Ratings and Reviews
Great game... For a different device. Nothing but a buggy, failed iOS port.
The game itself is fairly good, and considering it's truly free, a rarity in the iOS columns, it would normally be a 4 star game. However, the awkward controls knock this back to 2 stars for me, as it was clearly ported over from a control scheme with multiple buttons for multiple controls. The camera movement always selects something instead and the square it selects when you're trying to select is usually about 1 square away from where your finger is actually touching the screen. This frustration and removal of a plot from the original HTS makes it nothing more than a failed, buggy iOS port.
It’s ok for a mobile game
This game has a very pick up and put down feel to it. You won’t be playing it for very long. The original game on the 3DS felt very much like a mobile game so if this was a port of the 3DS version it would have been a great game. But it is a completely watered down version of the 3DS game with not much to do. You go around and put items on tables and that’s really all there is to this game. It’s very simple and if simple is your thing then you will like this game but if you are a fan of the Harvest Moon series or even just this game on the 3DS then you will notice a scary lack of gameplay.
Short play through
Fun at first but two upgrades in and you’re cut off (upgrade available at 5 & 10, have to pay for 15) it makes it hard to want to continue, merchants continue to get more items (although I read it another view the items are reduced by level 20) but you have nowhere to realistically put them. The game is cute and fun but with the upgrades requiring real money, the items cutting down and the wonky controls I don’t see myself keeping this on my phone. Too many similar games that are executed better, do not recommend.
