    "Just so you know Pocket Harvest is a free game on Android. If anyone would ask me what other farming game i can suggest to them aside from Stardew Valley i will without a doubt answer them Pocket Harvest. The best thing about this is that it is very addicting, no ads, and internet connection is also needed. "

    "I recently got into stardew valley but since i'm so preoccupied with school, i'm barely home that's why I tried to look for close alternatives to sate my stardew valley addiction and animal crossing was the best i could think of installing. although the farming bit isn't visible in the game, it has the community gameplay and engagement that has me hooked!"

    "While a farming simulator game, I would not agree that its like Stardew Valley. The biggest selling point to a game like Stardew Valley isn't just the farming aspects, but also the interacting with other NPCs within the game. I'd just play Stardew Valley than something like this."


If the success of Harvest Moon, Animal Crossing, and the Farmville craze of 2009 are anything to go by, farming games have a huge worldwide appeal. Farmville became so popular that the number of its monthly users surpassed the total number of Twitter users in 2009. Facebook grew from having 200 million users in 2009 to 750 million in 2011, as users joined Facebook solely to play the game. Other successful farming simulation games include the Farming Simulator series and the recent video game hit, Stardew Valley. Farming Simulator 17, the latest release, sold one million copies in its first month. Collectively, the series has sold four million copies since the first game was released in 2008. On the other hand, Stardew Valley has a 10/10 average rating on Steam, with overwhelmingly positive reviews. Users say that the appeal for farming simulation games comes from the idea of becoming a virtual business owner. Players can build a farming empire without having to worry about real-life problems like droughts, floods, and insects. Mistakes made in the game won’t lead to wasted food crops and lost income. The games’ optimistic views on farming prompted one user to say “maybe this is what farming will be like in heaven.”

    "Super love this game. Although it isn't set in a farm....I like it because it differs in the settings in an island where the player will plant trees and flowers and harvest crops. The best part is that there are hundreds of quests that you can complete i am not even halfway. "

    "I like township a lot as a game, the graphics are great and the levels are fun. I am not sure if it is exactly like Stardew valley (the graphics are better on township)but I like that I can build up a city and can trade with others to get what I like."

    "Avakin Life is nothing like Stardew Valley. Like, completely different and there's no reason I can see that one who likes one would play the other. Completely different worlds, completely different feel. Even different kind of games."
