Design This Home
Design This Home "Free Download"
Yes, it is a free download and cute, but, nope... not free actually. Design This Home could be very expensive in the long run and it is not worth it IMO to venture into this game and not know how much it really costs. For all I know, it could pay for a designer consultation for my own home in real time, lol
Buying ongoing cash packages, tokens, whatever, to play a free download is a no go for this gamer; it was not 'that!' cute, sorry.

There seems to be no storyline to this game which is essential for the entertainment of most thinking humans. It is extremely s l o w and the fun factor is nearly zero.
In this game, you design and build rooms buying furniture and decor which you pay for - literally. The money you start the game with runs out very quickly. More in-game cash and coins will cost you real money.
When you place an item in a room you then have to wait, sometimes hours, for the item to appear. After it has appeared you click on "accept" to get your reward, which is experience and a very small amount of "cash".
The graphics, sound and music are minimal, at best.
I think this is possibly the worst game that Big Fish has put out to date. "Free to play" is a misnomer.

Prepare to paid extra money to play
To design on this game you must wait an hour at a time to add a few items. The game immediately ask you to spend extra money to build a room. I don't get it. Your free hour lets you add 8 items to the room ( this happens in the first 5 minutes then you are out of money and Big Fish asks for more money to let you play???? I wish Big Fish would tell you what game are going to ask you for money to continue to play.

This game is the most boring cash cow game ever. Don't waste your time, it takes lots of time. Don't waste your money, it takes a lot of real money. Free down load, no thanks!!!

Another boring, wait for it game
I am so tired of all the "hurry up and wait to have fun" games. Who wants to pay to have to wait for something like this. You can't even turn the house for a 360 view, what's up with that?!

Don't even waste a minute!
Absolutely disliked this game. Since it said it was similar to the Sims I figured it would at least give you something to do but no. All you do is follow a checklist on what to buy and put in your home then you have to wait for them to give you money. You don't go to work or anything so you are just waiting... UNLESS you click the buy button in which it gives you a screen that looks just like those on the Facebook games and apps on your phone where it tells you to "Get more" by purchasing coins or bills through your actual money. Waste of time and I hope I don't come across anymore of those! Graphics and all were horrible. So cheesy and lame just like those apps.

There is just too much sitting around and waiting. I have better things to do than sitting there watching the clock move to get more money. There's too much down time.

The pics looked interesting until I got it open and started playing. Even my six year old was bored.

This could be a great game if...
Some of the reviews I've read say this is a slow-moving game. Come on, people...a tortoise could move faster!
The first few things you buy are delivered in a few seconds. That's great. Then as you move along, you have to wait an hour (that's a real-time hour)! You need coins to buy the privilege of having your purchase delivered immediately. Needless to say, you run out of those very quickly. If you want more, you have to go and buy them. For that reason "free to play" is not really accurate.
Personally, I'd rather buy the game and have the coins generated in a reasonable amount of time (say every 5 to 15 minutes). Also, the amount of time for purchases to be delivered is way too long. I think it should range from a few seconds to maybe 5 minutes or so.
As I said, this COULD be a great game. I'd like to see an alternate version that I could purchase outright and not have to do one thing and then wait hours or days to do the next thing.
I do not recommend this game!
