SimFarm, what a waste of time.

Looking thru my collection, trying to remember those games that I truly enjoy from 2 decades ago. .. Well, decided to try out Sim Farm.. Installation was a breeze, and there were no problems playing these games on XP. Was really happy to know that backward compatibility in windows is really working. One of the few things to thank Bill.

The farming scene.

The farming scene.

So, what is it like after all these years…? 1st hr, I was trying to remember how to run the fields and profitable. What crops to plant in what season, crop rotation, maximising crop yield. Finally, after 5hrs got a profitable plan going, and thats when you get bored.

Sheep herding, pig and cow farming, horse breeding are also part of the game. Animal husbandry is too easy (and unrealistic), all you have to do is to buy bales of hay and leave pots of water out for them. In winter, bring them into the barn.

I guess it will be more challenging to try farming in the cold northern states and be profitable, but its so boring and I am giving up. Just installed SimCity2000, that will be my next old game review..
