Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Blends Patience With a Social Twist.

Unless you are completely new to the world of Animal Crossing, you’ll instantly understand why Nintendo’s mobile port, ‘Pocket Camp’, is the perfect vehicle for de-stressing at the end of the day. Animal Crossing has always been about plugging yourself into a relaxing and calm world and losing an hour or two in nature, picking fruit or running errands for your selection of adorable animal neighbors. Many steadfast Animal Crossing fans feared that Nintendo was going to lose the thread of what made their legendary franchise so appreciable when the news broke that there would be a mobile phone port of the title. Fortunately for us, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is just the right dose of relaxation with just the right dose of social outreach.

What makes Pocket Camp so perfect for both mobile gamers and social gamers is that it blends the aspects we love about Animal Crossing with the kind of outreach that we expect out of mobile titles. Pocket Camp takes you away from running your own village and plops you into your own campground, where you also have a camper that you can use to drive around the map. You’ll be picking fruit, fishing or running errands when you see the avatar of other gamers in the world. You can choose to visit their camp and see exactly how they’ve decided to decorate their space.

In the world of hyper-competitive and often-times violent video games, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is a nice way to turn back the clock and relax for a little bit at a time.


Animal Crossing Now Available For Your Phone

The wildly popular Nintendo game known as Animal Crossing is now available to virtually anyone with a smartphone. It was something that one would play on a gaming console in the past, but now it is available to those who just want to play a little something on their smartphone.

The app is called “Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp”, and it is in a lot of ways the same as the beloved game from Nintendo. The major difference is that it is not necessary to have a whole gaming system to luge along with you when you want to play. Just wipe out your smartphone and start playing.

It is free to get the app and start playing in the United States and the United Kingdom. However, there are a number of in-game purchases that a player may choose to make which bring more flavor to the game and make it a lot more fun.

For someone who has never heard of this game before, think of “the Sims” but with animal characters rather than humans. There is a lot of crossover similarity to that.

In the game, you are running a campsite that you must try to fill with all of the campsite essentials. This includes things like tents and furniture. However, you mostly want to attract as many guests to your campsite as possible. That is the only way that you will know that you have been truly successful in the game. Get those guests to come in, and you will have a lot of fun playing this one.
