_Springdale: Över stock och sten_ is one of four games in the Springdale
series released at the same time. Each game in the series is an area of
Springdale that is connected to the others through a central island. The
player takes control of a young girl who get to enter the horse riding world
of Springdale and ride many different types of horses. In addition to riding
the horses the player gets to work in the stable where she learns about how
they should be taken care of.
The world of Springdale is fully rendered in 3D and the player moves around it
from a third person perspective. The player will come across different
characters that she can interact with and retrieve quests from. Often these
quests involve challenges where the player has to complete a race within time.
When a quest is completed the player is awarded with money and her reputation
increases. With the money the player can buy new clothes for herself or
equipment for her horse. An increased reputation leads to more horses
available to the player. While riding the horses it is important to be aware
of their needs. They need to get water when thirsty and get fed when hungry.
The player also needs to groom the horse as well as fix its hooves.
The game has a built in course editor where the player can create her own
jumper courses with different kinds of obstacles.
