Monsterz Revenge on the iPhone/iPod Touch, Ghost Harvest shares
similar aspects to the aforementioned game as players harvest a
variety of different ghosts. It should be noted that Ghost Harvest
is a "free" game, however if you wish to have premium items
available in the game or more specifically improve your gameplay,
these will incur a cost to the player.
It's great that EA
have released a free game but gamers should be weary with additional
purchases as they can rack up quite quickly if you are not careful.
However with that said, you can still play and enjoy Ghost Harvest
without spending a cent but there are are some very cool items you
can purchase though.
Your goal in Ghost
Harvest is basically to create your own cemetery in an almost Sim
City like fashion as you make plots for graves and then harvest
those pesky spirits. It's basically a farming social game that have
inundated Facebook and the iPhone/iPod Touch. With a variety of
different ghosts to harvest from singers to cowboys and soldiers to
name a few, each ghost has a "value" on them which then allows you
to expand your cemetery and purchase additional items. However just
like harvesting plants, you need to wait until the ghosts are ready
to be harvests.
your ghosts, there is a threat to them and these are the paparazzi
so you need to ensure that your souls are protected by placing
ghosts in your cemetery as protectors. For example, by placing a
nurse or a samurai ghost in your cemetery, this will help protect
your spirits from the paparazzi but you need to mix and match
because different enemies have their strengths and weaknesses, just
like your ghost protectors. It's a careful balance of strategy.
When the combat
begins which happens at timed intervals, it reminds me of Plants vs.
Zombies as you setup your defences and attack the enemies in tower
defence fashion. Combat is fun but is a little limited in the grand
scheme of things and thankfully there are plenty of mini-games and
quests to be found along the way to spice up the gameplay.
title is quite a spooky looking game, albeit quite cartoony but
suits the gameplay perfectly. Add in a scary sounding musical score
and lots of creepy noises and Ghost Harvest comes together rather
In conclusion, Ghost
Harvey will definitely waste your time but that's the goal of these
addictive games. So if you're looking for something different and a
combination of social game meets tower defence, than you really
check out this and best of all, it's "free"... sort of.
