If you play Animal Crossing, you've probably always wished you could bring your pals with you on your iPhone or Android device. Well, I've got good news for you. Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is just that — caring for your animal friends on the go! In this world, your fluffy friends are camping and it's your job to make sure they have everything they need while enjoying the great outdoors. Here's everything you need to know about Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.
What's new in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp
July 6, 2018: Bloomin' Booty with Kapp'n comes to Animal Crossing Pocket Camp
There's a new garden event happening right now and it's bursting with sunshine. Kapp'n needs help finding super rare ladybugs called Dappledots. Your job is to collect as many of them as possible by planting seasonal rare sunflowers in your garden that will attract them. Share your Dappledots with friends for rewards. Collect them to earn exclusive clothing and decorations from Kapp'n. Trade your harvested sunflowers to Lloid in exchange for crafting materials and essence. The event is only 10 days long, from July 5 - 15, so you'd better get going!
What is Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp?
Similar to its console counterpart, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is a time-based simulation game where players act as a caretaker for a group of adorable animals. In the mobile spinoff, you're in charge of a campsite instead of a village.
You play a campsite manager whose job it is to create the ideal "glamping" spot for your animal friends. As you perform tasks around the campground, like harvesting fruit and helping out visitors, you'll earn materials that you can take to the blacksmith to turn into cool furniture. The more decked out your campsite gets, the more animals will visit.
You'll also earn "leaf tickets" (and other items), which are in-game currency that can be used to speed up how long it takes to harvest items, finish tasks, craft items, and more.
How much does it cost?
That's an interesting question. It doesn't cost anything to download and install the game. It also doesn't cost anything to start playing the game. It is, however, the type of game that uses in-game currency, which you can use to speed up how often you can collect items, craft furniture, and more. So, for some, this free game might cause them to go bankrupt (my best friend already said she won't even download the game because she's afraid she'll spend her entire paycheck on it).
For the most part, you can casually play the entire game without feeling compelled to spend real money. There are times when you might want to skip the wait time and use items that help speed up growth processes and the like. Most items that speed things up cost Leaf Tickets, which aren't as fast to replenish as Bells. If you run out of Leaf Tickets, you might be hovering over that "Buy Now" button. Especially when it comes to getting character-themed fortune cookies within the time frame they're available. So far, I've spent less than $10 since it's launch in November 2017.
