Out of the blue, you receive a letter from your granduncle Fred, offering you the change you’ve been yearning for. He’s had enough of running the family orchard and is bequeathing it to you. It’s time to head down to the country and get your hands dirty, making juices, pies, jellies, and more in Orchard!

Hire workers and help increase their farming, building and woodcutting skills. Build homes for them to live in while they service your growing orchard.

    Orchard does have a certain Zen-like appeal, but as far as providing challenges and rewards that keep gamers coming back, it's really lacking. The design puts only the most minor obstacles in the way of the player's success, so solving each level is more a matter of just going through the motions until you sell the right number of items to meet the level goals.
