The Latest Update for ‘Thumper: Pocket Edition’ Adds a New Touch-Based Control Scheme and Much More

Breath of the Wild aside, Drool LLC’s chaotic ‘rhythm violence’ release Thumper [$ 4.99] was one of the first experiences that really ‘sold’ me on the Nintendo Switch. Seeing such a vibrant, colorful and complex indie classic make the transition to a handheld device just felt so perfect, and sure enough set a precedent for a deluge of titles to release on the hardware in the months afterwards. Despite this, there was a nagging voice in the back of my head that wondered ‘would this game be even better on iOS’, and as if the developers knew what a fantastic idea this would be, Thumper: Pocket Edition made its debut on the App Store last month. Taking full use of the Super Retina Display and extended real estate on the iPhone X, Thumper was a stunning romp for rhythm fans that went down a treat on our forums, despite some minor control niggles that emerged amongst our community. Thankfully, the developers have listened to feedback from fans, and have today released an update for Thumper that adds a new touch-based lane switch control scheme alongside a number of other welcome improvements.

In the 1.06 version of Thumper, the star feature is undoubtedly the aforementioned touch-based lane switch controls, which should an alternative option with added precision if the previous configurations didn’t sit well with you. Other additions include improved layout and visual quality of the menus and text within the game, better rendering quality for older devices with Apple’s A7 chip (so iPhone 5S and iPad Air users are covered), a moved and configurable pause button, Polish language support, and a number of smaller enhancements that are outlined in Drool’s latest tweet. Considering Thumper already had such a strong, critically-acclaimed base game to build on, these improvements only further support the argument that the iOS port is the best version of the game. At the very least, if you want a slick spectacle to show off your new iPhone, Thumper’s gloriously vibrant aesthetic design and blistering sense of speed are almost unmatched on the App Store. Download the latest 1.06 update for Thumper now, and let us know your impressions on our forum thread.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp: How to quickly complete the Host the Most event

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp has added five new animals and brought back the Host the Most mini event. Here’s how to welcome all the new animals and complete the event fast!!

Thanks to the Host the Most seven-day event, you have the opportunity to invite new friends to Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. During the event, if you host three animals at your Campsite that have never been invited before, you’ll earn big rewards! Here’s how to complete the Host the Most event the fastest way possible.

Invite any animals to your Campsite that you’ve been hoarding

At this point, many of us have either already welcomed all the new animals to our Campsite or have come close. If you prepared from the previous Host the Most event, you will have completed all of the requests for new animals, but not invited them to your Campsite (hint for the next Host the Most event: don’t invite animals to your campsite. Hold onto them until the next event). If there are any animals waiting to be invited to your Campsite, now is the time to ask three of them to join. If you have at least three animal friends waiting in the wings, you’re done. Event crushed!

Otherwise, you’ve got some work to do.

Craft items for animals you’re close to welcoming

If you have a few animals already visiting your campground that you’ve been working on getting all of the items they want before they’ll visit your Campsite, finish those up. Each crafting item might take a long time, but it’s possible you’ll use up fewer resources than trying to invite the brand new animals that have just been added. Depending on how many new items you have to craft, you might only have to take up one crafting table per request.

Level up those friendships!

All animals have a minimum Friendship Level requirement before they will visit your Campsite. Some are as low as Level 3, which you can accomplish with the first round of requests. Others are as high as Level 10. Once your character level (that’s you in the game) reaches higher levels, Friendship Level requirements go up, too.

Get those friendship levels to their minimum requirements as fast as possible. You might even want to use some of those Request Tickets to help improve your friendships.

The new animals – what they want and what they’ll give

Since Host the Most event is to celebrate the new additions, here’s a list of the new animals, what they want, and what rewards they give when you complete requests.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp: Everything you need to know!

Nintendo brings the Animal Crossing kingdom to mobile with a sweet little camping adventure!

If you play Animal Crossing, you’ve probably always wished you could bring your pals with you on your iPhone or Android device. Well, I’ve got good news for you. Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is just that — caring for your animal friends on the go! In this world, your fluffy friends are camping and it’s your job to make sure they have everything they need while enjoying the great outdoors. Here’s everything you need to know about Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.

February 13, 2018: Update 1.2.0 brings villager clothing and Brake Tapper mini-game!

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp just received another big update. This one brings with it a few new major features plus a plethora of minor changes.

  • Animal Clothing – You can now share some of your clothing with your animal friends. Animals have to reach a certain level before you can change their outfits. Not all animals need a change of clothing and some items can’t be used on certain animals. Changing an animal’s outfit will sometimes increase their Friendship level.
  • ** Two rugs are better than one** – You can finally put down two rugs at your Campsite instead of just one at a time.
  • New mini game – Head on over to OK Motors to play a slot machine style game and see what you win. Winners are rewarded with Caps, which can be used to exchange for in-game prices. Head over past the right of your camper when you visit OK Motors and tap the Brake Tapper to play a game. Each game costs 3 Friend Powder. Winnings will normally yield 5 Caps, but you could win big with up to 50 Caps. When you’ve earned some caps, talk to Carlo to exchange them for crafting materials, essence, and even exclusive OK Motors merchandise.
  • New way to add friends IRL – You can add friends that you’re standing next to by sending a tune. When your friend receives the little ditty and accepts your friend request, you’re in like Flynn!
  • Shovelstrike Quarry is easier to get in to – A minor update makes it possible for you to ask up to 10 friends at once with just a single tap. Just Ask for Help!
  • New conversations – There are new conversations to be had with visiting animals. Let’s hope they stop calling us a “fan” or “slacker.”
  • New requests – Animals will now ask for flowers as part of their requests. Looks like you’d better get back into gardening.
  • Skip Requests – If you don’t have the items an animal wants, you can now skip a request. You can’t skip the last request, though.

What’s new with Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp?

February 1, 2018: Lottie’s Gothic Rose Festival comes to Animal Crossing Pocket Camp

There’s a new garden event happening right now and it’s Lolita Gothic at its most adorable. Little Lottie the Otter needs help catching bats (because her favorite band likes them). Your job is to collect as many rare bats as possible by planting seasonal roses in your garden that will attract them. Share your bats with friends for rewards. Collect them to earn exclusive outfits and furniture from Lottie. Trade your harvested roses in to Lloid in exchange for important materials. The event is only 10 days long, from February 1 – 9, so get batty!

Lottie’s Gothic Rose Festival: Everything you need to know!

January 30, 2018: Host the Most invites new animals and a new theme- Hip!

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp have a new set of animals that want to join the camping fun. Not only are there now six new animal friends, but there is also a brand new theme; Hip! A new theme brings with it new craftable items, like mushroom and balloon furniture (for that creepy Pietro). Of course, a new theme also means new amenities. You can build a Mush tent and follow it up with a Patchwork Ghost Sofa! The six new animals added to the game are as follows:

  • Francine
  • Stitches
  • Merengue
  • Bob
  • Twiggy
  • Pietro

Remember, all of these animals are of the Hip theme.

To celebrate the addition of these animals, Nintendo is running the Host with the Most event again, which means there are stretch goals that reward Hip essence when you invite four new animals to your Campsite. The Host the Most event is only seven days long, ending February 5, so you’d better get out there and help some campers!

January 22, 2018: Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Winter Sports event is here!

On the exact closing day of Rover’s Garden Safari event, a new reason to keep camping has arrived. Starting Jan. 21 at midnight ET, players were presented with the latest bit of fun — the Winter Sports event. In this go-around, players collect Snowflakes to craft adorable figure-skating and snowboarding outfits. Plus, you can add an ice rink and snowboard ramp to your Campground. It’s pretty much exactly like the rules for the Holiday event and New Year’s event, but in case you need a little help, we’ve updated our Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp event guide for you.

How to get everything in the Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Winter Sports event

January 18, 2018: Craft your own outfit with the new clothing crafting feature in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp

There’s been an empty tab since the game launched. Crafting clothing was on the horizon, but not yet available… until now. Thanks to an overnight update, the clothing craft tab is now up and running. The best thing is that crafting an outfit is just as easy as crafting furniture. Right now, all of the clothing items require either paper or cotton (except glasses, which require steel), and don’t really need that much material. Most of then call for 15 – 30 of one or the other. There are a few “high price ticket” items that require 60 cotton, but that’s the most expensive it gets.

To get started making your perfect outfit, go to the Crafting tab, then select the T-shirt icon to see everything you can create and wear.

There’s also a couple of timed goals relating to clothing crafting, but they’re pretty easy to complete. Craft one item for five Leaf Tickets and craft three items for five more Leaf Tickets. In the Stretch Goals section, you’ll note that crafting clothing has been added to the list, too. Craft one clothing item for 20 paper and craft five clothing items for five Leaf Tickets.

January 11, 2018: Rover’s Garden Safari event comes to Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp

There’s a new winter event sitting in your garden right now. Rover’s Garden Safari event runs from January 11 – January 21. Your goal is to collect as many rare winter butterflies as possible by planting flowers in your garden that will attract them. Share your butterflies with friends for rewards. Collect a certain number of them to earn exclusive furniture from Rover. Trade your harvested dahlias in to Lloid in exchange for crafting materials. The event is only 10 days long, so you’d better start planting!

Rover’s Garden Safari: Everything you need to know!

January 6, 2018: New animals come to Animal Crossing Pocket Camp

This time, there isn’t any timed goals in the Host the Most event. You will, however, earn extra happiness points for your friendship levels between January 6 and 12. Be sure to welcome Sprinkle, Ava, Boots, and Static by leveling up your friendships with them and crafting the items they want to see in your Campsite.

December 26, 2017: New Year’s Event brings New Year’s-theme craftable items and clothing!

As the current year draws to an end and the new year begins, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp welcomes the future with 10 new items plus two New-Year’s themed outfits and a pair of sandals. Just like the holiday event, players collect Countdown Charms by completing requests from animals in the campground. You can craft the items using the Countdown Charms. The Haori, Kimono, and Kimono Sandals are rewards for completing timed goals within the event’s timeframe, which is just 15 days long this time.

The New Year’s Event runs December 25, 2017 at 12:00 AM ET through January 10, 2018 at 11:59 PM ET.

December 21, 2017: Host the Most invites new animals and a new theme- Rustic!

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp players woke up (or stayed up late enough) to see a new set of animals that want to join the camping fun. Not only are there now seven (yes, seven!) new animal friends, but there is also a brand new theme; Rustic! A new theme brings with it new craftable items, like a cowhide rug and brick fireplace. There’s even a covered wagon! Of course, a new theme also means new amenities. You can build a rustic tent and follow it up with a canvas hammock, and then a hot air balloon! The seven new animals added to the game are as follows:

  • Marshal
  • Mitzi
  • Goose
  • Drake
  • June
  • Avery
  • Vesta

Remember, all of these animals are of the Rustic theme.

To celebrate the addition of these animals, Nintendo is running the Host with the Most event again, which means extra happiness points whenever you complete requests for any animal in the campground. Stretch goals this time go up to seven new animals hosted at your site. You can earn up to 30 Leaf Tickets for your effort. The Host the Most event is only seven days long, so you’d better get out there and help some campers!

December 18, 2017: Update 1.1.0 brings gardening!

Animal Crossing: Pocket camp has been updated with some new content, the biggest being that gardening has been added to the things you can do in your Campsite. It’s off to the left of your camper. After talking to Isabelle, you’ll be directed to get some help from Lloid where he will help you get started with your garden. Grow flowers and cross-pollinate them to produce rare flowers. Trade those flowers to Lloid in exchange for items you can place in your Campsite.

How to get rare flowers in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp

The update also added Screenshot mode so you can show off your Campsite layout, the rare fish you’ve caught, and other awesome things you can do.

There’s also a new way to add friends. You can send a link instead of sharing your long, complicated code that doesn’t even copy properly in text messages (thank goodness).

Most of the rest of the update covers minor user interface tweaks, like warning messages when you’re about to craft something you already own or hints for how to obtain items.

The update is available now in the App Store.

  • Raddle – Cool

The Host the Most limited Timed Goals include hosting one, two, three, and four animals at your campsite and reward 10 or 20 Leaf Tickets, six Request Tickets, and three Call Tickets. It only lasts five more days, so get started!

November 21, 2017

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is rolling out worldwide a day early. So far, it has officially launched in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Japan (as well as Australia, where it’s been available for a month).

  • Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on the App Store – Download now
  • Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on Google Play – Download now

November 20, 2017

Nintendo announced today through the official Animal Crossing Twitter account that the game will launch worldwide on Wednesday, Nov. 22. Just in time for Thanksgiving!

October 25, 2017

Nintendo has officially announce the existence of Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. It’s coming to iOS and Android “in November,” but we don’t have a specific launch date at this time. It seems to be available right now in Australia. If you’re so inclined, you can download and play the game before it’s officially launched in your country, but you have to do a little bit of “cheating” to get it. NintendoLife has a detailed guide for downloading Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp right now, but it’s a complicated process. I suggest waiting. It’ll probably be in your country really soon.

What is Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp?

Similar to its console counterpart, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is a time-based simulation game where players act as a caretaker for a group of adorable animals. In the mobile spinoff, you’re in charge of a campsite instead of a village.

You play a campsite manager whose job it is to create the ideal “glamping” spot for your animal friends. As you perform tasks around the campground, like harvesting fruit and helping out visitors, you’ll earn materials that you can take to the blacksmith to turn into cool furniture. The more decked out your campsite gets, the more animals will visit.

You’ll also earn “leaf tickets” (and other items), which are in-game currency that can be used to speed up how long it takes to harvest items, finish tasks, craft items, and more.

How much does it cost?

That’s an interesting question. It doesn’t cost anything to download and install the game. It also doesn’t cost anything to start playing the game. It is, however, the type of game that uses in-game currency, which you can use to speed up how often you can collect items, craft furniture, and more. So, for some, this free game might cause them to go bankrupt (my best friend already said she won’t even download the game because she’s afraid she’ll spend her entire paycheck on it).

After playing the game for about a month and leveling my character to 23 (as of this writing), I can confirm that this is not the type of game that will make you pay to play. I never felt obligated to spend real cash at all to progress. Based on my experience of the past month, I’d bet that Nintendo will make it’s money by offering special items that you can buy during holiday events and the like. These would be nothing more than cosmetic upgrades, but us collectors will put our money down on limited edition items any day of the week.

What devices can I play it on?

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is available on iOS and Android devices. As long as you sign in with your Nintendo Account, your game progress can be saved across devices.

  • Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on the App Store – Download now
  • Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on Google Play – Download now

How do I play?

ACPC is simple to play, but it’s important to strategize your plan so you don’t make mistakes early on that you wish you could go back and fix. We’ve got a comprehensive beginner’s guide and a list of tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your game.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp: How to change an animal’s clothing

Give your animal friends a completely different look by sharing your outfits with them!

You know all of those shirts, sweaters, hats, and glasses you’ve been collecting since the start of Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp? Well you can put them to good use now by letting other animals dress up, too. If you have more than one of the same shirt, you might even end up as “twinsies” with your favorite villager. Here’s everything you need to know about changing villagers’ clothing.

How to change a villager’s outfit

All you have to do is ask!

Tap an animal that’s visiting your campsite and then tap Change Outfit! You’ll then see all of the clothing you own that can be shared with the animal.

Select a shirt, dress, hat, or glasses and tap Wear to make the change.

Animals will earn two Friendship points for the first outfit change of a cycle rotation.

Animals must be in your Campsite in order to change clothing

Animals in the wild don’t want to change their clothing. You’ll have to invite them to your campsite if you want to see them in one of your adorable shirts.

If you tap an animal in your Campsite and it doesn’t bring up the option to change an outfit, tap the animal again. Sometimes they don’t realize you want to help them out.

Animals have to reach a certain level before they can change outfits

New visitors to your Campsite are not quite as trusting as old friends. That’s why animals have to reach a certain Friendship Level before you can change their outfits.

There is no official information about the minimum level requirements, but I was able to change outfits on a villager that was only at Friendship Level 6, so I’m guessing it’s pretty low, maybe Friendship Level 3.

Some animals can’t wear certain clothing items

You may have three dozen pairs of cargo pants, but guess what. Animals in ACPC don’t wear pants! Some clothing items just won’t be offered to your animal friends when you’re changing their outfits. Things like pants, shoes and socks are a no-go. You also won’t see any flowers, wigs, or hoods in their closet.

Any questions?

Do you have any questions about how to dress up villagers in new outfits? Put them in the comments and I’ll help you out.

Ok, so, a little game called Final Fantasy (maybe you’ve heard of it?) decided to release its latest mobile version a little earlier than planned, so Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition is kind of dominating this week’s list of new releases arriving one day earlier than its previously announced February 9th release date.

If you were stuck on a desert island and could only take one app with you, which app would you take? Yeah, probably some sort of “come and rescue me” app. But while you waited for help to arrive, you could use an app like Island Golf to help pass the time!

Island Golf is a simple, easy-to-play arcade game where you play a quick round of golf with fairways on little lonely islands. There’s no complex system of club types, swing meters or wind direction here. You just tap, drag, and release to take a shot.

Every day a new course appears. See if you can beat par on each hole, and how low you can score through all 18. If you do well, you may even make the high score board for that day. If not, there’s always tomorrow.

Just Slide

iTunes Description

You can’t run, can’t flip, can’t even jump, all you can do is Just Slide!

Do you like casual, one-tap and one-finger controls in games?
Bad news, we don’t have it. Why? Because it’s boring and not even close to challenging.

Imagine blob, cat, doge, rabbit, ghost or even santa. Now put them on oiled, very slippery and rotating platform. And finally drop tons of deadly traps, spikes, bombs, arrows and black holes. Perfect. Now you have to save them without losing your mind. Welcome to ‘Just Slide’.

Ninja Attack!

iTunes Description

The year: 1984. The place: Brooklyn, New York Dojo Number 7. The time: of no real consequence.

“Ninja Attack!” is the result of a bizarre thesis statement: If Hunter S. Thompson was head of the art department at the Sega Corporation Ltd. in the early 80s, what would the bonus round in Shinobi look like?

RPG Dragon Lapis

iTunes Description

The dawn of a new hero!

A thousand years ago, a great battle ensued between two dragons, one gold and the other silver, where they were sealed away. However, the real tale begins many centuries later after the Silver Dragon reawakens, and launches an assault on a frontier village in the far north.

There, a royal knight by the name of Lucas serves as a guard after being relegated to the rural and much isolated location by the King. Yet, little does he know he is, in fact, a descendant of the hero, Alaric, who once sealed the Gold and Silver Dragons in human form. Nonetheless, when tragedy strikes, he soon finds his place, and after teaming up with a band of unlikely companions, sets out on an adventure to save the world.
