This game is available through WildTangent, and can be played for free provided you complete it in 1-2 sittings (most of their games can only be started about twice before they start asking you to pay to play - a full game will require you to put down around $20, though if you subscribe to their "club", you can get enough credits for more than one game for that money). It's not a terribly long game, the plot of which consists of you receiving a letter from your Granduncle Fred saying you're welcome to take over his orchard if you can handle it. Over seven levels you get to listen to a peppy soundtrack and build up an orchard to make money. Initially the game tutorial gives you a lot of guidance and pointers, but this lightens up as you progress, until all you have is the six sub-goals that need to be completed (in order) to allow you to progress to the next level. It's a pretty cute game, the only real annoyance I found with it is how you have to wait for each number to be added in order if you want to see your balance for the previous day; there's no voluntary "economy panel" type access available in the game.
I think it's probably best summed up with "cute". (Also, GEEZ PEOPLE, who pays $600-$1k for fruit products in a single trip? Your customers are crazy!)
