Difference between Farmville and Farmtown

When work is a bit slow and there are hours to fill until quitting time, many people turn to the fascinating distraction that online planting and farming activities provide by way ofFarmville and now Farmtown. These two games are some of the most popular in the FaceBook universe, although the of have their own strengths and weaknesses. Let's take a look at some of them!

Farmville
Farmtown

Money

Farmtown seems to have the edge over Farmville in terms of allowing players to hold on to their money longer. Farmville only allows users a short time to harvest their crops before they wither and die. While Farmtown does have a similarly short grace period, its crops usually have a longer life. In addition, Farmville seems to require payment of actual money for game cash, as opposed to Farmtown, which gives players numerous opportunities to make money even without having to spend any real money in the process.

Graphics

In terms of graphics, Farmtown again has a slight edge, with images and renditions that are a lot more realistic and slicker than Farmville’s offerings. With Farmville, it can sometimes be hard to tell if the plots have been planted in already. The rendering of the trees and pokants could also use some more detail, although the farmers are drawn more convincingly. Farmtown for its part offers remarkably realistic graphics, and a lot of care has obviously been given in making sure that the animated objects more closely resemble their real world counterparts. There are still certain elements that are rendered out of scale, but on the whole, Farmtown is a lot more pleasing to the eye than Farmville.

Details And Extras

In terms of game extras, Farmtown again takes the edge, with a slew of offerings that are simply not available in Farmville. There are more houses and extra land offers than Farmville for instance, and there are a lot more decorations available besides. Farmtown also has the advantage in that it is a lot faster and easier to move up to the subsequent levels. There is also more to do in Farmtown, while you would normally have to wait for a few hours for your crops to sprout in Farmville. While both games are still under constant development, but it appears that Farmtown has the edge over Farmville at least for the time being.

  • Allows users only a short time to harvest their crops before they wither and die
