Astro Ranch Details

Having survived a crash landing on an alien planet you find yourself alone… or so you thought! The crater in which you’ve landed is occupied by a variety of aliens, some more friendly than others. The only option is to follow through on your prime directive and set up a ranch!

A large variety of alien crops, animals and tools are available to help you build the ranch of your dreams. Watch the stock market daily to ensure you get the best price and as you gain experience purchase the many upgrades that are available to help productivity. If farming gets you down then the locals will provide you with a variety of odd jobs, or you could kick back and enjoy a spot of fishing or gold panning down at the river.

Astro Ranch has a host of social features powered by Scoreloop that allow you to share your game experience with others. You can send letters, gifts and galactic chips to friends; compare ranch values and boast of your achievements on Facebook!
