So i recently found a game on my iPad called animal crossing pocket camp and i thought i was cute so i downloaded it,
It is a free to play social simulation mobile game that is part of Nintendo’s animal crossing new leaf series and is available on IOS and android platforms, it was released in Australia in October 2017 and then worldwide a month later.
I freaking love this game, you can play it for hours at a time or you can just pop on for a quick little fix, there is no fixed agenda it really is your game, i progressed quite quickly to level 17 over the course of 3 days and i am still happily bumbling along.
So the idea is you are a new campsite owner and you have to make friends with the characters in the game and invite them to your camp, so you have to get the friendship level of each character up to level 3 before you can invite them to your camp and to do this you have to give them gifts of things that they need, then when you get to high enough friendship status you can invite them BUT each character has a certain set of items that they require you to have made for them to even set foot in your camp so you need to make those and display them in your camp and then they will visit you.
You don’t need to keep all the items out once they have visited you the first time because i mean well there is not enough space for that.
So the camp has 3 main areas, You have the main kind of hang out area where the sofas and rugs and hammocks and BBQs go the main kind of living area i guess, then there are 2 separate areas where you can put fun things, so i have got a big like tent in one of the areas with cushions and a knitting basket and then in the other area i have got a kind of park but it has a huge pipe in it.. This is for now it will definitely change in the near future.
You can go fishing and catch bugs in your nets or use honey on tree stumps to gather bugs, you shake trees to get fruits and sometimes they will drop money.. you can make your camper van better as well by getting different paint-jobs and even making them have another floor.
It starts off that you level up quite quickly but the more you play it you will notice it takes a lot more time to get the friendship levers to keep rising, and it does become harder to gather enough materials to craft items.
So essentially the characters give you rewards for when you give them a gift that they have been needing and that normally is how you get your crafting materials or when you reach a certain goal in the game you get a bundle of crafting items..
There are daily rewards you get if you log in every day, and right now there is a Halloween special going on where you have to grow special flowers that attract bats and then you catch said bats..
If you have already played animal crossing new leaf please don’t think this is the same as that as really its not, i mean the people look the same and the characters from the main game are in this app but the actual gameplay is much different which you would expect as this is just an app game..
But over all for an APP game i think its such good quality and there are no ads that pop up trying to get you to spend any money which is also a bonus.
I hope i may have inspired you to download and try this game, Let me know if you do and what you think of it.
