It's basically a Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town clone but with ugly art.

Title
The game is fantastic, especially to play with your significant others. The soundtrack is great. The repetitiveness is welcomed because it makes the game cosy and relaxing. It teaches me how to play in a relaxed, not min-max way, which forces me to be laid back and take the game in slowly.
The only problem I have is that it's hard to play without the wiki. You could be fishing for something and only after realise you can fish them only during rain, so you basically wasted a week fishing for something you can't catch. And there are many instances of it sadly.

Stardew Valley is such a relaxing play. A mix of beautiful graphics filled with character and charm, a soothing soundtrack, and of course, smooth gameplay that allows you to move at your own pace, makes this a really great, calming game.

Title
Sick of life in the urban asphalt drone prison? Want to escape it all? Inherit a relatives farm!! Sound familiar?

Stardew Valley is taking upon a task (knowingly or not) that it will be the result of a fusion of:
Animal Crossing
Harvest Moon
Rune Factory

Stardew Valley removes and expands on features that it takes inspiration from and that's what makes this fusion of games a certain kind of special. All of the moments with the NPCs feel special and powerful, hardly anything they say is of little value, you can speak to them a minimum amount of times per day, but what they say will very likely have you wanting more. Scattered around the game there are eco-conscious statements and lots of things with deeper meaning. Although its audience can stretch to even the youth, the deeper statements can be digested by the older players quite easily! Conservation is a topic covered, and so is an ENVIRONMENTAL THREATENING CORPORATION. Which you are obligated to weigh on during the course of game. Surprisingly enough, farming isn’t entirely mandatory in this game! Gaining gold is a job spread among the varying skills that you can hone. Want to gain 90% of your money fishing? you can do that! Want to gain 90% of your money dungeon-crawling? you can do that! etc.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Comfy
This game is one of those games that, if you could play it on a mobile device, in a tent wrapped in pillows & bedsheets, where its snowing/raining outside, you would be at maximum 100% comfiness that a human could perceive.

Music
The music is alright, but if you know fitting *chill* artists, it’d probably be better to substitute them here because I felt that the OST gets stale quickly.

SFX
The sounds are very beautiful across the board, aside from that fly in the higher levels of the mine.

Story
Very engaging, very cool, with a new concept of it’s own brought to the table.

Characters
The characters have stories that will pull anyone semi-curious in like a magnet, befriending them expands what you know of them and gives you access to their rooms.

Customization
Despite lacking complexity, the customization is quite good, actually. You can position buildings and dress your character somewhat decently.

Complexity
This is the games weakest point, if you remember Animal Crossing GameCube, you’ll remember such a vast amount of collectibles + items + furniture (interact-able), and in Harvest Moon AWL Gamecube, you’ll remember such a vast amount of crops (hybrids/fusions) with all the livestock types and kinds + unique acquired tools. These huge features are lacking (at the moment of writing this) and as such, retain the complexity of SV.

Random Environment Generation
Another weak point of SV, if you’re looking for this feature, you’re playing/looking to play the wrong game. The single star is for the simple dungeon crawling feature.

    Getting this for Android was a good idea. Despite any issues it might have, it's easily better than most games I have played on the platform in ages and suitable for the kind of gaming I do on my phone anyway.
