Fun but money waster
Ill admit, it is a fun game to play.. however, i swear its rigged because once you reach like level 60 or around there, it is almost impossible to pass the levels because there is not enough moves and then you use all of your energy very quickly so you are not able to play for like 30 minutes to around 2 hours while they refill. The time challenges are also way too short also taking everything into consideration. There is more but i guess that is the most annoying problem in the game because if you run out of moves, you have to spend 90 gems to get such a small amount of extra moves(5) and then you can easily run out of moves and then you have to keep spending and taking it all into consideration together, it can get very annoying at times and really makes me want to throw my phone because its fun but this is really almost a dealbreaker especially when you get almost addicted to the game. However, if that was fixed, the game is actually very fun and i would say probably better than all of the other types of these games put there for so many reasons (especially because its so realistic and I especially like the tap feature in the levels instead of the swiping gems situation ) + more , all of the other games also have way too many ads and the graphics are horrible and have so many pop ups and “tutorials” that just waste time all around and it is just so annoying which is why i really like this game over the other ones also.
Too Much of the “Other” Game, Not enough decorating
So, here’s the deal. I love the part of the game when we get to make choices (although you only choose between 3 options that may or may not be your style and don’t get to choose the placement, as it appears in the Ad I saw) and decorate/revitalize spaces. However, the amount of time you have to spend on the “other” game you have to play to earn “money” or “tickets” far outweighs the time you get to spend playing the game you actually want to play. I’m talking at least 10:1. So, for example, spend 10 minutes playing a candy-crush offshoot type game to earn money in order to be able to decorate/paint/etc. 4-5 items/area within, say, 1 minute. Then you are out of “money” and have to play more random games for more. You don’t earn or accrue any of the game’s currency over time/daily, etc. You can play the games to get some, but diamonds can only be purchased with actual dollars from your bank account. I think I’ve spent like $20-30 this week and have decorated 2 rooms and have completed only part of a home exterior and garden. So, in a nutshell, lots of real money needed and time playing another random game to get very little time playing the decorating portion. I hope this gets fixed! Otherwise, I’m going back to playing “Design Home”. Sorry guys! I do think your placement and timing for pop up ads for purchasing things is genius. Tricked me several times! I give you a slow clap and head nod for that!
Great game, fun to play when I need something to pass the time, but there are a few things that could make it better. First, limited time challenges should be longer than three days. Once you get further in the game, it’s harder to win levels, which means harder to earn tickets, and less chance of completing the limited time challenges before they expire, especially when every change to the room costs around eighty tickets. When you only get around twenty tickets in one level (although in some you earn much less) it will take a while to actually make one change. At the very least, changes should be less expensive. You could also make it to where on hard levels, tickets are doubled just like the coins. Second, we should be able to choose when we get to use the prizes. If we earn a one hour life prize, we should be able to choose when to use it, not just when we earn it because sometimes I’m not able to use it right then and then it just goes to waste. Finally, it should be easier to earn diamonds. Except for the occasional time when you can watch a video to earn ten diamonds, the only time you can get diamonds is if you buy them. So once you use them, you’re out of luck unless you want to spend real money on them. All in all, this is a fun game that could be even better with just a few adjustments.
This was one of my favorite “match three games“ since it’s just a little bit different by eliminating groups of blocks rather than swapping gems, and I really liked the decorating portion of the game. Similar to Homescapes, but with much more realistic remodels, that I thought might be giving me ideas for my own home! But has anybody else gotten to a high enough level to realize that the game just keeps repeating itself? Thus, the reason for my low rating. I'm on level 1378, and I was feeling like I had played many of the levels previously, but I started the game again on a different device and just reached level 400. Within the last 10 or 20 levels I realized my two devices are matching up game after game, despite the vast difference in level number. Also, as other reviewer’s have stated the game does not give you any additional earnings the higher you go, but the cost of the remodel is becoming significantly higher. At this point I now have to win at least 10 levels for every single item that I “purchase“ for my upgrade. As for the people who complain that you have to spend real money to play this game, they are wrong. Yes, you do have to spend real money to get gems, but the gems aren’t necessary to the game. No, you may not be able to refill your lives, or pay for extra moves without them, but that doesn’t mean that they are required.

This game looks like every designers dream game, right? As someone who thoroughly enjoys creating spaces, I was convinced this would be everything I needed in a game. Boy how wrong I was. This game is set up to draw you in and then the levels get increasingly harder and harder and you only have 5 lives to play games unless you spend all of your real world, hard earned money. And some of the levels are just impossible to beat. You can tell they change the game as you play because after enough times of trying and waiting a half hour for a life to come back, all of a sudden the colored blocks fall so you can get a power up. It’s honestly a joke. I have been counting how many tries it takes to beat a level (mind you, I’m TRYING to beat it) and the most games I’ve played to level up is 37 times. THIRTY SEVEN TIMES and you know how many levels you have to beat in order to even buy anything? I’d say the average is 3. So if it takes 37 times to beat ONE level and you need to beat 3 in order to buy anything, and you only get 5 tries until you’re out of lives and have to wait a half hour to get just one of those lives back, you’re sitting at 2-3 days just to buy an overpriced dresser that’s not even you’re style. There are only 3 options for each item you get to buy and most of the time, you’re just settling. It’s not what the rating makes it out to be. I have no idea who is rating it this high because I’ve read so many reviews that feel the same way as I do.

Ok, I give up on many things you could do to improve this fun game, and when it first came out I had read where you were going to lower the price of items to buy to finish a room and actually for a while that’s what I thought I noticed, now the amounts have gotten huge. During this crazy time we are having with the Coronavirus, how about some free play? I can go through my 5 chances in under 3 to fine minutes and still never finish the level, heck, sometimes it takes a day of continuous trying and I still may not clear it 😳😷🤒🤧Final Update: do you actually care what so many of us are trying to explain to the developers of this game? Because it has almost become ridiculous how difficult some of these levels are. Update: by taking the time to read other reviews it made me feel like I am not the only one having issues, please please please update because I truly enjoy the game but the developers have made it almost impossible. Original review:I really enjoy the game but some levels are too difficult by far, if that’s done this way to make you have to purchase more moves it’s really unfortunate because it’s happening very often and I am on level 106; so I know how to play games. All other games at least give you a daily bonus or credit of some kind, please make a few tweaks because all that said I really do enjoy the game.

I love this game!!!
But there are two things that I would recommend to make the game better. First I would like to comment on the adds there are not many adds which is amazing. You never really get that in a game. First concern is that there is not really any way to get diamonds except by buying them. I don’t really like that but it is not the worst. You just have to get used to that. I am a big fan of the property brothers show and this is the closest I have ever gotten to feeling like I am in the show. 😄😄😄 I like that this is a challenging game. When you play the puzzles they are so much fun but if you get past level 100 it is almost impossible to beat it. When you get far in the game and there is a 3 day challenge i have to delete the app and completely restart to complete the challenge. Second concern I would like there to be a way to make DIY furniture before you get to level 400 that is a really disappointing feature in this game. One more comment I have told all of my friends about it and they feel the same way. it would be so great if you would put some of these features in the next update. Thanks for reading this article I am looking forward to the next update ♥️♥️one of the players in property brothers
This Game Could Be Awesome
So, I’m really enjoying the design concept of this game- when you can actually do the design part. This is another Candy Crush copycat where you spend more time trying to complete these ridiculous puzzles in order to “earn” money to actually do the renovations. Each piece of the renovation costs a lot of money so you end up having to complete at least three puzzles just to incorporate one design. You only get five chances to complete a puzzle before you are out of lives. Then they want you to spend your money to buy more chances. The puzzles are not easy. The one thing that kills me is that each time you complete a puzzle, you earn gems that go into a piggy bank. Here’s the kicker- they limit the number of jewels you collect and when the piggy bank is full, the only way to empty it to use the jewels to buy more lives, you have to pay $2.99- even though you earned the jewels. You need them in order to buy more chances to solve the puzzle. I love when you get to do the decorating, but it takes forever to do that. What’s going to end up happening is that I’m going to start resenting Drew and Jonathan because every time I get frustrated from not solving a puzzle I hear them say “Oh, so close.” Really Property Brothers? I just want to design houses!!
This app is about one thing only, making more money for the already rich Property Brothers. It is not a game about design - as the design options are few. You are required to play through several layers of unrelated games to earn cash or tickets. Completing a level is difficult at best. It takes 3-6 explosions just to clear 1 wooden box and there are many along with other obstacles that must be removed. Bottom line is that you’ll spend hours trying to complete a level to earn a fourth or third of what you need to purchase the opportunity to design one piece of the room - spending as much as $2000 for a plant! The reality is that they want you to buy extra lives and the explosives to complete the level. It’s funny - after spending hours or days trying to beat a level, all of a sudden the game gives you numerous bombs and you’re able to complete the level without any problem whatsoever. How is that possible? It’s by design, to keep you hooked.
If you’re looking for a design game or app - this is not what you’re looking for. This is nothing but an attempt at a money grab! I thought better of the brothers. Guess I was wrong. Now I know some will say the brothers aren’t developing the game, but they are allowing their name to be used and I’m sure they have some say. What could have been an awesome design game is just another bubble busting game. My bubble was busted for sure.

I don’t really write reviews but I thought this one needed one, it’s a great game but there is one thing I would like you to add, you should make it so you can skip a level for an ad because I’ve been stuck on 93 for a while and it’s kind of annoying, so if you added that it would be great and I bet you would make more money off of it. Other than that this game is awesome it doesn’t need WiFi so I love playing it whenever we go on road trips. Ok there is one thing that I forgot to write yesterday so here ya go... so when you get unlimited lives for a certain amount of time I usually am gonna be done after I finish the ten levels to get the unlimited lives, so you should be able to activate the lives whenever you want. So after you loose all your lives it can offer to start that or there is a button that if you click it it has an inventory of all the unlimited lives that you have unlocked and you can activate it. I hope you add this because it’s annoying because my mom put OurPact on my phone so I can have one hour, and usually it kicks me off the game right when I get the gift. Hopefully you can understand why you should add these features for all the OurPact kids on here ok bye I’m done
