The X-Files: Deep State App Reviews

0 add


I’m wondering when season 2 will be up. I just finished season one and I can’t wait for the second season. Does anyone know when it’ll be released?

Why so hard

I am on the last one and waited for you to release it. Why did you make it so difficult to finish the game. You all are crazy if I spend money because at this point I would quit the game before I do that.


I can’t play that It just crashed and going out of game

Great Game

Love the game but when does the next season come out

Season 2

Been waiting since the beginning of April for season 2, kinda pointless to have it on my phone when I can’t play


I like playing the game but when you get all the objects you show get all the points. How does that happen? Sometimes it makes no sense what bonus you can pick to help you out plus the fact that now you only get 10points back and not 20 is very frustrating. I purchased a pack but did not receive it. It sure would be handy when playing the game.

Shorter time to find items

Since the update, only 30 seconds is allotted to find all the items on some tasks. This is way too short! Uninstalling.


While I’m loving this game, I don’t think FORCING people to play Pro to unlock certain story elements is a good choice. All that makes me want to do is uninstall the game and never return. You need to stop that crap! Edit: are you kidding me!! Agents should remember to use boosters. How about NOPE!!!!! That’s not OK at all! Uninstalling. Not playing anymore. Getting tired with this crap! I shouldn’t HAVE to resort to using cheats to win a level. Thanks but NO THANKS! Uninstalling permanently! If I could delete my account I would! I’m done!!!! Edit 2: quit telling me to stay with you. Some missions can’t be done unless you spend money. Stuck on one right now that I haven’t been able to beat for weeks. Uninstalling this cash grab crap!!!!!!!!! No matter how fast I do the mission I never get enough points to complete it!! So YEAH YOU NEED TO SPEND MONEY!!!! STOP with the useless crap. Still TERRIBLE AS CAN BE! Horrible game!

Made me have an anxiety attack

If i could have put zero stars i would. I wish you guys would put a warning that there was going to be a monster pop up . Totally not okay. Made me have an anxiety attack, that could really be unsafe for some people, you guys should really change something, put an option to see it or not or something! Ridiculous!


Очень нравится игра, только один НО - постоянно вылетает, почти каждые пять минут падает игра на айфоне 6.

The Truth is here

X-Files game is the best game out here. It is so close to the series and just the right difficulty levels. Amazing!!!! I can’t wait until I reach the next case!!!!

Waiting and waiting for a new investigation!!

Waiting and waiting for a new investigation!! When will this happen? I love the game so far, but having to wait for this update isn’t fun at all. I’ve done all the cases and season two isn’t even updated yet. Been a fan of the X-Files since I was little and this isn’t helping a fan. What gives?!!

Great game

Love this game, the finding items challenges works your memory, great job

Fun game...when it works.

I love the x-files. I love this game. It’s fun, and doesn’t feel like it’s been thrown together to “cash-grab”. If you like hidden object titles, this is a good one. BUT, it has some severe issues. It’s easy to play without spending money, but spending money isn’t the problem. At the moment, the game is glitchy and needs a few changes to the UI. For example; during an autopsy, I was asked for a ladle twice. There was only one and so I was forced to sit there while the (in-game) money counter ticked down. Did I mention there’s no way to restart or exit a mission, dialogue, or autopsy in game? I checked. I had to close the entire app, just to restart one autopsy mission. That’s not all, either. I had enough stars to begin a dialogue mission. I tapped “talk to ____”. The game then cut back to the opening loading screen, and took me to the main menu. When I got back to the mission select screen, my star was gone, the dialogue mission wasn’t done, and I had to burn more energy to get another star. I’m sure there’s more bugs out there, but those are bad enough. This game has promise, and I’ve yet to hit a paywall. I don’t intend to stop playing (yet) because it is fun, but some game features need fixing. Badly.

Great Game!!

I LOVE this game! It’s basically a spinoff to the show (which I watched, and loved). Some people complain about “not having enough energy” or “having to spend money”, but I’m perfectly fine with the way this game was made, its goals/objectives, and how you have to spend energy to collect stars and progress through the game. I finished the game and didn’t spend a penny. You don’t need to pay money to complete this, but you do need patience. So here’s my advice to anyone who’s considering getting this game: Be patient. It’s a really good game (especially for fans of the show)! So download it, play it, be patient, and don’t spend any money. That’s how you finish the game.


I love the xfiles so it automatically gets five stars. However, I don’t know what’s going on with the game. I haven’t been able to get on for a week, yet somehow my energy hasn’t replenished? That’s quite annoying.

Love it but.....

Hey all, it's a very fun game with some cool twists with the game play but every time I try and open the game it requires an update and sometimes it lets me update and other times it has no option to update. When there is no update option at the App Store I can't get past the update screen in the game. So it's very disappointing and I hope the game makers fix that bug soon, and I'm exchanging emails with them and they are trying to figure it out. .......Update........4/3/18 Having trouble downloading the latest update again, it might be the wifi connection or it might be on the developer end. If it's on their end, I'm sure it will be fixed, hopefully soon. ........Update........4/20/18 Now the game doesn't let me connect to the internet so it won't let me download the last case for season 1, I haven't contacted the developers about it yet.

Eh, can’t really review: not enough game to play

This game is ok, I guess. I was a big fan of the show back in the day so I was thrilled an app was finally coming out. However, there are not enough chapters to give an accurate review! It’s been weeks since a new chapter has been released, which is kind of annoying considering the game is already tricky to play as it is, coinciding with others reviews. If you’re going to keep the game as is, then release a huge number of chapters already prepared and then release a chapter periodically. Don’t hint at getting excited about playing a game that’s bare bones at best.

Fun game but...

Don’t spend money. I’ve finished season 1 without spending a penny. Also... this is going to get deleted if you don’t add content soon.


Crashes soon after launching

Love app but it keeps shutting off

App is great and fun when it doesn't crash please fix this issue!!

Has potential

Such an excellent game, however I have to agree with the prior review. The dialogue tends to be a bit on the generic side, and I’m still not terribly fond of the micro transactions being mandatory in order to progress in the game. I still can’t quite grasp the concept of paying actual money to acquire fictional currency/items.

Incredible game!

I keep reading reviews that claim this game is a "cash grab" or that you're forced to pay to play. I've played this game through from beginning to end, I've finished every level, and I haven't spend a single penny doing so. It gets difficult and sometimes you've got to wait for your energy to be restored, but challenges keep games from being boring. I got through this game crazy fast and I could've finished in a day if I didn't have challenging levels that drained my energy so that I needed to wait an hour for it to refill. Yes, this game is mainly a hidden object game. The difference between this and other phone games (we have to remember this IS just a phone game) is that you make decisions that alter the gameplay. You get several choices (believer, skeptic, etc - more that we probably haven't discovered yet considering this game has only been out for a couple months. I mean, come on. People are expecting too much). You even get to choose your appearance. The couple weeks it took me to finish this game (I don't have much free time), I played every chance I got. When I struggled to finish a level, I would get frustrated, but it's what kept me coming back. I think this game is fantastic. Since I've finished it, I've been searching for a similar game. The only one that comes remotely close is NCIS, and it just wasn't as good so I stopped playing. I can't wait for more levels.

The game

The game one of the best of the best mystery games I played even mobile games but one problem. On the seventh case it won’t let me play it. I don’t use Facebook and the timer doesn’t even start when I have internet. Plus I’ve tried the no internet button and it still doesn’t work can you please fix this problem? Okay so now a few days later it’s making me do the 6th case and I can’t because I’ve done all of them and they’re classified. Thanks, the truth is out there. Plus can you please fix these problems soon. And sorry for that person who was yelling at you in that review. People these days am I right?!?

Great game, awful Skinner box


Very Good

The game is more than a search game! It has a great story and the scenes aren’t too easy or too hard. Season 1 was great can’t wait for season 2!!

Pretty good..?

The game is pretty good, but what frustrates me is that it keeps randomly crashing! The sound glitched and then 5 seconds later it crashes. I have to restart the app. The worst part is when it crashes on me while I'm searching a room, I have 1 more item to go and it crashes. The 20 energy used gets wasted down the drain and I don't even get to get the final item for the star.

I hate Facebook

Stop trying to force me to join #*%!! Facebook ur demeaning the XFiles franchise.

Fun, but could be better

The conversations are a little too much. I’m more interested in the challenges. Once I made it to a certain level the game quit having investigations. I contacted them about it. It took 2 weeks to get a response and they said a fix is being done right away. That was over a week ago and I still cannot play.

A reflection of our times

I do enjoy the story and artwork but the whole game is so obviously made to bleed money from its players. It’s a shame because I’m happy to pay for a great game but I don’t like feeling cheated and deliberately made frustrated so that I have to pay to progress. When exploitive games like this are successful in making money, I fear it decreases the chances of great games being made that don’t prey on players like mosquitoes. Especially, if in-app purchases are more lucrative than paying one price up front for a complete game. I promise to never spend a penny on this game so long as I feel so swindled. I hope this is taken constructively, because as long as players feel cheated, the game will be less lucrative.

Ok gameplay that crashes with diet racism

I was looking for a brain teaser game and I like X Files. I knew the characters and dialogue would be flat when creating my character. There's not much options for black skin or features. First episode was cool and then you interrogate a black woman who says "she's big boned" cusses you out and says, I quote... "Why do you keep saying I ain't no good at nuthin?!" Yep, prepare for that and more in this game. Hope they heavily improve the second one because I'm an X Files fan. Disappointed

Fine but...

This game is ok. It keeps me busy for a few minutes without being too time consuming (especially now that you lose energy even when “winning”). My biggest complaint is that the game seems to be stuck mid-case. I’ve exhausted all my options on available hidden object games (which are now all classified) and have been waiting for about a week for the next assignment to open up, to no avail. App is updated and everything. Not sure if this is a glitch or developers have rolled out the current version before finishing this level??


I'm being prompted to update but there is no update in the AppStore? I can't continue playing after this.

Too difficult and boring

It’s mostly a “hidden object” game. The playing experience is absolutely dismal on a phone. It’s very difficult to find tiny objects on a cluttered screen, especially when all of them look murky. You can zoom in, but that still doesn’t help a whole lot. Many screens have time limits that are really tough to meet even in the early stages. All in all, this game is an exercise in futility and frustration. Plus so far, Scully and Mulder don’t even appear in it. They are mentioned is all. You play as some random agent. BO-RING! The investigation story is kind of fun, but it’s so hard to get through the hidden objects that it literally had me in tears of frustration. A game should be fun, not upsetting to play. So I’m deleting it with resentment.

Restore purchases don’t work

Update 5: all I want is a refund. I’ve asked for one via iTunes six days ago and nothing yet. Their Customer Support just sent me a reply telling me I have to ask for a refund from iTunes. I literally told them I did that in the last email in the first sentence! They do not read my emails and this is part of the reason why I’ve been jostling with them for a month and a half. I wish they would stop wasting my time. Also, it took them SIX DAYS to reply to a simple email notification from me AFTER the developer promised timely responses. Update 4: The developer explained that they would no longer accidentally ignore my messages on Friday but I have received another automated threat that this ticket will be closed today and it’s Tuesday. The customer service has been lousy and I’ve requested a full refund from the App Store. Update 3: It’s been almost a month since I lost my purchase to this game. I’ve contacted their Customer Support (Creative Mobile) to credit it back or reimburse me. They are now threatening to close the ticket because they say they haven’t heard from me but I have a whole thread of replies and receipts that THEY have not replied to. At this point I just want my money back and delete the game. Update 2: I did as the developer asked and let them know about my review and my username. That was 6 days ago and never heard back from them. Update: There was a bug fix for the progress lost but they have not reimbursed me for a paywall. It’s been 7 days since I sent them a receipt and they have not credited or reimbursed me since! It’s been hard to advance thru the game with the number of bugs it has. Lost progress and now unable to unlock the next case even though I had already started it hours ago! Update: Contacted customer service because I wasn’t able to restore purchases after closing the app and it’s been 7 days and not a peep.

Not just a puzzle game

I love that you get to create a character that makes choices that end up impacting the game. The storyline and mini games really take it to another level as well. There's easy ways to get well off into the game without spending money. If you do end up buying something it's almost always relatively low cost. Right now my only issue is that I don't have any current assignments showing. I'm 18% into case 6: the water gate and nothing is showing so I can't go any further in the game unfortunately.

Fun game and interesting stories!

I saw a lot of negative reviews complaining about the slow progress of the upcoming new season with which I sympathize, and about the difficulty of game with which I disagree. There are a lot of ways to solve the problems without paying money for it. Some people just didn’t find it out and they want a dumbed down version of the game. In any case, I think the game so far has done a good job. I am looking forward to the next season...


I’m still waiting for the update to season two. It’s been over a week. How do I pay for items but can’t play the game??? This would be an amazing game if not for it not being ready

Says there’s an update (there isn’t)...

This was semi-fun the first few days I played it, and then constant problems. Crashed repeatedly, then every time I try to open the game today, it tells me there’s an update. It takes me to the App Store for an update, but nothing new there. I tried to reload the game, and get the same annoying response. Very disappointing. I’m deleting, and looking for a reliable and fun game instead of this sad excuse... Update: Thanks for the eventual reply, Developer. I deleted this game and moved on to a Big Fish game which is much more interesting, fun and reliable. Good luck to you.

Doesn’t work on iPhone X

I have contacted the designer about issues I’m having with this game. On the iPhone X, during the crime scene portions of the game, you cannot zoom in making it very difficult to play. My wife has an iPhone 7 and it works perfectly. The designer hasn’t made any effort whatsoever to correct this issue. iPhone X users stay away until they update this!

Way to long of a wait for a new case.

I really enjoyed playing this game. I would play against my friends and family to see what decisions we made. However I have been waiting over 3 weeks for the next case to open. Over it.

Next season

Really enjoyed the game. It’s easy but still interesting. I do have one question though. When are we getting new episodes?

Cash grab

Constant crashing and quickly moves to a mode of paying to continue to play. Frustrating.

Micro transaction cash grab

This game starts out easy and fun, albeit rather shallow character dialogue. The game gets progressively more difficult which is geared to make you spend money. You need to investigate crime scenes by finding objects on the scene in order to earn stars. These investigations increase with difficulty the more you do them and eventually becomes impossible without the use of power ups and hints, which you can use only once over a period of hours, or you can pay to get more power ups and hints. The investigations used “energy” which depletes by 20 for every investigation and only recharges over a period of hours, or, you can buy items from the store that increase your energy. You use the stars to progress in the story. At first, progressing through tasks cost one star, which means you completed one crime scene investigation. Eventually, it costs more stars to progress, this is where the crime scene investigations become totally frustrating as they become impossible without paying for power ups. Then, in order to progress in the story, you have to waste hard earned stars to “getting to know” a character which is full of shallow dialogue and a ploy to deplete your stars. I love the show, but this “game” is an embarrassment to the franchise. This is just a cash grab with a shell of a game built around it a la Zynga style. This game is going straight to deletion.

Great, but then bad update

I loved this game, and then it updated and you only get half energy if you complete the puzzle. What a bummer. I know you guys need to make money, but that’s a user hostile move. At least let us get more life by watching ads. Tons of fun, but now it takes forever to play unless you constantly pay money.


This game constantly crashes.


Had to delete. It started as fun with interesting storyline but I’m waiting too long for the next season and I’ve just had 3 updates over the past 2 days but they were just for offers for in game purchases, not a new season.

One of My Favorite Mobile Games

I absolutely love this game. The X-Files theme makes it super intriguing and I love how you get to choose how to handle the end of the case (moral decisions often found in Telltale Games). There are a few things I’ll say about it that you should know ahead of time. Some of the challenges are absolutely impossible to do unless you already know where everything is OR you use a booster. You only get boosters through chests, waiting for them to refresh (I believe every 24 hours), or buying them. You’ll need to step away from the game and let it refresh if you don’t want to spend money to beat the level. Also, I’ve found that I personally haven’t enjoyed the last few cases as much as the first but I think it depends on the person. Overall, it’s a great game that will challenge you but also keep you interested as you try to solve the mystery. If you don’t like hidden object games, this is NOT the game for you.

Good game

In the latest update they changed it too if you win a challenge you only get 10 energy back. Before you would be awarded the full 20. Not a fan of this change and I play the game a whole lot less because of it.


The newest update will probably make me stop playing the game. I usually sit on my phone for at least an hour continuously playing until I run out of energy because I keep failing levels. Now the new update makes you lose energy EVERY TIME you play ONE level no matter if you beat it or not. I literally played for 4 minutes before I couldn’t play anymore because I was out of energy...and I am in no way “buying” energy, even with my fake money in the game. Please put this back to how it originally was. Also don’t like that the game forces us to update in order to play... I hate updating things right away, and this is why.
