There's a ton of items to collect and decorate with, so go crazy!

Customize your campsite and camper
Fulfill requests

Fulfill requests. The animals that visit the campground will request items from you, which raise your friendship levels with them. You'll want to get high levels because it raises your character's level, meaning more rewards, animals, and items become available.

Do various activities. Each area on the map of the campground has a different activity to do. You can fish in bodies of water, catch bugs on trees, or gather fruits. You'll need these items to give to your animal friends when they request them.

What is it about?

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is a definite iOS stand out, but Nintendo is competing with themselves more than other iOS developers. Pocket Camp isn’t without its problems especially compared to its predecessors on Nintendo consoles. Animal Crossing first launched in the US on the Gamecube, and comparing Pocket Camp to the Gamecube original is where Pocket Camp struggles. The biggest difference between the two can be summed up with one word, variety.

Why we love it

The original Animal Crossing’s best attribute is the very distinct personalities of each animal character that you encountered. Pocket Camp on the other hand gives a lot less personality to the characters to the point that the first few conversations of each character offer tips on how to play the game. Not only that, but there is a specific set of characters in the game so that each friend you visit will likely have the same characters in their camp, as yours. Each village in the original Animal Crossing had a unique set of characters to build upon the personality variation of the in-game ecosystem. Speaking of village variation, the original Animal Crossing also had a ton of different items to unlock. When you visit a friend’s house, there are all new items to give you inspiration in decorating your own house. In Pocket Camp, there are so many fewer decor choices, so that each friend’s camp looks almost identical to each others and yours.
