I’ve been playing this game for over a year, maybe even two, and i love it. I wanted to write a review to be clear that the game is not impossible without spending money, not even close. I’m on level 1300 or so and have never spent a dime. You do have to be prepared to be patient and play some levels many times until you win. I guess if you’re looking for it to be really easy and to just soar through the levels, this game might not be for you, but i love that it’s realistically challenging. Most importantly, in my opinion, is this is a free game WITHOUT ads!! I’m not sure how they manage to put out a game this engaging and fun without ads, but maybe they could teach other companies... You do need power ups once in a while, BUT, you can easily get them for free by playing the optional challenges they give you, and by logging in each day to collect your free daily prize. My suggestion to developers, if you read this, is to fix up the rockets. They explode things that make no sense, like pieces that have already disappeared, or prioritizing dropping lemonade glasses rather than things that make way more sense. Also, if someone uses a power up on a level, it would be nice if it didn’t enter by interfering with other matches that are pre-setup for that round.
This game is definitely addicting and can be fun, but also very frustrating at times. As others have mentioned the levels get progressively harder as you go on. You can end up wasting lots of power ups and coins trying to beat a level and still lose. Also the rewards stay pretty much the same so you’re basically always getting diminishing returns as you play. But by far the most annoying thing for me is the multi-step process needed to restart a level when you lose or decide to quit. Whenever there is any kind of challenge active where you have to collect things or earn rewards, there is always a pop up where Austin asks if you are ABSOLUTELY SURE you want to lose your rewards/collected items from that level, trying to get you to use your coins and continue. Yes Austin, I am 100% sure I would rather give up these 15 apples I matched than waste my coins on 5 more useless moves that will bring me no where close to winning the level. Of course there is no option to disable these popups, probably because they are just a poorly disguised attempt to get people to spend money on coins. This used to be less of a problem because there weren’t always challenges going on so usually there would be no popup. Now the challenges are constant, and I have to mash the end level button multiple times to blow through Austin’s unhelpful advice every single time I lose or quit.
First of all, I want to say that I love absolutely love this game! It is very well advertised, and it is such good quality. I really enjoy the storyline and the beautiful garden. However, I do have a couple of problems with this game. During the first couple of days I easily went through and played the levels. However, when I hit the 60’s it got hard. Now, I’m not complaining about the difficulty level, but there is a frustrating cycle when you just can’t complete a level. If you don’t have enough coins to buy more moves, then you don’t have enough coins to buy a power up. You can spin the wheel every day to win prizes, but you rarely get something you can use to win that level. Also, if you can’t when the levels and you don’t get any stars, and if you don’t get any stores and you can’t complete any of the challenges and win coins! You see where I’m going with this?It’s almost like the game is forcing you to purchase coins if you need an extra boost I a level.😕 Even after all this, I still love this game and gave it four stars for its originality and fun! I do ask that there be an easier way to get coins, though, like on Homescapes when you check in consecutively, you get coin rewards. I think that would be a great addition to Gardenscapes! Thank you to all the creators of this game, you guys are awesome!
I downloaded this game thinking the complete opposite of what the game is actually about. This game is about rebuilding the garden of his childhood. You complete furniture with collecting starts. You collect these starts from a mini game very similar to candy crush but it’s related to the garden. But let’s get to the point. I downloaded this game from an ad. There are many ads saying that you either, save him and the girl from Antarctica, or you have to save the house with out failing, or save the garden without getting a fail. All the ads make the person fail but making it really easy to chose the correct answers. Me and my friend decided to try this game for my little sister to play. Without even thinking how some of the ads don’t even go with the point of the game. Later on it was downloaded and my sister had no idea what to do. I then knew that the ads where straight clickbait so this game could grown even more! These ads are even used in their game Home Scapes. Other than the ads clickbaited probably many people, this game gets a 3 star. Not a 4 or a 5 because of how difficult the levels are to get starts, it can take days to finish some. At the start it was easy but then the challenge came where I was stuck on for many many days! Any way that my review. Thank you for reading and I hope you can stop the clickbait, thanks!
I’ve been playing this for many months now, and while I enjoy the premise and the gameplay, I found that the game purposely tries to prevent me leveling up. I currently have 23 extra lives (probably the 5th or 6th time I’ve accumulated this amount) that I got from the daily spin. I purposely press the stop button on different parts of the wheel, and yet I STILL get extra lives every time. It’s totally fixed. I’ve found myself stuck on levels for weeks because what I really need is a power up to give me the edge to pass the level, but I’m buried alive in extra lives instead. Additionally, I’ve found that if I start blowing through levels too quickly, the game will purposely make my lose a level by refusing to drop the needed shape. I’ve had more than twelve moves left to me after gathering all the gnomes or the lemonade but one, and despite making matches right beneath where I need things to be rearranged, the game will just keep dropping useless shapes for all of my 12 moves and purposely prevent me from winning. I’ve noticed that the only way to combat this programmed cheating is to just stop playing. I won’t open the app for days and then suddenly the game provides everything I need to pass a level I’d been stuck on for 9 days. It’s very frustrating, and there have been several times I’ve considered just deleting it.
