Big Farm is Goodgame’s take on the farming simulation genre and does away with energy in favour of reasonable wait times, you’ll also find no pressure to harass your friends through Facebook making the game perfect for the farmer that prefers to play solo.
Your goals in Big Farm are in line with most other games in the genre. You’ll be taking an underdeveloped area of land and slowly transforming it into a thriving farm complete with crops, animals and even buildings. With quests to guide your progress and constant upgrades with each and every level it’s easily to get sucked into managing your farm for hours on end.
In terms of mechanics you’ll recognise most of the game elements if you’ve played a farm management game before. If this is your first time managing a farm though you’ll find the starter quests more than sufficient at bringing you up to speed on the process of growing, harvesting and selling your crops to expand your farms opportunities.
Unlike similar games that stop there though in Big Farm players also have to build and manage various structures. These can either turn basic materials into ones that will fetch a higher price or be required to house certain animals or complete a quest for expansion.
Overall the game is much closer to an economic/city simulator than straight farm management game which will appeal to people that want more control over what they build and optimising for better returns from crops.
If you’ve enjoyed the simple games in this genre like FarmVille but are now seeking something with more depth that you can play by yourself without the need to rely on other players for advancement then Big Farm from Goodgame might be that opportunity.
