    I love this game and have been playing for years. But now I think I’m done, gonna delete the game. I’ve been stuck on a level forever, and when I do finally beat one level, I get stuck on the next one. I’m on level 1317 and it’s way too hard. Not fun to play when it takes a week to complete a level. These levels are too hard, it’s ruining the fun. Why so impossible??? Very frustrating!

    If it takes TNT to get rid of the weeds, it would make it easier to plant, but don’t use to much dynomite.
  • Just let me plant flowers

    By AngelinaDanielle
    I like this game a lot except I HATE that it makes me train a dog, call people, send things to labs etc. I just want to plant flowers in gardens. I don’t want to use my stars for those things.
  • Awesome game but

    By trueredroses
    You literally have to spend money if you want to enjoy the game. The levels are rigged, almost as if they want you to lose so you can buy more coins. Not to mention, the prices of the everything is ridiculous. $1900 if you want to buy a booster it’s ridiculous. It would be a great game if you didn’t have to spend so much just to enjoy.
  • A Masterclass in App Store Games

    By Neomatrix1001
    Let me start this review by saying I’m at level 1,900. I have 30,000 coins, over 50 of each power up, and 400 stars banked for when I want to use them. I have spent only $2 on this game and it was because I love it so much. The only ads are optional, and multiple times a week you have the opportunity to earn hours upon hours of unlimited lives. The key to success with this game is to save up your coins and power ups for emergencies. In the beginning I would stay on a hard level for a couple days just to avoid using my resources. Now I’m at the point I can use basically whatever I want whenever I want to beat a level. I have yet to find a game as fair and fun as this on the App Store. Also, the soundtrack is bar none one of the best I have ever heard in any game ever (somewhat reminiscent of the Pokémon games from the last decade). Gardenscapes is a masterpiece, full stop.
  • Get honest

    By for honest play
    I gave a three because of the spinning wheel. It is not random even though “Austin” says it is. Out of 90 spins I have gotten the jackpot only 2 times. The odds are 1 in 8 to get the jackpot. If the spin was really honest I would have gotten the jackpot at least 8 or 9 times.
  • Scam

    By Spootytoo
    This game has its moments, but in the end it’s just a scam to get you to spend money. There are levels where it feels as if the game is rigged to make you lose, which is unbelievably frustrating. I suppose it’s my own fault for downloading.
  • Good game, low reward

    By Gpops32
    Have to work on more coins for completing levels, as well as more stars for completing things like doggie training.
  • Addictive and fun

    By Rdudette
    I used to enjoy this game but it’s costing too much money to move on and not enough rewards. I have it on my tablet and wanted to add it to my phone too but I’m thinking of removing it instead. It’s annoying to be on a level for weeks and unable to beat it unless you buy things. ☹️
  • Ripoff

    By Lb00gi3
    Great game but it takes too many tasks to get something off your do do list. ...uninstalled after 20 mins on game.
  • WAY to hard

    By justcomeon
    It’s fun surely but it’s WAY WAY WAY to hard so if you made it easier I would give it five stars also the adds for this are so bad it’s funny but also sad
  • Bonus Wheel (besides other faults)

    By Breaker Breaker
    I’ve put into this app a SERIOUS amount of $, and I would just like the bonus wheel to be fair. You can see/hear when the wheel is turning that it’ll almost ALWAYS land on a pre-game bonus (bombs or rainbow wheel). It’s like the game is RIGGED to not give you shovels, rakes or other. Game developers, please.., why?! I’ve given you so much money until now. No more. If this continues, I’m erasing this game and no more funds for your company.
  • Fun game

    By JasonSasha
    Not what they make it seem like in the ads, but it’s a fun game. Addicting with good goals.
  • Not enough content

    By Duncanwatosn
    Game is fun for a while, but not enough content is released throughout the week once you hit endgame. Collections were introduced and seem to have been forgotten by the devs. Good enough game but could use more updates.
  • Great game ..... wish we got more lives

    By Wendy1839
    Its a must play!!!
  • Lvl 185???

    By Maxcman01
    Really like this although there’s a few flaws with it such as the rewards system and the amount of starts you get for higher levels (not good enough!) but there’s one big problem for me and it’s that level 185 just doesn’t work. When I open it I can’t do anything it and the screen is unresponsive. I can navigate the game in the garden and such but as soon as I enter the level: nothing. If it’s not a phone thing then it needs to be fixed ASAP.
  • Level 75

    By KAC1974
    I have been stuck on this stupid level for over a week. Almost to the point of deleting this app.

    I love playing this game
  • Great game but the levels can get hard

    By Riley and Charley
    I love this game and when I got it the levels we quite easy..... but then the levels got extremely hard.
  • Enjoy

    By Mermaid15b
    I mostly like the game. The levels can be frustrating if you don't pass them and it can take several days just to pass one level if you don't want to spend money. Other than that it is very interesting to play.
  • Jules

    By TheOnlyJul
    Love the game! My niece started me on it and now I’m totally addicted! Only complaint I have is the “claim your prize” spinner. I’ve watched it slow down and speed up to land on what the game wants to give you. It doesn’t matter when I stop it, it always slows or speeds up to give me the least desirable prize. It’s just so obvious it’s not a random spin. Why bother with the spin. Just give the crappy prize each day. Because of this, I hit stop as soon as it opens and then laugh at it slowing or speeding up to decide on the prize.
  • They want your Money!

    By Linthor
    They used to have a competition where you could earn money for the game weekly. They changed it so that if your stuck you have to pay real money for booster. This is wrong on many levels!
  • Seriously

    By GamerGal2888
    This game is so rigged! You can’t win unless you PAY $$$
  • Too expensive

    By Tnaklote
    This game costs me a lot of money to keep playing and I am really tired of it. It is fun but to only earn 1 star for challenges but after the first few tasks everything is 2-3 stars to due or renovate the garden. You can’t even choose which gardens you want to play in. The challenges as they get harder can’t be one in one try which is where the game costs you money. I like the game but I am done playing.
  • Fun game but....

    By Ceciliajaylaandashley
    It Can be costly and I think you should get at least two stars for completing a level. It’s a lot of time and work for 1 star. It’s new and fun right now. But I think I will get tired of the 1 star reward eventually and stop playing. Cool for now.
  • Challenging puzzles

    By M&C'sMom
    I love how challenging the puzzles can be, I personally don’t play for the story, so that can be annoying. But my kids love that part. Only improvement I would like would be the ability to save the infinite lives rewards for a later time. I cannot always use them at the time they are awarded, and they are really helpful on the hard levels.
  • Very fun and helps time fly

    By JayJay9786
    I’ve been playing Gardenscapes for over a year now.. I’m around level 1000 and I still have fun with it.. I like that it has gotten harder and challenged me more but I can still defeat the levels once I figure out the trick pretty much.. I have gotten aggravated a few times when it takes so many stars to complete a chore on the checklist.. if I have any negative feedback it would be to make that a little more reasonable because sometimes you honestly don’t want to have to beat several levels, including hard and very hard just to do one little chore/decoration in the garden.. other than that, love the game!
  • Don’t download!!!!

    By MoneRay
    This game is not worth playing you have to keep buying to move on to the next level. And the games you play to get stars you only get one every time you play so you have to keep playing and playing until you finally get at least 3 then they all go to waist because you made and phone call to start a new job then you have to start over because you have no more stars to build or fix any gardens. Your playing more of a different game then you are in the garden. Your hardly in the garden. I deleted it right away it looks fun but it’s not do not download.
  • Coins!!!

    By Londonkygrl060
    Love the game it’s very relaxing however the cost of coins is absolutely ridiculous
  • Deez nuts

    Can I get a life doe
  • Low on rewards love game

    By bayntay
    It doesn’t give u enough rewards to have steady...more stars for hard levels please and more coins regards or lower prices of helps
  • Fun game

    By kbratz42
    This is a fun game but it does not give you enough and constantly wants you to buy more coins because they add up so slowly. I just made my last purchase because for 15.99 I got exactly 5 minutes of play, that is not right!
  • Rip off

    By Tequilared5
    Are you rich yet or just greedy. Played for awhile, then couldn’t win without spending money or play level multiple many many times. Guess you were hoping for a hook-didn’t happen. Don’t earn enough coins to do anything. Always a con to get more money out of player. I will play a little while longer BUT you will get no money from me!
  • Hustle

    By gammie queen
    I really live this game, its very addictive, just wis it was a way to earn more coins rather than having to purchase because some boards are very challenging. Austin is a hustler too!
  • PAWS for This Review!

    By UN4DFT
    This will be review #6 if I’m not mistake. Needless to say, I’m hooked on the game. It’s relaxing and even thought I could care less about conversations, decorating the gardens can be relaxing at times. With that I would like to say that nobody cares about the decor catalog and the money earned to go towards it. Quiet frankly, I think a lot of the the decor change choices are horrible and I personally am not interested. Besides... you don’t even look that particular scene most of the time!! Get rid of it! It’s a waste of time and resources! Instead, just double the coins earned! Because unfortunately...the downside for me continues in that the amount of coins earned with left over bombs and lightening is still just pitiful. We the players have to pay 1900 coins to buy 3 round bombs, but for every left over bomb, only 2 coins are earned!!! This has been an extremely irritating factor in ALL of my reviews. The level/board has to be defeated before anything for the power-ups remaining is earned so why not allow them to be kept?? Or at least pay out a larger portion of coins for them!! Obviously no one is going broke even if the coins were equivalent to what we pay for them! They are expended quickly!! I still have issues with special doggie training rounds. On multiple occasions... Ive had 3 or 4 moves remaining with only 1 or 2 paws needed in order to beat the board, and there are NO PAWS AVAILABLE to do so!! Seriously!?? It’s because of these ongoing issues and feeling ripped off that I am only giving 3 stars. Fix it!
  • Love this game!

    By tisha.ann77
    It’s fun, and challenging! I love how it’s improved with time. Very entertaining!

    Don’t like the limited rewards and I will not join Facebook for rewards. I guess I will be deleting this game as well
  • Fave game ever

    By ocnsiel
    Also awesome contact support if something goes wrong 👍🏾
  • Good and bad

    By jdi,skldkhg
    I’ve been playing for quite a while ...... on level 1349. I’ve been willing to spend a few dollars to advance-since the graphics are great, and restoring each garden has been a lot of fun. However, the levels seem to have gotten ridiculously difficult. I don’t want to have to play every level for days on end, just to get one star-when doing anything in the garden now takes at least 3-4 stars. As so many other reviewers have noted-the cost is too high (both in time and money) for too little reward. I’m exactly the kind of player the developers should want-however even I have grown tired of the game. I’ll continue to play my five lives on occasion-but won’t spend another dime. UPDATE: I still play on occasion but the difficulty has gotten ridiculous! The developer claim that every game is winnable is nothing short of laughable. When the only way to destroy an obstacle is with a rocket that you have no control over......and the rocket goes everywhere except where it’s just have to shake your head. When boosters are dropped in the latest advantageous spot.... you again, just have to shake your head. This is not a strategic match 3 game..... it is more of a slot machine game. If the game allows you to win.... you might win.... but it it doesn’t then you won’t. It’s really a shame because I don’t mind spending money if I perceive a value for the dollars spent....and the graphics and story line are really fun! You can spend lots of money and time on this game.....but in all probability.....end up having very little to show for it!
  • Good time

    By Lowfries
    Super fun and addicting
  • Disappointing

    By clbps
    After playing this game for awhile, any fun is killed by the slow accumulation of points/stars and the constant promotion/demotion of levels. Suggestion - limit reward hours to 30-60 min. Most people don’t have more time than that to play at one sitting and bonus time just gets wasted. Or give points for unused bonus time. It’s very difficult to play this game without spending $.
  • A review of the game

    By FangTheSniper1223
    The games graphics, design, and gameplay are good. But, sometimes the rewards are not too good, and some hard levels are too frustrating. But besides the few flaws, I recommend the game.
  • Love it

    By selling sue
    I love this game and Homescapes. Play everyday both of them for over a ye
  • Addictive!

    By Kokopely
    Love the game, can be addicting at times. Wish rewards higher so I can have Austin do more tasks.
  • Fun

    By kbears5
    This game is fun and better now that there are more rewards.
  • Stuck

    By yruscamin
    Impossible to pass level 1414. Wasn’t an issue till now. Very dissatisfied. What a scam!!
  • Cool but frustrating

    By KNiQue😘
    He need a lot done around the house for only one star is kinda hard and irritating more power ups or stars
  • Lots of Fun but!

    By mine60002
    I really like playing this game, but do not like that it costs actual money to get the bank of money you earn! Also do not like that the game is set up to use every dime and then wants you to purchase more coins to be able to win at the games or spend sometimes days trying to get through one game to earn what is needed to plant, dig, sleep, etc.
  • Pretty good game

    By CaraMeaghan
    Able to play without paying for extras.. sometimes takes patience to beat a hard level though.
