Animal Crossing™: New Horizons
The entire Animal Crossing hype seems to get bigger with each passing day, and missing out on this huge social thing may start making some of us anxious. But what if you don't want to buy the console just to visit your friend's virtual island? Well, there is a solution, after all – this mobile game by Nintendo that borrows lots of features and the iconic visual style from its Switch counterparts.
Graphics and Sound 4/5
If you've seen or even played any Animal Crossing game, you'll be able to recognize the visual style of the entire series right away. Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is as cute, colorful, and detailed as its Switch versions, and the characters are equally adorable. The soundtrack is great and memorable, so it won't start annoying you even after a couple of hours, and the sound effects are nice, too.
Other Animal Crossing games make use of Switch buttons, allowing you to perform various actions quickly and easily. But how does this mobile game manages all of those actions? The answer is very simple – the buttons are replaced by taps. It doesn't matter if you want to craft something, invite any character to your campsite, or just buy some furniture – you can do it all and many more simply by tapping on the screen.
The overall gameplay concept of the series is simple: you play as a human that lives among animals that can be eventually befriended. The games don't have any clear objectives, and there's no way to win in the traditional sense – you just walk around the map, collecting items, trading resources for a new piece of furniture for your house, talking to other characters, and so on. Pocket Camp remains a part of that tradition, providing you with hundreds of items to find or craft, lots of animals to talk to, and a whole galaxy of activities, events, and challenges you can participate in.
Lasting Appeal 4.5/5
Pocket Camp is a life simulator in the best sense of that word, which means you can live in this game for weeks or even months. And its lack of victory conditions just makes it more deep and engaging.
Pocket Camp gives you a great opportunity to play Animal Crossing without buying Switch. It' a lot of fun, and it's free – so be sure to check it out.
