Well developed gameI do indeed enjoy playing this game. I play it normally thru out the day. It helps the time go by quickly. The only thing that bothers me is the hard and extra hard part of the game. I realize that it breaks up the monotony, but, I spend days sometimes trying to beat the level. But, it is good that the hard and extra hard are few and far between, so it’s not overwhelming, it’s a good change of pace. And, as others have said, rewards are few and far between as well. Especially with the hard levels, the rewards are just this: your normal level low coin reward is doubled and you are rewarded with one extra star. I know you have to make money in this venture, but, your doing it to the detriment of your customers. There is a reason we play games that say that they are free, it’s because a lot of us do not have the funds to use actual money to progress farther in the game faster then the other players that can afford to use their hard earned money. In conclusion, I think this game is well worth 5 stars, however, I did only give it 4 stars on account of the hard and very hard levels & the lack of well deserved rewards. I think there should be better rewards and it should be a little easier to get stars. Just my opinion for what it’s worth. But, great game!.Version: 1.3.0

Good but some things to tweakSome of the things you’ve advertised were the multiple choice things, and there have been a lot of complaints about the mini games, I would strongly suggest to have a mini game button to play so players don’t get so annoyed and it would be so much more fun too. With those mini games you could have rewards like hearts, or money because another thing a lot of people don’t like is the limited hearts. So by adding the mini games you would be able to take out the false advertising issue and the hearts issue. Make it easier for you so you don’t get as many complaints, and make it a lot more fun for players like me who enjoy playing but can’t stand the hearts. Also side note, on harder levels you should add more stars as a reward, although I don’t have an issue with it I’ve read some reviews and agree that on harder levels there should be more stars. Please take all this into consideration. -thanks x.Version: 4.7.2

An Amazing and addictive game but the advert is very misleading.Recently when playing other games I’ve come across adverts for this game (which I’ve had for some time now) and the content of the video relates to absolutely nothing of the in game content. He’s never in a life threatening situation and we do not save him or accidentally make things worse for him. We play some levels and re-build an estate. It’s rather annoying when you see an advert like this, I understand the appeal to make it interesting but you’re attempting to advertise to the wrong audience. Advertising to people who are stereotypically on their phones 24/7, by which I mean teenagers, doesn’t really fit your supposed demographic. Again I’ll come back to the annoying part of these misleading adverts; what I see in an advert is what I expect to get. If I see a man surrounded by fire I expect to see that in the game and him surrounded by fire and with a chance of dying if I make the wrong choice. In this game however, there are no wrong choices and it’s based on your own interior and exterior taste. You should focus your adverts more towards your actual audience unless you want to completely redesign your game to reflect the adverts you are producing..Version: 2.8.0

Super fun, you can play freeI’ve been playing this game for around 2+ years fairly regularly and am up past level 4500. Some levels are obviously harder than others but the more you practice, the more you learn techniques to pass these tricky levels, although sometimes it’s just luck. I like the extra challenges where you can win lots of bonus prizes because I have NEVER spent a dollar on this game and never will because I want to pass the levels myself. I think that’s a rabbit hole one can easily fall into and before you know it you’re buying your way through the game. Yes it’s addictive but you can stop whenever you like for a week or two and pick up where you left off. I like that the further you get into the game the challenges don’t cost more, initially I was concerned I’d end up needing 5+ stars to finish one challenge- it’s pretty consistent and the story keeps moving pretty quickly..Version: 4.8.3

Love it.I have so many issues with this game, all have been listed in other reviews: too expensive for +5 moves, making power up’s and not being given them during game play, not enough coins rewarded for completing levels, free game play wasted (should have a pause function), being stuck on one level for days on end & numerous stars needed for insignificant tasks. However, I love this game & can’t stop playing it; haven’t since I first downloaded it a couple of years ago... I’m almost on level 3000 - house completed, now onto the surrounding areas. I save up stars and spend them when I know I have enough to complete a full day (around 60-70 stars usually) and I never let them drop below 50, as it became sooo frustrating to need one/two stars to complete a day/task, at the same time as being stuck on a level for weeks & not able to complete anything! I never spend money on this game but I play strategically and this works for me but I’ve been playing long enough to know how to plan the board to my advantage. My friend downloaded the game, he doesn’t play as often as I do, maybe once every couple of months and the last time he signed in he completed over 100 levels on the trot, had an hour free on all 3 power up’s at the start of each level, finishing each level in just a few moves and he ended up with 28 hours free game play. So I guess the key to easy and non challenging game play, is to not play very regularly 🤷‍♀️.Version: 3.4.0

Edited reviewDon’t like this update preferred it before oh well I’m going to carry on playing cause it’s the only game I like Edit: So I don’t quite remember what the update actually was but I stopped playing this game for ages because one level I was on (I think it was either 128 or 129) I was stuck on for ages and when I returned I was greeted with three hours of unlimited lives and several power ups. However the lives were wasted as I played two rounds and had to go out. I hadn’t deleted the game from my phone but the game seemed pleased I’d returned and wished to keep me playing. I completed the level in one go and then five more easy enough. Now I’m struggling again on level 134 and all I need the star for is to open a parcel. It’s really annoying as what I want to do is finish my kitchen but hey ho. I don’t think these should be part of what you spend your stars on. However, after reading the other reviews saying you are practically required to buy items to help I have not had to do this. All that’s required is patience and logic. As a tip maybe think ahead of each move. So before you make a move, think. Will this create any further opportunities or will it remove an opportunity? I will be changing my review from 3 to 4 stars.Version: 1.2.0

Becomes monotonous !A good game but the rewards are too sparse. Some levels take forever to complete and you end up spending money to get extra moves out of frustration. That is the whole point I suppose, raise revenue, but eventually the game becomes boring and monotonous. The rewards of free lives for a set time always seem to come at a time that is inconvenient and I haven’t got an hour spare to sit and play. It is a shame that you cannot reach the point of having free lives for an 30 minutes and some how ‘bank’ it for when the hardest levels come up. A smart little game though, but trivial tasks in return for stars make it silly at times. I hate having to work through levels just to change gates/benches/tiles etc to fit in with seasonal holidays. Really ? Already earned those stars and paid for the improvements, now having to earn the stars all over again to end up with Christmas/Halloween/Easter decorations all on the same screen ! I no longer play this game as much, it has become predictable and repetitious. Don’t spend real money, just find a better game that truly is free..Version: 2.6.0

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!.Version: 1.0.0

Great game that keeps on givingI’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..Version: 2.4.0

Don’t waste your money1) I initially enjoyed this game but having reached level 590+, I’ve had enough! It’s cost me a small fortune to get so far and now the games are very similar and so boring. There are FAR too many hard and super hard levels which, again, cost a fortune to get through. I’m done ! 2) I did actually leave the game for a while but came back to it during Covid-19 lockdown. My first review stands. As you get further along in the game it becomes more & more expensive and costs never less than 2 lives for anything and often 3x3 lives. Some of the levels are so hard and take so long to get through (unless, of course, you keep spending on them) that they get VERY boring. This time I’m DEFINITELY through. 3) The game now seems to have developed a lot of glitches. several times I have not received purchases or they disappear. And the customer support is simply awful. You get a request for a screen shot and then ……nothing, sometimes for days..Version: 5.0.3

My favourite game!!!To everyone who says they have to spend money on this game in order to succeed, or that it's too hard, or down to luck - I'm on level 2461 and I haven't spent any money to do it. Some levels seem hard but if you have patience and keep at it, you will beat it. The game hands out plenty of free power-ups on a regular basis and if you find a group with other regular players, you can chat to them and get loads of free lives from them. There are also weekly events that you can take part in that also hand out free power-ups and allow you to compete with others. Other than that, it's a fun, match-3 game that can be very satisfying and addictive. I enjoy choosing the items to go inside Austin's house and learning the little storylines behind each renovation project. There's very little of this game I don't enjoy, and I can play it as much or as little as I like. Of all the games I've downloaded and played, this is the one that has held my interest over the long term. It's not exactly the most profound or complex game, but for me it has been the most consistently enjoyable and rewarding..Version: 3.2.0

Less frustratingWould be less frustrating if the planes would hit appropriate targets rather than ones not doing anything. Obviously it’s possible to pass some levels without having to buy tokens. Spent a week trying to get past a level. Obviously for some levels it is almost impossible to get through without purchasing retries and weapons etc. You even get the privilege of getting reminded to buy special tools etc. some levels are relatively passable after many attempts with various strategies but disappointing some you virtually have to pay for or it drives you nuts after a week. I guess it’s user pays to varying degrees. Or maybe I need a photographic memory for previous strategies lol.Version: 3.5.0

Long time player.....I love this game, have been playing it for quite some time. It’s my “go to” favorite. I’m somewhere around level 1100 or close to it. Some levels are hard to the point that it gets ridiculous. Some of the hard levels are easy or perhaps it’s just luck to win them. I have spent days on a level and get frustrated and then dont play for a while...but i still really enjoy this game. You CAN win every level with out a power up. You DO NOT need to spend any money on this game, patience is a virtue (so they say). I have spent money and lately I haven’t. The one thing i do agree with most reviewers on is this... to buy a power up costs wayyy too much money for the amount of coins you receive for passing a level. To continue a game (at 900 coins) for a move or two costs a fortune considering you really don’t win much. To buy three hammers costs too much (1900 coins). I realize they do want you to spend money and i have but even when you spend, it doesn’t give you much in return. I mostly just wanted to let people know you don’t have to spend money to win this game...and yes, some of the tasks are eye rolling but....its still a fun game. Even if you don’t feel like playing, you can still receive a daily reward for logging on..Version: 2.9.3

Great game!!This is a great game to sit back & relax with. I read a review you can’t get past stages without money which is untrue,I’ve been playing for a year and a half and I’ve never needed to pay (though I have bought items to treat myself to boosts during a competition) Perseverance is key. 1 Star per level may not seem great when you start off but eventually you get there when you have a couple hundred stars you sitting there for when you’ve run out of lives then you can start working on your house. Great game. Recommended to family to help me build a clan!! Come join Taz rebellions!.Version: 3.5.7

Great game, but gets hard so fast!!!I downloaded homescapes today, and I'm obsessed!!! This is a great game, (just like gardenscapes) but the levels get hard way too quickly! I've been waiting and waiting for over three hours now for my lives to refill, and I haven't completed the same level yet! From reading the other comments, I think it's a good idea to have a video you can watch to get a life back, or make the waiting time shorter. I think five minutes is long enough. No hate, it's an amazing addictive game, but please make an update on the live timing. Also, I think you shouldn't need to do a level to make a new day. Thanks!.Version: 1.0.0

Amazing graphic, a bit difficultI saw the game in an ad and I thought I discovered one of the best games for phones... love the graphics , love the characters, love the idea! However levels got difficult really fast; initially I thought maybe it’s me, but after reading the reviews I realised it’s not. The upsetting part is that I bought a package with coins ( £4.99 ) that I managed to spend in 10 minutes :( I bought some lives and some boosters but never got them... As others have mentioned after working so hard to get one star, it should be used for the house and not for other silly things like opening the door !!! can you please think of a way for us to make coins quicker or even lowering the difficulty of the levels a bit ; you could give a daily gift or the option of replaying previous levels to get coins without losing lives , or maybe a daily spin gift ( coins or stars or lives or to use against a task) i would play the game continuously if it wasn’t for the lives thing. Wouldn’t you prefer that ? And who wants boosters and stuff can still invest money... I’m sure you will listen to your players requests!.Version: 1.0.0

Honestly..The game itself is quite addictive, I love the idea of building it up to unlock rooms and renovate the property bit by bit. However I don’t feel like the level difficulties and rewards of have been thought through properly. Yes, it is possible to not make any in app purchases to complete levels. However if you enjoy being stuck on a level for days on end, relentlessly trying to beat it over and over to get 1 poxy star - go for it. I think it’s ridiculous that some of the to-do’s require 4-6 stars to complete and to even gain that many stars, it can take you quite a while to do so competing levels. The levels get WAY too difficult too early on in this game; with you needing to waste boosters which, to me, shouldn’t need to be used until further into the game. I also think the amount of coins you get as a ‘reward’ for completing a level are a bit pathetic. Some of the ‘hard’ levels you only get about 100 coins/1 star for, yet you can be stuck on that one level for days. I would happily rate this 5 stars if the above could be rectified in some way as it’s a nice little game to pass the time and weirdly, feels like you’ve accomplished a little something when a room is completed and you unlock the next one 👍🏼.Version: 1.9.0

Could do so much more with..The game on it own is quite good, the newest updates were really needed to make the game more enjoyable though I find that having to spend real money for the coins and power ups are really disappointing. It would be a great idea if the game developers could invent a way to provide either heart shaped lives or power ups as options, that would make the game more fun. Though I don’t see the point of having to win the first stage of the event of free 30 mins or 1-2 hours of free lives, when we have the option to request more lives through the group chat. Hence the 4 starts..Version: 2.6.0

Challenge your mindThis is the first game that I ever played that a year later I can still play and move up levels. Every game you play gets harder as you move thru the levels so of cos Homescapes is the same. I have been stuck on some levels for weeks but sooner or later I get it. It challenges your mind the way a game should. After a year I am up to 517 and still enjoy the game. The only gripe I have is I get unlimited lives at a time when I normally can’t use them. Well done homescapes.Version: 4.3.5

If you like a challenge...Downloaded after seeing it in an advert whilst playing another game. The graphics are really nice and the game looks good. Lots of people complaining about it being too difficult too early which is kinda true but what's the point in playing it if it isn't a bit of a challenge??? You don't have to spend money if you don't want to, I'm on level 78 and haven't spent anything. It costs a minimum of 900 coins to do anything and you earn a minimum of 50 coins per game. So 18 levels to earn enough coins to buy something seems pretty far fetched. However, you can watch adverts to get free coins (usually only between 30 and 50 per advert) which is fine when you've got nothing better to do. Some people have complained about the lack of lives but that to me is a good thing, again it makes the game harder and it's more satisfying when you do win a level. I'm not sure if it's deliberate or just purely coincidental but when I'm stuck on a level it seems after a few failed attempts the game just makes life really easy. It seems it arranges the items such that power ups can be made in abundance and I can then complete the level with ease. Maybe it's just pure luck?? It's a good game but maybe not for someone who wants to sit down and play endlessly for hours on end..Version: 1.0.0

Addictive but it gets hardI really like this game. It’s fun to play just like Gardenscapes but the levels are quite hard. It’s frustrating that you spend ages trying to complete a level. I want to have a maximum of more than five lives because it’s frustrating that you are trying to complete a level and then you don’t have enough lives. Apart from that I love this game and I like Austin too. I would suggest you have easier levels. They are doable but it is frustrating that it takes so long. Good game though. :).Version: 1.4.0

GreatI really like this game and how you complete games to upgrade the house but the wait for lives is way to long and some levels are way to hard for me, also getting money is really slow so when I spend 900 on 5 extra moves but still fail the level it’s a real pain but even if I do complete it after that I gain less than 100 coins which is a bit unfair but a really easy way out of this would be to make a mode where you have infinite money and stars so that you can refurbish the house freely without having to go through the pain of having to play the same level over and over again, this way you could let our inspiration run wild other than go dry because of painstakingly hard levels. I care more about the story line of the characters so this way I’ll be able to remember more of it and not just say “ but why is this happenin?” “Who is that?” You could still have the option to do levels if we wanted and have infinite lives and boosters to still challenge our selves every now and then. This kind of defeats the point of the game but I believe that more of the point is to refurbish and listen to the story line..Version: 2.2.2

Interesting Game... Can Be ImprovedI 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..Version: 1.4.0

Too many starsI 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..Version: 3.0.0

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 -.Version: 2.1.0

Great fun but has its momentsIt’s a great game at heart, I love a story and that you work toward something, but everything takes three stars sometimes six and could take you weeks to get those! The mini games are a great addition and you can get through a few levels. I think some things shouldn’t cost so many stars like a call to someone should be 1 and to start a new day, he’s tired man and wants to go to bed let him! 😂 a few niggles but throughly enjoy it all the same. thanks for making it!.Version: 1.5.0

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 😊.Version: 2.2.2

Star StarvingI find it’s very annoying when such small parts of the story use up so many stars. It takes so long just to get one star and then you carry on through the story and something like opening a parcel takes four stars! And then rather than the parcel opening and assembling itself, it takes another four or five stars to assemble it! I just wish actions were limited to 1-2 stars. I understand it helps the storyline carry on longer but it also puts people off playing..Version: 2.6.0

Great gameAwesome! Although levels get hard it still challenges you! My team is so kind and i am so glad they have teams as i can be in a team with my sis. One thing that could change is getting stars easier so like when there is a new day you get might get 2 stars or something like that! Anyways, this game is one of the best games ever. Thank you for reading.Version: 3.5.0

It’s good but requires too many stars for such little thingsI 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!.Version: 1.7.0

Love the gameI love this game , I am on level 279, don’t want to quit now as I’ve been playing for quite some time . Finally finished the kitchen. I’m with everyone else thou , I don’t mind the harder levels but I wish you made boosters easier to get. I’ve been stuck on 1 level over a week a few times and I’ve been so close to delete the game as I was close to throwing my phone at a wall! Some levels are just completely insanely hard .. and seems to be more harder levels than normal levels, Love the game , just wish I could do more than a few appliances or a something per week!.Version: 1.6.0

Good, but needs more controlHighly 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).Version: 2.5.1

Good but never endingThis game takes the good things about Candy crush, and Hay day, and makes them into a live action renovation game! The only thing I don’t like is that it does get quite hard fairly quickly, so unless you’re willing to pay you can only achieve by putting lots of time in. Also, it does take a long time to renovate all the rooms., and it goes into the garden as well. To the developers: too many clicks required. Why do we have to tap the screen so much after ending a level?.Version: 2.3.0

HomescapesSo disappointing to find out I get charged nearly $16 for something I have not why am I getting charged all the time and when I do buy coins for a certain amount I don’t get all the coins I pay for and I pay more. Levels are so hard to get through and to pass the levels you have t spend more money of your own just to buy coins this is so disappointing so I going to delete this game.Version: 1.6.0

Maybe add voice to stories?Hey so I love this game and have been playing for a while (level 4,939) but I have to admit I’ve stopped reading the dialog. I skim through but have no idea what’s going on or what the purpose is of the room I’m redoing. (Usually I’m unwinding after the day and watching tv at the same time and am just too tired or confused about the plot to read.) I really just like playing match game and getting seasonal decor for the front lawn. It would be awesome if you guys added a text-to-voice feature. It could be as basic as a Siri robot voice or as elaborate as voice actors. Either way, I’d love to have it just read out the text so I can know what’s going on without having to read 20 speech bubbles. Also, these rooms are getting kind of absurd too. I think the lake house is bigger than the main/original mansion. Like they have this whole aquatic research lab, a massive, completely vacant bakery (can we get some fake patrons in here??), an art studio/writing study, and now I don’t even know what the current room is with the stained glass. Why don’t we design the other characters’ homes instead of building this nonsensical overly-extravagant monstrosity? We could do Lao’s house, Raúl’s, etc. I haven’t unlocked the mountain estate but I bet it’s the same..Version: 5.0.4

Great game but needs tweaking 🤔I really enjoy this game but I find that the one star reward is utterly ridiculous, so much so that I am likely to delete it🙃 The idea of being able to “do up rooms & have different adventures” is great but to be stuck on one level for days & then finally get one star ( and then you need two stars to start a new day and 3*3 stars to finish one of the next challenges 🤯) is taking the joy out of the game. (I’ve had this game on both my iPad & my mobile for about 3 weeks. ) With regards to weekly team challenge- the first week we did ok, were placed in teams that, even if we weren’t at the top, they were still within reach. Week 2 the 3 first teams had 1000’s of points before we even started😳 Hardly encouraging to continue 🥺 Please sort these tweaks out, I know that you want people to spend money ( which I did in the beginning, but when it becomes clear that those who do all the time will be the only ones with a chance to move forward, then I feel less keen to do so) All the best A.D..Version: 4.3.5

Great game but has a few flawsFirst 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 !.Version: 3.5.7

Played for years, still play everyday. Love it!This game is still great fun. And yes it does get super hard at times (usually on the super hard levels ha-ha. However if you join a team you can play up to 20 games in a row and more if you win. The game gives you loads of free stuff like extra lives, infinite time etc. Any levels you get stuck on will eventually pass as they game seems to make you pass around the 20-30th attempt. They also have discounts on coins often if yon don’t have the patience to wait. I’m on level 2500+ and I haven’t spent a cent. I watch a few ads everyday only if I want (which I do free coins s!) and they don’t force them on you. I’ll keep playing as long as they have new levels, well done Devs 10/10..Version: 3.4.0

HomescapesI tried the Gardenscapes and got more than a little frustrated, this game started to capture me, the graphics and Austin are intriguing. However, the hard levels are too frustrating. I'm going to keep going a short time but think I will be exiting soon unless the levels are easier to get through, which makes purchases more attractive. Trouble is, there are just as attractive games out there that don't provide the frustrations. Pity, because I quite like Austin!.Version: 1.5.0

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????.Version: 3.1.0

HiI really like this game but like I’ve seen a lot a people say this game has a lot of very hard levels that gives you like 10 lives which is nothing to try and complete levels where you have to collect like 40 Cherry’s while there’s double chains blocking a lot of pieces and it’s very frustrating sometimes when I spend several days trying to complete a level that gives me a bad amount of lives and unlike some other designing games I’ve played another thing is that it’s not like you could watch a couple of adds and skip a hard level but in this game I just have to wait to get lives because the limit is only five lives and I’ve wanted to delete this many times out of frustration but I don’t because I’m just hoping that there will be an update that makes the limit for life’s higher and maybe adds would help people who also are frustrated about hard levels because whenever I’m on a hard level it’s like the game wants us to pay for lives or coins. The last issue I have is also that you have to pay 900 coins to continue a level I think it should. be lowered to around 400 because a lot of times on the hard levels I use up all my coins completing the level. Overall if these issues get fixed it would be a five star but until then it’s a four and it’s a pretty fun game.Version: 5.1.4

Great but needs accurate adsI downloaded this game after seeing an ad for it and was extremely disappointed to find it was a completely different game to what the ad showed...false advertising is not a good look. But I do thoroughly enjoy playing this game and the people who say you HAVE to buy power ups to win obviously have no patience because I’m on level 1203 and have NEVER spent any money whatsoever on this game. It’s not a cash grab it just has some challenging levels that take time to master.Version: 2.8.0

Takes too long to renovateLoved this game and I was hooked earlier on. However, now I’m on level 160 and every tiny renovation requires I pass 2 or 3 levels. Which obviously now are really hard. I’m still only on the third room, the kitchen, and it’s boring now as it takes forever to see any changes. Eg 2 levels to get some kitchen appliances which barely make any difference to the room. Or 9 levels to fix the windows. Preferred it when it was one level per renovation/change..Version: 1.2.0

Love! But needs some adjustments!I absolutely love this game! It’s fun, challenging, amazing story lines, and cool ideas for decorating! I have been reading through the reviews and see a common complaint.... some levels are way too hard to earn so very little. I have stopped playing this and garden scapes out of frustration from time to time...yet I always go back! I spent 4 or 5 days on the same level on Homescapes and well over a week now on Gardenscapes level and it’s very discouraging. I have heard of people getting charged for additional things they don’t even purchase in games before..so I avoid making purchases at all costs.(***not in this specific game**) So it’s extremely discouraging when I spend so much time and get no where. That’s legit my only complaint. It’s not bad enough where I want to delete the games-because if you keep at it, EVENTUALLY you will beat it! Then it seems the next few levels are super easy then you hit one of the hard ones that takes days to beat. BUT the idea of the game, I think, is Genius! I DO love the little challenges and add on competitions you incorporate into the games, like the rockstar thing with Austin and all that! I wish we had more options for boosters, although I will say from time to time you add in the spin wheel u get to spin daily for boosters ! Overall it’s a great game - just challenging from time to time! Great to play during quarantine and needing an escape from reality for a little🤷‍♀️.Version: 4.4.4

Love itLove this game but we should get $$ easier, it gets a little hard sometimes... just wish you could get extra cash.Version: 1.0.0

It could be betterThe games start of easy and fun, but before long, so hard you can spend a week just trying to win a game for one star, OK if you want to spend big money, but to me that’s not on. Also been finding it might say you need 2 stars, but I’ve found really you need four stars, this is so annoying, a fault in the system, I tried contacting them, but you get no where, don’t know if I’ll continue..Version: 3.5.7

Amazing, but sometimes impossibleDon’t get me wrong, this game is just my style. I love it and I’ve gotten quite far! I thought I’d try it out and see what happens, now it’s got me stuck in. Although, some stages can be WAY too hard, and they get like that very early on- lvl 163 is my challenge right now. I have been on that lvl for just over 3 days… trying to complete it 😐 (still haven’t). All I’m asking for is more EASY lvls! Sorry if I’m being overdramatic or demanding, but that’s my opinion. Also, here’s some feedback, thank you for making a little bit of lvl tutorials. But I’m bummed because they don’t have all of them. Including lvl 163! Other than that, it’s an AWESOME game! I recommend it 👍.Version: 4.9.1

Fun but number of stars you collect to move on needs changedI love this game and Gardenscapes. As you progress through the game the levels get harder (which is expected) but you also need to collect more stars to complete a task and move on. This is the only thing I don't like about the game as I am now on level 100 odd and there is still SOOOOO many rooms left plus the garden, none of which have been touched and I'm starting to think I'll never see what most the rooms could look like. You also sometimes waste stars and moving on time by using stars to complete silly little tasks, for example, I had to collect 2 stars to fix the sink in the kitchen, for it to then not even be fixed but even worse and then I had to collect another two stars to stop the leak. Was much better when you just needed one star to complete a task, especially for ones that require you to do it more than one. The only reason I end up not playing the game for a while as it's so off putting, especially as sometimes I need to do a level multiple times to pass it and collect a star in the first place. Gardenscapes is the same..Version: 2.2.2

ReviewReally nice game. I’ve been playing for years. I have to say that some levels (in the 200 most recent ones) are ridiculously hard… but all in all it is a great game. Only thing I would change is, for the hard levels, make it possible on a first go by logic. I truly believe that some levels are monitored to be hard (impossible to achieve without bonus or cash), and only unlock once you’ve tried them 20+ time. It is supposed to be a free game with in app purchase, so make the levels achievable by logic on a first try and not randomly once you’ve spent a few days on them. Other than that, great work and highly recommend this game!.Version: 4.8.6

Levels and gamesLove the game, but needs some improvements. For starters some of the levels are to tough for the amount of moves you get. So to beat them you have to buy tokens. When a super hard level only gives you 8 moves to clear 16 cherry’s and 15 rings it’s unrealistic to beat in 8 moves. The Knights race is a joke! I was in 2nd place by three levels from third place, 4th place was 4 levels and 5th was 7 levels behind and first was a level ahead. I beat my level in 5 moves with double rainbow cubes. Took me less than a minute, but when it went to the main screen it said “hurry you just got past” and I was 2 levels behind in last place. That means the other so called players behind me beat 5, 6, and 7 levels in less than a minute. I don’t think so. Then the hard level I was two moves from completing and I ran out of moves and I bought tokens. I used a double airplane to win the level and the airplanes never went to the right spots and I couldn’t win, so I used 1200 tokens to get more moves. Again I had no moves to make. I sadly bought more tokens and was able to use the hammer twice to get my win. When it went to the main screen the knights race was over and I was 9 levels behind. What a joke. Please fix! It is a fun game, but at time beyond frustrating..Version: 4.8.6

General ReviewThis is honestly my favourite game, I was an avid player of Gardenscapes and downloaded this as soon as it came out. The levels can be quite hard and I’ve been so tempted to delete the game at some points but I’ve never felt so proud and satisfied when I’ve completed a level. I’m currently on level 169 and I just can’t stop playing! This is one of the few rare games that I haven’t deleted after the first few days and I really love the idea of having an objective as it makes me want to carry on. My only complaint that I would hopefully like to see changed in the future (unless you’ve already done it of course) is that of the infinity hearts. I usually play before college or before I go to sleep so when I’m given an our or two of infinity hearts I can’t use them which defeats the point of the reward. I would absolutely love it if we could apply them at the time we want instead of just starting the timer automatically as soon as you’re rewarded it . I quite like the limit of lives haha otherwise I’d never stop. Overall, fantastic game glad to have downloaded it. Hope to have some feedback! Thank you 😄.Version: 1.3.0

To expensiveI have waited 2years before I started playing again, I was hoping for some changes but I can see there hasn’t been, your still greedy ,it’s a shame because it is a beautiful game but so expensive, I find myself spending between $5 and 24$ every couple of days, every second puzzle can cost up to 5000 gold coins to pass, the cost of the power ups is a joke, over 900gold coins per power up and how the hell is that possible to afford when we win between 50 and 140gold coins, it’s not, so we have to pay real money to move forward, also I go through lives fast and again have to use real money, look I understand that is the point, that’s how u make ur money but come on let me enjoy the house, I want to restore it but I can’t afford to spend over 60$ a week on this, I’m happy with buying the game out right like you do an 80$ PS4 game , or even 20$ a week I don’t mind that , that’s reasonable, as long as I can watch my house grow . but seriously i can’t move forward without buying power ups or lives, it just takes the fun out of it ,I also tried Gardenscapes and the same thing there , sorry but it looks like I’ll have to quit like I did a couple of years back..Version: 3.5.7

MehIt was fun and addictive until you had to pay to win. The levels got ridiculously difficult to beat and the quests start requiring more stars to complete - which are obtained by beating levels. The only way to beat the later levels (I’m on 485) is to pay for extra lives, moves and boosters. I understand it’s a business, but yeah...it’s incredibly frustrating after a while. Art and animation is A+++ tho 👌🏽.Version: 3.8.5

We weren’t born yesterday, fellas.The whole game gets stupidly annoying really. I know it’s my own choice to keep playing it! It is entertaining, I’ll give it that. But seriously, how many flipping stars do you need to do really really basic tasks? I’m on level 590-something, and I realised a long time ago that it was all about how many times you’ve played a level. I suspect there’s just a pre-set number of times required to play a level before ‘oh, look, you’ve done nothing differently but it’s time for you to complete the level!’ and magically, you complete the level. Sadly this gets higher and higher the further you progress in the game. And now I need an increasing number of stars to do really mundane things too. Really? And ‘ooh, look, you’ve nearly finished this bit. Why not spend some cash just this once?’ Yes, it’s a fun game. (But frankly I want to do up the house, not fix the flamin’ car and phone people up). But it’s a load of fixed nonsense really. Shameful. But a fairly peaceful way to pass the time..Version: 2.9.3

Why is there no bathroom?Overall a great and interesting game to play. Fun and challenging. Love: the extra rooms, added updates, extra “decor” you can earn by playing the seasonal games, graphics, some of the storylines, the cat, easy game within the game that earns stars/lives, garden is truly beautiful, no (direct) ads Confused by: no bathroom, the parents have no bedrooms, some colour and design choices Can do better: some storylines esp Katherine who is supposed to be the romantic interest but always looks on the verge of crying, the “ friends” are made to seem inclusive but can come off as tokenism, father is just plain annoying. Game forces you to play constantly by withholding some of the extra rooms. No ads which is a plus but then indirectly pushes you to purchase by not allowing you to proceed. (It is possible to play without purchasing, you just may be stuck on a level until game decides to let you go on, the level will be impossible to win until you’ve failed enough times and suddenly will become super easy) which brings me to next point which is game is neither skill based or luck but seem driven by trying to get you to purchase stuff through it. Some levels are so easy and then impossible until the same level becomes impossibly easy after you’ve either bought some bonus or tried enough times that it gives up on you purchasing. I get it, that’s the point of these things but still..Version: 4.6.2

Addictive but could use some workThis game is addictive as all get out and I love it! However, I think the game would been benefit from having less difficult levels, or decreasing the difficulty in the very hard and hard levels. It’s possible to beat these levels without any power ups and coins, but that’s only if you’ve been dealt a good puzzle. I know a few people that loved the game but stopped playing because of the difficulty of some levels. I have even myself taken long breaks from the game for this reason. Also, sometimes just to call someone, it can take up to 2 or 3 stars just to do this. I believe the game should be a little more rewarding with lives, stars and power ups if just calling someone takes up to three stars(three games). And if this isn’t possible, there should be better rewards for completing levels, helping teammates, and/or just in general (hand out power ups). I think the game would be extremely successful if it were a little easier or if you could change which difficulty you would like to play as. I think the developers are more focused on making the game like the ads we see and less like keeping and improving what is already good about the game. Hopefully some of these issues are dealt with so mine and many other players I know experiences while playing the game are improved. All that said, it’s a great game that gets you sucked in, but just needs a few tweaks here and there..Version: 4.8.6

I really like this game! But a couple of improvements could be usedI really like the idea of this game and the storyline is intriguing. The decor choices are also very pretty. But, I do have some ideas that would make the game better. First of all, I really like the levels where you can help Austin with his favorite game and I would like more of those levels. Second of all, I was just playing Level 24 on the game and you only have 10 MOVES to destroy boxes AND collect 11 lamps and 17 books. I had to spend most of my coins and now I can’t get extra moves. I would appreciate if the developers did one of three things: 1. Don’t make players pay for coins. I’m a kid and my parents don’t let me make in app purchases so I would be pleased if they did this. 2. Give the players extra moves. I’m not able to beat level 24 with only 10 moves but I think if I got more moves I would be able to beat it. 3. Give the players more free boosters. I’m predicting that if we got more boosters, eventually we would be able to beat tricky levels. 4. Give us less obstacles to clear on these difficult levels. I’m sure I would be able to beat the level in 10 moves if we had less obstacles to clear..Version: 4.8.6

Great but too many side tripsThis 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..Version: 3.2.0

Love it...but needs fixingI 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”..Version: 1.7.0

Great gameI’m seeing reviews that say it’s too difficult and you have to spend money. That’s not my experience. I’m on level 2750 and haven’t spent a penny. I find it too easy when I win free boosters for a time and race through every level first go. I’m not saying this to show off. My tips would be to save up your boosters until you really need them. I always have 4 goes without extra lives or using boosters before I use anything to help. That way I save them for if I’m really stuck. Another hint is to really pay attention to what you are supposed to achieve like just because you see cookies doesn’t mean that you have to destroy the cookies. Done waste goes doing something that you don’t need to do to win. Best hint - if it looks like it can’t possibly be done in the number of moves you are given, you need to join a ball with another booster to fill the board with bombs, rockets or planes so focus on that. I like following the story of Austin. It’s kinda sweet and fun to pick furniture. Personally I save up until I have 100 stars and can do a whole day at a time as I find the story easier to follow that way. I’m not really a game player so I’m delighted to have found this game that is challenging enough to be interesting yet has a story suitable for children instead of fighting or violence with decent graphics and best of all, completely free! I’ve not spent a penny so far..Version: 4.8.6

Good GameVery good game. Same concept as Fishdom but a lot harder. I find Fishdom very easy with a few levels here and there that take more than a few goes to pass. I've noticed Fishdom has recently been made easier in the sense that it's now easier to get diamonds. I do think that I would personally enjoy Homescapes more if it was the same level of difficult as Fishdom but that's because I'm easily frustrated. As other reviews state, it's quite challenging and would be boring if it was too easy. I think maybe a feature where you can select the difficulty (easy/medium/hard) would go really well with this game because I've seen a lot of reviewers are happy with the difficulty. I also think considering you win between 50 and 60 coins per level that 900 coins for 5 extra moves is quite over priced no matter what difficulty the game is supposed to be. On Fishdom it costs 9 diamonds to get some extra moves and you get at least 1 diamond every time you feed your fish. So if you have 4 tanks you'll get 4 diamonds. I have 8 tanks so I get 8 diamonds every day, which I would say makes the game a fair bit easier. I would prefer this difficulty level to be implemented with Homescapes. I think the developers should really look at this as difficultly is mentioned in nearly ever review..Version: 1.4.0

Very inefficient and about micro-transactionsThis game has a well thought out story and appears to be very entertaining to play. Everything was functioning seamlessly until I reached a level barely a day into the game and was met with issue after issue with either not enough lives or not having enough coins to extend my amount of moves. I have been on the same level for going on four days and have already spent almost $10 in AppStore micro transactions attempting to just get past this one level and yes like you would’ve guessed all those coins were gone within five minutes of purchasing and I was still stuck on the same level after spending $10. All in all this is one of those games that works more towards advertising, getting the game out there, and setting everything up to bring in the consumers and then has all these dead ends barely a day Into the game that in some way or another require you to watch advertisements for their financial gain and make micro transactions in their game. All in all I would consider this game to be an absolutely awful download or purchase because this developers only goal is to take your money. For all the individuals who have fallen in this selfish developers trap I’m sorry..Version: 3.0.0

Great game but could use some improvementI 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.Version: 1.3.0

My thoughts on HSNow 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 :).Version: 1.1.0

Great!I’ve been reading the reviews, saying that this game is too difficult, and that it’s a money grab, but the truth is, I’ve been playing this game for the better part of 2 years, and now that i’m on level 2300, i still haven’t spent a single cent on this game. The option of buying coins is there, but i feel like i haven’t really needed that. Apart from that, the endearing storyline gets you invested, and it’s fun having the opportunity to customise the house (maybe even moving furniture around in the future would make this game even cooler). You really do get to know the characters, even if the story is a little basic at times!.Version: 2.6.0

I love this gameI’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 🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳.Version: 3.1.0

Could be a lot better.So pleased I read the reviews before wasting my money on a golden ticket which is a very temporary boost. I’m all for supporting developers, but I get fed up with how many stars have to be used for so few things and such a lot of efforts (given you can be stuck on a level for hours or days - result is one star. Some of the renovations are downright ghastly (curtains draped over the stove for a TV show for example) and I’d like the option to ignore. 2 stars to put up a poxy hedge. An option would be good - should Austin do X or Y? So you control the destiny a little more. I’d like to think winning a level is based on skill but often it isn’t. It’s down to if the algorithm wants you to win that time. When choosing a booster you should be able to select when to implement it - and where. You can’t. It’s placed in at the beginning and invariably is activated by another unwanted chain sequence. My advice is to not waste your boosters. I also worked hard last weekend to come 3rd. For that I should have received 5 planes boosters. They didn’t get awarded so that was a complete waste of a Sunday. Come on developers, listen to your gamers. I’d be happy to pay a fiver for a real long term reward but as it is, I’ll stick with the free version..Version: 4.0.0

Great game 👍😁This a really good game but one thing to improve on. When your at the end of the level but you haven't passed, you might have some explosions that you've just made. But you can't use them because you don't have any moves left. So at the end of the level weather you've passed it or not the game should automatically explode the explosions because that's what people usually need. Otherwise it's a great game!!👍😁 Thanks.Version: 4.5.4

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..Version: 1.7.0

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..Version: 2.7.0

Gardenscapes vs HomescapesInitially 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..Version: 1.0.0

FunI like it.Version: 1.0.0

The only game I playI have been playing this game for more than a year and I’m still addicted. It can be frustrating as some levels are very hard to complete (some of the “easy” levels are harder to beat than the “difficult” ones!) but after a day or 2 of multiple attempts the game will let you complete them. The extra mini games are great and a good opportunity to stock up on coins/boosts, plus, in tournaments you’re up against other players and the prizes are worth it if you can get to 1st place. (For example, I just won 2 hours unlimited life and 7 boosts for coming 2nd place, and 3000 coins for coming 2nd in a team tournament!) I must admit that some of the furniture/interior design choices are pretty bad (sometimes I just think they’re all really ugly) but it’s a game at the end of the day - not your own house. I’m currently at level 972 and haven’t ever purchased anything in the game; there’s no need to spend real money if you can play the game well - one of the reasons why I love it! Thanks for creating this game and for updating regularly with new features. I definitely recommend..Version: 3.2.0

Perfect Game!In this game you assist Austin (a butler) renovate a giant mansion for his parents, you do this by passing ‘connect 3’ levels’ and the occasional ‘mini-game’ which will give you a star, you then spend your precious stars on tasks. In you tasks you will often be deciding what furniture you want, you have 3 choices. The graphics are splendid, the sound effects and music are very tranquil and comforting when completing levels. You can tell Playrix have tried very, VERY hard on entertaining their loyal players. I think what people take for granted is that Playrix did so much coding and work just for people to totally ignore it and complain about other stuff like levels that are to difficult which I find are more fun that way. If you are reading this and questioning if you should download this wonderful game, I completely recommend, especially if you like a little bit of challenge and interior design. Thanks Playrix for all your hardwork and I’m sorry that you have been neglected so many times..Version: 5.2.6

HomescapesIts a rewlly good game and the fact that theres reading in it so its like a education game as well and it may be hard to play some levels but its such a wonderful game and whenever you get a new house or apartment it helps u organise some stuff for your house therefore to make beautiful so i just wanna say thank you for make this game it helps people alot and and kids for education for reading and help new words and also Gardenscapes its also a wonderful game and a beautiful backyard it can effect people and make their backyard become beautiful and some also words such as reading for the kids as an education game for them and both games are very entertaining so thank you for both games🥳🕺.Version: 5.0.4

Recommend! But some suggestionsThis game is really amazing. It has nice graphics, story line and NO ADS!!! I had to think before I wrote this and realized that fact. The match 3 stuff itself can get really hard though. In the match 3 there are regular levels and then there are the purple hard levels and the red super hard levels. I think there should be something when you have attempted a level a lot of times there is a way the game gives you a certain amount of skips or something like that. Especially since the whole moving forward in the game relies on the completion of levels. Maybe this could become something you buy with real money? I’m not saying I would buy it because my mom never lets me buy stuff for games, but other people would. I have noticed this thing that the game does, especially when there are events. They give unlimited lives again and again for rewards but the problem is that this plays automatically and forces you to keep playing the game until the time runs out. I think that many people including me would appreciate it if there was this sort of bank of something that keeps the rewards that have a certain time limit, so you can use them when you want. Thanks for reading my review and suggestions. I’m just a kid but these suggestions apply to everyone so pls take into consideration.☺️😁-meeee.Version: 4.6.2

Awesome game! But...I love this game. It’s so relaxing and entertaining. It’s nice to have challenging levels. However, once you get further into the game, you can’t play as much because you start to go through lives like a hot knife through butter, which is why I can only give this app four stars. The stars in the game feel less and less possible to gain because each one takes over a day to gain sometimes. The challenge is fun, but perhaps there should be different difficulty levels for people who are interested in different aspects of the game? Not just an “easy mode” in which some levels are a bit easier, but a normal and hard mode as well. Or perhaps an occasional “watch ad to get one more move but if you want five more moves you have to pay” because it is very aggravating to feel as if you either have to have a ton of power ups or be able to purchase the five extra moves every time. Especially when, out of those five extra moves, you only needed to use one of the moves. I enjoyed the game a lot, but I want to be able to play without feeling like purchasing coins is a requirement to move forward. Overall, a good game- I love the aesthetic of the furniture, the plot is interesting and somewhat realistic, and Captain Flint is a very nice touch to the game. Just a few things that could be edited to make it more playable..Version: 4.5.4

Great gameVery great and fun game following the story of fixing up the old family house. I particularly enjoy the story line, graphics, interactive aspect, design options, and ease of playing. Never had any issues with crashing or bugs. If playing though, I would highly recommend building up a substantial amount of stars before completing the daily activities, as this way if you run into a difficult level, with a big amount of stars you’ll be able to finish your day which gives you another set of 5 lives to keep playing. Fun game so long as you know how to play smart 👍🏽.Version: 2.5.1

Loyalty breeds spendingI’m all for supporting developers and I realize the time and expense that goes into creating a game. But when it’s seemingly impossible to get past levels for days at a time without purchasing power ups, it starts to feel like I’m spending way too much money. First, it’s way too hard to get past many of these levels given the power ups that you are able to create, and the game is not intuitive as many others are, to afford you “spontaneous” gifts that get you through a level. Second, given the time, effort, and often money it takes to get a point it is really “expensive“ to get any of the projects done. If you’re a player that is enjoying the game because of the creative side, then it’s almost pointless because you’ll never get the point and the frustration isn’t worth it. Third, the most successful games I believe are the ones that let you play the most and when you’re up against truly challenging level you’re willing to fork over the bucks To get past it. These are the games that I felt as if the developers showed me a good time and deserve the money I’m spending in power ups. Unfortunately this is not one of those games. I feel as if you’re just making it so hard That it’s not fun..Version: 1.1.0

Good game!This game offers excellent entertainment for free. While there are options to purchase boosts to make the levels easier, they aren’t at all necessary. A little bit of strategy, and judicious use of the free boosters given out daily is enough. The house storyline is satisfying and fun, and very well executed. I have been playing for over a year, and though there are probably more productive things that I should be doing with my time, this is a very engaging and fun pastime, and I will probably still be playing for a long time to come. Highly recommended..Version: 3.1.0

Fun but frustratingSo I been playing for almost a year now and I’m on the 1000+ levels. It’s fun but it totally clickbait me on Instagram with the little games that I haven’t seen once after downloading. I’ve gotten so frustrated so many times I had to stop playing for a couple of days because the levels get so hard you need god to help you and not boosters. Sometimes the normal levels are harder than the hard ones. Not only that but you start by collecting 1 star per game to having to pass multiple levels for one task, which can take 3 stars per task when it used to be 1 Star per task. And I hate when you’re remodeling a room and at of nowhere something happens in another room you have to fix. Like, everything is supposed to be new, why are they making me waste my stars on a room I had already finished ? And 5 lives isn’t enough! Either give me more lives or make them take less than 30 minutes each to reload. Oh and lastly if you’re getting a gift for infinite time let us choose when we can use it. I shouldn’t have to waste it because I had work or class. Sometimes you can’t play for 2 hours at that very second. Your girl has a life too you know..Version: 3.6.0

Good game, fun to watch as well as play.I downloaded this on a recommendation from a friend. It’s fun to play, challenging at times, and has some great differentiators (the side quests, the development of the house) which I think set it apart from the usual candy crush like games. Some negatives: 1 - I typically access Facebook by an app. When I started playing this game, I’d given up FB for lent, so the app wasn’t on my phone. I was pretty disturbed, when I re-added the app last weekend, that it was clear from changes (the appearance of photos in the challenges, etc) that the game had attempted to mine my data, even though I hadn’t linked it to FB at all. Not nice. 2 - I think the game is planning to take the main male character down a romantic route with a female minor character. There isn’t an option to have your main character be anything other than male and (apparently) straight - bit of a shame they couldn’t offer a little more diversity, or else just leave the characters as friends..Version: 1.5.1

Not good helpI am stuck on level 40 and have been for 4 ish days. I messaged help and the robot gave me things that didn’t help, and when I ask to speak to some actual person, no body has replied!! It’s been 2 days since I asked and nothing has come through. Can anybody relate or help me please? But I do find the game great, just tone down some of the levels ok? Also the money amount that you earn is absolutely RIDICULOUS compared to how much you spend to continue. 50 coins earned against 900 coins to continue? You obviously are trying to scam us for our money, and I don’t get why you can take a amazing storyline, gameplay and graphics level and turn it upside down because of COINS. Please fix this!!!! (PS I do really like the game, but the problems stated NEED fixing IMMEDIATELY!.Version: 2.8.0

A really fun gamePeople will love this game it’s so interesting when you start this always really really really really really interesting and when you start to the top and really fun to play it was a big sister or a brother or anything or just yourself or just yourself you can play it by yourself or ask your mum or dad or a big sister or brother or your whole family to try it out because you don’t know if they like it thanks for listening to our review let’s have fun watching this we hope you like to look at it bye.Version: 4.1.0

???Why is the game not the game you show?...pick and item (correct or fail)? Where is that game?.Version: 3.1.0

2 ConsI have had this game for 3 years now and I am enjoying it very much. But there is two problems My first problem is that you beat levels to get stars right? Well in the beginning you only need 1 star to do a task. Well as you get up higher you need more stars per task. So if I want to let’s say, put up a statue it would take 3 stars to do so; that means beat 3 levels. And that is something that I am not a fan of. There is one other con. In Homescapes, there is ALWAYS some sort of event going on, like the things where you get points per level, and rewards once you reach a certain point. Sound fun, right? Well once in a while it is fun, but when there is constantly a 30-day long event, and you just can’t get a break, it gets annoying. If you are reading this, and you work on the Homescapes team, please make a change because I hate this and it is something that bugs me so much and I would love it if there was just 1 month where there was no event going on. That is why I stopped playing Matchingtown Mansion, and it might be why I delete Homescapes in the future. But other than that is is a super fun game, there are limited bugs and I enjoy the mini-games (separate from the events) I play it every day!.Version: 4.7.2

ImprovementHomescapes 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..Version: 1.4.0

Great game! But I want to say… (devs please read this)(P.S this is a bit long 😅)I love this game! But first off I want to say why I gave this game 4 stars instead of 5. my first problem with the game is the ads for this game, the ads for this game is the whole reason I downloaded it. I’m not gonna say the ads are lying because they do come every 20 levels (I think) but anyway back to the ads when people watch an add for an game that’s what they wanna play, they don’t want to play something else they didn’t know about and only play what they downloaded it for barely at all! Another thing about this is about the events in this game… see I have absolutely no problems with the actual events but most of the events have like only 2 OR 1 DAY TO FINISH IT!!!! To me that is un fair some of them have an decent time limit like 20 days but the others are WAY TO SHORT… kids also have school u know, and even if they didn’t it’s not like they could spend there whole day trying to finish an event because it’s leaving in an few hours! The last problem I have is the lives… YOU ONLY GET 5 LIVES, THEN HOW WOULD YOU COMPLETE THE REALLY HARD LEVELS… because when you get to the hard levels in the first place you probably don’t even have all five lives! And this complaint is only for when you don’t have unlimited lives. That’s all I can do for now because I don’t have anymore room. I hope this is helpful to new users and devs I hope that you can fix these things!.Version: 4.7.2

Love this game but…I read some reviews and I have the same complaint as many others… I understand that the game needs to get harder as you go, but I lose interest when it takes days (literally) to beat a level. I’m going to call the rainbow ball, bombs, paper airplanes, etc. “cheats” here. Even if I use all of my cheats AND use coins to play on, it’s unbeatable. Most of the time it is pure luck that you beat these levels. Just when you are ready to pack it in and quit, you get lucky. Also, there are levels that start out with only a few pieces on the board, so using cheats doesn’t even help. There has to be a way to make this game challenging without forcing players to quit playing. I have lost many teammates, who quit, because they are stuck and frustrated. My team is down from 28 players to 8 now. Team “America” is looking for players! I hope something changes to keep us all interested. Maybe a new start after a certain level? An end to the game without losing your decorations and cheats, then onto a sequel? A new cheat that clears the board, or something to skip a level? Give us more moves for the harder levels? The game plays the level for you after adding a new booster? There has to be something. I don’t know, but something needs to change. Eventually no one will continue to play, when they get stuck and can’t move on. Why create a game that forces players to quit? Just my point of view. Thank you for reading!.Version: 5.1.4

DeletingWell, I’ve given it a good go. On lvl 263. But it’s been a struggle. The levels are so difficult (even the normal ones, never mind hard and super hard!) The only thing that’s kept me in the game this long is the progression of the house. And even that’s minimal at lvl 263! I’ve only done the entrance area, his bedroom, the kitchen and a part of the garden. I can sometimes spend days doing an easy level. So, weighing up the pros and cons, and all the frustration. I’ve decided it isn’t worth it. The only way you can get ahead in this game is by spending money (which I’m sure is the point) When all I want is a little distraction and relaxation and fun for a small portion of my day. You’ll also notice when playing the game, that if a level is too difficult and you spend days on it with no end in sight, then abandon it for a few days out of pure frustration, you will all of a sudden find you have all the luck in the world on your return. How convenient. Especially when the 50+ times you’ve played it before didn’t yield the same results. It’s almost as if the game is predicting your abandonment and future deletion. ?? Anyway, if it wasn’t for the difficulty levels, and the obvious money making tactics. I would really like the game, even with the long winded progression of the house. Shame really..Version: 2.7.0

Has PotentialHomescapes is sort of a game I just stumbled on but as I got to know the storyline better, I became more interested. I’ve been playing this game for about one or two years, and at first I kind of didn’t seem much enthusiastic about the game, and it’s only because the way you get stars by matching objects and such didn’t seem like much fun, then, they added a new update where you could play mini games, and then, ( in my opinion) the game had more purpose to it, more to do. First off, to me, I didn’t exactly like how you had extra to do in levels like, for example, bring the doughnuts down, collect cherries, break chains, and match items to get carpet. Matching (once again, to me) isn’t very much fun especially when you have to do extras, and have a specific amount of moves to do it. Second, simple things such as collecting stars to “start a new day” isn’t worth going through a level, and having the risk of losing a life just to “start a new day”. Finally, the furniture needs to have a wider variety of colors, textures, types, etc. added to them. Overall, the game has potential and I really do enjoy it but I just feel, ( in my opinion) the game is getting more attention, more downloads, and getting older, it needs to have more options and explanations, (especially to new players) but if you want a simple, free, relaxing game I would definitely suggest it. Thank you for time! Sincerely, FeedUpWithBugs..Version: 4.6.2
