The X-Files: Deep State App Reviews

Great game but....

The game is amazing don’t get me wrong but every time I try to load it or play it, it freezes and shuts off at specific moments. I want to be able to enjoy the game with out it freezing in me. I honestly already tired closing the app and opening it up again then I tried erasing it and downloading it again but it still shut off. I want the best for the game but I cannot enjoy it when it shuts off constantly.

Great game but the voices

I love this game I did all the levels about four five or six months ago and I loved it but now with those robotic voices its harder to play. It would be so much better with just silence and the music during the cutscenes.

Do not play!! App steals money!

Certainly don’t try any in game purchases! I spent $30 and was never given the product I paid for, and “support” refused to just give me the product or refund my money! If you happen to make a purchase while their server is “down for maintenance” you lose everything!!! They don’t even communicate that the server is down! Avoid this company (Creative Media); takes money and does not deliver product!!

Love! Waiting for more!

I loved this game, nice hints to the series. Waiting on season two episode two! Trying to be patient! If you are a fan you will like this. Its fun, relaxing and challenging. Characters get more and more intriguing. End choices are tough and you see the effects from them!

Crash and burn

I like playing but it keeps crashing every time I finish a round and doesn’t count the stars that are needed to move on. Then you’re asked every time you do something if you want to buy a golden guess. NO. It would be nice to have a “don’t show again” option.

Narration awful

Why the one, monotone computer voice to narrate the whole thing? No bueno.

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. ........Update........8/17/18 Games been running much better but there seems to be a bug with the game saying that a have 62/60 stars with a couple of the cases in season 1 also I tend to play the game off line and if I click on the hint button or the boost buttons during game play the screen turns grey and becomes unresponsive, I’m sure the developers will fix the bugs soon.

Gameplay issue

I love the game (even though I’m not great at it) and I really want to rate 5 stars, however there is an issue I’m having with the game. Every so often when I start an action or tap an item in a scene, the screen will turn grey as if the game has frozen. The only way to fix this that I know of is to restart the app; when I do this, I don’t lose stars but I do lose energy. The issue happens every so often and completely disrupts the gameplay experience. I’ll definitely change my rating if it is fixed.

I see what you guys did!

In the last update you made sure that when you passed a find the objects level, you get only half the energy back. Frustrating...

Just some suggestions

I’ve been playing this game since it came out in the beginning. I find it enjoyable for its plot and the general alien-mystery-crime-solvingness of the X-Files franchise. However, as it’s been updated, there was a sort of drastic change to my avatar when “male agents received a more rugged appearance”. I appreciate the option to make changes in the body-types of the avatars, but I was hoping both the previous and the new would be available. I like how my guy looked before. Maybe we could bring that back? Anyway, pettiness aside, I really enjoy the game and I think it’s a good way to the pass the time and also take the edge off of your craving for mystery. Thanks for the consideration.

Frequent crashing

The Case 7 update crashes often and sometimes loses your progress. This should have been cleaned up before the release. The game is fun to play when it works properly. It would be nice if the updates would include more than one case at a time.


It’s a fun game but it never stays connected to Facebook so every time I log in I need to reconnect to my account. It freezes up regularly. Kind of disappointing.

Robotic voice acting

I just downloaded the game and played the prologue. It isn’t that bad so far (because I haven’t played much of it yet) but one thing I have to say is, what is up with the voice acting? It’s literally a robot just reading what’s typed as the script. I mean I understand if you couldn’t afford a voice actor but it took me a minute to realize my character wasn’t talking it was the male agent (Gale? I forgot his name already) because the female robotic voice is used for every single character no matter their gender. Maybe I’m being unfair though because it was just the prologue and I haven’t explored the game at all yet. Maybe the robotic voice goes away once you dive into the actual gameplay without tutorial or it’s a feature you can control. I don’t know but I hope to hear some human voice acting added into it even if it’s not the best.

What the heck?!

I’ve been waiting months for the next case, and was ecstatic to find out that there was an update with a new case. Updated it this morning, only to be told “There’s a new update, you must go to the App Store to download it before you can play!” I’m aware there’s an update, I just downloaded it! But now apparently I’m not allowed to play. Am very close to uninstalling, which upsets me because I’m such an X-Files fan. Hope that there is some way to resolve this before I decide.


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.


Since the release of season 2 the game freezes if you fail a mission. You have to restart the app to try it over. In addition to that there are DOZENS of spelling and grammar mistakes in the dialogue, so many that I began to wonder if making this game is someone’s hobby rather than a professional company creating it. For something that took so long to be released it feels cheap and hastily put together. Then to top it off I finished the case only to find out there’s more waiting for the next one.

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.

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.


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.

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.
