Farm Heroes Saga Review (King)

Farm Heroes Saga
What It Is

Farm Heroes Saga from King, the company behind Candy Crush Saga, is a match-three game, where you have to switch and match three or more items to clear them from a game grid. The items this time around are Cropsies, which are cute, farm-related objects such as carrots, onions, apples, and rain drops.

There are multiple Boosters available that help you pass the levels. Boosters range from a shovel for removing a single Cropsie to a dog that removes all of the same Cropsies on the board.

Is It Fun?

Boosters are limited so deciding when to use them adds a strategy element to the game.

The levels get progressively more challenging. Passing a level and moving up the map is very rewarding.

You can connect the game to your Facebook profile to see how your friends who are playing the game are doing. The top-three scores are listed for each level. On the map, you will be able to see the level where your friends are.

Who It’s For

Farm Heroes Saga is rated ages 4 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The map also includes roadblocks that prevent you from progressing to the next level, but there are a few ways to pass the roadblocks. You can ask Facebook friends for help or you can wait several days for the roadblock to clear. Waiting several days is frustrating but it gives you an alternative to spending real money, which is the third option for passing the roadblocks. The game starts you off with 50 gold bars that can also be used to instantly unlock Boosters. After going through the first 50, the only way to get more gold bars is by purchasing them with real money.

Farm Heroes Saga from King is available now on iOS and Android devices. It's also playable online and on Facebook.
