Completely free, quality game design, lots of levels, really addictive, no ads
Farm Heroes Saga for Android is a Match 3 Puzzle Game from the makers of the insanely popular Candy Crush Saga. This game has a rather more wholesome appearance than previous titles, being based on smiling fruits and vegetables, rather than candy. But Farm Heroes Saga is every bit as addictive as its sugar-sweet forebear.
The graphics in Farm Heroes Saga are very polished and appealing. The vegetables bounce happily while waiting for you to move them around. It’s not too difficult, at least in early levels, to move something around such that you harvest a huge amount in one go (this can happen when a move gets concatenated, with further items matching up and disappearing and so on). When this happens, you are rewarded with big firework bursts, and “Awesome” or “Farmtastic”. This will really make you pretty good at the game, even if you achieved this amazing move by pure accident. The sound effects are cute. In particular, each type of item makes a different kind of “whoop” or “whee” when you collect it. Thankfully, the music can be switched of independently.
In each level you will have a limited number of moves to collect certain numbers of particular items. This adds a new twist to this classical type of game. As every Facebook user knows already, the game will implore you to share your farmtastic results with the social network (please don’t!) There are a lot of levels in this game, with plenty to keep even the most frantic player busy for many, many hours. There are sure to be a huge number of permutations and twists in Farm Heroes Saga as you progress through the levels. If this is your sort of game, or if you are totally new to the genre, you should definitely try it out.
