Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is a free mobile game released in Fall of 2017.
In the free mobile game, the player can finish requests for animals by catching bugs and fish, or getting fruit from trees. In exchange, the player will get crafting materials to make items to put in your camp. Some villagers like certain items and the player can invite them to their camp once they get their favorite items.
Catching Fish[edit | edit source]
To catch fish in Pocket Camp, the player can go to two different areas on your map: Lost Lure Creek or Saltwater Shores. Lost Lure Creek will have freshwater fish and Saltwater Shores will have sea fish. Once the player gets to either of the places, the player will have a fishing rod in hand, and they can tap the water when they see a fish, and once it bites, if the player taps again, they will catch it.
Catching Bugs[edit | edit source]
To catch bugs in Pocket Camp, the player can go to Sunburst Island, and there will be 4 trees. Bugs will spawn on them very often. If the player wanta to catch one, they can simply tap the bug, wait for their player to get close, and tap when the screen shows a giant message saying “Tap!”
Collecting Fruit (and Coconuts)[edit | edit source]
To collect fruit, the player can go to Lost Lure Creek or Breezy Hollow, and then some trees will have fruit on them. You can tap a tree, then fruit will fall and the player can collect it. It will take 3 hours to regenerate or, if you use fertilizer, you can regrow it instantly. The same goes for coconuts, which can be found on Saltwater Shores and Sunburst Island.
Events[edit | edit source]
Every month there will be an event revolved around a specific theme, such as a wedding theme, that will have three 6-10 day events to earn furniture and items that are limited time for the month. At the beginning of the month, there will be a gardening event, where the player catch bugs by planting specific flowers, and then as the player catches more bugs, they get more rewards. Usually this event rewards the player with clothing and small accessories. The second monthly event is a fishing tourney, that is usually ran by C.J. (or Zipper during Easter) who asks the player to catch sparkling tourney fish. Each fish will have a certain length, and the higher the player's total length goals go, the more rewards they get. Usually the rewards are furniture items. The 3rd and final event of each month is a gyroidite scavenger hunt. Gyroidites are mini gyroids that can be used to craft some limited time items. If the player does all the tasks in all 3 events, they will slowly get special material that progresses their monthly goals, and they can get the big special item of the month.
Fortune Cookies[edit | edit source]
Fortune cookies are an edible item that the player can get furniture out of. Usually each month there will be limited time fortune cookies that the player can get special items from. The cookies are based around certain villager hobbies. There are also common cookies, such as Timmy or Tommy's cookie.
