Farmington Tales 2: Winter Crop
Good Farm / Sim Game with winter-theme.
Remember playing Farmington Tales ?Well the story still continue with Kaylee that take over Floyd's Farm because he is on Vacation with his wife after get money.After that, Kaylee don't know how to farming and everything is ruin because of snow and Harry! Then, She send message to Floyd to teach how to farming.
well its same from the original, play Hidden Objects and plant vegetables.After finish play HO, there will puzzle to play.There are lot of puzzles like Pokitaire (combination of poker and solitaire) and find farm animals. There are also collectibles gems to find in HOS and will unlock new HO scenes. you need to find 3 gems in one HOS. There 14 HO scenes.All The item you found in HOS will be sell in the market and also your farm's produce. There quest which is you have to find them in HOS and get money reward.There are so many upgrades in Shop like upgrade your barn and upgrade your selling skills and more.All upgrades are not just beautify your farm but also functioning.Plus there few task in HOS like collect 3 items in 3 sec. and you get money if you achieve it!
Music,VO and Visual.
There full VO in the game and are great!
The visual are clear and crisp but not colorful enough.
Honestly I don't like farm music in this game and Sound effect just perfect.
In Option you can adjust volume for music and sound effects,toggle cursor (there 3 different cursors),toggle full screen,toggle snowfall ( special effects) and there are more after you upgrade your farm like gems will sparkling in HOS.
well this developer always add bonus to their games and in this game they offer wallpapers and replayable puzzles.Plus, dozens of Trophies to get!!! GREAT!!
Lastly,the game is good but after a few of levels I get bored and yawning because lack of color , characters conversation, and same puzzles. But it was worth a try !
The best game from this devs is Chronicle of Albian 2 !

I love these games
I have the whole set of this type of farm game. I just love them. I just wish some of the items would be larger (I play on laptop) since my eye site isn't that great and the laptop makes everything smaller.

it's a little bit of both
it's a little bit of both games that big fish is famous for time management and hidden. It's ok not to bad if you don't mind waiting for some of the people get done with the planting before you can move on to the next step. no story just pictures to watch

I need help!
I am quite a ways into the game and my crops are no longer growing. the prompts to water them keeps coming up, but it will show that I have between 1-59 minutes left and then when times runs out it just resets to 59 minutes. the plots are bare..nothing is showing, yet it keeps prompting me to water them. same with the animals...it keeps showing there is a countdown to when they will produce, but it never comes..just keeps resetting to 59 minutes. and I never get prompts to feed them anymore. it has been this way for 2 days and I just keep playing the search games and waiting to see if anything grows or the animals produce and they never do. help anyone?

Loved the first Farmington
I didn't bother with the trial version I just bought this one. Mistake! I am disappointed. The mini games are ok. I am still working on finishing but it isnt my first priority

Farmington Tales One is Better
I purchased this game as I very much enjoyed Farmingtale One
Big waste of money as far as I am concerned. If you own One I wouldn't waste money on Two. It is the same as one in everyway except they made it a Winter scene for I am sure the Christmas season. The storyline is just stupid. Puzzles are the same, the HO's are the same, even the scenes used are the same. Boring.

I found this game VERY dull....

Unfortunately, I found the graphics and gameplay boring and rather plain. I guess I just prefer games with a lot of color and eye-catching popping graphics. I felt like I was really cleaning someone's barn. I'll pass on FT2.

IF YOU HAVE A MAC DO NOT BUY THIS GAME
I bought both Farmington Tales 1 and 2.
The only glitch FT1 had was that the game crashed when you tried to harvest peppers.
I thought FT2 would have no problem, but actually it is worse!
The game crashes at various points with no obvious connection (during a puzzle, when upgrading a building or just when you finish a HOS).
I tried reinstalling as well as playing with different settings and/or profile but it just does not work.
I played on a Mac with Mavericks and on one with Mountain Lion but made no difference.
It's just a waste of money and a lot of frustration.

One very very fatal flaw
The plants mature too quickly.
I got this game because I actually really enjoyed the first one. It was just the right mix of engaging and relaxing. I generally find non-adventure HOGs boring, but Farmington 1 was an exception. I really liked the mix of farming TM game elements and HO. It was unique.
When I first started playing, I was excited because it seemed like they had made a few improvements and added upgrades that would make it even more fun. I also liked the colorful blue tones of winter dahlia farm. But it quickly became obvious that the devs had made the time various plants take to mature much shorter. There is no need for the HO scenes to make money. There is no need for the mini games for fun while you wait. I was done with the game in a couple of hours. By contrast, The first game lasted almost a week.
All the upgrades and tweeks that I would have welcomed in 1 made this, a game that was already too easy, even easier. While I found the new minigames like polkatair potentially interesting, I only got to play the easiest levels before I was done with the game.
The game was not exactly awful in any other respect, except that the story was silly, but this one flaw ruined it completely. Save your money. Try farm tribe instead (link at right).
