Pocket Build is one of those insanely relaxing games that you can play in sandbox mode, letting your creativity roam free and keeping the challenge levels as high or as low as you wish. There is no end goal in the game and apart from building your own pocket world, there’s not really much gameplay involved either in the beautiful Pocket Build.
But there are still things that should be discussed – one of them being how to get food in Pocket Build, one of my main problems for a long while in the game. There are other things as well, with interesting secrets (not very well kept though) to be discovered in today’s Pocket Build tips and tricks strategy guide.
Remember, you can play this game exactly as you can see fit: there is no right or wrong, no actual way to play it better than another. But if you want to make sure that you know about all the options that you have in the game and make sure that you take advantage of all the features, then read on for some Pocket Build tips and tricks below!
How to get food in Pocket Build?
This almost drove me crazy early on when I started playing. I got all sorts of animals, let them roam free or crammed them all together between fences with all my people… but nothing happened. No extra food was gained.
That’s how I learned that, at least at the moment of writing this article, the animals are not fully implemented in the game and they’re purely decorative.
If you want to increase your food, though, you will need two things: people to collect the food and farming stuff placed on your land. In order to get the “farming stuff” simply tap the tree icon, then select the “farming” option. Any item you place from there, such as the grains, pumpkins, cabbage etc will be harvestable by your citizens, increasing your food count.
How to get wood in the game?
With wood, things will probably be a bit easier as you place trees early on in each game. And that’s all that you have to do: simply place a few trees (or more) and have people that can reach them. They will start chopping them down, giving your wood in return. And the trees will instantly grow back, so you don’t have to worry about planting and replanting them over and over again.
What are the different types of people for?
There are various types of people that you can get for your pocket world, but the truth is that at the moment there’s not much of a difference. No matter which character you choose, they will all do the same things. In other words, The King won’t have anything against cutting trees or gathering crops next to a Worker.
They are just for roleplaying right now and most likely future updates will make things a bit more specialized… but until that happens, there’s no real difference between a peasant and a king in the game right now.
Goblins vs Humans
There is a difference between Goblins and Humans, though. If you put them together, for example, you will see them start fighting. This adds a bit of diversity when it comes to building your world, as it allows for creating two factions, for example… but you don’t have to go this route if you don’t want to.
But to have in mind that if you put Golbins and Humans together, they will start fighting! But the good news is that, even after they get killed, you can still revive them for free at any time.
How to keep challenging yourself
Pocket Build is all about building and creating, not about achieving milestones or completing missions in regular gameplay fashion. However, if you start to lose focus and interest in the game, you can set your own goals. For example, task yourself with creating a mountain city or a huge port, a huge castle or a goblin den with humans trapped in pens and kept as slaves to feed the animals, harvest crops and cut the trees.
If you want to take things further, don’t forget that you can tap every character in the world and give them a name. This makes it even easier to roleplay and build a kingdom that really is yours.
Use your own imagination and create your own challenges, building epic things in this charming game. That’s all it is about, in the end!
