Harvest Moon: Sunshine Islands

Nintendo DS
Comic Mischief, Use of Alcohol

This is a simulation game in which players assume the role of an adventuring farmer who must bring back a chain of sunken islands by collecting magical stones. Players raise livestock, grow crops to make food/drinks, and mine gems throughout the islands. Players can obtain several items, including an assortment of farming tools (e.g., hammers, hoes, and fishing rods). Although it serves no useful purpose, players have the ability to whack at barnyard animals with these tools, causing them to squeal and briefly flash. Another item that players can obtain is grape wine, which can be consumed to increase stamina.
