If you liked Playrix’s Gardenscapes game, then you will most likely enjoy Barn Yarn. This is a sequel to the hidden object auction game, but now we are playing as designer to Farmer Joe, a relative to that old butler, and we are remodeling the farm. We start off with a beat up old barn, and immediately start looking for ways to make cash to fix it up.
The customers we run into while selling off the junk at the old farmstead are fairly patient people, and they will pay very well on everyday objects that we might find out in the wild in real life. While this is not a hidden object mystery, you might find it to be mystery on how quickly you can rack up the cash by selling junk from around the farm and looking for extra coinage that just seems to show up all over the place. Playrix also managed to get their logo, the young dragon, into the game itself as a child’s toy that Farm Joe’s grandson, Tommy, carries around, as well as part of the remodel sale.

There is an unknown town at the bottom of the sea known as Coral Bay, and the New Anemone Orphanage is in danger of being torn down due to some “beautification projects” by some local fatcats that look like sharks and barracudas. That is the main story and challenge of Tales of Lagoona: Orphans of the Ocean. It is up to us to help Islabelle, the mermaid director of the orphanage to find items in the place to sell to spruce up the place so it can stay open. We get challenges from all kinds of sea creatures in puzzles to find even more items to sell, and in searching for gems, we can open up old rooms in the orphanage and even more items to sell. The old place starts to look like its name soon, and the sharks and barracudas will find their way barred by the old residents of the orphanage and Islabelle. The logic puzzle challenges range from easy to difficult, typical puzzles we find most of these hidden object mysteries. The only true flaw I found with this cute game was the sound. It was very lacking, and what little music there was was dreamy and too relaxing. It was hard to concentrate due to the overly easy listening nature of the music, and if it were not for the thunderstorms booming over my house when I was playing this game, I might have not bothered with it. So, keep some rockin tunes going behind you when you play Tales of Lagoona: Orphans of the Ocean, and you should do just fine.
