Below, we list a variety of tips, tricks, and cheats to help you get through the match-3 puzzle games in Homescapes.

Save Moves

It’s important when playing through the match-3 puzzle games in Homescapes to save moves. In the beginning, it may seem as though you have more moves than you need to clear the board. This may be true, however, saving moves has additional benefits aside from giving you wiggle room should you make a mistake.

For every move you have left over after finishing a level in Homescape, you’ll receive a special piece on the puzzle board. Typically, these special pieces will reveal themselves to be Rockets. However, on rare occasions, you’ll end up with Bombs. If you’re lucky enough to earn Bombs, they set off an explosion that will award you a wealth of bonus coins. With coins being extremely important in Homescapes, you’ll want to save as many moves as you can!

Create Paper Planes

Another key to the match-3 puzzle match games in Homescapes centers around the act of creating Paper Planes. To create a Paper Plane, you’ll need to match four pieces in a square or box formation. With your Paper Plane created, you can use it to clear out a piece or even break a locked piece for free.

Additionally, if you need to carpet an area, you can use a Paper Plane and it’ll target an uncarpeted area. Paper Planes are one of the best boosters to use in Homescapes due to how versatile they are. Create them whenever possible, as you never know when you might need them!

Maximize Your Rockets

To save moves, you'll need to maxmize the power of your Rockets in Homescapes.

In addition to Paper Planes, Rockets can be a handy booster for completing puzzle games in Homescapes. Rockets work by clearing rows and/or columns. Additionally, they can be a lifesaver on carpeting levels. During these levels, you’re tasked with covering the entire puzzle board with carpet. To do this, you need to match pieces already on the carpet in order to spread it.

These levels can eat up your moves. Fortunately, Rockets can be used to breeze through carpet levels as they spread carpet regardless of where the Rockets are located. Try to maximize your Rockets by using them to cover tucked away areas where it’s harder to clear columns and rows. Don’t waste your Rockets. Instead, learn where they make the biggest difference and use them to your advantage!

The Power of the Rainbow Ball

While Rockets and Paper Planes are great, nothing will get you through the match-3 games in Homescapes quite like the Rainbow Ball. To create a Rainbow Ball, simply match five tiles in a row or column. With your Rainbow Ball, you can remove every tile on the board that matches the color you swap the Rainbow Ball with.

Overall, the Rainbow Ball can be one of the best ways to get through a match-3 game using as little moves as possible. For example, say your goal is to collect a certain tile type. Create a Rainbow Ball and match it with that tile type to complete the puzzle fast. Pay attention to the board, and if the opportunity to create a Rainbow Ball presents itself, snatch it up!
