- Besides the arcade mode, a casual, endless and bonus modes are available to play.
- iPod access is available to players.
- Simple puzzle gameplay that is accessible to any aged/level player.
- No continue options available to players if they exit the applications mid level.
- The game uses US currency and might throw off players who are unfamiliar with pennies, dimes and nickels.
- No online leaderboard options available; only local highscores.
Cash Cow does offer players some decent gem collecting, coin counting gameplay, but some of its issues may annoy you a bit. But you might want to try the lite version first as this game may be worth the current price.

Cash Cow is a gem collecting style game where you play as Buck the Cow, who must save his farm from being repossessed from the bank by collecting loose change to repay his debts. Yes, Buck is a cow with debts. Anyway, you’ll need to sort through your spare change in order to make dollar notes as the bank will only accept paper money now.
Players tap on coins next to each other to combine them to change them into dollar bills. The gameplay is fine but the first immediate issue is that it’s all in US currency. So you’ll have to combine five pennies to make a nickel, two nickels to make a dime out and so on. This isn’t a huge issue but it’ll take you a little while to get used to the names of coins if you’re unfamiliar with US currency.
The game’s 3D presentation and sound are both well done and there are no hidden surprises here. The game is single player only but multiple game profiles can be stored in the arcade mode, and if players are looking for a change, there are a number of different game modes to play through.
Cash Cow is a solid game that fans of other gem collecting will enjoy. The gameplay is simple and becomes quite addictive once you get going. And while it can be annoying to use US currency, you’ll get used to it. Also, once players begin a streak of coins, there is no way to cancel it, leaving you waiting a few seconds for it to disappear. However, Cash Cow is a title that you’ll want to have a look at; or at least the lite version to see if the gameplay Mooo-ves you.
