Addictive fun

The story: Your uncle's house has been abandoned for years and the mayor is about to take over unless you can fix it up and find the title in time. To raise money you have "sales" by finding objects that customers request. The cash raised is used to buy wildly overpriced furni$hing$ like $400 daisies.

This is similar to the Gardenscapes series but it has a little less charm. You can play in arcade mode (timed) or relaxed. During the trial, play was either hidden object or match three. The match-3 levels were basic and optional. Hidden object scenes vary from picture, scrambled words, silhouette, one-at-a-time, and find X number of an object. There are 15 rooms and each has a hidden key and round symbol (I forgot what it was called).

The play can be a little challenging as some objects are well hidden (i.e. black on black) and others are quite small. Also, while you do replay scenes, the object positions change for added difficulty. To get a better view, you can use your mouse wheel to zoom in and scroll in any direction.

Fun game for hidden object addicts.



ETA: after purchasing with a PCC, I've noticed the game identifies a saxophone as a trumpet.

A click penalty, no volume control on music (either on or off, period), and a limited number of moves on some M3 boards (even on relaxed play) added up to a No Purchase for me!

I'd rather just replay Gardenscapes.

As always, try it for yourself to see if it is compatible with your OS and what you expect from a game!

Happy Gaming to those who find it enjoyable.

I played 30 minutes of the demo. I got to the level where you have to find however many squirrels. I found all but one, the hint would not work and I could not proceed any further. I exited, went to the forums to see if anyone else had a suggestion, but nothing. I restarted the game and it would not load. Not sure if this is a technical problem, but no way would I buy this game.

wish someone would come out with a sequel to gardenscapes mansion makeover. the decor was so much better. i started this and saw that my flooring option were blue, orange or red carpet and knew that i was done--not wasting my time on something that is not fun to decorate

I must have been really, really bored to buy this game. Decor options are dreadful, the match game that comes up about every three scenes is boring and repetitive, the hidden objects are ridiculous - a $36 spider? The silhouetted items are often impossible to discern (a round object anyone?), and the one with a time limit to find one item is just impossible. Bought it, wish I hadn't. Probably won't even finish it.

what to do with the 'winter wear' screen?
no instructions (as far as I could see) and limited moves which I wasted in an M3 game.

It's a fun game and I kind of like it, but the decor is totally tasteless. Ugly and tacky and completely out of date. When they design these games they should hire an interior decorator to do that part.

The same here! I had to stop when I could chose which kind of stuffed animal I had to lay on the floor. I think about getting a repayment of BigFish.....
You simply CAN'T do this anymore.
Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love decorating games. But the ones who chose the furniture should be forced to live in it.......

To me, I found this game eyestraining.
Agree with the decor (now...that was eyestraining)lol
Usualy I like this kind of games-to play inbetween, but unfortunately not this one.

Have fun

Agreed about using animal skin rugs, stopped playing because there was no alternative, no going any further in this game unless you chose an animal skin rug or stop playing. I chose to stop playing. Prefer to see animal skins on animals still living, won't buy any more makeover games.

You guys crack me up with your reviews sometimes; thanks

I loved Gardenscapes and Mansion Makeover so jumped at the demo of this, hoping it'd be more of the same since I'm really Hidden-Objected out lately.

I played about 4 minutes of this game and deleted it, and really, even to spend a PCC on things I'm not too choosy since I have many expiring for lack of spending them.

I didn't get as far as having to buy an animal rug for my room but what really rubbed me the wrong way, right off, was the "Fun Fact" I got after playing a round that told me how most people die in the winter of cold related incidents by freezing to death in autos, not dropping dead in the snow while shoveling as one might assume. Real fun fact there.

I found the graphics blurry to the point that I didn't even know what some of the objects were that I was looking for. I had the sounds on at first but quickly tired of the escalating and annoying high pitched tone that went up and up and up as I clicked on things. The hurried story line of "Hey, my relative died and I showed up to claim the house that's in disrepair so let's sell stuff!" is a big Zzzzzzz. (You have a house and I don't so I'm having trouble working up sympathy here)

As BearKat said - I'll just go replay Gardenscapes since that's all I kept thinking about the 4 minutes I was playing this game.

I enjoy the HomeMaker games. However, I wish the developers would pay more attention to the music. This one is atrocious.
