For those new to the series, the concept is that you are a farmer-rancher who just moved to town. You are given a house, introduced to the townspeople and started a new life. Once you get to your new abode and settle into the town, your mission is to find the Harvest Goddess. Once you talk to her, the problem becomes clear: there are five bells missing and you must find them all to restore the power of nature, reviving the Goddess Tree. Along the way, Finn, a harvest sprite, will guide you. You also have the option to seek the love of bachelors and bachelorettes, provided you know just what they like. A major feature in Animal Parade which differs greatly from other HM titles are the animals. Throughout the "world" you will find and be able to befriend wild animals, if you so choose.
So thats the basis of the game. I will now break up my review into parts:
STORY: I love the adventure in this game! Your quest to find the bells pretty much starts once you locate the Harvest Goddess, and at this point the adventure takes off. You have to complete one side-quest or two before you can actually speak with the Harvest Goddess and begin your quest, but these are simple and take three game days at most. She makes it clear on what your goal is and you can always go back if you have questions. But Finn is very helpful by always giving you hints and guiding you in your mission. Personally, I was able to deduce what I had to do before Finn told me, but if you get stuck then Finn will definitely help (sometimes I did need him to point me in the right direction). The first bell you get provides just the right amount of challenge.Read more ›
Anyway on with this review...
+Raise crops and livestock
+Get married and raise a family
+But the best yet... THE STORYLINE! Find and ring the five bells to save the island.
+Beautiful music, unlike ToT, which sounds cheesy, like it was recorded on a bad camera.
+Days are longer. In ToT, it took me about until 7:30 in the morning to take care of five animals. In this game, however, it takes about until 6:10 in the morning. SO much nicer and SO much more time before stores close and your day is over.
+Ride almost anything! Instead of having to buy an Ostrich to get everywhere faster, once you get hearts on your cow and your sheep, you can ride them!!!
+The world is SO much better and so much more... Mystical. Niiice.
+The gameplay is relaxing.Read more ›

Couldn't find instructions. My daughter never figured out how to play it. And she can usually figure out anything tech-related. We're very disappointed. It's not user friendly.Published 2 months ago by blockybelle
