Farm Frenzy: Viking Heroes had much potential, but could have used an option to play it untimed. While the graphics were cute, and the idea of using boars to mine for ore and creating weapons was good, the fact that you could not go to the next level in the game unless you reached a gold or silver time stamp was unnerving.

A quick rundown, you are running not only a farming operation, but a mining one, as well as a foundry and a weaponsmithing center, and so on. Your various kinds of livestock help you with mining ore, chasing away invading bears, or capturing them to sell. These bears drop Jutenhelms, which help in upgrading your animals to a braver, more stout kind of animal that is less likely to be hunted by the bears. Not only do you capture these bears, mine oar, and make weapons, but you ship them down the fjords to other jarls for gold for when everyone goes goes a-viking next summer.

TV Farm is one of the most fun farming sims I have come across in a very long time. You have a small crew working with you, the producer, director, and technician. You get upgrades along the way to boost production as you create new products for various seasons and holidays. You are working under time limits, but they are broken down by grades of gold, silver, and bronze, so long as you get under one of the wires, you still qualify for star bonuses to get upgrades even quicker.

Ever wanted to know what it is like to drive a bus? Ever wanted to know what it would be like to try and keep a scheduled while transporting people all over town? If so that this is going to be the game for you. Bus Driver puts you behind the wheel of your very own bus so that you can experience it for yourself. The game plays like most driving games but instead of just speed to worry about you also have real word obstacles and rules that must be followed to be able to get the job done and done right. There is traffic to deal with, red and green lights and almost impossible turns to make at times that give you a real appreciation for what a real bus driver has to deal with. This is not an easy game but it is fun to play.

I had played similar games to Farm Tribe before, and although they can become addictive once you get far along into the game, getting started can be rough. This game started off slow moving while I was trying to get my new workers into place. As Anny, the daughter of an archeologist whom is searching for some Mayan mysteries, you take over the farm in the jungle that is going to fund Father’s research. You grow crops, and gather berries to make products for the local restaurants at the resorts at the nearby beaches, but meanwhile, hold back some of your products to take care of your workers in not only foods, but using funds to make your little farming community comfortable and a great place to not only work, but live.
