Hay Day is a freemium mobile farming game developed and published by Supercell. Hay Day was released for iOS on June 21, 2012 and Android on November 20, 2013.[1] According to a 2013 report, Supercell earned $30 million a month from Hay Day and Clash of Clans, another game made by Supercell.[2] In 2013, Hay Day was the 4th highest game in revenue generated.[3]

Plot and gameplay[edit]

The player's uncle is unable to take care of his farm any more, so he hands over the responsibility of caring for the farm to the player. The game starts with a scarecrow teaching the player about harvesting wheat.

By selling goods, the player earns coins, used to buy production buildings and decoration items, and experience points (XP), used to level up. Players form into "neighborhoods" in which members can assist each other when in need and use a chat function.

Reception[edit]

Gamezebo gave it 4/5, noting its similarity to Farmville and praising the graphics.[4] Pocket Gamer gave it a bronze award.[5]
