Destineer Ships 'John Deere: Harvest in the Heartland' for Nintendo DS
Adding to its popular lifestyle lineup of John Deere games that have already sold more than a half a million units, Destineer today announced it has shipped John Deere: Harvest in the Heartland, a "hands-on" real-time farming game for the Nintendo DS. From soil to sustenance, John Deere: Harvest in the Heartland challenges players to create and maintain a fully functioning farm.
Through an intuitive Touch Screen interface, players use the Nintendo DS stylus to work the land, raise livestock, pick crops, milk cows, and more to earn cash and improve the farm by purchasing land, livestock, and authentic John Deere equipment. However, there is no such thing as a successful "lazy farmer" and players who neglect their farm and will reap what they sow as they watch their farm and crops turn to dust.
Design & Detail: use the touch screen and stylus to layout the locations of fields and buildings. Use the top screen to monitor the farm via the mini-map and check on the status of crops and livestock with the Query Tool. .
Hands-On Farming: clear land, plant and harvest crops, and drive authentic John Deere equipment. Paint buildings and create a unique logo for the farm which identifies players at the Commodities Market. Feed, care for, and harvest products from the animals through a variety of fun and intuitive stylus actions.
The Commodities Market and County Fair: raise crops and livestock for sale at the daily Commodities Market. Reinvest money earned from the sale of crops and animal products to upgrade John Deere equipment and make the farm more efficient and profitable. Or, enter your products and livestock in "Best of" contests at the County Fair for prizes and fame.
John Deere: Harvest in the Heartland is available now for $29.99.
