FrontierVille Injured Critters: Waaaay too much of a good thing


players, I have an apology to make. When I complained about the lack of injured critter variety in FrontierVille back in March, I had no idea what was ahead. In the month+ since, we've seen the release of Black Deers, Spring Robins, Spring Bear Cubs, Mules, Spring Chinchillas, and even a Turtle to the game, all of which require time, effort, and lots of clicking to return to full health / lure out of their hole / break their shell. I never thought I'd say this, but it almost seems as though the system has gone too far the other way, at least in some respects.

Ok, so maybe I'm not personally responsible for the over-crowding of our land with Injured Critters, but it does bring up another discussion that Zynga should be having. While I'm all for (let me repeat - I greatly encourage) the critter variety in FrontierVille, it's more the quantity and simultaneous appearances of these animals on my land that has me down. Look at the screenshot above. That's my Homestead - a picture taken just a few moments ago. I haven't been saving up animals to write this story; I haven't purposefully ignored animals just to have something to complain about. These animals have all spawned on my land in less than 24 hours - the only one I'm missing is a Mule!
