Okay this latest mini update: first there are supposed to be HOS s that have rooms that are mirrored (I will make an assumption it's just the same room but like you were looking a mirror), one the is silhouettes ( like looking at the room thru a curtain and all you see is the silhouette of each item? Or silhouette of entire picture with no color gradient?) And last night ( just the light level of the scene dropped like you were seeing it at night.?).


If you have the recent update, the 3 new modes should appear randomly.

The castle challenge has not started for Android users. The icon to access it is next to the private room icon.

The mini event for Android users started June 21 and has ended today.

Tonight I found what appeared to an update but nothing happened. No strange HOS s, no quests in the social section. And I'm tired. Almost caught up.

NEW UPDATE available for Midnight Castle (Android) - June 20, 2016

First time to play like this and won't do it again. First, I might have enjoyed the game if there were instructions on how to do things. Easy to find object didn't take as much time as trying to get another screen open for searching.
Another gripe to this game and others I have purchased. An easy way to exit is not easy to find. When I try out a game before purchase, I won't buy it if I must search for an exit.
I didn't know this was a buying game. I don't understand those and hope to heck I'm not charged for something I clicked on.

Midnight Castle is a free-to-play game. You do not have to buy anything, if you do not want to.

Midnight Castle is one of the best HOS games I have found. The clues of what you need to do are there just not always as expected and some once you pass a point such as the initial instructions I Haverford a way back to. I am a jump feet first and the ask questions. I had to down load it to a different device and read them. Also going thru the different threads here will give lots of information and a good place to ask questions of those who have already gone thru what you possibly don't understand.

c0co_nuts is one those who can help. Also, let us know if you are a PC user, or IOS or Android. The updates are loaded at different times and while it is the same game the different platforms (I hate to say) can't friend each other.
I am Reba Runestone and I play on a Kindle which is an andriod.

Give MC a chance it will grow on you even when there is st times a lot of bitching going on.

Oh, the game is free, but if you want to get ahead faster or your stuck you can pay for coins or gems but the program will always ask if you want to buy. I go thru amazon and you can set it so you have to put in your password each time you buy. So not only do you have to select an amount you have to enter your password.

As for getting out -I just swipe my screen to the right and the home icon appears. Or if you are in a HOS you don't want to be, same thing only use arrow or use the stop at the top right. Either was it will ask if you want to leave HOS .

Enjoy gaming
Reba

Random thoughts and questions about MC:

Favorite quote of the game (so far): "I'm too busy for a time suck right now. Come back later!" (Wish I could say this at work!!)

Favorite characters (so far): The Automoton! He ALWAYS makes me smile. (What a nerd, like me!)
Grumpy: (in the Pirate Room) I click on him every day, just to release my angst!)
Henry: He is always SO polite and always gives me flowers.

@Davegnew1 - I agree about the Night Vision view. I don't care for it. I wish it was optional. Some time I might want to go for that Achievement, but mostly for now, it's not much fun and will make upcoming challenges difficult. And "I GOT A HIGH SCORE ON NIGHT VISION" said NO ONE, EVER!

On a related note, what happens when you skip the Night Vision view five times? Does the number ever reset? Anyone?

RE: The Spring Rooms or any rooms, I think they reset about every five-ten minutes. You can go in and click on butterflies WAY more often than twice a day. I wish someone had told me that about 33 levels ago! Which leads me to ask:

Do the Magic Shards count as morphing objects? There is a challenge coming up where you have to collect 600 morphing objects. Does anything beside the flowers count?

And next to last. The FLOWER OF SUFFERING was certainly aptly named. On the several levels before this, it seemed like I was sent there for almost every quest, sub quest and task. I was SO TIRED of getting hung up there time after time after time. Two characters would want the same thing at the same time! I am on level 34 now. Someone PLEASE TELL ME that I won't have to keep doing the SAME THING over and over again. The pace has been wonderful at level 34. Please reassure me that it will stay that way!

I am grateful that I play on a PC. It seems we get the updates first and the game play is smooth. I am player 79534. Thank you to my Friends, happy gaming and wishing an update to level 71 for all of you!

Nanasue

The count for the achievement does not reset.

Magic shards are not morphing objects. Currently, the flowers are the only morphing objects.

One of the most common zoom zones is the Gnome Road Sign, where when you click on it, you have to provide a coupla items to get something else. In other words, you zoom in on it, but it's not a Hidden Object Scene. Does that help?


Yes, thank you.

Being able to see the whole screen with all the imaginary is part of the games allure. Having a small window with a blank screen, that is tedious to maneuver is boring and detracts from the game. Unless I need an object from a night mode objects room,, I just close
the Night Mode session and move on. My personal opinion is remove NM.


So sorry you don't like the new "modes" I think it adds so much to the game, not so boring this way.


I have to agree that I'm not fond of the new mirror or shadow forms. I don't find the night vision so bad. In fact sometimes it helps me focus! It was interesting at first but now I'm getting tired of them and wish they would switch back to the regular mode.

I am getting really tired of the unrelated postings.

I am level 71 went thru entire available HOS s and didn't see one of the new modes. I even added the Destiny key characters back in as well as competed three daily quests. Where are they? I looked at the social window and still no quests there.

I play android. Help!

I replied to one of your posts further up the page.
The mini event has ended and the castle challenge has not started yet for Android users. The icons to access the mini event and the castle challenge are on the slide out bar, not in the social window. There should be 5 icons on the slide out bar:
Social--Mini Event--Tournament--Private Room--Castle Challenge

If you are not seeing the new icons and the new modes, then you do not have the latest update. You can contact customer support if you need assistance.

What device are you playing on. Android and iPad do not have the castle challenges yet. However, if you’re PC, I think you should send a ticket to customer support (found at the bottom of this page) with maybe a Dr. Felix report.

I did install around 23rd but on the slide bar which I use at least twice a day never saw the mini event. On the 22 there was no update available. And of course as you said mini event is over and castle for android has not yet started. But still no newer update am I seeing. I go thru Amazon to get my updates. I will try customer service but don't hold out much hope as from prior posts it seems like they are probably overwhelmed by pc and IOS players. Reba

Unfortunately no, you can't play the same game and/or cross platforms.

I hope no one else did this but I mistakenly thought the "days" were chronological ones and was using all my diamonds to hurry up and finish! Thought it was just a ploy by BF to get you to buy more!
