Filipinos! This is based from the data I have collected through Google Trends. The data shows a percentage or normalized number of how many people have searched “Farmville” in Google and are ranked according to countries. This does not include those who have played Farmville directly to their Facebook account, and did not need to search Farmville in Google. So having said that, the top 10 countries who have still interest in searching Farmville in Google are: Philippines Portugal Turkey Romania India Mexico Italy United States Ireland...

Ragnarok Online Emoticons and Farm Town

By on Jul 18, 2009 in Facebook, Games | 2 comments

Did you know I used to play Ragnarok Online? It is an multiplayer online role-playing game from South Korea. Yeah, I’ve been addicted to it in 2005 that even in my dreams I was playing Ragnarok. One time, I answered a phone call while I was half asleep. The phone was ringing just right above my head, so I grabbed it, and said hello as usual. However, I mumbled about ragnarok items after. Only when my caller asked me “What are you talking about Reah? What’s a muffler?” that I got back to my senses. Anyway, while waiting in Farm Town’s marketplace last week, I remembered the emoticons in Ragnarok Online. Especially the crying emoticon. It would be fun if farmers in Farm Town could show a crying emoticon if they are pleading for a job, or a thanks emoticon when they get hired. For me, emoticons was one of the best things in Ragnarok aside from the real game....

Cost of Upgrading Your Land In Farm Town

By on Jul 16, 2009 in Facebook, Games | 6 comments

The initial land’s size in Farm Town is 12 x 12. This is enough land when you are starting the game, but as you reach higher levels where more experience points are needed to level up, 12 x 12 land size may not help you anymore. Instead, you may want to upgrade your land so you have more space to plow fields, plant crops, and put new decorations on your farm. But you can only start upgrading your land when you have reached level 15.  So it is best to know while you are at a lower level than 15 how much it costs to upgrade your land, so you can save coins for it. Here’s the sizes and costs. Level 15 – 14 x 14 size – 20,000 coins Level 17 – 16 x 16 size – 25,000 coins Level 19 –  18 x 18 size – 30,000 coins Level 21 – 20 x 20 size – 35,000 coins Level 23 – 22 x 22 size – 40,000 coins Level 25 – 24 x 24 size...

Typing Games on Facebook

You might have tried playing Typing Maniac in Facebook but your computer might not be able to support the Flash game, or it will not load. I have exeprienced that same problem with my old desktop computer. I have upgraded my flash but my screen still sometimes freezes because of the low specs of my desktop. I got frustrated with it so I ended up playing the game again with the laptop. I want to use the keyboard on my desktop though in typing games, so I tried to find other typing games in Facebook that I could play with my old desktop. And I found some. Typing Monster – This App has an old-school design, incomparable to Typing Maniac. The good thing about it though is you are going to type a paragraph, which combines uppercase letters and punctiation marks, while numbers are in a bomb. You should type the numbers as soon as they appear. Of course if the bomb explodes you will...

Facebook Typing Maniac

By on Jul 11, 2009 in Facebook, Games | 32 comments

Yeah, I have a lot of free time lately that I can even play a lot of Facebook Apps and computer games. Aside from Farm Town and Mahjong Titans, I am also into Typing Maniac in Facebook. To type fast and accurate is one of the skills I have been trying to perfect eversince I got my own computer. I used to practice with Typing games that I downloaded for free online. So when I saw one of my Facebook friends news feed saying she was playing Typing Maniac, I was excited to try the game. Typing Maniac has a cool game interface, and just like othe typing games, the ability to type fast and accurate will help you advance in the game, and get high scores of course. The speed goes faster, and words get longer when level increases, but you can get through this challenge with the help of the bonus tiles: Fire, Ice, Slow, and Wind. You can get the bonus tiles by typing the words in the colored...

The New Crops in Farm Town, and Hiring Someone to Plow

By on Jul 10, 2009 in Facebook, Games | 13 comments

With six new crops laid out today in Farm Town, the Facebook App has become even more exciting. For sure, you already have seen these  crops when you clicked on the store earlier this day. These are cotton, pineapple, blueberry, pepper, carrot, and raspberry. Cotton is a 4-day crop, but cheaper than pumpkin. Pineapple and blueberry are 3-day crops, while pepper and carrot can be harvested in 2 days. The best among these new crops though is the raspberry, which can be harvested in 2 hours, lesser hours than if you have harvested grapes. As long as you have time to tend it, raspberry had replaced grapes as the top crop to plant if you want to gain experience points faster in Farm Town. It could have been better if one of the new crops is an 8-hour or 10-hour crop. Hire to Plow The six new crops isn’t just the big news today in Farm Town. You might even consider this as the greatest...
