The X-Files: Deep State App Reviews

Good game just some bugs

The game crashes a lot. It doesn't bother me that much but if it would you don't get this game. Other than that the game is great.


When will season 2 be out?

Fun game that pays proper tribute to its source material

I am an avid X-Files fan. This game is a fun take on popular hidden picture games. The dialogue is funny and very much in the same vein as the original X-Files tv show. If you’re an X-Files fan you will enjoy this game. I do however recommend turning the speech off as the voices are all emulated using the silly computer voices and I find it annoying.

Great Game

Great game for people with patience. Most of the people crying in the reviews want instant wins and gratification to feel validated anyways. People expect games to NOT try to make money, when that’s literally the point of the development! I’m keeping this game as long as it’s open, being an x files diehard. Great work and great game, definitely recommending this game to friends!

A must have! But...

Pro. I love this game, prob on my top 3 games list, one of the most challenging with out being to hard lovable games ever, you fall in love with the stories and characters, the puzzles are very much fun and you can’t stop playing intel you get to the next case, graphics are amazing! Cons. Not sure if it’s the app or my device but the crashes are horrible, I’ve been able to look past them but I will be in the middle of completing a puzzle and then it crashes and I have to close and re open it and that is very annoying. Sorry for such a long review.

Great game. Synthesized voices are painful

The voices sound completely robotic and don’t even change between characters. Good stories and game dynamics.

Started out great, until..

I was really liking it at first. But then it got to a point where you could only continue the investigation by earning stars, and to earn said stars you had to solve a hidden object puzzle in 45 seconds, not only finding the objects, but the clues to what you have to find are scrambled words. So it’s just totally impossible to be able to first figure out the word of what you’re supposed to be looking for, then actually locate the item, and do that 12 times in 45 seconds. Frustrating experience, deleted the app.

The good reviews must be fake

Only played 5 minutes but I’d seen enough. All the parts that are read are in a bad computer generated voice worse than Siri. You can customize your character but there are only 4 choices and they’re all douches. This game is awful.

Great game but....

Fun game. It would be nice if energy regenerated a little quicker but all in all it’s not that bad. I really like the gameplay itself and the story but the wait for Season 2 has been insanely long so far. There is nothing else for me to play in the game anymore.

When is season 2 coming?

Been waiting for a whole week or two when is season two coming? Fix issue

For the classic

I love the storyline and the art of this game. However, I have played it for a long while and still can’t see any character from the TV. Milder, Scully, Skinner... where are they???!! The just show up in preview and promotion picture??

Many try...

There are many imitators but they fall short. The condescending attitude isn't required if you ask me.

Season 2 still waiting to be written?

When will Season 2 be done? About ready to delete it since it has been a very long wait.


Make us wait 16 hours for a database search or pay you money? You have a lot of nerve! The purchases in this game are ridiculous! Response: You think you're clever? I have over one million cash and max each stage in one go. Enjoy working hard.


While this game is good for passing time when you’re bored, I found it pretty frustrating that I have to have stars just to move on to the next case. Also, it’s annoying when I’m asked to share with friends and buy this particular bundle for $5 every single time I start the game. I get that it’s a free game and they make their money from micro-transactions but I’ve made it nearly to the end of season 1 without the help of micro-transactions so it would be nice if the game would allow ppl to opt out of the push to buy boosters. If I want to buy them I would go to the store to do so. Update: Now I’m unable to move on to the last case in Season 1. It let me start last night but when I went back this morning the one scene I unlocked was gone then when I went back again it sent me back to Ex Machina and wouldn’t allow me to investigate the next case. What the heck is going on?


This game is really good, but beware! When it crashes midway of gameplay, you may or may not have your progress saved. With the new and past updates, I’ve lost progress a few times, including stars earned and energy when replaying to regain stars. I even sometimes pay for the energy, and it gets frustrating when the game crashes and the energy I didn’t get to use fully isn’t added back to my total. Other than that, a great game. Will continue to play, but probably won’t spend any more money on refilling energy because I don’t want to risk losing it all due to crashes in the middle of play. Thank you guys for a great game!!

Fantastic game! New glitch.

While I love the game, I’ve been unable to play it today because as soon as I open the app, the “update is ready” screen pops up, stopping me from continuing. When I click the update button, it takes me to the app page in the app store, where I’m told i’ve already downloaded the update (five hours ago), and my only option is to open the app. And as I’ve already said, if I open the app, it tells me I have to update. I’m stuck in that loop.


The game won’t update and I can’t play the game!


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??
