Most Farming Simulation games begin slowly and it is only when you increase your Levels that you even become aware of half of the Options that exist for players who have demonstrated their determination to succeed. Where Harvest Moon and Rune Factory are concerned, strategy Guides and reviews often allow players to catch a glimpse (or more) of the rewards that await players. Where a game like Lovely Farm is concerned, it may be difficult for new players to summon the initial enthusiasm to 'stay the course' although I personally believe that it is well worth the effort.
Lovely Farm is more interactive than players may realise, as each Animal has different responses, depending on its status. A Pig will root for Truffles and a Horse will paw the ground, sending up a dust cloud. The Ostrich, when it has laid its egg, will look down at it in utter astonishment, then peer about as though to show the world how proud it is of its amazing accomplishment! When you collect the Egg, it will flutter its wings excitedly.
As my own levels increased, I began to enjoy landscaping even more, although it is possible to create charming Farms even at low levels. When I acquired Neighbours who were at very high Levels, I was able to see the real scope of the game and the wonderful items and possibilities that existed for those who continued to work on their farms assiduously.
I am hoping to be able to post some screenshots of the Farms that these Neighbours have created.
