  • Hi everyone!

  • There's a new game

  • From the makers of Neko Atsume, the cat collecting game

  • And this time it's a frog game

  • It's got the same art style

  • And it's really cute

  • I put some pictures on Twitter

  • And some of you were asking what it was

  • So I thought I'd make a video to tell you all about it

  • And how to play

  • It's all in Japanese

  • But it's really easy

  • So you can still play even if you don't know any Japanese

  • It's available on iTunes & Android for free

  • I'll put the links in the description

  • So what happens in the game?

  • Basically, you pack items into a frog's backpack

  • He goes off travelling

  • Then brings you back souvenirs

  • And photos of where he's been

  • And that's it

  • There's little surprises

  • And it's really cute

  • So, like Neko Atsume

  • It's a low maintenance, waiting-type game

  • That you open up every now and again

  • To see what's going on

  • So it's not going to be a massive time drain

  • And the music's really cute as well!

  • That was one of my favourite things about Neko Atsume

  • How the music was really soothing

  • Especially when you're feeling stressed

  • It's called Tabikaeru

  • Tabi means journey or travelling

  • And kaeru means to come back

  • And it also means frog

  • So it's the perfect name

  • Next I'm going to tell you how to play

  • Then I've got some tips for you

  • But first, if you like cute things

  • Have a look at my designs

  • I love drawing cute characters

  • And I put them on t-shirts

  • Cushions

  • Dresses

  • And enamel pins

  • You can see them all on cakeswithfaces.co.uk

  • Or Cakes with Faces on Etsy

  • So how to play

  • In this game

  • Your currency is clover

  • Like the fish in Neko Atsume

  • They grow in the garden

  • Or sometimes you're given them

  • You harvest by tapping

  • Or dragging your finger over them

  • They make a really satisfying springy popping sound

  • With the clover

  • You can then buy items for your frog

  • For his travels

  • Like food, good luck charms and travelling equipment

  • The shop icon's in the bottom right

  • With the picture of the two bags

  • The hiragana says "o-mise"

  • Which means shop

  • It helps if you learn the hiragana for yes and no

  • Hai and iie

  • If you don't know hiragana

  • Iie is the one with all the vertical lines

  • The other icon in the bottom right

  • With the house

  • Takes you inside the frog's house

  • So you can see all his stuff

  • And it's really cute

  • Tap the bottom left to open up the frog's backpack

  • And you can pack items in 3 categories:

  • "O-bento" (food)

  • Good luck charms and equipment

  • You don't have to fill up all the spaces

  • Then he's ready to go travelling

  • You don't have to do anything to make him go

  • Just pack up his bag

  • And he'll go when he's ready

  • To go back to the garden,

  • Tap the icon in the bottom right

  • That looks like a letterbox

  • In the menu in the top right

  • You can see the souvenirs and pictures you've collected

  • You can also get to it with the little doorway with the curtains inside the house

  • To get to the back room

  • So the game's all about seeing where the frog goes

  • Saving up for more expensive items

  • And little surprises along the way

  • Like sometimes there's a visitor

  • Quite early on I had a visit from this cute snail!

  • You can give the visitors food

  • And sometimes they send you something as a thank you

  • There's also a lottery

  • Which is something you might not realise is there at first

  • So how do you get a lottery ticket

  • Sometimes, like when you've had a visitor

  • There's a letter in the mailbox

  • Tap it, then tap hai to view an advert

  • You need an internet connection

  • Sometimes you get a lottery ticket from the frog as well

  • You need 5 tickets to play

  • Go to the shop and tap the icon in the top right

  • At the top it tells you how many tickets you've got

  • If you've got 5, you can tap "mawasu" to play

  • If you get a white ball

  • It means you've lost

  • And if you get a coloured ball, you win a prize!

  • There's special items like train tickets

  • And special treats

  • Finally, a few tips for you

  • Number one: Before the frog's first trip

  • You have to close the app then open it back up again

  • Sometimes it might seem like a long time

  • Before the frog comes back

  • Or it might seem like nothing's happened

  • But it's a waiting game

  • You just have to wait

  • Number 2

  • If the frog's not there

  • You can leave items on his desk

  • And he'll take them with him when he next goes on a trip

  • You get to the desk

  • The same way you get to the bag

  • Don't press the button at the bottom of the desk

  • Because it clears away all the items

  • When you're done, just press the cross

  • It is ok to press the button at the bottom of the bag

  • You can tell the difference:

  • The bag is blue

  • And the desk is yellow

  • It's best to leave items on his desk

  • Just to make sure he doesn't go away with nothing

  • Number 3

  • If the frog does go out without anything

  • And doesn't come back

  • You can tempt him back with food

  • Just put some food on the desk

  • And he'll come back

  • Number 4

  • When you get a photo from the frog

  • It's not saved automatically

  • Press the button to add it to your album

  • And number 5

  • Where the frog goes

  • Depends on what you pack

  • So if you give him more expensive food

  • Or fancier equipment

  • He can go on longer, more exotic trips

  • And bring you back better souvenirs

  • The type of equipment determines where he goes

  • So it's all about making different combinations

  • And trying to collect all the souvenirs

  • And that's it

  • The links to download it are in the description

  • Tell me in the comments how you get on

  • If you want to see more of my artwork

  • Follow Cakes with Faces on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram

  • And I've just booked my next trip to Japan

  • So there'll be new Japan videos coming up soon

  • There's also a few more Disney World videos for you as well

  • So I'll see you soon

  • Bye bye!

Hi everyone!
