Farming Simulator 20 best farming games for Android
Farming games aren’t the most popular among mobile games. Still, there is a sizeable and fiercely loyal fan base for this kind of stuff. Farming simulators have several unique game play elements. Players spend money to plant crops and buy animals. They make that money back plus a profit when they harvest the plants and the animals. Each one has its own range of depth and sophistication. Most of the mobile farming sims are on the lighter, more casual side. However, there are some decent ones available as well. Here are the best farming games and simulators for Android!


Big Little Farmer

Price: Free to play

Big Little Farmer is a bit unique in the farming games genre. This is one of the few freemium games (in any genre) that also supports complete offline play. Otherwise, it appears to play quite a bit like Farmville. You dig up ground, plant crops, raise animals and harvest their milk and eggs, decoration and customize your farm, and sell your stuff for a profit. The controls are easy enough and there is a metric ton of content to unlock and play with. The basic premise does get repetitive after some time. However, that’s something you’ll find with pretty much all of the freemium farming simulators. Still, this is a good option for casual players.


Blocky Farm

Price: Free to play

Blocky Farm is a farm game with Minecraft style graphics. It also has a slightly more arcade game feel than most farming sims do. The game uses the classic mechanics like farming crops and such. However, you also get pets, customization elements, and more. You can also free-drive most of the vehicles if you want to. They help with stuff like crop harvesting, but it’s actually quite funny to see what kind of trouble you get into. Some other mechanics include fishing, pets, a changing weather system, offline game play support, and some NPCs in a nearby town. It looks simple and the arcade style makes the game feel inherently silly. However, it’s actually not half bad for a farming game.


Farming Simulator 20

Price: $5.99 with in-app purchases

The popular Farming Simulator franchise marches on with its 2020 release. The game is very much like its predecessors. You get a farm, grow stuff, harvest it, and sell it for profit. This game’s big draw are the vast array of machines you get to use, including over 100 vehicles from actual name brands. Additionally, you can take care of horses, enjoy the above average graphics (for this genre), and even drive the vehicles from the cockpit. This one runs for $5.99 with some optional in-app purchases. A new version of this comes out every year so if we don’t update this list in a while, check Google Play for the newer versions.


FarmVille 2: Country Escape

Price: Free to play

FarmVille 2: Country Escape is the closest you can get to reliving the classic FarmVille on Facebook days. The game takes a more arcade approach to the genre. You start out with a property and slowly build it up over time. You can grow all kinds of crops, craft all kinds of things, and unlock all kinds of customizations. The free to play elements play a much larger role than in previous iterations of the game, but it’s not bad as long as you don’t mind the long grind.


Harvest Moon: Light of Hope

Price: $14.99

Harvest Moon: Light of Hope is the latest Harvest Moon on mobile. It’s also available on the Nintendo Switch as well as Steam. The game isn’t too dissimilar from other Harvest Moon games. You grow crops, tend to your livestock, gather materials, mingle with the nearby townspeople, and more. The goal is to save and rebuild the town’s lighthouse. The mobile version of this game has a few more bugs than we would like. However, most players seem to like it anyway. We do highly recommend that you try this out within the refund time to make sure that it’s compatible with your device and that you’re happy with the performance. It costs a whopping $14.99, but it also has no in-app purchases. You can also try Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories, but it’s an even older, even more buggy game.

Hay Day

Price: Free to play

Hay Day is an insanely popular farming game from Supercell, makers of Clash of Clans, Clash Royale, and Brawl Stars. It’s actually a rather larger mobile farming game. You clean up the old farm, plant crops, tend to livestock, and unlock various buildings and other upgrades. There is also a town to explore, a roadside shop to run, a fishing mini-game, and you can even build your own town. It’s a massive experience with a ton of content to do. There is a reason this game has over 100 million downloads. That said, it is a freemium game and suffers from that freemium element a little bit. It’s otherwise quite good.


Minecraft

Price: $6.99 with in-app purchases

Minecraft may be a bit of a reach for us. You can do basically whatever you want in Minecraft. You can mine, you can craft, and you can do stuff like build, farm, fish, and raise animals. In fact, early game in survival mode requires at least some partial farming skills because you do need food to live. You can raise chickens for their eggs, plant various types of crops, and then craft all of that foodstuff into actual food items. Of course, all they actually do in-game is restore health and stave off starvation for a little while. Still, it’s a sizeable part of the game along with everything else. The mobile version of the game also works perfectly with the PC and Xbox One versions of the game so cross-platform support is also a good reason to try this one.


Stardew Valley

Price: $7.99

Stardew Valley is arguably the best farming simulator on mobile. It has all of the usual elements, including the ability to grow, harvest, and sell crops. However, the game adds some RPG elements along with a bunch of extras and mini-games. You can go into town and meet the townspeople, get married, engage in town events, go fishing, and more. The developers boast 50 hours of play and players get auto-saving, external controller support, and more. It runs for $7.99 with no additional in-app purchases. You can also play this one for free with Google Play Pass.


Township

Price: Free to play

Township is another low-key popular hybrid of a city-builder sim and a farming game. Players build a town, mine for resources, and manage your town as usual. You can also plant crops, raise livestock, and earn money for the town. Another big element is building a zoo where you keep all of the animals safe. It’s obviously a casual game. However, it’s one of the largest that we’ve ever seen. There are basically three mobile games mashed into a single title here and we think that’s why people like it. You won’t get bored with this one anytime soon. It is a freemium game, though, and has some free to play pitfalls. Otherwise, it’s an above average mobile gaming experience.


WeFarm

Price: Free to play

WeFarm is another arcade farming sim with a lot going for it. It’s newer than most of the farming games on the list and it shows. It starts out with the basic stuff. You start a farm, grow stuff, sell it, and expand. The game also includes side quests, social elements with your neighbors, and some exploration elements. There is quite a lot to do between the game mechanics and all of the stuff you can collect. It’s a FarmVille clone through and through, but it’s actually better in some ways.
