Product Description

From the Manufacturer

    Planet Horse

    Saddle up for the adventure with Planet Horse! Freely ride your horse in spectacular settings thanks to meticulously detailed graphics. The graphics faithfully reproduce the animations of the horse and rider's movements to immerse you in the equestrian world (Lush landscapes in the European forest, Waterfalls, etc.). Travel through stunning landscapes and admire incomparable viewing angles.

    Achieve numerous challenges, protect the environment and take part in real riding competitions. The game offers three different solo game modes: Ride, Show Jumping Event and Cross Country, with a progressive difficulty level. Ride mode invites you to explore the environments to look for items to collect and to discover numerous stunning views to admire. Show Jumping Competition allows you to achieve the best time in an environment comprising fences which the horse must jump. Speed, accuracy and precise control of the approaches will be crucial to obtaining the best result. During Cross Country Competition, you will put all your horse's abilities to the test over a fast and winding course. This discipline will require skill and self-control to succeed in great style!

    Choose a horse from 7 different breeds (among which a zebra and a unicorn). Take care of your horse (wash and groom your equine companion to ensure the animal fells well and happy at the stud farm. Train him, earn his trust and become friends with him. You can also count on the support of your personal trainer to become an excellent rider and start the adventure of your life in America!

    • Switch between 3 exciting modes: free horseback riding, show jumping events and cross country. Each discipline unlocks a particular characteristic of the horse, while enabling you to acquire new items
    • Choose your horse from 7 breeds including a zebra and a unicorn, and explore huge worlds in two extensive environments. You will therefore be able to ramble at leisure along dense forest tracks in Europe, or cross a harsh American desert setting.
    • Customize your appearance and your horse with many accessories. A reward system for each victory allows you to fill up your virtual purse to then buy more equipment for you and your horse. Train your horse, take care of it, and together, become an unbeatable team.
    • Simply click to control your horse: intuitive and immediate game control with gameplay using the mouse exclusively. The controls are intuitive as only the mouse is used, so you are not required to synchronise actions with the keyboard or with complicated button combos. The horse's movements are controlled using the left mouse button, either continuously to change direction in real time, or by clicking several times.
    • Train your horse, take care of it, and together, become an unbeatable team.

First, let me say that this is the first and only horse video game I've ever played, although that will probably change soon! Also, I find that I'm feeling very wordy today, so for a summary, skip to the end.

In this game you take the role of a girl who arrives at a stud farm to begin training. You can choose her name, but her appearance is fixed (a blond, blue-eyed teenager/young adult). Once you start the game you are given a horse to start with. You can choose from 7 different "breeds," including a zebra or unicorn (?!), but for the most part they only differ in coat color. The colors are "piebald" (which is actually technically skewbald since it's brown and white); mouse grey (with black points), dark bay, a slightly lighter chestnut, black, palomino, and appaloosa. (It does seem to me that at least the shape of the horses' heads vary from breed to breed.) You can make a few customizations such as face markings and socks, choose stallion/mare/gelding (although the dialogue always refers to the horse as "him"), and "temperament," in which you can choose where the horse will excel - stamina, jumping, speed, or a balanced mix. You can also name the horse.

Once you get into the game, you'll step through a couple of tutorial-type tasks before all the features are unlocked. These features, starting with the first available, are:

Rides: This includes outings in the countryside, in which you are tasked with collecting a certain number of items (by running over them) before your horse's stamina is depleted; and "endurance" races, which are rides that follow a certain course that you must complete before stamina runs out. (They only run about 2 minutes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple and Fun December 13, 2010
Verified Purchase
As the owner of many horse games that involves mysteries and storylines, I was pleasantly surprised with this game. It was very user friendly and simple. There were many options to choose from to customize your player and your horse and there were also a good amount of events so it didn't get boring. The gameplay was nice, the controlling was easy. The graphics are very nice and realistic. However, the graphics look exactly like the game Horse Life for PC but it was still very good. If your looking for a simple horse game without the pointless storylines and tasks, than this is a good game.

5.0 out of 5 stars planet horse review December 7, 2011
By audrey
this game is really good, I'll start at the begining. when you first start, you have to make your first horse. you can choose between breeds, sel francias, arab, anglo arab, mustang,zebra, unicorn( u dont have 2 unlock this:)) you choose its color, face marks, leg marks,gender, and what skill type. your first horse is a begginer horse, so he cant have as good skills, but once you unlock the horse fair(where you can buy more horses) you can buy advanced horses which have better skills. your horse can be all around, jumper, stamina, or fast. whatever you choose, you still get the other skils but they arnt as good. when your done making a horse, you apear at a screen and your instructor tells you to go on a ride. u clik on the rides buton and theres only one ride: pincones. you click on it and you go to the ride. you hold down the mouse button or click on the screen where you want to ride. you have to collect a certain # of cones to get coins. after the ride, you groom your horse. then you unlock jumping, where you get to jump your horse. as u ride more, you unlock more things to do,:free rides, jumping, cross country, store, grooming, stable, and locer room where u can change ur clothes. there is so much fun things, when u ride alot, you get more things unlocked at the store. you unlock clothes :pants, boots, helmets, tops ,gilets, gloves. you unlock hors stuff: saddles, saddle pads, boots, bell boots, ear nets.then you can unlock the horse fair, where you can buy horses that can have better skils, you can have as many horses you want!!!! the only bad thing is that it is hard, in free rides, to keep your horse at a walk or trot, its easier to do canter or gallop. otherwise, love it sooooooooooo much, great deal, only ten bucks. i definatly recomend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! November 9, 2010
A Kid's Review
I would have never guessed this game could be so fun. When I first looked at it I thought oh well but when i Saw it again it looked even more fun. Then i tried it out and I am so glad I did It is so fun the show jumping is like a movie slow motion and sound when you approach a jump it's pretty amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Starter Game February 3, 2013
By Bob
Verified Purchase
Of all the horse games available on Amazon, this one provides the player with the fastest rewards and incentives, making it highly enjoyable for little girls. We have all of them, and the others make you work through monotonous days of labor, whereas this one lets you jump right into competitions, jumps and journeys. Controls are very easy to master and instructions very clear. My 5 y/o loves this one and has tons more enthusiasm for it than the other horse/stable games. She will probably return to them once she becomes more adept, but we highly recommend Planet Horse, particularly as a first game.

I really liked this game, it's fairly simple but met all my expectations. You can choose from a variety of different colored horses, increase their ability, customize your equipment, and take them on multiple challenges. Slightly addicting.
