5.0 out of 5 stars Creative and melodic, 7 Feb 2005

You use your crops and animals as a source of income, and the more profit you get the more seeds and animals you can get. And this is how the game progresses. There's no real goal or ending, just an ongoing need to afford a new animal and grow a new plant.
On the surface it can seem like a tiresome and boring game. And if you prefer your game at bottleneck speed, then maybe this isn't for you.
