dad told me about My Farm I immediately thought of Funky Barn - which is
also on the Wii U. My Farm is a bit different though. There is less of a
focus in My Farm on buildings. More focus is on the animals. We start
with one chicken and one hundred monetary units.
Feed the animals, clean them, and sell what they produce. Cows give milk, ducks give feathers, chickens give eggs, and so on. You can also fatten up the animals and sell them. I learned something the first time I played My Farm - do not buy too many animals too fast. They use up resources, get sick, and leave if you do not have the money for medicine.
My Farm is slotted for seven year olds to eleven year olds. The one problem with that is reading. My Farm explains how to play in written form. So children who are not good readers are going to need help from their parents in understanding what to do. Screens will pop up when certain things need to be done as well. Some form of verbal instruction would have made My Farm better.
When I first started to play My Farm I thought it was the slowest game ever. Then I found the fast forward button. At that point I learned My Farm can go quickly. Bear in mind fast forwarding time means you will need to clean and most likely feed the animals. As well as sell what they produce.
The music in My Farm is fantastic. The graphics in My Farm are bright and colorful. There is a cartoonish nature to the animals, farm, and buildings. Speaking of buildings I love being able to purchase things like ponds for my ducks. Kids can play My Farm, and have fun. Parents may need to assist in certain portions.
I was able to play My Farm, and I am eleven. My nine year old brother had trouble with the reading portions. Our parents were able to help him, and so was I. He quickly learned how to buy and sell animals, and we helped him with what buildings needed to be purchased. He remembered how much money he needed to save for the buildings. He did let a few animals get sick and leave.
