Fun, but frustrating 5/5
I gave this five stars because it is a lot of fun and I see the developers are really engaged in reading the feedback and trying to make improvements. That said, it really is frustrating. To get the flowers needed to move forward, you have to decorate, but the flower to square ratio has been calculated poorly, which means my island is decorated with tons of station platforms pushed together because they give me 75 flowers per square (300 flowers for a 2x2 square plot) and I do not have the land I need to decorate like I want. Decorations range from 1 flower per square to 75 (buildings give more and allow you to level up four more times for more flowers, but you can only buy one of each).
I have spent, well, let’s just say more than $400 (I am not proud of this. 😄 my job has been stressful and this was a distraction....) and I think that may be why it is so messed up? If I had played slower and just waited for the big lighthouse payouts, maybe I would have a town that doesn’t look like a hoarders paradise.
Anyway, I completely agree with those asking for a way to store without losing flowers or faster land expansions or more flowers per square for smaller decorations or a way to buy flowers (like you can buy gems). Please and thank you. 😊
The game is really awesome, though. Great story and graphics!
Good but needs work 3/5
While the game is good and engaging with great artwork and imagery, I have to give it three stars for the following reasons. One, it is slow to load up. Not just when you start the game but when you switch to map, gameplay, decorating and so on. Secondly, when I pause the game for whatever reason and my phone goes to sleep, I end up losing my progress and energy and have to start the scene over.
Most addicting 4/5
I am not a big game person but I am in love with June's Journey. I literally find myself sending hours playing this game. I love the story and the graphics, but items that I might need to buy are a little expensive. I am hoping that you can get enough coins and diamond over the course of the game.
Love it 5/5
Sooo much fun looking for clues and the graphics 😊
I’m a beginner but I really enjoy this app. It is always something new and challenging
Finally a new building. Please keep them coming. There hasn’t been a variety of things to choice from in order to progress.
Needs Storage! 4/5
Fun game and I love it as much as Pearl’s Peril. However, it needs a storage option like PP has. I’m running out of room on my island already because I have all the Halloween, Fall, Christmas, and now Valentine’s decorations. I love getting them at the time and don’t want to sell them back, but also don’t want Halloween decorations up year round...and need the space on my island. PLEASE create storage!!!!
Close...sooo close to being Awesome 5/5
I started out giving it 4 stars but it really is a 5 star game. Compared to other hidden object games it deserves 10 stars. The graphics are great. The scenes and story are engaging and clever. I’ve learned terms I was previously unfamiliar with. I didn’t want to decorate but got drawn into that as well. BUT....it’s a catch-22.
In order to play the game you have to decorate. In order to decorate you need to expand. In order to expand you need to accumulate an extraordinary amount of compass icons which the game is fairly stingy with. You can accumulate half of what you need from Star Boxes. After that .... it’s just frustrating. I keep replaying scenes I’ve mastered and can usually win one compass icon per day. I’ve amassed over 130,000 coins with nowhere to put anything I might purchase. You can use your diamonds to purchase your expansion lot but those are precious and not easy to come by.
Meanwhile, I wait while the lighthouse gets remodeled and eventually gives me enough decoration points to release new scenes and hopefully more compass icons. By that time... my interest has waned and I’m looking for a different game...or...reading a book.
Overall - Great Job!
June’s journey 4/5
By diana adventure
Is a great game to expensive fix budget to buy compass and energy forget about the boxes there really not worth expenditure of time to get them oh well keep up the work there’s area few bugs in programming it’s very slow to acknowledge items requested and point are real screwy is that all the building you have ?
Cool mystery game 5/5
Play fun fun
Love it but... 5/5
As a Pearl's Peril veteran, I was happy when June's Journey came out. I play everyday. I've been enjoying the story and the themed island decorations are fun. I seem to have the opposite problem of some of the other reviewers though - storage for decorations is not an issue - having enough items for decorating to move on through the game is! I have bought all the items available and still get stuck waiting to have enough flowers to move on. I have plenty of coins to purchase items, I just would like to be able to purchase new decorations and not be repeating the purchase of stuff I already have just to continue in the game. Silly I know - it's a pretend island, who cares if I repeat decorations? I guess I do! Haha. So I love the game but would like more decoration options if possible! Thanks!
Love it 5/5
Just tried this game on a humble and I love it so much it’s now my new fav game

Love finding objects and building the island so relaxing to play
June’s Journey 1/5
I was on level 85. It asked me to use Facebook so I could play on multiple devices. I chose the 85 and agreed. Well I am now on level...... oh ya 0. Seriously.
Stole my flowers 1/5
Made it to the end of the light house to get my 180 flowers clicked on it an the app shut off. It never restarted the light house or gave me the flowers.
Trying to be as objective as possible. 3/5
- The game started out very exciting and I’m not big on phone games usually. The graphics are amazing. The developers have a great artistic team, I can tell. The details even in small objects are fascinating.
- The Island is beautiful and it’s actually more addicting to sit and decorate it than to play the game itself. However, the selection of the items is limited and it can get boring. I hope more items can be added in the future
- The seasonal promotions are great and exciting. However, I would’ve loved the option to remove some of them without losing the flowers required to move to the next level. I mean why would I need 2-3 Christmas pyramids? On top of that, the items with the snow around them become obsolete when the season is over. Now I have a pile of snowy items and they starting to irritate me because they spoil the ambience of he whole island. I would have loved the option to remove at least some of them without losing flowers.
- I like gifting flowers to other players and love receiving them as well. There’s zero communication, though, which would be fine by me if I could move gifted items around the island. The only option I have is to remove someone’s gift. However most of the time, I want to keep the gifts but be able to put them wherever I want them. Hopefully, this can be modified.
- Brown, red and purple boxes contents... this is just plain weird. Purple box is supposed to provide me with much better contents than the brown. Yet, many times all I get is a bucket of paint or 25 coins. This just doesn’t make any sense. I get really frustrated when I see 25 coins from a long awaited purple box. Brown boxes provide 25 coins many times as well and they are more frequent.
- The mystery boxes upon finishing the star or whole level. Again, to get a compass. I have to sit and play hours upon hours or something marvelous.
Bottom line. I play less frequently nowadays. But the game is still great and kudos to the artists and developers.
Love it more than Pearl’s Peril 5/5
I was hesitate to begin a new Pearl’s Peril type game because it costs way too much money to play regularly. To my delight, June’s Journey is different in many ways and I don’t have to go broke to play it. I love Pearl’s Peril too, but they really need to lower the coin and dollar costs for the everyday player. I am enjoying this new game very much. I especially like the differences between the games and the story line.
It’s great! I love it but....... 3/5
I really love this game but I have spent $150 or more so far to play as long as I have. I don’t want to spend any more but would like to keep playing. What am I doing wrong?
You have plenty of money, nothing really to buy with it to keep going. You need flowers and life energy which you have to keep buying to move on.
Again, I LOVE THIS GAME. HATE I have to keep spending money.
June’s journey 5/5
Love it play every day only wish I could open new areas quicker
A Pearl Graduate 3/5
I loved Pearl and was sad to finish it. Imagine my delight when I found June! I saw the three part island and was thrilled BUT the rhythm of playing is off. I’ve run out of buildings to buy and have started the second part of the island. You end up buying extra little seasonal stuff or the same accessory buildings over and over. Part of my enjoyment is building the island but I’ve over purchased and the original section is tight. If the original buildings are all there is, I should have developed more slowly and really spread out but that needs to be stated somewhere. Pearl had storage you earn for extra pieces and June would profit from that.
I contacted Wooga and they were very responsive ! But I’ve caught up to the level of development and am tempted to quit!
Too expensive 1/5
This is definitely a pay to play game. I don’t mind a one time fee, but I paid the $50.00 when I started and thought that would be enough to play the game for awhile. Wrong! If you want to continue to play you always have to keep buying. I’m done with it.
I’m w/“Frustrated....” 2/5
By D'lower South Hill
I am enjoying the game! It’s light-hearted and a mystery. The building graphics are beautiful. I love the possibility of creating something lovely and that I have a personal connection to each item!
But the percentage/“mastering” the scene is frustrating but I think you know that already. One mistake and you either have to wait a long time for the energy to fill or you “get” to pay real cash for more. That’s how you make your money. I, too, am disabled and on a fixed income. If it starts to get expensive, I’ll have to quit playing.
Best hidden game 5/5
Love the game
By Lei lei500
It would be so awesome if we had ability to store purchased items and it not take away from the points needed to move on in the game. I am so addicted to this game but I’m getting frustrated about so much on my “kingdom” that it looks sloppy. It would also be nice if we could gift items that we know our friends need
Gifting Update 4/5
Thanks for updating the gifting feature! Really makes it better!
I have to agree with a previous reviewer about the ads that are associated with this game. Ads are always annoying, but ads you do not want children to see are disturbing. I would also agree with everyone who complains about the slowness, was told it is due to continuing development. I spent actual money on the game trying to advance further, found out you don’t. So if you like the game, replay scenes over and over to get the items you need, keep open space to put in new items they provide about every 30 days, and expect to play this game for a long time.
Love it! 5/5
I think this game is awesome! Others have said in their reviews that its slow to move forward, but I don’t mind! When you’re waiting for flowers - just keep playing the same level that you’ve mastered... this will give you more coins and objects. When you are ready to move forward, you’ll have lots of money to do so!
Needing higher rewards 2/5
I like the spin off but PP has better rewards and the money pay off and earning stars is much easier and faster in PP. I have tried to encourage friends to play but they say the rewards are not here
Love this game 5/5
This is a well balanced game. It is possible to move on without spending money, time is the key. I think it is essential to complete each level to mastery to be able to get all you need to move forward. The larger prize box you get after completing 5 stars on a level helps you get items that smooth the process of progress in the game. Of course if you are impatient you do have the option of purchasing your way forward (definitely done this at times). This game has kept my interest and I love it. The drawings are beautiful and the hidden objects make sense where they are placed. Definitely recommend.
Loving the new game
Love the game 5/5
Really enjoyed Pearl’s Peril so was excited to see a “sister” game. Am enjoying this one even more BUT wish the tokens needed to open new territory were w bit more frequently won.
Please fix 2/5
I need 20 flowers to get to the next level but every time I spend coins to get a bush or a statue it just disappears. It takes my coins and starts to build but when I get back on the game an hour later it is gone and I have my coins back? How am I supposed to keep following the story if I can’t unlock he next part?
Love the searches, really dislike the decorating 4/5
I really wish there was a solely search game, without all the other bells and whistles. That said, I really like play on this game, but I do wish there wasn’t quite so much decorating..
Love it! 4/5
I love this game but PLEASE give us more land to decorate on or storage to put items in.
My favorite! 5/5
I love this game and have played it for hours. I have struggled with health issues and this game has helped to take me away from all those things and escape for a bit. I’ve played mostly for free. I have purchased a couple things when I was especially impatient, because I have loved designing “my island.”
The only downside I’ve had with the game is after updates. The game keeps freezing when I try to find the missing items. It won’t load the page, but it still takes all my life points as if I played the game. If I reload the game, it just keeps draining my points and never opening the page. This seems to have occurred with the first update since I started playing. It doesn’t happen all the time, but it has happened maybe 10 times in two days. It wouldn’t bother me at all except it drains all my points and then I can’t play unless I try to pay. I won’t pay though, for fear of it continuing to do the same thing.
Everything else about this game is fun and awesome. I do agree with other reviewers that it would be nice to have a storage area to help move items around easier.
Thank you to all the developers and programmers of this app. I know these things can be time consuming to build. You’ve done a great job on this game. I’m hooked! 😁
Thank you for listening!!! 5/5
Thank you for the quick response! Love June’s journey... the zoom works awesome!! Glad to be back so soon
I love this game 💕 5/5
By Screwy Louie 1961
love this game
Fun game, great graphics 4/5
This is a good hidden objects game. Hard to play continuously without spending money but if your patient you won't need to spend a dime. I like it because you can get back to your actual life and play again when your energy recharges. It encourages people to have a life outside of the game which is refreshing. Life is beautiful get outside and enjoy it don't spend your life cooped up playing a game... even if you have chronic pain that's no excuse to not have a life.
Expensive game 3/5
Expensive to keep playing. Each star level is 10 plays. You need 500+ diamonds. I’ve been playing at least 2 weeks now and spent nearly $100 on this game. You can’t move forward or build without paying money.
In order to get pieces to upgrade you must continue playing until “Master” is reached. You can wait 3 hours 20 minutes for 100 lives. What’s the point of playing this game of you have to stop every 15 minutes? Will be deleting at end of month.
Stars versus coins 3/5
It should be easier to earn stars to unlock extensions than earning coins to buy items. Way too hard to unlock extensions!
Addictive Until Levels Increase 4/5
I have enjoyed playing the game very much. Finding the objects which can be amusing as well as challenging and decorating the island are fun. However I’ve obtained what appears to be my last building and the expansions are harder to obtain due to the need to acquire so many more stars. Looking ahead does not keep me motivated to continue much longer. Sorry but my interest is waning at level 128. Is there more on the horizon to surprise me and keep me going? I can be patient if there is something worth being patient for.
fun game 5/5
Enjoy this game, lots of action, however, the objects that you earn, don’t move and would enjoy deciding where objects should go.
LET US MOVE THE GIFT BUSHES 3/5
While it is very nice for companion players to give us those ugly bushes, it would be nice if we could reposition them! Especially the themed ones. I just received a heart shaped bush and it's stuck in a location I really don't want. Hate to trash it, but it doesn't "go" in my front yard! HELP!
My Favorite Game 5/5
By BB in South GA
I have been playing June’s Journey for a while now and must say it is the best game I have ever played. The scenes are very pretty and colorful and this is the only storyline I have ever cared to follow. I can’t wait to see what’s next. I have to admit I get a little anxious when I have used up my energy bars but just wait a little while and come back. As someone said in another review, you may have to buy a lot of the same item, but I don’t mind. My island is really jumbled up with a lot of the same stuff but I just keep playing. I have spent probably less than $5 and I’m on about 136.
Please keep adding scenes. I’ll be playing this game for a long time.
Pretty fun, especially for a free app 4/5
Pretty fun, especially for a free app
By Ms. Ernie
Why do you keep asking me to connect to Facebook, then when I do it take me back to the same question.
Unable to connect to Facebook 1/5
By Aisling Nolan
Been connected to Facebook since I first started playing. Suddenly it’s disconnected now and several attempts in reconnecting hasn’t been successful. It just started this loop of “connect” and “reconnect”
Nice game 3/5
Like hide and seek games. Like the story line. Hate the names put on some items like plaster instead of Bandaid , is one that comes to mine. Zodiac sign and backwards letters really take away from the game. I often find myself guessing as to what they want. Now just hit clue. Not sure if I will continue
