Homescapes is a free-to-play game on Andriod and iOS that is a Gardenscapes spin-off. Both are match-3 puzzle games with a storyline. The story of Homescapes revolves around Austin the Butler who feels homesick and moves back home with his parents, Olivia and William who tell him they are going to sell the family mansion which is in poor condition. Your job is to help Austin restore his ancestral home to its former glory by accumulating stars which are only accessible through the completion of match-3 puzzles with all sorts of main goals attached to them. Check out our Homescapes Walkthrough and Guide to find out how you can help Austin. .
Can't Find a Match?
If you remain idle whenever you find yourself in a position where you can't find an easy match, the game after a few seconds will highlight the best match to make at that moment. However, if it’s just a simple three-piece match that comes up during one of the tougher levels you will find it more beneficial if you try and seek out a four- or five-piece match instead.
Boosters are power-ups that will usually be able to get you out of sticky situations. There are Boosters you can create on the game board, Boosters you can place on the board before a match, and Boosters that come in handy as a last resort. Check out our Power-Ups Guide to find out what combinations make the various Boosters in Homescapes.
