Very challenging farm game!
I am a huge fan of all the farm TM games on BFG and this one is no different. Actually this one is the one I keep coming back to time and time again but not because I love it that much, I do though, but because it is that difficult.
There was a few levels near the end that put every single one of my (very important to real life LOL) skills to good use. I think the reason I find it so hard, unlike most other farm games which I have mastered, is that it requires scrolling around off screen for some things and I keep forgetting about certain things. Other reasons is that to get eggs from a chicken you need to time it right or you get pecked - something that wasted valuable seconds in the game!
Overall this is a great game though which provided many hours of great fun!!

Great TM Game!
5 stars for the graphics, storyline, and style! I really like this game since you can play in either relaxed or timed mode and complete the challenges for each round. As each level progresses, you need to build on what you've done so far plus work on something new. Though you are doing various things within each level, it's not an impossible rush to get things done. There are minigames periodically to give you a rest from growing and selling crops and animals. Trophies are awarded at various phases; you can even work on getting all the trophies by playing under the same player name. I highly recommend this game!

I'm not a fan of most TM games as I'm not a fan of adding stress in my life ;) - however, this one gives you a relaxed mode you can choose where you don't have to beat the clock to play and enjoy the game.
I don't know what it's like playing against the clock, but in the relaxed mode at least, the animals won't die if you don't tend them immediately, etc. The only thing you can lose is ice-cream, which will melt if you don't pick it up in time.... (makes sense to me! ;)
In fact, it's actually helpful that the animals don't produce an item until you tend them - and, except for peacock feathers (which did disappear on me eventually), you can leave the produce there without losing it. Therefore, you can have it ready and pick it up only when you need it. Also, you can retend the animals/machines while produce is waiting to be picked up so that they immediately begin producing the next batch when you DO use the items.
As an example, leave the peacocks wanting water until you need a feather -- they won't die of thirst. :) Also, I found it helpful to load the ice cream machine with milk only, and leave the strawberries until I was ready to use the ice cream, so it wouldn't melt on me. The other machines can be fully loaded with needed items ahead of time.
I liked that you can auction off your unused produce and make a lot of money - just be sure to only pick the greed bids. (Dark green gives you the most money.) So if you have the time, go ahead and make unneeded items... Also liked that the game doesn't really end -- you can continue playing after you've completed the main levels....

Fantastic Farming Fun!
The graphics are adorable. The upgrades and farming are so fun. And there is voice acting in the story. And it lets you have the relaxed mode from the start if you don't feel like being timed.

Can be played just for fun!
I've tried a great deal of farm TM games and even though I manage quite well at first I do become stressed after a while. Usually half an hour after trial hour is over and I've bought it:))
This one has all the features of the best farm TM games AND you can play it in relaxed untimed mood! Such a joy!

Fantastic Farm lives up to its name - Fantastic!
I love time management games, but usually I get to a level where I get bored, or some element becomes too aggressive and the fun gets squeezed out a bit. I then quit and move on. But with this game, not only was each level a bit more challenging, but I looked forward to seeing what was being added next.
I am grateful that there is a relaxed mode. This is what I used for my trial hour. Now that I have the hang of it, and I've bought it, I am going to do the timed version.
The farm itself is cute, and so are the plants, tools and especially animals that you get to work with. There are chapters and the cartoons with voice tell the unfolding story.
Something different I noticed in this game. For those familiar with the card game "Free Cell", you know when the four slots are filled with extra cards and you can't make any moves? This has that element infused into the regular game play. You won't notice it on the earlier levels, but as things start to get very busy, you'll need to do something and you can't until you clear a spot. It is a genius addition and yet another thing that sets this game apart. =)

A Great Find!
I've been a little cranky with BigFish, because they haven't been releasing a whole lot of TM games...and boom, here comes this one--I was thrilled. Downloaded it, and before my 60 minute trial was up, I purchased it. It is very easy to learn, runs at a medium place, and CAN be tedious, but not very often. The story line is a little goofy, but hey...we can all use a little goofy from time to time. thanks, Big Fish, for feeding my TM habit. About darned time! Not everyone likes those ridiculous hidden object games, you know....

Yet another fun farm TM game
When this came out as the daily special i played it for awhile and went to buy it and discovered i had already purchased it. Maybe it was when i had a lot of games to play so i had forgotten. So if you haven't bought it and you like this type of game I recommend it.
