Farmville for your iPhone is a great way for players to access their farm without the need of a PC, but it's no replacement for the full experience on your browser.
Choose from a variety of seeds to grow beautiful fruits and vegetables. Earn coins and XP to decorate your farm or expand your acreage. Work faster with vehicles like tractors and seeders, and rear livestock including cows, sheep, and pigs. The more you help your neighbors, the faster you’ll level up. Exclusive iPhone/iPod items available!
The only real problem is that some features are not available through the FarmVille app. Temporary events and challenges like the Tuscan Wedding, pet dogs, and building construction are all unavailable, along with players’ little FarmVille avatars. This lack of some of the game’s most interesting content is a big drawback, making computer access necessary for any serious farmer. The convenience factor of being able to play FarmVille on the go is a big plus, and the touch controls are easy to master. But even though it’s functional, this free app is still no substitute for playing FarmVille online.
The iPhone version of FarmVille requires a Facebook account, so many of the people who have been avoiding the game because they're also avoiding Facebook siren song of social networking will be disappointed with this portable release. The game runs a bit sluggishly as of right now, so unless you're a FarmVille addict who absolutely has to have access to your farm all the time, this app isn't going to satisfy you until it gets a second pass under the debug machine at Zynga. If you'd like to know what it's like for a more "hardcore" audience to start a farm in FarmVille, take the time to listen to this excellent episode of our own GamePro Culture Club podcast.
In the end, it’s not a game but a task manager; you don’t play the Farmville app so much as you make it part of your workflow. Which makes sense, since Farmville and its ilk aren’t games in the traditional sense. The main purpose is to let you tend to your time-sensitive crops and other in-game tasks when you’re away from the desktop, which, If you’re into Farmville, is probably just what you need to stay connected to your virtual farm.
