Sanuku: thanks for the video. How are the controls? Are they tilt only?

I'm not sure if this is from the same devs who made the PC version but as far as I know this is one of the biggest and most selling simulators in Europe.

Yes, it's Astragon. They make all kinds of simulators for PC. They're pretty much the market leader in crappy simulators (at least in Germany) because nobody else wants to be in that niche. They have a delivery truck simulator, a forklift simulator, a waste collection simulator, a public transport driving simulator, and some worse ones. The farming simulator that this is a port of is one of the more successful ones, I guess more people are interested in runnig a farm than working in waste collection.

Btw. I laught at them, but the reason I can do that is that they have a shelf dedicated to their simulators at each of the electronics stores I go to. Only place that doesn't sell their simulators around here is Gamestop.

Default Surprised!

This is much better than expected. I've played it some with my son, and we both enjoy it. It's a bit dissapointing that you have to cash out a couple of more dollars to get the high end machines. But I think it might be worth it if you like these kind of games.

Thanks for the impressions illwill. Are touch controls available or only tilt?

Only tilt controls. This is basically a driving simulator for farming machinery. Almost all of your time is spent either driving around the fields or to various places on the map to sell corn, get fuel, grains, water etc. All work and no play, so to speak. Only recommended for fans of the genre.

Thanks! I'll add it to AppShopper while I wait for touch controls to hopefully be added.
