Farm frenzy is an arcade style time management game were you take control of a farm and within a set time limit produce a number of eggs, cakes, flour, wool etc. You start off with your own little plot of land andyou click on various areas of it to grow grass which your animals will then eat and create produce in the form of eggs or wool. You can either sell these straight to the market or put them through one of your many buildings to make them more valuable. For example you can put eggs through the powdery mill to double there value and then through the bakery to multiply it by four.
Whilst making your produce you get money from the market which you can then spend on more animals for your farm or upgrading your equipment. Buildings can be upgraded to allow them to turn produce quicker or in numbers of two to four. The different animals that can be bought range from geese, sheep. dogs (to scare off bears), cats (to help collect produce) etc.
Whilst doing all of this bears will come and try to eat your livestock so you have to cage them and sell them to the market.
The game's great fun and is also available on the nokia 5800 mobile phone costing around three pounds. The PC game costs under ten pounds at the minute depending on were you buy it.
Overall its a fun, easy to play little game.
I LOVE this game. If you enjoy time management games, then this really is one of the best. It is set in a farmyard and you have to complete tasks that are set for you at the begining of each level. Cash is awarded on completion of a level, which is used to buy things to upgrade your farm.
At the start, the goals are quite simple and quite easy to complete once you get the hang of the game. You have to do things such as fill the well with water, so that you can plant grass for your animals to eat, as well as collect and process the products in your plants to make other products, then you need to take them to the market to sell. There are also bears that need catching and storing or they will kill your animals or destroy your processing plants.
This game is highly addictive, as are the other ones in the series that have been more recently released. You can download a demo version of it of various different game sites, that allows you an hours play before you decide whether on not you wish to purchase it. If you download the demo version, you can upgrade to the full version by paying for it, its not much, but can vary between the different sites. Once downloaded, I'm sure that you will want to upgrade to the full version!!!
Happy Gaming. xxx
Farm Frenzy is an arcade game where you are in control of a farm. The aim of the game is to complete each level by completing the tasks set to you at the beginning of each level. These tasks start off relatively easy such as make 300 gold pieces for example, but as the levels progress, the goals get more difficult and you will have to juggle many tasks to complete the level.
The basic idea of Farm Frenzy starts with a small farm yard. There is a well which you have to fill with water, and a goose which you have to feed in order for it to lay an egg. Geese will lay eggs when they have plenty to eat. Grass will grow on the ground for the geese to eat providing you have water in the well for the grass to grow. Water will be in the well providing you have money to fill the well.
The whole game follows a series of events as you will see from the above, and it's down to your mouse clicking skills to get the most from your farmyard to make the money.
A wagon is placed at the bottom of the screen next to your storage area. When you have collected eggs you can then sell them at market by making the wagon take the produce. When the wagon returns your gold balance increases by the amount you have sent to market.
The game starts off easily with geese before progressing onto more than one animal at a time. This is where you need to start juggling items to get goals completed.
Upgrades become available by this point to make your life a bit easier, and to increase the amount you can sell your produce for. Beware though these upgrades are going to cost you money so you'll need to work hard first before you reap the benefits.
You will find yourself making all sorts of produce before long including material, cheese, milk and lots more.
At the end of each level you have the chance to visit the shop to buy extras to help you throughout the game. This can be in the form of new buildings etc. I often found I hadn't earnt enough gold to be able to buy what I needed and realised I often wasted it on the first thing I could afford. This never really helped me throughout the game.
The beginning of each level a map screen appears and shows where you are in the game. There are 45 levels to this game so be prepared to be playing it for sometimes if you want to actually get to the end.
You have the chance to replay old levels which is a good idea especially if you didn't do so well the first time around.
The game comes across very cute and when you're an adult playing it you begin to question yourself. I started playing it because I downloaded the 60 minutes free trial from the internet, but I liked it enough to pay the full £10 for it. I did consider my daughter when buying this one though as I knew she would like it.
I think it is directed more towards a child when you look at the cartoon style animals and bright colours, but it's geared for adult playing when you have to complete more and more throughout the game. A child could easily get lost with it all.
Overall I thought this game started well, but then it went through a repetitive stage after a few levels. By the time it got difficult and I found myself getting frustrated with it, I began to wish I had never bought it.
I found the concept of the game fairly exciting as I like the sort of games that require me to achieve certain tasks, and it also boasted simple controls, with just clicks of your mouse in the right areas to control everything.
Farm Frenzy is suitable for windows 2000/xp/vista and needs 256mb ram. It's not suitable for macs.
If this game appeals I would recommend the free trail before you spend money on it.
This is a PC game that rocan download form Arcade Games and many other places. It costs somewhere between £6 and £20 depending on where and how you buy it. You can also download a free 60 minute trial to see for yourself if you like it enough to pay for it.
Basically the point of the game is to meet the objectives set at each level - there are dozens of levels.
You are running a farm and you have to do things like milk the cow, churn the milk to make butter and turn the butter into cream in the dairy. You can buy animals and sell your produce, but watch out for the bears who pop up from time to time and eat your animals. Luckily you have a cage to catch a bear.
As you accumulate money you can buy various upgrades to make your life easier, like a larger storage yard, a faster van to take things to market, better irrigation for your grass etc.
The graphics are cartoonish and cute, and when the buildings are in use, making cakes, weaving wool skeins or churning butter, they kind of shake which is quite sweet.
This is an absorbing game, with loads of different levels. You can play each level as many times as you like, and depending on how quickly you meet the goals set, you are awarded either a gold or a silver star, or just a tick. So the temptation to play lots of times is there to try and get every level at gold.
You get awards when achieve certain extras like killing so many bears, or geting every type of goods in your storage yard at once. You can buy upgrades in between levels, with the bonus money you win for completing each level in time.
Most of the things you do are done with mouse clicks, and though it is a bit intense clicking to catch the bear, it's not too bad the rest of the time - not one that should give you RSI then.
I tried the 60 minute trial, and liked it enough to buy it on a package where it cost me effectively £6.50 because I bought a bundle from Arcade Town. It is probably not something I would play for years, but I played it a lot for a couple of weeks, then again a couple of months later.
Overall, it's an entertaining, engaging game which requires a bit of strategy and is not dependent on mouse clicking skill. Cute graphics and a nice storyline mean this game was one of the best downloads I've come across. I often play the 60 free and then don't bother again, but this one had more play value than that and I feel I got value for money for my £7.
If you thought life in the big city was crazy, wait until you get a load of the country life in Farm Frenzy! Daily chores have never been more entertaining as you cultivate your fields, feed your animals and gather the items they produce. You can spend the money you earn on upgrading your farm! Offering plenty of finger-clicking action, just enough strategy to keep things interesting and an amusing cast of characters, Farm Frenzy is a game the whole family can enjoy!
