My daughter and I were watching Spongebob together when we saw a commercial for this:
Technically, it is not a simple rip-off of some other company’s idea, the classic Zynga approach, because Hasbro owns Hungry Hungry Hippos, and Zynga and Hasbro are in bed together on this one. But it certainly feels like a poor recycling job to me, with 50 Farm Cash thrown in as a “Digital Value for Parents Inside!” I suppose at least they are pretending to feed adult addiction to the game rather than overtly suggesting the kids go log on and play.
Of course, in looking this up, I found that Hasbro and Zynga have recycled a few other classic games with a FarmVille theme.
