A new casual game that will keep you busy for a long time. In this Match 3 game you have to work together with your friends to save the farm. You have to collect cropsies, funny little corn like creatures, that come in different designs. You have to match similar looking ones of 3 and more to clear the field and earn points. With limited moves you’ll have a hard time to complete the more than hundred levels.
There are countless renditions of match-3 games in the mobile play store, but I find myself growing bored with all the monotony and predictability with the titles I've tried in the past.
Lately, I've missed playing the puzzle games, so I wanted to see if there were any titles out there that would bring something new to the genre. I ran across a few different apps to try, but Farm Heroes Saga had to be my favorite out of the bunch.
If you have been searching for a breath of fresh air when it comes to playing games in the match-3 category, then head to the play store and download Farm Heroes Saga to start playing!
What initially caught my eye when scrolling through the play store, was the brightly colored and whimsically animated vegetables and other icons. I have grown so tired of seeing the same style of match-3 puzzles in every other game in the genre, so it's refreshing to see shapes other than a square or jewel on the board!
The background of the game is just as stunning as the characters on the puzzle board with rolling countryside hills and roaming livestock on sprawling farmland.
Possibly the most intriguing aspect of Farm Heroes Saga, in my opinion, are the various boss fights that pop up along your puzzle journey. Not only will you have to complete puzzles which increase in difficulty as you move forward through the game, but you will also have to contend with challenging villains like an evil raccoon before you can progress.
The boss fights are some of my favorite puzzles to complete in the game, as you must complete as many matches as you can to diminish the strength of your foe and ultimately defeat him.
I was worried that the boss fights might feel out of place in the game, but the creatures used by the developers to create enemies are ones you might actually contend with on a farm.
When looking for any new game to play, one of the first things I look for is whether or not the game seems like it has worthwhile replay value. If I know that I can probably beat a game in a few hours without having much else to do, then I typically skip over it altogether.
I know that match-3 games typically have a few hundred levels, so I was expecting the same when I downloaded Farm Heroes Saga and was pleasantly surprised to see that there was no end in sight, even after playing for days on end.
What I love most about Farm Heroes Saga is that it steps outside of the box when it comes to match-3 games, almost literally! Most of the games in the market focus on square images like pieces of cake, candy, or toy blocks, so it's always refreshing to find a developer that goes against the grain a bit.
My only complaint with the game would have to be the number of ads that pop up when I'm playing the game. There have even been a few occasions when a commercial has popped up in the middle of a match and completely ruined my momentum and progress.
Another thing that always bothers me about match-3 games is that they always include some form of life or turn system that limits the time you can play the game. At times, I have been stuck on a level for days because I kept running out of lives before I could complete it.
With that being said, there is always the option to spend money in the in-game store to buy boosts and infinite lives, but I would rather play my free-to-play titles, for free!
