Animal Crossing is one of Nintendo's most popular games, and for good reason. It offers a relaxing and creative gameplay experience that is fun for all ages, while also offering players the opportunity to build friendships with other residents of their town. The game allows players to become master gardeners, fishers, or even mayors. Players can dig holes, chop down trees, and shake bushes to find resources like wood or fruit.
While the game does have a ton of things to do, there are some hidden secrets that are not readily apparent. For instance, you can speed up the crafting of DIY projects by rapidly pressing the A button. Also, shaking trees can sometimes result in a surprise discovery such as a centipede or a tin can.
One of the most useful items in the game is apples, which can be used to create furniture and tools for your home. Apples can also be sold at Tom Nook's Cranny for a fair amount of cash.
To collect apples, players will need a net. This can be purchased at Timmy and Tommy's store or crafted with three tree branches and a piece of string. Once the net is equipped, players can head to their island and locate any apple trees. Players can then use the net to knock down any apples that fall off the trees, allowing them to be collected by walking over them.
There are also a variety of other items that can be picked up in the game, including tree branches, weeds, and fruits that have been knocked from the trees. To pick up these items, players will need to stand on or near the item and then press Y. The item will then be added to the player's inventory.
