Fritog - Long time player.....
I love this game, have been playing it for quite some time. It’s my “go to” favorite. I’m somewhere around level 1100 or close to it. Some levels are hard to the point that it gets ridiculous. Some of the hard levels are easy or perhaps it’s just luck to win them. I have spent days on a level and get frustrated and then dont play for a while...but i still really enjoy this game. You CAN win every level with out a power up. You DO NOT need to spend any money on this game, patience is a virtue (so they say). I have spent money and lately I haven’t. The one thing i do agree with most reviewers on is this... to buy a power up costs wayyy too much money for the amount of coins you receive for passing a level. To continue a game (at 900 coins) for a move or two costs a fortune considering you really don’t win much. To buy three hammers costs too much (1900 coins). I realize they do want you to spend money and i have but even when you spend, it doesn’t give you much in return. I mostly just wanted to let people know you don’t have to spend money to win this game...and yes, some of the tasks are eye rolling but....its still a fun game. Even if you don’t feel like playing, you can still receive a daily reward for logging on.
Megan121100 - Rewards aren’t sufficient
I have played many, and I mean MANY, games such as this one in my lifetime. I find them to be fun and even addicting. Although the concept of the game is great, and I’ve only been playing for a short while, something needs to be improved with the coin/lives system. Getting around 50 coins per mini-game, which can take multiple lives to complete, isn’t sufficient enough. In order to buy a life, 900 coins, you would have to play around 18 rounds just to get enough coins for ONE life. I do not pay money on games, never have never will, but it’s so frustrating that you may have one move left and instead of paying real cash, not in game coins, you have to wait for a life to replenish just to try and fail at the level again. Each round can take 10+ lives to complete, and it takes quite awhile for the lives to replenish. There should be some kind of reward opportunity other than completing a day, especially because you need to play the mini-games to get stars, in order to complete tasks, to complete the day. That’s a lot of tasks to do with not a lot of lives/coin rewards!!! If there were events where you can play other mini-games to gain rewards/treasures I think it would be more efficient. I also think 28 minutes is a long time to wait for one single life. I don’t want to give up on this game with not a lot of time put into it already, but if there is no improvement, I might have to.
Lailac2014 - Love the game but....
I am at level 498 and I love the game. But when you have 10 more moves left and you win the level you are lucky to win 58 coins?!?! And you just better break out your dollars because some levels you will be killing yourselves to win. Like 498 level I am not going to spend anymore money on this game. And the few moves it gives you to play and the purple blocks that has the bugs in them good luck they get much harder in higher up levels. This level it has the regular white blocks that grow but the purple ones you have to kit them 2 to 3 times and they grow back just one to two moves after you remove another side. To get extra coins for more lives or boosters it is a lot of money for what little you get. 900 coins you get 3 this. And 1900 coins you get 3 globes. The lives run out so fast and sometimes my friends send me lives I see them and play one game go back to collect the life because it won’t allow you to have 6 life’s and it is missing. I am in the room right at the stairs I forget what it is called. Looks like another living room to me. The outside green house it felt like it took years to finish the plot line. I wish you could request the boosters but place them where you want them if you want them in the game. Like they would be added to your side menu but not dropped down in the puzzle because it places them and there would be a awesome move but the boosters messed it up and you only can use the boosters there is no other move.
Elephant3456789 - Cute and fun! 👌🏻 But here’s the thing.
Homescapes is a good app. Not amazing but it’s good. It’s cute, it’s colorful and you feel accomplished when you fix the tv or replace the chair. The characters are nice and honestly kind of funny. 😄 and I’m glad you guys even included pets in the game! I like how everything is tried to kept decorated around the house. I like Homescapes much better than gradenscapes just because the colors and the graphics are better int my opinion. At least the game is a little better. The problem is you have to get stars from playing one game only. And even on a hard level you still get 1 star. It’s annoying how fast your stars run out. What’s even more annoying, it’s that sometimes you have to give one of your stars just to open a box, that you’ve already given a star for box to get to the house! What I’m saying is give more chances to get stars. Like as a prize. Instead of just money, give us a little money and a star! Or have different games besides just the one game to match the colors. Another thing is that it takes so long to complete one floor or one area of the house because of how limited of the stars you have. So I suppose you should just focus on the star problem because it will fix this one of taking so long! 😆 Please take this into consideration. The game would be much more entertaining and exciting if I didn’t give up so much on the game. Thank you 🐘🐘🐘
Amityville69 - WHATS WITH THE CREEPY AD?!
This is a decent and fun game... But the ads that I see for this game while I’m playing other games don’t make any sense at all: they are completely misleading and don’t have anything to do with the Actual gameplay. When I first downloaded this game it was because of an ad that I’d seen, and the demo allowed me to pick out which furniture, which wallpaper, etc. Then I downloaded Homescapes and played, even spent some money on it because I was having fun and wanted to keep progressing. Now all the ads I see for this game don't make sense. I see some where the main characters are trapped on an island and they are being attacked by a shark, some where they are stranded in the cold and freezing, and within the last couple days I saw two more that DONT MAKE SENSE! The guy has to pee and he’s running down the hall and things are breaking. Then the reason I wrote this review is because I was so confused and disturbed by the one I just saw: the guy has his hands and feet tied to bed posts and the room is on fire and he wants to escape. That seems macabre and violent; who tied him there... his parents? It’s creepy when you compare it to the actual innocent and child friendly gameplay. What in the world was that ad?! Why would you make that strange violent ad to promote this game? I’m disturbed... lol... it’s been months and months since I’ve seen an ad that depicts anything similar to the actual gameplay. :/
RayneMaybe - Annoying Storylines
I'm giving this game 3/5 stars for a few reasons. I thoroughly enjoy the puzzle aspect itself, more so than competing puzzle games. The animations are smoother, the power ups are well thought out and exciting to use, and the puzzles are fun. I'm docking points though, because the storylines are infuriating to deal with. What roped me in to downloading this game was the home decor aspect. As a huge fan of interior design, this seemed like the perfect game for me. I got to play fun levels, but also simultaneously get to decorate a home. However, after spending months on this game, and completing 240 levels, I've only just now unlocked the 3rd room. If you can even call it that. It goes living room, kitchen, and then garden? Why!? There are TONS of rooms in this house, and after TWO HUNDRED AND FOURTY levels, I'm decorating a garden while so much of the house is untouched. Don't even get me started on the baking storyline. 6 stars just to bake the cake base. Another 3 to bake the house cake. Another 3 to frost it. Another 3 to put it together. Then 2 to drive it to the studio. Then 2 to celebrate the win. Then another 2 to open a present for winning... it doesn't stop! I didn't download the game to bake a cake. I downloaded it to furnish a house! Stop with that nonsense. It took WEEKS to get through that ridiculous storyline. I hope the developers listen to this criticism, because it's really really turning me off to an otherwise fantastic game.
GLu&ATu - Please add a couple of features from your other games
So, after playing for some time now, I see the flaw that caused me to remove a star and ask for an update. In the developers' other games that I play (Gardenscapes and Fishdom), there are events and challenges that occur often, granting rewards and prizes that help keep you going. In Fishdom, there is Herman and the Bathyscaphe, daily gem and coin rewards for feeding fish and cleaning tanks, the Lightning Ray challenges, and often there are Treasure Chest rewards for beating levels. There are also achievement awards, although I suppose the "day completed" bonuses in Homescapes may count like an achievement. In Gardenscapes, there is a Rose growing challenge with treasure rewards and a fireworks league event that offers great prizes. Often you get power ups and unlimited lives for periods of time. This keeps you going in the game. However, thus far in Homescapes, there have been none of these things, and I find myself stuck on hard levels that could really use power ups or extra turns, and no way to obtain more coins or specials without spending money. Since that would be a bottomless pit, due to the never ending nature of these games, I find myself tempted to abandon Homescapes. I still want to help Austin refurb his home. Please update with some of the reward earning events that are used in your other games to help keep us going.
PittiePrincess - Terrible support team
The game is decent. It’s fun and can be a little addicting. The story lines are cute as well. Some of the story items cost way too much compared other games and honestly nothing should cost more than 2 stars, let alone stuff that costs 6. That’s ridiculous and no other game does it.
Speaking of... so when you have to clear 6 game boards to complete a story line task, every one counts, and often you may use a booster for that last piece with your last move. Only on occasion, when the board is NOT MOVING, an airplane will go take out some random piece that has nothing to do with advancing the game. You lose a life, and they start to back you into a corner where you need to use coins. It’s cheating. I contacted Support and their response? Lol “The way the game works.....” sooooo, i understand how the game works, I’m close to level 3,000.... not what I stated the issue is. They never addressed the issue and simply kept saying that I don’t know how to play. They slid me a couple of boosters to “lightening my day”, whatever that is, and even said at that time “this wasn’t our fault but here are a couple of boosters to lightening you day”. Extremely frustrating that they didn’t even acknowledge a possible issue.... not even a “let us look into it”. Whatever.... I still play but I refuse to buy coins. I will maintain the free version and spend my money elsewhere. ✌🏼
BadAssAsh92 - Love this game BUT changes need to be made!
I love this game! I’ve played many games, but this one has become my favorite. Over time though, I am beginning to get frustrated! You only get about 50-80 coins a game after completing the level, but in order to get more chances to play it’s 900 coins for the first 5 extra moves and then goes up to 1200. I don’t even know what’s after that, because it’s just so much! Even with the rewards they grant, you only get 100 coins which is like nothing. You really have to spend money to play this game. I’ve tried to be patient and play the games out without spending money, but many levels you just can’t! I don’t mind spending the money here and there, but it’s so expensive, it doesn’t even make it worth it. You get 1000 coins for .99 and it takes 900 coins to get 5 extra turns. That adds up really quick! Plus it’s even more expensive if you want power ups! I’m not too sure how much more I can continue playing if they don’t make some changes. It’s beginning to add up with how many coins I’ve been buying just to beat rounds. On top of that I believe that there are also sometimes when the board isn’t applying the power ups correctly. It's almost like a glitch or something that’s not working. I’m really hoping they make some changes to this game! Such a shame that it seems they are more concerned about money, than people continuing to play.
Sssf33858583$/ - Is anyone there?
This will be the third review I have wrote and still nothing posted or any response given. Why offer someone to write about your game if you have no intention to post it? I’m sure this one will end up is the same spot as the others, the deleted/don’t care what you have to say trash. The point of every game is to be challenging, what’s the fun if it isn’t. This game however takes challenging to a whole other level! As I’ve said it other post, this is not a game of skill. It’s all based if the game allows the pieces to fall, the boosters to point in the direction needed to win. A blind monkey can play this game because it’s all luck, like a slot machine. Most levels, no matter if they are regular, hard, or super hard take 2-3 lives to beat. I will say, I have on very rare occasion beat a level on the first attempt. Currently I am on level 214 “super hard” I have attempted to beat this level no less than 25 times, maybe more! Challenging 🙄? Let’s change the game to mission impossible 🤣😭! I have spent real money on a package to help. It’s was useless and I went through it in a couple levels. Developers, can you tone it down a bit and let people actually get through the game like games are intended? I know that seems like a lot to ask, but at least consider it before you just delete my message. Thank you for your time and mine I wasted writing this 😂🤣!
Craftgal - Character flaws
I agree w/Luis905..”umm one big issue”. The levels are hard, but they want you to continuously spend money on coins etc.. to try to win or put in an ad about other versions of this game. It gets frustrating and you want to put the game down and never return. Let’s say you’re rewarded with an hour or more of free play, it ticks down from that minute instead of letting you go in and play on your own schedule and let it tick down. Some of us work for a living and may play during our lunch or break, if you activate the free time, it is ticking down and over when you are off work and can play. The creators want you to acquire other versions/themes of the game.. if they’re like this one.. no way I’d get them. Funny that in the garden today while sweeping the butler says how he like to keep the dust out of the carpets there and keeps a clean house ( same thing he says in the house.. you should change the text to match the scenes) the guitar is in the house, but it magically appeared for him to sit on a bench and play it while chastising me about how hard the game must be for me to play. when you lose each life, the look on characters face is like you’re a failure... this doesn’t encourage you to play, you want to avoid that look like the plague. At times it’s disheartening. I will still play, but you lose interest in the story line due to frustration of game levels
BennyBlk - Levels really hard..payout really low
I really like this game and Gardenscapes but it is getting very discouraging to play. The levels are so hard and the payout is so low. I’m deleted the game today because I don’t spend “real” money on games, especially when there isn’t a good return. The amount of coins that are needed to buy things like boosters and lives are crazy high. 900 coins for 5more moves on a level is crazy and then if you want to do it again, it’s 1200! When you only win between 50 and 100 coins ( on a really good round) it takes a really long time to recoup. They are very stingy with giving you boosters and chances to get more coins. I play other games that are very generous with coins and boosters which allows me to play and enjoy the game. Isn’t that what the game should be all about? Challenging levels are one thing, but when it takes so many lives to win a level it’s not fun anymore. I won 2 hours, played constantly for that time and only made it through 2 levels.
Also, when you win 2or 3 hours of free play, it should be put away so I can play when I want to. If I win 3lives on the wheel, it gets put away...I should be able to play an hour at a time when I want to play....I worked hard to win those hours and I should be able to play them. Love the game, but it’s too bad that the developers are really greedy and don’t want us to enjoy their games.
Kai_1 - Could this be my second love?
So I’ve been playing Homescapes for the past couple of months (yes, I said months) and I must say this game I by far one of my favorites and I am finally at a point where can break it down real brief.
Short background about me, I grew up playing the classic game Bejeweled! Which trickles down to all these copy’s of the “traditional match-3 mechanics”, however Homescapes does a beyond amazing job of intertwining this type of game pay with a well-developed storyline! As of this review, I’m currently on level 415, have accumulated about 40 stars, and am on day 6 in the story and have only about 1/5 of the game completed (this is a rough estimate based off of the amount of the estate that I’m making progress in! This is definitely a game that I have been enjoying level by level until completion, from the basic to the super hard (difficulty settings)!
There are also constant twists and turns for each level! Like the developers at Playrix really sat down and thought of a variety of ways to get people like me addicted to the amazingness their minds constructed! This is pure awesomeness! I greatly appreciate this game! It’s relaxing vibe makes it perfect for any time of enjoyment! Playrix! Y’all did your do on this one!
Koala gray - Easy pass
I’ve seen these ads for a long time before deciding to try it out. I deleted it after reaching level 20. The reason I deleted it is because it’s too boring to me. It was interesting fixing up the house but having to use multiple stars for some aspects and even to move to the next day is greedy. The bank I despised. Good premise but it holds coins you earn hostage unless you pay to buy it once you accumulate 3000 or 5000 coins. There is no choice either, you watch your coins disappear. The small mini games shown in the ads are the best part but they are way too few and far between. The majority of this game is playing levels over and over trying to get the next star to fix the never ending repairs. I also found having to use stars to open packages annoying. If I’m getting a gift it should be just. There is some humor and the scenes are colorful which is why i gave it two stars. Had the earning of coins been much higher, the mini games much more prevalent, the bank either free to obtain or at least an option, the limiting of one star per repair and not having to use stars on anything other than repairs I could have seen playing this longer. I tried these match three types of games several times now and always delete them quickly once the repetition of levels hits. If the match three aspect was a minor part rather than 90% of playing these would be tremendous fun, I’d even consider paying for that.
Rhapsody16 - Used to be fun
I’ve been playing this game for a while and am at level 1700+ Full disclosure, I’ve never spent any real money on this game. Not that they’re not working extra hard to make you do it...
When I started playing, it was fun because I always had a chance to win. The kite will do what it’s supposed to and the bombs won’t go and destroy the next move. The rocket with a kite won’t go and clear the row with already a rocket in it, thus ruining 2 rockets.
Decorating wasn’t as hard either. You didn’t need a star to make every call and 2 stars for a rehearsal.
Around level 900 it started getting frustrating and I stopped for a while. A few months ago I started playing and nothing is the same. The power ups are there to ruin your game. One has to depend on luck than tact to win. It’s now designed to eat all your hammers, kites, gloves etc but still won’t let you win. If I was frustrated before, I’m finding it hard to express myself now.
Ofcourse the proportion of coins you win to the stars you earn was always unfair but atleast I knew that in every game there would be some move and a definite chance to win. They want you to buy coins, I get it, they are after all here for the money. But looks like they’re taking away the fun factor away from the game which for me has been the biggest disappointment. This was a good game, very addictive and fun. It’s getting hard to say that that is true anymore.
SolarSis - Bland
Homescapes brings the annoying butler Austin you may (or may not) know from Gardenscapes back to his childhood home. His parents, as empty-nesters, have decided to sell their large estate and move into a smaller, more efficient home - better suited for their needs and season of life. Well Austin, being obviously wiser than they, immediately moves back into his parent’s house and convinces his aging parents to not only stay living in an enormous mansion they can’t possibly keep up with, but to spare no expense at fixing the monolith up. If that part of the story doesn’t fry your bacon, then be prepared for pointless tasks designed to eat up the stars you earn on activities NOT RELATED to repairing the old mansion and the rooms within. The levels require very little strategy; I find the board layout to be purely based on luck and it can take several days or even weeks to beat one, so earning stars to get ahead will truly enslave you to this game. As for the characters; Austin is the know-it-all son, his father a dim-witted buffoon, and his mother has no personality. His relationship with Katherine is uninteresting and ALL other characters are one-dimensional stereotypes. So if any or all of those things appeal to you, download the game. I gave 1 star for it being ad-free and another for the ‘clean’ factor (I can have my young son play and not worry about mature content snuck in). I keep playing thinking it will get better but sadly it does not.
Jenn96$ - Ok at first BUT not fair
This game is fun at first but as you rank up higher and higher the more often u get hard levels. It’s annoying I’ve only had this game for a week and I’m uninstalling it. You need stars to complete tasks and you only get one when u pass the level. As u rank up the more stars u need to complete ONE task it’s not fair. Also I downloaded the game mainly to be able to redecorate the house and once you finish the kitchen you get sent outside to build the garden/ greenhouse. It is the most boring part of the game that takes FOREVER to finish. You can finish a room in 1-3 days of completion. But the outside has taken 6+ days to work on and I finally just gave up because of how many unnecessary tasks you have to complete just to get through one day. Every time u think your finally done with the outside theirs something stupid you have to still do. This game is only fun for a few days after that it’ll just make you want to throw your phone in the garbage. Also the amount of coins you get for each level is unbelievable you should be able to get more the higher you level up but nope they just want you to try to buy their packages. Something no game will ever get out of me. As soon as games start to cheat you into wanting to spend your real money is when it gets deleted from my phone. I recommend finding another game to play unless you have plenty of patience for bull*hit.
Julzj12 - Disappointed
This app is free and is fun at first until you realize that they make you win puzzles before you can complete any action. Including mundane actions like calling someone on the phone or greeting a friend. This wouldn’t be so bad if the puzzles were at least designed more fairly. It seems once you pass a certain level the puzzles of course become get more difficult but they also seem to give the game an unfair advantage over the player. As the levels become more difficult even the boosters seem less effective. Where on prior levels you can get a few boosters and they could help you win the level, but later it takes more than triple the amount of boosters to pass the level and they don’t seem to be as powerful. Some levels are almost not passable without spending actual money to buy enough boosters so you can pass it or unless you just get lucky and pieces fall just right. Even when you do complete a puzzle the amount of coins you win doesn’t seem to match up with the difficulty of that puzzle. Only receiving 60 coins for a puzzle it took 20 times to pass.
Making it feel almost not worth all the times you had to play to pass the single puzzle. All of this made me feel like I was being cheated and the game was no longer fun compared to the reward so I decided to stop playing all together after a few weeks of experiencing the same disappointment.
FlutterbyLady - Must pay $ to be able to advance
I actually love this game, but you end up having to spend $ to advance: It’s easy to play, the “puzzles” that you play to be able to build things for the house are fun, & challenging. But you reach a certain point where you have to have boosters to beat the levels, & because Playtrix only gives you a max of 70 coins for each level beat (a taudry amount considering what things cost in the game), you end up spending your own money to be able to keep playing levels, or to be able to buy boosters to beat the levels. To break it down for you: I’m at level 122 (which is impossible to beat without a booster because of how it is set up), which is about midway through the 5th decoration level in the game (haven’t even broached the upstairs level yet). I’ve already spent $60 on coins/boosters, & I’ve only been playing 2 weeks. Not going to spend anymore $ on this (even though I enjoy it) simply on principle. The rewards for levels are not anywhere close to what they should be, & the amounts you get for what you pay for aren’t enough either. In other games if you spent $20 you would be set for a couple weeks. This game ends up being a days at most because of demand for boosters/coins to the cost ratio. I see this company fizzling out soon because of this. It’s a shame. They have a good game. If the reward system worked like Zynga games then they might last.
MarDan06152006 - Well developed game
I do indeed enjoy playing this game. I play it normally thru out the day. It helps the time go by quickly. The only thing that bothers me is the hard and extra hard part of the game. I realize that it breaks up the monotony, but, I spend days sometimes trying to beat the level. But, it is good that the hard and extra hard are few and far between, so it’s not overwhelming, it’s a good change of pace. And, as others have said, rewards are few and far between as well. Especially with the hard levels, the rewards are just this: your normal level low coin reward is doubled and you are rewarded with one extra star. I know you have to make money in this venture, but, your doing it to the detriment of your customers. There is a reason we play games that say that they are free, it’s because a lot of us do not have the funds to use actual money to progress farther in the game faster then the other players that can afford to use their hard earned money. In conclusion, I think this game is well worth 5 stars, however, I did only give it 4 stars on account of the hard and very hard levels & the lack of well deserved rewards. I think there should be better rewards and it should be a little easier to get stars. Just my opinion for what it’s worth. But, great game!
TriniJanel - Love this game! But you gotta spend money!
I love this game! Super addictive and fun. You can spend hours playing it, HOWEVER... as you increase in levels it starts to become less fun. The boards get harder, naturally, but you still only get 1 star for the Hard and Super Hard boards when you win them. But tasks take upwards of 6 and even more stars to complete. And some tasks are just ridiculous to even warrant a star! Make a call, move an object, can take 2 stars at times!! It makes it extremely hard and tedious to advance in the game. Not to mention the coins, you only get at max about 100 coins depending on what level you beat, but if you want extra moves it 900 coins!!! Ok, you do the math.... when it’s all said and done you have to spend money on extra lives to beat the boards, on coins to advance in the levels and get the stars you need in order to fix things to advance! As the boards get harder we should get more stars, Hard=2 stars, Super Hard=3 stars and so forth, as we advance in the game tasks cost more stars so we should naturally EARN more stars to off set it! Not keep us at 1 star per level, but the higher we go tasks are costing us 6-12 stars PER TASK, come on!! Same with the coins! It’s not fair, and you are forcing people to spend money if they want to continue in the game at a reasonable pace. Love the game, hate the setup! Not spending money on this, they need to change the system!
Rental/Real Estate Hunter - Riding the fence
I love the whole concept of the game, the feeling of accomplishment and pride, lol, as if it were MY home. The ONLY reason I put 3 stars is because the spend v reward is the biggest joke I have ever seen on any game I have played. Period. There isn’t a level you cannot beat with no money involved but it will take you about 4 days of playing the same level. Then you spend astronomical amounts of money to buy the goodies that help you win each level to have them nickel and dime you by making sure at the very last, when you should be able to pick a move that has ALWAYS, with no exception, removed x amount of things in certain patterns or directions, it only works partially. So, guess what? You guessed it! When you have already spent gratuitous amounts of money to win something, that never in a million years makes you feel like you won anything, you have to spend more. My moral to this story is, as much as I like the whole concept of the game, I get so angry and frustrated at their trickery(aka:dishonesty) with their power plays and how they usually work compared to what happens at the end and how the reward system works that I have decided to find a game that I have no problem spending money on but walk away feeling happy and relaxed about how I spent my very little free time that I have and my money that I work very hard d for.
Ashley loves kevin - Has some fatal flaws
As you play the game, things get harder pretty fast. For example, every task around the house goes from costing one star to two. The rewards aren’t sufficient to the amount of boosts being spent on harder levels. Some levels are so hard and waste so many lives that you have to use boosts just to get through it. There should be more levels that don’t take multiple tries to get through. Some of the tasks that the game makes you do are stupid. The game is trying to get you to use all your stars so you have to play more, which is typical, but with the levels so hard, it’s really just a tactic to get people to spend more money. It’s also takes way too long for the lives to reload. It’s like 25mins per life. I really liked this game at the start but the further I’ve gotten, the less I want to continue playing. Instead of throwing in so many different aspects into the puzzle games so soon, they should have waited and made it harder much later. I’m only in the kitchen and I spend on average 3-5 lives on each level. I try not to use boosters because they are so hard to earn. Paying 900coins to get 5 more moves on one level, when each level earns you roughly 50-70 coins (hard levels earn you 100+) is just sad. In conclusion, this game only remains fun for the first 60 levels then gets frustrating. Pretty much a scheme to get consumers to spend a lot of money.
Atxveteran - RNG hell
It’s a fun game most of the time but it seems to be more malicious RNG than a skill game. It’s pretty bad when you start a match with no moves and it has to reshuffle. Power ups can be hit or miss at the start. Towards the higher levels you’ll start off with a very small section and you’ll have to open the rest of the field but you’ll end up wasting 3 or 4 moves before you can even do that. Some levels seem impossible to beat without the RNG gods giving you tons of power ups. You’ll often lose by 1 move which prompts you to use coins to buy 5 more moves. If you don’t have the coins, that’s when they hit you with the pay to win aspect of it. As many other people have said, it often feels like the game is working against you maliciously so you’ll be forced to buy more coins or power ups. It gets extremely frustrating playing the same level thirty times and losing by 1 move over and over. This is the same for both gardenscapes and homescapes (and probably the other games by the same developers). Bottom lines is you can pretty much tell by mid match if you’re going to beat the level or not. If you still have 75% of the objectives to complete and you’ve been forced to waste 3 or 4 moves in a row and you have less than 10 moves left, you’re not gonna win. I usually just quit and start over at that point. No sense continuing if I already know it’s a dead match.
Lhsilly - Homescapes
I liked the game at first but the more you try to play, the more ridiculous and costly it gets. I love all kinds of match 3 games, but the more I try to play both Homescapes and Gardenscapes the more frustrating they get. I believe games should be fun and challening, but come on, this is beyond ridiculous. I looked and read other reviews, a lot of them, nd they all basically say the same thing. I cannot believe Playrix, the developers and makers of some really wonderful games came up with something this impossible to play. The Develpoers REALLY need to pay attention to the reviews. They should really listen and make some serious changes to fix what could be a wonderful game. I think the developers should fix the game so the power ups are on the side so you can choose when to use them, and if you have any left they should be useable on the next level. I think the developers need to really read the reviews and seriously think about making some changes. One change, let us choose when to use our boosts or power ups. Put them on the side and let us be able to use them during a level at nytimei stead of all of them at once. Does anyone know if any of the developers even read the reviews. Why ask us to rate the game and write reviews when it doesn’t seem like the makers of the game are even reading them.
Satansniece - Interesting Game... Can Be Improved
I simply adore Homescapes. It is fun and easy to learn how to play, and it kills time while making us think. I believe the new tournaments are fun, but it needs more. The levels need to make it so more coins can be earned. If I earn the minimum coins per level (50) and play 10 levels, it still isn’t enough to get a retry on a particularly hard level. Now I do think the fact they are called “Hard Levels” makes it better for us to prepare, and definitely the coin amount there is worth it. But in order to pass a level, I spend almost 6-8 hearts if it’s extremely time-consuming and hard. There is still the issue with more prizes. I like the daily bonus, but after the seventh day, it sent me right back to the first day without any prizes. I believe it should be after the 7th day, you get all the prizes from day 1-6 at the same time, and then day 8 and on should have more until you reach every seventh day again. It’s a good way to make people play the game. There also need to be more tournaments that don’t give prizes based off places. I never get first place in the plane tournament, but in the knitting ball one, I got a lot of prizes and it made me feel more encouraged to try. This game is great but definitely needs more to attract more and lose less people.
Ducksindoorways - On Level 1725
So I’ve played this game for a long time. I can fairly say that it is a well-executed game with consistent updates and support. I like the creative side as well as the puzzle side it’s a nice balance. One thing everyone should know unequivocally before beginning, however, is that the developers hate the players. Hate may not even be a strong enough word for it. I could be wrong, maybe it’s impossible to fairly balance a puzzle game but to program it so much in the favor of you losing is... unsurprising considering how often it wants you to purchase things. Now, you don’t have ads in this game, which is nice, and the options to purchase don’t ensure victory (I mean at all), so in a sense the game is consistent and there’s some comfort in that. The reward system is pretty rough, it does sometimes feel like an endless attempt to wear you down. You will rage quit from time to time, or put it down for a couple months, but this is a casual game. Whereas other games make me feel as if they’ve earned my business, I find the challenge of this one is seeing how far I can go without spending any money, because it tries so hard. It’s my tiny moral victory. But hey, great time waster so if that’s what you’re going for, you’ll likely stay engaged and distracted from your reality and isn’t that what we all want anyways?
De0lan - False Advertising - Fun in spite (for some)
I gotta give this game a somewhat low score just on the principle of its disingenuous marketing. If you’ve seen any ad for this game then you’ve probably saw the “pull the the pins” type of gameplay presented to draw you in. That’s NOT what this game is. That type of gameplay is so small & almost insignificant that it’s pretty shady for them to put that at the forefront of their advertising. If you had to pay upfront for this game, I’m pretty sure there would be grounds for a lawsuit; it’s THAT bad.
What this game is centered on is the much more generic Candy Crush, “match the tiles” type gameplay. The reason I don’t give it a 1-star is because they have actually made this generic premise fun, and put some admirable twists into the formula (at least I think. I don’t play many mobile games and especially match tile types). Interesting challenges, creative power-ups you can make if you’re smart, genuinely challenging puzzles (in a fun way), admirable special effects & sound design. Doesn’t SEEM to try to force its way into your wallet (from the 12hrs I’ve put into the game thus far) in terms of gameplay, but it does do plenty of in-game marketing.
If this game was honest about what it really was, I’d give it 4-stars. But I think A LOT of people will go into this game expecting one thing and getting another, and I think that is a significant knock against the game.
Libra34 - Homescape
The game is very fun to play and I’d play it more often but I feel the game should allow you to send more life requests then once a day and you should be able to receive more life request more then once a day also when you play a super hard level and beat it you should receive at least 3 stars not one especially when it’s so hard to beat and on a hard level maybe 2 stars and a normal easy level 1 star especially when it takes all your lives away just to beat a super hard level and takes days to beat because you can’t ask for more lives or receive more lives then once a day so it makes me not interested in the game. It’s also funny cause how I started playing this game I was given a false advertisement showing that it was a guessing game of what I should do when something goes wrong and the game is nothing like the advertisement but I played anyway just to see if eventually it would lead to that and nothing yet so I was disappointed. So I stopped playing for a while and just started playing again I’ve grown to like the game even better then soda crush and I absolutely love that game and this game has grown on me and I’d play more and give a better review and give it a 5 star if you could fix it adjust some of these things to make the game more fun and interesting
SabinFFIII - Subpar brilliance.
Most of the reviews I’ve read have been accurately stated, this game is a typical game while at the same time being uniquely special. The creators found a concept and design that are both fun and a great way to entertain oneself when needed. However the game like the majority of games in countries without micro transaction laws, is heavy on giving users the need to spend real money and light on actually rewarding users for their hard work and commitment. All in all one could do a lot worse, if you can manage to avoid spending real money on an app, intend to use this game merely to entertain yourself as a time killing option, or simply don’t mind spending real money and enjoy these types of games, then this is at least a 3 out 5, in my opinion it would easily be a 4 or 5 out of 5 if the game didn’t drag out every little detail possible while exploiting potential monetary gains. However, this is 2020 and unless you live in a country where micro transaction laws exist, then you’re completely use to the modern manner of app/console/computer gaming where product quality and consumer satisfaction have taken a far back seat to profitable gains, because let’s face it, business innovation has died and flogging a dead horse for everything one can get out of it is the only skill modern business has left.
Dave H F - Initially Fun, But Frustrating
I downloaded Homescapes because of the ads for it I saw on Words With Friends. The ads mostly show the lead character, Austin the Butler, in a sticky situation and the player has to pull levers to get him out of it. The actual game, however, is mostly improving the large house owned by Austin’s parents. The sticky situations are called “Austin’s Bad Dream and in 35 levels, I have only been able to see a few of them.
The game is mostly playing a form of Candy Crush to earn stars in order to improve the home. That part is not so bad. The music is pleasant and the game is a relaxing time waster, at least initially. I don’t mind using the earned stars to replace furniture or a rug, but as the game goes on, you have to use the stars to do just about anything like answering the door, unpacking a TV, or even starting a new day. And once you’re out of stars, you can’t do anything else until you have won more candy crush games and earned more stars.
You earn one star from winning each candy crush game no matter how difficult the game is. Win in one round, earn one star. Win after 20 rounds, earn one star. The idea of course is to get the player to purchase items to play longer. I get it. Most games I have seen do the same thing, but they don’t ramp up the difficulty so quickly.
Gia.nna24 - Great and entertaining game but...
Honestly, I love this game. It is very entertaining and sometimes I spend hours in a day playing it. The levels seem to get really difficult after you start renovating the third room. I really find it so frustrating that we have to wait 30 minutes for each life to come back. Also, the amount of moves given in each level is ridiculous. Sometimes, you need just 2 more moves to pass the level and you can’t because you’re out of moves. Then, if you want more, you have to pay 900 coins for only five more moves. And if you don’t have the money, you have to forfeit and loose the game. Other times, you can join competitions and get really cool power ups. If I get stuck on one of the levels in the challenges, I loose all my prizes and earned money. The point of the game is to be fun and decorate a house, which honestly is my favorite part of the game. Don’t get me wrong, the matching part of the game is so fun too, I just hate the fact that you have to wait so long to get lives and some of the tasks they ask you to do are just ridiculous. As an example, if I got a cat in the game, it says I need to give a star just to name it. I mean that’s ridiculous. The game is so fun, and after reading a lot of reviews I do think the game should be updated and should fix these problems.
Joyful122 - Almost 5 Stars, addictive & fun, but...
I don't have complaints at all about game play or rewards like some others do. I feel it's challenging, but not frustrating, very satisfying. I like gameplay more than Gardenscapes, which I still play as well. My only complaint is one others have had as well, this game is called HOMEscapes, but for weeks the story line has me upgrading the garden when I've only renovated 3 rooms in the gigantic mansion. Just when I thought I was finished in the garden, the story line STILL has more garden tasks. I really want to see more of the mansion! My daughter played this game as well and mostly stopped playing when the garden renovation began because she wanted to renovate the home. I can see how those with less patience would easily give up if they want home renovation instead of the garden. I'm on level 454 and have only renovated the butlers room, great room, kitchen, and stairs! Maybe the creators of the game could give players a choice on which room or area to continue with? Otherwise, I love the gameplay. Just stick to the idea of home renovation instead of branching to other story lines for so long. Don't mind it for a few levels, but veers off way too long.
Errrrrn - Not as advertised
I’m rating this game a 2 because the ad that I saw for this game was NOT at ALL what this game turned out to be. BUUUUT having said that, I have become so addicted to this game, checking in on it several times a day and can’t wait for my lives to regenerate and LOVE it when I finally win a particularly difficult level. I do wish that the rewards were a little more generous. And that things didn’t cost so much gold I mean 900 for only 5 more moves! That just kills my stash! But I keep playing so 🤷🏼♀️
It kills me to admit that I have spent money to buy more gold coins in order to keep playing or buy more boosts, and to buy the gold is $5.99 which even though i paid for it I feel is a bit steep. I wish that more of the gold you win for beating each level went to you instead of into your piggy bank, that is very frustrating!! But here I am still playing. I might have to delete it to spare my own piggy bank. ***I finally had to delete it*** I refuse to throw away any more money on something so frivolous but kept getting stuck on these ridiculously hard levels with no helps and not enough gold to buy any more. :( they really need to lower the cost of things and give you more gold when you win a level. I play Toon Blast now and love it have not needed to spend money the rewards I get for playing are enough to keep going and it’s so fun!
KokoroNoTakara - Greedy Developers
The developers of these kinds of games don’t care about giving us quality games, they just want to say they are making the games “challenging and fun” but are really just wanting us to dole out tons of real money to line their greedy pockets... Challenging and fun does not mean rob me blind just to get through some levels on a stupid game that looked awesome but was deceiving... I am having to use all my energy 3-5 times refilled just to get through one level!!! That is 15-25 energy for ONE FREAKING LEVEL!!! Some of these levels are near impossible and the developers don’t care to listen to our complaints since there are so many of us who give in to buying our way through the game we cannot otherwise get through... I have already uninstalled this pathetic excuse for a game... If I could develope a game similar to this and Matchington Manor/Gardenscapes, even poor as I am I know I wouldn’t be trying to rip people off... These games could be good and I would be willing to pay for packages but not just to get through levels... The ratio of money we earn in comparison to what things cost is just ridiculous... But like I said the developers of these games do not care about anything but lining heir filthy greedy pockets and I for one will not aid in doing so when I can play actual gun games that don’t require real money just to progress... Buying packages should be when you want to buy limited time house items or something...
Lmnop.123 - Are you listening
I’m sure this will fall on deaf ears! Before I downloaded this app I read all the reviews! Everything everyone said about it is so true, yet you do nothing about it! I think a game should be fun and challenging but not frustrating! There’s not enough moves especially when a square has to be unblocked two or three different times. The levels can be beat but it takes way too long to beat them sometimes. Then you get one star for all your work! I like the idea of decorating the house that’s why I got the app! Instead I get to use my stars to feed the cat, call a taxi, or answer the door! So frustrating!! Please listen to your reviewers!
I’m starting to hate this game! Sooooo frustrating! I may have to delete it! Sad because it could be so much fun! 😕
I see the developers still really don’t give a crap. After reading so many complaints on here and the developers never even answer one of them. I am not using my stars on putting up decorations in the kitchen. Dumb! Why have so many rooms when you can’t get into them? Ridiculous! I really only play it when I absolutely have nothing else to do because I’ll never get to really decorate the house. I thought that was the point of the game. Has anyone completely decorated the whole house? I think it’s impossible. What’s the point of the game if you can’t finish it! Oh, and I absolutely refuse to spend any money on this game. I’d delete it first!
AlexLB3 - Who has time to spend weeks trying to beat a single level
I really enjoyed this game initially. The puzzles and all were really fun. But I just don’t like the fact that every little thing you do cost multiple stars and so you have to complete multiple levels to do the simplest things that honestly shouldn’t cost a star at all. Really thought the game would be more focused on designing the house. Not the garden or paying attention to what’s going on in town.
Additionally, I understand the game is supposed to be challenging. But who honestly has time to spend weeks trying beat a single level to continue on with the game. Some levels are literally so difficult that the user ends up frustrated and just closing the game out for the day. Sure I’ve spent a fair amount on money trying to beat those select levels. And I see some user reviews that talk about spending a huge amount of money. But who honestly has time to devote that much energy into a game as well as waste money trying to get through a level just to get stuck and have to spend more money again later on a higher level. Really think the developers should have an option to just skip one if they can see you have tried 100 times and still can’t get past. It just ruins the game if you can never progress any further.
Elledee396294 - Good for a FEW FREE hours of fun
I knew this game was too good to be true. It was super fun and addicting, and I’m not even the game type. It’s much like another popular similar game that had people hooked for hours—but with a cool twist that added to the appeal. As you complete levels, in a Sims style, you are helping a character rebuild his childhood home. It’s fun seeing it go from shambles to chic as you play! I thought, wow, this is free?! (I noted the lack of ads and waited for it...) All things that seem too good to be true usually (always) are. After a certain point, you need money to buy coins in order for passage of the levels to be possible. It IS possible to pass them, but only after several tries, and your tries are limited to “lives” that you must buy or wait minutes/hours to reload...Sound familiar? I refuse to fork out money for monetary units in a fictitious world. I’d rather pay a flat rate and just have a more accessible game, if that makes sense. I just can’t justify buying “coins” or “stars” or “hearts” or whatever it is the game uses as barter. So, with that, back to my real life, and I’ll probably play this every once in awhile while sitting in a waiting room or something like that. Like the other game I’m alluding to, this will inevitably be deleted and forgotten about, but it was good for a few solid hours of fun. :)
An over a year long player - New advertisement is misleading
I’ve been playing for over a year or more, and have gotten to even form a team with people I know Overall I can say it has relaxing music, beautiful graphics and kinda boring and challenging yet nice gameplay the events keep people engaged so good job on that. The thing is, i’ve been seeing new advertisements all over the internet of fairly crappy ads that trying to get you to engage in the game. Keep in mind, I’ve been playing the game before these low quality advertisements. And honestly, If I’ve never played the game before, I would not probably click on the ad or get it at all based on the low quality ads I see. I would assume the low quality and slow ads I see mean the game is just like that. Even though the whole game is not even represented in the ad, I would have no clue. Also, the cover or thumbnail icon of the app is a low quality image too, I’d assume it was one of those games with ten million ads when in actuality it’s so much better. For the mini game, its ok, but I really would suggest bringing up the graphics of it to match everything else in the game. Game developers, please change your advertisement strategy. The advertisement looks cheap and is really misleading where as the actual game is so much different from that.
Andrea Godines - Fun but frustrating
So I been playing for almost a year now and I’m on the 1000+ levels. It’s fun but it totally clickbait me on Instagram with the little games that I haven’t seen once after downloading. I’ve gotten so frustrated so many times I had to stop playing for a couple of days because the levels get so hard you need god to help you and not boosters. Sometimes the normal levels are harder than the hard ones. Not only that but you start by collecting 1 star per game to having to pass multiple levels for one task, which can take 3 stars per task when it used to be 1 Star per task. And I hate when you’re remodeling a room and at of nowhere something happens in another room you have to fix. Like, everything is supposed to be new, why are they making me waste my stars on a room I had already finished ? And 5 lives isn’t enough! Either give me more lives or make them take less than 30 minutes each to reload. Oh and lastly if you’re getting a gift for infinite time let us choose when we can use it. I shouldn’t have to waste it because I had work or class. Sometimes you can’t play for 2 hours at that very second. Your girl has a life too you know.
Milo wonderboy - Fun matching game with a little extra
The match game itself feels pretty comparable to others, what I enjoy though is that beating a level allows you to make transformations. Just an interesting spin to make the game a little more addictive. The little side quests like trophy challenges and the parrot gifts are super helpful. However I will say sometimes you are gifted 30 min unlimited game play and you don’t really have an option of when to use it. So if I am getting in a quick game on a break or before dinner and I am gifted one of those it goes to waste if I can’t continue to play for an extra 30 min. Not going to lie, at those moments It really is frustrating because you get only 5 lives and the regeneration rate is slow. In addition the buy rate for items feels a little high. As an example to buy an extra 5 moves at the end of a tough level is 900 coins. You maybe get 55 coins for beating a level. So you have to tear through 18 levels to earn enough to buy that extension. It actually de-incentivizes me to buy a package because it never really feels like you are getting a deal. That being said if you can play and not get frustrated when you get stuck on a level for days, or are willing to pay for buy ups this game rocks.
....2020J0J0....2020 - Ehhhh
I LOVE this game but it gets boring when I get stuck on a level it kinda takes all the fun out of it when they make these super hard levels that are almost impossible to beat. I wish that we could get more than one star for the super hard levels and only one star for the easy levels to at least make it worth the headache. Overall, I really do enjoy the concept it’s fun to renovate the house and the graphics of the game is very well done. I will change my 3 stars to 5 stars when you guys can change the difficulty of some of the levels. It’s literally almost impossible to beat some of them and it’s very frustrating. I keep comparing it to candy crush which is my all time favorite game and the difference between the two is that candy crush gives you WAY more incentives for beating levels and gives you the opportunity everyday to win free power ups their version is a lot more fair in my mind. Also, I wish there was way more mini games as well since that’s what made me install the game in the first place. All in all, like I said it is very fun but the developers need to change the difficulty on some of the levels before everyone just stops playing this game. Literally no one on my team is EVER online so I can’t even get free lives from them. 🤷🏻♀️🌝
ShelliFrances - Not the same game as ads
Don’t get me wrong, the actual game is enjoyable enough (or just frustrating enough to get through the levels of the puzzles), but the game “Homescapes” in the ads, shows that the game is choosing between options to solve a challenge the characters face (ie: chainsaw the door vs pick the lock with a paper clip, plunge a backed up toilet vs blow it up, etc.), but that isn’t anywhere in the actual game. The levels with soap bubbles or oil spreading while you try to keep it at bay while solving the actual puzzle is ridiculous and next to impossible. Only getting 5 tries at a time to solve a puzzle like that (unless you get a random surprise “reward” of 30-60 mins, or a few hours of unlimited play) is frustrating beyond words. ESPECIALLY when, if you don’t have time to stop your day to use that surprise time, it goes away. The clock on that time should stop when you log off to live life, and continue when you have time to return to the game. I think people would play more if they didn’t cut you off at 5 tries at a time. I know I would. I’d really like to know which game is the actual “problem solving” game they advertise.
Blues Heavy - Money Grab
After playing this game for awhile you realize you cannot get anywhere in this game without spending money. You begin to realize rather quickly that you will be one or two moves away from completing a board so you should buy more coins to extend play in order to complete the board. The game will also provide these help pieces such as a plane, bomb or spinning disc ball to help complete boards. These pieces are a hoax as they do not have as much of an effect on the game play as they would lead you to believe. There is some strategy involved but for the most part it’s seems you often beat boards when you spend money otherwise it becomes a slow tedious and often unfulfilling task. If you step back from the idea of winning a couple of rounds and helping to restore the property and truly examine this game you will see that it is close to impossible, if not mind numbing, to try and win without spending money. This game was masterfully designed to hide the spend but the boards and the program itself seems to play into spending and spending often to get anywhere.
Just be prepared if you want to get anywhere in this game and you like to win quickly you will need to spend significant money. If you are content to play a couple of levels now and again and you can care less about completing tasks then you can play this game for free.
Pug Mom of 2 - Amazing until it becomes very frustrating
This game is really amazing. I’m not even going to say how much I’ve spent on this game to get to advance quicker and renovate the spaces even faster. The story line is cute, the characters are enjoyable, and you’re actually very motivated and excited to advance and fix up the areas. HOWEVER, you reach a point in the game where it is impossible to win any level without boosters or spending coins to get some extra turns, and that really becomes no fun. You also start competing in challenges with other players and, since I was always given the “Hard” or “Super Hard” levels (as they are called in the game) during challenges, I rarely did well, and always dropped in rank. Not that it matters or that I really cared, but one more way to feel frustrated with this game. Also, this is not the “Gardenscapes” game, but you’re forced to spend a VERY long time renovating the greenhouse and outside. I really wanted to get back to the inside of the house, but it’s not an option since you have to go in order of the story and where the areas open up for you to work. I have uninstalled this game. I refuse to spend any more time or money on it, but I am bummed about it. I would have loved to keep playing and renovating, but not with how impossible the levels become. Save your time and money and don’t get sucked in!!
RonaldsLady - Good & Bad
There’s a lot I like about this game. Specifically each round gives you a challenge and I love to always test my mind. I like that beating the rounds gives you stars which in turn help you build up the mansion and property.
What I find annoying and has made me look for another game is the fact that sometimes there are “festivals” or “events” that your stars go towards which temporarily decorate the mansion. This to me is pointless and doesn’t contribute to the actual upgrades so it feels like those stars are wasted. I don’t care about the “flower festival.” I don’t want my stars wasted on the temporary decoration of the mansion with pointless flowers for this festival. I want my stars to go towards things that matter like unlocking rooms or pieces of the property. When the stars are wasted on these things it makes me feel like I’m no longer progressing in the game and I get bored. Especially because I actually put money into the game so I’m not a F2P. So yes, my actual money is being wasted here.
I get there’s a story line that’s to be followed but I feel like many of these things should be reviewed. Why am I paying for the festivals and other events? That’s not my goal. My goal is to build up the property. So these festivals and events shouldn’t be taking stars. Still add them as part of the story line without taking away stars and the main objective.
Jcysxp - slow & also the tile thingies need to match
the game is ok, it’s time consuming and entertaining but the storyline is so dumb and annoying like i don’t need to know what grandpa thinks buddy. and the process is so slow like i have to wait and tap and read storyline (i tap over it/skip it) but it’s still slow. like why can’t i just press on the furniture and choose a style and it spends a gold star on it? pls make a settings where i can remove storyline nd make the game faster. and also when one of the color thingies fall down, like say 5 blue ones fall down, they don’t make the world orb thingy. they make a stupid 3 thingy and leave 2 blue ones left. fix that. it’s so annoying. i just had a 6 in a row nd it only became an paper airplane. also when one horizontal power up thing, when i use it it clears the path right, but say if i has a box and a box with stripes, it would only clear the box and make the box with stripes a regular box. even if i have 2 in that same row. making one horizontal thing have an effect and not make the other one have an effect. that’s wrong. fix that. and we should be able to position where the flying paper airplanes come out of. it’s messed up a lot of my rotations before. like say i was just about to swipe a blue into a 4 match up, so turning it into the globe thingy, but the paper airplane HAD TO FRIGGWN GO TO THE BLUE ONE which made it not match up. FIX IT. IT IS SO ANNOYING
Hello.html i love iD tect camp - Fun with a few minor issues
Don’t get me wrong, I love this game, but it seems a little slow. Like in the beginning when I was trying to repair the entry hall, the can of paint spilled. I know that it only took 1 star to clean it up, but really? That part was a waste of coding and time for one little thing that they don’t need, and it was annoying. I just started playing, and I already like it, but I also see that it will be a little stubborn and slow at certain times. And in Austin’s room, when your done with it and everything looks new, there’s a dusty old desk that doesn’t go with the room, and I felt like I should replace it, but I can’t. There were a few more parts that didn’t need to be there, but they put them there. Like when Austin’s dad stomps on the floor and breaks it, he they didn’t have to do that. Austin would have repaired it anyway. I am also confused about when Austin got to the house and went into his room and instead of a bed, there was a couch. Where did he sleep? Also, if nobody had lived in the house for years, why where the clothes on the statues not dusty? If you make another game from another game then shouldn’t you mention it? I mean it said nothing about Gardenscapes. I liked the game, but it had a few issues.
Noydbsodropdead - I agree with others....
I changed my review on this game! Don’t waste your time starting to play! Once you get into the higher levels you cannot get enough boosters unless you spend a lot of money to have them! Please don’t waste your time! The rest of the review is correct. Except you can never reach anyone to express your dissatisfaction with this game! The game is great, it’s fun and challenging however the coins you are able to make are way off to the game. I know you need to make money but come on. We all don’t have hundreds of dollars to waste on games. I think you are still money hungry and need to adjust the coin to win ratio. I like most of the games but some are just plain stupid! Unless you have all kinds of boosters or all kinds of coins (money) there are some levels that are almost impossible to win! Well here it is the first of the year and with the new update I see nothing has really changed. Money hungry! What would be nice and cost you nothing is to be more like CANDY CRUSH SAGA! At least with those you get to choose when to use the boosters! Not always at the first! Putting boosters in at the first in most of your levels is a waste!
Well I quit for a while and I think others did too because it’s more fun now! At least for the moment, I raised my rating. We will see....
Chelseealee92 - Addictive. Just be prepared to spend a TON of money
This game has a great concept but it’s clear that all this company wants is for its players to spend as much money as possible. As the levels get harder you’re forced to pay for power ups because you have limited moves OR you spend money on more coins because you run out of lives. Each level you get a measly 50-70 coins depending on how well you do the level and one star. The more grand the tasks that Austin makes you do however, you need more than 1 star per task or else you can’t progress. You potentially end up spending a lot of money to finish a level or a task. It’s extremely frustrating. I’ve been looking for a game like this forever but I’m deleting it because the concept is getting ridiculous. The game adds more and more obstacles in each puzzle making it even more difficult to finish it in the 25 moves allotted. It’s a lot of work for little reward. If you’re going to make us only have 5 lives then give us unlimited moves or vice versa. Let users watch ads to give us stars or something along those lines. Give us more coins per levels and let the coins pay for each task with the stars being extra rewards. But I know none of these suggestions are what the company wants because they’ll lose money and this review will not be read anyways. I’m deleting this game. Sorry for realizing how money hungry you guys are. Despicable.

WeW29 - Addictive ‘gem-swap’ type puzzle with storyline
I’m over level 1300, so fairly committed and long-time player. I agree with other reviewers that it’s a fun and challenging game, great for some time-out. Core characters live in a large home, that resembles a boutique hotel. As you progress through the levels players have the opportunity to restore and decorate the rooms within. The roving pet cat is an adorable addition, and the ‘cheesy’ storyline is quite entertaining. The structure is genius, and ability to join teams, have lighthearted interaction and the chance to win team prizes is a much-appreciated bonus. Most of the puzzles hit the ‘sweet spot’ between challenge and victory. The only thing I’m resenting is the ‘alarm clock’ levels, where you have to match gems containing a count-down. Once any one of the timers on the clock-gems hits zero, it’s game over! A less-severe punishment would redeem it. I actually don’t mind being stuck on a level for days if game-play is enjoyable - inevitable conquer is sweet - but there is nothing enjoyable about the rip-off alarms. Ugh. Would have been five stars otherwise... If there are too many levels with alarms I can see it will change my mood for the game, which may not be a bad thing, considering it’s been so addictive. Overall well done and worth giving it a go!
JEM.b93 - Bad out weighs the good.
This game first off falsely advertises the true nature of the game. It presents as a multiple choice game but after downloading it’s another match 3 gems game.
I looked past that and continued to play even spending my own money on thyme game as I grew to enjoy it.
The game makes it very hard to enjoy after the first few easy levels. You need stars to progress in the game which can be earned by beating levels, it’s 1 star per level. Then the stars are often used for useless things as in greeting guests, calling the parents a taxi, starting new days, feeding the cat. These things make me resent the game as levels get harder and harder and you have no choice but to use the stars for something that does not benefit the point of the game fixing the house up.
Furthermore when receiving a gift of unlimited hearts you have no choice when to open the gift and use it so too bad if you’ve opened it before you’re about to sleep or on a lunch break and have to go to work and it ends up being a compete waste. The game needs to give an option of when these can be opened so you can get the full use out of them.
Again I like the game and will continue to play for now but each day I am losing interest. I was once spending money on this game but it’s getting more and more difficult to enjoy when your efforts are used on pointless things not used for the house and cannot use the unlimited hearts when you’re not busy.
Lissssssa197888 - Love the game, but........
Being stuck on a level for a week at a time gets pretty annoying!!!! I could see this being one of my favourite games. I am absolutely addicted to Gardenscapes, and once you get used to the slight differences in play with this one, it is fun. But the time it takes you to get through some of the levels is ridiculous!!!
I do miss the daily spin that Gardenscapes has. Maybe if we had more access to bombs, etc it would make the game a little easier. I’ve been stuck in the kitchen now for a week, and on one level for about 3 days now. And a lot of the times you don’t even get close to finishing. Every 2-3 moves you run out of moves, the board resets... and it is like that for your whole 5 lives!
$900 for 5 more moves is a lot, and I appreciate that you can watch ads to get money.... because sometimes getting the 5 extra moves... and then another 5 more is the only way to get through a level.
I’m not asking for every level to be simple and easy... but a level to be achievable would be a bonus!!! I’ll give it a bit more time before I throw my hands up and surrender!
Zombie king1369 - To expensive
I have waited 2years before I started playing again, I was hoping for some changes but I can see there hasn’t been, your still greedy ,it’s a shame because it is a beautiful game but so expensive, I find myself spending between $5 and 24$ every couple of days, every second puzzle can cost up to 5000 gold coins to pass, the cost of the power ups is a joke, over 900gold coins per power up and how the hell is that possible to afford when we win between 50 and 140gold coins, it’s not, so we have to pay real money to move forward, also I go through lives fast and again have to use real money, look I understand that is the point, that’s how u make ur money but come on let me enjoy the house, I want to restore it but I can’t afford to spend over 60$ a week on this, I’m happy with buying the game out right like you do an 80$ PS4 game , or even 20$ a week I don’t mind that , that’s reasonable, as long as I can watch my house grow . but seriously i can’t move forward without buying power ups or lives, it just takes the fun out of it ,I also tried Gardenscapes and the same thing there , sorry but it looks like I’ll have to quit like I did a couple of years back.
Amy1763 - so annoying!!!
at the start i really liked the game...i still do but i think it lost its purpose. i got the app because of an advertisement on another game, but it was so misleading. the homescapes ad on the other game, showed someone choosing choices when a tap in the bathroom started leaking. when i downloaded it i thought it would be a choices game, but no...it was just when of those boring match 3 games, like candy crush. SO TOTALLY CLICKBAIT!!! i started to play it and really got addicted because it was fun...but the levels quickly got hard. level 12 was really hard and it took me many tries to beat it. in the game you get one star on completing a level and it goes toward renovating the house. but it’s so annoying as you only get one star on the regular, hard and super hard levels and sometimes it takes 2-3 stars to do the simplest tasks. and sometime you use stars to do the stupidest things like feed the parrot and clean up the cats mess and put the parrot back in it’s cage??and you also have to spend stars on doing chores for the butlers parents, like i’m sorry but the parents don’t do anything for me. you have to spend a star on calling the cab for them, but seriously can’t they just call the cab themselves???and not use my precious stars that i worked oh so hard on grtting???. i don’t want to use the stars that i worked very hard for to feed the parrot. overall, do not get this game, candy crush is better.
JulzyBBY - It's a good game...but there are a few downsides
It is highly addictive, and I love the variety of power ups, and unique levels. However, considering the significant jump in how difficult the levels got so soon, it is a downfall. Not that I don't expect a challenge, but considering lives take 30 minutes to recharge each, if you attempt one level and have to repeat it over and over, it is tiresome. Also, if you want to continue a level 900 coins is a lot, especially when with each level you are only getting around 50-80 coins in return, and that is if you manage to pass in the first place. I really like the concept, and I am sure this isn't an issue for people who pay to play the game, but it is a bit too much.
I have been enjoying the updates and daily reward, that's fantastic!!!
However, I have just reached level 154, a level that I have played now over 20 times with no luck (not even close to passing the level). On trying to find tips on completing this level it used to be a 50-50 level where people use nearly all of their moves to achieve a pass, and now it is 70-70. I had the rainbow ball three times, and I put it on the red bow and it still was not enough to collect enough of the items I needed during the level. How!! I am not going to pay to complete levels.
Fran geldo - I AM SO FRUSTRATED!
So I saw the ads for this game constantly and it looked really fun so I got it, and i was completely mislead by the false advertising. But I still continued as it was still entertaining. But I didn’t expect it to be a bad version of candy crush. If I wanted to play candy crush I would be playing that. The most ridiculous part of this whole game is that you play these levels that get quite hard to only get 1 star, whilst most things take 1 or more and then you have to repeat the whole process. Yet I still ignored thinking oh I’m sure I’ll start getting daily rewards, you know as it’s so annoying to get stars, but no! And then I thought maybe the harder levels will reward with 2 stars so you don’t have to repeat it again and again and again, but no again! Anyways the game itself is addicting I must add but after a certain point I would just rather go and play anything else! I think if a few of these things were changed the game would be a very fun game. I also read a few other reviews and know I’m not alone in thinking this, so I think it would be a good idea to 1, not false advertise, and 2, listen to what everyone is saying in their reviews. Don’t mean to be rude but just thought I’d share my review! Thank you!
Beethoven1234 - Has some good aspects but . . .
I started playing for the interest in rebuilding the home. However it quickly became evident that this wasn’t going to happen any time soon. 1 star per task seemed reasonable but then it became 2 stars per task then some are 3. And some tasks are divided into 4 x 2 stars to complete: it takes the fun out of the whole goal of the game. And I now find that I’m playing the level games for satisfaction gained in completing each level and I’m not interested in how much there is to do in each room. And while we’re on that rant, why does cost 2 stars just roll over from one day to the next?
The cost of continuing turns in a level is rather excessive. 900 coins for 5 turns then 1200 coins then . . . I forget what ripoff amount is next because I don’t play it. I know the developers/owners of the app want to make money but the increase should be linear, not exponential.
Yes, I know that I don’t have to play but a fairer balance of cost per achievement might see me play a it longer and spend a bit more.
Boredboredbored75 - Homescapes
I love this game and play it far too much but it is frustrating that there are no incentives or daily rewards to help you get through the difficult levels. I’ve been stuck in the kitchen forever and can not continue because I have been stuck on level 183 for nearly a week. The only way I can see to get through this level is to purchase items to assist and then keep extending the game by purchasing more moves when you run out. I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of money on this game and am unable to spend anymore. Although I love the game so much, I am becoming far too frustrated about not being able to complete the level without spending money. Every other game I play has daily loyalty rewards and special events which enable you to win random prizes or money amounts. If you add these things in that game would be 5 stars and I’d never be able to put my phone down. I’d even be willing to continue to pay money for items but without the game giving anything back on a daily basis I refuse to do this. Sorry to say but I’m becoming one very bored and frustrated player and can not see me continuing with this game for much longer
Karen_# - I rate 7/10 😭
I really like this app but it’s super annoying how you have to download new places. And I am up to upstairs and it took me two minutes to download and most of the time it was stuck on %38 and %82! And also why do you make super hard levels? Hard levels are ok but most people hate Superhard. But mostly can you plz fix the stars. Like get the parrot back in it’s cage??? Call a cab for Austin’s parents? That wastes all the hard work on stars plz also try for people to get 2 or 3 stars if they beat a hard or superhard level. It’s pointless if you get 22 moves and win it but get one star. And can you give more moves? In all playrix games. Once I had to get 34 red bow ties and it only gave me 15 moves and I was stuck Forever on it! My friend is up to lvl 364 and she wants to ask if u can also make more than 30 players in a team because most of them on Kitten Club that she is on never even tries and they are basically off 24/7. She asks for 40-45 in a team. And she wants it to be only people who are actually on most of their life like her. lol 😇😇. Plz fix 🤩
Jelena_7 - Could be better
I downloaded the game because I saw an ad for it on another game I was playing, I had been seeing the ad for a while and finally decided to download it, however, the game itself isn’t so much about what you see on the ad it’s about renovating a home. I played the game for a bit, there’s too much dialogue, you spend a lot of time reading and then the rest of the time you spend playing something similar to a candy crush game just to earn only one star to pay to replace a rug, or furniture or paper the walls etc i would prefer to play more of the games you see on the adverts, less of the candy crush type game, I would prefer less dialogue and for the game to move a bit faster in terms of working on the rooms etc. I do like that the game allows you to change your selection for example if you’ve selected a blue arm chair and you change your mind you’re able to change it at any time and I like the general idea of the game I like being able to turn something old and dirty into something new and clean.
Melly54321 - Super fun, you can play free
I’ve been playing this game for around 2+ years fairly regularly and am up past level 4500.
Some levels are obviously harder than others but the more you practice, the more you learn techniques to pass these tricky levels, although sometimes it’s just luck. I like the extra challenges where you can win lots of bonus prizes because I have NEVER spent a dollar on this game and never will because I want to pass the levels myself. I think that’s a rabbit hole one can easily fall into and before you know it you’re buying your way through the game.
Yes it’s addictive but you can stop whenever you like for a week or two and pick up where you left off. I like that the further you get into the game the challenges don’t cost more, initially I was concerned I’d end up needing 5+ stars to finish one challenge- it’s pretty consistent and the story keeps moving pretty quickly.
Loonychik - Enjoy game but....
I began this game because of the ad and thought you had to build the house before you faced scenario challenges. I have finished the house and instead of scenario challenges there is another house to build. Lost interest in game now as it is not what is advertised and tired of how the levels are all getting ridiculously hard with no increased reward both in stars and coins won.
I have enjoyed this game, even with the frustrations and have considered many times to delete. The most annoying thing is the glitches I keep experiencing on the occasional purchases of extra coins when I’m am tired of playing the same level and never passing. I’m certain this is designed like this to encourage expensive purchases. I have been charged for coins I have not authorised or charged more than once for one purchase. Currently I have been charged 5 times for one purchase and note I never receive the coins! I then have to go through the dispute process which takes 48 hours and when it’s rejected I have to dispute that decision which is another 48 hours. Very annoying and if it continues I’ll delete the game. Please sort this out!!
Hlsteere2122 - Okay game
Game is alright to play, however some things are a bit unreasonable:
• the game has a jump in difficulty in the beginning, instead of gradually getting harder. Because it is so hard, passing the levels in mainly reliant on luck and playing levels over and over until you get lucky.
• to renovate the house, each action requires a star or several stars. The problem here is that the actions cost way too many stars, or a broken down in a way that means in total it costs too many stars, especially considering how hard the levels are and how hard it is to earn them. For example, it often costs 2 stars to tile/floor half a room and another two stars to do the other half, or simple actions, such as answering the door costs 2-3 stars. This many the game unenjoyable since half the fun is renovating the house. Really, it should cost 1 star to do each action and flooring the room should not be split (I.e. 1-2 stars to floor or wallpaper the entire room, not half).
• the money system is a bit unbalanced - you only earn 50 coins per level (100 on the difficult ones) yet it costs 900 to buy more lives or buy 5 extra moves.
Supercallafr - Good but some things to tweak
Some of the things you’ve advertised were the multiple choice things, and there have been a lot of complaints about the mini games, I would strongly suggest to have a mini game button to play so players don’t get so annoyed and it would be so much more fun too. With those mini games you could have rewards like hearts, or money because another thing a lot of people don’t like is the limited hearts. So by adding the mini games you would be able to take out the false advertising issue and the hearts issue. Make it easier for you so you don’t get as many complaints, and make it a lot more fun for players like me who enjoy playing but can’t stand the hearts. Also side note, on harder levels you should add more stars as a reward, although I don’t have an issue with it I’ve read some reviews and agree that on harder levels there should be more stars. Please take all this into consideration.
Idontnormallywritereviews666 - Good, but needs more control
Highly addictive game, I have a love/hate relationship with it. I think some of the tasks cost unreasonable amounts of stars, and many of them are unnecessary. The bigger issue I think is the lack of control while playing the game and levels. For instance: if I were activating a plane, I would like to be able to determine which tile it destroys, it’s happened MANY times where I’ve got a move and if I had control over the plane, would be able to win, but didn’t, because I didn’t have the option. Some levels are just way too hard, but if you had the control you could win easier. Some levels have too many colours, so you end up wasting like 20 moves trying to get somewhere, and to no avail. Another thing is that I would have preferred to not add certain things to rooms, to not have joined into events, but I do understand why these things are a part of the game.
(Level 625 atm if that makes any difference)
LoveCrazedxo - Unsatisfied
I downloaded this game because of the mini games that require you to help the main character out of tricky situations. I was very annoyed at first that those games were rare and it was mostly a candy crush spin off. I stuck with it, enjoyed renovating the home, but then the mini game became far and few between, I’ve played about 20 levels and not one mini game. Top it off with the ‘hard’ and ‘super hard’ games cropping it more and more frequently and it seems to only occur when events are on which is frustrating because I can spend a whole day on one of these levels stuck and not be able to participate in the event, especially annoying when you pay for a ticket to be in the special events. And then it seems it wants you to pay more money to be able to move on from the super hard level, only to have 2 levels that are challenging but doable and then be stuck on another hard level. Not impressed at all.
Kyt2804 - I love this game
I’m addicted... Yes there are hard and super hard levels throughout the entire game not just in the beginning (which can be very frustrating, but I have learnt not to always do the suggested move but to do the illogical move instead), but yet if it wasn’t for them I would become bored and delete the game. To me Homescapes is a challenge and the reward is rebuilding/redecorating the home. I don’t like the 30mins between lives, mainly because I want to keep playing. Maybe add a couple of power ups as a gift (along with the coins we already get) for completing the hard/super hard levels could be a bit more of incentive for some people.
Keep up the awesome work and keep the variety of difficulties flowing throughout the game, so we actually have to use our brains, our thought process and work out a different strategy for each level.... See ya, gotta go back and play as I just won 3hours of unlimited lives... WooHoo Bye 🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳
Matie1 - A great game, but not what is advertised
I have been a fan of Homescapes and Gardenscapes for many years. I love the gameplay, and I love the storyline, I even like the level difficulty. It is very much worth the download! But something I have seen that’s becoming really disappointing is the misleading advertising on both of these games. Both games are advertised using entirely different game plays that are not at all featured in the games. Further more, the most recent update has changed the app icon to reflect the false gameplay in the advertising, rather than the gameplay in the actual game. It is becoming very clear that this company is very committed into misleading you for a download, which is very sad, as like I mentioned earlier the game is a great game on its own. In future, I would love to see accurate advertising and the company to have more faith in their gameplay, as I think this would result in more people playing the app rather than downloading and being disappointed.
Lou2290 - Great but too many side trips
This is my 3rd review and it’s gone up yet another star. 5 bc it’s my fave game, my daily go to. Can’t believe it has kept my attention for so long. I love playing it, love the characters and love fixing the house snd garden (although it always goes a bit too far!) here’s my older reviews FYI: I left this review a while ago with a 3 “Love playing it but I hate having to replay a game over just to feed a parrot or cat or start a new day. I just want to fix the house. Need more lives and less levels just for no advance in the game ie fixing the house. Love the characters and visuals but let’s get focused!” Since then things have improved. They really listened! But I have been in the garden ages now. It looks awesome but I want to get in the house. I would like to be able to direct the order I fix the house in... still, it’s gone up a star in my estimation and it’s my fave game atm... loving it.
Dont interrupt me - Too many stars
I love this game. The story is somewhat interesting, the levels are nicely challenging, and the house looks pretty fantastic as you remodel.
If I could improve a few things it would be even better.
Firstly, a few more design options would be awesome. Sometimes all the choices are really ugly or just don’t match well (the kitchen wallpaper for example). Another game I play that’s similar, let’s you visit random houses of other players and, if they have an item you don’t, you can collect it for your own house. You can also friend these people to ask for lives, etc without having to connect your game to Facebook.
Secondly, the number of stars required to complete items is ridiculous. When you start, there’s a variety of things that require different amounts of stars, eg 1 star might get you some tidying of rubbish but 2 stars will be enough for a new chair and three would be enough to rebuild a cabinet. But now, I’m lucky to get anything done for less than 3 or 4 stars! I just used three stars to unpack a tree, three stars to hang lights on the tree, four stars to hang a light curtain over the door, and now I need another four stars just to install a couple of speakers! With how hard the levels are getting, I’m lucky to get four stars without about ten hours of gameplay and I’m losing interest in the game.
Kazza215 - Great game but has a few flaws
First off just wanted to say it’s such a fun game. Love all the little side tournaments and things that pop up. My only feedback would be that as the levels get harder the stars that we collect shouldn’t be for simple thing like lifting a sheet off a car. And that two it took me four stars or five if I can remember to just lift the tarp off the car. Also the cats tasks should not be included with the main game but as a side game to achieve tasks for the cat. Perhaps if the developers can just make it a bit easier. It’s demotivating to have to use about ten lives to receive one star and then the task is something simple like taking a nest and placing it on a tree or as I mentioned the thing about the tarp on the car. I shouldn’t have to work sooo hard to use five of my stars to do something so simple. Thanks !
#fortnite101 - Ok, but levels are to hard
Homescapes s a very fun game. I love idea of fixing this old mansion as I love decorating and designing, but I’m stuck on level 24 and I have had this game for over a year now. On the first few levels you would be expecting them to be a bit easy, but in my case and many others it’s not. If you’re not able to complete a level how are you supposed to get stars? This brings me to my next case stars. When you go and finish a level you get one star but when you go to use them you end up having to use 2 to about 3 and that to me is pretty hard as I can not complete “easy” levels. Maybe if on harder levels you could get a bonus star or just make the tasks worth 1-2 depending on what it is. I’m not saying that the game should be made ten times easier, I’m just saying that it is frustrating being stuck on levels and not being able to get stars really fast and that i think it should be made a tad bit easier.
Aalingz - Losing interest because it’s too hard
This game started off really well but then became hard out of nowhere... now I’ve been stuck on the same level for about 1 and a half weeks and I’ve used all my powerups on this very level. For this reason I’m starting to get over this game. This isn’t the first time this has happened either so it’s getting a bit old now.
The developers of this game have another version (Gardenscapes) which I recommend as gameplay is so much better. You progress quicker but it’s still challenging as you still get stuck on levels but never more than a day or two. It’s prefect! Ive had Gardenscapes for half the time and I’ve progressed twice as much! It’s so much fun!
I still go onto Housescapes to collect my daily bonus and give the level a go but it’s not fun anymore. Even if I do pass this level I’ll be stuck on another level in the next couple of games. Also, it’s costs too many stars to do anything either so you’re just sitting there doing nothing and it’s boring!!!
L J Mac - Gardenscapes vs Homescapes
Initially homescapes is rather cartoony compared to gardenscapes but once you play a few levels you get used to it. I like that homescapes uses different combos & while other compare to candy crush - match 3 games were around long before candy crush & this is just another enjoyable form.
I like the fact that the storyline is more interactive than gardenscapes. I am over lvl 1000 in gardenscapes and you have to gather many star just to wait many hours for stairs etc to be built. I am current 170+ lvl in homescapes & while I'm starting to see more stars required it hasn't become a drag.
The daily spin or bonus is missing which would be nice to be included.
Overall a pretty enjoyable interactive story game with the ability to customise (via in game limited options) the decorations & make the home reflect closer to what you want.
Disappointed111wdf - Interesting game, but...
I have been playing this game for long time to kill the time. However, like others said, taking too long to finish 1 hard game. It could take up to more than a week. There are not much option to do, so most of the time are ‘no more move’. Spaces are limited to be able to make 3 matching colours. To make the matter worse, there are not enough same colours to match it.
I have been looking into other games too. If this game getting too ridiculous, I might just completely stop it.
However, the good things are you give us challenge team game and extra time to play.
The things that I don’t understand is ‘why we need to have the safe to keep the money while we can’t take the money out to use it?’ Then you keep asking us to buy a bigger safe to be able to save more money??? What for????
Jko611 - Great game but could use some improvement
I love this game and the idea of game! Although there are some unnecessary tasks, the whole cooking show skit isn't needed. I understand you're trying to create a story but maybe make it optional? Earning stars isn't easy, some of those levels are very hard! So i'd rather use my stars on decorating the rooms and expanding to different areas but now I have to use them to bake a cake? Also I think smaller tasks like calling someone or greeting a guest or starting a new day etc should only cost 1 star! I love that we get daily bonuses and all the power ups without them I wouldn't have been able to pass the harder levels. I have been on the kitchen for so long and now I have to do the cooking show I just want to move onto the rest of the house! I love the game it's very addictive but I think some of the tasks need to be re-thought
Wolfhound_2000 - Another good game ruined by greed!
Firstly, this is a good game. It’s enjoyable and very pretty to look at. I was having fun playing it and was willing to pay for extra coins to extend play. However, it is huge and I only got to the 3rd section when it got much harder. I’m now finding I hit designated ‘hard’ levels every 2 to 3 games. What this means is that I have to either re-play the level multiple times until I get a lucky combination (although this is now getting less effective) or spend my in-game coins to get through.
I get that the developers need to make money but this is getting ridiculous. It’s not fun anymore as there is no thought or challenge - it’s either luck or money now. Developers of these types of games just don’t understand that people have to enjoy a game all the way through if they want them to stick with it and spend a reasonable amount. Treating players as cash cows is not the way to build loyalty and ongoing support. Another good game ruined by greed :-(
Disii2 - More Rewards
This game does keep me going sometimes but some levels are easy, and some are impossible!! When we pass the levels we can we should receive more rewards to make it past the hard levels! We don’t receive enough money, the cheapest part is 900 coins too continue, and the most we receive is 150 coins on the hard levels we can’t pass anyway, and that’s where the 900 coins go and we get 150 back! We need more rewards of all kinds, so we don’t play the same levels for weeks, only too start the next level for weeks! Just some extra bonus’s for passing levels could make a little better. If anyone is interested in making it a little easier and more rewards a better game for more people to play so people can win and not loose! The whole story doesn’t really help the play of the game either, it just needs to win and give plenty of rewards to make it past the next level!
Kitkat2o4 - A bit too intriguing...
Dearest Homescapes developers,
The whole concept of Homescapes is that you pass
match-three levels to earn “stars” these stars then go towards helping Austin the butler renovate the house for his parents. It is so much fun to follow along with all the laughs as well as drama from the storyline with all the “stars” you earn from the levels and of course choosing new furniture for the house is splendid. Though every time you lose the match-three level you lose one life, now, you only have five lives so when passing levels you often -maybe a bit to often- have to try and pass super hard and/or hard match-three level with only five lives so you often lose all your five lives trying to pass one level and have to wait a very long time until you get at least one or two lives again to continue trying to pass one match-three level which, now don’t get me wrong- I love a good challenge, is quite annoying because you kinda get addicted with how much lives you have so you just wait there doing nothing until you can try to pass the level- I think play fix should give you TEN lives at a time not FIVE.
B001997 - Entertaining Game...
Remarkably I am now on level 673, I have been playing homescapes for about a year and a half (possibly longer) and still enjoy it. Most games I start obsessed but then it dies and I delete it, this game although sometimes very frustrating it has been the only game to last such a long time.
I must say the support team are awesome, I recently came across my first glitch in the game, when I finished enough levels to get my big reward on my “scarf” the reward didn’t come through on my account (3 hours of unlimited loves & power ups) I found it so easy to locate how to send a message to support and they got back to me within 24 hours with a response and put the reward into my account. I was very impressed with the efficiency and nice message from the support team.
So thank you 😊
Goldengirl100🤗 - Improvement
Homescapes has really improved lately!! Grandmas knitting to win long lives and the calendar which earns you extra power ups is really helpful, love them. As always I want this amazing game to keep improving, so I really think the option to gain 5 extra moves for 900 coins is too much considering you only gain roughly 60 coins when you finish a level. Another aspect that needs a change is when you complete hard levels you should win 2 stars not just 1. Finally I didn’t like how many stars I had to use up when completing the small storyline about grandmas cooking competition with Ralph. I’d rather use my stars to build my house and garden. So I think the building is the main path and character things are on the side, you don’t have to complete them to move forward, but you receive a prize if you do complete it.
VictoryBound - Great game that keeps on giving
I’ve been playing this game for years now. I love the story that goes along with it. It’s the most enjoyable of this type of game that I’ve come across. I see ads for it and it looks pretty bad but I’m glad I gave it a try because the game is way way better than the ads. In some instances it’s completely different. In reality it’s a match and line them up kind of game from which you earn points and then use those points to make something happen as you follow along with a cute story line. You can also just interact with the characters by taping them and they will have dialogue with you. I have chosen to spend a little money here and there but to be honest don’t mind supporting the makers of a game I have spent hours and hours playing. Highly recommend.
Crispiex - Slow progress with little reward
The levels are ok.. but everything else is so annoying. You could spend 1 day maybe a week getting past a level depending on the time you dedicate to the app. The star you get for passing a level is valuable and you expect it some progress in the house reno. If the points stars were put to the Reno alone that would be one thing but instead it goes to silly things like ‘the next day’ and you waste a point watching the character go to bed and get up? Or you are a few hours getting 2 stars(levels) only to ‘receive a gift’ from your uncle and you have no choice but to accept and waste your points. And don’t get me started on all the blabbering among the characters that doesn’t always give you an option to skip...the list goes on. to sum it up- some levels are just too busy, your stars/points aren’t valuable enough for the effort you put in. Not a satisfying or rewarding game just frustrating!
Tttjjjjmmm - Really good app but has some cons as well
This is a really good app with an amazing story line and has become extremely addictive. I love how it has a variety of different power ups compared to a lot of other games as well as it going towards a particular goal as you pass each level. Although, I am quite a new comer to this game and I am ONLY on level 60 and I have noticed an extreme dip in difficulty. Not that I don’t expect it to be a challenge etc. but it gets kind of absurd when you have pretty much in my opinion barely started the game and you are already struggling to pass levels to even get 1 star. Especially when the goals you need to complete begin to use more and more stars. I’m sorry to say but something may need to change or I can’t play this game anymore, and I am sure all users have the same views as I do... if this one thing slightly changed it would probably be my favourite game!
Parousia1 - Super Hard levels too frequent & costly
I have mostly enjoyed this game, but as I’ve got to higher levels (I’m on 861 now), I’ve found that the Hard and Super Hard levels have become far too frequent, and they’re virtually impossible to get past without spending money. It’s such a relief to get past them (the normal levels are challenging enough!), but I’m finding that I’m lucky to get two or three normal levels before being hit with the next Hard and then Super Hard level. My heart sinks when I see them, and I just have to give the game a break for awhile, as I know it’s likely to take me a couple of days to get through that level, at least. It’s getting to the point that I can no longer afford to play this game, and even though I’ve got 10 days left on my golden ticket, I don’t know if it’s worth it to keep going that long! 😟
Flyndongee - So frustrating
I play Gardenscapes and was really looking forward to a new version of the game in Homescapes. Originally, it started out well, very much like Gardenscapes but with some slight alterations. I’m now at level 170 and some of the levels are just impossible. I’m having to play the levels 30+ times to even get close to passing them and it is just frustrating. I’ve been stuck in the kitchen now for so long and am not able to progress any further because I can no longer get past the levels.
Really really disappointing - it’s like you want us to purchase all of the power ups and extra moves possible to allow us to pass the levels which is unreasonable and just plain annoying. I’m happy to use a power up if I can see it will actually make a difference but in homescapes - it seems that they are just there to make you guys money. Would have given 5 stars if it wasn’t for that. So frustrating and disappointing.
Lhdhdb - Love it...but needs fixing
I love the game with out a doubt, but there’s a few things that could be changed.
1. To get more lives it takes 30 minuets, which is a long time to wait 5-10 minuets is more reasonable.
2. While you wait for new lives there’s nothing to do, you could maybe make it that simple everyday tasks like answering the door, feeding the cat, cleaning and starting a new day not require any stars.
3. To continue on or buy boosters it $900 which is a lot considering that you only get $50-70 each time you complete a level. Most of the time I have just one more thing that I need to do but I only have $500 which takes me a week to save up.
4. When you complete a “hard level” you still only get 1 star and some coins. Maybe make it that you get more stars for the “hard levels”.
Hailz14 - I don’t want to play Candy Crush
I got this game because I thought it was about renovating a house. Nope it’s basically candy crush, and bits of renovating in between. And it’s so hard to earn stars to complete an action. Thinks take 2-3 stars, and that’s not including when things are divided up such as flooring. It is extremely difficult to pay levels with buying extra moves which I don’t want to do. And earning money from levels is just not worth it.
The levels need to change up a bit, make it a candy crush level, then throw in a word search, crossword or hidden object kind of levels to change it up. Also levels are labeled as hard but still only worth 1 star. Make hard levels worth more stars.
Also why am I wasting 2 stars on making a phone call, answering the door or cleaning up the cat and birds mess. It’s just not worth it.
When you’ve completed a day why not make it wait an hour and then start the new day instead of wasting stars.
This game is just a money grabber
Jason2u - Less frustrating
Would be less frustrating if the planes would hit appropriate targets rather than ones not doing anything. Obviously it’s possible to pass some levels without having to buy tokens. Spent a week trying to get past a level. Obviously for some levels it is almost impossible to get through without purchasing retries and weapons etc. You even get the privilege of getting reminded to buy special tools etc. some levels are relatively passable after many attempts with various strategies but disappointing some you virtually have to pay for or it drives you nuts after a week. I guess it’s user pays to varying degrees. Or maybe I need a photographic memory for previous strategies lol
Dasher193 - My thoughts on HS
Now just to let you know that by the current state it’s in, I would recommend it without a doubt... but it comes with a risk. The storyline how your with these characters and how you connect with then is fantastic, it feels new and fresh, and it’s amazing. Now with the gameplay, it’s basically every other puzzle game so that’s fine. My main complaint is how difficult it is to pass through days though the sometimes CRAZY objectives to get stars in levels. I’m not that far in the game and it’s frustrating that your wasting your time and in-game currency (money) and time to get lives towards being how difficult these levels are, it’s mind boggling. Personally devs, this game is a blast, however you need to tweek the difficulty setting because that the reason why:
1) This is just off receiving 5 star rating
2) To give the player the full Homescapes experience, instead having to waste real life money for lives and power ups to pass through levels and the story itself.
This game is nearly at its full potential. However with a couple of mistakes that can be easily cleared, this game won’t be a hassle to complete for everyone and will be a better experience for new players.
Cheers for reading :)
CoSiHe212706 - Good game but..
The game does have a level of appeal where you want to keep playing just to complete each task but after flying through most of the first levels it soon became evident you’re probably gonna need to start spending some money to keep going. I myself refrained from spending any actual cash as I just can’t justify it. There’s no way I’m gonna pay up to $150 just to comfortably complete levels for an app on a PHONE! I’m sure it’s a popular game so a one off payment to “buy” the game would be more suitable. Expecting people to cough up more and more money just feels like gambling to me except there’s no prize money at the end of it. I will
continue happily playing for free as long as I can but as soon as it comes to the point where I can’t go any further without spending money I am out! Lol -
Livz1 - So not worth it
I found this game through an ad on another game and I thought it was going to a multiple choice game but it was one of those candy crush like games. Like another user said, CLICKBAIT. I’ve been stuck on a super level for weeks. On other previous levels I paid like $5 in order to get more money in order to continue playing on a level, but it wasn’t worth it since it only gives me 5 more turns. And if you don’t get it in that many, it requires 1200 in game money for more. Are you serious? How do you expect people to play this game????? And if you want more money from the game, you earn all this money in a ‘vault’ which surprise surprise you have to pay real money for. Seriously, make the levels a little more easier and realistic to actually complete. This feels like a scam. You won’t be getting any more of my money!!!! Disappointed.
Becca16790 - Long Time Player
I’ve been playing this game for years. I started on gardenscapes and eventually came to homescapes. I’m level 3000+ and have always been playing.
However, I’ve noticed they have started to falsely advertise the game and add ridiculous options that completely ruin the story. They even changed the icon of the game to fit their misleading ads. I was so disappointed in that, I even reached out to them on instagram DMs about how disappointed I was in their thirst to “fit in”. I remember seeing an ad where they depicted one of the main characters freezing to death and you had to choose the right option to save them. THIS IS NOTHING LIKE THE GAME.
I thought the game was perfect without trying to appeal to the mob. Just be you. Stay in your lane. Advertise your game as is, so many people love it how it is.
Pink_faerie - Lots of room for improvement
This is a simple yet super addictive game. I love being able to decorate your own house, however the further you get, it’s quite ridiculous how many ‘stars’ are required to complete one change (I.e. build bridge/whatever). Especially considering how hard it is to get pass some levels. Even USING all the power ups, some levels still take 10-20 times (I am on Level 496).
I also like that there are little side stories/events, but HATE that they don’t give you a choice of when you want to use the ‘infinite lives’ power up. Sometimes I pop on to play for 10-15 minutes, pass a checkpoint and BAM it automatically uses the infinite lives for 5 hours power up that you got as a gift/prize. Well, thanks but no thanks! If I wanted to play for 5 hours, I would’ve made sure I had more than 10-15 mins spare! Extremely stupid function that still hasn’t been fixed/changed!
Petermi-71 - Fun but rigged
This game is fun mostly and quite challenging. However, I cannot help but feel that it is designed to keep you playing and more importantly purchasing items that will help with playing those hard levels. I find that when I’m stuck on a particular level, it will take me a few days of no success. Then all of a sudden it becomes easy as the bombs all appear at once. It’s as if the developers realise that we may get bored with the game so they help us out just to keep on playing. I sometimes feel that some levels are just impossible to play and require no skill. Nonetheless, I never spend money on the app and when my lives run out, I quit for at least the next few hours. It’s a good way of not getting stuck playing this all day and can get on with other things.
Cj siettey - it’s good but requires too many stars for such little things
i love the story line i love the game i love the way you have to play a game to get stars and complete goals. i love having 3 choices to decorate and design the look you want, there’s many things that i love, i hate to mention something that i really dislike... i feel it is required to win too many stars for such little tasks and sometimes i don’t feel like playing anymore as some levels can be so hard to get past let alone be able to get just one star and the goal requires 2 or 3 sometimes even 6 or more. please if you could take it down to one to two stars i would be a much higher level because i would non stop be playing. i also love the occasional rewards of continuous play although not being able to choose when to use them can be a real bummer as sometimes i’m playing with a two spare minutes i might have and then win a couple hours of endless lives that i can’t even use because i’m still very busy, being able to choose when i can use the hours of free play pretty much would be a really great idea! thanks so much for your amazing game and for taking the time to read my feedback! have a good one!
Kida Hawkins - Not bad, decent, could be better
This game is a good time waster and quite fun if you enjoy match-3 games. However, it gets frustrating when it seems that some levels are basically designed for you to spend money on coins to get upgrades or extra moves to pass the level. Some people don't have the spare cash in their budget to purchase coins and what real money you spend isn't even worth what you get, especially if you have to throw currency conversion in. The daily bonus is a good idea, though the seventh day isn't that great compared to the best spin in Gardenscapes. It's more interactive with the designing of the house than designing the garden in the previous game which is a definite bonus. So to summarise, it is a difficult interactive time-consuming match-3 game that may require you to purchase bonuses or extra coins for lives and bonuses.
Nevili family - R - - Homescapes
Its a rewlly good game and the fact that theres reading in it so its like a education game as well and it may be hard to play some levels but its such a wonderful game and whenever you get a new house or apartment it helps u organise some stuff for your house therefore to make beautiful so i just wanna say thank you for make this game it helps people alot and and kids for education for reading and help new words and also Gardenscapes its also a wonderful game and a beautiful backyard it can effect people and make their backyard become beautiful and some also words such as reading for the kids as an education game for them and both games are very entertaining so thank you for both games🥳🕺
Julesisaac - A great game.
This is a great game yet it takes forever to get through hard levels even when you use power ups and extra lives. And looking through the reviews, everyone says how great it is and how long it takes lives to recharge and nothing has changed. These reviews go back to years ago and the same issues are happening so obviously no one developing this game is reading them! Frustrating because it is such a great game but now I go through weeks without touching it because it takes so long to work through the levels. Even when I buy extra credits etc I still don’t get through a level. Someone needs to pay attention to what people are writing because there are other games out there that are taking people away from this game.

Bird88 - ???
Why is the game not the game you show?...pick and item (correct or fail)?
Where is that game?
NicS8619 - Good game that could be better..
I really like this game, but some of the early levels are too hard and it can take way too long to build up stars. I also find it very frustrating how many stars you have to 'waste' on pointless tasks like opening a parcel. I love choosing furniture and doing up the house and think every task should be related to this.
Krafty67 - Annoyed
This game is not what the advertisement shows. I got interested based on the ad now I'm annoyed that I'm stuck at a level and still no sign of the game being like the ad. Where's the part when you hit the wrong picture you fail? And choosing the right tool to fix thing? Where? I'd really like to know.
Btw I hate candy crush and didn't anticipate playing it on this. Give me what the ad shows
Ellie9999999 - SO FAKE
The ads seem so interesting way more interesting than the actual game I hate that they make the ads so different so you actually want to get the game but I kind of understand why probably because the game itself is such a waste of time and money. If you like this game....ok I am not judging you but for my opinion it’s a NO! 🙄😑👎Horrible
Meaghan99 - Misleading advertisements for this game
While playing other games, I see ads for this app. These advertisements are completely irrelevant to the actual game - these ads are misleading of what the actual game ensues. That’s disappointing.
Zazoubella - Really fun but...
Please rethink the game. Really hard to get through some level. Not enough hammer or bonus stuff. Also you never give enough money for us to continue. It gets boring when you can do anything.
Allan71 - Horrible
There is a fine line between challenging and stupid, they have leaped over that line here...such an obvious ploy to get you to spend money on more lives and boosters, no entertainment value like previous games just an old formula to try to grab money.
Yticyuocgjlcty - Greg
You will see many ads for this game and related ones (gardens capes, townscapes) in many other games. However, gameplay in the ads is NOTHING like the actual gameplay. I downloaded this game on the basis of the ads I had seen and played it for several hours before deleting it. Not what I had expected. Additionally, there are many events which operate on a clock ( eg bonus in effect for xx minutes) so for maximum benefit, you have to continue playing. I' prefer a game I can play non my schedule, not the games.
EvilWeaver - Nothing like the Ad!
Where the heck is the game from the ad I clicked on! This is candy crush with horrible interior decorating. Seriously, I wanna hit a robber in an elevator with a bat!! Why Homescapes!
Just some family - Not what's in the advertisement
I mean, it's ok for a match 3 game, but it's not a match 3 game that's advertised. I wouldn't have downloaded it if the ad was true to the game which I guess is how they pull you in. It's a cute story but it isn't what I wanted to play.
Jessica Rogowski Swan - Upset in level setting
This game may fun but after unfound that you went round and round not getting anywhere and found that u had purposely set the level so hard its wasting ❤️ and patient and those inks in this are not on making it more inpatient to point ☝️ of giving up on completely from been struck at 28 and waste those hearts and real money 💰 to bankrupt.
Solongeh - Misleading ads
The ads for this game is extremely misleading. Game disappointingly is just another match 3 game.
Johlego - Not what it looks like
If you’ve seen an ad for this game where you repair and fix things, not be fooled! This is a glorified candy crush type game. And not that good.
Etzmach1 - False advertising
Not the game from the millions of ads all over the web. It’s a Bejewelled based purchase storyline, nothing more.
Sykxdvvvk:58 bkjstkxfjvd - Ad is very misleading!
The ad really is nothing like the game. I downloaded because the ad made it look like fun however it’s basically like playing candy crush. Very disappointed. Will delete.
SpurzSweetHeart - Love it
Love this game but we should get $$ easier, it gets a little hard sometimes... just wish you could get extra cash
Purple piee - DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GAME! It’s a SCAM
This game is absolutely nothing like what the adverts have been showing! It’s essentially a low budget candy crush and not helping a lady get to her lover or whatever else they advertised!
They make their money off downloads so they don’t care whether or not you are pleased with or actually play the game.
This rubbish should be taken off the App Store!!!
COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME!!!!!
Okangirl - Fun game too expensive
Your game is fun and I enjoy the challenging levels, however your coins are too expensive for what you get! You get close to the end of the level and need a couple items and it's $900 coins to start only going up from there. TOO EXPENSIVE! I spent $120 at least but no more I will be deleting this game you should make it more fair for your customers and not be so greedy! I have been playing Hayday for years now and I have no problem spending money with them as they are fair with what you are paying for, you guys are not!
Sc@593402 - False advertising
This game is nothing like the advertisement. I am on level 82 and still nothing remotely close. If I wanted to play Candy crush I would.
Awfulgarbage - Not worth it
I will be deleting as soon as I’m done reviewing. Spent 98% time and effort to win stars in a ‘candy crush’ game but the game I wanted, which you showed in ads, is non existent. What a waste of time!
Disapointed7974829 - Not like the ad
This game was disappointing. I was interested by the game that was shown in the ad, and yet the game is NOTHING like it at all! Why show an ad for a game that isn’t even available? Why not make that game?
123456789💙💙💙 - Waste of time & false advertising
This is not a game, it’s click bait. All positive ratings are fake. The game adds don’t reflect the game. There was never a problem to fix. After spending way too much time I never progress to rooms. The characters dialog was stupid and couldn’t skip. To move through levels you have to spend money or relying on social media. Waste of time.
IamPJ - Confused
This game is nothing like I expected. I was intrigued with a game I saw an ad for (lots of ads mind you). However, after trying it out, realized it’s nowhere close to the type of game advertised, just a very very poor excuse for yet another matching game.
DylanKM - Garbage
Nothing like the ads. Its all false advertising and click bate. This is just candy crush with stupid side quests.
Pears13 - Fun game but also aggravating
The levels are fun and the decorating is enjoyable, however, you have to waste stars constantly doing meaningless tasks such as finding the cat or calling the parents a taxi. I would not recommend playing if you actually want to focus on the decorating. Quite disappointed.
Lani Dracl - False advertising
Choose the cat and get rid of the mouse? Never get that option. This is just a lame game with ugly design options.
Goradaristhebest - Fake
Nothing like the ads. I downloaded it thinking it was like the ad. Deleted once realizing it wasn’t. Go make the game u are advertising and I’ll download that
Woollyfeet - Save katrin?!
What the actual heck? An add popped up on my minesweeper game advertising some kind of homescapes game where you torture some chick. Da f’q is wrong with you people? That’s sick.
TOSquirrel75 - Bait and switch
I kept seeing the ad for this game and thought that looks like fun. Putting out fires and fixing the plumbing. That’s not the game I downloaded. This is a puzzle game. Which is puzzling to me. Why don’t they show this in the ads. And where is the game shown in the ads? Because that’s the one I want
Kat0000777 - Fake
Le jeu est pas comme l'annonce. Ce n'est pas vrai que tu repare les choses. Tu dois jouer a un jeu comme candy crush pour recolter des etoiles pour ensuite seulement cliquer sur un objet cassé pour voir apparaitre 3 choix d'objet pareille
Kaat0330 - Clickbait
It’s almost like this game was a clickbait. Not the game that was advertised on other apps. If I wanted something like candy crush, would’ve downloaded candy crush. Barely gave this game 5 minutes
Hãłęÿ bubbles. - Yeah ok uhhhhh no
I was about to download this game for the ad but I was reading the games review and for the first I was like ok no big deal then I got deeper and every one was saying “false advertising” so here I am now so if you were going to download this game for the ad please don’t it’s a waist of your time that is why I’m giving this game... 0 ⭐️ (yeah ok I wish ) 1 ⭐️ thank you for reading
Shaughnessykid - Not as advertised
This game is nothing like the advertisement. Just another Candy Crush. Very disappointed with it.
Bdub19824u - Wrong
Roy2Picard - Disappointed
Disappointed. What is in the Ad is not at all what is played.
Same game different name. Makes you do all kinds of useless things with the stars you collect instead of moving forward with the renovations.
Anyways boring and was expecting so much better.
Bottnel - Sera
First off. You can't post a review unless you give it a three star review so highly doubt this will be posted but this is NOT the game advertised. Shame on you getting people to download this hooey. Make the game you advertised and there you will have a great game. Shame on you
JcTcom - Nothing whatsoever in common with add
Installed 3 games from this developer looking for the interesting puzzle like games that were advertised. For some reason they have decided to provide adds for their games that have nothing whatsoever to do with the game being advertised.
I don’t get it. Uninstalled
Buoih - Not the game I saw
I was excited to play the game I saw in the ads however it’s not the game I downloaded. I’m very disappointed.
Natti R - Fake ads
This and many games like it give you false hope of a good game. It is nothing like the ad suggests. I’m just more curious to find the game advertised then anything.
KFinbow - False Advertisement
Very disappointing game, nothing in the advertisements show a match 3 game. It shows fixing/repairing a destroyed area by picking one of three items as well as picking one of three items to save someone from a bad situation. Very shady and sad that they can’t even advertise the real game (cause it sucks compared to the advertisement!)
Kljmniyy - Boo
You have made the game way too difficult. Don’t enjoy the game not fun anymore. Notice team players aren’t on like before. Spend days on very difficult puzzles.
Tublu42 - Honest as I can be
Overall game is great. Graphics, events, and seeing the house come together was super satisfying. Why the one star review then?
I got to level 2520 (completed the first house entirely) simply because it was so addicting and I have to say this game was super stressful and frustrating, especially when you lose on the last turn. There where times where I would be stuck on a level for days, not because I was bad at the game, but because I didn’t have power ups. There are certain levels that can only be won with all the power ups! Also, their were times the airplanes wouldn’t hit the right tile on the last turn and I would lose....
Deleted the game a few days ago and I must say it’s a great decision I made.
HaMsTeR 4777 - Ok but I didnt get the game to play candy crush!!!
Ok but they dont give you any stars to start the game. If you like candy crush this may ust be the game for you, but personally if I wanted to play candy crush I would get candy crush. They should get rid of the candy crush, and put more of the escape game. You only get to play the escape game every once and a while. Also you need to use your stars for stupid things like waking the character up.
Overal, not a fan. 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
Natalygagnon - Fausse publicité
Je voulais jouer au jeu de puzzle trouver le bon chemin ou le bon outil, comme la pub !.... mais ce n’est pas le jeu du tout.... ne vous fiez pas aux apparences.
Mr. extreamly dissapointed - Fake adds
The game was nothing like the one in the add. That was the only reason I wanted to get this game. So naturally, I was bummed that the whole game was just a stupid candy crush rip off.
Sprintmarathon - Relentless ads are the worst
What could be so great about a game that has to assault you with ads to convince you that it’s worth playing. Not worth the time or attention.
Miascorpio - Unacceptable Data Collection
I feel this is totally an invasion of privacy .
Espero+9 - False advertising
Nothing like what was shown in ad.
Any name!! - false ads
is there a way to play the challenge games without decorating a house? the game ads show the games & nothing to do with the house decorating- false advertising!!
