    Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is a great mobile version of the popular simulation game. I was afraid that Nintendo may ruin Animal Crossing on iOS (Super Mario Run didn't do that great after the initial launch), but Pocket Camp is fantastic for what it is — a mobile version of a fun simulation game. It may be a watered down version of previous games, but there's still plenty to do and collect in Pocket Camp.

    What I feel is lacking though is the kudos system would be more compatible if it had actual influence beyond the occasional quest. I’d really like to reward those who give me kudos often.

    It's an Animal Crossing faithful to the essence of the saga.

    This new entry does certainly offer a good Animal Crossing experience despite its limitations. The main issue is that the relationships have not much interest as they all say almost the same things everyday. Buy the craft methods and leveling system are pretty interesting for the future of the franchise.

    Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp isn’t the perfect mobile iteration of the series that we wanted, but it’s great for a smile throughout the day.

    Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is a simple and effective time-killer that doesn't push its free to play elements in your face.

    This is not the relaxed, goalless Animal Crossing you know, this mobile version is just about money making. Very disappointing.

    If you have played an animal crossing game before, you know that it's kind of difficult to edit your house. Here they have fixed everything.

The graphics look really good for a mobile game, the characters are friendly and cute even if simplified for phone, and the gameplay is the fetching of items that make up animal crossing but without anything else.

    Story there isn’t anything to say as it is mostly just a tending to a camp, but you don’t play these games for a gripping story. Basically if you like animal crossing this is a taste of it or a version aimed at very little kids to introduce them to it. No, it won’t keep you entertained long and it isn’t a full animal crossing but it does what you’d expect of it.
