    Toxic looking game ad Oct 19, 2021

    By Mary Poppins
    The ad for this game baffles me. What could anyone possible gain from a game which displays life as many know it? What would you gain from other peoples trauma? Why design a game about it? There’s no humour or life lesson or achievement or anything else positive about this game. I wish this toxic ad would stop popping up disturbing my other games.

    So i love this game and i downloaded it again but then it has like ever 5-6 levels there is the one where you do the thing where you have to move the bars and i like that new update but i still have the same problem as when I downloaded it before, when i get on level 24 that level specially o have 10 moves and have to collect 40 yellow and 40 blue?? Like there is 0 ways to do it and I don’t have enough coins to get more moves and i am pretty sure you guys are making it like that so we have to buy stuff but i may be wrong but thats how it seems, but yeah how are you meant to collect 80 blocks when you only have 10 moves???? Im gonna offload the game for now but yeah and i think there should be more options like you can put accessories you get to choose from and idk if its just me but having to play a level just to get a star to do the next day is kinda annoying to me but yeah ima offload the app for know maybe if there is a update and you get more moves for that level that would be awesome but i don’t get it because for this one you have to collect 80 (added together) but you only have 10 moves but in other levels you have to get like 3 donuts and you have likes 20 moves or more (just as a example) so idk why this one has 10 moves and you have to collect 👉🏽80👈🏽 80 is hard to get with only 10 moves. Like i said before amazing game could use some fixing but for now I’m going to offload it.

    Level 69 is just way too hard. You have boxes to break, oranges to collect, and 50 pieces of grass to grow and only 12 moves to make all 3 happen. I think this level for me would be passable if they would just remove the boxes and stop making things too difficult. If they can do that, I would be happy to pass the level and remodel the guy's home. But if they don't remove the boxes, then I quit.

    This 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

    I think I enjoy the game, but when the super hard levels are every third or fourth round, it's extremely frustrating to miss out on game events altogether because you can't pass a level. I wish there was a constant lives counter visible on all screens. Great graphics and visual appeal help keep me interested, but usually, the game concept can be more challenging than fun.

    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!

    Been playing this game for about a year now and have been enjoying it immensely. While, yes, it does have some extremely difficult levels, it is supposed to get harder as you reach more levels. For me, I allow myself a specific amount of entertainment money a month and spend some on this game. They have to pay their programmers too! Keep up the fun!!

  • Addictive but could use some work Oct 8, 2021

    By 5 ⭐STARS⭐
    This 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.
  • Love! But needs some adjustments! Apr 13, 2021

    By emaleighM
    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🤷‍♀️

    I like it but I hate it. Sometimes the levels are impossible to beat. The only way to pass them is due to using all your power ups and a little luck. I don't want it to be super easy but some days I just play it once or twice and give up. It would be nice if the extras (tickets, locusts, what have you) were a little more plentiful, then I might stand a chance of getting the special things done. I think I have only managed to get one saved special area and I have been playing daily for a year. Y
  • Long time player..... Sep 22, 2019

    By Fritog
    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.

    Why does it take six stars to progress in the story? Your hard and super hard levels always seem to be the barrier to needing one more star to advance the story. During your month long events, the deck stacked against the player to the point, if no money is spent, there is no way I would get to level 30 for the grand prize. But to my surprise (not) when events end, the ball busting levels are miraculously are passable.

    Game has stopped working properly. I tried emailing the developer to get the bugs fixed but it's nolonger active. It said to send an email through the settings portion of the game. Which isn't possible since the buttons aren't there. All you get is the background scene of Austin walking around. I even uninstalled and reinstalled twice with no change
  • Game has turned into a joke! Jul 5, 2021

    By Tugg 53
    I’ve been a loyal player for over two years on this game and I’m almost to level 3000. I love this game, it’s probably my absolute favorite HOWEVER…once you get to around 2300 maybe 2400 the levels agent ridiculously hard and they also give you less and less moves to clear the board. The levels that aren’t marked as hard or super hard are indeed super hard and the levels that are marked hard or super hard are just an absolute joke anymore. Unless you have tons of boosters to clear these levels…and even then it sometimes takes several attempts…there’s no possible way to clear the level unless you have the patience of a saint, which I do not. I used to really love to play this game, I looked forward to it every single day, but since they’ve clearly made the levels soo hard to beat, it’s almost impossible. One other thing is that the airplanes NEVER do what they are supposed to do, never. They never go here they should for the player, instead they go where the computer wants them to therefore screwing the player once again. I’m soo very dissatisfied and disappointed with Playrix. Now I’ve gotten to the point to where I may get on once a day or every other day because once I start to play I get soo frustrated and aggravated that I end up having to get back off. Shame on you Playrix. I give the game 2 stars because I still do love the game in itself, I love decorating and watching Austin and the animals move around the house.

    It's deceiving. I downloaded this game because of the mini games in between levels. But now the developers completely removed them mini games and made the game so difficult with lesser moves than the previous versions. Sucks! The hard and super hard levels should reward more stars. For example 2 stars for hard and 3 stars for super hard. But they don't! This gets frustrating. And why is this game needing more and more updates if it's only updated to frustrate us?!?!
  • Love the game but.... Aug 30, 2018

    By Lailac2014
    I am at level 498 and I love the game. But when you have 10 more moves left and you win the level you are lucky to win 58 coins?!?! And you just better break out your dollars because some levels you will be killing yourselves to win. Like 498 level I am not going to spend anymore money on this game. And the few moves it gives you to play and the purple blocks that has the bugs in them good luck they get much harder in higher up levels. This level it has the regular white blocks that grow but the purple ones you have to kit them 2 to 3 times and they grow back just one to two moves after you remove another side. To get extra coins for more lives or boosters it is a lot of money for what little you get. 900 coins you get 3 this. And 1900 coins you get 3 globes. The lives run out so fast and sometimes my friends send me lives I see them and play one game go back to collect the life because it won’t allow you to have 6 life’s and it is missing. I am in the room right at the stairs I forget what it is called. Looks like another living room to me. The outside green house it felt like it took years to finish the plot line. I wish you could request the boosters but place them where you want them if you want them in the game. Like they would be added to your side menu but not dropped down in the puzzle because it places them and there would be a awesome move but the boosters messed it up and you only can use the boosters there is no other move.

    Extremely awful game. Levels are just imposiplble to pass. Ive had 30 minutes of unlimited life. Guess how many levels Ive passed? Zero. Not only I did not pass a single one, Ive also used all of my boosters. I know that the hard levels have to be complicated. But it has nothing to do with yor IQ or brains, just luck (which I am also questioning). If you are considering downloading this app do NOT do it, please

    I was playing this game for a very long time now. It use to be my stress relief but now it becomes the source of my stress. The game is becoming pay to win. The levels are all hard to pass without paying extra. I am already paying for their events which I cannot complete because of the levels being insanely hard. I will have to give up on this soon.

    I don't know why all these one star ratings saying “oh, you have to pay to progress" not true. I'm lvl 5633 and I have purchased some coins maybe once since I started playing 3 years ago. As for you people whining and complaining that levels are too hard, grow up. Every single game, as you progress to higher levels is supposed to be more challenging and get more difficult to beat, sorry y'all are big babies and give up as soon as the game gets too hard for you.

    I think it's hilarious for the people posting this game is hard and you have to spend money to win. Maybe you should work on basic problem solving and strategy skills instead. Sure the occasional super hard level will take some time... But that's the point! It's supposed to be hard. Money is not required to win, it doesn't take days to beat a level, and it's a great brain game when you have a few minutes. Thanks
  • Loyalty breeds spending Oct 28, 2017

    By SAFD67
    I’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.
  • Very inefficient and about micro-transactions Nov 4, 2019

    By Alaskanboii
    This 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.
  • 2 Cons Jul 25, 2021

    By SwampUSA
    I 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!

    By Kai_1
    So I’ve been playing Homescapes for the past couple of months (yes, I said months) and I must say this game I by far one of my favorites and I am finally at a point where can break it down real brief. Short background about me, I grew up playing the classic game Bejeweled! Which trickles down to all these copy’s of the “traditional match-3 mechanics”, however Homescapes does a beyond amazing job of intertwining this type of game pay with a well-developed storyline! As of this review, I’m currently on level 415, have accumulated about 40 stars, and am on day 6 in the story and have only about 1/5 of the game completed (this is a rough estimate based off of the amount of the estate that I’m making progress in! This is definitely a game that I have been enjoying level by level until completion, from the basic to the super hard (difficulty settings)! There are also constant twists and turns for each level! Like the developers at Playrix really sat down and thought of a variety of ways to get people like me addicted to the amazingness their minds constructed! This is pure awesomeness! I greatly appreciate this game! It’s relaxing vibe makes it perfect for any time of enjoyment! Playrix! Y’all did your do on this one!

    Level 69 is just way too hard. You have boxes to break, oranges to collect, and 50 pieces of grass to grow and only 12 moves to make all 3 happen. I think this level for me would be passable if they would just remove the boxes and stop making things too difficult. If they can do that, I would be happy to pass the level and remodel the guy's home. But if they don't remove the boxes, then I quit.

    I think I enjoy the game, but when the super hard levels are every third or fourth round, it's extremely frustrating to miss out on game events altogether because you can't pass a level. I wish there was a constant lives counter visible on all screens. Great graphics and visual appeal help keep me interested, but usually, the game concept can be more challenging than fun.
  • Great game! But I want to say… (devs please read this)(P.S this is a bit long 😅) Aug 10, 2021

    By Galacy_galactic
    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!
  • Addictive but could use some work Oct 8, 2021

    By 5 ⭐STARS⭐
    This 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.
  • Love! But needs some adjustments! Apr 13, 2021

    By emaleighM
    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🤷‍♀️
  • Why is there no bathroom? Jun 20, 2021

    By P. bear 77
    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.

    Good waste of time. I'm up to over level 3000 and haven't spent a dime with this game. Just wish some of my teammates would get the boot from the team for not competing in team tournaments. That would be a nice feature, something like a team vote to boot if not playing in ages. Some levels take a bit longer to beat but that's why it's nice to play because I'm not a winner every time and sometimes have to build up power ups or wait for a bonus.
  • Has Potential Jun 17, 2021

    By Feed up with bugs
    Homescapes 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.

    I enjoy playing the game very much and I love the holiday themes we can win. Mostly, I still enjoy playing even if I'm at level 7000+. The thing that I would love in this game would be the option to NOT put up decorations. Yes, win them, buy them, but have the option to remove them and leave an empty spot afterwards. Sometimes, everything feels so crowded after it's decorated. I'd just like to personalize it after my liking and have it more open.
  • Awesome game! But... May 18, 2021

    By MythraShane
    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.

    I like it but I hate it. Sometimes the levels are impossible to beat. The only way to pass them is due to using all your power ups and a little luck. I don't want it to be super easy but some days I just play it once or twice and give up. It would be nice if the extras (tickets, locusts, what have you) were a little more plentiful, then I might stand a chance of getting the special things done. I think I have only managed to get one saved special area and I have been playing daily for a year. Y
  • Rewards aren’t sufficient Oct 16, 2017

    By megan121100
    I have played many, and I mean MANY, games such as this one in my lifetime. I find them to be fun and even addicting. Although the concept of the game is great, and I’ve only been playing for a short while, something needs to be improved with the coin/lives system. Getting around 50 coins per mini-game, which can take multiple lives to complete, isn’t sufficient enough. In order to buy a life, 900 coins, you would have to play around 18 rounds just to get enough coins for ONE life. I do not pay money on games, never have never will, but it’s so frustrating that you may have one move left and instead of paying real cash, not in game coins, you have to wait for a life to replenish just to try and fail at the level again. Each round can take 10+ lives to complete, and it takes quite awhile for the lives to replenish. There should be some kind of reward opportunity other than completing a day, especially because you need to play the mini-games to get stars, in order to complete tasks, to complete the day. That’s a lot of tasks to do with not a lot of lives/coin rewards!!! If there were events where you can play other mini-games to gain rewards/treasures I think it would be more efficient. I also think 28 minutes is a long time to wait for one single life. I don’t want to give up on this game with not a lot of time put into it already, but if there is no improvement, I might have to.

    Have been enjoying this app: up until today. Updated the game today and now none of the buttons on the game screen are visible so I can't play. I have done everything recommend to fix the problem to no avail.

  • Cash grab Aug 7, 2021

    By greenfwogs
    I downloaded this game as a joke thinking I’d delete it after the first couple levels....... then promptly played all the way up to lvl 50 in only one day. I’m perfectly obsessed with the game. The story is interesting, the rewards are gratifying, and rather than putting an ad wall in the players face every level, the game company sneak ads of their other games into the game play (that part specifically is very cool to me). All the levels before level 50 weren’t too challenging, but lvl 50 is in a whole other ball park. It is basically impossible without getting lucky. It’s not a strategy issue, it’s purposefully crippling the player by limiting the number of moves they have to a ridiculous level, and giving them a tiny 6x6 space to play the level. It’s very obvious that level 50 is made to be difficult to force players to spend out if pocket money on the boosters to progress the game but I’ll be taking no part in it. There’s no point in spending 2-15 dollars to solve this problem now, only to meet it later on down the road. It’s a cycle with this game. They draw you in with fun levels and interesting story and new sections of the mansion to decorate, and then trap you with basically a pay wall and force you to spend more money. This problem can only be fixed with real world cash and I am unwilling to pay it, but if you are then be my guest because the game is- at the very least- fun to play.
  • Cute and fun! 👌🏻 But here’s the thing. Sep 23, 2018

    By elephant3456789
    Homescapes is a good app. Not amazing but it’s good. It’s cute, it’s colorful and you feel accomplished when you fix the tv or replace the chair. The characters are nice and honestly kind of funny. 😄 and I’m glad you guys even included pets in the game! I like how everything is tried to kept decorated around the house. I like Homescapes much better than gradenscapes just because the colors and the graphics are better int my opinion. At least the game is a little better. The problem is you have to get stars from playing one game only. And even on a hard level you still get 1 star. It’s annoying how fast your stars run out. What’s even more annoying, it’s that sometimes you have to give one of your stars just to open a box, that you’ve already given a star for box to get to the house! What I’m saying is give more chances to get stars. Like as a prize. Instead of just money, give us a little money and a star! Or have different games besides just the one game to match the colors. Another thing is that it takes so long to complete one floor or one area of the house because of how limited of the stars you have. So I suppose you should just focus on the star problem because it will fix this one of taking so long! 😆 Please take this into consideration. The game would be much more entertaining and exciting if I didn’t give up so much on the game. Thank you 🐘🐘🐘
  • Annoying Storylines Jan 16, 2018

    By RayneMaybe
    I'm giving this game 3/5 stars for a few reasons. I thoroughly enjoy the puzzle aspect itself, more so than competing puzzle games. The animations are smoother, the power ups are well thought out and exciting to use, and the puzzles are fun. I'm docking points though, because the storylines are infuriating to deal with. What roped me in to downloading this game was the home decor aspect. As a huge fan of interior design, this seemed like the perfect game for me. I got to play fun levels, but also simultaneously get to decorate a home. However, after spending months on this game, and completing 240 levels, I've only just now unlocked the 3rd room. If you can even call it that. It goes living room, kitchen, and then garden? Why!? There are TONS of rooms in this house, and after TWO HUNDRED AND FOURTY levels, I'm decorating a garden while so much of the house is untouched. Don't even get me started on the baking storyline. 6 stars just to bake the cake base. Another 3 to bake the house cake. Another 3 to frost it. Another 3 to put it together. Then 2 to drive it to the studio. Then 2 to celebrate the win. Then another 2 to open a present for winning... it doesn't stop! I didn't download the game to bake a cake. I downloaded it to furnish a house! Stop with that nonsense. It took WEEKS to get through that ridiculous storyline. I hope the developers listen to this criticism, because it's really really turning me off to an otherwise fantastic game.
  • Kind of disappointing.. Jul 30, 2021

    By JunioR19701
    Hey there, first let me say that the game is beautifully designed and has so much potential. When I first downloaded this game I was glued to my phone and obsessed immediately, and then I hit level 24. I’ve watched videos of people completing these levels in the past and they had over 20 moves for the same level. And now it’s only 10?? I understand and was fully expecting that once you get to a certain point in the game levels will get pretty difficult since I know this game has been around for awhile, but level 24?!?! I haven’t even made it out of the first room!! You have to play a perfect game to be able to beat the level and it took me several heart refills as I kept failing. You basically have no choice but to either take your time on this level (which could last several days) or to buy a pack of coins to continue playing. As someone who generally does spend on in-app purchases, it’s frustrating when you feel as if you are basically forced to do so, and in turn, makes me want to delete the app. I really don’t want to do this as I said this game is really entertaining and a ton is fun, but I refuse to spend a small fortune to be able to play a game on my phone. I would love to be able to continue playing, and you have PLENTY of levels to keep people playing without forcing them into purchases. Please consider making some changes.
  • WHATS WITH THE CREEPY AD?! Jul 16, 2019

    By Amityville69
    This is a decent and fun game... But the ads that I see for this game while I’m playing other games don’t make any sense at all: they are completely misleading and don’t have anything to do with the Actual gameplay. When I first downloaded this game it was because of an ad that I’d seen, and the demo allowed me to pick out which furniture, which wallpaper, etc. Then I downloaded Homescapes and played, even spent some money on it because I was having fun and wanted to keep progressing. Now all the ads I see for this game don't make sense. I see some where the main characters are trapped on an island and they are being attacked by a shark, some where they are stranded in the cold and freezing, and within the last couple days I saw two more that DONT MAKE SENSE! The guy has to pee and he’s running down the hall and things are breaking. Then the reason I wrote this review is because I was so confused and disturbed by the one I just saw: the guy has his hands and feet tied to bed posts and the room is on fire and he wants to escape. That seems macabre and violent; who tied him there... his parents? It’s creepy when you compare it to the actual innocent and child friendly gameplay. What in the world was that ad?! Why would you make that strange violent ad to promote this game? I’m disturbed... lol... it’s been months and months since I’ve seen an ad that depicts anything similar to the actual gameplay. :/
  • Developers, PLEASE read this. Jul 12, 2021

    By awtwidkkvbsklappxjc
    This game is fun, engaging, and challenging! Not to mention it doesn’t have any ad’s (THANK YOU!!). However, sometimes the levels can get TOO challenging. I’m currently on level 60 and it’s near impossible. I’ve been on it for a couple of days now and I just can’t get past it. They only give you about 12 moves to get so much stuff, and it’s not even worth it. I’m not sure if this is a marketing strategy, but it’s a crappy one. I swear the creators don’t even try to do the levels themselves, because if they did they would be able to see that there is no way to get past the level without paying for anything. There should be some sort of “skip” level or something similar so that you aren’t stuck on the same level for weeks on end. Especially since the game won’t go on if you don’t complete these levels. I always end up deleting the game because of this. I mean isn’t the whole point to decorate? Speaking of decorating, there should be more options. To be honest, I don’t ever really like the choices I have for decorating and I’m always just settling for something I don’t like. I just wish there was more variety, and i’m sure some other people feel the same. So overall, the game can be fun, but Please fix these “impossible” levels. This problem makes me very irritated, and i’ve seen almost all the reviews complaining about this same problem.

    Love the game but..the levels (even the hard ones) can be done without boosters but takes AGES & even though there is skill to making the right moves you need the game to produce the right gems so - luck. Have never completed the events; the points you need seems near impossible to complete it all. Same with special themes and the gems needed. WORST SCAM of all, as u get higher in the levels, more stars r needed to get the same things that were 1 or 2 stars, like 3 stars to start a new day!

    By McGowan Family
    Why does it take six stars to progress in the story? Your hard and super hard levels always seem to be the barrier to needing one more star to advance the story. During your month long events, the deck stacked against the player to the point, if no money is spent, there is no way I would get to level 30 for the grand prize. But to my surprise (not) when events end, the ball busting levels are miraculously are passable.
  • Game has turned into a joke! Jul 5, 2021

    By Tugg 53
    I’ve been a loyal player for over two years on this game and I’m almost to level 3000. I love this game, it’s probably my absolute favorite HOWEVER…once you get to around 2300 maybe 2400 the levels agent ridiculously hard and they also give you less and less moves to clear the board. The levels that aren’t marked as hard or super hard are indeed super hard and the levels that are marked hard or super hard are just an absolute joke anymore. Unless you have tons of boosters to clear these levels…and even then it sometimes takes several attempts…there’s no possible way to clear the level unless you have the patience of a saint, which I do not. I used to really love to play this game, I looked forward to it every single day, but since they’ve clearly made the levels soo hard to beat, it’s almost impossible. One other thing is that the airplanes NEVER do what they are supposed to do, never. They never go here they should for the player, instead they go where the computer wants them to therefore screwing the player once again. I’m soo very dissatisfied and disappointed with Playrix. Now I’ve gotten to the point to where I may get on once a day or every other day because once I start to play I get soo frustrated and aggravated that I end up having to get back off. Shame on you Playrix. I give the game 2 stars because I still do love the game in itself, I love decorating and watching Austin and the animals move around the house.
  • Love the game but.... Aug 30, 2018

    By Lailac2014
    I am at level 498 and I love the game. But when you have 10 more moves left and you win the level you are lucky to win 58 coins?!?! And you just better break out your dollars because some levels you will be killing yourselves to win. Like 498 level I am not going to spend anymore money on this game. And the few moves it gives you to play and the purple blocks that has the bugs in them good luck they get much harder in higher up levels. This level it has the regular white blocks that grow but the purple ones you have to kit them 2 to 3 times and they grow back just one to two moves after you remove another side. To get extra coins for more lives or boosters it is a lot of money for what little you get. 900 coins you get 3 this. And 1900 coins you get 3 globes. The lives run out so fast and sometimes my friends send me lives I see them and play one game go back to collect the life because it won’t allow you to have 6 life’s and it is missing. I am in the room right at the stairs I forget what it is called. Looks like another living room to me. The outside green house it felt like it took years to finish the plot line. I wish you could request the boosters but place them where you want them if you want them in the game. Like they would be added to your side menu but not dropped down in the puzzle because it places them and there would be a awesome move but the boosters messed it up and you only can use the boosters there is no other move.

    Half entertaining, half annoying because of the frequent need to update the game before you can play it. Also, ever since I purchase some of their promo package with a real money a couple of times, the free coins from watching video ads when I'm playing online, stopped. It's unfair and very "business-like" instead of being how it should - FUN. 😐

    Since the 10/21/21 update I can't play because the main screen won't display properly on my LG Velvet. The edges are outside the viewable area of my screen, and that's where all the buttons to play are. Please fix! I have enjoyed the game as a time waster, but agree with others who point out that the puzzles they use to advertise the game almost never occur in game. 95% is playing a candy crush style game, 4% "fixing" your home by spending points you earned playing that game.

    I’ve seen these ads for a long time before deciding to try it out. I deleted it after reaching level 20. The reason I deleted it is because it’s too boring to me. It was interesting fixing up the house but having to use multiple stars for some aspects and even to move to the next day is greedy. The bank I despised. Good premise but it holds coins you earn hostage unless you pay to buy it once you accumulate 3000 or 5000 coins. There is no choice either, you watch your coins disappear. The small mini games shown in the ads are the best part but they are way too few and far between. The majority of this game is playing levels over and over trying to get the next star to fix the never ending repairs. I also found having to use stars to open packages annoying. If I’m getting a gift it should be just. There is some humor and the scenes are colorful which is why i gave it two stars. Had the earning of coins been much higher, the mini games much more prevalent, the bank either free to obtain or at least an option, the limiting of one star per repair and not having to use stars on anything other than repairs I could have seen playing this longer. I tried these match three types of games several times now and always delete them quickly once the repetition of levels hits. If the match three aspect was a minor part rather than 90% of playing these would be tremendous fun, I’d even consider paying for that.
  • I used to love this game Sep 19, 2021

    I don’t know if users are aware, but developers drastically (sometimes by as many as half) reduced the number of moves you have at each level in the past few months. There can only be one reason for this; people weren’t spending enough money. I have never and will never spend money to win a level. If everyone refused to buy power-ups, this evil plot would be thwarted. I like to win a level by skill or by trying different approaches until I find the effective one. Now, I know I’m just waiting on the game to “conveniently” award me the tools to win a level, because otherwise many levels are now impossible. Developers tell you no level is impossible; translation - you can’t win it until we gift you the tools or until you spend money. No one likes to play a game when even the “easy” levels take a day or two to beat, and when the hard levels are impossible without your gifts. Also, it is extremely infuriating to realize other people played these “impossible” levels less than a year ago with twice as many moves! I know you are a business, and some people will pay for power-ups anyway, but making the game no fun to try and manipulate people to spend money isn’t any way to conduct business. In my case, it makes me more determined to never spend a dime. I miss playing Homescapes before the developers screwed with our number of moves. Please put it back like it was.

    I’ve been playing this game for a while and am at level 1700+ Full disclosure, I’ve never spent any real money on this game. Not that they’re not working extra hard to make you do it... When I started playing, it was fun because I always had a chance to win. The kite will do what it’s supposed to and the bombs won’t go and destroy the next move. The rocket with a kite won’t go and clear the row with already a rocket in it, thus ruining 2 rockets. Decorating wasn’t as hard either. You didn’t need a star to make every call and 2 stars for a rehearsal. Around level 900 it started getting frustrating and I stopped for a while. A few months ago I started playing and nothing is the same. The power ups are there to ruin your game. One has to depend on luck than tact to win. It’s now designed to eat all your hammers, kites, gloves etc but still won’t let you win. If I was frustrated before, I’m finding it hard to express myself now. Ofcourse the proportion of coins you win to the stars you earn was always unfair but atleast I knew that in every game there would be some move and a definite chance to win. They want you to buy coins, I get it, they are after all here for the money. But looks like they’re taking away the fun factor away from the game which for me has been the biggest disappointment. This was a good game, very addictive and fun. It’s getting hard to say that that is true anymore.
  • Ok at first BUT not fair Apr 10, 2020

    By Jenn96$
    This game is fun at first but as you rank up higher and higher the more often u get hard levels. It’s annoying I’ve only had this game for a week and I’m uninstalling it. You need stars to complete tasks and you only get one when u pass the level. As u rank up the more stars u need to complete ONE task it’s not fair. Also I downloaded the game mainly to be able to redecorate the house and once you finish the kitchen you get sent outside to build the garden/ greenhouse. It is the most boring part of the game that takes FOREVER to finish. You can finish a room in 1-3 days of completion. But the outside has taken 6+ days to work on and I finally just gave up because of how many unnecessary tasks you have to complete just to get through one day. Every time u think your finally done with the outside theirs something stupid you have to still do. This game is only fun for a few days after that it’ll just make you want to throw your phone in the garbage. Also the amount of coins you get for each level is unbelievable you should be able to get more the higher you level up but nope they just want you to try to buy their packages. Something no game will ever get out of me. As soon as games start to cheat you into wanting to spend your real money is when it gets deleted from my phone. I recommend finding another game to play unless you have plenty of patience for bull*hit.

    This app is free and is fun at first until you realize that they make you win puzzles before you can complete any action. Including mundane actions like calling someone on the phone or greeting a friend. This wouldn’t be so bad if the puzzles were at least designed more fairly. It seems once you pass a certain level the puzzles of course become get more difficult but they also seem to give the game an unfair advantage over the player. As the levels become more difficult even the boosters seem less effective. Where on prior levels you can get a few boosters and they could help you win the level, but later it takes more than triple the amount of boosters to pass the level and they don’t seem to be as powerful. Some levels are almost not passable without spending actual money to buy enough boosters so you can pass it or unless you just get lucky and pieces fall just right. Even when you do complete a puzzle the amount of coins you win doesn’t seem to match up with the difficulty of that puzzle. Only receiving 60 coins for a puzzle it took 20 times to pass. Making it feel almost not worth all the times you had to play to pass the single puzzle. All of this made me feel like I was being cheated and the game was no longer fun compared to the reward so I decided to stop playing all together after a few weeks of experiencing the same disappointment.

    Toxic looking game ad Oct 19, 2021

    By Mary Poppins
    The ad for this game baffles me. What could anyone possible gain from a game which displays life as many know it? What would you gain from other peoples trauma? Why design a game about it? There’s no humour or life lesson or achievement or anything else positive about this game. I wish this toxic ad would stop popping up disturbing my other games.

    Game has stopped working properly. I tried emailing the developer to get the bugs fixed but it's nolonger active. It said to send an email through the settings portion of the game. Which isn't possible since the buttons aren't there. All you get is the background scene of Austin walking around. I even uninstalled and reinstalled twice with no change

    It's deceiving. I downloaded this game because of the mini games in between levels. But now the developers completely removed them mini games and made the game so difficult with lesser moves than the previous versions. Sucks! The hard and super hard levels should reward more stars. For example 2 stars for hard and 3 stars for super hard. But they don't! This gets frustrating. And why is this game needing more and more updates if it's only updated to frustrate us?!?!

    Extremely awful game. Levels are just imposiplble to pass. Ive had 30 minutes of unlimited life. Guess how many levels Ive passed? Zero. Not only I did not pass a single one, Ive also used all of my boosters. I know that the hard levels have to be complicated. But it has nothing to do with yor IQ or brains, just luck (which I am also questioning). If you are considering downloading this app do NOT do it, please

    I was playing this game for a very long time now. It use to be my stress relief but now it becomes the source of my stress. The game is becoming pay to win. The levels are all hard to pass without paying extra. I am already paying for their events which I cannot complete because of the levels being insanely hard. I will have to give up on this soon.

    Used to be fun. I have no patience for unwinnable levels. Since a more recent update many levels have had reduced available moves. This didn't just make the levels more difficult many are now unbeatable without extensive use of power-ups or purchasing 5-10 extra moves. I used to play daily now I play less than once a week. I may soon give up the game entirely. I'm on level 3519.
  • Too many bugs, or are they by design? Mar 22, 2021

    By DiscoKidd
    This game Homescapes is fun, 5 stars. They have designed it as you get higher up that you will need power ups to get through levels. They have normal levels, a level they call hard and one they call super hard. Each level requires thinking on what power ups are best to use and there is a way to make your own, but the designers do put in road blocks. The power ups are bombs, planes and cannons. Bombs are great unless a cookie is covered with icing, then it takes two bombs. Cannons help spread grass and destroy objects unless there is a cookie in the line of fire. Planes knockout random pieces and chains and if there are two chains on one game piece, a plane only breaks one chain. So you play the levels and if you can’t beat the level you are given a choice to either continue by spending 900 coins which buys you 5 more turns and if you can’t win again, you can spend 1,200 coins for 5 more turns, and if you still can’t win its 2,800 plus a few power ups, we’ll you get the idea. And if you don’t have the coins, they are happy to sell you some at a price. I have played this game for a month now. I’ve seen my 5 turns jump from 4 to 2, I’ve seen the cannon fire and NOT spread the grass when it should have. I’ve seen the planes NOT break ANY chains at the start of a level. I’ve seen a lot of bugs that I call rip-off when I’ve spent over $35 this month. I’m don’t feeding this money pit. 1 star.
  • Greedy Developers Nov 14, 2017

    By KokoroNoTakara
    The developers of these kinds of games don’t care about giving us quality games, they just want to say they are making the games “challenging and fun” but are really just wanting us to dole out tons of real money to line their greedy pockets... Challenging and fun does not mean rob me blind just to get through some levels on a stupid game that looked awesome but was deceiving... I am having to use all my energy 3-5 times refilled just to get through one level!!! That is 15-25 energy for ONE FREAKING LEVEL!!! Some of these levels are near impossible and the developers don’t care to listen to our complaints since there are so many of us who give in to buying our way through the game we cannot otherwise get through... I have already uninstalled this pathetic excuse for a game... If I could develope a game similar to this and Matchington Manor/Gardenscapes, even poor as I am I know I wouldn’t be trying to rip people off... These games could be good and I would be willing to pay for packages but not just to get through levels... The ratio of money we earn in comparison to what things cost is just ridiculous... But like I said the developers of these games do not care about anything but lining heir filthy greedy pockets and I for one will not aid in doing so when I can play actual gun games that don’t require real money just to progress... Buying packages should be when you want to buy limited time house items or something...
