Why Text Based Horse Games Are Fun?

Diesen Artickel einschätzen What's behind the lasting appeal of text-based horse games? Pferde Spiele Online - Why Text Based Horse Games Are Fun?

Text-based horse games are probably the least appreciated parts of the genre. People are so used to the big and flamboyant three-dimensional horse games like Planet Horse and Alicia Online, that they forget that horse games have humble origins as well.

This origin is understood when one decides to take some time to try and play text-based games like Indomita and Happy Horses. These are simple, but yet are still highly engaging if only one takes the time to experience what they have in store for you.

The question is: what makes these horse games so fun, even if they lack the visual or aesthetic appeal of other games in the genre?

Come to think of it, the simplicity that these games have is actually their strongest point. Playing online is dependent on the quality of your connection, and not solely on the graphics side of the game. Don’t take us wrongly on this one: while graphics takes care of making the game visually appealing, they can also eat up valuable speed and bandwidth.

If your Internet connection happens to be buggy at the time you’re playing, you could end up getting frustrated with the amount of time consumed in simply loading the game’s graphical components.

With text-based games, however, you need not worry about that because everything is presented in prose or text form. All you have to do is read up on the text, and see what’s going on with the world of horses that you’ve gone into.

Use your imagination! It may look boring at first because there’s no graphics at all to fully describe the world in which the game is set, but the text messages are fully descriptive and feeds you everything you need to know.

After all, you could decipher exactly who won in a race just by reading the news articles, right? That’s the same with text-based games. There’s no extraneous information in the text aside from a little creative input from the writers, so you can decipher exactly what you need to know.

It’s not that text-based horse games are totally devoid of graphics. They do include some images, particularly when you’re choosing horse breeds to add to your stable. In Indomita, for instance, you can pick an image that you can upload to represent your horse. This will serve as an avatar for each of the horse in your stable.

If you’re curious about what games to play, there are a lot of games in this sub-genre of horse simulators. You could try Happy Horses, which has a Facebook App Page so you don’t have to register to a separate website. All you need is just your Facebook account, and you can begin playing in no time!

If you’re looking for a more traditional way of enjoying a good horse trainer simulation, maybe you should think about giving text-based horse sims a try. It might take some time to get used to if you’ve been playing those 3D horse simulators a lot, but it’s gonna be worth the time.
