StoneDale combines tropical adventures with animal husbandry


StoneDale is a new adventure game by PlayNow Studio, and its bright and lively art style could make the developer's first Facebook game a hit. StoneDale combines some fun features from FrontierVille, Island God, and Wildlife Refuge to make a hybrid social game that feels like it has learned a bit from its predecessors. In this game, you are tending a tropical island, appealing to the gods, and discovering new animals to tame and collect.

The tutorial in StoneDale follows the current trend of keeping it short and simple, launching players into a series of 'quests' after a couple steps have been completed. The island contains trees that need to be harvested, buildings that need whacking to build, animals to discover, and plants to tend to. Resources such as wood and crystals need to be collected to upgrade buildings and complete quests. Energy is the main monetization method in StoneDale, as you need it in order to take part in actions such as chopping, upgrading, and finding animals.
