Farm Frenzy 3, from Alawar and converted to Minis by SPL, is a bit misleading because it’s actually the fourth Farm Frenzy game released as a Mini. In a way though, it’s almost several Farm Frenzy games in one. Rather than simply having one farm with one theme, the game has five separate ones, all [...]
