Fun cute and entertaining.... however NOT perfect
I have been playing this game for 2.5 years.... started as a fun task to earn gems on a game for my son while he was away at camp. My son and I love playing the scenes together. The characters are cute and well scripted for their personalities. The events are fun but TOO SHORT... We have been DISAPPOINTED TWICE now because a special event room has closed before we could finish it ... one time it LITERALLY closed as I was working the game and had ONE piece of furniture left to finish... game designers said they would have an event to reopen unfinished specials... have seen NOTHING as such so far... during the event have spent ALOT of money trying to finish because it’s so FAST and seems those purple HARD LEVELS come more and more as you truly progress in the game... maybe make true to their word? Have a special to reopen those extras? Love the game... enjoy it with my son ... but how about making it fair and extending the specials time a bit? Other games I play have special events and they last WAY WAY longer... ONLY FIVE DAYS seems short when the levels take so much time to pass and you only get five turns without having to PAY... please consider making an event to reopen ... I am giving four stars because it IS fun just too hard to make the grade sometimes...
This is a really fun game! I like the people who stop through for help and gifting to liven up the story and it’s cool that the interior designer is there to move things along and make suggestions. She does sometimes, wander around without a purpose, or a clear vision. It feels that the tasks only arrive when she makes a suggestion. Is there a way to buy stars with coins, and replay a level for say 100 coins, not 500? Sometimes, the matching levels take a lot of tries for only one star and one can really wipe through their coins for remodels and projects. Maybe open rooms more often? Also, the concept of the cat is nice, but so far, it gets more coins than the house, while the house is waiting to be repaired. One coin, not three should lure the cat out of the armor, or give it a bath. For that matter, one coin should be the price for every task, except for greeting neighbors—that should be free. Also, how cool would it be if the food items and furniture that appears at the top right of the shape-matching levels, are “set up” in some of the unopened rooms? A little motivation for when we start renovating those spaces, something familiar to look forward to. And the interior designer can even mention that she “put them in the mansion for later.” This game has all the foundational makings of a hit.
My thoughts on this game
It’s a good game with good graphics and nice characters. But it gets to difficult to where you almost have to spend money and I’m guessing that’s the point... which is annoying. But once you pass a very difficult level you sometimes have to use your rewarded star on something like petting the cat or greeting a person. The story line is almost to precise. We like to be able to get out with the old, in with the new and be able to choose what we want that’s new. Not have to do extra little things. It’s very annoying but I still play it anyway because getting further in the mansion is worth it. I suppose... There also needs to be more ways to make more money than just video ads. Beating a level doesn't hardly earn you any coin. And everything you buy to help you beat a level is so expensive. Even buying hearts/lives. I think there should be no limits on the hearts. If you receive more hearts that should be added on the the previous. There should be no limit. Because getting unlimited lives is very rare. We’d run out of hearts still anyway so why give us a limit? For ads to run?.. that’s also annoying. Anyway, I’m leaving a report because this game has good potential with a good idea. Thanks.
I like that the game is like bejeweled twist and how it is creative and with a story line. But there are some levels that are a pain to get through just to get one star. Whenever i run out of moves sometimes the and ad is available and I can do the spinning wheel but there’s a low chance of get extra moves. When the ad is not available there’s the 500 coins to spend just to a few extra moves. A 100 coins for 1 freaking move, not to mention the amount of coins I get depends on the explosives left that I got on a level. If you plan on making levels harder why can’t you just make it so that you can earn more stars based on the difficulty of that level. I am on level 1767 and I am playing the new version on the time limited room where you earn a certain amount of lightbulbs that depends on how many levels you’ve done. I have done 32 levels and I don’t get enough lightbulbs like I usually do with the previous version. You already got people complaining about how some levels are hard to do just to get a star then spend like 2-3 stars on some trivial things. Now I know you extended the days to 8 to complete the time limited room. But for me, I personally like the previous version where I can match the cushions that has the lightbulbs and I can get more that way rather then doing like 3 levels and get an award of 40 lightbulbs.
If you like to wade through in game advertising, this game is for you!
Several months ago I would have given this game five stars but having to wade through forced advertising(for the game folks! Not ads!) that you can’t skip for the most part. Below is a typical game start. Open app and wait for the expected ten second load. Pop up of holiday event, hitting go to event or exit out makes no difference, you go to holiday event wether you want to or not. Ten second load screen later, you arrive at holiday event. Hit exit button to go back to the main game screen you wanted in the first place. Ten second load screen latter and once your back you have a pop up advertising the game sale of X and X being on discount. Hit no and another pop up of a in game event, luckily there a skip button and you bypass the dialogue. Ten seconds later, after the animation is done, another pop up of an in game event that can’t be skipped. Fourth five seconds to a minute latter, you can finally exit out of the forced dialog event only to finally be greeted by the daily gift pop up. Collect gift and somewhere in the neighborhood of three to four and a half minutes later, you are permitted to actually play the game. Seriously devs, are you trying to tick off and drive away customers? All the events are great but make them skipable for crying out loud.
Fun and incredibly infuriating!
This is a great game, until they set the difficulty on “hard” levels such that it will take anywhere from 8-20 sessions of burning thru your 5 hearts to get thru the level. In that time all of the side events that get you extra lives and coins have expired and you get nothing from them. This has been getting worse as you move up in levels (I am currently around level 650). Totally annoying and frustrating. At the rate this is going It is very possible getting to the end if the game will take years. The whole game can’t be easy - it would be boring if they did, but to make some levels THAT difficult is absolutely ridiculous! This is a follow up to the first review. Nothing has changed at all with what I put in there but have more to add. - One of the rewards that is won from time to time (or can be purchased)is a certain amount of infinite lives. This time is in clock time not game play time. There are times I have won 2 hours of unlimited lives. This sounds great until you realize you only have a significantly shorter period of time to play. If I had purchased this time and then lost it because something comes up that pulls me away from the game and loose the time I bought I would be fuming mad. No way am I spending money with anyone who is going to treat me like that!
App Support... or not
This probably belongs in App Support, but clicking the link labeled that just takes you to a web page with links to download the game. Uh... yeah, I have it already, and that’s why I was looking for support. Everyone says about the too many levels to get anything done, and they’re right. The whole point of the game is to have a sense of accomplishment on the screen. I’m at level 3,593 so trust me, it matters. What’s more frustrating right now though is the teams. I’m in a team —my second—where only about 5 of us are still actively playing the game. The inactive players include the team organizer. There needs to be a way to have the system kick people out of teams when they haven’t passed a single level in, say, 3 weeks. I’m considering bailing on this team again because this feature is missing. You’re really defeating the social “excitement” you’re trying to build when people leave the game and there are Thousands of teams filled with deadweight players who have quit playing the game. Please do something about that. Also, it’s really frustrating to not be able to get back into special rooms to complete them. There needs to be a way to do that—if it’s like spending 2 stars for access for 2 days or something. But that’s just annoying to have unfinished stuff that I can’t do anything about.
I really like the idea of the game but as some of the reviewers in the past have said, it’s waaaaaaaaay too slow to be interesting. I would much rather spend my time on the actual decorating than the candy crush type game play... I mean that’s not why I downloaded it... I didn’t even know that there was a matching game to it. I saw an ad from a different game and this is not at all what I thought it would be based on the ad. I can see maybe a different type of game for different challenges and also different amounts of stars, but you can’t increase the amount of stars that we need to complete tasks and only give us one star for completing each level. Plus I’m on level 29 and it’s taking me forever to complete the level. They progress so quickly in difficulty, and looking at the size of the “mansion” there is no way in hell I’ll be making it past level 50... I also don’t want to have to wait 10 mins to get 1 life. Either make it make me wait 1 hour for 15 lives or make me wair 2 mins for 1 but it’s way too long between running out and I definitely do not want to pay for anything. There also needs to be more coins given away because 20 a game is not getting me anywhere. I’m going to keep the game downloaded but only if there’s an update coming soon because there need to be quite a few prominent changes. Overall though, there is a good foundation to the game but there need to be changes to the game to make it better.
PLEASE fix the crashing
This is/was my favorite game. I am/was truly addicted. A couple weeks ago, the game started crashing rather often. I reported it but nothing improved. Then in the last update, the game severely broke. The game now crashes when entering the game, trying to load a level, during a level, after a level (if you’re lucky enough to make it to the end w/o crashing). Every time this happens, you lose a life. I don’t have a life as it is, I don’t need a game rubbing it in. All kidding aside, this game is now 100% unplayable. I’m not the only one with this issue. It’s not me. I updated the game, my iOS, rebooted, freed up a ton of space, entered the game w/o an internet connection to make sure it wasn’t my connection, I’m not running any other apps, etc. I sent another support ticket in a couple few days ago and haven’t heard anything back. If it’s because it’s too graphics heavy, add an option to reduce graphics in the settings. The game will just keep getting more and more graphics heavy the higher level you get. Either fix this critical bug or just give us the option of reducing the graphics so you aren’t disappointing loyal players. The game is completely unplayable the way it is. I’m not even being dramatic. It’s literally impossible now with the crashing. Please don’t let this game crash and burn. Pun intended. If/when the game gets fixed, so we can actually play it, I’ll come and revisit my rating/review.
Do you read your reviews?
I like your game but I read your reviews and most are about the same things. I seen and played with the feelings that they express. So obviously you don’t. Otherwise reviews would be better. You do have good graphics and storyline. Decorating a mansion is pretty awesome especially since I will never afford to live in one. But in my family we all play this one game and I have already payed over $200 since the first of the year on this game. For this gaming company this I just a raindrop in what they make in a month. I check their monthly revenue They have everything in their product that is lacking in yours. I research the company and found out why they soared to the top in little over a year. They studied gaming company’s and read their reviews. They listen to what people wanted in a game and incorporated into their game. Maybe you should listen and incorporate yours. I am sure some of you even played the game especially when you tube is blasting away all time about the game You have a great game but it could be better. If people are excited about playing your game, they’ll tell friends and so on. More will play and more revenue for you. Make the game exciting and achieve able goals. When you can not level up at a reasonable pace what’s the use. Rewards when you level up that’s paltry,what’s the use. The idea is decorate a mansion on less than minimum wages, why play.
Deceptive advertising and gameplay
From other games in-game ads I found this game. It is NOT at all like the ads. It is a typical match 3 game where you earn stars to ‘buy’ what you have to accomplish in order to advance. That part is all well and fine when you actually start playing, but again, NOT at all like the ads lead you to believe. The real reason I give this 2 stars is because in the mid 20’s levels you have to break crates that a wind up mouse is hiding in. This mouse moves to the next nearest crate when you break it, moves off the map entirely when there are no more crates. WRONG! When you are down to the last mouse, when you are down to your last available move, you break the crate and the mouse should go away OFF THE SCREEN because it has nowhere to go and you progress in the game. Nope! It ducks down into the crate and pops back out like that move didn’t matter. Can’t pass the level now, start over. This is rigged. During these levels long before I’m close to running out of moves, the very same move eliminates the mouse. Get down to actually beating the level and the game has its own rules to keep you from winning. I’ve replicated this very thing over 11 times across 4 different levels. Obvious cheating trying to make you spend money to continue. Treat me like a dupe and the game is forgotten about. Make an actual game that isn’t rigged and I’d HAPPILY pay the Devs money for their work.
Please stop making me play with the cat!
This game was fun at first. The levels were challenging, but not impossible. However, now that I'm up to level 75, the game is getting quite frustrating. Some levels are so difficult that you either have to play for days before you get a passable board or purchase lots of coins in order to buy power ups or extra moves. Then, once you finally do clear a level, you get a pathetic 30-50 coins (meaning you have to pass dozens of levels just to purchase one power up) and 1 star. Worst of all, after decorating the initial rooms, almost all of your tasks involve answering the door or playing with the cat. Seriously, I've wasted 10 coins in a row doing nothing but getting the cat yarn to play with, rescuing it from the suit of armor, buying it shampoo, and giving it a bath. And none of these tasks are optional. I haven't decorated anything in days, which is what I downloaded the game for in the first place! I see lots of complaints about this in the reviews, but judging by the developer's responses, it doesn't seem like they are addressing the problem. I will probably delete the game soon since, frankly, I hate cats and the game is quite simply boring at this point. Add edit: Another issue: I have contacted customer support several times to report an issue, and there is never a response. This game doesn't seem to receive any developer support at all.
Losing All Interest
This game has lost almost all enjoyment at this point. I’m on level 4617 and I don’t even want to open the app anymore. I’ve spent hours and hours playing, and the levels just keep getting more and more difficult in order to force you to pay for boosters, extra lives etc to get through. Many of the levels are rigged so you have to play ridiculous amounts of times before you are “allowed” to win. It messes with your head and frustrates the living h3ll out of you. Challenges are one thing, completely ridiculous is another. It’s at the point where now it takes 4 stars to do a single task PLUS 4 hours of “wait time” or you have to pay to “build now”. It’s gotten so slow because of this, it’s not enjoyable or even reasonable. So, fair warning, if you don’t want to invest tons of time in a game just so it eventually becomes a frustrating and annoying waste of time, then don’t bother. Read the reviews, look at the FB page, most people who say it’s “great” either pay their way through, or just started playing. It’s fun in the beginning, but then it slowly just turns into a scam. There is also something seriously wrong with how the ratings are set in the App Store, this game should have a 2 or 3 star review with the amount of poor reviews it consistently gets. Everyone says the same things, developers don’t listen to feedback at all, it’s apparent in the lack of improvement and gradual decline in interest players experience. Sad.
It sounded fun at first but...
It sounded fun at first when I saw the improvements you can make to the house, but it started getting harder and harder and impossible to pass one level! And after you’ve passed it with too many attempts, you are forced to spend all your hard earned stars on trivial things like greeting people and teaching the pets tricks! If you wanna make the levels harder you should at least give the player a lot more stars as the difficulty of the level increases! This was not the game that was advertised! That was completey different and that’s why I installed it! The decorating is fun but it gets really long and tiring with all the trivial things you have to complete before you can actually start to decorate the rooms. I am thinking of uninstalling the game! It makes me so annoyed after I can’t win a hard level and I just leave and start playing a game that gives me pleasure and I actually have fun playing it. I think if you don’t fix the issues like having to spend too many stars on trivial things and if you don’t speed up the process so we don’t have to spend so much time on little and unimportant things and if you don’t make levels actually passable then people will start to uninstall and install other fun games where you can actually enjoy playing! and this is not just me, I have read the other reviews and have seen that other players have similar issues! With no improvements to the game you will be losing customers pretty fast!
