Hay Day is a mobile farming game with a loyal fan base that has been recently disappointed by an update that made the game less user-friendly. Players dislike the new design, smaller fonts, and windows that pop up when dragging products, as well as the fact that the game crashes more frequently. Some have also noticed that the game has become more of a money-grab and lost its unique charm. Other suggestions included adding a tool box for upgrade items, gifting decorations, and diamonds to other players, and making diamonds easier to earn.Hay Day - Apps on Google Play

The game used to be work and get rewarded now there are so many options to pay your way throught the game. The game was fine until they pushed farm pass so much, a cheap purchase, but it makes it impossible to compete with other farmers with its insane bonuses. On top of that, now they have an optional ad icon drop on your screen EVERY TIME you produce anything to once again give insane bonuses. It's becoming more and more of a money grab and only getting worse.
The game itself is solid, graphics have that mobile game feel without being too cheesy, and the wait times are alright for the style. The only thing I wish is that diamonds are easier to come across, the games not unreasonable about their dispersal and you can get items you buy with diamonds from other sources but it is much slower, but not enough to frustrate you. But the game does need to make money somehow with no ads and being free, so I guess it's alright.
I like it. Great game to pass the time. The update was cool, but I hate when I see an ad in the newspaper, i click it, and it's not there or already sold like bruh or when it says someone needs help and you go to the farm and they don't. Also add a feature to report adds because some adds aren't appropriate for kids.
Honestly one of the best mobile games you will play. But there is currently a bug that crashes your game if you're trying to drop stone pathways. I haven't done too much testing with other decorations but this bug is annoying and makes me want to put the game down. I will change my rating when the bug is fixed
I have played this game for years and I really loved it, but the most recent update made it unplayable. It either glitches so bad that nothing is readable or gives me a plain green screen I can't interact with every time I load it. I tried clearing cache and memory as well as undownloading and redownloading it onto my phone. It's completely unplayable as it is, which really sucks because I loved the new things that they were coming out with even if the design was now sub par.
I love this game & play it daily but I haven't been able to get it to load since this latest update. It starts to load then kicks me back to my home screen. I've uninstalled & redownloaded it but nothing works. Very irritating, I hope it's fixed soon. I just want to clarify that the 2 stars would be 4 if not for the issues with the new update.
It is a truly fun and relaxing game with lots of nice features such as neighborhood and chat. The only thing that is annoying is that the game regularly crashes on my device. I have all the minimum requirements and plenty of free storage but for some reason it just keeps crashing up to the point where I have to reinstall the game multiple times an hour. (I have the Motorola g5 plus)
I've had this game for a long time now and it was really fun, but Im not fond of this update. It's caused allot of issues. To start with, I can barely get the game to start up and load. As soon as it loads it shuts down and kicks me off to my home screen. I've made sure its updated, I have a new android (2022), I've deleted it and redownloaded it and STILL have issues! Any time I try to message on group boards it'll kick me off every few words. I hate how everything looks and acts button wise.
This game is very nice. The graphics of this game are also very good. I enjoy this game very much. But there are some problems in this game. Like 1) If I save after editing the farm, it takes a long time to save. 2)In the case of Land expansion,Silo and the burn, the same tools are given repeatedly. The tools that are needed are not given properly. Hope you guys try to fixed this.
I have been playing for about 6 years. At first I loved it, but it has slowly turned into every other pay to play game. Things that used to be expandable or purchased with coins that were earned in game, now no longer exist. Everything costs real money, aka diamonds, to upgrade & expand. And newest update is difficult to see, so if you have sight issues like I do, this will definitely hinder your game playing experience.
I love this game, has been playing for years! 5 stars, but as of April, 2023, the most recent update with the product pop-ups makes me so annoyed. It constantly covers a huge chunk of my screen, pops-up inconsistently (sometimes to the left of the selected product, sometimes to the right), and then kicks me to the other side of my farm when I accidently click on an ingredient because it's covering what I need. I hope it reverts back next update, please and thank you.
It starts to get boring. It takes a long time to level up and is so difficult to find upgrade and expansion materials. Production buildings start to get extremely expensive as you slowly level up. Other then that I genuinely found it fairly enjoyable until the recent update. The app constantly crashes. I can't be on it for more then a minute before it does so. I can't get anything done and it is getting so annoying. Update needs reversing .
Been playing this game for almost 10 years now and have to voice that the new update sucks. Everything previously said about the update stands correct. It takes so long now to go through items, it's annoying and makes me not even want to play. The new art looks awful as well, like the game has just been made and not been a success for a decade now. Simply revert back to the old style and it will be fine again, otherwise it's a hard pass.
New update completely ruined it for me and many others! The layout and style is really difficult to navigate and looks too childish. It's somehow less simple. When crafting things, being a left hander it's so difficult to see the ingredients being used because of my hand being there when before it was way more easier to see as it was bigger and didn't vanish after moving the item to craft. Please revert the changes! Everyone wants this. The game worked perfectly fine before! Why!!!
Update: The new "modern" look after the most recent update makes the game look cheap and cartoon-y. It's brighter, lots of things are outlined in white, font is smaller when showing what ingredients are needed in the production buildings and they disappear when you click on an item, rather than staying available. No one in my HayDay neighborhood likes the new update. I still enjoy playing, but the update makes it difficult.
The recent update needs reversing, it is beyond awful. The smaller fonts are making the game very frustrating to play, especially the way they are used in the ingredients list. The new look is looks terrible, and all the information features have been squashed to the side and make them pretty pointless. I have played for around 5 years but if this update is not reversed I will stop playing the game.
This game WAS great until the new update. Please provide a way to go back to the old style of design. The ingredient lists are way to small and dissappear when you go to drag. Very frustrating, also don't like 90% of the visual cartoony changes. Maybe stop trying to change everything at once and wait for proper feedback? I've wasted tons of money on this game but I'm going to stop playing 100% if I can't revert back to old design. Very strange this didn't go through any testing beforehand.
It passes time. But Tom sleeps a lot. When you really need him to work he's sleep. Appears to be lazy. Also, the items equipment is expensive to get. I think each level should come with extra coins. The old lady and man is a great help and there should be an option to get more helpers. I think a barter system would be fun amongst other players and the computer players that come along and ask to purchase items
New update makes game play horrible. When trying to go through your items to see how many you have, a menu pops up that shows you what that item needs. This is a huge problem when you stop touching that product and the menu stays up so you can't click on the next item. I used to be able to fly through all my products and quickly see what I needed. When I'm planting stuff it constantly goes back to page one so annoying. How do I go back to the old version? I hope an update comes quickly!
New update was bad. It made all of the menus look all weird and cartoony. There's also this weird thing they changed with dragging and dropping something you want to make on a production machine. When you start moving the item the ingredients disappear. It's just really annoying when I'm trying to see how much I have left of something when I'm making whatever it is I'm making.
Font size too small. Have played for years, but the latest update has made all the fonts so small I can't see very well. Even the quantity buttons on the buildings has small font. Plus the colours of the font are hard to read. I HATE the new fonts so much, it has ruined my enjoyment of this game. I can't find a way to contact support about this, as the layout has changed too.
The UI overhaul, in sum, sucks. Nothing was made easier/more efficient, and some things were made harder/less efficient. You have to tap an extra time if you want to see the ingredients for a product while you're dragging, because they disappear if your finger moves even a tiny bit. It's much harder to play with your left hand, because everything of interest is blocked by your hand. Level/XP is squandered off to a far corner and much smaller, requiring you to open it to get an idea of progress.
Don't get me wrong I love this game. Its quite addictive, in a good way, and it can totally be casual if you want. But this God awful update, that no one asked for is Horrendous, the new design is super frustrating and all these little gimmicks they added or took out,very frustrating. Hayday should give its players the option to choose between the New or the Old design. They can just default it to the "updated" looks. But if it ain't broke dont fix it, because you just might ruin it
Love this game but the new update is horrible. Such a struggle to load products into machines. The options menu now stays on screen and you can't click to go to another product unless to tap twice. This is extremely frustrating as it takes twice as long to load products. The layout has also completely changed and it doesn't feel as user-friendly. Why change something that worked so well. I'll be spending a whole lot less time on this game now and will probably delete after 10 years of enjoyment
The new update is awful! Adding the new production machines, animals, and food is great, but the new button graphics are cheesy and cheap looking. They totally eliminated the old, country, quality look and feel and made it look like plastic, just like every other farming game. Hayday was different from the rest in its look and feel, it was nice. The new graphics don't match the graphics in the rest of it now either, I wonder how soon it will be before they ruin the rest of it. Please undo this.
I love this game and have played it for years, but I absolutely hate the new update. The whole format and look have changed. The buttons look like a 5 year old drew them now. The layout is less intuitive. The level indicator is completely in the way now instead of on top of the screen. Why change the whole style of a game that has been successful for years ? I had no choice but to update it also. Couldn't play otherwise.
New interface sucks. There was absolutely no need to change it in the first place. Every time i press a production building, and then on a product, a new window pops up which shows the materials needed and arrows leading to the sources that they can be obrained from (like a tutorial noone asked for). This window hides the rest of the products behind it so i have to unclick it in order to choose another product. This is so frustrating and im not interested in playing a game that tires me.
It was a pleasant game to play, but after the update on 03/27/23, the interface became more than disgusting, very overloaded and tasteless. The creators changed something that shouldn't have been changed. Me and my friends will not return to the game until the old interface returns, or is redesigned to be even more minimalistic than it was.
Good game.... But when it comes to user experience it is THE WORST game possible. Consider spending hours progressing in the game and then one day all of a sudden the game just crashes every freakin' time and then the crashing cycle continues. And unfortunately it's not just me as there are tonnes of users who are facing the same issue. I hope supercell throws some light on this problem and fix this in the next update or the graph is just gonna fall down for this game.
This game is a great game and super addicting BUT I think that there should be like a specific tool box for upgrade items because when the barn gets full but you still need upgrade items you gave to sell stuff that you need and sometimes still don't have enough space. I also think that we should be able to gift decorations, fishing items and possibly diamonds to each other, I think that would help out a little with the game. Overall it's fun just a few suggestions that might help out.
