Gaming Hour - Homescapes

Sitting up at 2 am waiting for little miss to fall asleep, I reach for my phone to play a daft little game to keep me occupied for 20 minutes. I'm very tight belted so I don't spend money on games through Google Play but I get through a few freebies. 

I'm well known for getting bored quite quickly but I've been playing the same game for about a month now and I'm still enjoying it. Which is why I thought I'd do a quick blog entry about it in case you're looking for a new game to occupy yourself with. 

The game in question is called Homescapes. You may or may not have heard of it but it basically entails the same kind of game play as Candy Crush. It's a match them up kind of game with different goals for each level. The difference being that with Homescapes you also get to decorate a very large house.

So how does it work?

As you progress through the levels there is an unveiling story where you earn stars to complete tasks, such as putting up new wallpaper in the kitchen. Each task usually comes with 3 options so you can personalise the house as to how you want it to look. The story begins that the family wants to sell the house but their son ( Austin ) wants to keep the house in the family so he begins doing up the house - with your help. The story adds a nice extra touch to the bog standard match it up game play and of course it is strangely addictive. I've spent many hours sat around waiting for my lives to top up. 

What I will say about Homescapes is that some of the levels are stupidly hard. But they are often followed by a level that seems ridiculously easy. It can get frustrating when you are stuck on a level for 3 days ( true story ) but that's how all these games make their money, by making you buy boosters etc. 

There's tonnes of levels in this game already and more are constantly being added so if you're looking for a game that will last more than 5 minutes this may be the one you're looking for.
