Youda Farmer 3: Seasons
Tough TM game
As with all Youda games, this is a complex and challenging time management game. You own a farm, and you must complete orders to finish a level. There are different places that produce items (like eggs, wheat, meat, etc.) and different places you drop off either the items themselves or a combo (like bacon & eggs).
The difficulty for me comes because you're never zoomed out on the map. You are always looking at one of the places (like the mill or the chicken coop), and you can only access each one by clicking on products, which spawn randomly. The drop-off places are always along the top, so you can go there, but if there's a product you're waiting for, you have to wait until it spawns. My basic issue with it is that it doesn't flow--I don't feel like I can queue things as far in advance as I like to, and each shopkeeper ordering something can order a number of things, so I get confused as to what is going to whom.
The other problem I have is that when you complete the level in gold time, you get one upgrade; when you complete the level in silver time, you get two upgrades; and when you complete the level in bronze time, you get three upgrades. It makes no sense. At times, if there's not a lot of time left, I find myself waiting for the clock to run out so I can get an extra upgrade.
A few levels into the game, you get the ability to drop off orders at a hotel. The people in the hotel are demanding, and if you don't drop everything at once to start their order, you are almost guaranteed not to meet the time constraint. I pretty much abandoned that, instead focusing on the overall goals that are given at the beginning of the level, and I get gold much more consistently now.
It's not a terrible game. I actually bought it. But I've tried to play it through several times and never got very far. Each time, I restart, thinking that perhaps this time, I'll get into it. This particular time, I've gotten farther, which I think is due to abandoning the idea of serving the hotel people.
I would suggest doing the trial to see what you think of it before purchasing it.

It's not fun
As with all Youda games, this is a complex and challenging time management game. You own a farm, and you must complete orders to finish a level.
The difficulty for me comes because you're never undestant what you must do. The game has not an order of action. is all very disorganized
