iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Lions, tigers and bears – oh my? Think again. In Farm Hero!, a game developed by Red Menace Game Studios, LLC, you’ll have to defend your bountiful farm from the hungry birds and bunnies that will eat all of your crops unless you stop them.
Concept and Functionality:
Farm Hero is a very simple game to learn. Using your finger, you must swipe away at the unwanted pests before they make it to your crops. There are three modes to choose from: normal, no pets and madness.
In normal mode, not only will you have to focus on warding off the birds and bunnies, but you will also have to make sure to not accidentally swipe off the pet puppies and parrots that also run around the farm.
As the game gets progressively quicker, it becomes more and more difficult to distinguish between the good and bad animals.
If this level proves to be too difficult, don’t worry – there’s always the “no pets” level. This level, which is exactly what it sounds like, gets rid of the pets so that all you have to worry about is getting rid of as many bunnies and birds as possible.
Not challenging enough? There’s always the madness level, which starts off in a swiping frenzy.
Though the game can get repetitive, you can never get too bored of it, since there’s always room to improve and increase your high score.
Cute and cartoonish, the characters in Farm Hero are all sorts of adorable. Depending on the direction you fling the animals, these chubby pests and pets will catapult to the left or roll around the right.
For a game like this, the graphics complement the silliness and lighthearted fun of Farm Hero.
However, because Farm Hero is such a basic game, variety is lacking. Despite the different game modes, changing the scenery of Farm Hero –i.e. winter farm or beach farm – could give the game more customization elements.
Introducing new animals might also diversify the game more. In any case, the fact that the game requires no rules helps Farm Hero cater a satisfying user experience for players.
Simple, fun and pretty adorable, Farm Hero is a great game for those who want just want to play something quick and fun. It’s a game that requires little commitment, since every game that is played is new. On the other hand, scores are saved so that you’ll always keep coming back to the game to try and beat your high scores.
While the graphics in Farm Hero aren’t not the most sophisticated, they do not hinder the game whatsoever. And swiping away farm pests make the game much more amusing and easy to use.
This game isn’t terribly hard, but the longer you play the game, the more challenging it becomes.
So get your finger ready to swipe away some animals and protect the innocent corn and carrot crops that need saving!
Farm Hero! requires iOS 5.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
