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.
