Puzzle de Harvest Moon is a spin-off puzzle video game in the Harvest Moon series. It was developed by Platinum-Egg Inc. and published by Natsume on November 6, 2007.
Puzzle de Harvest Moon is a strategy game in which the object is to harvest plants from a small field you share with three other players. Farm animals the player periodically receives give special abilities in a small area; for example the dog protects an area for a short period of time from other players harvesting. Harvesting crops you've planted will count double towards your score. Puzzle de Harvest Moon features characters from Harvest Moon: Back to Nature as playable characters, four single-player modes, and multi-player mode where up to four players can play together, with one game cartridge.
Puzzle de Harvest Moon received mostly negative reviews, receiving an aggregate score of 43% from GameRankings and 41 from Metacritic. The critics claimed that the puzzle gameplay is unfitting for a Harvest Moon game. It also received criticism for its tutorial, which was claimed to make the game more confusing, and for not having a story for single player mode or any extended play modes. GameSpot refers to it as a scribbling exercise.
