Tourism Ireland Launches Zynga-Like Facebook Game

Tourism Ireland has created a Facebook game that looks a lot like Zynga's FarmVille, FrontierVille and CityVille.

Does the game on Tourism Ireland’s Facebook page remind you at all of FarmVille?

The Irish tourism concern states, “Ireland Town is a game created by Tourism Ireland to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2011 and the island of Ireland.” Perhaps the page needs to get rid of the date on the holiday that already passed.

The application also promises players the chance to win a trip to Ireland, which is timeless and if anything deserves more prominent placement on the page.

The game looks like a cross between FarmVille, FrontierVille and CityVille, with the added ability to brew beer to sell in your own pub and to perform with musicians in said venue.

Readers, have you tried Tourism Ireland’s game, and if so, what do you think of it?
