It’s about time for another casual game review. This time, it is a game with an agricultural theme. Not everyone has been to a farm, especially these days, but I suppose most everyone has had a hankering for a rural lifestyle. Well, at least, if a real life experience is not possible, a virtual one would do.
That is what Farmer Jane has to offer – a chance to manage a farm (or several farms, to be exact). The storyline isn’t that original, to be honest. Grandpa has problems with his farm, Jane and her brother (Joe, I think) help out and get suckered into working in other farms. The graphics are quite good, actually. Though there isn’t much by way of animation, the 3D graphics are pleasant enough to view.
As for the game play, it starts out easy enough, which is a good thing for newbies. Seasoned “rush” and “frenzy” players might find the beginning levels a bit too easy, though. However, I would have to say that the escalation of the difficulty is quite interesting. The game still has some surprises for those who have been playing these types of games for quite some time. As a matter of fact, I got stuck in January of the 5th farm.
The trick is to click real fast and to come up with a strategy that will allow for the maximum combos while keeping the customers happy all at the same time – which is basically what we do for these kinds of games.
I’d say give Farmer Jane a try.
