Extra hearts 4/5
Love the game, but there should be a way to earn extra hearts of points.
Waste of time!!!!! 2/5
All they want is for you to spend money... that’s why I quit Gardenscapes... I don’t mind shelling out a few bucks here and there to play a game but when you only get one coin for every 10 or so items blowing up at the end you don’t earn enough coins to buy power ups... then the power ups cost you $900 then $1200 then $2200.... and it just goes up from there... you also don’t get very many turns to knock off the the items plus you are hit with super hard items that take 3-4 hits before they disappear on the first level... then everything even the cat bowl makes you play a game to get... This game is useless if you want to play a story... it takes forever to get an item... I love games like this but having to spend hundreds of dollars to play is no fun... my money will be spent on things that actually bring enjoyment... just sad...😕🙁☹️😔😡
Do you want to play the same level over and over? 3/5
THEN THIS IS THE GAME FOR YOU! I paid a few bucks to try and advance (i get it you need money). But this is dumb, im not going to spend 100 dollars to decorate a kitchen, charge me 5-10 bucks and Ill be cool but make rewards better. Watch 60 videos for a few coin but 900 for more moves. Stupid. Such a cool game ruined by greed. Delete!
So fun, but requires purchases to play 2/5
I love the concept of this game. Mixing the home building with the mini games is brilliant, but the levels are extremely difficult and the rewards are minuscule. I will end up not playing at all because I don’t want to spend money to play. I play a lot of these matching type games and this one is the most frustrating starting at about level 15.
Fun, but lost interest because it’s to hard 2/5
I love fixing up the house & playing the game but I’m on level 61 and have already spent to much money trying to get to the next level. Make the levels a little more easy, I would have spent more money along the way. Instead I’m giving up because I’m only on level 61 and spent at least $60 already. To much to fast on a virtual game. Lost me, my $

Just started and I'm hooked. I can Already tell I'm going to get frustrated.
Difficulty level increases to quickly 3/5
By Crystal 1025
The game is really cute, but I found myself very frustrated, and I am not even past the first “room” of the house. I can see lots of dark rooms that open once you complete all the levels in the first room (I’m on 59...that’s a bit much for the first stage.)
Also, if you don’t complete a move quickly enough, the game suggests a move, repeatedly. This is great, except it’s usually not the best move, and the movement suggestion is distracting.
I’m feeling like I won’t be playing this game much longer, since I’ve already had to buy extra coins 3 times to get past a level, and it’s honestly too early in the game for that nonsense. I mean, several of my tasks had nothing to do with improving the house. “Play with the cat”? “Put parrot back in cage”? Come on.
Great concept horrible execution! 1/5
You have to play levels to get stars but the levels get hard with no more stars you get 1 star per game but you need 2 or more stars to complete the task.
Good game 4/5
I like this game just like garden escapes. I am finding this one is a little harder to complete the loves. It is a fun game though and I feel it needs some kind of reward each day.
This game is needlessly hard and unenjoyable. The premise is great, but the levels are too difficult and the rewards too paltry. You definitely have to buy all the boosters and extra lives to progress, and that's not something I'm willing to do just so I can "air out the house" with no visible change. The plot line is windy as well. Could be a super fun game but they missed the mark.
Playing time vs rewards 3/5
I play a lot of these matching games and love the ones with a storyline. I am not a novice, and understand that in game purchases are the bread and butter of game makers, but they should not be necessary to get ahead. It seems to me that you can only beat a level when buying power ups. I try not to, and it will take me days to beat ONE level. Some of the story line advancements take 2-3 stars, so it can be 2 weeks before I get ahead. I want to enjoy the game, but also be rewarded. I will be taking a break from this game.
Little sad 2/5
By moto raja
The Theme of the house is very nice big the game itself is too boring as compared to garden scape I love playing Gardenscapes it’s more attractive I wish you can add something like garden scape in homescape to wish you best of luck thanks
Amazingly beautiful 5/5
It's so fun and it reminds me when I designed my house
This is just a well designed scam to try and make you pay real money to advance. Just like the garden one they make the levels too hard and put in stupid “tasks” that delay the house renovation part. Graphics are great and it’s a great concept, but very frustrating and I feel manipulated. I will pay a few real dollars here and there to support developers - I really believe in that, but they take it way beyond that. :(
Would be nice if someone made a game like this that wasn't so hard to beat levels. Not everyone is a gamer.. Some.. Like me, like to play games to relax.. Not get aggravated because we get stuck on a level for a month just because the developers made it impossible to pass levels unless you spend a lot of money doing it.
Nice to make choices in a game that is a reward. I won't spend money on the game. I'd rather have a real gift rather than a virtual one. It passes the time.
Definitely entertaining & addicting
Love it!!! 5/5
By Jujus 777
Awesome game! So much fun❤️
Simply too difficult 1/5
I’ve made it past level 1500 in Gardenscapes, so I’ve committed to the game’s prequel. However this game is just too much of a challenge, especially at such early stages. I have been stuck on one level for over a week now, probably close to 100 attempts on the level. And have never come close. If the difficulty is scaled back some to make it realistic I will happily change my rating
This game is so much fun 5/5
I really love playing this game so relaxing and the concept of the game is great.
Love it but wish the levels weren’t so hard. I enjoy a game where I can easily pass the levels with,of course, with a small challenge.
Love the game 5/5
By Mason's Mimi
I love this game, but it takes too long to get to a new room and it doesn't give you a lot of coins. Please fix this.
Don’t waste the time to download 1/5
They want you too think just a simple decorating game. However, just a money grabbing pay to proceed game. Not even worth the time it takes too download.
Fun and challenging 5/5
I am not a professional gamer; just an old lady who likes to spend the time waiting for things to cook or bake by playing games. I don’t spend money because I don’t want to. Perhaps those that are professional gamers would find other games more to their liking. As for me, this game suits me fine!
I like it. Just wish it didn’t require so many stars for one item. Have the option to gain more stars per level.
Way too hard 3/5
By !!!!!**love it
Fun game but sometimes feels impossible
It’s getting tedious 3/5
I like the idea of the game but it takes forever to complete the “task list” every task takes several points to complete and some of the points spent are stupid like Austin has an idea ( 2 points) there isn’t any daily spin to get extra stuff. Gardenscapes is similar in the way it’s set up but you get a daily spin. Fishdom is my favorite and I enjoy playing it because There is several ways to get special helps & earn coins to use in the store and so on.
Because it takes so long to complete certain tasks, I’m losing interest. I don’t like the fact that everything costs several points and Sometimes I have to complete several games just to complete some stupid task. Also, the dialogue is really cheesy!!

Fun and so much potential but... 3/5
I love the concept of this game (both concepts actually-solving puzzles and renovating and decorating the house. But I agree with so many other reviews. Something needs to change to make it possible to play for more than a few minutes a day and earn stars without spending a ton of money. I'm good at this sort of game, and I'm only on level 43 after three days of playing. Developers, please make a few modifications before you lose all of us. You've got a great game, it just needs to be more playable while spending little or no real money on it.
Love This Game So Addictive
Be so much better if... 3/5
I need more options! Sometimes in games I like to revisit a level I’ve already played but there is no option for that. Because some of the levels are quite hard I wouldn’t mind the option to pass it automatically... for a fee of course. The rewards for passing each level is kinda blah too! I aught to make enough in rewards to at least buy the cheapest power up available.
Don’t get me wrong, I do like this game. The story line so far is sweet but I’d like to make more progress than I do and it’s very frustrating when I spend days on the same level!
Love-hate relationship with this game. 3/5
In simple terms, it takes way too long to get off a level and I’m pretty good. It takes way too long to accumulate new lives. It cost way too much to refill lives in relation to how much you get for completing a level. So taking all of that into consideration, it takes way too long to renovate the house; but, the graphics are awesome.
Can I rate 6 stars?🎖🎖🎖🎖🎖🎖
Ridiculously hard! 1/5
By Ticked off iPhone user!
I downloaded this and Gardenscapes at the same time. I’m STUCK on level 112 in this game and I’m on level 337 in Gardenscapes. This game isn’t fun anymore, it’s just frustratingly tedious. I’m not even sure why it’s rated at 4.5 stars. Look at their Facebook page and you’ll see all the complaints. Just don’t waste any money on this garbage!
Not having fun 1/5
The purpose for playing these games is to be challenged and enjoying the game. I spend most of my time on township I also spend an average of $30 a month. But even if I didn’t spend money I would be enjoying it. This game and Gardenscapes are rip-off. Can’t play if you don’t spend money, you get stuck on a level and it takes forever to get out, don’t have the time or patience to deal with a game that sole purpose is to spend money. I liked the old versions better. So I wish u luck and if u ever change it I’ll come back but for now I’ve deleted both games.
Addictive but one problem 5/5
I downloaded this game today and it is like candy crush.i have never played a game that you had to also decorate while playing a whole bunch of levels.but I’m not even passed level 7 and it is starting to get hard.i expected hard somewhere around level 13.i was really frustrated about how hard the levels are.you guys like to push others really hard even when they just started playing home scapes.Im not trying to be mean but this game is kinda hard.i read and read and read a whole bunch of reviews that if you keep failing at a level the only choices to pass is to pay with coins or to actually pay with real money.i wasted 900 coins 2 times on a level I was stuck in.the carpet kind of levels are the ones that mostly frustrate people like me.i don’t understand the carpet levels since of 3 or more items are outside the carpet and you match it it doesn’t make pieces of carpet.i love your games though,this is the first game I played from you guys.I just want you to be a bit more softer to beginners in home scapes.
Fun game 4/5
Would recommend. Difficult but fun
Love this game!! 5/5
This game is awesome!! I love it ! Hours and hours of fun!!! Keep up the good work!! Love the graphics and such pretty furniture options This s so CUTE!!
A review that I wrote in my underwear. 5/5
I love Gardenscapes so it came to me as no surprise that I enjoy playing Homescapes. If you liked Gardenscapes, chances are that hull like this game. If you didn't like Gardenscapes, then why are you reading reviews about a game that shares a likeness to it. That's counterproductive. Go build a shelf or something you fool!!!!
I have played nearly every matching game on the market. I don’t mind occasionally having to purchase power ups but too many of these levels are impossible without spending money. The decorating aspect, the music, the narrative, the humor, the graphics and the characters warrant five stars but I am giving this only two stars based on the frustration level. Far too many levels do not offer enough moves for even a skillful player. It feels like a rigged carnival game where the holes are smaller than the balls. I am about ready to delete it and look else where.
I love this game so much
Fun but too much talking and not enough moves on levels 2/5
I enjoyed gardenscape so i thought id enjoy this one too. But this game has way too much talking. I just want to play some games and decorate the house, not spend most of the time trying to skip useless chatter. Also, i enjoy a difficult game now and then, but the number of moves per level is just ridiculous. It seems almost impossible to beat one level unless its that ONE really rare time where everything has to go perfect in order to beat it. Come on, man.
Fun at first 2/5
The game was fun at first but now I am just frustrated! Have been one the same level for several weeks and can't beat it. If I wanted to spend weeks on one level I would play candy crush. I have even used all 3 power up on this level several times and could not beat it, I think that is ridiculous. I have spent a small amount of money on coins (which does not get very far as they are expensive and uses a lot to buy the power ups) and refuse to spend anymore trying to beat this level, I am in level 154. There are no daily bonuses or anything else you can do for a extra daily coins. I play Gardenscapes and it is just as expensive but at least I can get past levels within a few days, max. They also have a daily bonus and other mini games in the app that make it a little easier to accumulate some coins. I like the idea of the game, getting to decorate, etc.. I will be uninstalling this game within a few days if I can't beat this level. I play it to pass time and for fun, not to get frustrated.
Make it easier to get stars and coins. Also, more lives. UX is fine. Just maybe make it less frustrating to progress.
