Farmland [rating: 4.5/5]
Farmland is an adorable game that takes you back in time to the good old days. In order to advance levels one must first know how to plant, harvest, produce and sell. The tutorial does a great job of teaching you all the various skills in order to run a successful business.
This game takes strategy, skill and the ability to budget down to the very last penny. The objective of the game is to strategize how to plant, ship and store your harvest. The idea is to make the most money by producing and selling the items that are of higher value. The trick is “how” you choose to accomplish this great feat.
Rich graphics and an exemplary tutorial prepare the player for what lies ahead. Once the player masters a level there are new levels waiting to test ones produce skills. If you thought harvesting on the prairie was difficult wait until you are forced to deal with the climate on the coast!
With over 30 levels and 6+9 farm products to sell, this game will keep you busy. I found the tutorial amusing and enjoyed how it challenged me to plant, sell and budget things just right. Eventually I lost interest but then again I am not a patient person when it comes to games.
This is a great little game that is sure to put your brain to work. It reminds me a little of Lemonade Stand, a game I played when I was young. Overall I think it is a great concept with exceptional graphics.
