GameZone writes: "Harvest Moon is known for producing insanely addictive simulation gameplay. But did you ever think you'd see the day when the franchise would be turned into a puzzler? That's just what happened with Puzzle de Harvest Moon, as well as the newest title, Harvest Moon: Frantic Farming, produced specifically for Nintendo DS.
"We are hoping to give players a new way to experience the Harvest Moon Universe by offering a hybrid of a Harvest Moon game and a puzzle game," said Graham Markay, Vice President of Operations and Project Manager for Harvest Moon: Frantic Farming. "We have always believed that a lot of the activities in the traditional Harvest Moon games, such as harvesting crops, would lend themselves well to a puzzle game. This isn't really a development shift, but more of a development expansion."
