Experience the life of a farmer without all the mess. Idle Farming Tycoon 3D allows players to build a successful farm by upgrading speed, farmers, and water to increase production. Hall of Play delivers you a game full of interesting upgrades and special perks…and ads. One dimensional gameplay gets boring without much to do besides watching your little farmers carry buckets of water to plots.
Farming for Gold
Idle Farming Tycoon is very simple. You start the game with one plot of land unlocked and one farmer. The farmer gets water from the well and waters one spot on the plot. It takes three at least buckets to grow one plant for harvest. As your plants are growing, you gain coins that you can use to upgrade. Harvesting your crops earns you special currency used to purchase more plots of land. You can upgrade to get more farmers, increase speed, and profit. This is a very straight-to-the-point game with no other special features that aren’t directly related to your crops. It’s easy for any player but lacks any features that break the monotony of the gameplay.
As you take care of your farm, you level up. Each level grants you coins. You have three options. Take the coins earned, use special currency to get three times more, or watch an ad to get five times more. A tip: watch the ad. If you take the coins you earned, you will most likely end up watching an ad anyway. Might as well get the additional coins.
Ads are frequent in this title and sometimes pop up randomly as you play. There are also a few special perks you can apply to your farm for a certain duration. These are earned from watching ads. Occasionally, two ads play in a row. This can get very annoying since there are quite a few ads that are thirty seconds long.
Idle Farming Tycoon has minimalistic graphics. It’s not that exciting to look at, but there are a few details that make the style charming. Trees have a unique hexagonal shape, and some have little red apples to enhance the shape. The well contains a waterwheel that changes design when you upgrade it. Some of the plants are 3D while some are flat with no definition at all. The music gets repetitive after a while but does have a nice folk music feel that matches the game well.
Idle Farming Tycoon isn’t the worst game ever, but it’s also not the best. For a free game, it can be a fun way to waste some time. However, the ads are overwhelmingly frequent and sometimes too long. The simple graphics aren’t bad, but the simplicity of the gameplay is. Idle games are usually very straightforward. This title’s lack of features to break up the repetitiveness makes the time you spend playing feel a lot longer. More interaction while playing would improve this. In the end, you might find more enjoyment on an actual farm.
Idle Farming Tycoon fails to satisfy with repetitive gameplay that lacks any real interaction besides upgrading. The overabundance of ads ruins any other enjoyment you might get from this title.
