  • Few bugs but another smashing winner!!! Jan 24, 2021

    By Jane Rien
    I have played all Gamehouse’s time mgt games and they just keep getting better! There are two bugs in the game in levels 32 and 34 where it’s not possible to get the trophy/third star due to the character not showing up but even with these bugs, it’s a great bingeable game. Story line was surprisingly extensive and interesting, but it was clear there were “English as a second language” issues...so there needs to be better localization. I really hope Gamehouse creates a sequel. It would be great to see more ethnic diversity in the characters, and continuation of the storylines like Emily and Barbarous. It feels like you guys create all of these great plots then just leave us hanging!!! Thank you for the great games!!!

  • Disappointed! Jan 30, 2021

    By Sphinxyvic
    I love Gamehouse products, I’ve played almost all of them, some of them multiple times. I enjoy the characters and the writing is usually really good. This one Un fortunately is very disappointing on both fronts. Erika is not someone I find myself caring about, and the setting just doesn’t lend itself to this kind of time management play structure. Sadly, the writing needs some serious editing for grammar. I am sad because I waited for this one with excitement, but compared to the Primrose Lake or the Emyr games, it really lacks the charm of either one. Would love another one like the Golden Mask, or even Mortimer. Maybe we can get a new Delicious saga with Emily and the Fam? Anyway, I’m sorry to leave a bad review, but hopefully, you’ll see this and get back to making better games! I love you guys, and now I’ll go download one of my old faves, and feel better.

  • Fun game but a few grammatical errors Jan 27, 2021

    By MMSIP
    I didn’t have the same trouble that others did with bugs and was able to 3 star every level. A few levels actually required a couple of replays to get the 3 starts so there was a little challenge as well. However, there were many grammatical errors in the characters’ dialogues. I normally don’t see those with Gamehouse so I’m sure it was just the rush to get it out and hopefully, they will be corrected later. I think the idea of a magical college is interesting and fun. These are definitely not kids or an HP equivalent. Looking forward to the next chapter that was teased at the end of the game.

    Disappointed to know that I have to pay after the 8th level, wishing there's an option to watch ads to continue the game, otherwise it's a good game with a great storyline. The control is a little bit laggy/slow compared to the previous GH games, but it could be just my feelings.

    Stuck on level 47.. I have tried for a few days now and unfortunately I am ready to give up. Game house games use to not just be fun but entertaining as well for me. Playing this game and not able to get 3 stars is very annoying and it feels like work. Why make it so difficult to get 3stars. Ridiculous.. I reached out and no one has responded to my email. Very disappointed

  • Well... Mar 5, 2021

    By Sarahxoxox
    Woah, I expected a lot more. Although the story gives me vibes of the new Sabrina from Netflix, it’s missing the fluidity and consistency of the previous games. The lag...I can’t play this game at all. You went from creating these wondrous games that grabbed me from an early age of the delicious 1 and throughout the series to heart’s medicine season 1 and I waited years and years for a new one, which grasped me and then ambers airline. The first game to come out with somewhat 3D characters with a fluid storyline and gameplay. I pay monthly for access to your stories and this is just a disappointment and doesn’t even match the original fluidity of the delicious series. I want to play, I want to love the story, but it is so SO jagged and laggy in gameplay that I can’t bring myself to get into it. You all can and HAVE done better. I love you all, but this is just such a disappointment.

    The game is great! I really like it. However, I can't play level 9. I have a membership, and I've completed level 8. Please, fix this fast! I really want to continue the story.

    The game is actually great. But it's a shame that you can only play 8 levels for free. You have to buy the full game to unlock the rest of the game. I thought this was like your other games, where we can play the game for free by watching ads. Even if you want to buy the game, how are you supposed to know that you actually like the game or you think the price is worth it if you're allowed to get a preview for ONLY 8 levels?

    I won't be downloading anymore of these games. I've been playing for years and now all of a sudden I am being bullied into paying for a monthly subscription? No. I don't like deception. Go ahead and charge up front per game. Don't deceive people into thinking they are downloading a free game. You're company is despicable.

  • Loved it! Mar 26, 2021

    By Localvengance
    Thank you GameHouse for another great game. I enjoyed the Harry Potter like vibe and setting. I thought the story line was good. I still as always appreciate the one cost to buy the game and just be able to play it through. I did read another review asking for another Emily story line game and I vote yes on that too please. Would like to see what her next adventure will be. As always Thank you so much for creating fun games to play. You guys rock!

  • Absolutely awesome! Jan 26, 2021

    By Joyflute
    This game is one of the best ever from Gamehouse! The developers knocked it out of the park with this one just like the Tavern one! Gameplay is fun and just challenging enough. Characters and plot are very cute. No issues whatsoever with glitches or levels. You can get three stars on all levels, but you might have to play them a few times or change strategies. This game is just plain fun! Keep ‘em coming!

    Was a good game to play. I like that it let you earn diamonds to finish her room. Although on a few levels no matter what you tried you couldn't get that 3rd diamond.

    I absolutely love this game! Hey, I am having a hard time getting past level 47...I have played it I betcha 15 times or more...the other levels only once or twice...its wierd, and I want to play on! I have a subscription too.

  • difficult levels. Feb 5, 2021

    By hailey cathet
    i am an experienced player and i rarely have issues with levels, but levels 47 and 53 are impossible. i have replayed them several times EACH, and i cannot complete them with three stars and the objective.
  • Feb 4, 2021

    By Heather Martell
    I beat the game but level 47 is impossible to get all 3 stars. I have tried everything and nothing works. I also bought the game and beat it in 2 days. I really liked the game but the price was to high for the quality of the game. Hope all the bugs get worked out eventually.

  • New games anytime soon?? Feb 21, 2021

    By Shae0319
    *I haven’t played this particular game yet, this review is more so a question** Is there possibility of getting new versions of the older games? I really LOVE the Emily games but I can’t find myself caring about the Delicious World or ‘Bed and Breakfast’ versions. I deleted the Bed and Breakfast version because the whole “match three icons to earn money and build up a decrepit house” has been done to death (Gardenscapes anyone?). And Delicious World seems excessive. 120 “levels” an episode... 5 episodes a season.... and there’s 7 seasons so far. You do the math. I like the old formula of just 60 levels and a charming story about Emily or whichever protagonist. Can we maybe get a new Amber’s Airline? Or Sally? Or even Dr. Cares?? Everyone loves Angela too. I know you can do it Gamehouse, I’m rooting for you.

  • Age should be 16 and up. Feb 25, 2021

    By Lola_2011
    This game is tagged as 12+ and yes, I know some 12 years old kids know more than an adult but they are still children, they are not even teens yet and this game deals with heavy issues like recreational smoking and another topic that I won’t share as to prevent spoilers. You don’t have to remove the smoking and whatnot, just up the age recommendation because showing smoking as something cool and having a relationship with your older professor/teacher (big ew, btw power imbalance who?? even if the characters are indeed adults, I assume college aged, and not teenagers as I thought they were) its not cool nor is it appropriate for literal children. Also the game is laggy! So much lag. Lag everywhere, every episode. Lag, lag, lag.

  • Disappointing Mar 27, 2021

    By PGH51
    I have played GameHouse Original Series games since the first Delicious. But I share the disappointment of other reviewers in the story line and characters. That brought my review down to four stars, but what really cost the next star was the inability to upgrade aspects of each scene. I really don’t care what Erika's bedroom looks like, but I would like to have the ability to have her move more quickly, or have coffee-makers (and similar) unable to overflow, or a better *whatever* to increase tips. I’m not even halfway through the game, and already there are scenes I just can’t get that third star on. At least I haven’t encountered a mini-game of “find all the cats” because I hate those!😉

    So far it's ok. Whoever made the game didn't think this through. The levels are too difficult to get three stars. The characters are weird with speech. I pay a subscription but this game is not a good one.

    Siren doesn't show up in level 32 for the task. I tried as they suggested. Replaying it by going through the map. And not taking her first delivery. Neither suggestion work. She never returns after the first delivery.
