  • New music is awful! Dump the hardest levels.

    By Sol-234
    The old music was soothing and peaceful. I still enjoyed it after a zillion times. I keep this new music turned all the way down. It is most annoying. Get rid of at least the first 2 or 3 levels of difficulty! They are absurdly difficult. I spend no money on this game because any money spent is completely wasted. What's the point of buying boosters if you can’t place them yourself where they will do you some good. All boosters should be set up like the hammer. There are a few levels that are actually puzzels and those are fun to work on, but most of the levels just have an overload of obstacles to increase difficulty and those are not fun, not clever, not interesting and certainly not worth wasting money on.

  • Love / Hate Relationship

    Love 1. I love earning stars to improve the house/garden because it takes the normal “3 swap” kind of game up another level. 2. There is more of a buy-in because you are trying to reach a goal other than beating the level. 3. Storyline is entertaining enough, yet short enough to not be irritating. Hate 1. Main pet peeve. They say to sign in to Facebook so you can play across devices. This is not accurate (for me at least). I have an iPhone and a Macbook. It does not sync, and I received an email from the developer that says this isn’t a device issue. They do not sync across these two devices. Period. So if I want the bigger screen of my laptop, I have to replay any levels that I have played. So, I have pretty much abandoned by laptop version - it’s on level 65 and my phone is on level 655. It’s irritating. 2. Some of the stars needed to advance the story are a bit steep. 3. I don’t mind all the competitions because I just play when I have time. If I do well, great. If I don’t, whatever. 4. However! When you do earn free lives for X amount of time. It would be nice to bank those somehow - like a power up - rather than it automatically going into effect. It NEVER fails! I earn one when I’m playing one last game before I have to leave, go to bed, or whatever. UGH! So it goes to waste! Overall, I like this game, so I gave it a 4 star.
  • Very Expensive to Play

    I have been stuck on level 124 for two weeks. It made me realize that this game has gotten crazy expensive. To continue to play in one of the games, you have to spend 900 coins. Then when you do win, you only win bewtween 50 and 100 coins. So you are always running out of money. As you advance in each game, the only way to win is either to buy a tool to help or to keep spending coins trying to prolong the game so that you can win. Sorry but after spending a lot of wasted money, the game is too expensive and no longer fun so I will be deleting this app. Also, I have written this review three times and cannot submit it.
  • Didn’t want to put Hate…. But couldn’t Launch Game.

    I’m not a hater, so I didn’t like the game… I downloaded it fine but I just kept getting the “Quit Unexpectedly” window. I tried reinstalling and all that to no avail. Really disappointing to say the least.
  • Doesn’t keep progress

    I have loved this game on my phone and when I saw I could download it on my Mac I was super excited… only one problem- even though I linked my account again none of my progress is there! I would love to give this game a higher review but I very frustrated with it right now!
  • I enjoy the game, but it has technical problems

    I can’t make any purchases in the game. Playrix says it is a problem with my App Store account, but it isn’t because an Apple Representative and I worked on this and we found I can make any purchase I want in the App Store including Gardenscapes, but I can’t make any purchases in Homescapes. If other people are having this problem, I don’t think Apple should carry this game.

  • Far Too Difficult to be Enjoyable

    1
    By CB_42
    UPDATE: I stll think the levels are too hard to always be satisfactory, but I’ve relaxed enough to enjoy this game for what it is. I’ve even spent money on it because I understand that they work hard on developing their games and they deserve to be compensated for it now and then. However, I have now learned that their player support is just terrible. Here I am, an actual paying customer who plays the game regularly, and they will not help me. The game is stuck so that I cannot play it and I cannot access the settings menu. I did everything the support website said - restarted my computer, deleted the app and reinstalled it, and it’s still stuck. So I sent them a DETAILED email asking for support, telling them what I did, including a screenshot of the stuck screen, showing how I could not acces the game’s menu. They sent me a response a couple of hours later telling me that I had to submit my request through the game by accessing the settings menu…. which I had just carefully explained to them and shown them with a picture I COULD NOT DO. So I emailed them back, explaining I couldn’t do this. No reponse. A day passes by. I tried emailing them again, saying “Please, read the message I am writng to you.” And what do I get? An email telling me to submit my support request via the game using the settings menu. I had once again detailed everything, sent them the screenshot again, explained everything I had done, and the whole thing I have been through and THEY STILL DID NOT READ MY EMAIL. They clearly cannot be bothered to help customers having issues with their game, cannot be bothered to read the messages their customers write to them. So I guess I give up. The game won’t let me play it anymore, and they refuse to help me play it again, so that’s it. I told them in my second request that if they did not read my message, if they continued to be completely uniterested in helping me,, I would give up on the game, and I would make sure everyone on the App Store knows that Playrix does not care about helping their customers. Period. They just can’t be bothered, apparently. So heaven forbid you ever have any issues with your game. ORIGINAL REVIEW: I like Playrix games a lot, usually - I play Township and Fishdom regularly - so when they announced a new game, I figured I’d give it a try. In this game, you are invited to help Austin the butler fix up his childhood home, a concept that I thought sounded really fun. In order to do the fix-em’ tasks, you need to earn stars, and you do that by beating levels, which are your basic match 3 type things. It’s similar to Fishdom and Gardenscapes, but with the added factor of the “fixing up the house” thing, which is what I find the most fun about the game. Unfortunately, the Match 3 levels are far too difficult to beat. You simply aren’t given enough moves to complete each level or the goals are incredibly difficult to accomplish some other way; in fact, some levels are practically impossible to beat - I’ve been stuck on the same level for quite some time now, and it’s making me want to give up on the game entirely. Clearly Playrix wants you to spend money on boosters so they can make a profit, and I have spent money on Fishdom and Township, but this game is so clearly programmed against the player, it makes me feel like I would never waste my money on it. Boosters often don’t help much - I once had a level where I needed two more things to reach the goal, and I combined a disco ball and an airplane to get sixteen different airplanes… and NONE of them landed on the two things I needed - which further discourages wasting money on them. Not only that, but if you get to the end of the level and you want to buy more moves, it costs 900 coins, but you only make about 50-60 coins per level… which means you need to beat at least 18 levels to have enough to buy more moves in the end. In short, this game is blatantly and transparently designed to only be playable if you spend LOTS of money on it, but I’m not willing to spend lots of money on a game that is so clearly programmed against me that it’s not worth it. I prefer to spend money on games that I enjoy, that are relaxing and fun. Playrix programmers - you should probably make note of that.
