You're shipwrecked! Luckily no one was hurt and most of the passengers set sail for their destinations, but you found an abandoned homestead on this remote island. With hard work and skillful farming, you will prosper and help your adventurous shipmates establish a new village with roads, bridges and exciting places to visit. There's a lot of farming to do, people to date and animals to care for, it's a new beginning and a chance to raise a farming family of your own!
In Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness players' plans to start a new life are drastically changed when the ship you are on is destroyed by a tropical storm. Now you find yourself stranded on an isolated island with a family of four from the ship. However, it seems that the island once was inhabited before
what happened to the people that used to live there? As you develop the island by growing crops, taking care of animals and expanding your farm, others will start to move onto the island and this mystery may be solved. The better you do, the more the island will grow. Though it was not your original dream, now is your chance to create your very own paradise.
Working with your fellow refugees, your first order of business is to create a farm. With what you grow you will soon be able to feed yourself and your fellow castaways and eventually will graduate to raising animals (some of the animals included are: cows, sheep, chickens and ducks). As you build up your farm, people who have an interest in the farming business move on over to the island and seek you out. These people open up shops and facilities, contributing to the island's development, and provide you with new areas to explore and new people to speak with.
What good is paradise without someone to share it with? Once players have established themselves on the island by building and maintaining a farm and successfully raising animals on their homestead they will begin to notice that there are quite a few more people on the island than they initially suspected. Like yourself, many of these new faces are looking for someone to share their lives with. In addition to success on the farm, marriage also requires a few other requirements, but once satisfied you are free to play the field, go on dates and search available profiles for that special someone. But be careful. You will not be compatible with everyone you meet. Just a few or the bachelors and bachelorettes you will run into are:
Bio: Natalie is one of the people who is shipwrecked on the island with you. She can be rather rough, a tomboy and competitive, and usually makes fun of her brother.
Bio: An exotic animal dealer, Vaughn has a very serious, almost emotionless attitude. He comes to the islands on Wednesdays and Thursdays and carries a lot of money.
Bio: Sabrina came to the island with her father, who is president of the mining company. She is a quiet, shy girl who helps her father with his work and is very interested in ores.
Bio: Shea is the adopted son of the witch doctor, Wada. He helps Wada by guarding his hens, ducks and birds from the Demon Bears. Unlike other bachelors, his heart is invisible.
|Name: Witch Princess|
Bio: The Witch Princess grew tired of living in Forget-Me-Not Valley and so moved to the island in hopes of meeting new people. In addition, she heard that the Harvest Goddess is here. She keeps 21 small teddy bears and one large one in her house and has an invisible heart.
Bio: Denny is very familiar with the sea. He heard there's a lot to be found on the island, so when his mother told him to meet new people he came to check it out. Though normally cheerful, he has quite a temper when mad.

- It's very dangerous in the beginning if you are not very careful. Not only of you have to worry about stain a in this on, but also hunger. Your hunger will slowly fall during the day. If you don't manage it properly, you will starting waking up later and later. If it reaches zero, you pass out. That makes foraging very important.
- Foraging is a bit trickier this time around. In this HM game, plants don't have set spawn points. They can spawn anywhere on the ground, which can be anywhere on the island. Finding the flower of herb you need can take half your day, which reduces the amount of work you can do. My piece of advice: eat every herb you find until your hunger is full, and get the fishing rod as soon as possible for both food and money.
- One last thing I will talk about: the item ranking system. Almost every item in HM: Island of Happiness has a quality ranking. If you want to know how it works, there are plenty of guides for it, just use google. One thing I will say is that you never know what the rank will be when you pick it up. Two of the same herbs sitting right next to each other could be an entirely different rank.
- Every action is controlled by the stylus.
Concluding, Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness is a fun HM title, but not the best I've played. I started with Save the Homeland, and that game just dragged me in. This game feels like it is trying to too hard. I do enjoy it when I'm playing it, but I don't find myself really missing it while I'm not.
the use of the stylus to move the main character and other commands. It would've been better
with the option of using the control pad or stylus, in my opinion. Still, that being said, this game is
massive. By that I mean the whole island, there's so much to see and do. I've been a HM fan since the
first game for the SNES came out. You've got to be a HM fan to really appreciate the HM series.
If you're not, you'll find the game repetitive and boring. I would recommend it for younger people and
even adults who would appreciate a deep and purposeful game.
P.S to me this is like the farming version of Dark Souls in some ways lol.
