Farm Frenzy 2 - Strategical Farming As It Is
Alawar Games together with Melesta have released a continuation for their genuinely successful strategy game Farm Frenzy. In Farm Frenzy 2 you'll again meet the task of making all types of agricultural products and earning money, as well as all the fun of the game.
Eggs or chicken? What was the first?
You will learn that at your farm, as well as other essential issues of creating delicious products, selling them and becoming rich, of course. The game offers not much of a story. Actually, there is no story at all, you just have your own farm to develop and some resources to do this. But the game needs no story, for the game play itself is so engaging that you want nothing more.
So, let's dwell on the game process, as this is the main advantage of Farm Frenzy 2. At the very beginning you have a couple of chicken, a well and a plot of land. And nothing more is necessary for completing the goal for the first level. Actually, each level offers you a certain set of resources and a certain goal to achieve. The goals may be different, but they mainly presents tasks as collecting or making a set amount of some products, having a particular number of some animals or earning a certain sum of money. And at each level you are granted enough resources to complete it once you use them wisely and apply your strategic thinking. For each level you are given a time limit. Make it in time and get a bonus useful for buying upgrades!
You start with chicken. chicken eat grass, and to grow grass you need to water the land. Your well has limited capacity, so be sure to replenish it beforehand, otherwise your animals will die of hunger while you'll be filling the well. Chicken will give you eggs, which can be later sold or processed into powder. Powdered eggs are used for cooking buns once you build a bakery. After your products are ready you should take them to the warehouse within a limited time, otherwise you lose them. When in warehouse your products can be taken to the city and sold in the market. Actually, it's the only way to get money for you, and your truck has limited capacity also, so be sure to sell and make the most expensive products first - this will give you more money and more opportunities accordingly.
Before starting a new level you will have to go to the store and purchase upgrades - plans for new buildings and better qualities of your existing resources. But this is just an opportunity to get the upgrade - during the game you will still have to buy it again each time. You will also have a possibility to acquire new animals, and not only chicken or pigs, but also cats to gather your products and dogs to chase away bears.
Bears are a great feature that might seem an obstacle at first, but it is really a great help if you handle it properly, especially in the earlier levels. When a bear comes to your farm, it starts tearing everything down, killing your animals etc. And if you don't react, this can ruin your performance totally. But if you are fast enough you can catch the bear and sell it in the market, which is sometimes really what you need at the moment.
I could tell you a lot more about the particularities of the game, but there is no need. You'll see everything by yourself. I'll just mention the great visuals and sounds of the game, as well as 17 secret gags to find.
