Homescapes also provides these power-ups and more. Some of the people you get to enjoy are:
Paper Airplane: A paper airplane will crush four nearby objects in a cross-like fashion. When it’s done, it will take a flight to any part of the board to crush more objects. To get a paper airplane, match four identical objects in a square form.
Rocket: A rocket clears a full row or column of objects. This is dependent on the direction of the rocket when it forms. To get a rocket, you need to match four similar objects in a vertical or horizontal form.
Bomb: A bomb smashes three squares deep of nearby objects. That’s a total of 12 objects. A bomb is formed when five or more identical objects are matched at an intersection.
Disco Ball: This is a hardcore racist. It targets a particular set of objects and clears them from the board. You really have to work hard to get a disco ball. It appears when you match five objects in a roll.
To Have Fun, Focus on The Tasks Ahead of You.
For every level, there are specific conditions that guarantee victory. There is bound to be the temptation of smashing objects you don’t need. Focus on the goal that a particular level demands. This is to avoid being frustrated and dampen your fun.

If you must clear boxes, it is best to use power-ups. This helps you use your moves on your core level objectives.
- Fixing the Mansion

When you earned some gold coins, check your To-Do list. There are house-related tasks that will always be waiting for you. It could be room to change its decor, or a broken part of the house to fix or even an item to buy.
This is not to get you all boxed up, it’s about fun. So, if you’re not up for the whole renovation stuff, you can enjoy matching objects. Austin will be on you though. But, neglecting him won’t deny you access. You can still be playing and getting stars. Anytime you’re ready, you can take on all the tasks at once.
