Hay Day

Hay Day

I was told about this game from my Aunt Betsy, with her telling me how fun it was. So, I decided to install it.

It was on my tablet for about 15 minutes and then promptly removed.

The game, made by Supercell, runs along the same premise as other successful social simulation games like Farmville, Cafe World, Chefville and other games in that genre.

The premise of Hay Day is to build your farm from the ground up, planting and harvesting crops, milking cows, baking goods to sell, etc. You complete 'orders' from the NPC 'townfolk' and, if linked to your Facebook, friends who also play. (Social linking is completely optional, but the constant reminders to do so are intrusive)

The quicker you complete orders, the quicker you can 'upgrade' your farm and reach higher levels. In the 15 minutes I played the game, I got to level 6. And that's when it got boring for me.

I am not a patient person when it comes to games like this. I am not a gamer in general, but social games like this are DEFINITELY not for me. I like to make progress as quick as possible, and this game has certain time limits.

As far as a disabled person playing this game, it will be tough, even for someone with perfect motor control. You need to tap and swipe for a LOT of the game and if you're not careful where you're tapping or swiping, you could easily find yourself on your device's home screen.

The game is cute and for a mobile device, the graphics are great, but it just didn't cut it for me.

Hay Day is available on the iTunes App store or Google Play for free, but there are in-app purchases.

Hay Day is a cute game, but it's hard for a disabled person to play, and it gets old and repetitive quickly.
