QUALITY
 

BEAST FARMER is a free and relatively simple pet monster simulator that allows players to watch a “swamp chicken” develop through three stages of life. Players can feed it and swipe over it with our fingers to make it perform tricks like flips, playing dead, spitting fire, and expelling gas, or try a quartet of simple mini-games, such as hatching eggs and catching flying bugs for food. It offers high-quality 3D animations of the beasts, but suffers in terms of control, especially in one platformer-style mini-game that involves ramming enemies and jumping over gaps. It’s a modestly entertaining distraction but doesn't have any key elements to keep players coming back over time.
