Ghost Town 2017

Ghost Town in Text mode

Ghost Town is unlocked through normal game play when a player reaches level 15. 

Players can 'pay to play' Ghost Town from level 14 onwards, where they can choose to pay with crystals (which will need to be bought with real money) to unlock the Picture early, rather than waiting until they reach level 15 and unlock it for free through normal game play. The opening levels for Ghost Town, previously levels 10 and 12 respectively, were changed with the Family Mystery Update (v1.31.3100).

The picture received a make-over as part of the Halloween's Horror Update.

From the Diary:

"I was impressed when I restored the next photograph. It was a picture of an eerie ghost town, full of mysteries and riddles. The photo itself seemed to tremble when I was inside it. It was a feeling that I just can't quite put into words."
