    5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first! May 4, 2012
    By Nicole
    Verified Purchase
    I just completed part one of this game Gardenscapes and while I enjoyed it there were some things about it that I didn't care for. I decided to purchase Gardenscapes: Mansion Makeover and I gotta say, the designers did a great job making this one more entertaining.

    The graphics are beautiful as always, the premise is extremely fun (to remodel the hall of your old dilapidated mansion), and with a lot of decorations to choose from the game seems longer than the first Gardenscapes.

    It's also left a door opened for them to potentially design another Gardenscapes game where you remodel the rest of the home.

    There are no mini-games so this series is perfect for the seek and find fans who don't care for adventures or mini-games that many hidden object games rely on.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Upstairs, downstairs in the mansion . . . May 10, 2012
    By JABB
    Verified Purchase
    A continuation of Gardenscape, Gardenscapes: Mansion Makeover takes the action inside. The birds-eye view is centered on the great room, upstairs and down. You need to make some needed renovations before a party planned for your friends can take place. Cash is raised by selling off some of your hoard of stuff (this mansion holds a lot!) Find the hidden objects shoppers want in a timely manner, and they'll give you the full offered amount. Make them wait too long, you have less friendly customers who give you less cash. You have the option of playing in timed or relaxed mode. When you've scrounged enough $$$, you select which version of upgrade you want. As the levels increase, so does the price. The graphics presented are cheery and colorful~~~this is a feel good game to play. :^)

    Gardenscapes is one of my all-time favorite hidden-object games and this is a faithful sequel. I was a little disappointed when Farmscapes tried to combine hidden object along with match-3 and other puzzles so I'm glad Gardenscapes: Mansion Makeover returned to the gameplay resembling the original game. Your faithful butler, Austin and pet dog return with a new area to renovate. In the first Gardenscapes, you renovated the outside, now you are renovating the inside of the mansion. The rooms have changed, a few new songs have been introduced and you even get to hear Austin for the first time (not what I expected.) Still, there is a feeling of sameness a the sound effects, completion music, and Austin's antics and interactions with his dog and other people remain largely unchanged. That's a good thing in my book because it was hard to improve upon the original game. It's cheery and whimsical and rewards you for your sleuthing by allowing you to purchase improvements to your house. Like most Playrix games, it's not too difficult so hidden-object aficionados seeking high challenge and complex puzzles will probably need to search elsewhere. The rest who want a true "casual" gaming experience will love this game.

    The only reason I can't give this game five stars is because I have discovered too many vague and incorrect English translations. For instance, I scoured an entire area searching for a "tennis ball" and decided on a whim to select a baseball instead. Sure enough, that was what was being sought. Other times I get requests for vague items such as "for baking".

    4.0 out of 5 stars Hidden objects December 25, 2012
    By cyn ann

    I do like these games, however, if you're a true hidden object player, you'll find this easy. For me, I just play them for enjoyment while I'm watching t.v. This suits me fine. I like that I get to earn items and build a scene.

    3.0 out of 5 stars short November 4, 2012
    Verified Purchase
    I have to say, I was a little disappointed in this one. I had the Gardenscapes and loved it. It lasted a while before the garden was complete. This one was over in 2 days. Thank goodness it was only $7.00, otherwise I would have felt like I was gibed. The graphics of course were wonderful. I wish they would have done the entire mansion. Let you go into other rooms and redo them also. And then possible let you see the mansion from the outside, back and front. Then walk in and see the rooms. That would have been fantastic.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Gardenscapes: Mansion Makeover September 25, 2014
    Verified Purchase
    Please see my review of "Gardenscapes" for the basics on this series' gameplay.

    I was grinning like an idiot throughout much of this game. Perhaps that illustrates how fun and fulfilling I found it to be?

    Plot: You and Austin the butler from the first "Gardenscapes" game were so busy fixing up the garden completely forgot about the mansion itself! It's not in the best shape. Not to worry, all you need to do is hold yet more "jumble sales" by searching the mansion for items that people will buy, so you can redo the mansion's interior in time to be featured on TV and host an open-house party!

    Gameplay here isn't much different from the previous game--you search numerous rooms, either in timed or relaxed mode, for various hidden objects and collect the payments customers give you for these items. You also keep your eyes open for hidden coins. You get to choose from three designs each for every mansion upgrade (you can change them later if you have the funds), name the pet dog (again I had fun naming the poor thing "Foofy"), and fulfill various special orders/tasks for certain customers in return for yet more items to decorate the house (for example, one customer gives you some paintings for the walls, another some fireworks for your party, yet another gives you a discount on a big-screen TV, etc.). In a few of these special assignments, you venture out into the garden from the previous game. And just as before, during all this Austin wanders around the mansion making random amusing comments and interacting with the environment. (Click on the dog's bowl, for example, and Austin will give it something to eat.
