There's a different farming sim out there for every type of gamer (except for those that hate farming sims, that is). There are realistic simulators, and then there are some that don't seem to have all that much to do with farming. There's Harvest Moon, FarmVille, and the list goes on. Producing a farming game seems to be a winning strategy regardless of platform, so now Supercell (developer of Clash of Clans) has ported its wildly popular iOS game Hay Day to Android, and it's available for free.

Hay Day isn't particularly complex. Players run a farm on which they grow the usual plants and raise adorable animals. They can sell their produce, go fishing, bake goods, trade with friends, and run ads to spread word of their products. It has the mix of being addictive, free-to-play, and easy to learn that leads to tons of downloads. Now that it's available for Android, here comes many more.

Though Hay Day is free to download, there are in-app purchases to deal with. Thankfully, you can disable these in the game's settings if you're not interested. Enjoy.

Thanks, drew.

    Looks like your typical IAP sink targeted at children who don't know the value of money. Hurray.

    • Ryan Sullivan

      Agreed. I absolutely hate these games.

        While it is chock-full of IAP's, my wife played this game for countless hours (don't judge her, we also play Battlefield 4 and Left 4 Dead 2 together) without spending a single cent and without linking to facebook or whatever.

          Please tell her, that she's awesome. Seriously.

          Eh. That's not that unusual actually. F2P IAP distribution is uh... a bit skewed. Less than 1% buy IAPs and of that 1%, 0.9% that is to say 0.008% of the total players make up 33% of all purchases.

          Who, other than the ethically devoid, think this is a fair system? (Obviously, those who offer IAPs as extra/optional content or as full game purchase do not count)

    Isn't it too late now? I used to hear Hay Day background music all day when I live with my sister. But now, it just disappeared completely.

    I've been waiting for this. There was a soft release a couple of days ago, and I've been refreshing their page ever since.
