Before there was Farmville, there was SimFarm, which basically does everything Farmville does, only better - you are on a farm and have to do all that farmers do (fortunately, not getting up before dawn!), grow crops, buy pesticides, breed animals and sell them (there is a a very similar game with towers, SimTower
). You start the game literally from nothing, just a big field on which you have to build your farm. It is only up to you how big of a farm do you want. And if you thought farming is easy, apparently you've never been on one. There are a bunch of things to take care of, other than regular farming, you have to be careful of droughts, pests, even tornadoes. The game takes all the details into consideration - weather conditions and also air and earth temperature. The gameplay is simpe - if you've ever used MS Paint, you'll recognize the familiar user panel. The graphics are pretty simple, too, but doesn't take the least bit out of enjoyment of the game. The game is not easy, no sir, but it is very fun and very interesting and extremely challenging. The game's soundtrack is also very cool, with awesome sounds effects, down to the pigs oinking. I say this game is great and very well worth checking out, especially if you like sim like games.
