I have a couple of questions???

Stacy L. Smith

I have a question,!?How can I update a version of Homescape which is supposed to be a free game with the option if you so choose to spend money to get more lives & or more of the little doohickey thingys that help you get through each level, however some thing popped up that said I must install the new version but fir some reason it’s not letting me because I don’t want to put more money in my account than I actually have that I know that I can spend. But it’s a free game that I already have installed on my phone so why can’t I just update the friggin thing without having to have some debit card? And or how can I go about updating it without having to have money in that account? I know I didn’t use a credit card because I don’t have any credit cards. And I also know that my debit card is valid because it’s a debit card however I just only keep the minimum balance in that account unless I have more money that I know that I can afford to spend. And I also know that I didn’t use some friggin Apple Pay Card so it shouldn’t be telling me that the card number I gave them is invalid because they said they would only charge me for purchases that I make. Thus if I’m not trying to purchase something that costs money then why is it that they are trying to charge my debit card by way of that particular game especially since all I’m trying to do is do what it said I had to do which is update the app.!?

Ads other games such annoying

observant girl

Update : I like new updated every events. It’s beautiful graphics. But please reduce ads pop up it would be more fun.
Why you didn’t listen players? I love this game and i have 4 accounts. I even support your game to buy rubies too!

I like investigation games i like everything about this game it’s beautiful graphics and fun. Except i hate the ads. There are ads games popped up so many times after done playing each times. It’s so annoying. I had to press X to turn it off when the ads popped up. I don’t understand why you have to have ads games to interrupt players too often. It’s not include pushy purchase stuff in the games popped up after done playing each times. And there are friends automatically invited play other games but they didn’t send invitations. It’s just sent by automatically but it’s so annoying i had to press X to delete invitations other games too often. There are many players complain about ads and invitations other games. Please don’t do these things to annoys players and please reduce or stop these ads. I like playing this game i have four accounts i bought some rubies. I don’t mind spending money on this game. I have been playing almost a year and everyday when i have time. I never wrote review any apps before but i had to write review at this time because i feel so annoyed these ads popped up! Sigh...

Addicting.. When playable


I'm truly addicted. The locations are artistic and the additional gameplay features like monsters and mini games have made this my favorite hidden object game. However, the gems come too slowly for a free player to enjoy it much at all, and the prices are too high to get any amount that would make a worthy difference in the game. Both the real $$cost of gem and coin packages and the game-currency cost of chests, treasuries, tools, boosts etc.. are too high to allow any satisfaction after dropping real dollars on pretend moneys that disappear so fast. Like I said though, I'm addicted and have three accounts. I only make purchases on two accounts and the truth is that the fifty dollars I've dropped so far on each of them hasn't brought me any farther in the game than my free account. Also, the game is a HUGE data hog upon opening new locations and especially when beginning new events. Lastly, I'm tired of seeing friends in my news feed starting the new events hours or even days before my game decides to let me in. It would be a great relief if the app store updates ACTUALLY updated the game or at least prompted the download of event content upon opening the game. The only way to get event content, it seems, is to uninstall and reinstall the game entirely and unless you have several gigs to spare or enjoy those nifty overage charges, it's just not worth it.
