This is the HOG you've been searching for I came back to Big Fish in search of my ideal HO game, and I do believe I have found it in Farmington Tales. Don't let the lackluster name fool you, this game has been very well thought out and put together. The story isn't thrilling, but it's a farming HOG, what do you expect? The story is sweet, and the dialogues are very amusing. I often find myself snickering at the exchanges between characters. The graphics are very well done, much better than I expected when I looked at the previews. I like the artistry in the beginning. The story scenes are very well done. The HO scenes are beautiful. The objects aren't overly difficult to find, but there is an added bonus to find hidden "gems" in each scene, and they can sometimes be very challenging to spot. You do end up re-playing scenes, but objects are in different places, and different objects appear each time. There are enough different scenes to chose from that you don't get burnt out on any one scene. The mini-games are a lot of fun and some of them have been very difficult for me to complete. Thank goodness there is a buy-out option. The farming aspect of the game is kinda fun too - sort of like farmville on speed (once you do a of of expanding). Don't worry though, it is not tedious like farmville. The music in the farming part of the game is a little annoying, but the music for the HO scenes is quite nice and relaxing. This one is going to take me quite some time to complete, which makes me happy and, I think, I will probably play this one over again. Can't say that about any other HOGs I've tried so far. Over all it is a sweet and fun game that is well worth the money and is a lot of fun. A nice change from the dark, dreary, supernatural fare that is so prevalent in these games. It will definitely make you smile. July 28, 2013
One of my all time favorites! This is an excellent game, a lot of fun, and it has great length, so you get a lot for your money. It is up to you to go as far and as fast as you like. I have played it through 3 times now, and still enjoy it very much. The HO scenes are fun, and not terribly complicated and very bright and colorful. Any seniors out there wanting a fun game, this is the one for you. I do not like all the scary, dark, eerie horror games so I try not to ever buy them. This one is upbeat, but you do have to pay attention, and I think the mini games, at least some of them, are way too hard. If you make money, playing the ho scenes, you can buy your way out of playing them, that is what I did. This game just goes on and on, and you don't want it to end. Thanks Playrix, you did a great job! July 20, 2013
An All-Around Knockout. In Farmington Tales, you're helping an old man farmer who is trying to get money together to improve his farm and help pay some hospital bills (oh America, when will you learn about healthcare?). It's a straightforward HO game with a real twist: in between HO scenes, you plant crops, water them, and harvest them, and also raise animals for milk, eggs, and wool. As you raise money you can purchase not only building improvements but also farm and animal improvements (like bigger feed troughs and better fertilizer). Also, you get "quests" to complete that involve finding specific objects requested by various characters, such as "three lightbulbs" or "a mannequin," which will be found in the screens. Every few screens, you do a mini-game like Minesweeper to continue, but you can buy your way out of every one of them, so if you dislike such games, you can easily skip them. So really, there's a lot going on in this game. The HO screens can be difficult to navigate as some things are not drawn very clearly, but overall you find that the things in them are what you kind of expect to be there without too much anachronism. The quest objects might or might not be in the list of 15 objects you are supposed to find in each scene--I found it was easiest if I just wrote them down and checked each scene for them all. But the farm includes about a dozen different settings for the HO screens and you're not forced to go to locations you dislike or find especially annoying. Each screen also includes three "gems" which can be just about any shape or size that give you additional money. One way that this HO makes its approach particularly fresh is that in each screen you get "stretch goals" like "find 5 objects in alphabetical order" or "find 3 objects in order from lowest to highest on the screen." These are incredibly fun and add a real challenge to the screens, but they're also totally optional so you can do them or not as you please (some are incredibly difficult for me). The quests are simply adorable. Their names often reference popular culture (one is called "How I Bet Your Mother" and another is "I Am An Evil Giraffe") in sly referential ways. Even after "beating" the game, I find myself returning to do the quests--they're a bit addictive. The farming aspect of the game is amazing to me. After you get done with an HO screen, you get returned to your farm, where things that need doing alert you with icons you just click to get taken there. That was a really nice touch that made playing this game much easier. I'm super-impressed and recommend this game for people who like HOs that let them improve properties and do other stuff like farming and animal husbandry. If someone prefers more "adventure" or darker aspects to their HO gaming, this might not be the game for them, but people who prefer lighter, more casual gaming and don't like adventure will really like this one. Farmington Tales really is one of the best of its genre. June 15, 2013
farmington tales I found this kind of combination management and hidden object quite refreshing and relaxing, helps to unwind one, as some of the hidden object games are a little sinister for an older player hope we have more of this kind jacqui May 31, 2013
Great game that works with a touch screen I've played the game through twice in the past week and thoroughly enjoyed it. Don't be put off by the hokey dialog or the Farmville-style farming - you can skip both and just play the hidden object scenes. I played the full game one time, then just repeated the HOG scenes the second time. Positives for this game include: -Wonderful artwork. The scenes are beautiful. -It works with a touch screen!!! -Extra HO challenges are great (for example, "find 3 objects in alphabetical order") -Objects are generally correctly scaled in size. -There are enough objects in each scene that you'll be searching for new objects the next time you visit it. -I enjoyed most of the puzzles as a nice change from HOG scenes. -Ability to skip puzzles if you don't like them. -A positive storyline - no murders, ghosts, nightmares, undead pirates, etc. Negatives (and there are very few) include: -Gems are often too small and don't look like gems, making them hard to find. -After each HO scene, "Manny" appears to tally up your score. He's annoying & can take 3 clicks to get rid of. -A few objects are very hard to find, even for an experienced HOG player. -The sound of the cash register dinging is very annoying. Advice: -If you plant crops & raise animals, use the upgrades to increase the water, feed, etc. You'll get the points you need faster. -Turn off the music & keep the ambient sounds, which are mostly animal sounds from cows to birds to frogs. These vary from scene to scene, a nice touch. -If you play all the way through, be sure to read what happens to the characters after the end of the story - very funny. May 5, 2013

A Delightful Game! Original games are few and far between, and this is one. It is really enjoyable. Don't let it get away. :) October 9, 2012
Laid Back Country Style = Fun...Fun...Fun This review is based on the one hour demo. The other reviews gave great details about the game play, so I will just add that this game is a refreshing change from all the dark-gloomy HOG's of late. It offers a very nice mix of HO's, farm management and cute puzzles to keep things from getting tedious. The only thing I didn't like was how small the gems are, but I guess that's why they are a bonus. I will purchase the game now even though I won't get the bonus punch using a free game coupon, but it's worth it. If you're looking for a relaxing change of pace this is it! Enjoy Fish Friends!

New twist on HOGs Really nice game. I am enjoying it tremendously. The story centers around a farmer who mortgaged his farm in order to pay for medical treatment for his wife. He needs to raise money to pay the loan off or he will lose his farm. Money can be earned during the hidden object portion of the game, various puzzles, selling crops that the player grows and winning a "best farm" contest. Neither the puzzles or the hidden objects are difficult to complete but add just enough challenge to keep the game interesting and fun. October 9, 2012
