Following in the footsteps of the popular mobile title Gardenscapes, Homescapes is another addictive match-3 puzzle game from Playrix. It’s very similar to Gardenscapes, but now you’re helping Austin restore his childhood home into the great mansion that it once was. You better bring out your designer gloves and your analytic spectacles for this game!
Homescapes is, well, very homely, and everyone in the family can play it. It’s vibrant and positive game, and it never fails to cheer me up whenever I start a game. It also has a healthy and supportive community who will be there to help you when you get stuck on some levels.
In Homescapes, Austin goes back to his childhood home to meet his parents. The only problem is, no one’s been home for a very long time, leaving it in bad shape. To make matters worse, Austin’s parents have decided to sell the house because they can’t maintain it anymore.
That’s why it’s up to you and Austin to get the house back into shape. Replace broken furniture, repair old floors and ceilings, and redecorate with vibrant home-stuff to make your house as fancy as possible. Then maybe, you’ll change Austin’s parents’ minds and get to keep the now-wonderful mansion to yourself.
Don’t let Homescapes’ charm and vibe fool you, though. Its match-3 levels can easily get tricky (and crazy difficult). Don’t go into Homescapes thinking that you’ll be able to rush through its puzzles. You’ll have to plan every move to make sure you’ll be able to finish the levels. This game looks simple but let me assure you: it’s no walk in the park.
If you’re playing Homescapes right after Gardenscapes, you’ll feel right at home here. They share similar mechanics, and the story progression is the same between the two games.
This isn’t to say that new players to either game have anything to worry about. As much as Homescapes is challenging, it’s also newbie-friendly. We have come up with a detailed Homescapes guide to help you progress through the game’s levels, explain the game’s important mechanics, and give you tips and tricks that will help you finish the game in no time. Get your thinking hat on, and let’s get into solving those puzzles!
