[London, 1st November 2017] - Today, Gram Games announces the expansion of its Merge! franchise with Merge Farm! Available on iOS, its launch marks the fourth title to employ the studios simple, yet addictive Merge! mechanic.
The Merge! mechanic was first established with the release of Gram Games’ stand out mobile hit, Merge Dragons! This was further solidified by Merge Town!- a popular puzzle game, free to play on iOS and Android, that employs the Merge! mechanic to build towns and formidable metropolises. The Merge! Franchise has generated over 25M combined downloads to date.
The concept of Merge Farm! is simple: plant and harvest crops of varying types to create a profitable farm. Once planted, players can merge crops of the same variety to make them grow. The bigger your crops become, the more fruit they will produce and the more successful your farm will be. As players develop their farms, they will discover various buildings, animals, and unique decorations to truly make their farm their own.
Crops can be harvested at any point, but players must keep an eye on the orders at the top of the screen. Filling these will generate more money to buy new crops. Players will have to wait for the right moment and merge strategically to make the most of their harvest and farm.
Mehmet Ecevit, Gram Games’ Co-Founder and CEO, comments: “Merge Farm! is the first farming title to be released by Gram Games. It offers a new dimension to the Merge! franchise, but maintains the mechanic that will keep our loyal Merge! fans engaged. It’s easy-to-play, but the game can employ a high degree of strategy. Players can Merge freely but can only build a successful farm if their timing is right.
Ecevit adds, “Merge Farm! follows the success of Merged!, Merge Dragons! and Merge Town! We’re excited to be able to bring even more Merging gameplay to players all around the world. With four launches, and more Merge! titles to come before the end of the year, 2017 will be a landmark year for Gram Games.”

Merge Farm! Tip and Tricks
Tip #1: Stay ahead of the game!
- New orders will constantly come in as you plant and harvest crops. Keep an eye on your inventory for items that you don’t have a lot of
- If you only have a couple dozen units of wheat, and a single wheat crop, you might want to plant and merge some more wheat!
- Plant ahead of the game. Don’t wait for an order to ask you for a resource before you plant it, or you might find yourself in a sticky situation
Tip #2: Don’t be afraid to take a break
Sometimes you’ll hit a brick wall and won’t have enough funds to keep the farming going. No worries, even though you might have to take a break, your farm will keep producing. Come back after a short while and harvest what your farm produced in your absence.
Tip #3: Merge merge merge!
Merging crops doesn’t just increase a crop’s capacity, it also heightens production rates! Remember to keep merging whenever you can - this will help grow a bigger and more profitable farm. Watch out - with success comes popularity - your orders will increase in frequency and in size! Merging is the key to keeping up.
Bonus: Remember, you can also merge buildings and animals.
Tip #4: It’s okay to sell!
If you find that you’re unable to focus on merging the plants you currently want because the board is too full, you can always sell old crops to make room for the new.
Likewise, if you only need a couple gold to buy that last watermelon seed, it’s always alright to sell a cheaper plant to get the boost you need to move forward.
Tip #5: Use boosters strategically
Remember that boosters are more valuable when used at certain times.
You’ll definitely want to use a double harvest when returning from a long absence as you will have large amounts of resources waiting for you!
Likewise, seed-boosts are great when you’re trying to get a specific crop to a higher level, fast.
