If you like farming simulation games, then you are in for a treat. Farm and Mine, developed and published by Airport, has just been showcased during the Pocket Gamer's Launchpad 5 Day 1 stream. And it's simply beautiful.
Farm and Mine is a pretty straightforward game that combines farming, Population growth, and industry.The Farming aspect
First is agriculture, where you focus on growing crops to feed the population. Some of the produced crops, like vegetables, fruits, etc., can be sold directly at the market, while other crops like wheat will take a long production chain to be consumed. For example, it will first be sent to the windmill to be converted into flour and then to the bakery to bake bread, and then you can sell the bread.The Population aspect
As the population grows, you will have more workforce, which is a currency in the game to upgrade production automation. For example, you can spend money to increase the farm fertility and then spend workforce to work in the idle mode, without the need to click on it. (However, you can always increase the production speed of anything by tapping on the facilities).
Keep in mind that you will have to build additional houses or else your population won't grow. To make more houses, you will need to expand your industry.The Industry aspect
You start by mining clay to produce bricks; later on, as your game progresses, you will unlock other materials such as Iron, Coal, etc., which will allow you to build skyscrapers.
The industry will also provide additional production chains to produce goods for your population and provide special growth boosts.
The never-ending cycleYou can earn prestige points in Farm and Mine by restarting the game whenever you feel that progression has slowed down. These prestige points can be used to increase an aspect of the game - you can increase the housing capacity, price level, production efficiency, etc.
Some of the exciting features of Farm and Mine are:
- The game has an auto-clicker, meaning you don't have to bother clicking to collect resources.
- The game works offline just fine.
- The game doesn't force you to watch ADs. However, you can watch ADs voluntarily to receive in-game bonuses.
- Idle time is unlimited: Which means you don't have to bother logging back into the game after every few hours.
