Tap Farm, The Closest Thing to Farmville on iPhone

Farmville is arguably one of the most successful games of all time, gathering almost 53 million active users per month.  And with so much popularity behind the game and name, there’s bound to be atleast some developers thinking of porting a clone of the game onto the iPhone platform.  Most have been quite unsuccessful if not hopeless; some notable ones including iFarm from Playmesh.

Tap Farm from Streetview Labs, the makers of Tap Defense, seems to be a different story though, being without “Playmesh points” or other unnecessary things.  And best of all, Tap Farm is free for all users to play.  Another notable feature I found with Tap Farm is the ability to visit neighbors, and while I’m not sure if they are actual players from around the world, it’s still cool nonetheless.

You also have the ability to earn more coins to buy more patches and fruits by downloading Streetview Labs’s other games including Tap Out and Tap Defense.  Overall, the system was quite seamless with little to no loading times, and it almost feels like Farmville on my iPhone.  I haven’t gotten far enough to tell whether you find baby cows on your farm or chocolate milk cows, but so far, it seems to be quite an interesting Farmville clone.

If you’re interested in these type of farming tycoon games at all, Tap Farm seems to be a noticeable standout from the rest.  I’m sure there will be more developers jumping on the farm tycoon bandwagon soon, but for now, Tap Farm is one of the best available on the iPhone.  And for free, you really can’t complain.

  5. Mike on Sunday 13, 2009

  6. Farmer555 on Sunday 13, 2009

    Tap the very base of the tree trunk to move or harvest trees.

  7. kat on Sunday 13, 2009

    Me neither. It’s almost impossible for me to move the trees, even when I tried tapping every single corner of the tree. it must be a very stupid thing of the game.

    You wanna know how to make some big bank. Don’t build anything for awhile, just keep harvesting. Best thing right off is just keep planting eggplant. They cost more but they are the highest return. Just keep building your crop until you have the whole screen filled. Plant eggplants for about 3 or 4 levels. Yes I know you want it to look like a farm but trust me. Build up alot of money and once you get cotton, don’t harvest anything else. Again they cost more but you get 1000 coins per square which is lik a 850 coin return. Do this for as many levels as you can, and then slowly build keeping as many crops as you can. Because once you bank with cotton, you can buy as much of anything. I’m almost to level 25, and I’ve already made well over 5mil and am starting to make my farm look good. Alittle bit at a time. But keep alot of cotton and you’ll never have to worry about coins again.

    I’ve been using Tap Farm Free 6 Magic Beans the whole time. Now I’m trying to add the Free 5 Beans app and every time I open it, it says I’ve received them but it doesn’t actually show up. Does this mean I have to have been running the regular Tap Farm app? If so, how do I transfer my farm from the free 6 beans app to the regular app?

  26. cass on Sunday 13, 2009

    The time remaining for my crops doesn’t update unless I go out of the app for a while, or save the game. Is this normal, or is there a fix for this?
