Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon
Deciding the best way to take the game into a new realm was to latterly take the game into a new realm, Natsume put together two games for each handheld system (the DS & the PSP) that took the game into a fantasy ďpastĒ as well as the future.
This version, Innocent Life, takes the game into a possible future of the Harvest Moon world (and a farflung colony world that needs your help). Image 1 of 5. Click to enlarge
The farming is futuristic, the world is futuristic, and oh dear god Talk Radio in Grand Theft Auto : Vice City turned out to be so

In this game you are future storyline clichť number 115, in that you are a newly made robot human that was made to save this island from disaster. Once upon a time two warring groups lived on the island, and one eventually was wiped out (but not before cursing the land to make it infertile and ďsealedĒ from sustaining food life). Before too long everything became automated and the need to do traditional farming of old was long forgottenÖ until now. You are brought in to bring back the traditional farming ways of old, with all the bells and whistles of the here and now futureÖ and also with none of the human love and compassion of the original Harvest Moon world.
So at what point did Natsume think it appropriate (let alone agreeable by us the Harvest Moon playing community) to replace the heart and soul of a good Harvest Moon game and replace it with a whole bunch of new trinkets Image 2 of 5. Click to enlarge

Farming is fresh and new, bright and innovative with a ton of new gizmos and tools and a mini side quest to find crystals which can unseal plots of land on your large temple/farm (and thus open the paths to new areas of the temple and the island itself allowing you to find new challenges, mini quests, and crystals to unseal more land). Still, with all this unsealing and exploration, it would be nice if this game wasnít so soul wearying mind numbingly dreary. Even with all the upgrades you end up losing things (you canít do your own cooking anymore, fishing is no longer fun as you must catch and release all fish meaning you canít raise money by fishing, you canít get married anymore it seems though I heard a rumor once there might be a marriage option (but rumor only), and thereís no more festivals that do anything Image 3 of 5.

Each day is a routine of drudgery and dulldom that doesnít change except for outings to find crystals and other tools youíll need to advance, which is in itself dull (which is the one major problem with this game). For all the bells and whistles and tech they crammed into this game to make farming ďfreshĒ, the loss of all the heart and souls of this game is too much to bear in exchange.
Thatís why I would rather play the tride and true favorite port ďHarvest Moon : Boy & GirlĒ (reviving once again Harvest Moon : Back To Nature on the PSP) than this game. Iíd rather play a game thatís fun instead of this slow march to sleepÖ but if you are a die hard Harvest Moon fan and must play EVERY Harvest Moon in existence (including the new experiment on spin-offs) then youíll be playing this no matter what I say to you about itÖ just play it in bites as too much of Innocent Life is not a good thing.
Innocent Life : A Futuristic Harvest Moon manages to locate 3 crystals out of 5.
Puzzle Quest: Galactrixď
Like any good RPG youíll find all the requirements for total immersion into the titleís sci-fi world, though I do have to admit...
