It looks like a cool game

Freiteez says:

its saying theres an error on the video :( gonna click the link to read up about this one.

Freiteez says:

weird now the video works...i like how they compare to farmville. i am one of the very few who hasnt tried that out. These graphics look amazing for an iphone game.

TroyRific says:

Not interested in FarmVille or this app. That being said, if I were interested I think this looks like a very nice app.

Jin Lim says:

I'm not a fan of Farmville, but my girlfriend is a HUGE fan. She plays that game on FB constantly. This video comparison of Farm Frenzy 2 to Farmville was helpful.

BoGuS says:

Thanks for the heads up. I'll be downloading this shortly, not for me but for my girlfriend. If it looks like I'm playing it, it's only for my girlfriend. I swear.

Michael says:

Looks like a great game. WIll have to try it out.

Songbird says:

Wow, I had no idea it came out in 1998. I thought it was first made for the idevices. This game is very different from farmville, I know their both farm based but this is a time management game whereas farmville is a tycoon causal farming sim. I loved the first one and will definitely be getting the second one. Sadly I missed the .99 cents sale they had a week or so ago :( I heard its much more advanced than the first one though so definitely buy them in order.

jhoffmeyer says:

Farmville never interested me but this app looks good so maybe I'll give this a try.

tyrran says:

Something about games that need this constant maintence always reminds me of the endangered catipillar Lisa found on The Simpsons. "If you ignore it, it will die. It's sexually attracted to fire..
"Long story short, it's fun in controlled, short bursts, but games like this can be destructive. Not recommended for those who lose track of time easily.

Leanna Lofte says:

@Chaibynight It's actually not that type of game. Each level is timed based. You generally have somewhere from 2-5 minutes to complete your goals.

Orangensaft says:

Cool. Never really understood the whole Farmville craze as I have disabled any and all Farmville updates to my FB news feed. But the iPhone app has me at least somewhat interested.

ninjamattic says:

As a recovering farmville addict I instantly suffered from outbursts of twitching and a desire to grow crops. Resisting... urge... to... sacrifice... time...

etc says:

Looks pretty interesting. However I already have a farming app on my iPhone, and managing production in one app is enough for me.

Jason Tsai says:

i hate facebook games LOL

zeagus says:

I think I'll pass - not a huge fan, though my true pure distilled hatred is reserved for Mobsters.

Farmville Bot says:

Farmville is so addicting that my company just cut off Facebook in our network since most agent use half of their time logged in. One time, our CEO was walking around in the finance area and to his dismay, all of the employee was playing Farmville. The following day, we cannot open the site and there is a message circulating about prohibition of social network sites and instant messengers.
