The Game:
If you’re looking for a frantic farming game, you can look no further than the Farm Frenzy series. These games have a good reputation for their fast-paced time management game play, and Farm Frenzy 3: American Pie is no exception.

While Farm Frenzy 3 starts off in Africa and takes you around the globe to more exotic farming locations, Farm Frenzy 3: American Pie stays right in the USA and has you farming with robots. With the interest rate on the mortgage constantly increasing, the farm back home is in trouble. The story is sketchy and light on details and serves mostly as a framework for the new elements introduced into the game.

If you already have Farm Frenzy 3, you might be disappointed with the overlaps in Farm Frenzy 3: American Pie. I guess this is why Alawar didn’t call the game Farm Frenzy 4. Most of the upgrades are exactly the same, including the helicopter that drops goods onto the playing field, and the various farm machines like the incubator and sewing factory and cake maker. In fact, the only real difference is the American vs. International theme, and the addition of robots instead of exotic animals. That said, Farm Frenzy 3: American Pie is addictive from the start, so fans shouldn’t be afraid to try it out.

To play, you buy animals, trap predators, and gather products like eggs and wool and milk. You can use the animal products you gather to put into machines, and these machines make new goods. For example, you can put eggs through a machine to make powdered eggs. You can then use powdered eggs in another machine to make cookies, and then combine those cookies together with flour in order to make cake.

Unlike Farm Frenzy – Pizza Party, which had huge combinations to remember, Farm Frenzy 3: American Pie (like Farm Frenzy 3) involves simple two- or three-ingredient combinations. You can see what’s needed by hovering your mouse cursor over any machine.

Predators mean trouble, just like in all the other Farm Frenzy games. Bears drop onto the playing field and toss away animals. If you have a dog, he can help get rid of these pesky pests for you, but he makes the ultimate sacrifice. Unlike earlier games, the dogs do not explode. That’s kind of good, since it was a little disturbing. This time they just roll off in a cloud of dust. Just like in earlier games, you can dress-up captured bears for a huge profit.
Farm-Frenzy-004

Farm-Frenzy-005
It’s worth mentioning that there are a lot less animals than there were in Farm Frenzy 3. In American Pie, all you get are turkeys, sheep, and cows. Sure, there are the dogs and cats and bears, but you don’t get to raise those. There are none of the cool animals from Farm Frenzy 3, like jaguars or buffaloes or ostriches, which is kind of a disappointment.

However, the biggest new twist in this version is the addition of robots. They’re really, really expensive, costing a whopping $50,000 (vs. $10,000 for a cow). They only show up halfway through the game, so expect to play for a dozen hours before encountering one. Robots consume fuel and mine ore. After moving around the screen for a short while, the robot will stop working. You can buy more fuel for them by using your helicopter. Unlike many items, you can’t gather these yourself, and need to wait for the robot to gather them. The ore appears on your screen like any other resource when the robot is working and can earn you major cash. Otherwise, robots behave much like other farm animals.

For those of you who don’t like pressure, you can still complete a level even if you go over the time limit. What’s neat is that the difficulty level is completely flexible. If you’re a slower player, you can replay older levels to earn additional upgrades, which will make beating the levels a bit easier. However, advanced players will undoubtedly be challenged if they try to aim for an expert score. It’s tough to earn a gold trophy, even from the very beginning, which gives the game good replay value.
Farm-Frenzy-006

Farm-Frenzy-007

Aside from being addictive, another factor in the game’s favour is the length. Even if you don’t replay levels, you can expect nearly two dozen hours of gameplay. When you combine that with the new endless play mode, plus replaying rounds to earn a better score…well, it’s virtually endless.

A fair warning here…this game will make your hand hurt. There’s some serious clicking involved, and it’s completely addictive once you get started, so be prepared to take hand-stretching breaks.

Conclusion:

Farm Frenzy 3: American Pie is the fifth game in the franchise, with 12 games so far. I beta tested all of them up to this particular one and it was at this point I stopped buying them because to me they were all the same game but with a re skin job done on them - okay there are new elements added to each one, but the core game play is exactly the same with little variation. The new addition to American Pie is the use of robots. The first game in the series was brilliant and added so much to the Time Management genre. Sadly, the latest ones just feel like copies of copies. Personally, I didn't enjoy playing this version, simply because I didn't feel it brough anything new to the series. To get as far as the robots you had to play for several hours.

That said, if you've not played many of this series and especially if you enjoy farming games and time management games, you'll probably love this. It's well constructed and worth downloading. If you've played all the previous giveaways of the Farm Frenzy series this won't add anything new.
Scoring:
The following scores are my own 'unbiased' opinion. Of most Time Management games, the Farm Frenzy franchise is about the only TM game I actually enjoyed playing, especially the first three or four in the series. I do think later versions because a little tedious as the game play remained basically the same with a fresh coat of paint, still, as said above, it's a decent game and if you've not played any Farm Frenzy for a while, this will scratch that itch. :)

Whiterabbit-uk,

Notes on Security
I scanned a zipped copy of the installed game using Virus Total and it found 2 hits (VBA32 & Yandex) from 62 antimalware engines. These two are amongst only several antimalware suites that often tag TooMKY and other free game site games compared to better known and more reliable antimalware engines, so it's very likely to be a false positive: so, it's very likely to be a false positive.

You can see the results of the scan HERE

The downloaded executable 'may' include some low-level adware that opens your browser to TooMKY Games home page after the game has installed and may place some shortcuts onto your desktop; these can be safely deleted once the game has installed.

The installation does NOT inject any malware into your system. When your browser is opened to TooMKY Games home page following the games installation, it earns TooMKY Games some money, part of which is given to the developer of the game for allowing the game to be given away free. The giveaway version of TooMKY games version has had most of the adware disabled.

Whiterabbit-uk,

Security Continued
Personally, I've never had any issues with any of Toomky Games; however, if you're still not convinced of the games efficacy and want to be absolutely sure that the game is safe to install, please use a sandbox program to check that the game is safe to install before installing it to your C drive or other drives on your computer (assuming you have more than one drive).
There are free sandbox programs such as Sanboxie, GeSWall, BitBox, Windows Sandbox, Bufferzone (a six month commercial license was given away via the applications side of the project back in December 2009 HERE), Shadowzone, as well as others. (You'll find them all on the same page from Techwhoop.

I don't usually care for TM games but the Farm Frenzy series has a very friendly approach to introducing those who are new to it without overwhelming terminology or play mechanics that may confuse some.

I've played several games of this variety and I usually give up after time time because I just can't complete the scenario. It's also got good graphics for a PC game and that makes it even more engaging to play.

I'd say that you should get today's game because there is lots of fun to be had within this title and the other ones as well.

This is a fast pace time management game where you have to complete tasks to win. It works well on windows 11. There is one thing that annoys me in playing the game is when you are clicking to capture the bear it is hard to avoid wasting the water and growing more grass. Its a good tm game though.
