Addicting but has major flaws. I started out LOVING this game. I’d always play whenever I needed something to do to pass the time. However, once you get into the upper levels (1000+), they barely give you enough moves to beat it without using power ups or buying more moves making it a pay to play game. You’ll be stuck at the same level for 1+ week trying to beat it. I noticed that if you quit and don’t play for awhile, they’ll give you power ups when you return and make that same level instantly beatable. I understand they need to make some levels more difficult but basically being locked out of the game for 1+ week is ridiculous. Another thing I dislike are those super hard levels (with 300 gold reward) are virtually impossible to beat and we have no option of skipping it. When I get to a level like that, I always lose my streak with power ups. But that’s probably their intention. One last flaw I’d like to point out is that we win unlimited lives a lot but there’s no way of deciding when to use them (ie you can win 2 hours unlimited lives but have to stay playing for 2 hours or else you’ll waste it). There were so many times when I only had 15-20 minutes to kill and I would get 2 hours unlimited and have to let that go to waste.

Overall fun game but one part is pretty racist. i’ve been playing GardenScapes for over a year and have mostly enjoyed it. There are not many games I have played consistently for this long. Sometimes I get stuck on a level but that makes victory that much sweeter when I finally get past it. But there are some improvements that could be made: 1. The portrayal of Master Akira is racist. Yes I know you try to show admiration and respect for Asian cultures but the way Master Akira talks is grammatically ridiculous. Asian people don’t mix up their words that much. The object of the sentence before the rest of it is fine, but words are randomly placed throughout the sentence making it difficult to even understand what he’s saying. Please fix this! It’s not funny, it’s not culturally accurate, it’s just really annoying. 2. When there’s a challenge to get the most bombs/fireworks, give us unlimited fireworks for 30 minutes, not unlimited lives! You give us unlimited rainbow blasts for that particular challenge but don’t do the same for the fireworks challenge. 3. Austin’s magic hat bonuses max out at 1x1x1, while the dog’s treasure chests give you many more bonuses if you consecutively win. I don’t understand this discrepancy and wish you’d add more bonuses to the magic hat.

Not my favorite .(I say Home scapes is better ). Don’t get me wrong I like the game invite but every time it won’t give me the right moves to play or you know how it is and then the stuff cost way too much on the game way way too much . I like the game to staff and I can , you can do the Guardian and all that kind of stuff but the game itself is really boring it’s like kind of want to those games where you have to do something but it what are you do it until it want you I like the game to staff and I can you can do the Guardian and all that kind of stuff but the game itself is really boring it’s like kind of want to those games where you have to do something but it won’t let you and that gets on my nerves a lot that I’m not trying to put everything down on this game I’m just trying to say that I am only play it when I have to this is my writing I gave it to because it was really that good to me I’ll be with him I did I don’t wanna but you down or then I like all your things that I get that but for me the game is just not what I expected to get one I saw the ad I was like oh this is going to be fine but guess what it’s not how do you like my interview and didn’t feel you know all about Lala blah that about it is I really like game is yes it has some things in it that I wish I could change I just want to tell people who made this thing that I need some changes or some updates.

I'm deleting it. This is a cute game and addictive, unfortunately, it gets difficult too quickly and you need boosters to get thru the levels. You earn a few in game but otherwise you have to pay for them or pay for coins to get you extra time to finish the level. You also have to play levels to earn stars to make changes to the areas of the garden, which is fine except when you can't get past a level and some tasks take 2 or 3 stars to complete (ie 2 or 3 levels passed to earn those stars). Would be easy to spend a bunch of money on this game. I would rather pay $5, $10 or even $20 on a game and not have in-game purchases. I would continue to play this game but I'm only at level 65 and working on the 3rd area of the game and can't get past it. I had unlimited lives but out of boosters and had to have played that level at least 100 times. If it's this hard now, how much worse does it get? I'm not going to keep throwing money at this game - it reminds me of the carnival games where you try to win the big stuffed animal, but you have to keep buying tickets to play. By the time you are done and walk away with a dinky stuffed bear, you could have bought 20 of the big ones. So, if you are still reading, I am deleting the game to eliminate the frustration. I would recommend avoiding the frustration altogether...

Ridiculous!. I really like this game, and I don’t want to stop playing it, but it’s so ridiculous! I’ve been stuck on one level for two days, and it’s driving me crazy! I’ve seen other reviews of people who have been stuck on one level for over a week sometimes like come on that’s ridiculous. Some of the levels are so unforgiving, and unfair. How are you supposed to make your goal if the darn game barely gives you any matches? So you’re just stuck there wasting turns until you fail. You don’t get enough coins to really do anything. There’s so many dumb things to do that requires stars, which you also don’t get a lot of. This game honestly just wants to drain all your money. It doesn’t give you any other way to try and progress by being stingy on coins, stars, and power ups. Want to win this level better pay $5 for it just to get stumped on the next one and pay more, and more. I really liked this game, but I can’t, and won’t pay an arm and a leg to play a phone game. Also the fact that each life takes 30 min to fill up! How are you ever going to get anywhere like that! I also don’t understand the stupid safe mechanic? So I have coins that I earned, and can use, but I have to buy them from you!? That’s like if I had to buy my own money! It’s stupid, and unfair! I’m about to delete this game because it honestly makes me want to throw my phone with how dumb all of this is!

Mixed feelings about this game. On one hand, it’s wildly addictive. On the other, it’s overly frustrating to be stuck on a level that clearly shows the developers lacked some basic empathy/understanding of how the game works. I’m often stuck on levels that are not super hard, per their labeling. I have looked past the thanksgiving-riddled decor (mass genocide and stolen land? not something to celebrate) and the now Christmas-heavy theme, which is great for folks who celebrate Christmas. But I can’t look past the openly racist Asian-inspired area. Being Asian myself, I am so confused how this material made it past the quality check, let alone the initial copywriting phase. The story had to first be pitched and then approved by a manager of sorts. It is just bizarre. I skip most of it because it’s like a slap in the face every time I read it. It is most blatantly racist in the backwards, broken English they use for the Asian character, and the stereotypical “master” title is getting really old. (If they were going for the true stereotype, they could have at least consulted someone Asian and used the proper term “sensei” which would have made it less inaccurate, at least.) I know, it’s just a game, but someone should really be required to take some equity training. This is a very bad representation of Asian people and I’m disappointed it’s a large part of this game. If I were invested in this or advertising on this platform, I’d want to be more inclusive.

Please fix. Great game, been playing for a couple years and is awesome at burning up time. I literally have only one complaint. I don’t know if it’s a phone issue or something else but whenever I leave the app, not close it, to check something else and come back it’s always right where I was, either in the middle of a round or waiting somewhere in the garden to start the next round. However recently I have noticed that if I leave the app, not close it, I can open and use any app and come back to play where ever I left off except for when I open and use my camera. Once I’ve done that doesn’t matter if I’m in the middle of a round or not the app completely reloads upon coming back to it like opening it it for the first time. Like I said I don’t know if there is a way around this or if I’m just stuck with this issue or it’s an issue that o my I’m dealing with, however with how long this game has been on the market and it’s following it’s odd to see that it doesn’t have a refresh/resume option upon returning/re-opening the app, like a “ would you like to continue where you left off “ option like so many other apps on the market have. I don’t know what it takes to add this or if it’s even possible with this app but it’s an issue/nuisance, especially if you invest a couple dollars into getting power ups to get you through a level or have beaten enough levels in a row to build up a nice bundle of free power ups ie the chest or magic hat.

Great game, one irritating problem. Overall I love this game. HOWEVER, there is one issue that irritates me endlessly, and I’m writing this review hoping it gets resolved. In some levels in which the goal is to get the punch cups to drop to the bottom of the map, there are little nooks that allow for the rainbow blast power up to drop down into the nook in the space below the cup, so that you can’t use the rainbow blast because the only thing to switch it with is the cup. If this happens, there is no way to win the level!! The rainbow blast is blocking the cup, and no amount of blasting with bombs will move the rainbow blast out of the way. The ONLY way to win would be to use the little “hand” special to switch the places of the cup and the rainbow blast. So if you don’t have that, you basically waste an entire life and any other power ups you started the game with. Like is said, compared to the entirely of the game, this problem is small, but it is definitely a design flaw that causes me to just waste entire levels! It’s SO SO SO aggravating because it’s different than the level just being difficult- rather the level by design and chance is impossible. At the very least, provide a “surrender” option so that I don’t have to do random swipes for 10 moves knowing that the level has become unwinable.

Too hard or ?. I enjoy this game immensely. I really do. I have to agree with some of the other reviewers about the difficulty in some of the levels and how it can take a very long time to pass a level. However, I think it’s somewhat okay. I look forward to the challenge of trying something different the next time I get a chance to play that level. I do not pay anything for the extra stuff. I did it once and felt like a heel. That’s part of the challenge. The only thing that bugs me more than levels being a bit too challenging at times is having to add crap to areas. It sounds so nitpicky as I type this out, but here goes. So we finish the fountain in the garden and then change the basin to a statue that takes like 9 stars to finish? It really takes a long time to finish any area in the garden when we have to do that stuff. I’m all for the challenging levels, but how many stars it takes to do the changes is a bit much. How about giving us the choice of a decoration: maybe the butler really wants the peacock for the basin in he fountain and it costs 3 stars. You like the angel for the basin and it costs 2 stars, maybe the original basin costs 1 Star. Just an idea. I think it would be more fun to have a choice that way.

Transaction heavy. The previews for the game are misleading and imply that you will play more interesting pin puzzle games and see additional story plot points. However, mini game levels are rarely available and are not as interesting as the mini games in the preview. Also, huge problem is that the updates have removed fun elements of the game—-dog training game that offered powerups for each stage of completion, more free power-ups between levels, free lives have been removed from the spin wheel, quests to unlock interesting decorations are rare and have shorter durations than the golden ticket quests. Also, most new decorations are gaudy and uninteresting. There is no way to see old quests to try to get the good decorations. They also removed the in-game cash that let you apply different decorative styles to the treehouse, maze, and other areas. Most people on my peer teams buy the golden ticket everytime—-the game heavily promotes this $5 purchase mechanic over other ways of enjoying the game. And since the dog training, cat courtship, cake layer, and scarf making games for earning free powerups have been removed, the game becomes more of a slog to try to beat levels without any free powerups. Congrats to the developers for removing the most fun elements out of the game in favor of profit.

Game can quickly become a money pit. Only gets 2 stars because this game is deliberately designed to quickly become a money pit. Decorating the garden should be fun, but this game is designed to frustrate the hell out of any player unwilling to spend real cash to buy coins which are required for everything from Austin’s (lazy butler) chores to answering the stupid phone and feeding the dog. DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS GAME! If you purchase coins, they won’t go far because the stupid match puzzle crap you’re required to play and beat will consume your coins in no time. Each puzzle level is designed to require more moves than a player is given to eliminate obstacles to: find gnomes (there are always too many), get rid of acorns, collect specified items (fruit, water drops, etc). Each level increases in difficulty, but the rewards DO NOT increase, nor do the boosters, etc. needed to play the higher, more difficult levels. If you have a physical or learning disability, this game is literally impossible to play and advance in because the stupid puzzles are too difficult to manage. Pity the developers didn’t make this game more user friendly for individuals with physical or learning challenges by providing advancement options to complete other than the stupidly difficult and unrewarding puzzles. ☹️ DELETING GAME...won’t waste money on it and refuse to waste time on stupid online forums plowing thru drivel looking for shortcuts and hints.

Fun at first, impossible in advanced levels. If you’re just starting out, this is a fun game. The longer you play, the more apparent the money grab aspect of the game becomes. Advanced levels (I’m on level 3234) are frustrating and often times nearly impossible to beat. I’ve been stuck on some levels for weeks. At first I figured that the levels were totally randomized and I just wasn’t getting boards that i could beat. But the interesting thing is, if you are stuck and stop playing for a while, the game will generate a message saying to come back and try the level you’re stuck on and suddenly, the board will generate what you need in order for it to be passable. Obviously, then, it’s not totally random. And since all of the in game events are limited time, advanced players with difficult levels don’t have a chance to complete these events in time. I have made the mistake of paying actual money for items in this game, but I encourage others to avoid doing so. I’ve contacted the developers when my progress has mysteriously disappeared, or when game aspects (like the colored rockets) appear to have a glitch. Nothing is ever fixed, progress is never recovered, and their “compensation” for their mistakes does not involve returning the money you wasted on their broken game. Save yourself frustration and time and play Township, which is a much better game from these same developers.

The Nicest Game Ever. This is, seriously, the "nicest" game on the internet. Austin is like your super-supportive friend, who's so positive it's almost creepy, but you gotta love him, because he's just so nice. I started playing this game as part of an offer to earn gold in another game I play, and I've been a daily player ever since. The match-3 levels are pretty addictive and challenging, and they're always changing and adding new features, so it stays fresh and interesting. At the same time, you're fixing up the gardens and having adventures with Austin. All the neighbors you meet are fun characters, with interesting backstories. It's all gorgeously rendered, and totally bug-free. You can play offline. Fun little events happen pretty frequently. Best of all, there's practically ZERO ad-presence... you have the option of watching videos for coins from time to time, but ads are never shoved in your face. I think this game is designed to appeal to older adults-- hence, the 80's-supermarket-style music, but I really think anyone can have fun with it. I am seriously just impressed with the quality of it. The only things I'd potentially change about this one: faster recharge on lives, different music options, and more customization options for the garden decor. But it's serously pretty great as it is.

It’s silly but it’s fun. The puzzles themselves are good, they’re difficult sometimes but all of them are possible to beat without wasting any bonuses or spending your money. I’ve played it for a couple of years now on and off and without having paid a dime I got really far. I finally bought a small package of coins just because I enjoyed the game enough I wanted to support the creators. I figured I should leave a review, too. The plot is thin and just over all silly but... it’s meant to be. Really, you just don’t think about why you need to play a puzzle to earn a point to get the butler to answer the gate. You don’t think about why a helicopter is free to use for dropping off things and picking up trees. None of that matters, it’s just a silly thing the creators added in to make it fun to earn points from puzzles. He says cute things in between and I’m fond of him, despite the fact that he doesn’t like cats... not sure I could ever agree with you there, Austin, but I like the cat addition in their Homescapes game (even though he seems to have forgotten how much he disliked cats... or about the garden and dog too?) Like I said, you just don’t think about it too much. Thanks to the creators for a fun puzzle game, looking forward to more!

Help..... I have been playing this game for a while. I’m currently on level 968. It is a fun game that I feel is practical. It does have its challenges but it never gets to the point where I feel like a have to give up because I can’t beat a level or what not. And I love that they always have little mini promos. Which also come in handy if you feel stuck on a level. Like gaining power ups when you win games and the daily wheel and other things to get power ups and coins. Unfortunately I am having an issue with the renovation tickets. My ticket balance is 33. And when I beat a level, let’s say I win 10 tickets for the level I won, my balance will show that I only had 23 tickets and the ten tickets won are added to the balance keeping my ticket count at 33. I’ve even seen it give me a negative balance if I win more than 33 tickets on a level. I tried to write customer service but didn’t get a response. I have no update needed, so I’m not sure what to do. Now I don’t gain any tickets at all. The event just says “hurry up”. And I received a pop up on the game right before writing this about how you can get double the tickets for a limited time. But now I’m not showing that I am even given the option to win tickets. Outside of the tickets the game is amazing.

Game. This game is one of the best games I've ever played!! It lets you help Austin (the butler) renovate and grow his garden!! Yeah sure sometimes the levels do get so annoying that i ignore the game for almost several months, but thats the ONLY reason i gave it a four star. In this game, there are rarely ANY ads! (Also, i tried putting a four-and-a-half star but it just wouldn’t let me). One thing that i like about this game is that if you are a gardener who wants to make their garden look better than it already is, this game is perfect for you 😊😊🙂. And if you are more like a indoor house person who wants to make their house look better than it already is, i highly recommend playing Homescapes because homescapes is basically the same game as Gardenscapes just its renovating and making the HOUSE look better than it already is. Also, in both of these games, after you reach a certain level, you’re allowed to either join or create a team. If you join a team you can chat and interact with people you’ve never met before.(of course you have to interact through your chats in the chat box.). If you create a team you have got to name it, describe it, choose a logo out of the options they give you, and confirm and hope people join. I hope you like this game!!! Good luck!🍀 👍🏻 have fun!!😉😀😀😊😄🥳

Best game. I’ve been playing this game for five years since I was pregnant with my five year old! This and Homescapes I downloaded when they came out and every penny spent has been worth it. I love the golden tickets and I’m looking forward to another holiday season full of decorations and new challenges! I play every day and spin the daily wheel everyday for five years and I’ve only hit the jackpot twice so that’s a little rigged. I think the reward for people who play daily should be greater and those who spend money. Maybe offer a yearly golden ticket package? 25 for the year? I would buy that for sure. Plus I’ve only finished a few room renovations and a few golden tickets and again I play everyday and I think I’m pretty good, so I don’t want it to be too easy but maybe offer more unlimited power ups during those events. Those help so much but sometimes even if I have all three going unlimited for 15 minutes I only get through one super hard level and they are wasted on one level. Just a few suggestions for ya. But overall this and Homescapes are amazing games that literally help me relax and clear my mind. My husband can’t believe how faithfully I play but after three kids all day long cooking cleaning and a cake business I need some me time playing my games!

Harder levels but terrible rewards throughout the game.. This game is/was very well addicting and advertised but the fact that the game gets harder when you get further but you don’t get better rewards is ridiculous and cheap. I’m not giving you my hard earned money for some pay to play bull crap. Give me better rewards the deeper I get into the game. Don’t get me wrong I love the difficulty of the levels but my rewards stayed the same no matter how far and long I played a specific level/levels. You add all types of crap to make the levels harder but you don’t give us better rewards? Kinda stupid if you ask me. For future references keep that same energy for rewards if you’re going to make the levels harder. It’s kinda hard to beat a level if you keep getting the “no more moves” sign in your face. Also why don’t my bombs explode at the end of every game I play, even if I didn’t finish the level in the right amount of moves? Y’all really just made up rules as you went along with this game. Doesn’t make any sense at all. It’s petty and ridiculous. Also I should have access to my extra bombs and electric balls or whatever they’re called at all times. I worked hard to get them or earned them by waiting everyday for the wheel spin. That’s foolish, continuing to stop me from completing a level by not allowing me to use my own rewards in the middle of a match. Fix yourselves!!!!

Addictive, too easy to spend money.. This is a fun, entertaining, story telling, somewhat educational game. The artwork is nice, the logic to keeping you playing has been thought out, and it is pretty easy to play. You can win each level without power ups, but it is real tempting and very easy to buy power ups or to extend game just a few more plays. I have spent too much money in this game and am about ready to end it. But it was my choice to spend the money and Apple sends you a report on your expenditures so you can say WHAT! One big problem, when you run out of battery and your devices powers down (ok, that is the players fault), when you power back up and re-enter the game and the last level you were playing, the game thinks you had lost the level and the power ups you had stored in the bucket or chest are gone!!! The developers might consider not removing the power ups until after the last move of a level that ends the level, not during a crash. I lost a full chest of power ups after this loss of power crash (I did not plug in the iPad in time) and am finding it almost impossible to recover, or I need to spend more money. And I am done spending money. Time for me to move on, but I hope the developers can fix this issue. Until they do, don’t run out of power while playing this game!

Addicting, But Frustrating. First of all, I want to say that I love absolutely love this game! It is very well advertised, and it is such good quality. I really enjoy the storyline and the beautiful garden. However, I do have a couple of problems with this game. During the first couple of days I easily went through and played the levels. However, when I hit the 60’s it got hard. Now, I’m not complaining about the difficulty level, but there is a frustrating cycle when you just can’t complete a level. If you don’t have enough coins to buy more moves, then you don’t have enough coins to buy a power up. You can spin the wheel every day to win prizes, but you rarely get something you can use to win that level. Also, if you can’t when the levels and you don’t get any stars, and if you don’t get any stores and you can’t complete any of the challenges and win coins! You see where I’m going with this?It’s almost like the game is forcing you to purchase coins if you need an extra boost I a level.😕 Even after all this, I still love this game and gave it four stars for its originality and fun! I do ask that there be an easier way to get coins, though, like on Homescapes when you check in consecutively, you get coin rewards. I think that would be a great addition to Gardenscapes! Thank you to all the creators of this game, you guys are awesome!

I love the gam, but…. This is actually my favorite game and I’ve been playing it for a few years. I enjoy the garden building as the motivator and reward for passing levels and I prefer this type of match 3 game. I like it better than their Homescapes game. However, the further you get into the game, the more and more money you have to spend to progress. Past a certain level, ads are no longer offered to earn gems so you have to spend a long time on levels that are giving you trouble, or pay for gems and powerups. In addition, they’ve added “seasons” which are about $5 per season. I’m willing to pay this, but that amount a month seems like a reasonable amount of money for them to be getting from me without making things so difficult that it requires more and more purchases. The challenge levels add insult to injury as they are designed to make you use all powerups and gems to pass this level to earn the rewards - I had better luck getting streaks without this “bonus” which causes you to lose your streak powerups. So, very soon I will have to stop playing this game. Just not comfortable putting this much money into a game.

FRUSTRATING!!!. At one time, many moons ago, I gave this game 5 stars. It was such a fun game and I played 3-4 times a day. I’m not sure what has happened in recent updates, but I cannot play this game anymore without being kicked out every time the screen changes. It takes 2-3 minutes to load the game and once I get in, I get a reward and then booted. I might get to play one game and then I get kicked out. Every time any characters have dialogue, I get to read about one sentence and then booted. I used to be able to play with my friends and receive lives from them; but not any more. I can give lives to other players on my team, but I can’t give them to my sister because her requests aren’t showing up. I have purchased golden tickets in the past because they were a lot of fun. If something isn’t done to fix the problems, I will be done with the game. I cannot compete or complete any races or other reward games. I know I am not the online person with these problems. I see A LOT of people going through the same aggravation on the Gardenscapes Facebook page. These issues have been going on for at least 5 months. Can someone at Playerix please tell me how to fix these issues? I have deleted and reinstalled. I have cleared cache. I have removed other games to keep this one. HELP.....!!!

Not bad until you buy a golden ticket- then it’s a bigger money grab. I have been playing this game for well over a year. It has been my go to stress reliever. However, I began to notice certain things that I did not like but the game play was fun enough so I continued to play it. That is until I made the mistake of buying a golden ticket. At first I noticed that some levels were not labeled hard but were more difficult to pass than the hard ones. I was always asked to make a purchase. Which I did not and eventually would get through the level within a day or two. However, I purchased a golden ticket for the first time since I began playing this game and have been stuck on a hard level ever since! It’s been well over a week now and I can’t get through this level. It’s not even a super hard level. The game keeps asking me to purchase stuff. I refuse. I feel like I’ve been swindled. There are other problems I see with this game. 1. The daily bonus lands on the rainbow almost every day. 2, you have to choose the power ups before you even see the level. 3. Why are all the levels worth one star when you have three category levels? 4. The pace halts to a crawl. Unless you spend money on this game, you will not advance as quickly. I feel that this game has become less about the user having fun and more about getting the user to spend money. And even with a golden ticket, they want you to spend more. This game can be a lot of fun but I think that algorithm need to be fixed.

Love this game. The game is great so many things to do I love how it’s not your everyday puzzle game. You finish a puzzle and get stars and actually get to do something like making the garden beautiful. I do wish there were easier ways to get money to buy the extra garden designs examples the fairytale and Greek looking garden options or drop the price because over 8000 for some will take forever to get also it’d be nice for more options of getting lives not everyone has friends that can send lives to them or can get into one of those alliances with a lot of active people so I think a way to get lives easier would be nice I get so into the game then get stuck waiting thirty minutes just for one life. I love the game though other than that I definitely can’t complain it’s so much fun. I also love how they give you chances to change the house I think we should get an option to paint the house the colors we want also it’ll give it even more of our own personal touch to the house when not using the holiday themes. Keep up the great work. I’d of given 5 stars but because of those few things I feel would help the game I gave 4 hopefully in time I can give that 5th star because this game definitely deserves it please consider adding better ways to get lives and money to buy in game items and painting the house for our own personal touch for when we aren’t using one of the holiday themes.

Changed The Game To a Money grab.. I first played this game about two years ago, I was flying through the levels, very much enjoying the game, then took a break around level 150. I recently got back into the game, now I’m stuck on level 412, it’s a “super hard” level but, without any boosters or pay to continues its entirely impossible, unless you are super lucky and get a tnt every move you make. But let’s be real. From the previous time I was into this game I managed to save up over 30,000 coins because I could make it through levels without having to use all of my coins to get more boosters or moves. I’m now at 2,000 because it’s almost impossible to get through some of the harder levels without boosters. I decided to look up the level I’m stuck on to see if people are also having a difficult time with the level, and to my surprise, a video from two years ago had 10 more moves at the beginning of the level!! Not to mention, the bonus moves you can get during the level have decreased in the amount of moves you receive, and one is entirely missing. Now the game is spamming me to “buy more boosters!” “buy more lives!” “buy more coins!”“buy the pass to receive boosters!” It’s sad what they slowly turned this game into. The game used to be very good, now it’s completely turned me, and many other people off. Revert the levels to how they used to be, and the game will be enjoyable again.

Missed it by one. As others, I came by this game due to the misleading ads. That’s not the only thing wrong with this game. As for not spending a dime and enjoying this game, you would have to be a zen master not to get frustrated. You can play free, of course, but be prepared to play the same level many many many many times before you get a glimmer of hope. And this is where I think the game is rigged. There were too many, way too many, times where my moves were at 0 but I still had one thing to collect/destroy. Butterflies appearing only after I made my last move, a firecracker appearing just after your last move, etc. That tactic is used to get you to press that continue button and spend 900 coins. What??? You don’t have 900 coins because you just used all your coins on power ups for the very hard level and breeze through that to find that the next regular level is harder than the vey hard level? That’s how they get you. Tempt you to press that button to get more coins. So my take is unless you have a trust fund or have the patience of a zen master, steer clear of this game. I’m at level 1637 and been stuck there for a couple of days now because I had to use 3 sets of power ups to get past a normal level. Yes that’s 9 power ups for a normal level. Go figure. I can’t be a zen master anymore. I’m deleting this game. Same goes for Homescapes. Same problem same company.

Fun, but the game cheats to try to get your money. I’ve been playing this for many months now, and while I enjoy the premise and the gameplay, I found that the game purposely tries to prevent me leveling up. I currently have 23 extra lives (probably the 5th or 6th time I’ve accumulated this amount) that I got from the daily spin. I purposely press the stop button on different parts of the wheel, and yet I STILL get extra lives every time. It’s totally fixed. I’ve found myself stuck on levels for weeks because what I really need is a power up to give me the edge to pass the level, but I’m buried alive in extra lives instead. Additionally, I’ve found that if I start blowing through levels too quickly, the game will purposely make my lose a level by refusing to drop the needed shape. I’ve had more than twelve moves left to me after gathering all the gnomes or the lemonade but one, and despite making matches right beneath where I need things to be rearranged, the game will just keep dropping useless shapes for all of my 12 moves and purposely prevent me from winning. I’ve noticed that the only way to combat this programmed cheating is to just stop playing. I won’t open the app for days and then suddenly the game provides everything I need to pass a level I’d been stuck on for 9 days. It’s very frustrating, and there have been several times I’ve considered just deleting it.

Lacking support. I hate to even admit that I’ve spent money on a game, but on Gardenscapes, I have. Now I have a problem. One day I go on to see that everything is gone. I’ve been pushed back levels that I’ve already beaten. One being a “super hard level” and one of the reasons I spent money on this game. (Although I have also purchased coins on many other occasions, it took me 2 days of failing this level before I gave in to buying some help). Aside from being pushed back, everything is gone. No more toy chests, no more dog levels, tasks I’ve done, and stars that I had accrued. (I like to save them up and do a lump of tasks at once.) I contacted support through the in-app feature. While waiting on their response, I resumed playing to beat the same levels once again. Once support got back to me, I was advised to delete the app, restart my phone and download the app again. Although I had already tried that, I did it again. This time...THE SAME THING HAPPENS! All of the games features are still missing, but once again I am pushed back to the same level as before and the stars I had gained while waiting for support to get back to me are gone. I tell this to support and I am still waiting on a response. I’d be more than happy to send screenshots showing that all features are missing. Had I not spent money on this game, I would not be complaining, but this is unfair. Either my game needs to be fixed or I need to be refunded.

Please fix rocket/firecracker priorities. I love this game and have been playing it for several months. I’m around the 1700 level mark and I have to make a complaint. The firecracker rocket things (the icon is a colorful cluster of three of them together) are normally supposed to go after crates or firefly jars, things you need to clear the level. But what’s frustrating is to be down to the last turn and I make a match with one, which should clear the one last crate or item.... and instead the stupid things go after a piece of fruit or leaf with a renovation ticket vs the thing I needed to complete the level. This is especially infuriating when I’ve got all the extra power ups from the treasure chest like the extra turns, bombs etc but then because the stupid rockets go after the ticket instead of the needed item to clear the round I end up losing and because I don’t have 900 coins left I loose the treasure chest items. This keeps happening and it’s super frustrating. If the rockets are supposed to help you clear times needed to finish the level then have it do that 100% of the time. I would rather finish the level than get tickets... which I lose anyways for losing the level so it make absolutely no sense at all. Otherwise I love the game. I hope you can fix this issue.

My favorite phone game. I've been playing this game now for definitely over a year and it has come such a long way. It used to be SUCH a pay-to-play and the levels were impossibly hard so you felt hopeless. But it was the beautiful visuals and the cute storyline that kept me playing. As I got to later levels and the developers fixed all the little kinks in it, it's now arguably perfect. They have provided easier ways to get coins than just by winning levels, like a daily wheel spin, the introduction of "hard levels" (give you double the coins but really aren't often any harder than regular levels), frequent mini events that provide additional coins, power-ups, or even infinite lives for a period of time. Love it love it. My only complaint is that I wish I could put that time limit for infinite lives on hold in some way. I can't tell you how many times I've just thought to maybe play a couple games during a break at work or right before bed.. and then those are the times I hit jackpot 😰 One time during an event I went all the way to the top and got 8 hours total of infinite lives right before bed and ended up staying up all night because I didn't want to waste it. I was dead at work the next day.

Addicting, Love it! But.... This game is so much fun, I LOVE playing it on my free time. However, I have to agree with everyone else that thinks the game could be more fair. These puzzles aren’t easy, some get very difficult the higher the levels. More should be rewarded to us when we win, not just one star & 50 coins? It’s ridiculous, because this game is a great addictive game. Also, I don’t understand why it has to cost so much coins when we run out of turns, seriously 900 coins for the first second chance & it just keeps going higher. Why can’t it be 100 coins, because when we pass we don’t get rewarded enough! It’s just isn’t fair to the players who really want to win so we have to throw some actual money away to buy turns when the game isn’t giving us enough. One more thing, is that when a level consist of stuff like the flowers or having to get 8-10 cups more turns should be given to us, it’s hard & it doesn’t make sense to have less turns then what you’re asking us to collect, if that makes sense. Please, I hope you guys read this! I hope some major modifications are taken into notice because this game could be even more great! It gets tiring to struggle, & you’ll lose customers. Please, again just take some notice, fix these little things! Thank you for you time!

Fun but annoying. This game is definitely addicting and can be fun, but also very frustrating at times. As others have mentioned the levels get progressively harder as you go on. You can end up wasting lots of power ups and coins trying to beat a level and still lose. Also the rewards stay pretty much the same so you’re basically always getting diminishing returns as you play. But by far the most annoying thing for me is the multi-step process needed to restart a level when you lose or decide to quit. Whenever there is any kind of challenge active where you have to collect things or earn rewards, there is always a pop up where Austin asks if you are ABSOLUTELY SURE you want to lose your rewards/collected items from that level, trying to get you to use your coins and continue. Yes Austin, I am 100% sure I would rather give up these 15 apples I matched than waste my coins on 5 more useless moves that will bring me no where close to winning the level. Of course there is no option to disable these popups, probably because they are just a poorly disguised attempt to get people to spend money on coins. This used to be less of a problem because there weren’t always challenges going on so usually there would be no popup. Now the challenges are constant, and I have to mash the end level button multiple times to blow through Austin’s unhelpful advice every single time I lose or quit.

Great Game, But.... So, I’ve been playing this game for a while (and I mean a while...) like, close to the 7,000 level range and I’ve been having mixed feelings with this game. First of all I do enjoy playing it, but I have a few complaints for some levels. I’ve seen a response where the developers left a message saying all levels are beatable without power ups. While this may be true, the levels are very random. What I mean is this, if you replay a level, fruits or whatever is there don’t say in the same place. You will have to reset the level just to be able to make a huge blast power up to help clear levels. Some levels also have so few turns that it’s super hard to beat unless you get a perfect start. Sometimes you’re forced to you a power up or all 3 to just clear a stage. Especially in the later stages, you would need to keep as many power ups just for that purpose. I have played stages as well where easy stages would act as hard or expert levels, and have few amounts of turns. The same with certain hard levels where it instead should be an expert level. I do love the fact that there are these challenges where you can beat a level consecutively to earn extra power ups. Those definitely help, but you can easily lose them. So, while I do love the game, I have to give it a 3 out of 5 stars. Just because of the the way some of the levels are made.

Update to last coment (update again). Went back in to beat the level again, only to have it crash, again!!! Thats twice on the same level, making me lose another bomb booster and 900 coins along with it! That is now two bomb boosters, 3,000 coins, and two lived your game has cost me in less than 30 minutes on only one level because of crashes. Im really frustrated right now, please help! Update: Not sure if this was a response to my last review but i did end up getting 2000 coins from the developers a few weeks ago which was nice of them (though this was months after I posted my review and I cant find any sort of response from them)! The game doesnt crash anymore at the end of a level which is great! though the levels are still frustratingly hard at times that makes me quit while playing. One question though with the new update it wants you to try out the golden ticket for free, while that is nice of them to let us, id prefer not to and just go the normal path, but its not letting me say no, is there anyway to forego this cause im unable to claim any stage prize unless i try the golden ticket. other than that the game has improved and is becoming more fun to play, hence it getting bumped up to 4 stars 😁

If you are looking for an honest review here it is. I have been playing this game for years, and when I say years I think it has been over 4 years that I have been playing this game. If you are looking for a well balanced game, look elsewhere. Challenge levels make the game almost impossible because you have such a slim chance of winning them. And when you build up those combo boosts from winning levels in a succession only to loose them on a stupid challenge level that was designed to be near impossible, it just ruins the whole experience. Hard and impossible levels have such a ridiculously small amount of moves that even with 5 starter combo boosts I lost the level 5 times in a row. It’s hard to get boosts, it’s hard to get money in this game and it’s even more annoying to wait for lives while you watch a 20 min boost you just got tick away. It’s not very well balanced, a lot of the levels are unfair and sometimes it’s better to drop the game for a few months so at least you get the welcome back bonus and actually have something to help you win the impossible levels. Overall, I would not recommend this game and say you look elsewhere so you too can avoid getting frustrated at the absolutely broken game mechanics.

Relaxing game.... I really enjoy playing this game, great graphics, challenging puzzles, customizable settings, cute storylines and I enjoy playing after work or when I have some free time. Things I would tweak: Austin is a gardener...not a butler (picky, but it just annoys me 😉), to move along faster in the game you need to purchase boosts (I no longer do this, so it just takes much longer to get free boosts), the 1 daily free spin is appreciated but the game needs more opportunities to get boosts, and finally the need to solve 1 puzzle to earn 1 star. Depending on what you are trying to accomplish (clean an area, plant a tree, renovate an architectural structure), the game requires so many stars for each task. Many times the required stars are more than what I think is reasonable, or they break the task up into 2 or even 3 parts (meaning even more stars). Finally, the special events like transforming the mansion or a part of the garden for the holidays (Christmas, Halloween...) have a time limit, but no break on the number of stars or an increase in coins to “purchase” more boosts. Towards the very end of the event the game will double the stars or coins, but almost too late unless you play constantly. So overall I would recommend the game, but for casual play & relaxing and don’t get caught up in trying to go thru it quickly.

I will literally never delete this game. I have had this game for three years, and I love it more than any other game I have ever downloaded. I love how many things austin can say. The graphics are amazing! I like how when ever you click on something it makes a noise, like if you tap bush is makes a like bush sound or if you click on ice it makes an ice clinking sound. The sheer effort they put into the little social page you can click on is so cute, like im sure not too many people look at it, but its always there, ya know? I love gardening in real life, and I love gardening in the game too, its just so green and lush I love it. If I get to a hard level, I may just stop playing for a few months, but in the end I will always come back. I love my dog (his name is goose!), and how sometimes theres those little training levels. I love the background music its so calming. I do wish there was a way, if you truly needed to, to skip a level like maybe a special ticket thats only available from the treasure chest on the daily wheel. Im 17 years old (female) and my friends sometimes make fun of me for playing it and they call me an old lady but I dont care, I will play this game as long as it exists. I dream to one day finish my beautiful garden alongside my trusty butler, Austin:)

Favorite game :). I downloaded the game based on the click bait of a story line where you are given the options to save the girl, save the house from burning, etc. The actual game is nothing of the sort. I also noticed that the game will cheat you to try and get you to spend money. If I’m stuck on a level that I’ve lost 20 times, I won’t log on for several days and all of a sudden when I come back, I have “welcome back” rewards, and I can beat said level in 6 moves. That is so annoying. The challenge level is actually perfect for me, not too easy but not too hard. No one would play a game with zero challenge. The reward wheel is annoying too. I’ve played for quite a long time now and have hit jackpot one time. Almost every other time I get rainbow blast, but never anything else that could be helpful. Overall, this is a fun game to pass the time but it could definitely use some improvements. It IS very visually appealing, and I love the calming music and sound effects. I also love Austin’s borderline creepy personality and positivity. One last thing that I like is that there are no pop up ads and those type of annoyances. I’m the type of person that will spend a few dollars on a game if it is fair and if I feel that the devs deserve it FOR being fair.

Please start telling the truth in your ads. I downloaded this game thinking the complete opposite of what the game is actually about. This game is about rebuilding the garden of his childhood. You complete furniture with collecting starts. You collect these starts from a mini game very similar to candy crush but it’s related to the garden. But let’s get to the point. I downloaded this game from an ad. There are many ads saying that you either, save him and the girl from Antarctica, or you have to save the house with out failing, or save the garden without getting a fail. All the ads make the person fail but making it really easy to chose the correct answers. Me and my friend decided to try this game for my little sister to play. Without even thinking how some of the ads don’t even go with the point of the game. Later on it was downloaded and my sister had no idea what to do. I then knew that the ads where straight clickbait so this game could grown even more! These ads are even used in their game Home Scapes. Other than the ads clickbaited probably many people, this game gets a 3 star. Not a 4 or a 5 because of how difficult the levels are to get starts, it can take days to finish some. At the start it was easy but then the challenge came where I was stuck on for many many days! Any way that my review. Thank you for reading and I hope you can stop the clickbait, thanks!

Enjoyable game. I had to put this at the highest ranking I could in order for the team to see it and acknowledge. There have been a lot of game apps advertising for things they just don’t do. I can live with that as disheartening that it can be. But to me it seams that they keep aiming more and more for the shock factor as time goes by. First we are seeing the woman getting cheated on or her husband leaves her because she shows him a pregnancy test. Then it is the man cheating on her as she is watching from the side lines with their child. Then she is watching from the side lines with their child AND she is pregnant. Then the other scenario is where the man is with the other woman kicking out the wife sometimes keeping the child from her or sometimes kicking the kid out too. In the ending scene the freeze to death. But today I have SEEN IT ALL this time the woman finds a baby in THE DUMPSTER! Are you seriously kidding me right now? Is there a level you won’t stoop to? When I see this type of ads for games I actually play. I delete them. You should be ashamed at how desperate you are to get your games noticed. They were already noticed and enjoyed until you jumped on this bandwagon.

Fun but frustrating. I got started because I enjoy getting away from every day stressful life. This game is extremely frustrating. They’ve dropped the amount of moves you make at each level, and it’s now more a “pay to play” game. Constantly promoting competitions, etc. but to achieve any kind of awards you need to pay for bonuses, lives, etc. to move forward. Yes, it’s your choice to pay or not...however when/if you don’t, you can be stuck on a level days or weeks! No exaggeration! And if you use bonuses to start with that you can win 1 each day spinning a wheel, they put the bonus (bomb, rainbow, etc) in a useless spot that you either have to use immediately to make your next move, nullifying the bonus or putting it somewhere where it’s stuck and you can’t use at all. It was fun to begin favorite part is decorating the garden...I really enjoy that and competing with my team for prizes. However to continually get stuck with no chance of winning before your time is up and then because you’re not advancing you can’t compete for prizes in competitions and get rewards, not fun. Unless and until they fix some issues (others complain about constant crashes, missing awards, etc) and reinstate the moves you took away a few months ago... I may be done. Sad when all a game thinks about is how much money they can take as well as enjoyment. And tech support is non-existent. Gamer beware....

Kinda over it. I was obsessed with this game when I first started, I played everyday! It took up all my free time. But the more and more I played, I kept getting discouraged because it feels like they want you to lose? Is this a tactic to get you to pay actual dollars to buy coins? Because it doesn’t work. I’ve been stuck on a level for almost a week and I have no idea how I would be able to beat it. And I’m not about to spend my hard earned money on a game that is triggered to make you lose. They give you only a few playable pieces to begin with, more obstacles than you can clear, and only like 30 moves? At the MOST? IMPOSSIBLE. And whenever I used one of the few boosters I won to help, they gave me NO other option but to use them as soon as the game started. And they put them right where they would have no effect whatsoever. I wouldn’t even be able to move them lower to where the obstacles were! And when you won coins to actually do something with the garden, it was for stupid things like merely calling someone or setting up a tea meeting? I want to decorate a GARDEN, not entertain guests? I wasted SO much time on this game for nothing. I thought it’d be a fun easy game to play on my free time to relieve some stress, but honestly, it gave me more stress than I already had! I will be deleting! If you’re thinking about downloading this game, have fun being stuck on a level for 500 years and then getting no reward anyway!

Really fun at first then it all goes downhill. I’m on level 6053 so I’ve been playing a long time. The game is super fun and there’s no other game that I’ve found that’s like it. If there is I wish I could find it. There are plenty of match 3 games but their puzzles are not like the ones in Gardenscapes. I could care less about the fixing things in the garden part of the game but the graphics are great and it looks really nice if you do care about it. There are also lots of extra events and such. Where it all goes downhill is that the value for the power-ups that can be purchased is really ridiculous. You get very little for what you buy. You’d think the developers are actually in a sweatshop pounding out bombs and such and trying to keep up with demand. It’s really ridiculous. And the game gets progressively harder until it’s virtually impossible to beat many of the levels without some kind of power-up (unless you want to spend several boring days playing the same level over and over and over and over) and often you’ll need several tries anyway, so lots of power-ups. So, expensive or boring that’s your two choices. I’m really struggling to come up with a rating for the game. It’s 5 star game until you hit that wall where you have to spend money to play.

Letting players know. I'm letting all of you know that think you have to pay to beat a level is not true. Yes you can pay for the coins and stuff if you want. But it's just a matter of trial and error. I'm on level 559 and have not spent a dime of real money. I only use the coins I earn and the prizes I win with the wheel and events, sometimes it doesn't work out and I don't beat it but it doesn't mean I have to pay to win, I spent weeks on a level before keep trying don't give up and when you finally get a good set up the satisfaction is greater when you win. I love this game with the storyline it brings. I love trying to guess the new area when the other is complete. Same thing goes for Homescapes both are amazing. (I'm on level 289 and spent no real money on it) Both games for all levels trial and error. Don't give up don't get frustrated. Support the developers by keeping the games. You can buy the sales offer. But just because you can't beat a level in a certain amount of days or weeks doesn't mean it's set up to where you have to pay to win. All levels in all games are made to be beaten without pay or upgrades. Paying to help doesn't mean you'll beat the level then. So don't get mad at the developers.

I love it and it’s fun to play but..... First off, I just want to say that I absolutely love this game. I love the aspect of decorating the home, the plot, all of that. The only thing that gripes me about it is that, the game is so transparent in the fact that they make like 2 or 3 levels in a row super easy like passing it in 1 or 2 lives and then they’ll give you a level that you can’t pass for a week, like making it impossible, and you can only pass if you use the power ups or use the coins for more turns. After about a week and the game notices that you don’t use any of it, they make the level on probably the 9th day SUPER easy to pass and you’ll move on. I’ve noticed this about 6 or 7 times in the game and I’m upper 100 levels. Now to be fair, A LOT of puzzle games are like this. Homescapes is just visually appealing enough to make it bearable. The reason why I don’t mind it so much is because I play it a lot on my free time or when I’m bored so playing it, knowing I’m going to lose a level because they’ll make me wait to see if I use the power ups, is killing time for me until I actually pass it. Besides all of that, if you don’t like games that have that same interface and strategy with its players then this game is probably not for you, but it is a very well looking game with load of fun puzzles to play from!

Buyer Beware. You can play this game without having to pay for lives or boosts, but you will almost certainly experience extremely slow progress and repeated close calls where you almost complete a level, while they dangle the promise of getting through the level as merely a purchase away. There is constant pressure to make the in-game purchases as they auto enroll you in tournament after tournament, where you will only do well as long as you continue to buy additional coins (credits) and lives. And all of that may be fine if you are willing to make those purchases, but be aware that there will be no loyalty to you as their customer. Purchased credits are rapidly depleted as suddenly levels become more difficult to complete, squeezing you to continue making additional purchases. If you happen to encounter a bug with any of the levels, and attempt to wind through the confusing labyrinth of customer service questions and screens (talking to a bot most of the way), you will experience long lag times between responses, and the human on the other side will frustrate you by asking for information you have already provided. They do not stand behind their product, and they have no sympathy for their paying customers who encounter technical issues with their product. Customer service is virtually nonexistent. For me, that was the dealbreaker.

Great game, and I don’t spend money on it ever. I don’t understand the temptation to spend money on this game??? While I can see how easy it is to spend money, I never have and never will. For me, whenever the “buy” messages appear, I ignore them. When you are out of energy or lives, to me that is the cue to put the game down and shift focus to another activity, possibly that doesn’t involve playing another game on your mobile device or tablet. When I’ve exhausted my lives, I've already spent a considerable amount of time playing GardenScapes and it’s now time to do something else, like cook dinner, wash the dishes, sweep the floor, etc. This reminds me of how great this game is constructed. At the point when you’ve exhausted your current lives, you must wait a time period before a life or lives are regenerated. In essence, there is a subliminal message in this game that tacitly tells you to keep your priorities in order, and not be so obsessed with constantly playing a game for hours upon hours. I appreciate the sociological/psychological aspect of GardenScapes. Finally, the game is very impressive and the graphics are exceptional. The developers should be commended on how well they’ve constructed the game.

Bait & Switch: A shameless money grab. Don’t download this game... for so many reasons. Foremost - it is a standard match-3, decorate your garden/house game, but not only do NO ads for it show actual gameplay, they advertise completely different game types! This is not a “How to Loot” game, nor is it based on “Make a Choice to Save Their Lives”. However, that’s what all the ads would have you believe. That’s a deplorable business practice known as Bait and Switch. Deplorable, and in many places, illegal. if Playrix were a brick and mortar business, they’d be in trouble. To top things off, the actual game has level after level which - while technically possible to beat w/out using boosts/buying extra moves - rely on sheer luck to defeat. There are even levels which are constructed in such a manner as to immediately negate any boosts you *might* start with! Like I said in the title: Shameless. Lying. Money grab. Even if they used ads which depicted the same style of gameplay... the number of levels which force you to rely on luck - and luck alone - make this game an exercise in futility, and would be enough to only net the game a second star. Only took me 1400+ lvls to finally give up on this waste of time, money, and peace of mind. Sad thing is, I was looking forward to actually playing a “Make a Choice to Save Their Lives” game when I downloaded this! (For that matter, I’d love to play the imaginary “How to Loot”!)

A great but expensive game. An interesting match-3 game with real dialogue written well and at a level accessible to everyone, this game can consume many hours. However, they penalize high level players with levels that require power ups to complete, and with others that, if you have automatic power ups due to events running, ruin a supposedly-clever mechanic and make the level unbeatable. Of course, you can keep spending money for more turns (which is undoubtedly the goal) but it’s very easy to spend $30 in micro transactions and their “best deals” are usually not. However, the game itself is largely stable. The one giant caveat is that if you are in the midst of a level and receive a call (when playing on your phone) the game may restart and not only do you lose any progress on that level, but if you had automatic boosters, they are forfeited even if you paid for then. Contacting support only gets to a token reply that this is functioning as intended and basically you’re screwed. Please do more money in the portal on your way out. The oft-requested feature of waiting to use free lives until one had time is never answered, so enjoy six hours of unlimited lives right before bed. Still, it’s the most enjoyable “free” game out there, and by far the best game in the “Scapes” series.

Would be 5 but too hard. The graphics are so cute and I like everything about this game but it's too freaking hard! It takes me a week of playing to maybe finish one level. And I didn't even get the daily spins until level 24! And you don't get anything for not passing. It's incredibly frustrating and I wish we could at least friend people in the game without Facebook. Just other neighbors so I can get lives. This is ridiculously hard and normally I don't mind purchasing in-game as a thank you but when they rig it like this it just makes me go the opposite way. You have 2 layers plus items chained up? It makes it impossible. If you're going to make it so hard, at least don't limit the number of turns then. Update: I’ve been stuck on level 179 or something for a couple of months and I’ve used all the boosts and paid coins to keep going but the lemonade kept getting stuck in the side thing that moves along the border and I wasted like 5600 coins and 7 shovels and all three boosts on that attempt. I’m so close to quitting forever. I have paid probably $40 after playing for over 6 months and refuse to spend another penny on this greedy developer’s game. Also I have like 48 lives just sitting in the envelope from the daily spin, why is that even a prize??? I don’t give a crap about free lives when the levels are this hard.

Problems.. Okay I’d like to say a few things.. with these type of apps, suggesting gardenscapes, homescapes, matchington mansion and other playful games, I’m getting of sick of the amount of ads that show during different social media sites and games. Like I get that you want advertisements and people to get your games for reviews, rates and money, but maybe just lower the amount of ads? Also, while we are talking about ads, I’m getting quite disturbed and triggered of how the ads show something completely irrelevant to what the game actually does. For example, I might be playing a different game and an ad will pop up in the middle of it, I could watch the ad and think that “Oh! This looks like a fun game! Let me get it!” And so I will go and download this game right? But when it’s finished downloading, I go into it and it’s a WHOLE DIFFERENT GAME!! I just wanted to say this. Hope you fix this and fix the ad problems. Thanks for listening and giving your time to read this.

Garden scapes. hi, your game is really good and really entertaining but there’s only on problem , when you get to level 23 and above they get a little bit to hard so then I don’t really want to play it anymore because when its to hard it get boring. Also there’s not to much you can do, for eg: it only has two things such as changing things and playing that little game that is boring in the harder levels , it was actually really fun when the levels weren’t so hard. Other then that the game is really good and fun! This game would go in my top 13 favorite game. That’s pretty good for when I am saying this. Congratulations for such a good game!!! I would also appreciate if you could change the levels to easier levels. Thank you very much for your time. Sincerely Melfit2368

It’s Relaxing - latest update not so good :(. Latest update is not letting me open up this app. It keeps logging me out! I’ve got progress that I need to save! Anyways., It’s a good game and I play it during transit to and from work by train or bus. I also play it when I’m ignoring people., until I run out of lives then I have no choice but to socialise. However., I agree with other reviews., other side missions is not worth my time because I want to build this virtual garden not fix helicopter., or fix a kite etc. I’m always stuck on levels for about 20-50 lives because the game wants me to use up my money to move onto the next level! I mean., seriously? Can’t I just save my pretend money and make it easier after say 10 tries or even 5??? I’m broke in real life., so being “virtually rich” is awesome!!! Three stars is sometimes too much for something simple! Also., I tried to skip those challenges eg the fireworks or Apple challenge., yes I want to participate and NO I don’t want to see my rank! But for some reason when I press the “X” button the game shows me the score board 🥱🤦🏽‍♀️ I don’t care., I want to escape and play in peace! Overall it’s a good time wasting game and it’s entertaining enough!

Nice, but could be a little fairer.. Haven’t been playing long, but am thoroughly enjoying the puzzles. However I’m finding that some are extremely hard and I feel in order to make you spend money, now I get randomized drops and such but when power ups pop next to each other or a level requires six more moves to get through to the other side, (Level 96 is a testament to that and one I’m stuck on now wanting to spend real money to complete). The levels with dirt and ore seem a tad ridiculous with portals and not much room for the items to drop for you to switch about to get power ups, can barely get fireworks let alone a tnt bundle, would love to be able to make a barrel on these levels. Otherwise it’s fun, but would like to see the levels that spiked my interest, with the scissors and tape and things that you need to fix.

Disappointed. Themed events like the Christmas one are impossible to complete when it takes 3 weeks just to complete one level and that level isn’t even labelled as hard. I have used power ups and extra turns - all to no avail. Very disappointed! Don’t tell me to read how to play either! If you select a power up at the beginning of a game we should be able to place it wherever and whenever we would like to use it not where it is randomly put. More often than not they are placed in a position where a move could make a power up so rendered useless. I do like how we can change our decorative choices so as change the gardens look from time to time. I am just very frustrated and disappointed that I can never complete the themed events. I play morning, noon and night but am now so disappointed I am ready to delete the game.

Great game but.... I have been playing this game for a long time now, first on my phone and now on the ipad. I have just finally completed level 848 after being stuck there for months. It happens, I’ve been stuck on a level before, last time it was 3weeks. I really think there should be more rewards for sheer perseverance, or something else to do in the game so you can still enjoy it, have fun, and to encourage you to keep coming back while you are stuck. Just about everyone I know that was playing has now stopped because they got stuck on a level, and I very nearly stopped playing too. It gets very boring very quickly playing the same level over and over again for weeks or months

It’s good but has down falls.. This game is great when I am bored but you don’t get enough stars to keep updating the garden and only 1 date per level is insane when you have to do so Many things that don’t involve gardening and takes way too long to do... the second fountain is on day 3 now and still not complete and I play on my iPad and iPhone. I’m getting to the point I don’t want to play anymore and on my iPhone I’m only level 92! It’s all becoming too slow and there’s things I just don’t want to do and you can’t skip them and HAVE to do them. I’m Starting to lose interest purely because it’s just taking too long to do anything and seems to be rigged to get people spending. I love this game but I’m tired of levels that take too long to do, a garden area that’s taking WAY too long to finish and levels that really should give extra stars to complete levels but don’t so when you’re out of lives and want to do things in the garden you can’t because there may not be any stars and all your lives are gone.

You haven’t crashed just yet. Started this game on a whim early last year and found it quite fun, entertaining and even a little addictive. Since then the updates have been great, they’ve added extra competitions to participate in with exciting prizes. I often see mobile games like this try too hard to create something more interactive and current but it just ends up more irritating, but that’s not the case with GardenScapes. They’ve managed to keep the basic foundation of the game we love and ad fun new features. For a future update: the ability to ad someone as a friend: view their garden and participate in events with them making it more competitive rather than against a random person. Thank you for the excellent work, keep going !

Was The Best But Now..... I’ve been playing this game for years. I’m on level 3281 and I’ve spent a bit of money on this game too. I did stop playing for a while as things got too tedious. But I am back again. Just wanted to say I’ve never yet played any of those mini games that are shown in the advertising!? Where are they?? There are side quests, like at the moment I think you have to decorate a chalet. Let me just say I have yet to complete ANY of these extra rooms as the tasks just take too many stars or whatever point scoring is used for the game. Now I do actually like my garden. It is looking pretty good. Just wish there were more flowers of different types to put in. How about change up the colours and design of them a bit more 💐🌺🌸🌼🌻🌹🥀🥀🌈🎄🌲.

Thanks for saving me money. Hi. The levels in this game are way too hard, stupidly hard. I found myself buying stuff every few levels, almost unconsciously. The levels almost all require multiple boosters to pass or extra lives. The only way to get boosters is to win levels or decorate your garden. But that’s right you can’t decorate your garden without winning levels. Anyway for this reason I have disabled the ability to make in app purchases for all apps. I don’t mind paying for content but this game is ridiculous and is set up so that the only way to win is to spend. I have found it fun, up to the point it was frustrating and is now just boring. It’s a shame for you playrix because as I said I don’t mind spending some cash on games but your game design is just directed at making people spend. Well done you. Just wondering what level those who give positive feedback are on.

Very rewarding game. Highly recommend.. This is so far my favourite match-three game I’ve played and I prefer it above their other game HomeScapes and even all Candy Crush games too. It’s fun, the animation is beautiful and best of all it’s rewarding — you don’t have to spend your own money to play it or to keep moving up. The renovations you make to the garden from beating levels are so rewarding and beautiful that it just makes you want to keep playing just to see what’s next. There aren’t many choices for power ups and you can’t connect two power ups together to create a super explosive. However, I actually prefer it this way as it keeps things simple yet challenging. The game would lose its spark if they changed it to be similar to Candy Crush and other match-three games (they tried to do so on HomeScapes and in my opinion, it doesn’t work well). Overall this is one of my favourite games yet and I’ve been playing for about a year now I think.

frustrated!. I’ve enjoyed the game but as you get further into the game you need too many stars to do each function. I’m now past level 4100 and so only get 30 ish levels to do a week so once the competitions are done and you get 3 hours unlimited it is pointless as you only get a side game of open the chests, the levels of which are repeated, you don’t get stars and you can’t progress in the garden. Also recently getting extra decorations for xmas and Easter were not achievable because of the limited number of levels available in a week I think it’s time to move on as too frustrating now only having so few levels you can do in a week ☹️

Good and bad. First off I would like to say that this is an awesome game with a lot of good qualities. The art style and colours of the game are good and give it good flow, the characters and their back story are also very good and well throughout. I would have to say as a downfall for this game, some of the quests or missions in the game are just pointless and have nothing to do with designing and setting up your own garden. Things like helping a boy fix his helicopter or get his kite from the tree or even to help fix someone’s tire as they drive past are all pointless to the game and what it’s about, which is designing and creating your own garden. Not only that but some of those missions can take up to 3 stars, which could be better off being used on the garden. Also if I’m in one area I wold like to focus solely o. That are and not have to jump back and fix things or do things in other areas. But as I stated in the start of this review it is a great game and I really enjoy it. One other thing that I would like to see in game and I’m sure many other players would too, there needs to be some form of skip added to the mission so if you have been on them for more than 6 or so turns you have the chance to skip over that missions, or at least a feature to make the missions you get stuck on less hard. Thanks

Starts off well, doesn’t age well. The game started off great with lots of things to customise and design the garden but after a while useless little jobs would use up my stars that wouldn’t let me move onto the next task without completing. Many of these tasks require 2 to 3 stars which can be difficult to get if you’re stuck on a level. Another issue I have with this game is the levels are simple at the beginning with some hard and super hard levels thrown in randomly but as you progress the hard and super hard levels are more frequent than normal levels, making it difficult if you don’t have power ups. Many regular levels I have found to be nearly impossible to beat even with all the power ups and just becomes more frustrating than enjoyable and this has turned me off the game. If you’re looking for a game to pass time or a simple match-up game then I would recommend but if you’re looking for a more design aspect in a game I would suggest something else.

Soon to be ex loyal player. I absolutely hate the recent update! I have played this game for a long time now. I'm up to level 2150 or something. I have spent money on this game & whilst I don't like doing it, I didn't mind in order to beat a tough level or advance. Ok so here goes.... the recent update and changes are terrible! I hate the introduction of the currency to add decorations at the cost of real coin prizes! Plus hard levels used to reward 2 stars, now it's just a sucky one star and the silly cash! It's are enough to get stars. Coin rewards have all but ceased! I see this as greed from the game developers to get customers to buy coins. The gas cylinders are a ridiculous idea too! Wasting a life so easily?! I used to think the company and game developers were fair & how good and refreshing it was. However the above factors I have mentioned have almost COMPLETELY put me off the same, I'm ready to quit. PLEASE address these concerns developers. Really unhappy player.

Best 3-match game. I downloaded Gardenscapes when it had first came out and stopped playing due to the difficulty and resorted to Homescapes when Playrix had brought that out, however due to the difficulty of Homescapes thought I might give Gardenscapes a second chance and have not regret, the updates are fantastic. Passing levels is much easier and not as time consuming as other 3-match games. Also has an amazing captivating story-line 100% recommend to everyone - daily spins and weekend challenges are the best part of the whole game as it really engages you to compete against others and also gain more coins and bombs to pass levels! - currently completed the Christmas challenge and am excited to see what’s in store next!

Awsome game but tip. I love the game and have been playing it for a few years now, but I have a tip that may help your game in your ads you put things in that have nothing to do with the app, example you create little mini games that aren’t included in the actual app. People buy the app cause they want to play the little mini games you put on the ad and some may get mad when they download it and find out the app is completely different. So my tip is add the mini games you have in your adds to the app you don’t have to make the whole app about it but maybe as a fun little mini game section. Or just don’t put them in the add, still this app is really fun and I definitely recommend this app

LIARS. Ok, so I was really excited when I downloaded this app, but was very disappointed. First of all, you need to play this stupid match three in game to do all most EVERYTHING! And you only have about twenty five moves to do it, and it’s almost impossible to do it with only twenty five moves. And I kept on getting stuck on the same level for ages! And what they show in the add is mostly COMPLETELY different to the actual game! I got this game because I want to renovate the garden! I have had this game for a few years, and I have finished TWO sections of the whole game. I DO NOT recommend getting this or getting it for a young child under eight. This was a waste of time, and got really boring real quick. It’s kind of fun, and every time I go into the game, it bombarded me with notifications about these other in games! I used to be obsessed with it but got very annoyed when I couldn’t even pass the same level. If you’re willing to spend a lot of time on this app, then great. This is the game for you. But if you only want to play it every once in a while, don’t waste your time with this silly app.

Enjoyable game. Gardenscapes is enjoyable. You can play it with not too much or no outlay or a lot if you wish depending on your patience which I like, so I spend as little or as much as I like. Criticisms: I feel like as you get further along in the game some levels are very similar if not the same as others. Also there is some inconsistency in the levels and how hard they are. Some very hard levels I've found super easy and then at other times I've been struggling to finish a normal level. I wish there was more choice in decorative items but sometimes you are forced to pick between three ugly options quite frequently to deck out the area of the garden you are in. The bonus ones you can buy with money you earnt from levels are sometimes better but majority aren't and are only worth the prize of purchasing the complete set if you can be bothered, which I can't really. There aren't any advertisements in this game which is great and I really like the team challenges, the pets and seeing my garden unfold as I go. I've been playing for a couple of years now and will continue to play as there is a lot to enjoy about the game.

Cats. Hey look, I think the game is really fun. But the fact that you thought you should buy a puppy really made me sad. Like sure, nothing wrong with that! But the fact that the lady had gave you a great deal for a cat and you declined it made me sad. I wanted a CAT! You know there are CRAZY cat lovers like me in the world? Some even play this game! Also, you made cats look bad. In Austin’s “thought” of the cat scratching a tree was WRONG! If a cat needed to a scratch a tree, this would be too sharpen their claws and that would protect you from even more trespassers!!! The cat would learn to grow and love you and you’d feel happy! But no? You make dogs better for a garden just because there active? They aren’t as active as you think! And also, cats are also very good at being active. People just think their lazy because they sleep. SLEEP? Sleep just makes a human/animal more active! I’m very disappointed you think of cats like a useless, unworthy creature. I haven’t got very far into the game, but I’m deleting it JUST BECAUSE OF THIS!

Not a happy player 😔 Level 3131. I have been playing this game forever now and usually one of the top 3 players on the leader board, I play it so much especially during the challenges. However like most of the players I am getting increasingly frustrated at how I enjoyable this game is becoming the levels are ridiculously hard to win some taking over 30+ attempts and powers to get through them just to earn one star then when all stars are earned I can’t even choose the design of the item that I am building which was the whole joy of the game originally 80% of the challenges are unpersonalised now and to top that off every task requires 3-4 stars and has to take two to three attempts so annoying. Another annoying thing is I am so up to date I always have to complete the chest challenges guys you need to be faster with the updates if you want to keep my interest. I yes to absolutely love this game now I often choose not to even open the app and stick to my favs like Disney Magic Kingdoms and Candy Crush to avoid disappointment!!

Love but needs improvements. I would give 5 stars because I absolutely love this game. Can’t really fault much apart from when you are granted with boosters and they put them in the worse spots and you end up losing all your lives because of it. I ABSOLUTELY HATE THE PINK CHALLENGE LEVELS!!! I’ll be on a roll and have all these boosters in my chest and without a doubt 9/10 will lose to these challenge levels and I think they’ve done it on purpose to make you purchase boosters because they’re almost impossible to pass!! I really wish they would remove them. If they did I’d probably give 5 stars. I wish we had the option on when we can use the selected boosters also, they always placed wherever at the start of a level. I wish we could select when we could use them, like if we have 5/20 moves left.

**false advertising **. Whilst the game can be enjoyable to play as a 3 match, it is definitely NOT what you get when you see the advert. You see a guy trying to escape various dangers and think that looks like fun so you download it, only to discover that is not like that at all. It's just your typical 3 match game which there a millions of available. I'm at a level of of over 2700 and never seen a special event or change to include the ’escape’ sequences that are advertised. So if that is what you wanted the game for, don't bother, this game is not what is advertised. If you after another 3 match game, then you'll be satisfied. It IS a decent game in that category at least. I honestly don't know how developers get away with this type of dishonesty. Be warned consumers FALSE ADVERTISING.

Disappointed 😞😕. It’s an overall average game. The concept of the game is pretty underwhelming. The reasons that I was disappointed is because 1. There are tons of ads 2. It’s nothing like the ads for this game suggest. By watching the ad, the reason why I got this game was because it looked fun and independent, so I thought it would be a lot more free than it actually was when I got the game. It pretty much tells you everything that you have to do. 3. You have to play these little games to get money. You use the money to buy things so you can decorate your garden (but again they tell you how to decorate it). It would help if we actually started with coins because we have to make lots of money otherwise. Overall the game was 3 stars from me because some people might think I’m being harsh but seriously I was very disappointed because I was getting excited about the game. I hope you consider looking at this and fixing all of these things. Thanks

Take a leaf. I don't mind this game but options are very limited. 1 level took me 50+ tried and 6 days to pass. I was over it. I'll still play it but when people ask about games I tell them not to bother with this one. Disney kingdoms is what I tell them to play. Levelling up characters gives gems that unlock things so the game makes it possible to progress. But this game. No options. You either get lucky in the daily spin or spend real money. After completing a hard level that rewards with 2 stars, the next few that follow get hard again. They are like ordinary levels but impossible to pass and of course you can't use the power ups cause u used all those trying to pass the super hard level just before. I get it shouldn't be easy. But this game shouldn't be about the puzzles. It should be about building the garden. 1 star because I think even the developers missed the point with this game. Fix it and I'll happily change my rating.

Crash Garden. What has happened? Just recently the game just keeps crashing and always at that critical point when you are just about to complete the level or you have crashes before the level completed is recognised!! Then you lose your boosters and have to play the level again from scratch! Really frustrating and I have just about given up on this game. This never happened previously. Please, please fix. It’s a great game and I want to keep playing. The graphics are great, the levels challenging and I love decorating the gardens. I get excited to find out what is next that you can cash in your stars for. Would definitely recommend this game, but please fix the bugs. Make it a 5 star rating again.

Good game, except…... The advertising or forced pop up boxes are really getting out of hand now guys and need to be cleaned up. I logged in for the first time in a while (this was still an issue when I stopped) and was given 15 minutes of free lives and a power up, for my own curiosity I decided to time from the point of receiving this power up until I was able to actually able to enter a game and make use of them. Skipping all text and cutscenes as fast as possible and( not reading a single thing ) the time left on my power was 12:17 so that’s nearly a full 3 minutes of adverts almost every login. For those that read the event or story or advertising on login probably will get maybe one game out of the powers. Great game, but please tidy up before the clutter gets even worse or the players decline ( my groups already had everyone leave ) Thanks for such a great game otherwise

Positives and improvement suggestions. I’m on level 962 Summary: Overall the game is great but some things could be changed to make it more enjoyable to play long term. Positives: Played this game for quite a while now - I don’t spend money on it to try challenge myself. I enjoy building my garden and picking from the different decorations. Love the new decoration themes. Game doesn’t crash (iPhone8), very smooth graphics. Suggestions: Would love the game so much more if each task was only decoration or pet related. Don’t like the irrelevant tasks like “help kid find kite” that takes up 4 stars. As you go along there are too many tasks to each section, I get bored of one section after the first 30 tasks, been stuck on the island diving one for a while (I’m only 77% into the 7th section at level 962). Would also love if hard levels gave 2 stars and really hard levels gave 3 stars. Would be good if you were rewarded with more green cash than what you get now ($20-$40 max reward and an item can cost $600-$2600) and no other way to get them than beating levels. Also not loving the new timer bombs, countdown shouldn’t start for frozen ones till the ice is broken- butterflies are challenging enough.

Not a happy camper!!!. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE this game. I am upto level 2959. But what really annoys me and not makes me want to play it, I have to wait a fair few days each time just for new levels to me added onto the game, so I’m stuck with the stupid treasure chest finding the keys which doesn’t even give stars and it SHOULD. Also, when using stars to renovate the garden, it’s making me use 4/5 stars some things need 2 or 3 as well which means 8+ stars gone in one go!!! And not only that using so many stars and the PERCENTAGE that reaches to the end of the day is REDICULOUS- for example, I use 5 stars, and the percentage bar goes up 3-5 percent and that’s BEYOND A JOKE!!! spending so much money all the time on this game because I love it, yet everything is just stingy now. Go through big chunks of stars at a time only to get a low percentage on the percentage bar, and trying to pass so many levels just to get a big amount of stars, only for that big amount of stars to be gone by doing only very few things in the garden! I think that needs to be fixed. Start rewarding the loyal paying customers with more stars and rewards, because it’s beyond a joke and I’m thinking about deleting the game because of all that!!

Flat out annoying. I am regretting installing this app. It seems like fun but the butler character is slightly annoying. Note to designers: Butlers don't do gardening. You have actually created a handyman/caretaker, not a butler. The games are mostly extremely tough. Then you end up stuck in an endless loop of trying to complete a mini game for points, losing all your lives, getting asked for money and then having to wait ages to play again. Don't the designers realise that the frustration ruins the serene and fun atmosphere of the main game? Not to mention the fact that you need to use unlimited lives immediately, no matter what commitments you might have in your life. They aren't interested in feedback or fixing ongoing issues in any meaningful way. Don't even bother. P.s. The spinning award wheel is clearly rigged to deliver pathetic prizes. Watch out - if you do win the ‘jackpot’ prize, it may even magically disappear.

Used to be BETTER. I’ve been playing this game for maybe 2 yrs now and it can be a lot of fun but increasingly it’s becoming tedious. You get stuck on levels for days unless you stump out actual cash to buy your way through buy buying extra lives or boosters - but it’s pointless because the creators have made it so hard now you will likely get stuck again in one or two levels and feel justifiably ripped off for bothering to spend money. I refuse to spend now and challenge myself to beat levels which I do. But as I said it used to be more fun, you could get on a winning streak and game creators rewarded good play more. Now they have become more stingy and taken away booster rewards! Recently on their 6th birthday they literally celebrated by giving players just an Avatar as a reward!! They coped so much flak that a couple days later they gave a couple boosters out…lame. Think twice before you play

A game only wants you to pay. The game became less and less fair during each update. For examples in level 848 you’re only gets 20 moves to remove35 pink flowers and 80 water drops, the flower port to generate flowers need three matches near the port to generate every four flowers, and the flower port are surrounded by icy pieces which will again need to be matched two times to remove the ice, and all 80 water drops are in these pieces covered by ice. Now tell me how can you play without Paying money to get coins and the boosters, since for each level you win you only get around 50 to 80 coins but for the first five extra step you need to pay 900 and second five extra take 1200. Moreover, the game support team is a mess. Questions never get an answer from human being. Their tips are useless and the only thing the game team will suggest you to do is to see tips.

Fun and free. This is my first try of a matching up game and so far I'm enjoying it. As I've made my way through the levels I've occasionally got stuck a while on one game without enough stars or spades to save me if I get close, but on the whole I find it paces well, and having the extra challenges ( like training the dog) to reward me with extra stars, and as an option to playing the main game, adds to its interest. Plus, like it's twin, Homescapes, I'm enjoying the gradual reveal of the garden as we renovate it (Austin and his friends and I) so that adds another dimension to the play. The downside is that as some levels are so hard that I just don’t get them out time after time, even using up my boosters and spending 900coins for 5 extra turns, I sometimes get so discouraged I leave the game for weeks. But on my return I’m often welcomed by a gift of free boosters which might be enough to get me past the difficult level, so that keeps me coming back.

I like it but my progress got deleted. I like this app and have been working on it a lot and just so you know I did sign into Facebook so it would save my progress but then one day it showed the start of the game I didn’t think much of it because whenever my wifi is bad stuff like that happens so I usually turn my phone off fully and it would be normal and when it didn’t fix after that I just left it for the day but it’s still not back I have signed in and out multiple times and also deleted it and downloaded it. I WONT MY PROGRESS BACK!!!!!😡plss respond because I won’t my my level back I have played this for a long time now and so have my family and it hasn’t done this to anyone of us I do love this game but I don’t won’t to start from the scratch. 😢😭I could literally cry right now lol but still if it wasn’t for this it would be 5 stars from me

Is it really worth it?. I’ve downloaded, deleted and re-downloaded this games more times than I can even remember. And every time I re-download it I remember why I deleted it in the first place. You’re constantly playing the levels in order to get stars, but the stars get used up on the stupidest things that don’t even involve the garden. (i.e. getting a dog, calling someone etc.) and then there are times where you’ll use a star, and then something will happen where a part of the garden you’ve already fixed gets ruined, and another star needs to be wasted to fix something you’ve already fixed before. It feel like the game hardly focuses on actually fixing up the garden, but instead on all of the other little features of the game. And then there’s the actual game play, puzzles can be ridiculous sometimes. Boosters will be placed in a position that ruins the possibility to make other bombs. They will also sometimes be placed right in the middle of the only useful fruits which usually results in losing moves and ultimately loosing the whole level. While the game can be good, it can also become incredibly tedious.

Challenging, but rewarding. I have played Gardenscapes for around a year, and I’m on level 673. This was the first match 3 game I had ever played, so it was really hard starting off playing, as I was progressing really slowly. It’s definitely not to say levels have got easier, in fact. after level 600, it feels as if they get sooooo much harder, but I’ve learnt if you play a level again and again, you should be able to finally succeed. I love the storyline and decorating elements of the game, they were very well done. If you have played Homescapes, and are looking to play Gardenscapes, I would recommend it, as G.S is noticeably easier than H.S in my opinion. There are a few things that could be improved though. It would be nice if you could visit other peoples gardens, with a similar mechanism to Township. Maybe you could send a few people a present every day! That would be amazing. Also, would it be possible to add a skip level button? There are so many times I’ve been stuck on a level for weeks, until it becomes so boring to play, resulting in me not playing for weeks. Anyway, thanks for reading my rant, and overall great game Playrix! 🌱🌳

Decent game but garbage physics. I’m up to level 2442 and have been playing since March 2017. Enjoyable when bored, and the continuous events make it easier to complete levels. But when there are multiple levels that have been beaten in a row, an easy looking level can’t be complete and the event bonuses are lost, even when trying to beat the levels using extra power ups on top of those bonuses. The physics in this game have become so much more worse since the 1000’s, where some pieces move in different directions to avoid bombs, or where lemonades do not follow the path towards the bottom and instead allowing other pieces to fall down. The honey is the most irritating part of the game, as breaking the jars of honey does not count towards the match beside the honey itself, and any time there is a bomb or power up beside the honey, the next move it is instantly covered over. This should not be the case and it should be randomised. The honey also travels through corners of barriers, which is kind of unfair as I can’t switch through barriers, but the honey is allowed to travel through the corners with ease. Overall a good game but some things with it really need to be rewritten, as it just makes the game more unenjoyable when you’re stuck on a level that you’ve tried 30 times already.

Just another IOS game designed to force you to buy in game credits. This game as well as its sister app Homescapes seem to offer the same gameplay and allow you to play up-to a certain level for free then the puzzles become so hard you can’t proceed without spending real money on in game upgrades to continue which is a real shame because up until that point I was enjoying both games. I understand developers need to get paid but I will not be bullied into paying. If I enjoy playing a game & it allows for unlimited functionable free play then I have spent hundreds of dollars buying in game upgrades. I feel that’s my duty as a customer who enjoys playing the game the developer has spent hours on hours developing and producing. But enough already on the multitude of iOS and other platforms games that try to force me into paying I refuse. If you want my money make a great that’s free to play forever and entice me into upgrades that enhance my enjoyment of the game.

Ripped off on Golden Ticket purchase!!. I enjoy playing this game and have done for a few years now. I always purchase the golden ticket for 8 lives and the extra fireworks as they come in handy. This time I have NOT received my 8 lives after making the purchase of the golden ticket. I've been told I can't get a refund from Playrix as they only provided half a service I paid full price for. Apparently I've been randomly selected to be part of their test group which I wasn’t told or asked to participate in (I chased up Playrix customer service to ask about no 8 lives only 5). I was told the Dev team will take my feedback and “will be giving it some thought” (wanting my 8 lives I paid for??) the Dev team need to think about this. They won’t remove me and “thank me for my loyalty and understanding”. Here’s some feedback to “definitely” think about... Let your paying customers know you aren’t providing a service they’ll pay for. Playrix rip you off and give you a copy and paste BS excuse and close the conversations! They don't care that they take your money and give you a F-all for the inconvenience from their side! A**holes! Put some thought into that!

Fantastic until you get to higher levels. I have played this game for about a year now, and can say that I have absolutely enjoyed and loved it. It has so much going on as far as competitions, seasons, makeovers and so much more. I have played a lot of hours on this game, as my night shift hours allow a lot of quiet and downtime, and I have also allocated this game a quite healthy budget. However, unfortunately and with regret, I have now removed Gardenscapes and have discontinued playing it, and the reason for this is that there is just no way I can continue to justify the budget I choose to spend just to be able to play it. It has become a pay to play game for me at level 9000+. Each level is so difficult that I can spend a couple of days trying to beat a level, or give in and pay for extra lives to do it. And quite often paying for one extra set of lives is not enough to beat a level. The game developers have recently removed some awards for beating bonus levels, such as bombs, which when you rely on these to help complete a level, makes the game even more difficult at level 9000+. Combine this with the fact that at 9000+ you get NO value out of the season tickets and rewards due to how difficult each level has become, which come at a cost to purchase, and the game for me lost its enjoyability and became more frustrating and just bad value for money. Such a shame, because it really is a very clever and was a an extremely enjoyable game.

Good game but expensive in the end.. First off, good game. Good graphics, good storyline. But. You need to throw _lots_ of in-app purchases if you want to go far in the levels and story. Quite a lot of the tasks requires lots of stars to complete, and in 2 parts as well. Each parts requires 3-4 stars to complete. So you need to complete lots and lots of level to move a single task to then move the storyline along. And when it comes to hard or super hard levels, you almost always likely to NEED to use multiple power-ups PLUS extra moves. Not many freebies at all in the game, and since you requires so many stars to complete every tasks, you’ll use up your freebies power ups and coins very quickly. Which means to then acquire those additional power ups and extra moves to progress the storyline, you need to make an in-app purchases that can be very very expensive (you need lots of them). So. Good game. Good graphics. Good storyline. But be ready to throw lots of $$$$ if you really want to enjoy it. If you don’t want or don’t have those extra $$$$ to throw at the game, you better off playing something else.

Good and Bad. Gardenscapes is an amazing game. It is easy to play in your spare time and is very fun. But, it can sometimes be very annoying. You have to win levels to get stars and use the stars to do task. Some of the task have nothing to do with your garden. For example, welcoming guests, helping kids and calling people. Some times I spend money to win levels just for those things that will not help me progress in the game. You are also forced to update the game. If you don’t update it to the latest version you cannot play. And after updating you have wait for the game to load. But I still love it and have fun playing it. This is just my opinion but others may enjoy playing this game. :)

Losing it’s charm. When I first downloaded the game, I thought it was good because it makes you think and win your levels. As I reached the thousand level it just became annoying not because you cannot a win a level but because they won’t let you win it unless you have exhausted your coins and power ups. The worst thing that has happened is they have added betting to encourage children into gambling. So I don’t think it deserves any stars at all. The one star is only because it was good in the first few hundred levels. Also it is a misleading advertisement to download the game. After downloading I realized that they are mini games that come only once in a blue moon for you to play. There’s also a lot of cheating in this game to make you buy more coins. It’s designed to not let you win. Looks like greed is taking over the developer. But it’s not worth it... you’ll get more negative reviews and lose your business. The 1304 level shows the creator of the app has gone all nuts giving only 9 moves to finish the level. Wonder if he himself could finish it off!

Gardenscapes. Best game ever! I’ve been playing forever and am totally addicted. Nana of three Still playing still loving it at 72 years of age. Great to turn to in this time of Lock Down It helped get me through Lock Down and is definitely up there as one of my three favourite games Still my favourite game and I’m heading for 73 years of age Love it love it and it is very ge erous with prizes I think I have come to the conclusion that this is my favourite game Another year has flown by and with Covid lockdown this game has helped fill in all my free time and I still love it. Best game ever i have been playing for an hour and am on a winning streak i think this is one of the games most generous with the prizes. Still very happy and impressed with this game. What would I do without this game to return to everyday 😊I’ve decided this is DEFINITELY my favourite game What more can I say …..still playing You guessed it….there is nothing more I can say except that it is the one game I never tire of.❤️Back again..just celebrated my 74th birthday and still going strong. I would love to replay it over from the very start 🌻🌻 Just trying to recover from Covid and still depending on Gardenscapes to keep me amused 🌷🌷I was playing Gardenscapes on 2 devices and even when I deleted it from one it took two days to get my favourite game back

Super addictive. I love Gardenscapes (I’m on level 450) and it’s so fun to play and I love how it has a purpose (to decorate your garden) instead of just pointless levels like other games have. The graphics and detail and all the thought that goes into each level, each task you have to complete, and even a social media for the characters, is amazing! I also love all the decor you can add for each area with the themes, but one thing I recommend is receiving the cash (for the decor) more frequently because I get barely any and then can’t buy the decor for each area. I also think there should be a way to skip a level or that hearts should reset faster because if you’re stuck on a level it can be really annoying if you just keep using all your hearts and then having to wait 30 mins for a new try. Overall I love the game and think it’s super addictive and fun to play in your spare time.

Getting less and less fair.. I have finished all the current levels, so each week I compete in the golden cup. That’s all well and good but 9 times out of 10 that doesn’t make me eligible to compete in the orangery flower etc where you have the opportunity to win unlimited lives. Also while this current long competition is going on each time you request lives it shows everyone who has purchased the golden ticket after you request lives so people have to know to scroll to see if people are requesting lives. This went from being a game where the prizes were really fair and often to a game where you feel forced to spend real money. I obviously love the game but you are slowly losing me.

Used to love, has gotten worse with each update. Don’t get me wrong, this app definitely has positives. I’ve been playing for well over a year and have enjoyed it during that time. In saying that, with each update the game seems to have gotten less fair. First example, the competitions are great- with each consecutive level you beat, you get a booster. However, I’ve noticed since the last update, the game will put the booster into a spot that screws you up for that level. Eg- some hard levels start with the fruit in such a way that you can make a booster first go. The game will plonk your prize booster right in the middle so you can’t make the one the level needs you to to win from the start. This makes the boosters not just unhelpful, but loses your lives. I also wish you could properly skip the dialogue and cutscenes. As an older player, the storylines get a bit repetitive and some go for ages. You can skip but it doesn’t skip a lot. I used to spend money on this app but refuse to anymore. You can tell that the game has become rigged, easy levels can take 30 plus goes to complete, and then you’ll all of a sudden get all these amazing matches and finish with 15 moves left. It gets tiresome and has me wanting to delete the app, even after all this time. Hopefully the developers take things on board. Also please don’t advise me to view tips like you have other players. I’m well versed with the rules.

Lost all progress and still came back. I was up to level 1700+ and over a year of gameplay in when my phone had serious problems and I had no choice but to factory reset... needless to say, all of my progress for the game was lost! I tried Homescapes, not wanting to repeat the same content, but after like 10 levels I just found it was just not the same, so I came back - now level 1000+ and counting! Super addictive game. Some weeks I find myself playing it every day. They constantly update the content, so you never get bored. They recently introduced a “decor catalogue” and it just adds a different dimension to the garden redecoration, I love it.

Enjoyable game but…. I have enjoyed this game and the challenges, I don’t really follow the storyline, I just enjoy the puzzles. But like so many other games these days, the puzzles have an automatic hint, which I find extremely annoying. I know these hints aren’t necessarily the best move and I rarely follow them, but they are really annoying when you are trying to plan a move and the hint is constantly flashing, breaking your concentration. I am a bit old school and don’t understand why people want to be given the answer straight away, where is the challenge? Can you not build in an option as many other games have, of turning off the hints? It would make the game much more enjoyable. So because of this, I can only give this game 3 stars and I will delete it for now. If the hint function is amended in the future I will definitely be back because I do enjoy it.

Good game but it has a few issues. I have been playing Gardenscapes for a few months, I’m on level 603, and I really like the game. I think that it’s really cool how there are always competitions going on. There are also some problems. First of all, I play this game on my iPad, and it keeps kicking me out every five minutes. It doesn’t take away my stars or anything, but it’s really annoying and makes me lose time, which drives me crazy because I don’t have much time to play. Also, most of the goals in the extra stuff are impossible. I mean, how are you supposed get like 1000 of those tokens in only 30 days?! It’s impossible, at least for me, I have never finished one of those seasons. And with the extra renovations, eg the trivia club, you also only have about ten days to get about 4000 tokens, and you only get about 40 tokens per level. It is more for harder levels but still. So please fix the glitches, particularly the kicking out. But overall good game.

Confused. The ads show a guy trapped in some way that you must use logic to free. But when you get the app it’s a stupid match three game. Very not cool. 😖

Pretty Fun. Can be a fun game but some levels are ridiculous to pass and there should be more boosts available.

The worst app ever. It is nothing like the add and just an other candy crush knock off I hate this game it really sucks like really do not download

Tiring. I use to enjoy the game but I’m forced to do silly tasks instead of finishing the garden so I’m losing interest.

no way. fun 1 days . after that , if you buy nothing . you stuck and it become boring . buy nothing . it not worth it

Pathetic. The game has nothing to do with the ads plus the appreciation score has nothing to do with the reviews. EVERYBODY SHOULD READ ALL THE REVIEWS.

Highly Addictive. If you have important things to do I don’t recommend this app! Lots of fun and good way to make time fly! Don’t forget to join a team! Very helpful when you run out of lives.

Gardenscapes. Was enjoyable, but with latest update you can only play with wifi. Went from playing 3 or 4 times a day and now I can't be bothered.

J’adore ce jeu. Ce jeu est vraiment bien. Facile d’y jouer sans investir le moindre $. Le jeu en soit est amusant/relaxant et le défi vraiment cool. Un peu à la sims!

False advertising. you don’t get to do any of the cool puzzle things that are in the ads the game is boring it’s sucks. poop in a bucket

Challenging...but worth it. I see a lot of people complaining of the difficulty of this game...clearly they have never played candy crush! It’s challenging but very doable 😉

Where’s the real game?. I seen an ad for this puzzle solving game but it’s not what I downloaded 🙄🙄🙄🙄

Misleading ads. The ads don’t describe the game. If you want it to stop everyone has to give them a one star rating every time the ads come up. That will drop them.

FALSE ADVERTISING. Downloaded this game after watching a ad and found it nothing like what was being depicted in said are frauds and should be sued for false advertising!!!! I am contacting the Canadian Ad Standard Counsel to have your misleading ads blocked on Canadian IPNs. SHAME ON YOU!!! PATHETIC!!!

Completely trash.. Downloaded this cause of an add and it was false advertisement

Not at all like the ad. The ad of being able to chose your outcome is no where in this game. It’s like a candy crush game. Very disappointed.

Misleading. If it was like the ad I would totally give it 5 stars but it is not. So don’t waste your time downloading this.

Ad isn’t real. The ad completely lies about the game but why would the developers care they still make money

Garden Scape. Great game!

Fake game. All advertisement videos are about making decisions and selecting the best object for that moment. However, the actual game is similar to candy crush with a few extra tasks on the side. Nothing like advertised!!!

Nothing like add. Add is for helping a guy escape water BUT the game is actually a jewel match game.

Not Bad. I enjoy playing the game however the fact that you can only get friends though Facebook is quite annoying. Only one friend is playing it, so I can't request lives. It also costs quite a bit of $ as many of the levels I have had to buy coins to keep playing after spending days trying to complete certain levels.

Absolute Scam. I am completely disappointed and mad with GardenScapes, the advertisements are absolutely misleading and are completely different from the actual game. I thought I was getting a fun looking game where you free people in a kind of puzzle, when in reality it’s just a stupid ‘candy crush’ like game. I spent about 5 hours playing the dumb game trying to get to the game part seen in the ad, until I realized it doesn’t exist... This is a complete violation of deceptive practices and I feel used, and infringed by the makers of this game. To put it simply, GardenScapes is committing a fraud: false advertising. I feel that a lawsuit could even be risen against this crime that they have committed. Please Gardenscapes, stop advertising/scamming consumers with false, misleading, wrong information.

Enough with the clickbait ads.. This company’s ads are totally fake and have nothing to do with the game. This practice is dishonest, unethical and should be illegal. I’ll voice my protest by keeping my money, instead of giving it to a sleazy, lying company like Playrix. Disgusting.

Bait fraud. I downloaded this because I saw an ad while playing another game. It looked interesting, but what I downloaded is definitely NOT the game I saw advertised. I will not be playing this game, I am feeling duped.

Fake Game. I’ve seen ads for this game just about everywhere. These ads have nothing to do with the game at all and are completely false. This game is not what it is being advertised to be.

Not like adds this game is GOOF!. This game makes no sense the app adds show you problem solving to get out of situations but when you down load it all you do is design a mansion and have to match things like it candy crush. Can someone explain this?

Not what’s advertised. I downloaded this game because of the ads. Turns out this game is nothing like the ads.. silly me for thinking you would advertise your actual product and not something fake!

Addictive. I thoroughly enjoy this game, I love that I don’t get bored because I want to finish it (2300+ levels later no end in sight). I don’t like that the new area re-loads, I wish you could just scroll into the new area. I’m also not a fan of how many stars it takes to do smaller tasks.

Fake ads. Stop making ads that have NOTHING to do with the actual game

Don’t do it!. This is nothing like the ad! It’s not different levels of saving someone it’s just another stupid jewel candy crush matching game. Biggest waste of time to even download it!

This game sucks.. I like the concept of the game but hate the fact that the game decides when you pass the levels. No point in even trying to be strategic. It’s frustrating to spend more two days on the same level.

Not the game I was shown in the ad. 1 week and 121 levels in, and still no sign of the logic puzzles shown in the ad. Nice bait and switch, Playrix. Your dishonesty is pathetic... and now removed from my device.

Really not like the ad. Don’t be fooled. The game as nothing to do with the ad.

Game Falsely Advertised !!!. Game ad shows a pin style removal puzzle game. Totally not what game is about. It is a match 3 type game. I would give 0 stars if I could! Come on Devs, if you have to advertise a different style of game than you are offering, maybe you should redesign your game concept if its that weak!!

Not like the add. The add was you we’re supposed to help the 2 people survive. But it’s just a stupid jewel game. If you like it good for you. But I wanted it to be like the add

Meh. This is not the game they show you in the ads. When does that occur? The levels are pretty hard to beat and some improvements require a ridiculous amount of stars.

Garden scapes. Awful!!!!!!

FIX YOUR GLITCH …. Extremely disappointed in your customer service, which consists of absolutely no humans or promised emails. Waiting 2 weeks for reply for you guys to fix your glitch. Never again will i spend another dime on your game.

Deceptive Practices. Nothing like the ad. Copies ads from popular games. The jewel game itself gets to a point where you can’t advance without spending money. Basically a poorly designed game where the designers don’t know how to make money so they resort to deceptive advertising.

Stopped Playing Frequently. I am 300+ level and find the game repetitive and frustrating be cause I get stuck on levels far too long so I don't play very often now.

Great Game. Loads of fun but very frustrating at times when it takes so long to complete a level

Grrr. Beautifully designed artwork, very pretty and enjoyable to some degree..... But it is VERY frustrating to use stars (which are way too hard to earn!) for silly stuff like phone calls, or to use 20+ stars to complete a fountain or decorate the yard (it would be nice to have more choice on the work to be done or not, and that the star cost is less ). Maybe earn 2+ stars for hard levels and more coins for each completed level. It's clear you want your users to spend money, understandably, but making it more fun for us so we don't give up and uninstall the game is also to your advantage. Thanks

It’s not a logic game as advertised. Not as advertised. Don’t bother downloading If you got lured here thinking you have to pull pins to save lambs. It’s not this game. This franchise misleads you into thinking you’re getting a certain game. It’s misleading, false advertising whatever you want to call it. Waste of my time.

Misleading. The ads are not what the game actually is. False advertising and disappointing. I want to play the game it’s pretending to be in advertisements!

False Advertising. Not at all like the advertising. Why do you have false advertising.

Bad. It’s nothing like the add and I feel very ripped off! The add said you got to fix stuff and try to chose the right stuff but that’s not at all what the game is like! I don’t like this game!

Do not download. The reviews are fake, the ads for these chain of games are completely misleading and do not represent the game play at all. It’s like 1% of the game, at best. It’s a huge money sink to get there too. Find a nice puzzle game from a reputable company. This is a scam.

Horrible Ads. The ads for this game are terrible, showing a mother and child on the brink of death. The game is nothing like the ads whatsoever, and I don’t understand why this company would want to advertise a game that might actually be fun with ads portraying such horrific scenes. Not only that, but ads that are not even relevant to the gameplay itself! The game follows the usual greedy, predatory pay to win scheme that’s just going to frustrate ftp players. It’s not worth your time. All I’m saying is, if we want the gaming industry to change, we can’t keep giving them money when they make bad games.

False advertising. Very disappointing

WolfePup63. OK as I have read by most all players.....impossible to win and keep your cash flow where you don’t eventually run out and are forced to use real money to buy more coins to keep playing. All games are rigged to loose unless you use real cash to buy power ups. Eventually however, it is inevitable you will need more real cash to continue playing. Two games come up that literally drain your cash flow if you go on to finish that level. I have spent as much as $10,000 in coin just to keep my prize power ups for each level. The extra bucks you earn are toward different decorations you can purchase along the way. The decorations at the Water level are now $8000 game bucks to win a gazebo!!!!! Absolutely ridiculous and the prices just keep getting higher and higher no matter what level you play. I run out of levels to bust and do a continual loop of the exact same games and win only $320 game bucks every 15 levels! At that rate you have to win literally 800 levels just to get one STUPID decoration!!!!!!! PLAY RIX is extremely greedy and the other game I use to play was Township again, a HUGE amount of real cash to advance in the game any significant amount

Overall a fun game. This game is quite addicting really. I've spent several hours on this game. I like that you're working towards progression on your garden, so it feels like a reward for your work. Most levels do have a strategy to it. It just might take a little bit to figure out. Yes, you can spend real money on more coins, lives, and boosters, but at level 740, I haven’t had to do that. That doesn't mean that I haven't been tempted to do that, though. The only thing I'd really change is to either increase the amount of coins you get as reward, lower the number of stars required to perform the next task in your garden, or lower the time between lives recharging. It does get frustrating to have to try the same level many, many times over multiple days just to for instance, be able to call Colin to fix the pier just so that he can turn around and tell you, "No I have to fix the stairs, but that requires more stars for me to do that and then even more stars for me to do what you called me out here for to begin with." I digress though, as it is just a game, and a great time-waster. I'd just tweak the rewards system a little bit.

Disappointed. This is a fun game….addictive actually. Not the best use of my time if I’m honest with myself. I was very much enjoying building my garden and following the storyline along the way. I liked the little historic elements added in and appreciated the options to pick my favorite flowers, lawns, fountains, benches, lighting etc. However, my biggest gripe and frustration with this game is that it’s deliberately designed to force you into purchasing coins so you can continue to play. Im bankrupting myself just trying to play this game. I also hated the fact that I could earn only one star per game played that could then be used to improve upon my garden. There ought to be better/easier ways to earn more stars at a time. The mini games were also fun and I would suggest more be included. However the developer seriously needs to make these games affordable for people. This is entertainment. It shouldn’t be stressful and frustrating knowing you are spending $$ that would be better spent on bills and groceries and things you can enjoy in the long term. I deleted this game because it became a hole my $$ was disappearing into. Gamers beware!

No longer free.... Today my game updated to the Halloween special. Of all the sudden you can not continue playing your 5 lives for free. The game forces you to either buy the golden ticket for $4.99 or you can’t even continue playing your 5 free lives. I used to enjoy this game and have spent money on it but for them to suddenly want you to spend money or you can’t play the 5 free lives anymore it’s just plain rude. Plenty of other games out there. Also I tried contacting support and send pictures of what I mean to see if it’s just a glitch but nothing. All I get is an automated message explaining how to upgrade my phone, (which I have done!) or how to upgrade the game, (which I also have done!) or how to save my progress to Facebook, which I won’t do because Im not a Facebook user. So far nobody has gotten in touch with me. Oh well, good riddance! The other funny fact is that the most recent reviews of this game are awful but the newcomer won’t know it because the only reviews you see up front are the good ones. But pay attention, these are two years old! I’ve had this game since its beginnings almost and it used to be ok. Customer service was on point. Now is crap. They have gotten greedy and don’t cater to the average player anymore.

Something’s Wrong !. Recently I have lost several rewards in separate instances where I had won consecutive games. In fact several games and the rewards that I had built up for winning consecutive games and those rewards suddenly vanished when I didn’t play the game right away. It seems to be punishment because I was waiting to spend to the wheel after 12:00 o’clock. I had been getting two free spends a day. Here lately I haven’t been getting them so I found that disappointing, couple with the fact that they took away the rewards that I had earned for winning consecutive games. It made me feel like I was being urged to spend more money and buy boosters to keep playing and winning when I know that I needed additional resources especially on the hard levels. I tried to bide my time and be patient and do other things and come back for the game when I would be eligible for additional boosters from spinning the wheel but when I did that I found that I lost the consecutive win rewards that I had gained from winning consecutive games. That’s wrong. If that continues to happen I’ll stop playing this game because it’s just trying to get my money. Don’t change the game rules and expect me not to notice and call you out for reneging.

Mostly enjoy. I like this game and I’m hoping someone listens to what makes it average to me. At the beginning, you move through the levels pretty fast. But, as soon as you are on a roll and level up to start the game with all of the explosives, you will lose so you either spend money to win or lose and lose all the explosives you’ve earned to start the game. Then along will come a super hard level. You can play for days. I come in, play my five lives and don’t come close to winning. I wait several days and then Austin will say something like maybe today you’ll have some magic or today will be a winner. Or I’ll get an email suggesting it will be a good day and when I play, it’s like the game plays itself. Bombs are going off everywhere. If the goal is to get me off the game for a week, they are succeeding. I’ll quit for awhile, come back and get through that level and a day or two later I’m stuck again. I’m just about ready to move on completely but my garden is beautiful. Also, I see ads for this game on other sites where you have to pick one of three objects to continue or lose. Pick a sun hat or a tent or a fire.... this game doesn’t so any of those things.

New update= battery drain. Update: ended up uninstalling this. It was 11am THE NEXT DAY and I hadn’t opened the game at all and it was still taking up 32% of my battery. Absolutely ridiculous. This game compared to Homescapes and Wildscapes is a piece of cake. Those two are insanely hard. I was planning on giving it 4 stars but ever since the last update this game has been draining my battery even when I’m not on the game!!! An example, I got on the game this morning at 8am (after JUST taking my phone off the charger) and I received 30 minutes unlimited lives. Not sure why but I definitely wanted to take advantage of it. I played until the 30 minutes ran out then got off the game. My phone was down to 72% after just 30 minutes. I put my phone back on the charger (at 11am it was down to 52%) and I’ve had to keep putting back on all day. I was like what the heck is wrong with my phone. So I go and look at the battery settings to see what’s taking up so much percentage of my battery that it keeps draining and what’s the ONLY thing taking up more than 5% of my battery? THIS GAME!! It is taking up SEVENTY PERCENT of my battery and I haven’t even been on it since 8am this morning (it is now 7pm and the game is SOMEHOW now taking up 73% of my battery). Seriously considering uninstalling it because of this. How does a game continue to take up my battery ALL DAY when you get on the game ONCE!!!?

Gardenscapes. My review always stays the same. I am a regular player who has very often nearly deleted the game. It can be addicting and can be fun! costs way too many coins for what you win...spend 900 and win usually about 50. At most a hundred. The power ups look the same but can be less effective on some levels than others. I expect a keg of TNT to blow up a goodly portion of the board, not a single layer when a firecracker does the same, just not as widespread. And playing this far I will warn you, the levels where Austin wears red are not nearly as hard as some he is normal. I just beat a level that was not red, I spent nearly two weeks trying to beat this level and was very seriously going to delete the game from frustration. I asked on Facebook if anyone passed it. Fortunately for Gardenscapes the person was actually a real friend. But even at that I beat it on the day I was going to delete it all. Give it a try only if you are hard headed because it will indeed try your patience. And as a PS...don't wast real money because the few times I spent that, I seriously did NOT beat the levels I spent for.

Don’t waste your time. This game simply keeps you at levels and withholds the pieces you need trying to force you to make in game purchases. There have been multiple times when pieces should have formed a power up but instead the game just makes a three-piece match and remove them from the board and leaves the other pieces that were part of a bigger move. It’s ironic that in their rules they state that if they catch you cheating they will flag your account however time and time again I’ve seen them cheat by not giving me the pieces I need to complete a level or pieces will move sideways as they fall into place just so that a power up is not formed. Other people have complained about the same exact thing and the developers just say that they are sorry and will pass it along to hopefully get fixed but it does not get fixed. There is a specific algorithm that holds you back if you start to pass multiple levels. Even worse, if you do make an in game purchase then they know that you’ve done it and will continue to hold you back so that you buy again. I have even used every single power up they offer on a single level and they will still make sure that I don’t have the pieces needed to finish the level. The storyline isn’t even enjoyable, I definitely recommend finding a different game to play.

Fun, Challenging, and Entertaining. My review falls into the same category of many of the reviews I read. I do love playing this game - the puzzles, reading comments, dialogue and action of the Gardner, dog, and friends. I too liked how the game eases you into to the game by beginner puzzles, but when you enter into the upper levels It may take a couple of days for me because I initially want to beat the puzzle without provided outside any extra help (explosives, disc, etc.) Needless to say, cleverly enough, you do have to use them to complete some levels or be patient as you wait for my Lives to generate. Also, I agree that when you do "win" the unlimited lives for a set number of hours, it would be nice to be able to use on your time. But I figured out a way to hold the activation of the clock...once the prize is revealed, Do NOT continue...just leave the Gardner clapping and leave the app (similar to a holding pattern). Then when you have the 2 hours to play, tap the continue link and play on. But it will on last as long as the special event (i.e. flower growth) lasts. Hope this made since.

Great game! But False Advertising 😠. I really enjoy the game. There lots of ways to earn things besides having to actually purchase things. The puzzles make you think but there not to hard. You can help out friends and get extra hearts which is always nice. Including the extra side quest stuff. However, lately there has been a lot of false advertising about this game. It show you thing that the game isn’t even about. For instance one ad I’ve seen shows you in a small boat as the butler guy. You have to pull on different loop rings to save him. Pull the wrong ones and he dies. The game has absolutely nothing to do with that. The other ad I saw was the butler is in a well and you have to use the right item to save him. This isn’t anything like the game either. You guys need to promote what the game is actually like not these fake ads. Make other games if you want them to be like those ads but don’t label it as gardenscape when it’s not. I enjoy the game a lot so I want to give it four stars but I also really am upset about the false advertising so I’m only giving it a three. If your able to fix the false advertising then I’ll think about giving you a better review.

Hate the new update...puzzle graphics quality went down. I’m giving this game a very low star review. I never review games, but this one is my favorite. Before this review I personally rate it at 5 stars and I recommend it to everyone since I love playing it so much. However, the problem is...the new update for the anniversary of the game. I just updated this game and I HATE the puzzle level graphics. (The rest of the game graphics are fine, it’s just the puzzle levels quality that went WAY down). Before the update the graphics on the level was super detailed and the flowers, fruit, grass, looked realistic. Now the graphics look extremely cartoonish and look like blobs of color. If you’ve ever checked out Homescapes and seen the puzzle level graphics (and didn’t like it, like me)....better get used to it for the new update made the graphics look like Homescapes. I love this game honestly, I’m on level 2,009, never had to spend real life money, (and I’m SUPER proud of that), and I want to keep playing; however, since the graphics quality went down so bad...I’m stopping. The graphics on this game is the main reason why I started playing and I don’t want that to be the reason why I stop playing it as well. PLEASE go back to the old update puzzle level graphics, then I will change my star review to where it SHOULD be.

Sometimes impossible. I absolutely love this game; however, it can be extremely challenging. Throughout the game, special events will happen where you can decorate beyond the storyline. This includes the house and the front garden or other places that require renovation tickets. The amount tickets or items needed to redecorate is EXTREMELY unreasonable. One of the events that recently ended was the Parisian decorations. Although I was constantly playing the game, I was no where near finishing the challenge. There is no way players should be required to get over 3,000 croissants (or whatever other item is being collected) in order to simply get one decoration. I truly think those number should be lowered because it’s near impossible. Having a short period of time to double the numbers does not help either. For the time being, I won’t even bother trying to play the event in the future because I know I won’t finish the decorations. The same applies to the decoration challenges that require tickets. The amounts should not go beyond 300 because then it starts to become impossible. I’ve stopped doing those events as well. I used to love those challenges. If the required tickets or items to be collected is lowered, the game can easily be 5 stars.

Aggravating - don’t play this greedy, money-pit of a game!!!. I played Homescapes for a while, then the game broke and wouldn’t open on my iPhone. So I downloaded Gardenscapes to try. Right away I noticed the levels are so much harder, even the lower ones. I’m at level 561 and at this point it seems every level is hard or super-hard, impossible to complete without using power-ups or spending coin for extra turns. The last board I played was a joke, you’re given only 16 turns to clear 60 apples and 60 berries while also dealing with spreading honey. Even the so-called “regular” levels are difficult to complete. It’s aggravating to play the same stupid level over and over again and get nowhere. Many times using power-ups doesn’t even help, since you can’t choose when you want to use them, you’re forced to use them at the beginning of the game and they often place them where they help the least. I’m getting ready to abandon this game and wish I hadn’t spent money on the in-app purchases. I came on here and read a bunch of reviews and what everyone is saying is true - unfair game play, pay-to-play model, greedy developers. Anyone who says you don’t have to spend a dime to progress in the game, bless your heart for having the patience to spend days, weeks, months trying to beat a single level without power-ups or having to spend coins for extra turns.

Okay Game. I honestly downloaded this game for the mini games that other games were promoting it for. I’m on level 548 and I have probably only gotten two of them. You earn one star by winning matching games (kinda like candy crush) and there’s a wheel that comes once a day I think with power ups. You also get power ups through events that are going on and depending on how many tasks you’ve completed. I do wish that (like another user said) we’d get more stars after winning a matching game. Especially the hard and super hard levels. Some tasks around the garden are one stars and I’ve seen up to 3 stars for a task. So it’d be cool if we could get more than one star per win. Another thing I’d like to see or recommend would be something kind of like a bank where you can save your leftover moves or power ups that you made after winning the game. Like if you had 5 moves left, two fireworks, 1 rainbow swirl and 3 bombs, instead of using it for more coins, you can save it for future levels. And if not, those leftover power ups can be counted as stars. Not sure if that makes sense but that’d be something cool to have Also, some levels are hard to beat with the amount of moves you guys give us. But overall it’s a really fun and addictive game.

better than chicken nuggets. This game has brought me love, life, and everything nice. it has brought me every cure to my boredom, my anxiety, and any problem that i have ever faced. not only do i play this game in my room, you best believe i played this game during school, during movies, during breakfast, lunch and dinner. i play this any chance i get. austin, don’t even get me started. he is the best fictional character i have ever witnessed. he crushes the stereotypes towards men. he shows me he cares about me, and that he’d literally spend thousands of dollars just to help me renovate my freaking garden. not only that, but i also have a pet dog named harry. you heard me, harry. you know how i came up with the name harry? i was playing gardenscapes while watching harry potter. one of the greatest movie franchises in history, and i was playing gardenscapes. if that doesn’t show you the amount of love i have for gardenscapes. i don’t what will. i highly recommend this game to literally ANYONE. I am 16 and i am OBSESSED. i have been playing this game since i was either 13 or 14, and i’ve never deleted once. thank you for everything.

Are there different games?. The adds for this show puzzle solving ex. Sliding staffs to free girl from room while not allowing rabid dog to hurt her or fire to burn her. Yet all the game I play to receive stars are mostly matching fruit/flowers. At what level do the problem solving games start? I do agree the matching games do seem random and eventually if you waist enough time you win. It’s like the same game changes every time you play it. So you can’t learn a strategy it’s just random luck of the draw. I really wanted to play the mini game with the bridge but coin count was more than I see and I need the coins to get through most levels. I’d like to add that I really enjoyed the game portion that solved for the witch in the park. I could play the game just for that alone. Still enjoying playing this game. Thank you for adding more of the “witch in the park” like portions such fun. Deserves every bit of a 5 star rating. I am disappointed with the races. They take up time that could be filled with better things or nothing would be better.

Advertisements. I used to love this game, I saw ads for it here and there and downloaded it, because I liked match 3 games, one day I deleted it because I was bored of it, months later I see another ad for it. It wasn’t your standard “match 3” ad, it was a game where you pull rods kind of like cut the rope. I cringe so hard watching those new ads because of the “only 5% can solve this” or “FAIL” And even though it’s not their fault entirely since they probably obtained it from voodoo games. I can’t get over just how cringe inducing the ads are. If you look up: “misleading puzzle ads” then you’ll see COUNTLESS people saying how much they strongly hate those ads. I miss the game for what it used to be, and with other game developers adopting that same annoying idea for ads is getting old. So please stop. Just change the ads back to what they were before. They were so much better, and I didn’t think I’d say this, but you should probably remove the mini games all together... the game was so much better without them, and if you remove those ads, you’ll find thousands of people cheering for the removal of misleading puzzle ads. Thank you for reading this, and I hope you put it into consideration.

Fun but could be better. The game is great fun, but I feel it could be improved with the tasks not being broken down so many times. Also why not add some fun mini games to let us help in the task as opposed to breaking it down into three, two star collecting ventures. For example, recently I had to look for the maze map, then when we found it, it was in pieces, now I have to use 12 stars just to build the shrubs for the maze, but instead You could have had a mini puzzler so I could put the map together and not need any stars. Match three can still be your main puzzles, but an easy search and find, or logic puzzle would help break up the monotony a bit, especially when your on level 585 and all the levels seem to take 8 lives to pass. Lastly a half an hour is a long time to wait for a life, especially when the level takes only a few minutes to fail. It could be closer to every 10 or 15 minutes you get a new life. Well thank you for the fun game, for now I am still playing and find it just as addicting as it was on day one, just sort of annoying with the task break ups and the waiting on lives. Hope this helps...

SO over this game. I just got a charge from Apple for having this app on my phone. You have so many avenues of income, and some of them are quite steep; for instance, you charge 1200 coinage for bombs? 50 coins so the Carpenter will hurry up and build something faster? Just takes away from available coins to buy accouterment needed to beat a level. If you don’t have coinage you get taken to a page that charges far too much money considering you charge a monthly rate! Greed much? I’m currently in the 90s in terms of levels but I read you have 2500 levels. Let’s do the math here, shall we? By the time someone gets to the upper level so how much money have they spent? This game is inconsistent. A player can go through a whole life not getting anything more than small sticks of dynamite when larger bombs and TNT is required. When the level can’t be beat without your offerings of explosions, you almost patronizingly overkill on the bombs so the lame player can move onto the next level (leaving many unused bombs). Yeah, I get it, I’m lame… And you want to clean out my bank account. Quit being so greedy, charge less for explosions and rainbow blasts, etc. Anyway, I like the little villages and gardens and Austin is precious, (if not a little nelly (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

Wrong advertisement. The adds show the mini games most of the times, and I download the game and those are just mini games, like come on. This is literally just stupid, the adds say wrong and I get a ton of those adds, which show the really cool looking mini games, but instead we have to play candy crush to even begin to play those. Also the money issue, it costs so much and you have to pay and pay and pay just to pass a hard level. I know you developers want money and that’s why you make it hard so you just want others to buy into their frustration, so i mean can you stop making the levels hard to past. Also Austin is slow and can you make him stop talking please, it makes me go insane, like this is actually SLOW and the talking in it is never a priority to the game so please, with due respect, take it out. STOP COPYING CANDY CRUSH AND GET A LIFE WITHOUT MONEY, LIKE HONESTLY STOP GETTING PEOPLE WORKED UP JUST TO GET MONEY. That is just low and I mean just plain, down right sick. And you know the worst part is that you developers won’t even respond to this because I just called you out on your lil trick slick play. So just stop with the hard levels, this is for ages four and up, yet I’m 20 and these are actually impossible at times, I spend days on each level. Also sorry for my spelling and grammar, I’m typing at 2 in the morning. :)

Love the new update!. I’ve been playing this game for a while, and I really enjoy it. Beyond just the basic function of the interactions with Austin and the day-to-day renovation of the garden, I enjoy the interesting hijinks the characters get up to and the ways the levels work. There’s endless variety in the requirements, power ups, and obstacles, which keeps the game interesting. On top of those, there’s special events almost constantly, allowing a player who has (with quite the struggle lol) stopped compulsively micropurchasing to obtain the power ups which help me get past levels that are more difficult. My advice; turn off your in-app purchase permissions before you get this app haha. That said, I really haven’t had any major problems with the app or the events. I’ve got no complaints- and believe me, that’s a high commendation. I appreciate the new update, because it’s streamlined functionality that I didn’t know was annoying me! It’s so nice, honestly, I feel like the developers are secretly reading my mind or smth. 10/10 would recommend. (BTW I play Homescapes and Township- both excellent games- and NONE of them are pay to play. It’s awesome.)

A Disappointed Fan. I have been playing this game for multiple years. I am past a thousand levels in, have dedicated hours and brainpower to it. I loved this game and renovating! I also have other games on my phone as you can imagine and over this year I have seen more and more ADs of this game, but all of them were fake. Seeing as I was already experienced in the game I was absolutely flabbergasted by the depicted choice based adventure sort of game they had begun advertising, knowing the game was nothing like that. I was confused, why would they need to advertise as something else while their game was perfectly enjoyable as is? As time went on the ads picked up in frequency, full of false art and lies. It became that every game I played that had an ad showed me the lying ads, and I have gotten more and more irritated. It’s not that I find ads annoying or the repeat of ads annoying, what was annoying me was that they were blatantly lying to people to get them to download their game. I am deleting the game out of my own morals. I love this game, but I cannot condone this behavior, and seeing the app on my screen fills me with a sense of guilt and disgust. I hope they change their ways and become more honest, as this shady behavior is not cute. If they do, I will be the first to return. For now, it goes in the garbage. I know it does nothing, but I honestly apologize to all the people being misled.

Needs improvements. Absolutely agree with other reviewer 100%. The game is about building the garden. Ok, I get it that in order to get/do something you need to “call” somebody, open something etc. but at least increase rewards level. Boosters help, but I think it’s done on purpose to lower their power to make players buy for real money (thru in app purchase) booster/coin packages. I don’t mind ads in games, that’s how the makers of the game I guess earn their money and of course from people buying within the app. Of course there should be different levels of difficulty, otherwise it would be too easy and not challenging, but it’s ridiculous that sometimes “super hard level” takes you several days to complete, because you don’t have or don’t buy boosters. People who make this game need to make it more appealing, instead of annoying and frustrating. Some levels have just a few moves to complete it but the difficulty of it requires usage of gazillion boosters and additional moves that you have to get with coins earned through out the game. At the end of each level it gives you 50 or 100 coins, to get lowest booster you need 900coins.... I am thinking of deleting this game and will not recommend it to others, unless changes happen and it’s more enjoyable to play it.

One of the most expensive games I’ve played. The rewards are sparse, gameplay reduces your coin stash in no time, and to beat the increasingly harder and harder levels, for renovating the garden areas and progressing through the storyline, you need more and more expensive boosters that cost at least 10 times the coins you earn by solving puzzles. There is no way to break even. Steer clear if you don’t have the money because this game will cost you a bundle of real money, not the inexpensive fun that I thought it would be unless you are extremely patient and willing to stop after renovating one or 2 areas and beating the first 300 levels. After that, you need expensive boosters for almost every level. But if you get this far, you’ll likely be too curious and addicted to stop because gardenscapes is fun and entertaining for fools like me. I just wish free gameplay wasn’t so agonizingly slow, and that I could more easily earn the billions of coins, tens of thousands of boosters and thousands of stars necessary to progress through the game. One star and 60 coins for each level you beat just doesn’t cut it. And special events that earn 100 coins and a few extra boosters aren’t much help either.

Long-time fan. I have been playing Gardenscapes for YEARS. I’m on level 2686, I just love this game. However, I’m starting to feel more and more like the developers want to alienate and drive away their most loyal fans. I cannot win more that one or two levels in a row without being stopped by a level that takes two or three DAYS to win. I understand wanting the levels to get “harder” as gameplay goes on, but when I see the level purposely not letting me win (i.e. not giving a needed piece, or the level playing out in such a way that strategic matches disappear “by chance”), I get pretty frustrated. I also understand that they want to make money, but needing to pay a dollar to win every other level seems awfully extreme. I miss out on contests because I’m stuck on one level for the entire contest period. I can’t stack any levels to get the magic hat or the magic chest to be any meaningful help. And I can’t remember the last time I won a jackpot on a daily spin. Don’t alienate the players that love you, please.

Outstanding best mobile game EVER. I Play this game Fishdom and Homescapes and I still can’t get enough of any of those games I wish there would be more updates that give you more stuff decorations for instants and this new update rocks I really love how you do it and a long time ago I can’t remember if it was an attic event or a basement event in this game you were able to fix the attic or the basement basically like Homescapes events and I really want another one of those as a reminder of Homescapes there are bugs but Homescapes has more bugs Fishdom is just perfect but I do love all three of the games equally they are all really good games I hope they all get updates soon and I wanted there to be a Fishdom reference just like how in Fishdom you can buy the Austin statue I want there to be an event where you would be able to get a pet fish because that would be pretty cool or just a small reference maybe a fish event but besides all that it’s a really good game I love it I hope it gets new update soon along with all the other apps from this company good game you should really buy this game and support to all the other games in the company.

Player beware....Too expensive and online tutorials don’t match. I’ve been stuck on level 3309 for about a week. I don’t know how many lives and power ups I’ve used on it. When I look up how to beat the level on line, all the players in the videos start with 31 lives, I’m starting with 25. I’m tired of having to spend $3 to beat a level. And I watched at least three different videos that all started with 6 more lives than the level. That would be at least $3 of in game purchases. Only to then have to spend the more to beat the next level. They say every level is beatable, just go online to see how it’s done! But pay close attention to the small differences between the online videos and the levels you’re actually given. It’s a fun game if it wasn’t such a scam. I wouldn’t mind paying a dollar here and there but you need about 100 stars to finish a garden day, and it probably averages out to needed to spend close to a dollar every other level. If you’re willing to spend $50-$100 over and over to progress, you will have fun. Otherwise, don’t even bother downloading this game.

Fun to pass the time. Not sure if this is really positive or negative. Maybe informative opinion. This game is a lot of fun especially when you get infinite lives. But the game requires very limited strategy. Sometimes, it seems obvious that you won’t win within the first 5 turns, other times it’s obvious you will. There is seemingly an algorithm that predetermines if you will beat the level within the given turn limit you have. Hence - limited strategy. So it encourages you to use money to buy help, whether it’s more lives, or helpful support like bombs or coins, etc. But this makes sense. The game is free to download. How else would the developer make money? It’s either - pay for download, in app purchases, or ad time. This is not unique - so I can’t help but laugh at others reviews who say the “money grabbing” is frustrating. It’s also not new. Many gaming apps do this. The game was FREE! Beyond that, you have the choice to purchase or not. Eventually you will win - after all, they also don’t want people to stop playing completely. Anyway, the game is still a lot of fun and I enjoy it.

Great game to play but crashes constantly. I love playing this game, I’ve been playing for about three months now and I’m well over the 800’s levels. The game is fun to play and very interactive. I love that there are not only puzzles to play but their are also other little competitions happening all the time that help gain boosters and coins. Not to mention the daily freebies are a life safer on certain levels. My one and only gripe with this game is that it CONSTANTLY and when I say CONSTANTLY I mean CONSTANTLY crashes. The game crashes almost every two levels I try to play. It wouldn’t be too bad if it crashed when I wasn’t playing a level or just beat a level because when it crashes as I’m playing I not only lose a life but I lose all the boosters I acquired from beating previous levels as well as I lose coins that I used on that level I’m playing. If it crashes right after I beat a level it’s 50/50 on whether or not I will receive a star for that level even though I beat it and it’s very annoying having to replay a level I already beat. I really wish something would be done about the constant crashing.

Love it but.... Recently we switched cell phone providers from sprint to Verizon. At that time my husband upgraded his phone but I did not. When my husband put Gardenscapes back on his new phone it began to act oddly. At the same time I opened my game to simply play it and I was asked to sync my game and given two options. I had never been asked this before. When my husband started playing on his new phone he was way ahead in levels from his last game and we realized he was playing my game on his phone. We couldn’t figure out how to fix it so he deleted his. The next day I attempted to play my game and as long as I picked the right sync option I was able to play my game. Eventually it stopped asking me to sync and I was able to play as I always had. The next day my husband decided to try downloading the game again to see if he could play his game. Later when I went to play again the games had switched and I had his game on my phone and he had mine on his. I wrote to customer service/support but can’t get back into the game to see if they answered. I have spent a ton of money and worked very hard on this game and I don’t want to lose everything and I also want to be able to play my game on my phone. Hopefully someone will see this and answer me here so I can see it and this problem can be fixed immediately

Love this game, with caveats. I really enjoy this game; to me it’s way better than Homescapes. Love the graphics. I do get a bit bored when it takes many tries to beat a level, but I just wait until my lives recharge and try again. Using boosters rarely works for me since I can’t choose where to place them. But sooner or later I get lucky and move on. I agree with the other reviewer about the time bonuses. I’ve learned not to accept them until I have the time to sit for 2 or 6 hours. I also agree about only getting 1 star when you finish a level; there are some extra hard levels that earn 2X the stars, but it does take awhile to earn what’s needed to move on to another day. And I agree that it’s silly to have to spend a star just to call one of the other characters. Last complaint: I wish the special flowers grown for the Orangerie weren’t immediately thrown in the trash when finished. Why can’t we enjoy them for awhile? All that aside, this is still my favorite game; the one I’ve played the longest and haven’t totally gotten bored or frustrated with.

This game is for the strategist. Very much like Chess, this isn’t a chance game (I.e. Monopoly). The more you strategize and the better of a strategist you are... the further you’ll get in this game. If you’re looking for an easy game, don’t play a game that requires you to think to win. Yes, in the beginning, it starts off easy and gets progressively harder. Honestly, that’s how it should be. They do have pop-ups to buy stuff but in comparison to other games I’ve played, it’s not excessive or too intrusive. It can be addicting and there’s definitely been a few points I’ve been stuck but managed to get through it without the need to make a purchase. If you get really stuck, just wait for an event to get free stuff and then use that as your opportunity to move onto the next level. I’ve beaten over 3000 levels in less than 2 months so it’s doable. Excellent graphics and very interactive. I’ve also played Candy Crush before this one (which is the O.G. of these types of games) and while I loved Candy Crush, (only quit playing b/c my data got lost), this game is very fun to play too. It can get repetitive, which is why I give it 4 ★ but it keeps me entertained. Great job to the devs.

Money hungry. This game was fun for about a week and that was it. It cost way too much money for everything to have fun . 900 coins for 5 more lives 900 coins to actually continue a board and they only provide you with 5 lives so most times you will loose. 1400 for 1 measly set of bombs 900 for a spinner etc. there are power ups and most hard boards can not be beat with out power ups and they cost too Much to buy. Everyone I know has deleted the game and I’m next . It’s no fun to be on the same board that you know you can’t beat without a power up for 30 days .. it becomes frustrating annoying and just not fun anymore . Playrix Has the game set up this way so your forced to spend money and pay for things and I def will boy do it .. make a game that’s fun for the people not a game that is not fun unless they spend money on money and power ups ... I’m already not playing anymore .. it’s ridiculous if you ask me .. I hope They are reading this. A continue more lives and power ups are not even reachable for purchase and the amount of money given each board that you beat is a joke .. cute layout but not fun anymore ..

Great Game, but…. I’ve played this game for years and it’s highly addictive. I love playing it and watching the areas and characters develop. You can join teams that help each other out, and there are limited time features where you can change an area by reaching certain goals. My ONE complaint is this. Challenge levels were recently introduced, and literally, not one person on my team likes them. They are horrible. As I said, they are a challenge, with increased difficulty. BUT you get one chance to beat them, you can’t bypass them as optional, and (most frustratingly), if you lose, which is likely, it wipes out any bonuses you’ve earned by consecutively beating previous levels. Winning one offers the player many additional bonuses, but it’s really difficult to achieve. You’ll be on a great winning streak, then BAM a challenge level pops up randomly and you have no choice but to attempt it. You lose the level, you start over re-earning your bonuses. It just seems like a cheap, cash grabby way to frustrate people into buying bonus packages. If this review makes it to the developers: PLEASE ADJUST THESE LEVELS TO BE OPTIONAL. I don’t know anyone who likes them.

Why is the help so useless??. One would think that inheriting a manor would come with more responsibility than returning gardens to former glory. Or more competent help for that matter. The game is pleasing enough, quick easy levels mixed with frustratingly difficult ones, the usual for games of this ilk. But for some reason, the game forces you to interact with and do the bidding of the incompetent butler that let these gardens fall to a state of wilderness in the first place. Why should I care that the butler needs to help his father find and tune a guitar? Why should I have to spend my effort to solve puzzles so that he can laze about reading books and training a dog I was forced into getting in the first place? One would think that a rather sizable sum of money would accompany this new manor house and the seemingly endless gardens around it. Why can I not simple pay for the gardens to be returned to their former glory? Or better yet, sell the thrice damned house, butler, and rather useless dog to another rube for a deep discount? I would have kept my silence, but this game also asked me thrice in an hour to rate it, not sure why, it had never been this needy before. Hopefully this shuts up the random strangers that feel it is appropriate to come into my home and gardens whenever they feel like chatting with the help.

Too difficult for casual gaming. 1) Too many of the levels are too difficult and take too long. This is casual gaming - not a highly strategic thinking game. As such it’s just frustrating. 2) The rewards are too low ... you can never earn enough coins. The developers were too greedy 3) I hate having to earn a star for something stupid. The garden graphics are wonderful and I want to decorate more of the garden. Don’t waste my stars doing something I couldn’t care less about 4) This is major snafu in the game ... I can use some of my earned boosters. But they come only at the very beginning of the game. Please ... please let us choose when we want to employ them. IN CLOSING ... Developers would do themselves a lot of good if they would take some cues from the Pearls Peril devs ... Pearls Peril is not too difficult and as a result it’s perfect for a little relaxation at the end of the day. As a result everyone finishes all the levels - and wants more. In contrast, Playrix games are too difficult for relaxing gaming. As a result way too many people give up prematurely. The Playrix devs seem like inexperienced gamers who had a great idea but didn’t understand the psychological elements of gaming. Homescapes plays much better ... but still has a few of the annoying problems. Dear developers ... please listen to your customer’s feedback.

Where do my power ups go?!?!?. I love this game and there are a few levels that are SO HARD to beat and 90% of the time I just keep trying and then I’ll finally beat them. BUT there are some times I buy stuff from the garden shop to beat them levels, especially when the magic hat is going on, so I can keep all my power ups that I earn, mostly through purchases. About a month ago, I had my magic hat full (2 bombs, 2 of the color things, and 3 extra moves), when I went in the next day to play, they were all gone without me losing a level. I contacted customer support and NOTHING! No response at all. So I kinda just said “whatever” and moved on. WELL it happened AGAIN today! I don’t know why it’s happening BUT again, I made a couple of purchases to make sure I didn’t lose my progress and my full hat (some levels you just need that to beat) and I would LOVE to know why! I play this game daily because I love it but if it gets to the point where I’m spending money to keep going and then I lose the extras anyway, I’m not sure how much longer I’ll keep this game Just a warning guys, you may spend money just for it to be waisted.

Fun, but. Don’t get me wrong, this game is fun. It is a really good game for kids and adults, but it does have it’s kinks. The first one is that it has many requirements that aren’t needed. For example one is that you have to wait for your lives to refill before you can play! It is not even 2 minutes, it is 20 minute! The second one is that it is nothing like the adds. I love playing the adds, but when I played this I felt that I didn’t get the write game. I was so confused l didn’t even want too play the game, if I was to rate it then it would of got a big ZERO! Then I gave the game a try and realized that it actually was very fun! The last, but not is that they expected you to pay real money! Everything is so expensive you have to pay real money. I don’t know about you but I am not the kids that pays $10-20 on a game! That is just stupid! I mean how does that. Now after reading all that you may think that you shouldn’t get this game! I have to say in the end this game is a really good game! It is one of my favorites. I am just saying if thoughts kinks weren’t there this would be my very favorite game. So in the end I think you should get this game! SO GET IT!

Fun but sometimes can get really annoying. For me this game is pretty fun but one of the main things about this game that I don’t like is that it doesn’t give you enough moves on hard levels and usually I need 1 more move to finish or complete the level. And after that Austin would usually say (what a difficult level) and than I would get annoyed. Also another main thing that really annoys me is that you have spend 900 coins and you only get 5 more moves, I really think that you should spend 100 or 150 coins and get 5 more moves cause 900 coins is just outrageous and when you get to around level 60 and up the levels get pretty hard which means that you don’t get as many coins that easy or fast. I already deleted this game twice but now this is the third time that I’ve tried it and I and now at level 128 and I am to far into the game to delete it. Also in the daily spin there should be about 10 extra moves that you can get to use in the levels. And the last thing that I have to say about this game is that on some of the tasks that you have to do they are totally random and have nothing to do with the game at all. This is all that I have to say about this game but other than the flaws it’s a great and fun game to play!!!

It’s a love/hate relationship. This game is so addicting I love it. But it also the most frustrating game I’ve ever played and I hate it. Today I am especially mad because I can seem to beat this level that is not supposed to be this hard and I get so close and only need one more move but then game over. Austin is probably the most annoying game cartoon person ever also. Like why does it cost 3 stars to wash the dog? He’s the butler, do your own job Austin. Coins are way to hard rooms by for free also, like I’m not gonna watch a 30 second video for 30 coins or whatever, and beating a level only gets you around 50 and to buy 5 more moves it costs 900. The coin system is kind of messed up. HINT: do not buy 5 more moves for a level unless you are 100% sure you can beat it in those moves. Don’t get me wrong though, I will not ever be able to stop playing because I’ve invested too much in to this game (currently on level 1266) so I’m too far to give up now but like for real y’all, cut us some slack, more free coins. ALSO, I think the daily spin thing is rigged. I spin that thing everyday and I have never ever gotten the jackpot. And I have had this game for a very long time.

Favorite Game...except for.... Should be 5 stars but it’s too expensive to play or even remain competitive. While this is my favorite game, by far, the coins that are allotted are no way enough to sustain continued play. I understand that a company has to make a profit, but this costs tooo much. The award for winning a game should be at least 450 coins, half of what it costs to continue a level, not a mere 100 coins. We’d have to beat at least 9 levels just to earn enough coins to continue a level or even buy 3 rainbow blasts!!!! The add-ons are waaaaay too expensive. The only “reasonable” cost is the coin vault option. But 3800 coins for 3 rakes? 1900 coins for 3 shovels? 1300 coins for only 3 bombs? If you want more users = more advertisers, more paying users, make it much less expensive to compete!!! The rewards, competitions are, for the most part, fun. Except for the dog training in which one has to start all over again for missing a level. But again, please make it easier on the pocketbook, more fun to compete by reducing the costs of playing, items, etc. to affordable & competitive amounts....PLEASE! Thank you for any & all considerations. Blessings...

Fun! Fun! Calm Fun!. I have been playing Gardenscapes for over 3 years now and it is something I simply take my time when I can or play vigorously for a little bit or even have periods of time where I don’t check in for days or weeks. It is just a great interesting game and they did very well making the challenges well and the rewards! They only thing I think that bothers me is the very strange things they do with this spiritual man walking around. I don’t like it and have backed off on how much I play so to this character showing up. I don’t think this religion or Fundi should be there. It should be more fun going and or about making yourself thing that you can achieve oneness with a God or the earth. It isn’t about this “journey” Is ALL about One Mans journey to the cross to die for our sins and raise again having conquerer day it! We are FREE from sin and do not have to achieve a perfect state. Jesus eliminates this! No matter how zen we get, we can ever become Him. We must seek Him, Jesus and gardens are the BEST places too (ie: Garden of Gethsemene) Whave all of our hopes and dreams to Him! The game is very low stress and just a simple fun non threatening thing to play and enjoy.

Some levels take weeks to clear. Fun game. I like the concept. I’ve been playing for quite some time and have spend quite a bit of money. The game requires it...which is its downfall. At some point the delay in being able to clear a level is frustrating. Especially when you spend money to do it. At the beginning it was a few tries. Then it was a few hours, then it became days, weeks. I no longer enjoy it. It’s the drug to try and get the next level but when the tasks become, feeding the cat or something stupid like this and has nothing to do with updating the garden, you waste stars on trivial garbage. I don’t mind spending randomly if needed but the greed your game plays now to force the hand of players to either buy or be stuck for quite a long time is just not allowing me to enjoy it any longer. Way too many hard and super hard levels in a row. Rigged and really is just making me more angry as I write this. Do yourself a favor, don’t start a his game unless you are willing to spend hundreds of dollars.

My favorite game!!. I e always been interested in the puzzle games like Candy Crush & Bejeweled, and I honestly thought this would be the same basic thing but I was pleasantly surprised to be wrong. This game is so addicting and fun, and creative! I love that you get to restore parts of your garden, learn new things about gardening, choosing and designing different things, all the events are well thought out and exciting to do, I love that you get to meet people and animals (mostly the animals!) that you get to let live in your garden. It gives you a sense of pride to look back at all your progress and see how great everything looks together. THE ONE BIT OF FEEDBACK I HAVE, is please find more than just one way to earn stars. If you can buy coins I feel like buying stars should be an option, or to win them in events or at hard levels. Other than that I have been playing for months and have nothing but good things to say about it (except the stars lol). I love showing my friends and family my garden, asking their opinions on design choices, and bonding with them over the game. 9/10 would recommend- please add another way to get stars. Thank you!

extremely inappropriate. I downloaded and played this game a while ago, and was not interested in it at all. The old advertisements made it seem strictly renovation-based, which is false as the majority of what I did was the same as the Bejeweled games. If I want to play Bejeweled, I would play that. The main reason behind my 1 star rating and title is the advertisements for this game (as well as Homescapes). This game primarily appeals to children, but the advertisements are extremely horrible, and have absolutely nothing to do with the game to begin with. The advertisement which is a spoof of the movie “It” is not something I would recommend when trying to sell your game to young children. Children are often already afraid of clowns, and you are putting the scariest clown chasing a character in your advertisement. Not only is that advertisement horrible, but there is one with the man tied to a bed with handcuffs and you REALLY think that is appropriate? Using vivid images which instill fear in children- a good portion of the game’s players? The people behind these advertisements- those who proposed them, those who animated them, those who approved them, and those who paid for them to be played- all deserve to get fired. Fear is not the base of this game, but that is how the absolute garbage of advertisements is coming across. Good job.

Like the game but hate the consent events. I really like the game a lot. It’s challenging and I really like how you can make a space. But I really hate the consent events that the game has been doing since they introduce them. Granted I do like doing the events but not constantly. I like playing games a lot and I do like doing the events once awhile but if it does nothing but events back to back I’m tempted on deleting the game. The reasons why is one I do get bored playing one game constantly, two I like taking breaks between events and play while I’m relaxing not to feel like I’m force to play to keep a certain standing, and finally I don’t have money to get the power ups or coins to keep playing in order to win a level so I can move on. I also been thinking about deleting the game just because of the consent events. The game is really well done and the puzzles can be very challenging but the consent events is the reason for the 3 stars and not a 4/5 star like I was going to do before. Sorry for the long review rant but I feel it was necessary to understand that not everyone like the consent events without a breaks. Breaks are necessary to level off the demands on players and for us to take our time on some levels without a certain demands.

Buggy with bad customer service. I played Homescapes for years and enjoyed it so much that I decided to try Gardenscapes. Gardenscapes is also quite enjoyable, except that it is considerably more buggy than Homescapes. I mostly ignored the bugs and made regular purchases until I got cheated on a transaction. When I reported this to customer service, the agent basically said he didn’t see evidence of the problem and refused my request for a refund. He also said to resubmit my request if I disagreed. So, basically, he didn’t want to deal with my problem. At that point, I nearly deleted the app but decided instead to play and just not make anymore purchases. Months and many levels later, I am stuck on a level where the pieces behave inconsistently. (Mind you, I am not a beginner at the game, so I know how the pieces are supposed to work.) I have contacted customer service and the agent sent a link to general tips on playing, ignoring what I said about the bugs, and ending this frustrating exchange the same way as the prior agent did, which is “have a nice day.” I have replied with a request to fix the bugs, and if I don’t get a satisfactory response, I will be deleting the game. My advice to you is to keep looking for a better game than this one.

I'm deleting it. This is a cute game and addictive, unfortunately, it gets difficult too quickly and you need boosters to get thru the levels. You earn a few in game but otherwise you have to pay for them or pay for coins to get you extra time to finish the level. You also have to play levels to earn stars to make changes to the areas of the garden, which is fine except when you can't get past a level and some tasks take 2 or 3 stars to complete (ie 2 or 3 levels passed to earn those stars). Would be easy to spend a bunch of money on this game. I would rather pay $5, $10 or even $20 on a game and not have in-game purchases. I would continue to play this game but I'm only at level 65 and working on the 3rd area of the game and can't get past it. I had unlimited lives but out of boosters and had to have played that level at least 100 times. If it's this hard now, how much worse does it get? I'm not going to keep throwing money at this game - it reminds me of the carnival games where you try to win the big stuffed animal, but you have to keep buying tickets to play. By the time you are done and walk away with a dinky stuffed bear, you could have bought 20 of the big ones. So, if you are still reading, I am deleting the game to eliminate the frustration. I would recommend avoiding the frustration altogether...

Playrix - Love it; but “Please be reasonable". I love most of the games Playrix puts out! Very impressive graphics, storyline and characters. The game is free, to play. But, if you get stuck on a level for a period of time, it can become frustrating. To use extra moves (5) is 900 coins, additional 5 moves is 1200 coins. Beating a level you obtain anywhere from 56 to 100 coins, depending on the difficulty of the level and how many moves it takes to beat the level. It can take 10+ levels won, to bank enough coins to purchase additional moves. The other option is to purchase additional coins and explosives to beat a hard level. This truly adds up. I am on level 1700 and have spent more of my own money, than I would like to admit. I would like to see more bonus rounds, either more coins for beating a level or less coins required for additional level moves. I hate, hate the levels that include pieces that have explosive timers. I play to relax, but this causes me anxiety. The levels to complete against the clocks are acceptable, but please get rid of the pieces that have to be matched before they explode and the level is lost, regardless of how many moves left.
