Update: Animal Crossing Pocket Camp

With all of the recent updates that I been released for Animal Crossing, I’ve decided to review the new updates. If you would like to read my previous statements, click here.

Some of the most recent updates included a lot of fun events center around the season. They are really fun to participate in and don’t require too much extra effort. You just have to remember that the event is occurring and to purchase the special items. Another event was a butterfly event that was fun to take place in. Once again, the game practically holds your hand along the way to the event. For this event, you just had to plant seeds that the different animals gave you and catch butterflies that came to feed. The only thing I wished happened was that the catch rate was slightly higher. It felt that the catch rate was way too low at the level of catching I was at.

An overall new update is the crafting of clothing. It’s a nice update considering the fact that there is only a small chance of clothes you may want showing up. One thing I wish was available was that you can choose color options that you want and patterns. I understand in this phase of the development of the app that they may not be able to do that, but I would like that. There is some clothing that is not to my tastes, but I can definitely see them being someone else’s.

Puzzles for Furniture

Another game that has been holding my attention lately has been Matchington Mansion. The basic premise is that an author leaves you her house after dying of old age, and you and your friend are fixing the house up. In other words, it is a Match-3 game. It is a concept that has been done a couple of times in different settings but for some reason, I love this one. It might have to do with the fact that the best friend has a likable personality or the fact that I don’t have to wait hours on end in order to play again. The levels also fluctuate in difficulty. After an especially difficult level, the difficulty slightly ramps down a little bit. Also, after introducing a new gameplay dynamic, the difficulty becomes easier before slowly ramping up again. I like the art style and story. Other games that I play with this style don’t have this story component, which means that I don’t have a need to go back. I have played a couple of these types of games, I usually become bored after a couple of days of play. This one, I have been playing for the last couple of weeks. I think the short refresh time helps keep my interest. I would definitely suggest this game. You can get it on Andriod, iOS, and different online platforms.

Sweet Little Animal Friends

My latest gaming obsession has been Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. It’s really adorable, and I play whenever I have the time. At the time of writing this blog post, I am at level 33, and I have 20 animals that can come to my campsite. For the people that have no clue what I’m talking about, leveling is through the relationships that you make with the different animals that live in the camp. The closer you get with animals, the higher you level gets as well as your friendship. In order to get animals to your “home” or campsite, you have to reach a certain friendship level and have certain items at your house. The higher the friendship level, the harder it becomes to get to the next level. In other words, if you have yet to start this fun game, you should really get on that. Playing this game is what you need in your life. It is available for Andriod and iOS. Since having friends is essential for this game, my friend code is 1892 9004 070. Feel free to friend me. Hope to see you in the woods.

Taking Over Old Kingdoms

So, I’ve been kinda obsessed with mobile games recently. This is a totally new development. Don’t you worry. (I’m totally lying. I love mobile games.) The most recently one that I’ve been playing at least a couple of times a day is called Polytopia. It is a strategy, turn-based game where your characters are people from older kingdoms, of course given random names because of … copyright(?). Each civilization has different starting points in the tech tree that you have. You start with four different civilization, but you can unlock more the better you get. There is even a pass and play mode so that you can decide who of your friend group is the best at strategizing. (It’s totally going to be you, right?) The graphics are the cute blocky design that I absolutely love and as a love of variations for a free game. And it’s available for iOS and Android.

I’m going to go and play more now.

You Shouldn’t Put Power in My Hands

Recently, I have discovered the mobile game “Balance.” Balance is a blocky puzzle and logic game. The goal is to give cities power. Sounds simple right. Well, it starts that way, then it makes you want to pull your hair out when if has puzzles off the course that make no sense to you. Trust me. I spent all night trying to figure out one of the puzzles, but once you start doing it, it makes sense. Sorta. Small wires can’t handle currents as well as bigger ones, but then the length of the wire also needs to be taken into consideration. It’s very trial and error. I’m still trying to completely finish this game (with all 3 stars), but I would definitely check this out if you can. It is available for Android and iOS.

Also, please recommend more puzzle games that are like Candy Crush. I’m always looking for more that I can waste playing. (Pretty Please)

Skiing for Llamas

I know it has been a long time, but life happens. I’m sure everyone understands that to some extent. For the last day though, I have been completely addicted to the game Alto’s Adventure. The premise of it is that you are on an adventure in a snowy landscape while collecting llamas. It sounds silly, but the game is completely addicting in your attempt to get better scores and unlock new characters. Not only is the game simple to play, but animation style is simply beautiful with its simplistic style. Definitely a must get, but you might what to keep you phone on a charger while playing it.

Get the game on Android, iOS and Kindle Fire.
