Crossing of animals: Pocket Camp has become a bit more like the Animal Crossing games that we love and remember, with a great update that introduces an interior design component.
Happy Homeroom is a new location on the Pocket Camp map, where players can participate in a mini-game design that challenges their stylistic talents. Lavie, maven from the Happy Home Academy, which Animal Crossing fans have met for the first time Animal Crossing: Happy House Designer on 3DS, teaches interior decoration courses. Joined by a panel of judges, Lottie occupies tasks that require preparing a room according to the specific tastes of the camper.
If the jury judges the touches and thinks that they match the chosen theme, the players will be given a passing score and a higher ranking by the Happy Home Academy. It's more like winning the right to boast than anything else, although very good designers will earn the equipment needed to build rare gold furniture. (They will also have a nice jacket.)
Happy Homeroom requires a special voucher that players receive daily. It also requires a lot of furniture, which, if you're a long player like mine, is a challenge in itself. The mini-game requires players to draw from their own inventories rooms for their animal friends. If Goldie wants a ranch-themed room and you do not have ranch-themed furniture, well, you're not happy.
For many of us, Animal Crossing fans, designing tiny rooms like this one is really great. Even if it's just a small room and not a camping or a van like the rest of the Pocket Camp lets, these mini-games are a fun and familiar diversion from the more non-traditional mobile gaming setup.
This is the last update of the past few weeks, although Polygon felt that February's earlier additions were "strangely counterintuitive to its friendly core."
