Based on the popular animated series, Hilda Creatures is a gorgeous, magical game of discovery. It’s all about finding the wonder in nature as you encounter an array of cute (and occasionally not-so-cute) critters and gradually befriend them.
As the show’s intrepid blue-haired hero, you’ll travel between two distinctive maps: Hilda’s home in the wilderness and the city of Trolberg, each of which contains a handful of locations to visit.
Naturally, you’ll need some food to bring the creatures out of hiding. And they’ll need a reason to stick around, too. Place a guitar down and one might be tempted to give it a strum. Others are attracted by a comfortable toadstool to sit on, or the welcoming warmth of a log fire.
Some simply want you to pet them: gently stroking a docile Woff will soon bring a smile to its face. Others expect to be fed – pop a veggie burger or a delicious lingonberry muffin in their mouth to keep them happy – while others are intelligent and happy to answer a question or two.
But you’ll have to be patient. Like real wildlife, these timid creatures won’t emerge immediately. Close the app, wait for a notification and hop back in for the chance to meet a new furry friend. Just make sure you don’t leave it too long before checking in, or they might move on.
Over time you’ll learn more about their likes and dislikes as your bond with them grows stronger, while the acorns you’ll earn from each interaction can be put towards new objects.
Experiment with different item combinations and you may well encounter rare (and even super-rare) creatures. When you do, be sure to take a snap or three to fill up your scrapbook – which grows into a charming memento of a truly delightful adventure.
