If you play games on Facebook, have you seen the new Tail Towns Friends?
About Tail Towns Friends:
Tail Towns Friens is a free-play Facebook game. Brought to you by the makers of the wildly-popular Webkinz, Ganz has created an enchanted world of mystery, rich with tales of intrigue, treachery and forbidden love just for you grown-ups.
Tail Towns Friends offers players drama and juicy, soap opera-inspired storylines and the photo-realistic art allows players to become landscape artists to create the home and garden of their dreams.
Here is what you can enjoy while playing:
- Players help friends and supply city businesses amidst unfolding tales of soapy drama
- The ability to create the ultimate landscaped country getaway
- Intertwining storylines, featuring cinematics and voice-acting
Tail Towns Friends also delivers a total gaming experience with custom-designed collectible fully hand-painted beautifully crafted figurines, bridging the real world with the virtual one.
What’s really cool is they also have actual figurines to go along with the game – with special codes to unlock special items. I received the ultra cool Teacher figurine:
Register Tail Towns Friends figurine to unlock the character’s exclusive storyline and “Secret Diary Goals,” which gives players insight into his/her life. Each figurine rewards users with an exclusive specialty virtual item as well. Registering other collectible figures’ secret codes unlocks even more Secret Diary Goals and exclusive items. The figurines are not only a great addition to the game, but also stand alone as a wonderful addition to any collector’s shelves.
While I love playing games on my computer, I’m not big on playing the ones on Facebook – I think part of that is I feel like I fail my friends when they need help advancing in their games. Not to mention the excessive time suck they can be, and I would feel much guiltier than I do about how messy the house has become because of my already overabundant online time.
I did give this game a try, though – and really enjoyed it. There seems to be less stress to get things done, and having a game that’s more of a relaxed mode like that is more my style. Or speed. Or lack of speed. Whatever.
It was fun going around and meeting all the unique characters – or at least the ones I’ve met so far from what I’ve played. There are still so many more to meet, and more areas to explore. The only problem I ran into was it seemed to be a little wonky when I was performing tasks – when I’d select something to move it on the screen, my mouse cursor and object I’d selected would jump all over the screen and was difficult to place.
It could be my computer, though, I’m waiting for HP to send me a box to ship it to them to fix a different problem. I’ll try it again after my computer comes back to see if it does make a difference.
Bottom line is it’s a cute and enjoyable game, and definitely one of the few I would recommend. Besides, it would be fun to collect all the collectible figurines – Princess Nagger is already adding her two-cents on which ones we should get next.
