Get ready for a relaxing experience in a unique, colorful and cheerful online matching game for kids. Farmscapes is a fun and unusual tycoon-style farming game where you have to play various mini-puzzle games in order to earn virtual money in order to help improve Grandpa Joe’s old farm. This fun adventure doubles as both a mini-puzzle and a farm business & management game. If you play the mini-matching puzzle games well (including two hidden object games), you can earn enough virtual money to purchase crops and renovations for Grandpa Joe’s farm.
Score sufficient virtual credit to upgrade the farm and restore it to its former glory. You also get to learn all about real-life money management strategies and tips. You must carefully budget and decide which crops to purchase, and which parts of the farm need to be upgraded. Think you’ve got the multi-tasking abilities to master the puzzles and to manage the farm all at the same time? Ok, there’s only one way to find out! Good luck!
How to Play: At the start of the game, you are introduced to Grandpa Joe and his grandson. The problem is that Grandpa Joe doesn’t have the resources to fix up his farm. That’s where you come in. You must earn virtual cash so that Grandpa Joe can purchase crops and upgrade his agricultural livelihood. To do that, you must play various mini-matching games where you can earn virtual money by scoring well.
To play a matching game – click the Play button on the bottom right of the main farm game screen. There are a number of different matching games to play, such as the popular Match 3 game. In this type of game, you must match three of the same items in a row in order to eliminate them. Using your computer mouse, left click on two items that are next to each other in order to swap them, horizontally or vertically. When you have 3 or more matching items in a row (vertically or horizontally), they are eliminated and you earn credits. Once you have completed a mini-matching game, you return to the main farm screen where you can purchase crops to be sown in Joe’s field. To do that, click on the crop icons along the bottom of the game screen.
Joe will automatically plant and harvest these crops, earning more virtual money to continue the renovation. As you progress, the matching games become more difficult, but you earn more virtual money for completing them. There are also two hidden object games thrown in as you advance.
Tip: You can play a number of matching games in a row before purchasing any materials for the farm. This gives you the chance to build up more virtual credits for your next improvements.
