Animin are cute digital creatures that live on your mobile phone or tablet – and, magically, you can bring them into the real world around you. Once you have an Animin to look after, you will find that you can have endless fun with him or her. Here’s how:
Just like real pets, you have to look after your Animin. Which means feeding them (make sure you pick healthy food), giving them medicine when they are sick and cleaning up any nasty messes that they make. If they are happy and healthy (which can see in their Stats screen), they will reward you with Zef tokens. Collect enough of those, and your Animin will evolve!
Animin comes with two fun mini-games: Cannon Clash and Box Land. It’s a good idea to play them a lot, since that is how you will exercise your Animin. And every time you play, you’ll get a lovely chest full of Zef tokens at the end.
There are loads of fun objects in Animin which you can get your Animin to play with. By far the naughtiest one is the Fart Button: get your Animin to pick it up, touch him and he will make some very rude noises. Plus there are various instruments that let you and your Animin make music, a camera which lets you take selfies with your Animin, a lightbulb which lights him up, a calendar and loads more. Play with your Animin lots, and you will start to rack up plenty of Achievements.
Each of the four Animin, T-Bo, Kelsey, Pi and Mandi, have three stages of evolution. They start of as babies, but as you nurture, exercise and play with them, you can collect Zef tokens which cause them to evolve first into children, then adults. Get collecting Zef, and you’ll be able to live a whole life with your Animin.
To bring your Animin fully into your world, you will have to buy an Animin Pack which contains an Animin Dimension card. That will cost just £4.99, and will be the only Animin-related purchase you have to make (the Animin app is free). Buy your Animin Pack, enter the secret code that comes with it, and you will have full access to the world of Animin. You will be able to choose which Animin to play with (without an Animin pack, you can only play as T-Bo). But best of all, when you put your Animin Dimension card down on a flat surface, and point your phone or tablet at it, a portal will appear, and your Animin will jump right through and into the real world around you. Plus, you will be able to use your secret code to log into the You section of the Animin website, where you will be able to post pictures of you and your Animin, which could win you prizes. And the rest of the world will be able to see the fun you’ve been having with your Animin.
