Lol, obviously :P But it's a popular genre that's very under-represented on iOS so they tend to be popular. Astro Ranch and Castaway Paradise and there only others I can think of atm.

after getting a copy from a friend (thank god its free..) I quickly learned as I entered that it looks acts and starts up exactly and I mean exactly like another game Pocketz HD from the same makers of this Harvest Crossing HD .. the only thing thats different is that there is no energy in this one yesss finnally they got rid of that stupid system.. and yes I played Pocketz I had it, but after playing this Harvest Crossing with the no energy system I wouldn't go back to Pocketz..
only thing that bugs me I get no vistors (you need this npcs for quests -_-)
and rarely anyone plays this version.. COME ON PEOPLE! no energy at all same game as Pocketz free so im sure going online and searching around maybe could bring luck to getting this.. or ask a friend I do not know but this is waaay better then
pocketz without any energy lock its fun to play!

Well I'm in NZ and it ain't here.
Judging by how this looks I would recommend getting Country Life while you wait.
Or, you know, do what I do and play Harvest Moon on GBA4IOS.

It is indeed in NZ as of last night. It's cute but seems like it's taken many of it's elements from popular farming games on ios not the two games it references in it's title. The layout of the farm, the visitors, the planting mechanic, the sale board - felt like I was playing another game but with different graphics.

There are different places to explore and it's in portrait mode which is a nice handy switch though. I am hoping the visiting other places turns out to be what differentiates this game from the others.

I've only played a few minutes and have been able to gain 6 levels but that's how all these games go - increase a lot at first and then it will take some time.
