Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town ROM Download for GBA 

One of our guilty pleasures is playing those restaurant games where you make or bake something and sell it. In that process, we sometimes burn the items or delay them, causing customers to leave. Those games are fun to play as you not only enjoy it but can also alter it after getting coins from the food you sell. All the people who play games are based on themes like making food, growing vegetables, or raising livestock. I have one recommendation for you. It's called Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town. 

Game Plot

The game is part of the Story of Seasons series and a remade of Harvest Moon: Back to Nature. The player's main objective is to produce crops, raise livestock, and profit from the farm. The game begins with a character that doesn't have a default name. He gets lost on a farm while travelling with his parents. An older man finds him and helps him reunite with his family. After the family finds the boy, the older man asks them to stay with him for a couple of days. 

After leaving Mineral Town, the player stays in touch by writing letters. As the character grows up, the message stops coming. To see what happened, he goes back to the town to find out the older man has died, leaving behind his farm in the character's care. The name takes the responsibility to restore the farm.



The gameplay is simple. The player has several tools, to begin with, and must earn money. He can do that by planting crops, mining, or foraging. This money can be used to buy other things that will benefit the character, such as livestock, and to expand the farm. The player can also befriend other villagers, which will let him know about new recipes.

Three Games you would love if you like Harvest Moon. They are:


  1. Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life
    This one is a bit similar but has different gameplay. The player has one cow and can later have higher-quality cattle and sheep, chickens, and horses. This game, for the first time, features ducks and a goat. 

  2. Harvest Moon: Back to Nature
    This game challenges the player to build a farm on a land covered in weeds. The game starts with having a small amount of money and a farm covered in weeds. The player must interact with other villages and also take care of the farm. 

  3.  Graveyard Keeper
    This game gives games a little twist with land care. Rather than growing vegetables and taking care of a farm, the player is tasked with maintaining a dilapidated medieval burial ground. So payers won't be keeping up a farm but digging up graves and participating in witch burnings.
