  • Summary: It's a little too slow-paced. The gameplay would have been much more enjoyable if the game doesn't stop working in the background when i switch to another window.

  • Summary: I actually enjoyed the gameplay, but not being able to play in full-screen mode was a deal-breaker for me. I play all my games full-screen!

  • Summary: I too loved this game. It was kind of refreshing not to have to keep plants watered or tended once you planted them, and no need to ward off pesty pests either. It was nice to sit back and manage the farm. It's not the greatest farm game ever (Farm Mania was ten times better as a full game venture) but hey; I bought it and am loving it. I do agree that the speed is an issue, and the vagueness of how to score higher/get it done quicker is annoying.

  • Summary: I enjoy games like this, yes it may be a little slow, but that's ok with me sometimes you just need to sit back & things at a slower pace.

  • Summary: I hated this game. It's so slow, they should have called it 'Death by Boredom.' If anything, the Gamezebo review was generous.

  • Summary: A very good farming game, that has his challenge in the mixture of management and working. It goes much deeper, than it shows on the first view. I liked the possibility of specifying the workers by beeing able to let them do all, if necessary.

  • Summary: I agree with Medbie. I don't fully agree with the "official" gamezebo review either. This game is really under-rated. i spend most of my life in the city, and it's games like this where i can be free and at leisure. And I love fudge!

  • Summary: A relaxing farm game with a nice easy pace. Kind of like Lost Villagers gradually grows and builds up, except your farmers can't die!

  • Summary: I generally agree with the "official" Gamezebo review, but I have to differ this time. This was a fun, interesting, anything but tedious farming game. The time management + Sim aspect made it very playable and having more definite, set goals made me prefer it to Alice Greenfingers. Overall, a fine game.

  • Summary: Didn't have any trouble planting berries or any other part of the game. Took a bit of work to get the factory buildings working, but it's a pretty decent farming game with some nice music and art.
