Farming. The world elicits images of big tractors, the beating sun and sweaty vegetable pickers hauling baskets of yummy produce to market. Farming is tough work, and those with any experience in the field know that, in some cases, an air-conditioned paper-pushing job sitting behind a computer is much more comfortable.
However, the lure of growing a field of turnips or cultivating the perfect flower is embedded deep in some souls, yearning to get out from amid the smoggy bus-rides, cramped airplane flights and unbearable long-distance road trips. Well, SuperCell has released the next best thing to really farming — virtual farming on mobile with Hay Day.
You may ask, “Hay Day on mobile?” Well, the first Hay Day game might not have been a blockbuster seller, but those who got hooked on creating their own little plot of goodness in a wasteland left by a deceased relative have a lot to be excited about in this to the Android and iOS smartphone and tablet users — and those new to the title are simply missing out.
Hay Day hack is has similarities to the previous other farming simulation games tools, which have been around for years with a nearly underground fan club. In all of the games, players take on the role of a newly made farmer, who must take the land left to him by a deceased relative and turn a rocky, barren landscape into a thriving farm, complete with farm animals.
This game will contain several new tools for use on the fields and with the animals, and a new inventory system will let players carry around four tools at once (as opposed to the first game’s two tool limit). Additionally, new animals will be added to the game, and new minigames promise to add plenty of replay value.
Players can cultivate their own garden using a variety of flowers and herbs, and even the town has been expanded to let players walk around talking to the inhabitants, rather than just jumping from place to place as like in the first game.
You might think we’re making too big a deal about a game that makes you water, weed and hoe plots of land, or even go out and feed cows, brush horses and collect eggs from chickens. But if you haven’t tried it, don’t scoff — few things are as rewarding as creating a thriving farm that will last generations. We can look forward to starting our farm with Hay Day.
