Little Farm, a farm-fresh matching game from Dallas-based casual game developer MumboJumbo, recently launched as a Facebook application. The flash-based version of the game operates under the same mechanic as the full-version of the PC game.
In Little Farm, players click on a patch of the farm field and drag out the mouse to form a rectangle that has four patches of the same color in each corner. When the mouse is released, the rectangle is watered and the plants within it are harvested. Little Farm first debuted for digital download in May.
"We are very excited to launch our first application for Facebook. Social networks are changing the face of casual games by bringing great games like Little Farm to the users rather than leaving it up to users to find us," said Robert Einspruch, director of online business for MumboJumbo.
The Little Farm application can be added to any Facebook profile by visiting http://apps.facebook.com/littlefarm. Players can invite friends and compare their scores through the application.
Little Farm is also launching at retailers nationwide this month. It's rated ‘E' for Everyone and the full version can be purchased for $19.99.
