Welcome to Life in Willowdale: Farm Adventures! I hope you are ready to farm and fight some large pig monsters, as all farmers usually have to deal with. You take control of the restorative efforts in the sleepy town of Willowdale and make sure that it is brought back to life and defended from the various monsters that roam the world. There’s a lot to love about games like this, especially this one as it blends two genres with the cozy gaming aspect that we’ve come to know and love and the action-adventure genre which provides some much-needed excitement. If this sounds interesting to you, keep reading as we get into it.
Life in Willowdale: Farm Adventures is a top-down adventure game that has you taking over restorative efforts of a broken down town. Many people and animals have left and there is very little going on, so you must take initiative and gather resources, start a farm, rebuild buildings and heal the land. It’s a lot like Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Stardew Valley, with all that you can see and do in that cartoony style.
This is resource management game first and foremost, but intrinsically linked to that is traversal and exploration. You will need to travel to the Flower Fields, Death Desert, Forgotten Forest, and Mighty Mountain, and make sure that you are prepared to fight along the way as things will get hairy before you know it. You need to find people, animals, and items and put them where you think they need to go to make sure your town is successful.
There’s a little something for everyone here with the vast world filled with lots of interesting things likes yearly events, cook some food at the Wine & Dine or any of the other activities available for you to peruse. This game takes good care of you and makes sure that you are never bored.
Combat plays a large part in this game; you must form a group of adventurers called Willowdale’s Protectors. With simple hack and slash mechanics, this is easily one of the easiest bits of the game to learn, but the hardest to master.
The visual medium in this game is quite a nice one. With a camera which sits above the character, you get a good view of their immediate vicinity, making resource collecting much easier and allowing you to enjoy how colorful and cute everything is.
The way that the town is arranged, buildings are designed, local fauna and flora are presented is all very well done with a distinct cartoonish look. I found it all very enjoyable from start to finish.
The music of this game is pretty good. Its joyous and easy to listen to. You’ll find yourself bobbing your head alone with the battle music, or passively enjoying it as you explore the town or the local areas. You know music has been done well when you don’t often notice it.
This game offers a lot to the discerning player and combines good bits from multiple games.
- Good combat
- Nice music
- Lots of exploration
- Visuals are a little lackluster in regards to the characters themselves.
