From the people behind the successful Gardenscapes and Homescapes comes another equally entertaining and highly addictive casual game. Township is one of the most exciting games offered by Playrix. Interestingly, the game actually came first before Gardenscapes and was made initially available via Facebook. It eventually ventured into mobile devices which have been downloaded more than 100 million times. Township, as what the title of the game connotes, is a city-building game which involves various activities such as farming, poultry, and town management. The goal is to make your town grow by increasing its population, building numerous commercial establishments, gathering abundant resources and many more.
Unlike Gardenscapes and Homescapes, Township is not a tile-matching adventure. The game is more likely to be compared with some popular city-building and farming games like Supercell’s Hay Day, Zynga’s Farmville or GoodGame’s Big Farm. Much like the aforementioned games, Township starts off by planting and harvesting crops. Basically, these will serve as the main resources in order to produce various products. As soon as you start earning money, you will be asked to build different production buildings. Milk, for instance, can be turned to various dairy products such as cheese while wheat and corn can be used to produce different kinds of bread.
Like many other city-building games, Township is a progressive casual game that can run for a very long period of time. The development will progress continously until you managed to turn your town into a metropolis. Besides farming and manufacturing, you will also be asked to manage the town population and to keep your people happy. You will be asked to build schools, hospitals, police station and many more. Eventually, you will participate in various events such as cooking competition and many others.
This Game will Keep You Busy
If you are looking for a game with commendable longevity, Township is definitely a perfect candidate. The game will surely keep you busy as it offers a lot of areas to explore. It is more than just a farming game and is absolutely not just your typical city building adventure. There is definitely a lot of areas to explore and it requires players to put a lot of dedication in order to progress fruitfully. Although the game doesn’t have a Main Quest system to follow, the game still has a flow that you should do in a sequential manner.
For example, Milk is produced by cows in the Cowshed but in order to get Milk, you must feed the cows with Feed. Feeds, on the other hand, can be produced from the Feed Mill which requires crops in order to be produced. To top it all, the game also follows a Level system. You earn experience points for every successful action you make and if you earned enough, you will gain a new level. Reaching a new level allows you to unlock more facilities and more production buildings.
Keeping Population Happy, Trade and Multiplayer
In order to grow your town into a city, it is very important to keep your eye on your increasing population. Be mindful that you cannot simply construct a building because you need to meet the required amount of population. In order to do so, you need to build residential houses. You are also responsible for keeping your people happy. You must construct public buildings like schools and parks to keep your population in a great mood. Construction, by the way, requires you to trade. Through Train Trading system, you can gather special building materials that you need to complete the construction.
The Multiplayer system in Township can be accessed if you managed to connect the game to your Facebook account. This allows you to visit your friend’s town and help them with their construction or production needs and the same thing can be done to your own town. Special events will also arrive from time to time which allows you to win special and limited-edition items.
Township is truly a colorful and entertaining city-building game. It’s generally fun, simple and undeniably addictive. The game has remarkable longevity and is also constantly being updated which adds great and entertaining special and sometimes, seasonal events that players can enjoy. Graphics are equally impressive and it is not really surprising as Playrix never failed to provide us some amazing abd visually stunning games. Currently, the game is available for both Android and iOS devices and you can download Township on your mobile for free. Have fun!
