Farm in your pocket
A simple story given depth by the necessities of rural life. Get away from the city noise in this Pokemon and The Sims hybrid.
A humble adventure
Chucklefish developers show their dedication to mobile gamers by bringing the farming adventure to Android.
Stardew Valley hast amazing graphics when compared to other mobile gamers. The UI made simpler and more organized than the PC version. You still have the same colorful quality and soothing soundtrack, so the comforting mood of the game will remain.
The controls have improved in the Android version. You no longer have to worry about your cursor overreaching by tapping on targets. Settings now have a couple of new useful features like the auto-attack option. Selecting this makes your character engage in constant sword swinging. This is better than the constant aiming you do on PC. Also, it looks hilarious when you have no enemies in sight.
The addicting progression of Stardew Valley stays as a winning quality on mobile. You never run out of things to do in this game. The limited hours you have for certain activities urge you to complete your tasks. You can also use tools and treasures from your inventory as you fulfill missions and build your farms.
Veteran players may at some point feel worn out after decking out their farms with all possible features. You can expect a lot of unlockables and secret items, but the story plays out linearly. Even with adjusting the zoom setting, some people may think that they can’t see enough of the game screen.
Where can you run this program?
You can play this app on Android 3.0 and later. This application is also available on iOS and PC.
Is there a better alternative?
No. Stardew Valley gives you the most satisfying character and map building experiences. You can try Harvest Moon, which has the same concept but feels more like an arcade game than RPG.
The game has so much variety most players will feel overwhelmed when trying to explore them all. Very relaxing game, worth the many hours you’d sure put into it once you start.
Should you download it?
Yes. If you like unwinding for extensive periods at a time and enjoy farming activities, this title is a must-try.
