There are a lot of very famous applications found in most social networking sites such as facebook. You have the very famous mafia-style game applications such as mobsters, mafia wars, and mafia. And of course, there are probably hundreds or thousands of other applications you can play. Among them is Farmville. A game application where, you guessed it, create and manage your own farm.
At first, I was skeptical about the game since it isn’t the usual action/fighting game that you see. But as I’ve seen a lot of my friends play Farmville, well I said to myself that it probably wouldn’t hurt to try playing it. So I did and I never expected that it would be such a great game.
In Farmville, you plant trees and plants and you can harvest from them. Of course, it takes time and it depends on what type of seed or tree you planted. Some may take only a few hours before you can harvest them and some could take a couple of days. You earn coins upon harvesting and you can use them to buy new seeds and trees. You can also take care of different animals and collect from them such as milk from cows and eggs from chickens. The only difference is that once you harvest a plant, you need to buy new seeds. Unlike, of course, animals and trees, after you collect from them, you just have to wait then collect from them again after a few days or so.
Aside from collecting money, another really good aspect of this game is you have full control over your farm. You can place buildings and several decorations in your farm. Place a barn, a cottage, or some fences. It’s actually one of the most fun elements of this game. You can even increase the size of your farm to accommodate more.
You can also have neighbors who can help you clean up your farm and you can also send gifts to each other. It’s really nice to see your friends’ farm and how they designed theirs. It’s another fun way of electronically spending time with them. You can even leave messages on sign posts and place them on their farm.
There are also medals that could be awarded to you by meeting certain conditions such as harvesting a set number of unique plants, collecting from a number of animals, having a certain number of neighbors, and even a number of unique farm screenshots. It’s really challenging at some point but most of them do take time to accomplish.
As with a lot of game applications, there is an option to buy Farmville cash using real money. You can buy much more lavish buildings and decorations. But again, this is totally optional. It’s not that expensive but I find it not really viable.
It’s really fun and it is a good way of spending your time on facebook and myspace. Whatever your goal is; whether to earn lots of coins, design a wonderful farm, or just collect all the medals, I would really recommend this game application. Have fun in your farm!
