FrontierVille is the latest game from Zynga and it has made inroads in the Facebook gaming community and managed to add over 3.7 million users this past week alone. The game took many of the elements that make other Zynga games addictive and put them together to create, arguably, their best game yet!
Players enter the game as pioneers in the early century trying to make it on the frontiers of the new world. The general goal of the game is to live well and prosper on the frontiers, and in order to achieve that you will have to manage several tasks and goals.
Unlike other Zynga games that center around a single goal, whether it’s farming when it comes to Farmville or amassing power as is the case with Mafia Wars, FrontierVille requires the player to manage several goals. You will have to plant and harvest your crops, fight the pests and woodland creatures, you will be collecting items that will randomly appear once you complete an action and you’ll have to get married and take care of your virtual family and build your own town. And if that wasn’t enough, you will also be able to visit and establish relationships and trade with neighboring frontier towns and help friends completing their tasks and quests.
