Dr.Dremur - Letting players know
I wrote the same thing on Gardenscapes to let players know..
I'm letting all of you know that think you have to pay to beat a level is not true. Yes you can pay for the coins and stuff if you want. But it's just a matter of trial and error. I'm on level 289 and have not spent a dime of real money. I only use the coins I earn and the prizes I win with the calendar and events, sometimes it doesn't work out and I don't beat it but it doesn't mean I have to pay to win, I spent weeks on a level before keep trying don't give up and when you finally get a good set up the satisfaction is greater when you win. I love this game with the storyline it brings. I love trying to guess the new area when the other is complete. Same thing goes for Gardenscapes both are amazing.(and I'm on level 559 without spending money)
Both games for all levels trial and error. Don't give up don't get frustrated. Support the developers by keeping the games. You can buy the sales offer. But just because you can't beat a level in a certain amount of days or weeks doesn't mean it's set up to where you have to pay to win. All levels in all games are made to be beaten without pay or upgrades. Paying to help doesn't mean you'll beat the level then. So don't get mad at the developers.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD‼️ - Funny characters, hard play, low payout
The ad for the game is quite tricky because it’s really not the actual game you play but an small game inserted in between passing few levels. Nevertheless, I got hooked because of the funny characters. It is enticing that you start of playing for a long while due to the freebies of life you gain that as a newbie you won’t know to save for later. You rack up 6-9 hours of free time at start but who can really play continuously for that long. Wasted free play time. The payout isn’t really much and the cost to continue the game if you want to finish it is 900 when you very rarely get a payout of a 100 for each game you complete. I feel the difficulty of the puzzles is set up to make you finish the puzzle by replenishing your coins hence you buy because you’ll rarely have enough coins saved up due to the expensiveness acquiring 4-5 extra turns. Nothing more frustrating than a turn or two and you’ll be done but are out of turns. Most of the puzzles seem to be set up that way. So here I am $30 and barely a week of playing later at 299 level got a rude awakening I have spent so much because I have no control😅 so time to delete this game. The puzzles are very difficult but can be solved after trying sooooo many times after waiting for your life to replenish (which by the way replenishes fast) or purchasing the coins which I did a lot but no more😄 Devs: loosen up on them puzzles please and have mercy if your prices for added turns 🤦🏻♀️
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 🐘🐘🐘
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.
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.
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.
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. :/
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.
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
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. ✌🏼
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.
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 😂🤣!
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
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. :)
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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....
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.
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.
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.
....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. 🤷🏻♀️🌝
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

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.
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
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)
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.
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!!
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 🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳
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.
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.
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!!!
#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.
cbatty - Fun to play but...
This is a fun game to play. It has a quirky storyline and likeable characters. However I believe there is more to winning a level than just luck or skill, especially when real money is needed to buy virtual coin to extend a round by five moves. Initially I did part with my hard earned cash to advance but as time went on I felt I was being manipulated by the game to spend money as on several occasions I would miss out on completing a level by only a few moves, thus enticing me to spend just a little more for a guaranteed completion. After deciding to turn off the flow of cash into the bank account of the developers, I found my luck changing for the better when I found that I could easily complete a level after completing my penance of failure. While it could be argued that I was just lucky or unlucky, I reckon there’s more to it than that with an algorithm deciding if I would win a round or not. I am happy to be proven wrong if a developer would reply.
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????
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 !
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 :-(
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.
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!
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.
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!
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”.
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.
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
disii2 - WHAT FUN!!
This game is a good one and a bit hard to put down, but sometimes a bit hard to play!! I am in the 3000 levels and in the top 5 out of 30, in the team l have joined. And we are a great team helping each other giving lives and winning competitions and communicating with each, we are all new friends so it's good for having some helping friends now and sometimes winning playing together! But some levels are just a little bit too hard. They should make them a little easier so you don't have to try so many times wasting all your time and lives. And when you do pass and win extra, rewards should be won, and maybe more than one coin, so it's a little easier to keep going, without being stuck on one level for way too long and ready to give up!
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 :)
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!
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.
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 -
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.
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!
Catehayw - A little frustrating
I am enjoying the game, the storyline and doing up the house. Although I find that the money collected at the end of levels and the money needed to get a few more moves is extremely far away from each other. 50 coins per level to 900 for an extra 5 more moves if you get stuck. It takes forever to get the coins so you can get extra moves so I find myself taking over a week to get to the next level. You need to get 2 or more stars to do anything in the house which seems to take forever. You have a set of 3 cabinets and it will take you 3 stars to do 1 cabinet at a time. So getting anything done that shows progress seems to be a while in coming. If you have money to throw at it then you can go far in the game quickly.
Perdita b - Homescapes...
Whist in the start I enjoyed this game, like other players some of the levels are extremely hard, and even after using various power ups I am still stuck after multiple attempts at a level. Seems there is no logic to some of the boards and appears based on random chance, which makes you loose interest rather fast. No prepared to pay money out all the time to get useless power ups and not be able to move forward. Sure the game needs to challenge, but really, after about 30 attempts at a board who wouldn't get sick of being stuck.
You can wait to gain coins, but you don't get enough back compared to the cost of the power ups. Either reduce the cost, increase the reward or have a spinning wheel of chance like Gardenscapes. Makes you want to look at other games rather than continue this one.
Parry what the - Looove it!
This is my new favourite game. 😍 I haven’t rated before now because I wanted to get a good feel for the game. I am currently sitting on level 2151 and usually have to wait each week for the new levels to be released. The idea of actually passing levels to achieve something is a refreshing concept. This is coming from a candy crush addict. I recently reached level 4000 and am so over a game that rewards nothing that I have quit and put all my free time into Homescapes. The actual story is not that important but renovating an old mansion is the aim and the reward.
On the downside, there needs to be more ways to obtain power ups, and I think needing 2 stars to start a new day is ridiculous. Us players haven taken way more than a day to get to this point.
Juanita74 - Highly addictive
This game is very addictive. I would of stopped playing it a long time ago but I keep coming back. I don’t know why..... it’s frustrating a lot of the times and I really don’t like the fact the my boosters will take out other boosters on the board. I think I’d like to choose when to use them. Isn’t that what a booster is for? I also hate the fact that the coins won are so meager but it costs a whooping $900 just for 5 more moves.... ridiculous. And don’t get me started on the amount of stars you need to change something in the house. I think if it goes up to four after the next day I start, I’m done. It’s hard enough as it is to earn those. With out having to spend money that is. I just wish there was a game like this that was more evenly distributed with its advances in game moving a bit faster than this snails pace. Otherwise I wouldn’t bother with this one.
This is okay but it is bad - It’s Okay But....
Hi, you may of seen the title of this review thinking that it is going to be bad, well not exactly.
First of all, love doing the designing in the house it’s so cool to make everything look nice and all but there is one problem and I think others have the same reason as me and the reason is that you have to buy things that cost like 900coins and you get 50coins every match, example. I’m on level 24 which is the “impossible” level that I’m stuck on. And I want to buy something to help me win it, well I can’t because of the money and plus you win 5 games it’s 250, you lose 5 games “nothing” and you have to wait 30m for a live! This game is somewhat money hungry like why can’t we just play the game like normal people and not buy anything, but yet again we can’t, the game is money hungry please fix . Or deleting.
hiii im rating something :) - Overall Okay- Need LOTS of work
I have Homescapes and enjoy playing it, completing challenging puzzles and renovating houses is very enjoyable.
But there are LOTS of flaws. Firstly the amount of stars you get considering the difficulty level is horrible, only one star for a hard level and 2 for a super hard level is not ok. Also when playing the puzzles the superpowers sometimes don’t even work! Like when I use the rainbow disco ball, it doesn’t even remove all of the same pieces, another example is when mixing a rainbow disco ball and a bomb, and two bombs are in the same area, they don’t clear the slightly foggier cherries! (By the way if you don’t play the game you won’t understand) One more thing is that you have to wait 30 MINUTES for a new life! That is horrible!
Overall a very addictive game but needs a lot of work
EntertainMee - 1524 I swear I have a life.
Currently up to level 1524, and still enjoying the game. I sometimes don’t play everyday, I do work a full time job lol. 😂 It’s taken me years to reach the level I’m up to, and takes me a couple of days to pass a level when I get stuck. It’s not always a hard level either, sometimes the Level labeled hard is easy and it’s sometimes the easier levels I might get stuck on. It’s just the right amount of easy and challenging. 😊👌🏻 I like to play this game in the afternoon when I get a chance to sit down and relax so mostly I play every day but then sometimes I go weeks without playing it and I’ll just go on it to collect the coins by watching the videos.
Stphlou - Good concept but frustrating
Can see a lot of reviews saying similar things I'm about to say:
- Some levels are so ridiculously hard you just have to keep trying until you get lucky. Or purchase power ups to get through the level. Sometimes I can get stuck on the same level for days. And that definitely reduces the time of me playing. I wouldn't play this during the day as an entertainment as it definitely frustrates me more than it relaxes me;
- the house renovation keeps you hooked which is why I keep going back to the levels no matter how frustrated I am. It definitely costs too many stars for some really minor improvements;
- Overall smart concept but too money hungry. I have 2 hours unlimited life as I'm typing this up but I'm so frustrated about being stuck on the same level I just closed the game. I can see myself uninstalling soon.
Jodes207 - If only... love it but...
This has the potential to be my favourite game in years but like seemingly EVERYONE (please take heed Playrix developers!) I find it unreasonably “expensive” to progress through the tasks. I’ve reached the point where I’ve lost my enjoyment of the game because it takes an unrealistic 5⭐️ to complete the most menial task and very regularly, it’s a two-parter! When my To-Do list had only two tasks listed that between them require 20!!!! stars, I almost uninstalled the game but I really want to give Playrix the chance to rectify this. I’ve made it this far (Lvl578 currently) and Homescapes would be right up there in my top apps ever because it’s the renovation element and its subsequent storyline that differentiates it from so many of its Match-3 brethren. PLEASE reduce the amount of stars needed; I would love to be able to enjoy this game again!!
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.
Crystal Gamer! - PLEASE READ PRODUCERS...
This is an awesome game and I highly recommend it, But there is a lot of problems. That I would love the producers to change.
These are the things I really want changed.
1. You get a lot of things to do on your to do list. (The Highest Amount 5) and I would love to only have 10 or 15 things to do in my list.
2. You should get 2 stars after completing a normal level not 1, 3 stars for a hard level and 4 or 5 stars for super hard levels.
3. The amount of competitions are very unexpected and should be shorted to at least 3 or 2 competitions if you know what I mean.
4. There should be less of the to do things and a 13 stars reward after a day. This is because I don’t even end the day in the game until two days because of all the things to do.
5. I would love to see the other parts of the house but not be able to change them ( if you know what I mean).
6. You should make the days shorter so I don’t have to be bored the next day seeing the same things on the to do list as the day before.
In all this is a very good game and I have a lot of positive thoughts about this app. I would love to see more updates and

SpurzSweetHeart - Love it
Love this game but we should get $$ easier, it gets a little hard sometimes... just wish you could get extra cash
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
solongeh - Misleading ads
The ads for this game is extremely misleading. Game disappointingly is just another match 3 game.
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.
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.
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!!!!!
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.
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!
DylanKM - Garbage
Nothing like the ads. Its all false advertising and click bate. This is just candy crush with stupid side quests.
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.
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.
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
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
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
Shaughnessykid - Not as advertised
This game is nothing like the advertisement. Just another Candy Crush. Very disappointed with it.
Bdub19824u - Wrong
bird88 - ???
Why is the game not the game you show?...pick and item (correct or fail)?
Where is that game?
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
D'ironie - Super!
J'adorais déjà Gardenscapes. Alors maintenant, je suis si contente de décorer la maison. Et j'espère qu'il continuera de décorer un restaurent, un immeuble ,une île ect. Bravo au concepteur et merci beaucoup.🤗 👍
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
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
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.
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!)
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.
Annerules8 - Misleading
When I previewed the game, it looked liked I could choose the right tool to fix the problem in the room I was going to be repairing. Not a bunch of same token match puzzles that sometimes take three days to solve. It also went outside the home which I found very frustrating, as it took me away from my primary premise for several days until I could complete the garden tasks. I have lots of puzzle games like this, the original premise looked more rewarding.
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!!
lkurjdh - Not as advertised.
This game bears zero resemblance to the ads.
若狐儿 - It’s not like what the ad shows
I’m only interesting in the game types showed in the ads. Not a stupid traditional boring match 3. The ads are cheating.
fffffffffffffgyyyyy Ricky fud - One of the worst

sepdancingart - homescapes rocks!
I personally have been playing this game for a few weeks, and I’m completely addicted! I love the idea behind this game, and all the creativity included. candy crush is one of my favorite games as well, but I also really like to organize and design houses and rooms too, so this is just the perfect game for me! games such as home design really interest me because it’s super fun to decorate homes, and tie the them together with pictures and furniture. although, sometimes, the levels can be a little hard and I don’t have enough money in the game to continue on a level. eventually I learned the tips and tricks though, and I’m nearly a pro! my brother also really enjoys this game, but finds it to be slightly challenging at his age. of course, he is still quite young so it’s understandable. plus, I really like teaching him how to do it and helping him with it. i like how it walks you through all of the events in Austin’s life, too! absolutely amazing design on that! progression through this game is just so fun, and I’m always excited to sit down and play. anyways, I really love this game and recommend it to everyone out there who is willing to go on an adventure through a screen.
Nicknamebro - Inevitable Pay Wall
Homescapes is another enjoyable color matching “free to play” game with a nice home decorating mix to it. Each level you finish earns you a star which you can use to renovate/decorate your home. Since your home starts off as a total mess you’ll be doing things like rebuilding stair cases, putting new wallpaper, replacing furniture and much more. You usually get to choose between 3 different style options for almost everything in the home and it’s really nice to see it transform into something new. However, the game can be a bit tedious because you will also need to earn stars to complete other activities such as answering the door or finding your cat. This makes the progress of rebuilding your home much slower and I am sure that was the intention of the developer. The major problem with this game is that you eventually will reach a level of difficulty that requires the use of all of your power ups to be able to complete. And once you run out you will spend a lot of time replaying the same level over and over until you get lucky and finish it. This was also intentional so that people would be enticed to pay real money for power ups. Although the game is fun and good quality, I have to knock it down a couple stars because of the pay wall.
MonieCz - Love the look and story but may quit
I came to this inside one to recapture the excitement and pleasure I got at the beginning of my Gardenscapes play. I loved watching the garden change and feeling I had a say in just how it looked. I even paid attention to Austin’s in-game FB posts and enjoyed when he had visitors. Then...it got harder and harder to pass levels. I have little money to spend so I rarely buy “helps” but I do write reviews when I love a game and tell friends to check it out. I haven’t played Gardenscapes for weeks now—though I sometimes open it up to look at how pretty the garden is and to tell Austin I’m still on vacation and to take care of the house. With the Homescapes game I am enjoying a feeling of accomplishment again but I assume that too will soon end. I think the developers have made it way too hard to make any progress that the discouragement way outweighs any fun. Why not give us a way to earn more points (rather than watching commercials about other games—and even that doesn’t get you much)? I almost deleted Gardenscapes last week I was so frustrated. Then decided to try carpet and furniture rather than fountains and flowers. We shall 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.
John Snow Targarian - Data Harvesting Trap
STOP DOWNLOADING THESE GAMES. Every person who downloads and agrees to allow them to harvest/sell your personal data , whenever and however they want, YOU ARE PART OF THE HUGE PROBLEM OF DATA HARVESTING. Does anyone READ the screen when they FORCE you to agree to THEIR PRIVACY TERMS in order to play the game? How clueless has our society become to continue to complain tirelessly about data Harvesting, stolen identity, etc etc etc, then millions of ppl down load and play these games that they think are for free. I’d rather pay a few bucks to download a game or app, and at least be promised my data is not compromised, Than to download a game then be confronted by a notice that literally tells you they are going to be tracking and accessing whatever they want as soon as you give them permission to do so. Until those who KNOW can wake up the masses who have no clue or are too ignorant to care about the blatant and now arrogant demand to allow them full access or you don’t get to play their free game, THIS WILL CONTINUE to get worse if it can actually get any worse or more asinine. If we the customers DEMAND they STOP HARVESTING OUR DATA /PERSONAL INFORMATION the DEVELOPERS WILL BE FORCED TO STOP, Otherwise THEY WILL CONTINUE TO HARVEST AND SELL YOUR PRIVATE PERSONAL DATA. WAKE UP and be responsible for not only yourselves but your children whom you allow to dload whatever catches their eye, these predators know how to catch your kids eye!
-annoyed - Time
I am constantly trying to find more things to do while I am waiting for levels to load and it gets boring when you have to wait 20+ mins for it to load when all you want to do is play! Play! Play!! so yes I am really looking for something else to do while time is passing such as being able to have conversations with the people who are passing along meaning I would type my response and have conversations about whatever I feel like talking about or playing with the cat leaving to go to school or work maybe just something to do while the time is passing by until the level loads and also I don’t like having to wait to unlock new rooms I still have not unlocked any since I started and I’m getting restless it’s so boring when all you can do is sit in the house all day long PLEASE FIX THESE ISSUES IT IS DRIVING ME NUTS!!!!
other than that it’s pretty cool and very fun
Yours truly, Valued Customer -*=*-
P.S i have been stuck on both level 29 on Gardenscapes and level 57 on Homescapes for at least one to two weeks or so I was wondering if you could bring the difficulty level down a couple notches because to be honest and fair it becomes quite frustrating when you are trying over and over again and it would help if you took that under consideration thanks Playrix!
hello the great nobody! - It’s playable but sometimes annoying...
This is fun but there are something’s to touch up on. First of all there are only 5 lives?! I need more than that, and at first in the games there are only like 20 moves and then you have to get 50 things, how does that make sense. When you run out of moves you have to spend 900 just to get 5 more moves?! We need more than that. 5 moves does not make a difference, especially when it cost you 900 to get it. The adds don’t make sense. The adds display a totally different game then what we are actually playing. I would always get irritated with the adds but after you download it, it shows it being an other version of candy crush. When the family is talking about the stuff I would like to be able to skip it...I don’t want to read some stuff that takes time away from me playing the game. The hammer is no help... it only smashes 1 thing and that’s no help if all you need is 2 things and only have one move. Also we only get one star per game. Can we at least get two. It would be more rewarding. But there is a good side to this, this game is very fun and although the expensive things and time consuming talks it’s a good game. A couple of thing oil debt fixed and make this game better but all in all good game!
12345678900987654321goober - Pretty Good
This game is a ton of fun but when you run out of lives and can’t play anymore it is a shame. I have used all of my lives on just one level many times which means I can’t get very far in the game. The amount of moves In games are so little you need really good luck to beat the level. That can take two full sets of five lives or more depending on the level. Also the amount of stars and coins given after levels is many too few. This makes it hard to get power ups or extra lives. I do not want to say that this game is awful because it is a real Boredom buster for twenty or so minutes until you run out of lives and have to wait 15-20 minutes to continue playing. I could play this game for hours with unlimited lives and never get bored. There is always something you can do to improve Austin’s house. But without lives to play the levels you can’t do anything, the game is all a connected chain with lives at the beginning of it, if you don’t have that you can’t do anything else. Like said earlier don’t mean to hate just some constructive criticism. Overall this game is great as long as you maintain lives and coins well, the amount of fun that can be had playing this game is endless. Definitely recommend if you have a lot of spare time!
446Reviews - Not My Favorite
I think it is a fun game but with a few things that could be a lot better. First off, I saw this commercial on another app. It showed a bar at the bottom we’re you had to try and fix things by using different tools. That isn’t what you get. Instead it’s a matching game. So they need to change that commercial. Second the lives take forever. You have to wait 30 minutes to get ONE life. If it were 30 minutes for 10 it’d be a different story. Another thing is how you are not only working to get the house renovated and decorated. No you have to call Austin’s parents a cab, bake and decorate your mothers cake she needs to be baking and decorating, you have to deal with a cat you didn’t even want, and more that doesn’t have to do with house renovation. And lastly the levels give you only one or two stars even if they’re really hard. But I do like the house decorating part of the game and is the only reason I’m keeping it but If you don’t like Candy Crush and get frustrated with looking for your runaway cat every 5 minutes then don’t install this game. If you do like Candy Crush and don’t mind all that stuff and do like to decorate this is the game for you.
Also I’d recommend no t getting this game if your not interested in Austin’s love triangle thing.
mommyhaleiv - Cost-to-reward ratio is out of balance
I’ve been playing this game for several months now, and although I enjoy the gameplay, the cost-to-reward ratio is highly out of balance. For example, the costs of power-ups is 1900, 900, and 1900 coins for 3 rocket/bomb combos, 3 color-seekers, and 3 double-planes respectively. Mind you, it’s $4.99 (real money) for 5500 coins — of course the more you money you spend, the bigger “discount” you get — but that’s the least expensive package you can purchase that will at very minimum refill your power-ups. The problem I have with the game is that the “rewards” at the end of each level is MAYBE 50-70 coins (assuming you’ve completed the level with moves to spare) for the simple levels and 100 coins for the “hard levels”. So, you have to complete a significant number of levels — at least 19 of the hard levels — to even equal the cost of one power-up. Of course I know that the app developers are trying to make a living, BUT the cost-to-reward ratio needs to balance out significantly more than it does now. I’ve spent a TON of money on this game (sporadically over the time I’ve been playing it), and it is disenchanting when I’m paying more money than I’m getting in return for the play. Value counts ladies and gentlemen, and as much as I love this game, the cost is starting to disproportionately outweigh the value.
FAT $$$ CHICK - Do the developers read this?? I think not!!!
Almost all the reviews boil down to the same basic complements and complaints. So why is nothing done to change things (example; coin and star ratios for each level) I would pay for the game if it meant a more level playing field. News flash folks... like everything else on the internet the developers are out to fill their coffers and nothing more. That’s why this and every other game like it has such a low win ratio (stars & coins). They are out for your real life dollars, and don’t give a rats tail about what you think or comments you make. That’s how our society and economy work. You want to progress quicker... pay up. The only way you can change it is to not spend the money. Money or lack there of is what gets their attention nothing else. They will never read this or any other comment. Or if hell freezes over and they do, they sure don’t care about what we think of their business practices and never will as long as someone out there is spending real money to advance in the game. Bottom line... play but don’t pay otherwise no changes will ever occur.
Mr Toe Knee - Unbalanced Algorithms
Their algorithm control of the game gets quite obvious after a couple “game” days. It gets frustrating at times watching how they control the drops to undoubtedly lead to 1-3 pieces left with zero moves. Then when they additionally drop in a break item that will finish that level just spend the tokens to finish it off. All algorithm controls and sometimes unbalanced when they want you to use a saved breaker or spend coin, you can almost count on it. Then they tweak the set up during knitting weekends. A level you spent 20+ turns on is finished with well over 10 turns left, with their true intent being you earning one of the knitting prizes of bonus time, then they hit you with a “hard” rated level and turn that algorithm back up to max.
Another complaint is this game doesn’t stay true to its theme. You will spend a day baking, not upgrading house. Then you will spend many days after working on the yard as if this is garden scapes. Maybe they should incorporate the two. If I want my yard nice, I’ll play garden scapes. Meanwhile there is much of my home inaccessible and needing attention while in our cutting weeds.
As for the basis of the game, fun enough to get 3 stars only because I still play it, but if I wasn’t hooked, it would be a 2 star for sure.
picklejuice19 - Misleading
All the ads on other apps only showed what turned out to be the “mini-games.” I downloaded it thinking these very rare games were the whole point of the app. Nope. It’s basically glorified Candy Crush except somehow I’m funding the reconstruction of a butler’s dilapidated childhood home with my wins. It doesn’t make any sense. How can a butler afford to buy thousands of dollars in furniture and home repairs? Or is he using his parents’ money? Or are my wins actually some kind of currency in this imaginary world? If the latter is the case, why do I also have to pay for things like calling people on the phone, opening boxes, and accepting deliveries?? It’s an incredibly slow moving game with very little payoff. I wanted to play the mini-games but false advertising led me to paying for incredibly lazy people to repair their home that has apparently never been cleaned. Who lets their house just decay like that?? And their son’s literal job is to clean other people’s houses. Why is he wasting his time fixing up his parents’ house when they’re just going to keep neglecting it? I really don’t like the parents. They also wanted to sell the house initially so they could move on and ruin another house. I think the butler should move on with his life and stop wasting my hard-earned fantasy money on his destructive and toxic parents.
UsedAbused-- - EXTREMELY UNFAIR!!!!
I had joined a team and during a race I had helped out the team tremendously providing lives constantly morning, noon, and night. By the time the race was over I was kicked off the team before I could even collect my winnings. I would have had 6000 coins, but instead I was kicked off the team! That is EXTREMELY UNFAIR when you have exhausted all the boosters & coins you had going into the race helping that team win and they UNFAIRLY kick you out!! That should NOT BE ALLOWED!!! I hope the developers of this game are listening the name of that team is “BIG HELPERS” with “Will” as the leader and other main members are “hani”, “Cas”, “taylor”, “Tawna”, “Stilettospy”, “singyousinners”, “Cattails”, “Jojo”, “Red”, “Alba”. “Free lives and have fun. If you don’t plan on helping A LOT, please don’t join...” is what they claim, but in my case I HELPED that team and they still kicked me out! Hope the developers of this game do something about this because this was UNFAIR!!!
PS - game definitely not for kids, a bad experience like the one I had would be devastating on a kid.
Other than the abusive incident I described above, and the fact that the levels do get extremely harder and expensive as you try to continue (and I’m at Level 665) I really like the game. Unfortunately, this is the end of my rope. This experience has been so upsetting, I will be deleting this game if nothing is done about this abusive team.
Ellyessa - Fun but unbalanced
I’ve always enjoyed the simplicity of these match three candy crush type games. I also enjoy a bit of a challenge, it keeps me from beating a game too rapidly or getting bored. That said this game is ridiculously unbalanced. It is near impossible to beat a level without using power ups, additional moves, if not both. Not everyone is inclined or able to spend obscene amounts of money to actually do that. I’ve been stuck on level 24 for days, the difficulty of it reminds me of level 700+ in Gardenscapes. With Gardenscapes there is a least the daily spin and events that allow to get items, coins and other useful things, which nicely balances out the increasingly difficulty of the levels. Homescapes lacks all of these along with it being insanely difficult right off the get go. Not a good way to keep players, where I may be happy to spend a few bucks every so often on a game that is well balanced like Gardenscapes I feel as if any money spent on this game would be a waste and give the wrong impression to developers that this type of money hungry tactic is acceptable. Overall I think this game does have a lot of potential but unless the balance issue is fixed my rating is 2 stars at best as the money hungry tactic irritates me endlessly. If proper balance is added in I’ll be happy to change my review.
sumokap - Level 1913 and beyond
I have enjoyed this game and have found it relaxing and fun. That was before level 1913. I liked it because I could always advance. Beating difficult levels may have taken MULTIPLE attempts but didn’t require having to spend money. However, within the game there are weekly contests where you’re placed on teams. The better you do the higher your team level placement. When you’re ranked in the lower levels I’m convinced this game randomly “loosens up” and you’re able to go on winning streaks (doing so allows you to accumulate coins to help Austin fix the house, which is the point of the game, right?). Likewise, I’m convinced when you do well and find yourself in a higher level, the game “tightens up” and it’s impossible to win any level without spending coin, either real or earned. When I got to level 1913 I got placed in the highest ranking level. Since then I have not been able to get, even close, to beating a level without earning enough extra coins (by watching ads, etc.) to buy my way through. It takes a looooong time to earn those coins! Relaxing and fun not so much anymore...
The Chocolate Taffy Singer - A lot of fun and a good story, but...
I really enjoy playing this game, and I enjoy unfolding the story line and remodeling the house. However, some of the levels are so difficult and rely so much on the luck of the game’s algorithms that they become annoying instead of enjoyable. I am presently on level 730 or so, and it is rated “super hard”. I have been trying to beat the level for well over forty plays. But there are not enough moves if the luck of the draw doesn’t go your way. So for almost a week, I have not advanced a level, and the story has also stopped. When I finally do beat this level, it still won’t be as much fun as it was at first, because about every third level is “hard” or “super hard”, and even some of the supposedly easier levels are nearly impossible (and for those so-called easy levels, you only earn one star for a lot of time spent going nowhere. It would not be so frustrating to face a difficult level if there were more skill involved, but the tile production is almost totally chance and some of the power ups glitch and don't give any advantage. I like this game but I am almost at the point of giving it up because I don’t have fun playing for several hours just to beat three or four levels.
jess.pastrick - Need to spend too much money
I have been playing for a long time, and truly enjoy it. However, as you advance farther and farther, the levels get naturally more difficult. My complaint that the initial fee to keeping trying after you run out of moves is 900 coins. When you beat a level, you get an estimate of 50 coins or so, unless it’s a “hard level,” then you get 100 coins. It basically comes down to you have to start using real cash to keep playing if you want to, because continuing to play a level costs 900 coins and gives you 5 moves. Once those moves are gone, it’s an additional 1,200 coins. It can be incredibly frustrating when I have only one more move left to beat the level and am faced with having to spend real money to get those 1,200 coins, or give up and play the whole level over and waste the 900 coins i already spent trying to beat it. I’m on a level around 170, and have been enjoying it, but may not continue much longer if the ratio of coins to prices does not change. Also, when you beat a level, you only get one additional coin for each power up (such as a bomb or flying arrow) you have remaining. If those power ups go off, and create 5 matches, you still only get 1 coin for each power up. I think any additional matches made should receive coins as well
Gfromsd23 - The reason I don’t play games
Saw this ad and decided I would try it out. It was a fun and engaging game. Then you start to see how at every level you’re one or two away from winning. What do they want you to do?? Use the coins you win to get 5 more chances. Buuuut....you barely receive coins for finishing levels so you end up losing a lot of levels barely. The only other way is too pay for additional coins to beat these levels. They trying to get those with addictive personalities and competitive to keep charging the almighty buck. It’s like the casinos, they’re set up to win and take your money. Whether it’s .99 or more, game is designed to take your money if you choose to continue playing.
Another thing I noticed about the game is the boosters are pretty worthless when you need them the most. If you need the arrow booster to point down so you can have it take out the pieces, it points to the side instead. Or if you use the paper planes, it goes to take out another useless piece instead of the one you need. There should be an option where you guide it where it needs to go. I always get bombs in the middle of puzzle which is useless if you’re trying to win certain objectives. It was frustrating while it lasted, but homesscapes goes to the games graveyard with the other ones.
Goofychicana - Kinda Fun, But Not What Promo Showed
The promo for this game kept popping up during my word puzzle game. I gave in and downloaded it. Thought the game was about saving the characters from harm (e.g. mean dog, old lady w/ rolling pin, burglars) by figuring out the puzzle and moving large keys around. But that is actually like a bonus offer to get more coins in the game. Who knew it’s about doing tasks to help this man fix up his childhood home. Playing mini “match” games that doesn’t seem fair and if you’re lucky and get four of the same objects together and you get a bomb or a paper plane to clear out the board in time to win, you get ONE star and a few coins. Some tasks needs only one star per task and others may need two. So many tasks and gaining only one star per increasingly difficult wins takes forever. Game doesn’t make you feel like you’re making actual progress. You can buy lives for 900 coins, but you don’t earn a enough per game win to chose that option anytime soon. Same problem if you wait for free. It takes hours to fill up on lives. There’s a limit of FIVE. Found that out when I won a game and the lives counter didn’t increase. The game would be better if there were more of what the promos are about-saving the characters. As well as more chances to get coins and lives.
rachlovesgod - Mini casino
Why do I get the feeling I’m playing in a mini casino? Just like the casino slots they know how to line up every move when you think your so close and you just have to complete the level, however surprise surprise your out of moves! Oh $.99 no big deal to stay in the game when only need to move one piece. (Rarely happens that you clear it at the higher level without paying a lot more) nothing is free! Hahaha yes the psychology of it all. I keep falling for it $10 $20 later... They keep you hanging onto the reel like a Vegas slot machine. Have fun. Addicting as always. No one to blame but myself to continue to support these “house always wins games” 😂not worth it honestly. You can spend $10 on something much more lasting. And I’m sure other players spend more then $10 or $20. Check out other games!! I will say housescapes is the worst when it comes to clearing the board however at least you can trade your coins in for more play unlike other games. However short lived. When they have the little bombs they go the way you want them to when you have many moves left however as soon as you are down to the wire and need the bomb things (or whatever they are) to go a certain direction? Nope goes the opposite way. Such a scam 😂Funny thing is downloaded the app for my nieces and I am the one that got sucked into it! Have fun however beware!
tamia21 - Addictive, but too expensive to keep playing.
I love the game, but it’s too expensive to keep playing especially when they make getting thru the levels unnecessarily hard but don’t reward you with enough coins & stars. Other games I play that are similar puzzle games, allow you to add additional lives before you start a board as well offer more boosters...you should be able to visit other players homes as well, to see how they decorated and also to earn more coins and stars and also become neighbors with random players you don’t have to become friends with on Facebook but just need to get more lives, boosters, coins & stars. Increasing the number of stars to perform task is unfair especially when you don’t earn more stars for passing more or difficult levels...we should also be able to put the boosters on the board where we want to place it, especially if you need it to help you pass the board, or be able to store it in your “booster bank”, until you want to use it...it shouldn’t cost so much to add additional moves when you choose that option in order to finish a board/level, 900+ coins is absolutely ridiculous. If you offer more perks/better rewards you will keep ur players happy & they’ll want to keep playing.
Lilladypurple - I love it!
I can't get enough of Homescapes. I don't want to stop playing but I run out of lives so I have no choice. Lol. I think I like it better than Gardenscapes and I love Gardenscapes too. I like how you can put different types of explosives together or two of the same to make a bigger explosive. It would be even greater if you could put more than two together. I've had three explosives lined together but I can't mix all three together. I haven't had 4 or more alined but that would be more awesome. With Gardenscapes it seems like I'm not able to complete and able to upgrade or rebuild anything as quickly as I seem to be able to with Homescapes. So if you wanted to change something with Gardenscapes that would be one thing. I guess it's a little harder to complete a level. You can't mix two explosives like you can with Homescapes. It's just totally different with the match game with Homescapes it seems to me. I love it and I can't get enough of it. I'm always wondering what the next level is going to be like. I recommend Homescapes to everyone who likes to play games like this to take a break from your every day Life. Very enjoyable.
thelonelyphilologist - Sad to say goodbye...
Update March 2019: Dropped three stars because I’m ridiculously annoyed with the false advertising pop-ups I’ve been getting for this in other games. Not only does it give a false impression of what the game is like, but you copied the entire ad exactly from Matchington Mansion. Seriously? Terrible marketing ethics.
Original review: I’m giving this game five stars despite being annoyed with the trend of the updates since February, since I can see from the other reviews that what I now strongly dislike is what tons of other players have been asking for. I was enjoying how this is different from Gardenscapes (which I played for a few weeks and then uninstalled because it wasn’t remotely relaxing with all the pop ups, events, etc.). Personally, I really don’t want events and other things that interfere with, or layer on to, the storyline. I liked the quiet and simplicity of just working my way through it. I’m sad that impatient players ruined what was a lovely game. :( I’ve been enjoying this game since September, made it to level 957, but since it started introducing a lot of the same elements as Gardenscapes because so many players can’t figure out how to beat levels without spending money (I’ve never spent a dime on this game and was getting along swimmingly), I am finally abandoning it.
KC Kappel - Clever Storyline, Believable Characters, Challenging Gameplay
This game is very simple to play. A variation on the ‘match 3’ games, but with So Much More! I’ve never played a game where the characters were this real before. There are two young adults looking for love, the content long-married older couple, the mail person, the mechanic, the busy-body nosy neighbor, ....very detailed characters who make progressing the story fun! There are many things to do besides just playing the game. You can even read the pretend neighborhood ‘Facebook’ page, which is seriously cute and creative!
You are able to have 20 ‘lives’ saved up, which help on those ‘super hard’ levels, and it is not difficult to get more lives from friends. Unfortunately, the lives replenish slowly with no way to decrease the time limit. I would love to see the developers decrease the life refresh rate per 100 levels completed, for example.
The social aspect of Teams is fun and has added a unique feature to this already fantastic game.
This game has something for everyone. Definitely one of my favorite time wasters! Austin and his neighbors make me happy!
Cindy K - IL - Key levels are sucking the fun out
I used to love this game, totally warranted the 5 star rating. But once I advanced to the point where I’ve completed all of the levels and I have to wait weekly for new ones to drop, the game goes downhill. The game provides “key” levels to open boxes with a minimal amount of coins or sometimes power ups or stars. But the key levels are far, far too hard. There are multiple levels I’ve had to play 20 times or more and still never get past it. There’s no special reward for key levels either - each only worth 50 coins regardless of difficulty. And not getting past them despite dozens of tries means losing in all of the individual and team challenges.
Please, either release more new levels sooner, ease up on the difficulty of the key levels, or find an alternative way for us to handle challenges. But right now, the game isn’t very fun the way it is.
(Ps, I also noticed the small changes to make the levels even more difficult. Paper airplanes no longer will open shades or target the boxes with only the rings. And when 4-5 of the same pieces drop they break down into a 3 group and then leave the remaining two instead of leaving the power up. Again, more difficult is less fun)
svensjatjey - Love the game -a few tweaks I’d make
Sometimes my reward is 1-3 hours of play which is great but invariably I get that when I’m taking a 15 minute break from work. I’d love to be able to store it for future use when I have 3 hours to waste playing games.
Also the 900 coins for 5 moves is a little annoying. I’d like to be able to use 100 coins for each move I want to add. I might only use one more move to win and I just wasted 900 coins or it takes me 6 moves but to up the ante a second time costs another 1200 coins. How often do people use the 2100 coins for an extra 10 moves and if they do, did it take them another 5 moves to win or just 1? Let us dish out 100 coins at a time or buy more bombs or something.
Love building the house with the wins but start a new day? Really? That’s usually like mid-day or something when it comes up and it might take me 5 days to win the two levels to start a new day. Doesn’t feel value added.
And sometimes the tasks are super easy like call someone and it takes 2 games to do it. I’d rather that be one and replace flooring be 5-6. But overall it’s kept me playing for a long time and I’m not bored yet do keep the levels coming.
Kneenee's and Kayden - Best game I have ever played in my life

woowies10 - fun BUT...
so i’ve actually be playing this game for a long time and rather enjoy it-it’s something to keep my mind sharp so the added bonus of being able to design your home is just a plus. this game relates heavily to like a candy crush or anything where you have to eliminate the shapes (“candy”) to complete the level. some of them are hard but that’s the point, cool thing is you can make your own power ups if you organize your shapes in certain ways-helpful. the issues that i don’t like is that when you run out of lives (and you don’t have any coins-or your team hasn’t sent you any) it takes 25/30 minutes to get just ONE back! lame-also it’s false advertisement where in the ad to either this game or gardenscapes has you make choices to complete tasks....NOWHERE IN EITHER GAME will this ever be done! it’s always just the mode where you’re eliminating shapes. when i first downloaded the game this was very disappointing to me, now it’s whatever but still not ok if that’s what you are expecting. this is a fun game though, and has some other cool features-i suggest the download to see if you like it!
Bernie's wife - Love the game/concept... except a few things..
I have recently started playing the game. I love the idea of breaking up the monotony of playing level after level of matching by renovating the home. I have played a lot of app games over the years, and this is different. I do have a few small complaints/criticism/suggestions. I think it takes too long to renew your lives. I am not going to dump money into renewing lives, I would rather do it to complete a difficult round that I have struggled with. The monetary reward seems quite minimal as well. You can go 15 levels without using any coins and still not have enough to help you the one time you need the extra five moves, without spending money. It doesn’t add up quickly, so it tends to get frustrating. I think the biggest complaint I have is, that I have both Gardenscapes and Homescapes and I prefer the homescapes by far! However, I have spent my last several levels and Money into renovating my garden on homescapes. If I wanted to garden I would play Gardenscapes. I have dumped a lot of money into this game, but quite honestly if I don’t soon get out of the garden and get back into the house I’m going to delete them both and find another home renovation type game to spend my money on.
stellaBK - Frustrating, yet I keep playing...
The pros of the game are listed in the developers section. It is fun decorating the house and that was the #1 reason I downloaded this game. I don’t care about 3 match play. I care about renovating the house. Unfortunately, the developers have put many limits on this game making it less and less appealing to me. For example, I am on level 107 out of several hundred. MANY of these levels I’ve played on for DAYS just to complete them! I wish the levels weren’t SO tough. If the levels are very tough they still only give out one star, and most of Austin’s renovations are 2 stars a piece. Also, you only get five lives at a time. So, imagine how frustrating and long it will be if you wanted to “select new kitchen tile” 2 stars, a level that will take you a minimum of 45 tries to complete, and 5 lives as a time. Also, I keep a reserve of boosters. When I order to use a booster, I expect the game to let me use the booster to benefit me. Often times it was worthless and a waste of “in game plays”. That’s another complaint I have: Not enough “moves” in a level most of the time: Repeat the level! It’s all very frustrating. Yet I still play, just not at the enjoyment and personal satisfaction level it could be if it were easier and I could do a lot of renovating.
Lindyryan - Enjoyable but has some shortcomings
I’ve been playing this game for a while and it’s enjoyable, occasionally challenging, and a good way to kill some time. However, I would really like to see some better incentives to keep players in the game. For some of the side challenges (e.g. knitting), the rewards, such as unlimited lives for a certain period of time, are given immediately. If I had the option to save that reward for a rainy day, perhaps when I’m tackling a particularly difficult level, I’d be more inclined to play for longer periods of time. When this happens, however, it’s almost always the case that I don’t have the time to actually use said reward and it ends up being useless.
I’d also like to see the coin rewards have a better balance. 50-70 coins as a reward for each level won? Come on! What about an additional ten or so coins for each remaining turn? Say if I’ve beaten a level and I have five turns left. I should win the base coins of fifty and then an additional fifty for each turn I didn’t use. For harder levels, base coins of 100 and then an additional fifty coins for each additional remaining turn. Now THAT’S an incentive! That would be rad.
Otherwise, fun game!
KerinaC - Needs some work
Good concept and fun in the beginning but it gets ridiculously difficult too quickly and does not improve. Can take days and days to finish one level. There are not enough incentives to make it worth spending any real time on. I will play when I have nothing better to do because other games that allow longer play time hold my interest more.
The issue could be easily fixed with some simple tweaks like more moves per level, more lives, daily bonuses, refilling lives when a new day starts, making the extras boosts have consistent and greater power. As it stands now, I can't see this game getting too much traction because what small incentives you currently get have inconsistent damage value from level to level. The coins obtained vary greatly, the incentives are too expensive. A blast that removes all pieces in a row on one level only removes one or two pieces on another. And lastly, You have not given enough coins as a reward to actually purchase the power ups and force players to spend way too much real world money to be able to beat levels. While I will admit I spent 15$ seeing if it would improve, Im not of a mind to spend any more. Definitely won't hold my interest long if it stays this difficult.
Zenbenbenbenben215ben - Addictive game
This game has been great for a total amount of time. I think we should have an improvement or 2 (I’m not sure if it is 2, but it’s still worth the game) for this. It has an excellent interference facing the game but there can be simply a better idea for the game. Also, it has a awesome story. It tells about a person about a house that has to be renovated. This takes talent. The only way is that we did our skills. And the puzzles facing our ways. That’s the concert. To be honest, it also has days. This never happened in most games in my life. The only reason why because we have to fix the house. I don’t know why else. But it can also be dived into sections of the game. This is what a like so much. This app appears to be too similar to Candy Crush. But it has different things to do. And this is also having similar power ups. One more thing before closing the review. 900 coins is a lot for 5 moves. I think you need 1/3 of the amount (300 coins) and save 900 coins for 5 more moves and another thing. Overall it is a good game. I hope you have a wonderful update very soon. Great game 5/5 stars.
GotYour# - Not today satan!
This would be a decent game if... there wasn’t an agenda to scam you for money. I definitely can tell that they made the game nearly impossible on some levels to compel you to purchase with real $ to keep playing. I did give it a 2 because it is engaging and interesting but the advertisements are click bait and the game intentionally gets you hooked and drives you nuts to the point of purchasing just to get past a level. I actually made it to level 187 I believe and I’ve noticed on several occasions where my power ups would be duds. My airplanes would hit donuts and would take out pieces I intended to use for power ups instead of a place that is useful. I’ve noticed on some levels that there are no good plays over and over which in turn makes you loose over and over. I realize that is computer generated but I can’t help but to think that the coding here is intentional to manipulate you to spend your $. I don’t find it smart to spend $ on these games so I’ll never use my real $ for this. And word of the wise to the creators... first make a game that actually does fit the advertising and make it winnable! People like will lose patience with this. It causes stress and not relief. People like to win! Not lose a hundred times over! And smart people don’t want to waste their $!
Ths crazy one - I love this game!
I really love this game, it’s so addictive, and a really fun game to play when your bored. But I don’t like how we have to do stupid tasks like “call someone” for up to 6 stars!! We don’t get enough coins for winning levels! Also when you get into the game more, it takes so much longer to finish a day, it’ll be like 6% closer to rewards when you win a level. Also I don’t like how we only have five lives. I feel like we should have more lives than only 5! The game’s really fun but there is some stupidity to it like tasks cost so much, but u only get one star for each level, and for every normal level, 50 coins. But if you want more moves after you use them all up, it costs 900 coins. I think that is way too expensive. And I hate how long it takes for lives to refill! Like, 30 minutes to wait for one live! Also, for the harder levels, I think that we should get more stars, not only one!! I think that if they’re going to go all the way and say that it’s a “super hard level” then they should act like it and give more stars once the level is completed!! But I would advise you to get this game. It’s really fun, but it can be bad and annoying.
Yourredns - I want to like this game
BUT.... you do not win enough coins per game to ever feel ahead but they are quick to take 900 coins for an extension of just 5 plays to win a single game. The power boosters don’t seem to be all that powerful or “smart”. I have watched as I have lost more than one game as my airplane flies to something pointless instead of what could win the game. The other complaint is how many stars it takes to complete one task. You earn 1 star for every game you (finally) win. At first, tasks cost 1 Star but as you advance, tasks begin costing more. And it’s ridiculous! For example, I just wasted 2 stars to clean up some books and Austin merely set them on a table. Earning 2 stars at level 384 takes SEVERAL attempts as the levels are harder. I am sure the creators of the game would like you to spend real money, but I refuse. Why can’t someone just make a game that is fun to play, doesn’t want my real money, and doesn’t frustrate the crap out of you?!?! Any chance some of these issues would ever be addressed creators of Homescapes???
Update: winning levels takes a huge amount of time AND the boosters are a JOKE! This game needs help, but with all the negative reviews it doesn’t seem the creators are interested in changing a thing. They would rather take your money. Don’t waste your time. And heaven forbid, DO NOT use REAL MONEY for games!
PriestGoebell - Too much trouble for too little return
I started out liking this game, but it soon became clear to me that the game is designed to get you to spend any money you have in order to get lives or extended play (when you only have one match left to make for instance). And as the game progresses, the cost in stars for newer items grows greater and greater! And to top it all off, the game has you spending tons of stars on items inside the garage!! I mean, come on! This is just too much trouble for too little return. I’ve spent considerable money on this game, but now I am going to quit playing until the developers give the players options like where they want to spend their stars and quit charging stars for the beginning of a new day! And quit charging so many stars for newer items as you get further into the game ( like what cost one star at the beginning level now costs three stars)! It’s ridiculous and I am not happy about getting rewards of extra play time that I cannot control. I have to use the time immediately or it just runs out. What good does that do me if I am about to fall asleep when I get two hours playing time? The answer is: No good!! So my rating for this game has gone down, down, down in the dungeon 🤬😡😠
mybadback - I’m over Freemium
Bejeweled introduced me to tile matching games and it’s entertaining classic version left me with the hope all the other ads I saw using the same tile idea would give me the same satisfaction. I only tried this one because dragging the wrench over the leaky sink and fire extinguisher over the burning stove seamed like a fun idea. At least that’s what all the (in my face) promos showed. At first the immediate gratification of cleaning up the mansion with the tile games was ok and fun. I kept thinking the “drag the tools” over the situational problems side games would show up soon. Nope. I’m early in the game at level 60, out of coins of course and stuck on a “super hard” tile level for days now. It’s telling me how much easier the level would be with some power ups and quickly brings up the shopping window with prices. I naively always hope there’s a freemium game out there I can play with patience. As rare as finding a gold nugget in a river. So I’ve accepted the reality that one, within reason, I can’t continue without real world currency and two, as a result of one, I’ll never see the side of the game that had been relentlessly promoted to me, ie: the wrench over the leaky sink and such. I’m not going to fall into the money pits anymore and urge everyone who wants to see change to do the same. Because developers won’t change until we do.
Minski2 - Money Hungry & Very Hard to Win
This game was really fun at first but just like Fishdom & Gardenscapes the game is so hard to win a level that it gets more frustrating than it is enjoyable to play. I also thought u were supposed to be renovating the house bt hav spent many unnecessary stars making a cake & fixing up the garden. It has u doing so many unnecessary things that have nothing to do with renovating. The rewards are awful & you have to always use some type of power up to win a level & some levels I’ve used every power up & still didn’t win. U have to win 18 levels to get 900 coins so u can get only 5 extra moves that most of the time still aren’t enough to win. U would think wen u use the ball with a bomb or plane that u would at least win the level or it help u advance towards winning bt it’s gotten where that doesn’t work like it use to. This game could & should b enjoyable to play bt it’s gotten jus like the others. Why can’t u let people win so more would want to play than delete the game. This game will hav it’s few that stay bt many will move on to a game that is actually fun to play due to u winning & not having to spend alot of money to play. The people that say they don’t have to pay to play are the critics that get paid to say those reviews. Another game that could & should hav been a keeper will b another game deleted.
Terrier1979 - Enjoyable game with some accessibility issues.
I enjoy this game but as I have progressed I have run into a major problem with the ice bombs. I often keep my tablet in monochrome setting and for the most part this doesn’t inhibit game play as the shapes are so different. However the ice bombs are all the same shape and in grayscale I cannot tell them apart as they are too close in tone to their one another and not identical in tone to the matching shape. It is frustrating.
On a completely different note. I am convinced Austin is dead and this whole game is an afterlife experience. Otherwise the back story of him as a butler (second generation no less) whose family as this fabulous history and mansion makes very little sense. The butler conceit causes other problems as well. I HATE having to spend stars to sweep or dust when Austin sweeps to “alienate boredom,” and often enough to warrant concerns about it being an obsessive behavior... maybe he isn’t dead, maybe his parents sent him to a special program for individuals with extreme obsessive behavior, the Institute wasn’t a school for butlers, it was an institution for individuals with special needs such as delusional thinking and obsessive behavior.
Dark-chan - It is fun for a little while, but...
It is fun to play at first; however once you start climbing the ladder, puzzles get ridiculously hard, there's no real award besides one star and somethings take two or three stars to complete. They even labeled some levels as being really hard and I can sometimes I those on the first round and then normal levels take me three days to get through. I don't mind spending a little money on games like these; however, if I don't feel like I'm getting anything for it why am I going to continue to spend the money on it. I feel like if the levels are going to be this difficult then 9 times out of 10 the goals should be only one star, none of this starting the new day takes TWO stars or turning off water takes TWO stars. I'm only in the kitchen(3rd room) and I have to spend two stars on almost everything. I have been playing this game for over 5 months, part of me thought maybe I was just bad it is; however, my brother who is very good at puzzle games barely got through the 2nd room. I just wish they would make it a tiny bit easier considering how the mansion is ridiculously huge and it will probably take me the rest of my life to try and go through it
Ahh I love them!! - It’s okay...
Ive been playing the game for a while. i liked it more at first, but there are a few things that have been frustrating me lately. The further you get into the game, the more stars you have to spend for each activity to improve the house (not to mention all the wasted time you spend working outside of the house in the garden UGH!). You spend 3 stars to fix something, only for it to get broken somehow, then you have to spend another 3 stars to fix it again. It’s satisfying to complete a room but it takes FOREVER. Seems like the app developers intentionally tried to make everything as long and drawn out as possible. I also don’t like the “boosters”. They make it harder to beat the level, and the booster is specifically placed in an area where it won’t really help you that much to use it anyways. The player should be able to decide where the booster is placed. I also think there should be a booster that allows you to reshuffle the board without wasting a bunch of moves. That likely won’t happen though, it seems like the game is specifically designed to frustrate you in hopes that you’ll give in and spend money on extra moves or coins. That’s why there’s constant pressure to buy buy BUY.
Gesner4435 - Scammers......
I agree with what the person wrote about how Gardenscapes MAKES you pay money in order to play!!!! It’s terrible how they have scammed people who would like to play a game that doesn’t take them for everything they have!!! I could go on and on about how they scam gamers but it does no good. They obviously don’t care if they have long term players or not. Homescapes is EXACTLY LIKE GARDENSCAPES!!! Get ready to fork out a lot of you money if you elect to get caught up in this game as well. I won’t be as stupid with this game as I have been with Gardenscapes. I just won’t play enough for them to take my money in Homescapes. These game companies must laugh all the way to the bank watching us fork out the kind of money it takes to play Gardenscapes and now a Homescapes!!! It angers me greatly but I’ve already played too long and have invested too much in Gardenscapes
to stop at this point in time. When I’ve completed all levels I’ll put the game down never to return to it again! Sad!!! What’s even sadder is that the game companies do not give one single thought to our suggestions or complaints. Why should they? We just complain and keep paying the money to have something to do and money is all the companies care about! The definition of scammer is Gardenscapes. Now we have an added game to the definition of scammer........Homescapes!!!
Good luck to all!!!
Anneish - Shameless cash grab
Don’t download! You’ll end up either feeling dumb and cheated or getting nowhere. I made the mistake of downloading this game during finals week. Not generally prone to making in app purchases for freemium games. I am now level 277, but I spent $150 to get there (embarrassed to say). I do play my fair share of “freemium” apps, but most of them have reasonable one time purchases, or an option to watch an ad to keep playing. This one feels specifically designed to get you addicted and then test your willpower in the moment so you don’t waste all of your progress. After every (2-min) level, if you don’t get it on your first try there’s an ad which says “pay 900 coins to keep going or you will LOSE X bonus or Y currency you’ve earned.”
So not only is it pay to win, it’s also pay to NOT LOSE. A game you play at home to wind down should not be more expensive than your weekly grocery bill if you’re low on willpower. I know they mean to make money but this is the most predatory game I have ever come across. I’m not personally in any financial trouble because of my stupidity this week before finals, but this not ethical and I’d hate for someone to get in a bad spot due to a stupid game that looks relaxing from its advertisements. From other reviews I’ve read, all games from this company have a similar formula.
ifimreviewingitsserious - incredibly inappropriate
I downloaded and played this game a while ago, and was not interested in it at all. The old advertisements made it seem strictly renovation-based, which is false as the majority of what I did was the same as the Bejeweled games. If I want to play Bejeweled, I would play that.
The main reason behind my 1 star rating and title is the advertisements for this game (as well as Gardenscapes). This game primarily appeals to children, but the advertisements are extremely horrible, and have absolutely nothing to do with the game to begin with. The advertisement which is a spoof of the movie “It” is not something I would recommend when trying to sell your game to young children. Children are often already afraid of clowns, and you are putting the scariest clown chasing a character in your advertisement. Not only is that advertisement horrible, but there is one with the man tied to a bed with handcuffs and ribbons....do you REALLY think that is appropriate? Using vivid images which instill fear in children- a good portion of the game’s players?
The people behind these advertisements- those who proposed them, those who animated them, those who approved them, and those who paid for them to be played- all deserve to get fired. Fear is not the base of this game, but that is how the absolute garbage of advertisements is coming across. Good job.
dhdrhvfu - Don’t bother it is a SCAM
This game is not how it is advertised. I thought that it was going to be figuring out how to fix the house instead of playing these ridiculously complicated and over the top Tetris games. It is a SCAM! Eventually after a billion stupid Tetris games, you get stuck on one of them and you have to buy more time just to be able to pass it. I have better things to do with my time and money. I only got this game because it advertised one of my other games as a “fix it” type of game. The house would be falling into shambles and you had to figure out what was needed out of the items available to fix it. It never advertised any of this Tetris crap that you had to do just to get to that freaking point, which I still haven’t been able to do! That is the game that I thought I was getting, but NO instead I got a stupid Tetris game. If I wanted that then I will play Tetris or candy crush! This is a HUGE waste of time. In fact, I thought that perhaps I had the wrong game at first because it did not look like the ad. Apparently it is the right game, but it is NOT AT ALL HOW I PICTURED IT! Now, I don’t mind Tetris games, but that is not how this game is being advertised! It is being advertised as a fun “figure out how to fix it” game. I want that game please, NOT TETRIS!! As I stated there are better Tetris games than this!
NYCf00di3 - I love this game
Idk if it’s only me but I love this games soundtrack the music is so beautiful. I never really thought of myself as a fan of Jazz but the music is just so freaking good. I love that it’s a game within a game and you get to play and the boards and also complete tasks to decorate. I think the characters are absolutely adorable. I just love the game in general especially the soundtrack! Did I mention the soundtrack ? Still I didn’t give it 5 stars because 900 coins to continue a level you’ve almost beat is just ridiculous and the count go really really fast. I won’t lie I have spent at least $30 in total on buying coins they’ve had me hooked. That was far enough though and I figure I spend a lot of money on dumb things why not on something I enjoy doing and that also relaxes me ? Still they won’t get anymore out of me than that. I usually just wait until they are giving a lot of hrs of lives and play as many boards as I can until I beat them. I don’t sleep much at night so I play either then or in my free time. Still I think the game is absolutely adorable and well thought out. The visuals are lovely as well. Job well done.
ramenGoD17 - Fun but False
I enjoy this game. It really shows you how to design and create a home of your dreams. However, I do have some concerns about the game. First off, this game is falsely advertised. I had downloaded this app after seeing the ad play on my phone MANY times. In the ads, there is usually one or two people with a problem. The player of the ad or the computer playing has to choose the right solution to that problem. After you click a solution, another problem will appear within the first one. You keep going until you win by solving all of the issues correctly or fail by killing and/or injuring the people. I was very interested, so I downloaded the app. I learned the hard way that this app has NOTHING to do with that. It is about matching things so you can fix and design a house. The matching is also a problem. I don't really mind having to beat a matching level to do a task, but it takes effort! And the worst part is that you only get ONE star! It should be at LEAST be three or four stars so the process of doing all the tasks doesn't take so long. Overall, this game is good but it still has issues to be worked out. I hope you listen to my (and other people's ) reviews, so that this game can be better for everyone.
Tracy713 - Fun Enough for a Match-3 But So Misleading
Don’t believe the ads that show this as a “choose the right tool” or “pull the right pin” type of game. It’s not. It’s match 3 and has been from the start. It’s entertaining for what it is, and you can earn points to change the look of the rooms in the house. But it’s not what it claims to be.
I had deleted the game but just downloaded it again after seeing in the App Store that they have added mini games similar to what they advertise. Only they haven’t. If you file a complaint with them, they’ll say those are “test features” that not everyone has access to. I’m not sure I believe that, because they lie in an automated response to complaints about the game not matching the ads. They apologize in this automated response but they’re not sorry. They’re going to keep using the misleading ads because, frankly, they work. It gets them downloads, which gets them money.
So, bottom line: if you like match 3 and decorating type games, you’ll probably enjoy this, but if you’re downloading it because you like what you see in the ads, you’ll be disappointed. (This is also true for Matchington Mansion and Gardenscapes, but I was sucked into Gardenscapes long before I saw any of those terrible ads.)
