FrontierVille is a pretty basic game and everybody who has a computer and some experience in handling it will certainly have no problems in playing Zynga’s latest title. However, since there are some goodies you might just miss in the game if you’re not paying too much attention, I’m creating this beginner’s guide on how to play FrontierVille.
What are the basics of FrontierVille and what’s your goal in the game?
FrontierVille seems to be a “never-ending story” like all social games: your objective is to complete given goals ranging from planting crops to getting married, while also making sure that the plot of land you own is danger-free, looks great and can become a thriving town in the future.
The game is played using the mouse only using a very intuitive control method: simply clicking an item will perform the appropriate action (e.g. clicking an animal will feed it or collect from it, depending on the case; clicking a tree will cut it; or clicking a building will open up a new menu).
In the lower right corner of the playing screen, as pictured below, you have some extra control options: the My Tools section which allows you to move, rotate or delete completely any item, the shortcut to the market where you can buy all sorts of goodies, from crops to decorations and finally the the My Stuff section or your backpack.
Once clicked, the My Stuff button will open up a new window where you can check out your gifts, family album (where you can customize your avatar), the inventory and the collections.
You will also need to perform all sorts of actions around your plot of land, which will give you in return experience, coins and different consumables or collectibles. Here are the actions you can perform:
- Clear the grass, wildflowers, skulls and rocks around
- Chop down trees to collect wood
- Plant and harvest crops to get coins and food
- Build buildings with the help of your neighbors
- Scare or Clobber animals that come by
- Help your neighbors
Pretty soon you’ll be an expert at playing FrontierVille and you’ll most likely become highly addicted to it. But it’s OK, we all are!
