After the comic strip you are shown a fairly detailed tutorial about how to build your farm using the different tools and move Derek around the farm so he can interact with the field.

You can move around by dragging your finger on the screen in the desired direction and choose the tool from the bottom on the bottom of the screen. By delivering the products as ordered, you will get money and fame as a reward.
You can check the due date or complete the order by going to the factory or the cooperative. The drop-down menu shows the orders you have accepted from the factory and the cooperative. You can also purchase items from the in app store to speed up the growing process and unlock a variety of achievements through your Game Center account.
A lot of daily activities in the game will keep you busy through the day. After finishing the work on the farm, you may go to the village to have a chit-chat with the neighbours, give them some items to get acquainted.
There are shops that you can buy items to upgrade your farm or even send gifts to Tida. You may go to the forest and collect ores from the mine. The game also supports integration with your Facebook account.
Once you have connected to Facebook, the reward which is a golden egg item will be delivered to your warehouse every month, selling it will give you an amount of income. Another benefit of connecting is, you can visit your friends' farm and, on the other hand, your friends can visit yours.
So others can see how your farm grows over time. The goal is to maintain reputation of the farm by completing the orders from the cooperative and the factory. Completing one order will lead to the greater order which pays back more fame and money.
However, failing to complete will reduce the farm's fame. Story plays an integral part in this game. Check out the mail box often to see if anyone sent a letter to you. It could be a letter from Tida telling how is she going in Bangkok, or it could be a letter from the neighbour telling how do they feel about you.
Although the game design is relatively small compared to other apps in the genre, Country Life has a unique story driven gameplay that anyone, especially children with a lot of time on their hands can enjoy.
Country Life is free to download from the iTunes app store and requires iOS 4. 3 or later.
