[prMac.com] Klaipeda, Lithuania - Realore Studios today is proud to announce the release of Farm Up! HD 1.02, its new free game on iPad. The action is set in the 1930's America. The game's main protagonist Jennifer decides that the best way to upkeep her family wellbeing is to buy an old farm which should help them get through the difficult times. Very soon Jennifer realizes that her proactive life position and farming talent are capable of much more than just helping her own family out. She begins to support local farmers and the good word spreads across America bringing Jennifer international fame.
The gameplay of Farm Up starts off as a casual farming simulator. Players plant vegetables and fruits, grow cattle and step-by-step rebuild the mansion and the surrounding territories. Later in the game, when players are more or less familiar with Farm Up's core mechanics new opportunities arise. At first local farmers start asking for Jennifer's assistance. Later, as her fame grows, help-seeking businessmen from all over the country start contacting her with profitable propositions. To be able to deliver her goods to other states, Jennifer will have to restore the infrastructure: rebuild the roads, the river port, and the railroad, all of which have declined because of the crisis. Of course Jennifer can not handle all the business on her farm alone, so she is helped by her husband and grandparents.
Each character is able to do simple farming tasks like planting or watering, but certain jobs like chopping wood or building a paddock can be completed only by a specific person. With all the money coming from the business players will be able to rebuild the local school which allows to upgrade the characters' skills. Players are also given an opportunity to mount industrial buildings, produce high-quality processed food and become a true beacon for the farmers in the times of hardships.
The North Carolina farm setting, tiny little graphics detail and a peaceful soundtrack perfectly recreate the atmosphere of the 1930's America. The gameplay grows in scale as players progresses through the story. From planting a couple of potato sprouts it evolves into a great mission to help US farming industry. The farm itself is totally customizable so players are able to create their own dream ranch. There are plenty of decoration options so everybody could create an out-of-town mansion to their liking.
