We all love a good game to play on the go and with mobile gaming being at the forefront of the gaming spectrum we need to find you all something good. So what better choice than Nintendo’s own Animal Crossing Pocket Camp!? It looks, sounds, feels and even tastes just like a regular Animal Crossing game. For the uninitiated to the world of Animal Crossing it is essential a Sims like simulator where you control your character and help them to settle into a new town where they are either Mayor or just a resident. The games have evolved over time, allowing more character personalization and house design. It truly is a game that is as expansive as it is dynamic.

This latest addition to the Animal Crossing family is a fun one and plays out much like a traditional title, just with the mobile twist to it. You of course have animal campers to interact with AND other players to visit and meet! You can fish, catch bugs, set a fashion trend and deck-out your camper plus campground! Of course it wouldn’t be an Animal Crossing game without loans which jump up in the form of payments for expanding your van; which you can also customize inside. What makes the game so much fun is the simple fact that is is Animal Crossing on your phone! Nothing beats the melodic sounds, the animalese chatter and the iconic list of characters from the series. Not to mention being able to see what your friends are all up to makes it even better and throughly engaging.

Your friends are key to helping you get more bells and more goodies from the local mine. Just being able to interact with the people you know or may not know in this game feels so rewarding. It is like actually visiting them, but not actually visiting them. Then there are the animal dwellers of the land. These fine critters approach you with item request and campsite visit-challenges. These requests and challenges can net you bells, items and hearts; which act like experience points. Level up gets you access to to more critters who can visit your camp and more item access. So engaging with any animal you see is beneficial both from a social aspect and a gameplay one.

What the game doesn’t lack is content. With furniture-galore to craft it is hard to not find a style to hunt and grind in-game for. That has always been an engaging aspect of all other games before this one. Just knowing that I can tailor my campsite or camper to my hearts content is just worth it. Now of course this isn’t a game that will scratch everyones fancy and can come off as completely kid-ish. For those of you who enjoy killing time fishing, bug hunting or just socializing with wild animals, this is defiantly the game for you. There is just something that is so lax, so pleasing from just living a simple life through Animal Crossing that I cannot help but find myself enjoying this game in my free time. If you have been looking for the ultimate time cruncher that doesn’t require you burning a hole into you pocket, look no further than Animal Crossing Pocket Camp!
