The Harvest Moon 3 game will play on a Gameboy Color and Gameboy Advance systems. It won't play on the origional Gameboy, Gameboy Pocket, or a Super Gameboy. The controls are pretty much the same as the previous HM game for Gameboy.

  • Directional Buttons - Up, down, left, right; use to move your farmer around and chose things in menus.
  • A Button - Used a lot; confirms selections and use tools.
  • B Button - Cancel selections and puts an item you're holding into your rucksack. If you press a directional button and then press and hold B, you'll run.
  • Start Button - Brings up a summary window that shows the date, time, season, and current equipped tool.
