Before anyone starts raging about my selection, let me remind you that this is all opinion. It’s only natural that what I consider cute or ugly won’t be the same as someone else’s idea of cute or ugly.
I’ve been meaning to do this post for a while but have been lazy when it comes to screencapturing and editing the images. Well, here they are! XD These are my picks of ugly and mildly uncute animals from Com2uS’ Tiny Farm. The percentages below the animals indicates how many of those types I have in possession.
Among the types of animals shown above, there are some exceptions like these. ^^~ They’re not oozing of cute but they’re not as hard on the eyes as the others. (The Fat Cat has a medal next to it since I’ve maxed out its Mastery gauge.)
Finally, some of the Legendary Animals fall under the eew category too such as the pegasus and heavenly unicorn. The dragon’s kind of meh as well though.
So why are they ugly to me? I think it mostly has to do with their eyes. I love cartoon animals (and even plush toys) that are chubby, fluffy, and have beady, dotty-eyes. ^^
For example! Tiny Farm sheep are super cute … unless you count the basic adult sheep which look kind of weird. (See first screencap here.) But these adolescent types are adorable~!
These bears are another example~!
They’re already cute without clothing but their costumes make them even cuter. ^o^~
I didn’t include the bearded pigs, boars, or hamsphires since they’re all right in my book. I definitely like them more than butt ugly unicorns.
…. I forgot to screencapture the fish. .____. I really wish they could get a makeover since so many of them really don’t fit the cute theme of the game. 😦
Speaking about makeovers, Tiny Farm held an election a few weeks ago and one of the candidates was a bearded pig whose campaign was all about revising designs for unpopular animals. The other two candidates were a unicorn vying to keep things as is (I think? I can’t remember) and a cute little bird that chirped about bringing MORE cute animals to Tiny Farm.
The bearded pig won. :E I’m not sure what Com2uS has in mind or what their staff consider uncute but I’m hoping there’s some sort of voting system for players before they roll out new designs because I’d vote the hell out of that gross donkey.
Honestly, Com2uS has so much they can do with Tiny Farm such as opening up that last map area. I could seriously use the space since animal certificates are so costly for every map I have right now. But I guess designing a whole new section takes a lot of time. Then again, maybe if they’d stop constantly generating new animal sets they could focus more on it? I suppose from their point of view, they have to keep putting out something new every week or two to keep the game fresh. The thing is, there are already SO MANY ANIMALS to collect. It won’t kill them to take a breather once in a while so players can “catch up”.
It’s a good thing they’re expanding storage space with every few updates as I need to keep putting away older animals to try and accommodate the newcomers but I’d really like to see them finish up some older collections. 😐 There are still a bunch of Heroic Animals that have yet to visit Tiny Farm after all.
Boy, I totally went off on a tangent there. Well, there’s not much to say about unappealing animals other than to show them and kind of explain why they don’t click with me. ^^
