Any old excuse is good enough to create a match 3 puzzle game. Who cares if it's about matching candies, releasing Snoopy's birds or becoming a gardener as in the case of Gardenscapes by Playrix Games. This is precisely the company that has developed Homescapes, a game in which we'll redecorate our old family mansion completing the boards in which we'll have to combine different elements in groups of three.
The match 3 game for decorators.
The plot reunites us with Austin, who goes back to his family home, gets together with his parents, and decides to make the home much nicer and cozier since it's looking old. Therefore, every refurbishment to be carried in each room will involve solving a different puzzle.
This new Gardenscapes offers us the following features and functions:
- Combine and exchange elements on each panel to help our main character to renovate his house.
- Become an interior designer choosing the style to decorate your home.
- Several matching levels: use power-ups and different combinations.
- Different secrets and mysteries to be unveiled in the huge mansion.
- Interact with the different characters you find at home.
- Deal with house's furry cat.
- Invite your Facebook friends to play the game.
Although the game doesn't offer us a very innovating formula (Candy Crush or Jewel Quest became hits quite some time ago), it does include very positive opinions on behalf of its users, becoming one of the most downloaded games at present all over the world.
And if you want to play Homescapes on your PC, you should have to download the APK of the Android version and then use BlueStacks on your Windows or Mac to run the app on your computer's desktop.
Hacks and cheats for Homescapes
The game allows us to decorate the house whilst we've got stars available. These stars are usually gained by completing panels but we can also get hold of them using apps of the likes of SB Game Hacker, capable of altering values in video games, as is the case of these stars. Nevertheless, the game is all about solving puzzles so there's no point downloading a puzzle game if you're not going to complete them, is there?
