Big Farm is a resource management game. You inherit a small farm that includes a small plot of land, a few seeds, and some chickens. Wisely manage your farm and help it grow into a profitable business.
This farm game is relaxing, fun, and sometimes challenging. If you like this game, you might also enjoy Goodgame Empire, which is a free-to-play medieval castle building and conquest game.
HOW TO PLAY. It's easy to get started with the Big Farm game. The online tutorial walks you through the steps needed to get your farm up and running.
In-game purchases are offered, but these are optional. To test this, I created my own account. My farmer BuffaloPete has made it to Level 9 so far without buying any upgrades with real money. As far as I can tell, this game truly is free-to-play.
HOW TO REGISTER: It's easy. If you've never played Big Farm before, the first step is to create a free account.
To create an account, open the Big Farm game screen (displays in a new window). In the center of the screen, enter a name for your farmer, enter your email address, and create an account password.
Then click the Play button to start playing! It's that simple.
Note: Choose your farmer's name carefully. It's free to give him or her a name, but it'll cost you some gold later if you want to change it.
To make progress in this Big Farm game online, click the tasks displayed along the left side of the game. The tasks explain what you should do next to build up your farm.
For example, when it's time to clear more land for crops, a task for that displays in the list. Or, if it's time to plant an apple orchard, you'll see an associated task in the list.
Here's the scenario: You start with a small farm you've inherited from Farmer George. The farm includes a few basic resources such as farmhouse, chicken coop, a field for planting crops, and a couple farm workers. It's your job to expand the farm and make it profitable.
The Big Farm game online includes many realistic aspects of farm life. For example, if you want to raise chickens for eggs to sell, you'll need to plant corn to feed the chickens.
If you want fertilizer, build a composter to turn leaves into humus. There are many real-life farm processes to set up and manage.
In the beginning, this farm game is single player. After Level 6, however, you can join a farm cooperative ("co-op") with other real players.
By joining a co-op, you can work together with other players around the world to grow your farms.
The economy of the farm is measured in game dollars. For example, when you sell eggs laid by your chickens, you receive virtual dollars.
By Level 9, my farmer BuffaloPete had about $15,000 saved. Use the game money to select upgrades for your farm, including buildings, farm equipment, or more crop land.
In-game purchases of special or upgraded items are measured in gold coins. You can buy gold coins for this purpose if you wish, but again it is NOT required. You'll also earn a small amount free gold along the way as you play the game.
The large number of activities in this online farm game is impressive. As just a few examples, your farmer can:
Grow crops, such as cabbaage and corn
Raise livestock, such as chickens, pigs, cows, donkeys, and goats
Hire farm workers, and build homes for them to live in
Plant orchards (like apples) and sell the fruit
Adopt a farm dog that runs around the property; don't forget to feed him!
Construct farm buildings, such as barns, silos, windmills, chicken coops, and pigstys that serve valuable functions; for instance, use the windmill to grind corn to make chicken feed
Mine precious stones and gold on your property
Complete special missions for rewards; for example, collect the most corn in a given amount of time
Some online brain games are stressful, but this Big Farm game online is not. You do need to make plans, stay alert, and concentrate, but it's rather relaxing and fun to watch your farm grow.
Anyone who enjoys the idea of using care and skill to run a successful farm should like this game.
