Homescapes Positive Reviews
Developers please read ✨thanks✨(ps its long but important!)So i love this game and i downloaded it again but then it has like ever 5-6 levels there is the one where you do the thing where you have to move the bars and i like that new update but i still have the same problem as when I downloaded it before, when i get on level 24 that level specially o have 10 moves and have to collect 40 yellow and 40 blue?? Like there is 0 ways to do it and I don’t have enough coins to get more moves and i am pretty sure you guys are making it like that so we have to buy stuff but i may be wrong but thats how it seems, but yeah how are you meant to collect 80 blocks when you only have 10 moves???? Im gonna offload the game for now but yeah and i think there should be more options like you can put accessories you get to choose from and idk if its just me but having to play a level just to get a star to do the next day is kinda annoying to me but yeah ima offload the app for know maybe if there is a update and you get more moves for that level that would be awesome but i don’t get it because for this one you have to collect 80 (added together) but you only have 10 moves but in other levels you have to get like 3 donuts and you have likes 20 moves or more (just as a example) so idk why this one has 10 moves and you have to collect 👉🏽80👈🏽 80 is hard to get with only 10 moves. Like i said before amazing game could use some fixing but for now I’m going to offload it..Version: 4.4.4
Love! But needs some adjustments!I absolutely love this game! It’s fun, challenging, amazing story lines, and cool ideas for decorating! I have been reading through the reviews and see a common complaint.... some levels are way too hard to earn so very little. I have stopped playing this and garden scapes out of frustration from time to time...yet I always go back! I spent 4 or 5 days on the same level on Homescapes and well over a week now on Gardenscapes level and it’s very discouraging. I have heard of people getting charged for additional things they don’t even purchase in games before..so I avoid making purchases at all costs.(***not in this specific game**) So it’s extremely discouraging when I spend so much time and get no where. That’s legit my only complaint. It’s not bad enough where I want to delete the games-because if you keep at it, EVENTUALLY you will beat it! Then it seems the next few levels are super easy then you hit one of the hard ones that takes days to beat. BUT the idea of the game, I think, is Genius! I DO love the little challenges and add on competitions you incorporate into the games, like the rockstar thing with Austin and all that! I wish we had more options for boosters, although I will say from time to time you add in the spin wheel u get to spin daily for boosters !
Overall it’s a great game - just challenging from time to time! Great to play during quarantine and needing an escape from reality for a little🤷♀️.Version: 4.4.4
STAY FAR AWAY, this game cheatsAnd even if you have a screenshot proving the glitch that cheated you, they’ll disregard it and screw you out of play and money. Background: Been playing this game (and spending $$$ on it) for years, but when a level (7214) had a glitch — cheating me out of extra-play coins, taking away bonus tools — I took a screenshot that CLEARLY shows their mistake and sent it to them, and they’re totally fine with screwing me over. (For players familiar with the game: all the suitcases for hats had been opened, all the hats on the board were gone (collected, eradicated, whatever), but it said I needed to destroy ONE more hat. There was NO hat visible, but I tried anyway— exploded numerous planes, bombs and missiles that would have clearly taken care of it. No dice. That was my last move, so I spent 900 coins to try again, even though no hat was left to get. Exploded as many planes, bombs, etc., but no dice. I realized it was a glitch, I wasn’t going to preserve my bonus tools and it had just sucked up my money. You cannot capture a hat that doesn’t exist and is NOT going to materialize, since there were no more suitcases to open.) I went through the multi-step process of contacting support, sent a screenshot proving the glitch, waited more than a day for a response and just got a notification “well, another hat might have materialized, too bad for you.” Clearly the agent doesn’t know how the game is played, and it just CHEATED ME out of play and money..Version: 5.4.3
LOVE THIS GAME!!!!!!I love this game so much I can’t even put it I to words. It’s fun and light hearted for the most part and I enjoy most of the levels and it’s like designing my own house without the actually expensive designing of a house. But also I have some suggestions I would like to make. I think it would be helpful if we had a button in the games (like the hammer, sledge hammer and glove) that reshuffled our pieces because sometimes you waste a whole level because all of the moves were goofy little three piece matches at the top or something and you get no where with that. So if there was a little shuffle button, having already set “restrictions” in place, that it would be very beneficial to not only beating levels but also building value to your game. I can’t think of any other games that I have that include this special kind of feature and I think it would be a really cool addition to this already pretty amazing game. Or a back up one move button because since the new update of only having to hit the special moves once I often accidentally tap one or do a move I didn’t want and if there was like a little undo or back up one move that that would benefit the levels. I’ll probably come up with something more to say but this is all I have to say for now. Again I really love this game, very smart design and I love the characters. Thank you for reading this (if you do lol).Version: 5.3.3
Recommend! But some suggestionsThis game is really amazing. It has nice graphics, story line and NO ADS!!! I had to think before I wrote this and realized that fact. The match 3 stuff itself can get really hard though. In the match 3 there are regular levels and then there are the purple hard levels and the red super hard levels. I think there should be something when you have attempted a level a lot of times there is a way the game gives you a certain amount of skips or something like that. Especially since the whole moving forward in the game relies on the completion of levels. Maybe this could become something you buy with real money? I’m not saying I would buy it because my mom never lets me buy stuff for games, but other people would. I have noticed this thing that the game does, especially when there are events. They give unlimited lives again and again for rewards but the problem is that this plays automatically and forces you to keep playing the game until the time runs out. I think that many people including me would appreciate it if there was this sort of bank of something that keeps the rewards that have a certain time limit, so you can use them when you want. Thanks for reading my review and suggestions. I’m just a kid but these suggestions apply to everyone so pls take into consideration.☺️😁-meeee.Version: 4.6.2
Great game! But I want to say… (devs please read this)(P.S this is a bit long 😅)I love this game! But first off I want to say why I gave this game 4 stars instead of 5. my first problem with the game is the ads for this game, the ads for this game is the whole reason I downloaded it. I’m not gonna say the ads are lying because they do come every 20 levels (I think) but anyway back to the ads when people watch an add for an game that’s what they wanna play, they don’t want to play something else they didn’t know about and only play what they downloaded it for barely at all! Another thing about this is about the events in this game… see I have absolutely no problems with the actual events but most of the events have like only 2 OR 1 DAY TO FINISH IT!!!! To me that is un fair some of them have an decent time limit like 20 days but the others are WAY TO SHORT… kids also have school u know, and even if they didn’t it’s not like they could spend there whole day trying to finish an event because it’s leaving in an few hours! The last problem I have is the lives… YOU ONLY GET 5 LIVES, THEN HOW WOULD YOU COMPLETE THE REALLY HARD LEVELS… because when you get to the hard levels in the first place you probably don’t even have all five lives! And this complaint is only for when you don’t have unlimited lives. That’s all I can do for now because I don’t have anymore room. I hope this is helpful to new users and devs I hope that you can fix these things!.Version: 4.7.2
Addictive but could use some workThis game is addictive as all get out and I love it! However, I think the game would been benefit from having less difficult levels, or decreasing the difficulty in the very hard and hard levels. It’s possible to beat these levels without any power ups and coins, but that’s only if you’ve been dealt a good puzzle. I know a few people that loved the game but stopped playing because of the difficulty of some levels. I have even myself taken long breaks from the game for this reason. Also, sometimes just to call someone, it can take up to 2 or 3 stars just to do this. I believe the game should be a little more rewarding with lives, stars and power ups if just calling someone takes up to three stars(three games). And if this isn’t possible, there should be better rewards for completing levels, helping teammates, and/or just in general (hand out power ups). I think the game would be extremely successful if it were a little easier or if you could change which difficulty you would like to play as. I think the developers are more focused on making the game like the ads we see and less like keeping and improving what is already good about the game. Hopefully some of these issues are dealt with so mine and many other players I know experiences while playing the game are improved. All that said, it’s a great game that gets you sucked in, but just needs a few tweaks here and there..Version: 4.8.6
Love this game but…I read some reviews and I have the same complaint as many others… I understand that the game needs to get harder as you go, but I lose interest when it takes days (literally) to beat a level. I’m going to call the rainbow ball, bombs, paper airplanes, etc. “cheats” here. Even if I use all of my cheats AND use coins to play on, it’s unbeatable. Most of the time it is pure luck that you beat these levels. Just when you are ready to pack it in and quit, you get lucky. Also, there are levels that start out with only a few pieces on the board, so using cheats doesn’t even help. There has to be a way to make this game challenging without forcing players to quit playing. I have lost many teammates, who quit, because they are stuck and frustrated. My team is down from 28 players to 8 now. Team “America” is looking for players! I hope something changes to keep us all interested. Maybe a new start after a certain level? An end to the game without losing your decorations and cheats, then onto a sequel? A new cheat that clears the board, or something to skip a level? Give us more moves for the harder levels? The game plays the level for you after adding a new booster? There has to be something. I don’t know, but something needs to change. Eventually no one will continue to play, when they get stuck and can’t move on. Why create a game that forces players to quit? Just my point of view. Thank you for reading!.Version: 5.1.4
Maybe add voice to stories?Hey so I love this game and have been playing for a while (level 4,939) but I have to admit I’ve stopped reading the dialog. I skim through but have no idea what’s going on or what the purpose is of the room I’m redoing. (Usually I’m unwinding after the day and watching tv at the same time and am just too tired or confused about the plot to read.) I really just like playing match game and getting seasonal decor for the front lawn. It would be awesome if you guys added a text-to-voice feature. It could be as basic as a Siri robot voice or as elaborate as voice actors. Either way, I’d love to have it just read out the text so I can know what’s going on without having to read 20 speech bubbles. Also, these rooms are getting kind of absurd too. I think the lake house is bigger than the main/original mansion. Like they have this whole aquatic research lab, a massive, completely vacant bakery (can we get some fake patrons in here??), an art studio/writing study, and now I don’t even know what the current room is with the stained glass. Why don’t we design the other characters’ homes instead of building this nonsensical overly-extravagant monstrosity? We could do Lao’s house, Raúl’s, etc. I haven’t unlocked the mountain estate but I bet it’s the same..Version: 5.0.4
Why is there no bathroom?Overall a great and interesting game to play. Fun and challenging. Love: the extra rooms, added updates, extra “decor” you can earn by playing the seasonal games, graphics, some of the storylines, the cat, easy game within the game that earns stars/lives, garden is truly beautiful, no (direct) ads
Confused by: no bathroom, the parents have no bedrooms, some colour and design choices
Can do better: some storylines esp Katherine who is supposed to be the romantic interest but always looks on the verge of crying, the “ friends” are made to seem inclusive but can come off as tokenism, father is just plain annoying. Game forces you to play constantly by withholding some of the extra rooms. No ads which is a plus but then indirectly pushes you to purchase by not allowing you to proceed. (It is possible to play without purchasing, you just may be stuck on a level until game decides to let you go on, the level will be impossible to win until you’ve failed enough times and suddenly will become super easy) which brings me to next point which is game is neither skill based or luck but seem driven by trying to get you to purchase stuff through it. Some levels are so easy and then impossible until the same level becomes impossibly easy after you’ve either bought some bonus or tried enough times that it gives up on you purchasing. I get it, that’s the point of these things but still..Version: 4.6.2
Has PotentialHomescapes is sort of a game I just stumbled on but as I got to know the storyline better, I became more interested.
I’ve been playing this game for about one or two years, and at first I kind of didn’t seem much enthusiastic about the game, and it’s only because the way you get stars by matching objects and such didn’t seem like much fun, then, they added a new update where you could play mini games, and then, ( in my opinion) the game had more purpose to it, more to do. First off, to me, I didn’t exactly like how you had extra to do in levels like, for example, bring the doughnuts down, collect cherries, break chains, and match items to get carpet. Matching (once again, to me) isn’t very much fun especially when you have to do extras, and have a specific amount of moves to do it. Second, simple things such as collecting stars to “start a new day” isn’t worth going through a level, and having the risk of losing a life just to “start a new day”.
Finally, the furniture needs to have a wider variety of colors, textures, types, etc. added to them. Overall, the game has potential and I really do enjoy it but I just feel, ( in my opinion) the game is getting more attention, more downloads, and getting older, it needs to have more options and explanations, (especially to new players) but if you want a simple, free, relaxing game I would definitely suggest it. Thank you for time! Sincerely, FeedUpWithBugs..Version: 4.6.2
Hello! Developers Please ReadDear Developers, I love home scapes, I love decorating my house, I enjoy beating puzzle. I’m happy there’s no ads, So you might be wondering why I only gave you 4 stars. This is not a cheap game. At the beginning, yeah, I could play without spending a penny. But now, I have to pay to Get rewards during the season, Or spend my coins on extra lives. I was super Exited to get the new pet, Pepper, So I finished a ton of levels, So I went to collect my prizes, And realized I couldn’t even get Pepper without paying. I was heart broken, And did not open Homescapes for a day. I still love Homescapes, So I had opened my app up, and I was ready to re design my house. I was stumped on this one level, I spent almost all my coins, used all my life’s, and I was stuck. I finally finish this
“ easy “ level, and for some reason don’t get a star. And don’t just tell me you’ll tell the devs about a problem that never gets fixed. I’ve now been stuck on this one level for almost a week. With no way to get boosters by completing a level, if I’m stuck on one. So I am stuck on a level, with no way to complete, hence no way to continue the game. Everyday I check on that level, but everyday I fail. This game is no longer fun.
Please fix your game to make it cheap, and make it playable. And don’t tell me every level is beatable, or to contact the support team. I hope you think about this problem.Version: 5.5.6
Cash grabI downloaded this game as a joke thinking I’d delete it after the first couple levels....... then promptly played all the way up to lvl 50 in only one day. I’m perfectly obsessed with the game. The story is interesting, the rewards are gratifying, and rather than putting an ad wall in the players face every level, the game company sneak ads of their other games into the game play (that part specifically is very cool to me). All the levels before level 50 weren’t too challenging, but lvl 50 is in a whole other ball park. It is basically impossible without getting lucky. It’s not a strategy issue, it’s purposefully crippling the player by limiting the number of moves they have to a ridiculous level, and giving them a tiny 6x6 space to play the level. It’s very obvious that level 50 is made to be difficult to force players to spend out if pocket money on the boosters to progress the game but I’ll be taking no part in it. There’s no point in spending 2-15 dollars to solve this problem now, only to meet it later on down the road. It’s a cycle with this game. They draw you in with fun levels and interesting story and new sections of the mansion to decorate, and then trap you with basically a pay wall and force you to spend more money. This problem can only be fixed with real world cash and I am unwilling to pay it, but if you are then be my guest because the game is- at the very least- fun to play..Version: 4.7.2
Rewards aren’t sufficientI have played many, and I mean MANY, games such as this one in my lifetime. I find them to be fun and even addicting. Although the concept of the game is great, and I’ve only been playing for a short while, something needs to be improved with the coin/lives system. Getting around 50 coins per mini-game, which can take multiple lives to complete, isn’t sufficient enough. In order to buy a life, 900 coins, you would have to play around 18 rounds just to get enough coins for ONE life. I do not pay money on games, never have never will, but it’s so frustrating that you may have one move left and instead of paying real cash, not in game coins, you have to wait for a life to replenish just to try and fail at the level again. Each round can take 10+ lives to complete, and it takes quite awhile for the lives to replenish. There should be some kind of reward opportunity other than completing a day, especially because you need to play the mini-games to get stars, in order to complete tasks, to complete the day. That’s a lot of tasks to do with not a lot of lives/coin rewards!!! If there were events where you can play other mini-games to gain rewards/treasures I think it would be more efficient. I also think 28 minutes is a long time to wait for one single life. I don’t want to give up on this game with not a lot of time put into it already, but if there is no improvement, I might have to..Version: 1.0.0
Kind of disappointing..Hey there, first let me say that the game is beautifully designed and has so much potential. When I first downloaded this game I was glued to my phone and obsessed immediately, and then I hit level 24. I’ve watched videos of people completing these levels in the past and they had over 20 moves for the same level. And now it’s only 10?? I understand and was fully expecting that once you get to a certain point in the game levels will get pretty difficult since I know this game has been around for awhile, but level 24?!?! I haven’t even made it out of the first room!! You have to play a perfect game to be able to beat the level and it took me several heart refills as I kept failing. You basically have no choice but to either take your time on this level (which could last several days) or to buy a pack of coins to continue playing. As someone who generally does spend on in-app purchases, it’s frustrating when you feel as if you are basically forced to do so, and in turn, makes me want to delete the app. I really don’t want to do this as I said this game is really entertaining and a ton is fun, but I refuse to spend a small fortune to be able to play a game on my phone. I would love to be able to continue playing, and you have PLENTY of levels to keep people playing without forcing them into purchases. Please consider making some changes..Version: 4.7.2
Developers, PLEASE read this.This game is fun, engaging, and challenging! Not to mention it doesn’t have any ad’s (THANK YOU!!). However, sometimes the levels can get TOO challenging. I’m currently on level 60 and it’s near impossible. I’ve been on it for a couple of days now and I just can’t get past it. They only give you about 12 moves to get so much stuff, and it’s not even worth it. I’m not sure if this is a marketing strategy, but it’s a crappy one. I swear the creators don’t even try to do the levels themselves, because if they did they would be able to see that there is no way to get past the level without paying for anything. There should be some sort of “skip” level or something similar so that you aren’t stuck on the same level for weeks on end. Especially since the game won’t go on if you don’t complete these levels. I always end up deleting the game because of this. I mean isn’t the whole point to decorate? Speaking of decorating, there should be more options. To be honest, I don’t ever really like the choices I have for decorating and I’m always just settling for something I don’t like. I just wish there was more variety, and i’m sure some other people feel the same. So overall, the game can be fun, but Please fix these “impossible” levels. This problem makes me very irritated, and i’ve seen almost all the reviews complaining about this same problem..Version: 4.6.2
Awesome game! But...I love this game. It’s so relaxing and entertaining. It’s nice to have challenging levels. However, once you get further into the game, you can’t play as much because you start to go through lives like a hot knife through butter, which is why I can only give this app four stars. The stars in the game feel less and less possible to gain because each one takes over a day to gain sometimes. The challenge is fun, but perhaps there should be different difficulty levels for people who are interested in different aspects of the game? Not just an “easy mode” in which some levels are a bit easier, but a normal and hard mode as well. Or perhaps an occasional “watch ad to get one more move but if you want five more moves you have to pay” because it is very aggravating to feel as if you either have to have a ton of power ups or be able to purchase the five extra moves every time. Especially when, out of those five extra moves, you only needed to use one of the moves. I enjoyed the game a lot, but I want to be able to play without feeling like purchasing coins is a requirement to move forward. Overall, a good game- I love the aesthetic of the furniture, the plot is interesting and somewhat realistic, and Captain Flint is a very nice touch to the game. Just a few things that could be edited to make it more playable..Version: 4.5.4
Cute and fun! 👌🏻 But here’s the thing.Homescapes is a good app. Not amazing but it’s good. It’s cute, it’s colorful and you feel accomplished when you fix the tv or replace the chair. The characters are nice and honestly kind of funny. 😄 and I’m glad you guys even included pets in the game! I like how everything is tried to kept decorated around the house. I like Homescapes much better than gradenscapes just because the colors and the graphics are better int my opinion. At least the game is a little better. The problem is you have to get stars from playing one game only. And even on a hard level you still get 1 star. It’s annoying how fast your stars run out. What’s even more annoying, it’s that sometimes you have to give one of your stars just to open a box, that you’ve already given a star for box to get to the house! What I’m saying is give more chances to get stars. Like as a prize. Instead of just money, give us a little money and a star! Or have different games besides just the one game to match the colors. Another thing is that it takes so long to complete one floor or one area of the house because of how limited of the stars you have. So I suppose you should just focus on the star problem because it will fix this one of taking so long! 😆 Please take this into consideration. The game would be much more entertaining and exciting if I didn’t give up so much on the game. Thank you 🐘🐘🐘.Version: 2.0.0
Love the game, but…I love this game, but the star system is truly my biggest gripe. For every level we win we get one star and if we beat those special levels we get three, but when we go to do a task they take away more than one for each task. Back in the early levels of the game the star system was more even as far as give and take, and as I’ve played on and reached high levels I noticed that it’s grossly uneven the higher you get and the more levels you win. You still get one star for every level you win and three for ever special level, but now it takes four stars just to place one row of chairs and another four stars for the second row and so forth and so on. Why does it take so many stars to do only half a task now? I get that the levels are more advanced but why isn’t the star giving system? Why can’t we get one star for every normal level, two for every hard, three for every super hard and special level? It would make it more even at least a little bit imo. I’m tired of having to depend on getting the three hours of infinite lives just to hear enough levels to be able to do a days worth of tasks for a room. It would be nice to have some breathing room on that front of this game. Anyway, great game just hope it’s something the developers think about changing in a future update..Version: 5.7.3
HiI really like this game but like I’ve seen a lot a people say this game has a lot of very hard levels that gives you like 10 lives which is nothing to try and complete levels where you have to collect like 40 Cherry’s while there’s double chains blocking a lot of pieces and it’s very frustrating sometimes when I spend several days trying to complete a level that gives me a bad amount of lives and unlike some other designing games I’ve played another thing is that it’s not like you could watch a couple of adds and skip a hard level but in this game I just have to wait to get lives because the limit is only five lives and I’ve wanted to delete this many times out of frustration but I don’t because I’m just hoping that there will be an update that makes the limit for life’s higher and maybe adds would help people who also are frustrated about hard levels because whenever I’m on a hard level it’s like the game wants us to pay for lives or coins. The last issue I have is also that you have to pay 900 coins to continue a level I think it should. be lowered to around 400 because a lot of times on the hard levels I use up all my coins completing the level. Overall if these issues get fixed it would be a five star but until then it’s a four and it’s a pretty fun game.Version: 5.1.4
Levels and gamesLove the game, but needs some improvements. For starters some of the levels are to tough for the amount of moves you get. So to beat them you have to buy tokens. When a super hard level only gives you 8 moves to clear 16 cherry’s and 15 rings it’s unrealistic to beat in 8 moves.
The Knights race is a joke! I was in 2nd place by three levels from third place, 4th place was 4 levels and 5th was 7 levels behind and first was a level ahead. I beat my level in 5 moves with double rainbow cubes. Took me less than a minute, but when it went to the main screen it said “hurry you just got past” and I was 2 levels behind in last place. That means the other so called players behind me beat 5, 6, and 7 levels in less than a minute. I don’t think so. Then the hard level I was two moves from completing and I ran out of moves and I bought tokens. I used a double airplane to win the level and the airplanes never went to the right spots and I couldn’t win, so I used 1200 tokens to get more moves. Again I had no moves to make. I sadly bought more tokens and was able to use the hammer twice to get my win. When it went to the main screen the knights race was over and I was 9 levels behind. What a joke. Please fix! It is a fun game, but at time beyond frustrating..Version: 4.8.6
Annoying StorylinesI'm giving this game 3/5 stars for a few reasons. I thoroughly enjoy the puzzle aspect itself, more so than competing puzzle games. The animations are smoother, the power ups are well thought out and exciting to use, and the puzzles are fun. I'm docking points though, because the storylines are infuriating to deal with. What roped me in to downloading this game was the home decor aspect. As a huge fan of interior design, this seemed like the perfect game for me. I got to play fun levels, but also simultaneously get to decorate a home. However, after spending months on this game, and completing 240 levels, I've only just now unlocked the 3rd room. If you can even call it that. It goes living room, kitchen, and then garden? Why!? There are TONS of rooms in this house, and after TWO HUNDRED AND FOURTY levels, I'm decorating a garden while so much of the house is untouched. Don't even get me started on the baking storyline. 6 stars just to bake the cake base. Another 3 to bake the house cake. Another 3 to frost it. Another 3 to put it together. Then 2 to drive it to the studio. Then 2 to celebrate the win. Then another 2 to open a present for winning... it doesn't stop! I didn't download the game to bake a cake. I downloaded it to furnish a house! Stop with that nonsense. It took WEEKS to get through that ridiculous storyline. I hope the developers listen to this criticism, because it's really really turning me off to an otherwise fantastic game..Version: 1.3.0
2 ConsI have had this game for 3 years now and I am enjoying it very much. But there is two problems My first problem is that you beat levels to get stars right? Well in the beginning you only need 1 star to do a task. Well as you get up higher you need more stars per task. So if I want to let’s say, put up a statue it would take 3 stars to do so; that means beat 3 levels. And that is something that I am not a fan of. There is one other con. In Homescapes, there is ALWAYS some sort of event going on, like the things where you get points per level, and rewards once you reach a certain point. Sound fun, right? Well once in a while it is fun, but when there is constantly a 30-day long event, and you just can’t get a break, it gets annoying. If you are reading this, and you work on the Homescapes team, please make a change because I hate this and it is something that bugs me so much and I would love it if there was just 1 month where there was no event going on. That is why I stopped playing Matchingtown Mansion, and it might be why I delete Homescapes in the future. But other than that is is a super fun game, there are limited bugs and I enjoy the mini-games (separate from the events) I play it every day!.Version: 4.7.2
Very Fun; Very FrustratingOkay, so I started playing this game and love the concept— it’s fun, addicting, and keeps you wanting more. And THEN, once you’re hooked, the levels are so hard it will boggle your mind. Now, I love a challenge...but...this is stupid. Sometimes you get a half hour or so of unlimited lives, but mostly you’re stuck with 5. Each time you fail to complete a level, you lose a life and it takes (not 100% sure on this) at least 20 minutes, possibly 30, to get another one. You can ask your team for lives after an allotted amount of time, but you’re pretty much going to wait and wait. And boy have I!
I am not lying when I say I spent three days and 60+ lives to finish level 163. The worst part is that to makeover your mansion, you have to collect stars. One star per level completed...soooo...I haven’t been able to move forward on the game for that long in any capacity. I finally, FINALLY, beat level 163, beat a couple more...and then hit another one that is very nearly impossible. I only had two lives left from level 163. So I burnt those pretty quick and I’m uninstalling the game.
If your levels are going to be this hard, give us more power ups. Best Fiends, for instance, is really hard sometimes—but they also offer a lot of opportunities for infinite energy for X amount of time. I’m going back to that one! Boooo!.Version: 4.6.2
WHATS WITH THE CREEPY AD?!This is a decent and fun game... But the ads that I see for this game while I’m playing other games don’t make any sense at all: they are completely misleading and don’t have anything to do with the Actual gameplay. When I first downloaded this game it was because of an ad that I’d seen, and the demo allowed me to pick out which furniture, which wallpaper, etc. Then I downloaded Homescapes and played, even spent some money on it because I was having fun and wanted to keep progressing. Now all the ads I see for this game don't make sense. I see some where the main characters are trapped on an island and they are being attacked by a shark, some where they are stranded in the cold and freezing, and within the last couple days I saw two more that DONT MAKE SENSE! The guy has to pee and he’s running down the hall and things are breaking. Then the reason I wrote this review is because I was so confused and disturbed by the one I just saw: the guy has his hands and feet tied to bed posts and the room is on fire and he wants to escape. That seems macabre and violent; who tied him there... his parents? It’s creepy when you compare it to the actual innocent and child friendly gameplay. What in the world was that ad?! Why would you make that strange violent ad to promote this game? I’m disturbed... lol... it’s been months and months since I’ve seen an ad that depicts anything similar to the actual gameplay. :/.Version: 2.8.0
Character flawsI agree w/Luis905..”umm one big issue”. The levels are hard, but they want you to continuously spend money on coins etc.. to try to win or put in an ad about other versions of this game. It gets frustrating and you want to put the game down and never return. Let’s say you’re rewarded with an hour or more of free play, it ticks down from that minute instead of letting you go in and play on your own schedule and let it tick down. Some of us work for a living and may play during our lunch or break, if you activate the free time, it is ticking down and over when you are off work and can play. The creators want you to acquire other versions/themes of the game.. if they’re like this one.. no way I’d get them. Funny that in the garden today while sweeping the butler says how he like to keep the dust out of the carpets there and keeps a clean house ( same thing he says in the house.. you should change the text to match the scenes) the guitar is in the house, but it magically appeared for him to sit on a bench and play it while chastising me about how hard the game must be for me to play. when you lose each life, the look on characters face is like you’re a failure... this doesn’t encourage you to play, you want to avoid that look like the plague. At times it’s disheartening. I will still play, but you lose interest in the story line due to frustration of game levels.Version: 3.3.4
Love this game BUT changes need to be made!I love this game! I’ve played many games, but this one has become my favorite. Over time though, I am beginning to get frustrated! You only get about 50-80 coins a game after completing the level, but in order to get more chances to play it’s 900 coins for the first 5 extra moves and then goes up to 1200. I don’t even know what’s after that, because it’s just so much! Even with the rewards they grant, you only get 100 coins which is like nothing. You really have to spend money to play this game. I’ve tried to be patient and play the games out without spending money, but many levels you just can’t! I don’t mind spending the money here and there, but it’s so expensive, it doesn’t even make it worth it. You get 1000 coins for .99 and it takes 900 coins to get 5 extra turns. That adds up really quick! Plus it’s even more expensive if you want power ups! I’m not too sure how much more I can continue playing if they don’t make some changes. It’s beginning to add up with how many coins I’ve been buying just to beat rounds. On top of that I believe that there are also sometimes when the board isn’t applying the power ups correctly. It's almost like a glitch or something that’s not working. I’m really hoping they make some changes to this game! Such a shame that it seems they are more concerned about money, than people continuing to play..Version: 1.3.0
Terrible support teamThe game is decent. It’s fun and can be a little addicting. The story lines are cute as well. Some of the story items cost way too much compared other games and honestly nothing should cost more than 2 stars, let alone stuff that costs 6. That’s ridiculous and no other game does it.
Speaking of... so when you have to clear 6 game boards to complete a story line task, every one counts, and often you may use a booster for that last piece with your last move. Only on occasion, when the board is NOT MOVING, an airplane will go take out some random piece that has nothing to do with advancing the game. You lose a life, and they start to back you into a corner where you need to use coins. It’s cheating. I contacted Support and their response? Lol “The way the game works.....” sooooo, i understand how the game works, I’m close to level 3,000.... not what I stated the issue is. They never addressed the issue and simply kept saying that I don’t know how to play. They slid me a couple of boosters to “lightening my day”, whatever that is, and even said at that time “this wasn’t our fault but here are a couple of boosters to lightening you day”. Extremely frustrating that they didn’t even acknowledge a possible issue.... not even a “let us look into it”. Whatever.... I still play but I refuse to buy coins. I will maintain the free version and spend my money elsewhere. ✌🏼.Version: 3.2.0
Long time player.....I love this game, have been playing it for quite some time. It’s my “go to” favorite. I’m somewhere around level 1100 or close to it. Some levels are hard to the point that it gets ridiculous. Some of the hard levels are easy or perhaps it’s just luck to win them. I have spent days on a level and get frustrated and then dont play for a while...but i still really enjoy this game. You CAN win every level with out a power up. You DO NOT need to spend any money on this game, patience is a virtue (so they say). I have spent money and lately I haven’t. The one thing i do agree with most reviewers on is this... to buy a power up costs wayyy too much money for the amount of coins you receive for passing a level. To continue a game (at 900 coins) for a move or two costs a fortune considering you really don’t win much. To buy three hammers costs too much (1900 coins). I realize they do want you to spend money and i have but even when you spend, it doesn’t give you much in return. I mostly just wanted to let people know you don’t have to spend money to win this game...and yes, some of the tasks are eye rolling but....its still a fun game. Even if you don’t feel like playing, you can still receive a daily reward for logging on..Version: 2.9.3
Levels really hard..payout really lowI really like this game and Gardenscapes but it is getting very discouraging to play. The levels are so hard and the payout is so low. I’m deleted the game today because I don’t spend “real” money on games, especially when there isn’t a good return. The amount of coins that are needed to buy things like boosters and lives are crazy high. 900 coins for 5more moves on a level is crazy and then if you want to do it again, it’s 1200! When you only win between 50 and 100 coins ( on a really good round) it takes a really long time to recoup. They are very stingy with giving you boosters and chances to get more coins. I play other games that are very generous with coins and boosters which allows me to play and enjoy the game. Isn’t that what the game should be all about? Challenging levels are one thing, but when it takes so many lives to win a level it’s not fun anymore. I won 2 hours, played constantly for that time and only made it through 2 levels.
Also, when you win 2or 3 hours of free play, it should be put away so I can play when I want to. If I win 3lives on the wheel, it gets put away...I should be able to play an hour at a time when I want to play....I worked hard to win those hours and I should be able to play them. Love the game, but it’s too bad that the developers are really greedy and don’t want us to enjoy their games..Version: 3.3.0
Is anyone there?This will be the third review I have wrote and still nothing posted or any response given. Why offer someone to write about your game if you have no intention to post it? I’m sure this one will end up is the same spot as the others, the deleted/don’t care what you have to say trash. The point of every game is to be challenging, what’s the fun if it isn’t. This game however takes challenging to a whole other level! As I’ve said it other post, this is not a game of skill. It’s all based if the game allows the pieces to fall, the boosters to point in the direction needed to win. A blind monkey can play this game because it’s all luck, like a slot machine. Most levels, no matter if they are regular, hard, or super hard take 2-3 lives to beat. I will say, I have on very rare occasion beat a level on the first attempt. Currently I am on level 214 “super hard” I have attempted to beat this level no less than 25 times, maybe more! Challenging 🙄? Let’s change the game to mission impossible 🤣😭! I have spent real money on a package to help. It’s was useless and I went through it in a couple levels. Developers, can you tone it down a bit and let people actually get through the game like games are intended? I know that seems like a lot to ask, but at least consider it before you just delete my message. Thank you for your time and mine I wasted writing this 😂🤣!.Version: 3.4.0
Loyalty breeds spendingI’m all for supporting developers and I realize the time and expense that goes into creating a game. But when it’s seemingly impossible to get past levels for days at a time without purchasing power ups, it starts to feel like I’m spending way too much money. First, it’s way too hard to get past many of these levels given the power ups that you are able to create, and the game is not intuitive as many others are, to afford you “spontaneous” gifts that get you through a level. Second, given the time, effort, and often money it takes to get a point it is really “expensive“ to get any of the projects done. If you’re a player that is enjoying the game because of the creative side, then it’s almost pointless because you’ll never get the point and the frustration isn’t worth it. Third, the most successful games I believe are the ones that let you play the most and when you’re up against truly challenging level you’re willing to fork over the bucks To get past it. These are the games that I felt as if the developers showed me a good time and deserve the money I’m spending in power ups. Unfortunately this is not one of those games. I feel as if you’re just making it so hard That it’s not fun..Version: 1.1.0
On Level 1725So I’ve played this game for a long time. I can fairly say that it is a well-executed game with consistent updates and support. I like the creative side as well as the puzzle side it’s a nice balance. One thing everyone should know unequivocally before beginning, however, is that the developers hate the players. Hate may not even be a strong enough word for it. I could be wrong, maybe it’s impossible to fairly balance a puzzle game but to program it so much in the favor of you losing is... unsurprising considering how often it wants you to purchase things. Now, you don’t have ads in this game, which is nice, and the options to purchase don’t ensure victory (I mean at all), so in a sense the game is consistent and there’s some comfort in that. The reward system is pretty rough, it does sometimes feel like an endless attempt to wear you down. You will rage quit from time to time, or put it down for a couple months, but this is a casual game. Whereas other games make me feel as if they’ve earned my business, I find the challenge of this one is seeing how far I can go without spending any money, because it tries so hard. It’s my tiny moral victory. But hey, great time waster so if that’s what you’re going for, you’ll likely stay engaged and distracted from your reality and isn’t that what we all want anyways?.Version: 3.7.0
I love the game but bewareI am over level 2000 on the game. I love it but wish I could say I have enjoyed every second of it. I appreciate a challenge and I totally understand some levels will be frustrating and take a lot of time to finally beat. However I have noticed several times during a critical move to clear a level, the game piece will move in the opposite direction from where I swipe it, making an error that forces me to continue trying to beat that level. This has happened several times on multiple devices. I have also noticed when pieces are falling after clearing a large section of a level, sometimes pieces that are supposed to create power-ups when matched don’t create them, like 5 in a row to create a rainbow multiplier. I feel like the algorithm of the game does this purposefully to keep the player from advancing too quickly. And I can tell you this, a large percentage of “luck” is involved in passing hard levels. I’ve noticed that if I’m stuck on a level and don’t play for a long while when I come back to the game it clears much easier because of the game pieces given. Overall I like the game and enjoy the process but I don’t like these cheats. At all..Version: 5.0.4
Fun Game, Too HardI really have enjoyed playing this game. The graphics are great and I enjoy the little tasks I get to complete with stars. However, more than half of the levels are just too difficult to pass on your first or second try without using boosters or paying for additional moves. I’ve poured far too much money into a game that is an app on my phone. I feel guilty and sick each time I do it, as I know I shouldn’t, but I really do enjoy the game.
That being said, I truly do think the game developers have made many levels close to impossible to pass. At this point it’s not an issue of game strategy or attempts, but that winning or not winning just seems to come at chance. This game is a gamble, and if you get into it enough, you will begin to pay for the gambles. “Maybe I’ll win this time” “I just need one more move to pass this level” “I have to beat this to get the staircase installed.” I have no idea why I still play this game as it’s cost me so much and I’ve truly gotten so little benefits from my purchases. I’m writing this solely so others like me can read this before deciding to download. The game developers will not change the difficulty of the game, so I hope they don’t waste their time asking me to reach out to someone. They’re making a profit. At a game that’s too tempting not to..Version: 4.9.1
Well developed gameI do indeed enjoy playing this game. I play it normally thru out the day. It helps the time go by quickly. The only thing that bothers me is the hard and extra hard part of the game. I realize that it breaks up the monotony, but, I spend days sometimes trying to beat the level. But, it is good that the hard and extra hard are few and far between, so it’s not overwhelming, it’s a good change of pace. And, as others have said, rewards are few and far between as well. Especially with the hard levels, the rewards are just this: your normal level low coin reward is doubled and you are rewarded with one extra star. I know you have to make money in this venture, but, your doing it to the detriment of your customers. There is a reason we play games that say that they are free, it’s because a lot of us do not have the funds to use actual money to progress farther in the game faster then the other players that can afford to use their hard earned money. In conclusion, I think this game is well worth 5 stars, however, I did only give it 4 stars on account of the hard and very hard levels & the lack of well deserved rewards. I think there should be better rewards and it should be a little easier to get stars. Just my opinion for what it’s worth. But, great game!.Version: 1.3.0
I really like this game! But a couple of improvements could be usedI really like the idea of this game and the storyline is intriguing. The decor choices are also very pretty. But, I do have some ideas that would make the game better. First of all, I really like the levels where you can help Austin with his favorite game and I would like more of those levels. Second of all, I was just playing Level 24 on the game and you only have 10 MOVES to destroy boxes AND collect 11 lamps and 17 books. I had to spend most of my coins and now I can’t get extra moves. I would appreciate if the developers did one of three things:
1. Don’t make players pay for coins. I’m a kid and my parents don’t let me make in app purchases so I would be pleased if they did this.
2. Give the players extra moves. I’m not able to beat level 24 with only 10 moves but I think if I got more moves I would be able to beat it.
3. Give the players more free boosters. I’m predicting that if we got more boosters, eventually we would be able to beat tricky levels.
4. Give us less obstacles to clear on these difficult levels. I’m sure I would be able to beat the level in 10 moves if we had less obstacles to clear..Version: 4.8.6
Fun but frustratingSo I been playing for almost a year now and I’m on the 1000+ levels. It’s fun but it totally clickbait me on Instagram with the little games that I haven’t seen once after downloading. I’ve gotten so frustrated so many times I had to stop playing for a couple of days because the levels get so hard you need god to help you and not boosters. Sometimes the normal levels are harder than the hard ones. Not only that but you start by collecting 1 star per game to having to pass multiple levels for one task, which can take 3 stars per task when it used to be 1 Star per task. And I hate when you’re remodeling a room and at of nowhere something happens in another room you have to fix. Like, everything is supposed to be new, why are they making me waste my stars on a room I had already finished ? And 5 lives isn’t enough! Either give me more lives or make them take less than 30 minutes each to reload. Oh and lastly if you’re getting a gift for infinite time let us choose when we can use it. I shouldn’t have to waste it because I had work or class. Sometimes you can’t play for 2 hours at that very second. Your girl has a life too you know..Version: 3.6.0
???Why is the game not the game you show?...pick and item (correct or fail)?
Where is that game?.Version: 3.1.0
Good game that could be better..I really like this game, but some of the early levels are too hard and it can take way too long to build up stars. I also find it very frustrating how many stars you have to 'waste' on pointless tasks like opening a parcel. I love choosing furniture and doing up the house and think every task should be related to this..Version: 1.0.0
Really fun but...Please rethink the game. Really hard to get through some level. Not enough hammer or bonus stuff. Also you never give enough money for us to continue. It gets boring when you can do anything..Version: 1.0.0
Love itLove this game but we should get $$ easier, it gets a little hard sometimes... just wish you could get extra cash.Version: 1.0.0
Bait and switchI kept seeing the ad for this game and thought that looks like fun. Putting out fires and fixing the plumbing. That’s not the game I downloaded. This is a puzzle game. Which is puzzling to me. Why don’t they show this in the ads. And where is the game shown in the ads? Because that’s the one I want.Version: 2.6.0
FunI like it.Version: 1.0.0
SeraFirst off. You can't post a review unless you give it a three star review so highly doubt this will be posted but this is NOT the game advertised. Shame on you getting people to download this hooey. Make the game you advertised and there you will have a great game. Shame on you.Version: 2.6.0
