Homescapes Cheats is the follow-up to Playrix’s fantastic match-3 simulation, Gardenscapes: New Acres. Followers of Gardenscapes’ combination of garden-building and puzzle-solving will see a lot of familiar gameplay to love in Homescapes, while beginners to the series will have an easy entry point thanks to Austin’s friendly charm and fresh start from the sprawling garden.
Homescapes Cheats starts with lifelong butler Austin deciding to adopt an overdue getaway and visit his parents at his child years home. When he occurs he locates that not only is the real estate in disarray, but his parents are preparing to sell it and move in other places. Struck by nostalgia and a passion for fixing things, Austin immediately commences repairing the house, updating the furniture, and hoping to persuade his parents never to sell and that he can help them love their house again.
Just like Gardenscapes, Homescapes Cheats is split into two distinct sections: the house renovation progresses the storyplot, introduces new personas on the way, and provides concrete goals for you and Austin to work at. Completing these goals is technically optional, but selecting new wallpaper and furniture to beautify the home in your selected style is fun and rewarding. The house is merely as beautiful and richly detailed as the lands in Gardenscapes, with even more variety in colors and types of things to place. Viewing Austin interact with his parents and youth friends makes him even more endearing than he already was, and he has tons of little actions and dialogues to watch in between events.
The other section in Homescapes is, of course, the puzzle gameplay. If you are not renovating the home or enjoying Austin go about his day, you can play the current match-3 level. Concluding a level will help you to move to the next one and will award a superstar and a tiny amount of coins. Stars will be the currency used to complete duties: for example, exchanging the carpet will definitely cost a superstar or fixing the stairway may cost two stars. Coins enable you to buy different furniture if you would like to change all of your previous remodeling alternatives, as well as purchase power-ups for use in the match-3 levels.
These levels will be the most important area where Homescapes differs from its predecessor. As the goals and format are incredibly similar–collect a certain volume of tiles, remove all hurdles from the plank, etc.–Homescapes includes a different group of power-ups and some new tile types. Matching four tiles in a row or column now creates a more powerful rocket that crosses the entire board rather than the smaller version found in Gardenscapes. Tiles can be matched in squares as well, which creates a newspaper airplane power-up that flies to a arbitrary, goal-related tile and removes it. The Rainbow Blast–earned by leaving enough explosions in Gardenscapes–has been removed, but coordinating five tiles in a row in Homescapes will generate a Rainbow Ball. This booster will clear all tiles of the colour it is matched up with, but it can also be swapped with other power-ups to be able to spread dozens of them all over the board.
