Molehill Empire – Another free but quality online game

  • I actually forgot how I found this game, probably from reading one of the game forums I regularly visit. Molehill Empire is a fun, easy to learn and enjoyable free online web based game. It is similar to Harvest Moon where you play as a gardener, you plant seeds and wait for them to grow, each plant takes different amount of time to grow. You can unlock and buy different types of crops from the farm by leveling up, obviously by planting and harvesting. Higher level crops take longer to grow as well. One huge difference between Molehill Empire and Harvest Moon is that the latter is more time consuming because you have to literally walk to places like harvesting and buying new items. This is web based so everything is just a few clicks away.

    Basically these are the things you have to do:

  • Plant
  • Water
  • Harvest
  • Sell
  • Upgrade and research
  •   

    For a free web based game, the graphics are certainly amazing and eye catching as you can see from the screen shots. They are bright and clear but not to the point they will hurt players’ eyes. Graphics aside, the game play is also pretty addictive. For those that like to play number games like me should give this game a try! I call this game number game because its all about numbers, the number of seeds, crops you harvest and to the amount of money you sell them for. I just love seeing growing numbers. I’m a freak I know! :)

      

    You can also pay to its premium service for additional features such as having a second garden, having helper gnomes to help you water all your crops in one click and more inventory to store your seeds etc.

    Beside growing crops, you can also buy decorations from the hardware store for your garden which increases your attractiveness of your garden. As a result, more customers will come to your garden and buy your crops. You can also sell them to other players in the marketplace. You can also buy different types of crops to grow as you level up as mentioned. Another interesting game play is the option to research different upgrades such as faster crop growth.

      

    This game currently supports German, English and Dutch and has a forum to communicate with other players.

    Final verdict, even though it is a free game, it is a very nicely done game with both rich game play and graphics. It is perfect for casual gamers, people that just want to kill sometime and people like me who want to play something other than point, shoot and kill for a change.

    It is a decent enough review. Yet in it’s later stages the game becomes more than a simple casual game and more and more ways to play are brought in. I thoroughly enjoy playing this game and have been playing it for months. It’s small file size means it can run on most computers; yet it becomes severely addictive. I’ll email you a review I have written on the same game, it explains my views in much more detail.

    I’m glad you like the game, unfortunately I got bored of it after a month(?) or so. Just too repetitive for me.
