker with Pi on top and said jacket. I was looking for a feathered arrow, lol

  13. Good evening,
    First of all, i want to thank you for helping us solve the cases ..
    I have some Q about the game:
    1- Dose the energy Bar increase when we finish certain case >> or it will stay at 110 for ever !?

    2- at what level i get to rank up from a deputy to another rank?


    1. I believe that “Cool Down” refers to when you click incorrectly too many times while searching for an item. I’ve gotten it once or twice but not recently.

  14. When I have worked on a scene there is a message to reward the ‘hint’ friend with a playing card. If I skip this, what happens to the card? I’ve been playing with a lot of ‘friends’, should have full hints value as I haven’t missed a day but only received three cards.

  15. What is the deal with ranking up? None of my friends have posted “chips” in days. Do we have to keep adding newbies to get the chips?

  16. Hi Where are the thumbnails you are talking about that you can study to memorize where thins are to increase your scores. Thank you in advance for your help.

  17. Is it easier to play on computer, I use my tablet. Also on case 2 the torn list I cannot examine it for some reason it doesn’t come up.

  18. Hope someone can help me! I am playing case #2 while waiting for my last report to open case #3. Now on case #2, it does not say my name for the high score but gives an id#. It also has my name as another player. Also, I can’t open case #3 to buy the 3rd report that I need. Does anyone have any suggestions??

    Thanks in advance

  19. Admin Please help me, I’m in case no- 4 and i have only two more friends in the case but I’m Ranked-22. Is this a bug???
    Moreover, I’ve earned gold crown in many crime scenes but then also my name is not on the top. Please help me out with this!

    1. Exactly, since you need to spend energy to get the food it seems contradictive. HOWEVER, if you just plan to store energy, meaning, you don’t play new scenes, simply store up food for whenever you plan to go forward with the new case.

    2. i use the 5 energy game play when I am almost ready to level up.. that way i can spend 5 energy points a few times and get 20 exp points every time.. then after i rank up, i get a full energy bar again!

  20. Hi, I am done with the Roadside, Wrecked House and Roadside Bonus in the case #1 and in case #2 done with Junkyard garden, Dirty Bathroom, Abandoned house bonus, Mini Market, Market Shelves, Mini Market Bonus… I am stuck at level 13 with $1 and full energy.. and click on case #3, it is asking for the reports from the friends… been waiting for long for reports from friends but none are sending.. how can i go to the next case or any other places i need to identify in the 2 cases i had completed to go further..

    please advice and thanx in advance…


  21. Is it possible to reach 1 million in a scene (other than time attack) without using cheat engines? (I never use cheat engines and can only reach

    1. Yes, it’s possible, but only when filling up the fifth star of each regular scene and performing well.

    2. hi there….i just write about that…998,00?for me it’s only 992,00 in 10sec my best score!how did you succeded it?is there any way??

    3. Hi vivi, once you have filled all the stars in a case and unlock that case for 5 energy instead of 20 energy, your able to find more objects or have a longer timed game…and as long as you keep up the ‘bonus’ bar at the top; your score will be increased to a level better than when collecting the stars!

    1. Look,when you arrested the suspects,you can see the killer s profiles.Mr.Colletti is not a smoker,but his daughter is a smoker and Jennifer s killer.

  22. hi there…i have only one question and it’s really simpe…how to make high scores….i understand that if you finish a scene and then the game asks you to give 5 energy an d play again it’s possible to have a score let’s say 990,200 in 10 seconds….but i have seen some of my friends reaches 995,00…how it is possible?

    1. it is posssible! i also have a score of 1,102,002 in the Breakfast Table Scene! we have to find things as fast as u can i am very fast at this game! πŸ˜€

    2. hey quickgamer.. who is the killer in case 2?? i really don’t know who it is.. i have only two suspects,, dave simmons and dennis brown..who among these 2 is the killer?? thanks.. :)

  23. When I get towards the end of a case I have the option to “get 5 stars on all crime scenes” but I don’t know how to do it??? Please help!!!

    1. you just to investigate next case…. if you wanna complete the task.. you will be awarned a gold medal

  24. Although I dont require case 1 walk through but still it is missing on your website as your website says case 1,2, and 3 guide

    Still Website is very helpful

  25. Why is it that we *must* play the additional investigations in order to unlock the next case? I’ve already earned 20 stars to make a successful arrest — I’m ready to move on – why can’t they be optional? Also, why isn’t there a forum for this game?

    1. Well, that’s how the game works. The game developers need to make a living of it, thus the additional investigation is a good incentive to buy energy food to speed up things a bit.

  26. Case:1
    VICTIM: Rosa Wolf
    WEAPON: Bloody Knife
    KILLER: Matt Barry
    SUSPECTS: Matt Barry, “I FORGOT”
    LOCATION: Roadside, Wrecked House
    BONUS STAGE: Roadside Bonus

    VICTIM: Ned Dillard
    WEAPON: Bloody Saw
    KILLER: Dennis Brown
    SUSPECTS: Joe Stern, Dave Simmons, Tony Marconi, Maria Sanchez, Dennis Brown
    LOCATION: Junkyard Garden, Dirty Bathroom, Mini-Market, Market Shelves
    BONUS STAGE: Abandoned House Bonus, Mini-Market Bonus

    1. I would also like to know this, searched and searched and cant seem to find the answer. if anyone knows please share x

    2. Tazzer and Aman, I believe you get promoted by continuing to do the additional investigation tasks that keep getting offered. I was promoted several times without being aware of it until later, but I had done the tasks of going back to give additional help to the other suspects who were innocent. You also gain coins energy, and points for moving up. Check the trophy icon, and it will give you a better idea. This game is one, I feel, where slow but steady wins the race. The more coins you have, the better, because you can then buy hints to make up for all those one-hint friends, and the more hints left after a search, the more points you gain.

    3. Level 05 – Promoted to Deputy
      Level 12 – Promoted to Detective
      Level 20 – Promoted to Corporal
      Level 32 – Promoted to Sergeant
      Level 45 – Promoted to Lieutenant
      Level 60 – Promoted to Captain
      Level 75 – Promoted to Major
      Level 100 – Promoted to Inspector
      Level 125 – Promoted to Lead Inspector
      Level 150 – Promoted to Commander
      Level 275 – Promoted to Deputy Chief
      Level 200 – Promoted to Commissioner
      Level 250 – Promoted to Sheriff
      Level 300 – Promoted to Ranger

  27. I was wondering if you notice it when someone else captures the gold crown. Not in the ranking-list after you’ve completed the scene but in the scene selection where you can see what crowns you’ve earned and select the scenes (duh) πŸ˜› I’m trying hard to earn gold crowns now but if you can’t see anything of it later it would be for nothing. I like seeing #1 on top. Sucks that there are cheat-engines though, I guess it will be impossible to beat them at a higher level. I don’t get why people like to “win” that way.

  28. if you can make a list of the objects required to be found in every scene it would be of great help, we can then study the scene carefully and locate the objects before we start the game. Thanks :)

    1. From case 11 on, we will pinpoint all objects on each scene screenshot and list them below. It would be awesome if you guys can send us older scenes marked up.

  29. Hi pls help me iam playing case 3 1st chapter i hav evidence the panties but i dnt know how to play ( Examine Panties ) pls guide me wat 2 do

  30. How come when I complete the offer for the6 650 cash, 1200 energy etc., it doesn’t work. It always says that I didn’t complete #3 which I have on several occasions.

  31. Does it really cost $70.00 for 100 energy points?? That’s only 5 times playing a game since it cost 20 energys for each game!!!

  32. My partner and I started playing Criminal Case at the same time, but every time we start a new scene, she requires almost twice as many points as I do to earn each star. Is there any reason for this? Is it based on our relative rankings or numbers of team-mates? As it happens she has one more team mate than I do.

  33. consulta como hago para llenar mas mis indicios osea mis amigos cuando me tiene de jugador apoyo… ellos me ven con uno solo …y te da 20 y cuando tienees los 5 te da 100??? como es ayuda?

  34. im on case2 corpse in junkyard and found the torn list i have a star but when i click on it to examine it gives me a white/grey screen and says restore how do i play this?

  35. hi,
    in Mini-Market scene,,,i’m scoring max 780000 and i’m finding the items very fast,,,,,,i heard some talking about Time Bonus they said you’ll have to find the items in 80 secs,,,,,how to get this timing ??? can’t find how to get 80 secs :(

  36. In the last week, my games have double in speed/ time. The clock seems to tick faster, my bars lose energy faster. It’s as if things have been speeding up on me, now, im not making squat for points.What gives? Did I not get a memo?

  37. Hi, I am trying to achieve the “quick as lightning” star, and the best I am able to do is 8 energy points… I just can’t seem to get to 9. I am on case no. 5, the Russian Case, is there a website where I can get the clues to help solve the puzzles to be able to score a 9? Thanks.

  38. Am I missing something. Why does it take so long to get engery. Seems like you would want people to have more gaming time

  39. I have to get over three times as many points to get a star compared to a family member on the same case same level. Requested to fix this and have been asked to provide my FB ID which I did 14 days ago still no response or fix. Is support always this bad?

  40. I wanted to know, how the scoring is done in hidden object scenario of criminal case. It looks me like on first correct click u get 25000, on second 30k*multiplier and so on, but i m not sure.. thnx in advance

  41. I am playing this game through Facebook and I am on case #2. I have a touch screen that I use to play it and I can not figure out how to reconstruct the torn piece of paper. All it is, is a grey screen and I can’t figure out what to do with it. Please help!

  42. I have the option to “Get 5 stars on all crime scenes”. When I click the link, “GO”, the several crimes scenes are blinking, but I don’t know what to do from there. Clicking on them only takes my energy to play again.

  43. Has anyone noticed why some people can earn stars quicker than others, My friend and I both play and for a star in level 7 they need 1.9 million for the first star and I need 1.2 million for the same star. any ideas

  44. I am playing crime scene number three I have earned all stars in three of the nine scenes and ranked number 5 .Have earned 14 stars Next case says I need one more star to unlock but wont let me earn another star as all stars on unlocked crime scenes earned.How do I earn another star to unlock crime scene.I just keep playing the same scene over and over I have earned two gold and one silver crowns Need help to move on to next scene Thanks

  45. for verification – in all scenes do you have to have all stars in order to move forward to scene #3 along with reports for the Captain

  46. I have nearly finished case 2. I know I do need reports from 3 friends to get in case 3. How and where do I find those? I have only one partner I play with and I don’t want to pay.

  47. If I stay on a case to complete all levels to get gold crowns for police dog, when I go to next case will I lose all the stars I have accumalated?

    1. Hey Kathy –
      You have to spend the stars in the individual case, you can buy soda, chips or a burger with the extra stars.

  48. Sorry, but do you have any idea how can I speed analysis of bodies and other stuffs? It make me nervous when I must wait hours and hours…Thanks for the answer… :)

  49. I’ve noticed a very strange thing happening in criminal case: my brother and I are playing this game with different accounts, and after completing the additional investigation, the same scenes require different scores to get the stars, and I’m not talking about few hundred thousands, I am talking about huge difference, for example, the last star of the same scene took me more than 14 million points, while it took him just above 5 million!!!

    do you have any explanation?

    1. I also got this problem. I need to take more than 10 million to fill the 5 star for every scene on case 4, while here my friend only needs about 5 million. Any idea??

  50. I want to know the scoring of the Time bonus.

    I mean, for how many seconds, we will get how much points?
    Eg, if we have finished a case in 15 seconds, we get 260,000 points as time bonus. I want to know at what time this goes 0?

    I want to know the time bonus os “Timed levels’ for eg, if we finish 60 objects in 60 seconds and 20 seconds is remaingin, how much points do we get?

  51. I have finished the junkyard=etc. case and it says I”Ined your reports”
    I have asked friends but none of them play this game. (I don’t do a lot on F/B) why can’t I get to the next level?

    1. Hi Jeri, I had the same problem. type in Criminal Case on facebook and look up groups. You can request teammates on those forums to play criminal case with. They will send you requests or you send them requests and you build up teammates that way. :) I hope this helped. You can request me for a teammate under Maggie Schlabach. :)

  52. Funny I don’t see any Q&A about the dogs. What happens when you place the dog off duty, you don’t have to feed his as often? Also, I’ve noticed other breeds of dogs since I had acquired mine. Do the different breeds do different things? I would appreciate any info at all on the “dogs”.
    Thank you in advance for your assistance and advise.

    1. Yes, different dogs have differing levels of skills. Some will find energy, some will find XP points, some will find coins….when you choose a dog to adopt, their skills are listed. Once you have fed your dog to completion (the loyalty bar is totally filled), you will no longer have to feed that dog at all. There are more adoption points further in the game, however,they will require that you have completed ALL STARS in your previous crime scenes before you are able to open the adoption point.

  53. Why don’t I get rank 1 in cases when I get 8 golden crowns in 8 crime scenes. Earlier I needed only to get 5 golden crowns to rank 1 in a case. Now, I must get the whole 9 golden crowns to rank 1 and if they become just 8 , I rank 2

    1. Hi Juanita, You may use the coins you are earning to buy clothes, new faces, hairdos,accessories or even a police dog. You can find the icon for the clothes, hair, face, accessories at the bottom of your screen to the left. It looks like a doctors scrub uniform. Click on that to find many items you can buy. As for the police dogs, you can buy one after you after earned all gold stars on a certain amount of cases. To earn all gold stars, you must earn every star on a case, filling in every star on all the boards in every single case. But, on the bright side, by doing this, you also get to earn stuff like orange juice in exchange for one star, chips in exchange for two stars, or a hamburger in exchange for three stars.

  54. I am stuck on examine panties. No matter where I start the arrows, it does not follow a correct order. Can someone help. Thanks

    1. Hi Ricky, when examining anything that uses the arrows, you must be willing and able to follow the arrows to their final destination. This may begin for example; in the upper right, then you click on the box the arrow is pointing to in succession until it reaches it’s end. For example: you begin by clicking on a box in the upper left corner-the next arrow then pops up pointing down-so click on the box it points to and then click on the box THAT arrow points to…etc, etc, etc. The examination requires you to be able to follow the arrows until the arrows lead you to either DNA, or some other substance. I hope this helped.

  55. How do you complete the Practice Makes Perfect trophy award? I am at level 28 and case #8 yet it says I only have 9 hours completed. I am confused as to how to accomplish and gain these trophies, even though the trophies mean nothing at all.Thanks

    1. Hi BLJ, you earn trophies as you play the game. This trophy merely means that you can beat a scene with no hesitation or need for clues from teammate. As you play and advance, you will earn more of these trophies. There is no way to hurry them, except by being vigilante, observant and doing your very best. As each trophy is earned, a little message will appear on top right of screen, showing you title of trophy and how many of that trophy you have earned and have yet to earn. Good luck and I hope this helped. :)

  56. in case 2 it says if you want to get to case 3 you have to have 3 friends ” write a report”. (I don’t know what the means) or use 10 cash. I don’t have 10 cash and none of my friends play the game. is there any way of getting past that??

    1. Hi Sarah, do you have teammates? If so, just click on them to reqeust reports. The same as when you request energy from teammates. You should have your threee reqports soon after…maybe in a day or less. The game will send your teammates a request to help you with your reports. They just click on it and it gets sent to your game. :) I hope this helped.

  57. Case #21, examine shredded paper, it will not allow me to restore the broken item. Two pieces will not click together with the rest.

  58. When I play criminal case on facebook, it freezes when I try to share free energy with other teammates, or when I try to click on add teammate and when I try to send card to teammate after we did a case together. PLease fix this bug. It is also happening to my husband and my daughter. And it does not matter if I am on google chrome, internet explorer or firefox. :(

    1. the easiest is get all the stars in both the first crime scenes and second crimes scenes, I was confused at this too at first..

  59. Heyy, I want to ask. Is there any other way to get the reports? My friends get really angry when I send the the requests :/

  60. When i start playing a scene on first screen it shows the bonus level of hints of my friends. how this level increased?

  61. I like this post, enjoyed this one regards for posting. He removes the greatest ornament of friendship, who takes away from it respect. by Cicero. eedaccdkkdff

  62. I cannot get through case two even though I paid $10.00 for the documents/reports. Friends are not helping. Can you please let me through??? I really enjoy the game! Thank you.

  63. what to do with the cards what are their purpose and how do you pass how cards do you need . I just need some explanation and use of the cards

  64. I don’t have friends that can send me a report to go to level 3. Does that mean I cannot continue to play? I don’t want to pay or buy cash…can there be a way
    Thank you regards Vincenzo

  65. Hi there,
    I have a question. I completed three scenes from Case 1 (all starts gained), and I see some scenes that are unlocked so I assume there are more scenes to do from this case. While working on Case 1, the yellow arrow prompted me to click on Case 2 so I started working on this new case. How can I go back finish those scenes unlocked from Case since it doesn’t let me or prompt me to do anything? Does it make sense?

  66. I cannot move into my case for some reason. The screen won’t let me go to the airport region. I am on case 56. Any idea why this would be?

  67. I’m trying to advance from 2-3, and have gold crowns and 3 stars accumulated. I’ve done the additional investigation as well, but it won’t let me advance. Why is this?

  68. I completed level ten and gained all the 45 stars. I was saving three in order to move forward but when i gained it, the game froze and took my star so now i am stuck with only two stars and no way to gain another one. Is this game over now for me???? Very very annoying! Please help.


  69. I am wondering about the scores of my friends, most have scores in the 900,000 and several have scores over a million. Even though I can complete the bonus scene and find all the objects in time, I still don’t have over a million nor am I nr 1. Is there a certain tactic to get these high scores?


  71. Where can I get a complete set of rules and instructions on how to play the game and have a real understanding of what needs to be done after completion of each scene. This would be very helpful to players that really like the game. Energy should be awarded after successfully finding all the clues before time expires.

  72. Do I get anything by earning Gold, Silver, or Bronze crowns in a case? Do the trophies earn you anything other than recognition?

  73. I have played almost everyday since October of 2014, 6 months now. I have over a million in coins saved up, and always save my energy up. Question: What do I do with all these coins? I have all the accessories/apparel I’ve wanted, and notice that the new ones are far and few between, and hardly offered. I am on level 125, having learned this by myself, and no cheat engines are used. Why can’t the coins be traded in for juice, etc.????? I’ll never use them all. I never buy extra help with the boosters, such a waste of coins.
    Question 2: Where do I find a Walkthrough after Case 50???? Can’t seem to find one thru Google. I’m on Case 51, and like using Walkthroughs. Now, no help whatsoever.
    Question 3: What happens after you reach case 232? Do they start all over again, or do you have other Cases with new storylines/cases?
