Tiny Pixel Farm is a farming game with idle gaming mechanics. Developed and published by GAMESTARTLLC, it is available to be downloaded and played in both Android and iOS platforms. Unlike many games in the market, this is a low quality graphics game. Mainly consisting of pixels and no hard visuals to be loaded on your device. Enjoying the content itself would be the major idea behind the creation of the game so far.
Objectives of the game
The aim of the game is actually decided by you. You can plan to fill out the encyclopedia, which means to unlock all animals and hotel guests. You can also choose to earn as much cash as possible. Playing the game casually will eventually allow you to unlock all farm plots as well as completing the encyclopedia.
You start out with a little farm and you need to guide your character through his/her daily routine. With just a small plot of land that can fit 2 animals, you will need to take care of those animals and start earning money to unlock the other sections of the farm. As you expand your farm, your responsibilities will grow with it.
Taking over your own ranch filled with a jungle of little characters. We are talking about having several types of animals and guests coming from time to time to visit your ranch. Below we will talk about different parts of the game that is important.
Farm animals need to be fed regularly in order for you to get products from them. The Silo holds the food for them, the basic silo will only hold 30 pieces of food. The animals in your ranch eat every few seconds, so the moment you have several plots of land filled with animals, you will be struggling with your food supply. There is no need to buy food, but you have to manually mow the small patches of lawn below the silo to get more food. You can increase the maximum storage capacity of the silo by purchasing expansions as you progress in-game.
After tapping on the truck, you will see a mini board game with different icons in it. Truck, blue bag, yellow bag, a town and a farm, your goal is to reach the farm. You are given a dice roll every 10 minutes and it will stop regenerating when you have 3 rolls waiting. Landing on the farm will net you 540 experience and 540 gold. After that, the farm will relocate to a different part of the board and you start over.
There will be different animals walking into and around your farm. Animals including dogs, rabbits, birds, so on and so forth. They are harmless and they drop blue experience gems as they roam. As your ranch grows, there will be more animal visitors roaming around.
Tip: When you see a heart icon on one of the animals, tap on it right away to gain even more experience.
At the top left of your farm, there is a small building, that is your hotel. Guests will often drop by, by letting them roam around your farm, they will drop coins. When they are done roaming, they will return to the hotel leaving a bag of gold in their bed.
This is where your products are kept, customers go here to buy what they need. You can tap on the store to see how many products you currently own. Needless to say, the more you upgrade your structures, the more you can store.
Tips and Tricks
- Manually mowing the grass is inevitable and it’s not pointless. Dragging your character across the grass patch, you will be able to clear it for a few seconds before it grows right back. Once in a while, you will find coins and experience gems when you mow the grass. Especially when you first start out, this is extremely helpful.
- Unlike most idle games that gives you unlimited passive income when you are offline, in Tiny Pixel Farm you will need to sell stuff first in order to earn anything. Before logging off, remember to fill up your storage first. The amount of money you can earn when you return will depend on how many products you had in your storage before you log off.
- As you level up, you will be able to buy rarer animals. These are more expensive than your regular animals. Keep in mind that, animals have levels. So don’t be tempted to trade in your original animals for rarer ones. Rare animals don’t necessarily make more money than your regular ones. It is more cost-effective to just hold on to the ones you have instead of selling them to buy rare animals. You should only buy rare animals for the sake of completing your gallery.
We think that Tiny Pixel Farm is a relatively simple farming game for you to enjoy. If you don’t exactly have the time to focus on building a farm actively, this is the game for you. This idle game will allow you to build and progress offline. However, if you’re looking for a game to play with your friends and socialize, this probably isn’t it.
