Harvest Town is very obviously inspired by Stardew Valley and some players appear to prefer it. It’s very detailed and feature rich and has a lot of top ratings (40,000+ likes on its Facebook page alone). There is a range of IAP including a “diamonds” premium currency. Apparently you can earn diamonds in game, but given the game is free some players might want to show support to the developers by buying a couple of IAPs.
The game follows the same premise: you clear up a dilapidated, overgrown farm and start growing your own crops and interacting with villagers. The devs claim: “Harvest Town is not just a simulation game, we endowed more elements into the game, such as RPG, Puzzle, Interaction!” As well as farming, mining and crafting, some of the features include:
- Decorate your own cottage
- Adopt “cute cats and dogs”
- Mysterious cave adventure, treasure box and various Easter eggs
- Multiplayer online racing and market trading
