Summary: By way of background, I'm not a heavy-duty HM fan. I've played and enjoyed the Rune Factory games for DS but stalled out quickly on Harvest Moon DS and haven't tried any of the others in the series, nor have I played on any other platform. Overall, I'm enjoying this game a lot. It's a puzzle game based loosely on the crop-growing activity in regular HM games. A sprite moves through a field harvesting ripe crops and watering adjacent crops.
Summary: its a good game to pass time. however its not like other harvest moon games. all you do in this one is harvest a bunch of crops to clear the island. its the same island from the island of happiness game, but for some reason all the crops are growing like crazy and all over the island. its basically a matching/harvesting game.
