As I listened to the massive thunderstorm that hovered around my house from 4am – 11am Sunday morning, I thought, “I wonder if my granola bars are done baking?”
I wasn’t actually baking real granola bars though. I was baking virtual granola bar in my virtual French stable for my virtual horses.
Yes friends, it has come to horse iPad games. The rain has done this to me. I fear I may never be the same.
I downloaded Horse Haven on a whim Friday night. See, I work in a gaming company and we do a lot of mobile game development. Periodically I’ll download some games from the app store for research and development purposes, but I can’t claim those reasons had anything to do with my Horse Haven download and subsequent purchases.
I spent $6 in an hour. In video game land, that labels me as a “whale”. Though I haven’t spent any more real money this weekend, I have spent a lot of my time playing this game.
I won’t claim this is a realistic game though. For example, when horses are tired they just sit down.
Tack choices leave a bit to be desired.
So if you’re looking for something to do while the rain takes all your shows and rides and life outside away, download this game and be my friend.
Because this is as close to riding outside as I’m likely to get until June. Not even joking.
