What is Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp?

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is the mobile compliment to Nintendo’s Animal Crossing franchise. Players have the opportunity to customize their campsite manager-character and campsite, in this community-oriented role playing game.


The more players help the friendly animals in the game, the higher their friendship level and the more rewards they receive. Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is free to download and play for iOS and Androids, but does feature in-app purchases.

Organized as a world on a grid system, players may travel throughout to different activity-oriented locations, which include a fishing area, bug catching, and a quarry for players to mine and collect gems.


It’s important to note, however, that traveling or switching to different locations does present a bit of load time.


Acting as campsite managers, players in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp are issued campsites and RVs, both of which are customizable. Players roam throughout the Animal Crossing world collecting items in nature, which can then be “crafted” into furniture and other campsite amenities.


Players simply collect the items needed to craft the desired piece, a chair for example, and then place their order with a craftsman. Once an order is placed the item is put on a wait list and players must wait out the timer for completion and delivery or use Leaf Tickets to pay to have their order expedited.


Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp offers players two types of goals to keep players engaged: daily timed goals and stretch or long-term goals.


Daily timed goals are simple tasks, such as collecting conch shells or visiting other player campsites, which upon completion are rewarded with game currency or other sought-after items.


Stretch goals in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, are more like long scavenger-hunt-type lists, which encourage users to engage and travel throughout the game world. Stretch goal tasks include such things as buying an item from Market Box or using a Request Ticket.


While Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is being played in real time with other players populating the same world, there is no avenue for interaction among players apart from simply visiting their campsite.


Players wishing to progress or level up in the game should focus on activities involving their animal friends, specifically when they need help with a task. Players’ Friendship Levels are rewarded when they help out the animals with the Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp app, which are often accompanied by rewards of items players need to go through the game.

An internet connection is necessary for players to play Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp and many of the activities within the app require wait times to complete or upgrade.
