Experience Points Needed To Level Up in Farm Town

By on Aug 10, 2009 in Facebook | 4 comments

Okay. I will do my best to make this my last article about Farm Town. I just couldn’t help myself, when there is still a lot to talk about this popular Facebook App. If you are one of those people wondering why it takes you so long to level up in higher levels, that’s because the experience points needed at that point are higher than at the lower levels. So far, the highest level is 34 which is a Green Wizard. That’s the only time you can buy a mansion. But all will start of course at level 1 with a 12 x 12 land to start with. Different experience points are needed at each level to progress, and certain features are unlocked once you reach certain levels. Here are the experience points to reach in advancing to the next level. For example, to reach level 4 from level 3, you just need 50 more experience points. 50 + 50 = 100. Apprentice or Level 4 is at 100 experience...

I can buy happiness but not people

By on Aug 10, 2009 in Facebook | 4 comments

I’ve read that sentence often while playing Metropolis, another Facebook App I came across. It’s a game to build your own city. The more people you have the more jobs get filled, the more you earn. Happiness may decrease though overtime if your citizens aren’t happy on the way you manage your city. But you can buy happiness by buying certain landmarks or creating entertainment. Well, there was one feature that allows other players to populate (give one citizen) your city or entertain, and they can only do one at a certain time. Since happiness can be bought and not people, most players in Metropolis prefer other players to populate their city rather than have their city entertained. Hence, you would often see: Don’t entertain. I can buy happiness but not people. Somehow, a phrase of that sentence is the opposite of a common saying, that money can’t buy...

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...

Stock Investing App on Facebook

By on Jul 14, 2009 in Facebook, Miscellaneous | 0 comments

I am into a lot of Facebook apps lately, if you have noticed–Typing Maniac, Farm Town, Mafia Wars, and Word Island. At the same time, I am also into investing books. So, I got curious if there is one app about investing that I could play in Facebook. Perhaps a virtual practice account in investing like the one I have in Investopedia.com. Luckily, there is a Facebook app! A stock investing simulator called kaChing, which uses the actual data in the US stock markets. So far, I like using kaChing app more than the virtual stocks account I have in Investopedia. You know why? Because I have $10,000,000 in the virtual portfolio which is a higher amount than the one I have in my Investopedia practice account. I can buy more stocks, and trade more here in kaChing....

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...
