Return to the ranch and refurbish a whole new area in Barn Yarn Deluxe, a charming continuation from the makers of Farmscapes. Grandpa Joe and his grandson Tom are knee deep in repairs once again. This time, Joe has bought an old barn with the intent of using it to house his livestock and other important items through the harsh winter.
help Grandpa Joe and his grandson Tom fix their barn in this hidden object escapade
find over 3,000 items in 30 various locations
sell unique items to earn money for purchasing supplies and décor
enjoy six different play modes, have fun with various mini-games
It was fun to play barn yarn. The different rooms/outdoor places including bonus rooms was a lot to keep you playing again and again. The graphics are fine, bright and colorful.
I liked the mini games they had. I have enjoyed playing playrix hidden object/renovating games.

I enjoyed this game very much except for the sound. It is so disstorted so I had to turn of my speakers. This was very disapointing. The game is fun, but after spend money on the game I would have liked for everything to work. The sound was the only problem

I love "search objects" games and of the half dozen I've downloaded Barn Yarn is by far the very best. Relaxing fun at its' best. I'm hoping gamehouse has more "search" games similar to Barn Yarn. I bought FarmScapes but in my opinion it has way too many levels like Candy Crush. Barn Yarn is 90% searching for objects and making money doing so. You use the earnings to remodel a barn and it's pure enjoyment the whole time. Well worth a try.
I love Playrix games. They've got the best casual games. I would have given this five stars easily if it hadn't been for excessive advertising. I don't mind developers advertising their other games a little bit in the main menu, but when I'm being bribed 1000 coins to check out Royal Envoy 2 while in-game, that just comes off as tacky. I also got a letter from Austin that was basically another advertisement to try a Gardenscapes game in exchange for -- you guessed it -- 1000 coins. Playrix, I really do love you, but PLEASE tone it down. I don't want to sound like I'm being too hard on this game, because I really do like it. It's like Gardenscapes, which is a good thing. If you like that game, you'll like this one, too. It's very relaxing, especially if you play on relaxed mode. All the objects are fairly easy to find. As with most Playrix games, there are little touches that make the game more enjoyable: clicking on customers who will respond in goofy ways, silly antics between Joe and Tom, hidden object scenes that take place in the barn itself...and of course, the big things -- like high production values -- are here as well. The replay value is good, because the items don't stay in the same place. And it's fun to decorate your barn differently the next time. Of all the casual games I have, this is one of two premium titles I own, so I don't have much to compare this game's goodies to. That being said, the wallpapers look good and are something I'd actually use. Concept art is always nice to see. I haven't checked out the bonus levels, but hopefully those will be as good as the rest of the game. Overall, thumbs up. =)
These games are such fun! I like the storyline and chosen what to buy for the barn!! It's a basic HO game the Uncle Joe and Tom are what make the game!!

This is a Great game except for the fact that some of the rooms are too dark to make finding the items much fun. I normally dont like HO games except for this series. And that is the main reason why.make the rooms lighter and more fun to search.

This is another good offering in the Farmscape series. This is strictly a hidden object game where you have to find items customers want. If you don't find them within a certan amount of time, then you don't receive as much cash for the item. The object is to help Grandpa renovate his newly-acquired barn. It's straight-forward, but you do get to pick the decor for each type of item, and you can change your mind later if you like. It's fairly short with just a few bonus levels, but it's a good evening's entertainment if you like straight-forward HO games.
Playrix does a really good job of making these cute games with nice little stories. I enjoyed helping fix up the barn. The HO are pretty easy. The grandpa and grandson characters are very cute and they work well off of each other.

If you loved Farmscapes and Gardenscapes, you will love this one. Very family friendly. No blood. No violence. No swearing. It is kid friendly, while entertaining and fun for adults as well. I did buy this at BigFish as they had the standard version already. I really don't like to wait for a game's standard version if I don't have to. Premium versions are a bit pricey and give you only a little more game play. Not worth it to me. I would definitely recommend the standard version.
As with the previous games in this series the graphics/storyline is very good. I completed the game in 1 day. It does have a lot of repeat scenes. It's a good game to play if you just want to relax.

I must be playing a different game to the other reviewers as I found it too easy and boring and very samey!!

love these games. finding items for customers-sometimes having to solve riddles to get the name of the item you're to look for. fixing up the barn is too cool. i love that you can change your mind about the decor if you'd like. FUN...

As in the others of this series, the graphics are gorgeous, and the characters are winning. The barn makeover is loads of fun with all kinds of design choices and fanciful barn additions that make the barn more liveable than a lot of houses. I have to admit up front that I'm not overly fond of Hidden Object games; I was hoping this would be a match 3 like Farmscapes. Some of the objects are nearly impossible to find (like the white spiderwebs) without using the hints. But the hints are generous; you can pick up additional hints in all or nearly all of the levels. The levels are varied; I think there are some dozen or more screens, so they don't become monotonous. The characters of Tom and Joe are loads of fun as are the barn animations. You click on the hay for the cow and Joe goes to fill the hay bin. Click on the dog's bowl and Joe puts food in the bowl and the dog goes to eat it. And so on. Loads of fun. Don't move for a while and the characters start talking to you. There is a storyline of sorts, but after you finish all the upgrades and bonus levels, the story just stops. Tom's parents are supposed to be picking him up, but after I finished the upgrades, nobody came to pick him up. The game just stops, unlike the Mansion makeover that had a great ending. At least, Tom's parents should have picked him up. There was one glitch, but it came at the end. I was down to the last upgrade, the milking machine when the HO level just crashed. I picked up all the items and it just died. I restarted it several times and it still wouldn't work. However, I went to the bonus levels and got the money I needed, and oddly after that I went back to the level in the game and it let me finish it. But then, as I said before, after the last upgrade, the game just sat there. No grand finish, no nothing. I could (and did for a couple of levels) keep playing the HO part, but what was the point? After all the great upgrades, the fun characters and the fantastic graphics, it was a very disappointing finish. A side note, I wish they'd go back to the Match 3 game in this version of the series; I'm still going back to the Farmscape game to play that, but I don't do that with the HO versions.
I found it really easy to get lost in and lose track of time because i was so content on continuing every next challenge.

I found this game to be too easy and kind of boring. Not something I will play often.

Love this game! Have to find objects, butterflies and gold coins in each level. Special requests, such as hats for a special sale are loads of fun. Dressing up your barn in any manner that you want. Hours of enjoyment!

This is basically a spin off from Gardenscapes, a connection the game plays up well. If you haven't played that game...it is a hidden object game where you earn money by selling items at an estate sale. The objects are requested by various shoppers and it's your job to find the item. You earn more or less depending on how long it takes you. The game expands on your usual hint button by allowing you to find helpful items mixed in with the sale things. There is a magnet that will point you in the right direction, a light bulb (taking the place of the camera in Gardenscapes) that will show you for a brief moment just the items you are searching for or you can collect butterflies which act as your more typical hint button. The money you earn goes toward decorating the old barn and you have a say in the design process. Grandpa Joe and his grandson Tom interact with the environment and each other in adorable ways. The graphics are crisp and cheerful, the dialogue witty and it's a game that is appropriate for the whole family. A welcome addition to the catalog!
