Updated review


Update 2: I got a new iPad for Christmas and I went to email who helped me before and TeamLava no longer accepts emails. You have to fill out a "ticket" with your request. I did that and I got an automated email with my ticket #. It has been almost 2 weeks and nothing. My game still isn't transferred, there is no one to contact. It says in the email to reply to the email with any questions but when I do, i get ANOTHER email saying they do not accept emails. 😳 The automated email also says I can check the status of my ticket by clicking on the ticket number but when I do that it takes me to their website with an error message. They must really want people to NOT play their games.

Update: I contacted TeamLava and they were able to teansfer my game for me. The customer service was great! Although I do think the game needs updating with a login so you can transfer data yourself and maybe a few more challenges, I am very happy now 😊

I was very invested in this game. Then I got a new phone and nothing carried over! I was up to a $1.6 mil home and had over 50 neighbors and now I'm back at square one. I emailed about it and the only thing I received was a link how to login in to every other game they make EXCEPT Home Design Story. Trying decide if it's worth the time to start over.

Pretty Amazing


This game is pretty cool, some people say that the update or whatever does not let there builds transfer for downloading the app again. I have not had any problems with that, and I'm actually glad that it transfers because I built a lot of things and I broke my phone, it did not work anymore and Apple could not fix it. I'm so glad when I got a new phone that I realized data transfers. One problem, gems are way to hard to get, you can only buy them with real money (or at least I think) and things are way to expensive with gems. The pink couch is like 2k and the orange couch is like 46 gems! What if I don't like the color pink? I have to save up lots of gems. Please fix the prices, some things are just to much. Thank you for the wonderful game, but you should probably find a way to send private messages to your neighbors, not worldwide or public. Thank you for this app and all your good work!😘🏘👩🏻‍💻

Great game💜just 5 things


5 Opinionated flaws!

1: I wish there were easier ways to earn gems other then buying them with real money! And getting apps!
Or have less items you have to pay for with gems. A lot of good items are gems.

2: I also wish there was a way you could move doorways and choose where you want them. ( if you want them)

3: and I love this game so much. I'm at level 15. Best designing game yet! I wish some of the items you buy didn't take so long! I'm not a patient person! 😳when I save up money and am ready to decorate my new room.... NOPE. I have to wait 16 HOURS! Seriously?

4: why can't we SELL or STORE unbuilt furniture. What if you don't want it anymore or your neighbors won't give you the materials you need!! Then you'll have like a million boxes lying around your house. So annoying.

5: (this is really annoying) so with couches and stuff you'll have a pink couch for coins and a green couch for gems. Pink one is $2K and the green one is 30 GEMS. What if I don't want pink and I don't get tricked into buying gems and getting apps😠
I think you should have like one kind of couch and be able to choose the color like for example an arm chair and you can choose from blue, pink, or green.

Thanks. If you read this TeamLava please consider changing these things especially number1.
