As much as we’re curious, not everyone can hop in on the Animal Crossing fun because we’re not all capable of shelling out the moolah for a Nintendo Switch. The good thing is that there are other video games that give off the same fun and addicting vibes as the popular game. You don’t need to spend big money on a new console, too, because they’re all downloadable on mobile phones! Of course, nothing beats the OG game and all its glorious features, but we found a few Animal Crossing-esque mobile games to try if you’re currently on a budget:

Stardew Valley

Run your grandfather's farm over at Pelican Town and make it your own! From raising animals, taking care of crops, meeting other townspeople and dating them, there's plenty of stuff to busy yourself with.

Available on iOS and Adroid.

Seabeard

Seabeard is a RPG where the player takes on the role of captain Seabeard's only descendant. You get to build islands and go on adventures to explore other places and meet new creatures.

Hay Day

Hay Day is another farming fame where you tend to your uncle's farm, trade goods with other members of the community, and build your own town. If in-game graphics matter to you, the artwork in this game is also pretty cool!  

Available on iOS and Android.

Ankora

Unlike the other games mentioned in the list, Ankora isn't a farming game. The player assumes the role of Mûn, an explorer that crash-landed on a planet called Ankora. There, the player has to find means to survive hunger and stay alive to rebuild her space ship and send a distress signal. She isn't entirely alone, though, because she'll meet the Anks, an Ankora tribe with various jobs like farmers, merchants, and hunters.

Farmville 2: Country Escape

Remember Farmville on Facebook? Well, a version of it is also now available on mobile! It has similar features where you get to build your farm, meet new characters, and trade with neighbors. 

Available on iOS and Android.

Trade Island

As a tycoon, you get to build your own city the way you want it, produce goods, and earn some moolah. Go on quests and meet new characters while you're at it.

Available on iOS and Android.

Township

Who says you have to choose between the busy urban life and the quiet farm life? In Township, you get to seamlessly live the city life as well as perform your farm duties.

Available on iOS and Android.

LINE PLAY – Our Avatar World

Make your own avatar, change its outfits, and hang out with friends at the Square. Enjoy the super cute graphics while you're at it, too.
