Farming video games are some of the most-popular titles on both gaming consoles and mobile but many of them require a consistent internet connection to play.

Here are eight of the best farm games to play offline on mobile and console.

Chucklefish

What We Like

  • Lots of gameplay variety for players to experience.

  • Retro art style looks great on modern consoles.

What We Don't Like

  • Some of the sidequest activities are very boring and repetitive.

  • The crafting and gameplay mechanics introduced later in the game will be too hard for junior players.

Stardew Valley is an incredibly popular farming game on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the Nintendo Switch. It features an old-school art style that makes it look like a game from the 90s but contains loads of content and that will keep gamers of all ages entertained for a very long time.

In Stardew Valley, players must manage their farm's crops and animals all while building relationships with their neighbors and, potentially, even starting a family with one of them.

Simplest Offline Farming Game: Tiny Pixel Farm

 Game Start

What We Like

  • Single-screen gameplay makes it very easy to manage without feeling overwhelmed.

  • Farm visitors are a fun addition that's not found in many other farming games.

What We Don't Like

  • The streamlined gameplay can be a bit confusing in the beginning.

  • The art style may not appeal to everyone.

Tiny Pixel Farm is the farming video game for gamers who are tired of all the pinching, zooming, and scrolling required in other titles just to see all of their digital farm, its tasks, and its items. In Tiny Pixel Farm, the entire farm is shown on one screen allowing everything to be viewed all at once.

This design decision makes the game much more approachable than its rivals yet doesn't lack any of their functionality with the usual crops and animals tasks still being present in addition to a marketplace and even farm visitors to take care of.

Best Offline Farming Game for Windows 10: FarmVille 2: Country Escape

FarmVille 2: Country Escape offline farm video game.

 Zynga

What We Like

  • Available on iOS, Android, and Windows tablets.

  • Loads of content to keep players engaged all year.

What We Don't Like

  • The character designs looks a little dated.

  • Lots of in-app microtransactions starting at $1.

FarmVille 2: Country Escape takes everything from the first two Farmville video games and brings it to mobile with the same addictive gameplay and a new farm setting alongside an ocean. With Country Escape, players get the chance to manage a traditional farm by planting crops, raising animals, cooking homemade recipes, and exploring the area around their home. There's even a basic story to keep players engaged beyond the numerous farming tasks.

FarmVille 2: Country Escape is available for iOS and Android devices but is also downloadable on Windows Phones and Windows computers and tablets running Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.

Freshest Offline Farming Game: Blocky Farm

Blocky Farm offline farm video game.

Jet Toast

What We Like

  • A cool art style that will appeal to Minecraft gamers.

  • Additional gameplay options beyond the traditional farming actions.

What We Don't Like

  • Older players may miss the visual details seen in other titles.

  • In-game advertising detracts from overall enjoyment.

While a lot of farming video games tend to look and play quite similarly, Blocky Farm tries something different with a fresh 3D graphics engine that looks more like a Minecraft or Crossy Road game than a traditional farming tycoon title.

Blocky Farm features all of the expected farming gameplay mechanics like planting crops, harvesting them, and looking after animals but it also spices things up with proper driving controls for the tractor as well as the chance to go fishing.

Most-Realistic Farm Video Game: Farming Simulator

Farming Simulator 19 offline farm video game.

 Focus Home Interactive

What We Like

  • A great game to teach kids about the real workings of a farm.

  • Loads of depth for gamers who are into farming machinery.

What We Don't Like

  • Great for farming enthusiasts but may bore casual gamers.

  • The focus on machinery isn't for everyone.

The Farming Simulator video game series is renowned for its realistic approach to managing a farm. The games boast true-to-life graphics, real-world vehicles and machinery, and expansive properties set within North America and Europe to manage.

The Farming Simulator 15, 17, and 19 games are available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, while Farming Simulator 16 and 18 can also be found on PC in addition to iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. In general, the newer the individual game, the better the graphics and more features it will have, however, the games aren't too different from each other despite the incremental improvements. The Farming Simulator video game on the Nintendo Switch is a blend of features from several games.

Coolest Free Offline Farming Game: Monster Farm

Monster Farm offline farming video game.

 Foranj

What We Like

  • An original take on the farming video game genre.

  • The cute character designs won't scare young gamers.

What We Don't Like

  • Game can run a bit slowly on older smartphones and tablets.

  • The tutorials are a bit overwhelming at first.

Monster Farm is a farming game for iOS and Android tablets and smartphones that revolves around a kind of Halloween-type of town instead of the typical farmland with cows and sheep. Players can expand their spooky town by constructing new buildings such as a haunted mansion or tower and planting magical plants like jack-o-lanterns and poisoned apples.

Monster Farm features very simply touch controls and the family-friendly portrayal of supernatural characters and monsters will especially appeal to young fans of the hit Monster High cartoon and toy franchise.

Best Offline Farming Game for Girls: Fairy Farm

Fairy Farm offline farming video game.

 Game Garden

What We Like

  • A farming game that will appeal to those bored by normal farm animals.

  • The colorful characters will entertain younger players.

What We Don't Like

  • Players are encouraged to purchase in-game currency to speed up tasks ($1 to $150).

  • Game contains frequent advertisements.

Fairy Farm is the ideal farming game for girls and boys who are fans of cartoon series like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Care Bears. Instead of the typical farmer character, players take control of wizards who use their magical farming abilities to grow magical plants and create mythological creatures such as unicorns, dragons, mermaids, pegasi, and fire spirits.

Gameplay consists of the predictable task-wait-build mechanic that's popular with most other mobile farming games but the system works and Fairy Farm's unique spin on the genre helps it appeal to an audience that usually wouldn't be interested.

Best Offline Christmas Farming Game: Farm Snow

Farm Snow Christmas farming video game.

 Foranj

What We Like

  • Great use of Christmas sound effects, music, and graphics.

  • Very easy to pick up and play for most mobile gamers.

What We Don't Like

  • Obviously a game that most won't feel like playing every day of the year.

  • Strong emphasis on in-game currency which can range from a few dollars to a few hundred.

Farm Snow is an offline farming video game for Android and iOS devices that swaps out the traditional farmland activities and environment for Santa's workshop and Christmas tasks at the North Pole.

Instead of harvesting wheat and corn, players are tasked with growing hay (for the reindeer, of course), Christmas trees, and candy. The magical village can also be expanded with new Christmasy buildings.
