Following a fairly successful soft launch in Canada, Zynga’s FarmVille 2: Country Escape launches globally today on iOS and Android. The Facebook version has been out since 2012, though the new mobile version won’t require a social plug-in to bug your friends for resources. You can also play offline, which is a nice change of pace from these types of games. The usual freemium city-building tropes are here: gather resources, plant new crops, wait on timers, or speed them up through in-app purchases, and co-operate with friends.
If you've got a new iPad you're probably already aware of how great of an experience gaming is on it. But what about those Facebook games that you're addicted to that may be Flash based? Odds are, you'll be able to enjoy those on your new iPad too.

FarmVille is a widely popular real-time farm simulation game created by Zynga. It was originally created as a flash game for Facebook and eventually became available at farmville.com. Players can now farm on go with the most recent version of FarmVille on the iPhone.
Zynga's Farmville has just sprouted its way onto the iPhone and is just waiting for you to harvest it via the iTunes App Store.
You can access your existing Facebook farm or start a new agrarian life from scratch. There's also exclusive iPhone/iPod touch content -- we've already seen snow leopards in honor of Apple's current Mac OS X -- and all of the same seeds, fruits, vegetables, and animals casual gamers have grown to love.
FarmVille addicts rejoice! It appears as though the widely popular Facebook game FarmVille by Zynga is coming to iPhone and iPad.
Nothing has been officially announced, but the domains farmvilleiphone.com and farmvilleipad.com have been reserved by the same company that is responsible for the official FarmVille website. This could only mean that Zynga must be planning to make FarmVille available for iPhone and iPad.
The question now is whether Zynga is also planning on releasing FarmVille applications in the App Store, or if there will be strictly web apps available for the game.
