Fun elements of FarmVille
Fun elements of HayDay
Hay Day has the added display of a complete city with a train depot, downtown and other backgrounds. The animals are goofy looking with funny sounds and animation to match. Trading with friends is easy with the pictures of each item and the amount of the trade listed. This game is more than planting and harvesting crops because of the ability to interact with a riverboat and create a town. In-app purchases are available where coins and diamonds can be used to speed the progress of each task. There is a feature to turn off in-apps at any time.
Farmville is a cool game, although it has too many features and pop-ups with tons of directions. In addition, some of the animals are far-fetched, which distracts from the theme of the game. Colorful unicorns are a stretch. The wait time for crops to harvest adds an element of reality to the process, but requires the player to return regularly. The feature that tells you when they will be ready is a help. Buying farm cash is simple with a click unless you want to wait to use the money earned from your crops instead. The software is a bit sluggish as you move from each activity.
Hay Day has an authentic feel to it with real animals and landscapes. The interaction with all the characters is hilarious. The animation with the smoke from the train, and riverboat moving down the river make this game a must play. The landscape is also well-done with a variety of areas to engage including a fishing dock. It is easy to trade with friends and neighbors on the roadside, in the game community or on Facebook. The ability to build a town and grow crops combines two popular mobile game concepts.
It is easy to have two farms going at the same time with one for each game. The amount of time needed to do this could be a lot. However, it is a fun option as you and friends trade in both worlds. A big drawback to Farmville is that you need a Facebook account to access it. The software is not as seamless and can be sluggish with each function. Hay Day on the other hand is a responsive app that offers easy access on any mobile device without the need for third parties.
