Pocket Love is the latest relaxing game from Hyperbeard, creators of My Dear Farm, Adorable Home, Kuma Sushi Bar, and Tsuki’s Odyssey. The game’s all about decorating a pocket-sized home with beautiful furniture and interiors. The hand-drawn graphics are cute and will appeal to fans of minimalist games. 

Pocket Love provides plenty of customization options that allow players to turn an empty house into a dream home. They can also expand their small house by adding multiple rooms.

Once a player moves to his/her new home along with their partner and pet, they can start purchasing furniture from the in-game “Amazing” store. Players can also shop for new clothes and accessories, sell old furniture to Kevin and obtain free items from the animated package lying on the street. Pocket Love also lets you enter secret passwords to obtain cool rewards!

When you are away, the game captures a random pic using the camera, which can be seen once you are back playing the game. You can access these pics from the menu on the upper-left corner of the screen. Tap on the camera icon after tapping the hamburger menu to open the “Memories” album.

The game doesn’t stop at decorating your dream home. It also lets you interact with characters and read their funny conversations. Our Pocket Love guide will be very useful to those who have just started playing.

Getting Started

Pocket Love is for all ages. But you will have to enter your age before you begin playing. Move the slider to select your age and press the OK button.

Next, choose the hairstyle, skin and hair color for you and your partner. You can change your looks and style anytime while playing. When you are in the game, tap on “edit character” (person and pencil icon) on the lower-left corner of the screen to change. This is where you can also get access to the clothing store, where you can purchase new clothes and hats using dogllars, an in-game currency.

To enter your name, tap on “You” on the bottom of the screen. Type in your name and press the OK button.

Once you choose your looks, the next step is to select your partner’s looks and style. Follow the same steps to select your partner’s hairstyle on the left section and skin/hair color on the right.

Tap on “Partner” on the bottom of the screen and enter your virtual partner’s name.

Now that you have customized both characters, let’s play! Oh wait! There’s a fluffy surprise waiting for you. Pocket Love also lets you adopt a pet. 

In the next screen, you will have to choose a kitty or a pup. After selecting one, tap “Pet” on the bottom of the screen to give her a name and you are all set!

In your cozy little home, you will be unpacking new furniture items with your partner. Tap on the crates to place a succulent plant, a puff and a set of drawers.

When you unpack these items, you will receive hearts, which will fill the heart meter. More on hearts later.

To move these items, tap the edit furniture button on the lower-right corner of the screen. In the edit mode, press, hold and drag an item to move and place it anywhere in the room. However, in the tutorial, you will have to place those three items on specific areas in the room. Of course, you can change their positions once the tutorial ends.

Now that you have moved into your new home, you can buy furniture and decorate your new room.

To purchase new furniture, tap on the “Amazing” shopping button on the lower-right corner of the screen.

Amazing (inspired by Amazon?) is an in-game shopping website that lets you shop for furniture, clothes, accessories and room décor. You will need coins to purchase items.

Items on display at Amazing’s shopping window change every few hours. Certain premium items can be purchased using “Dogllars”.

Both coins and dogllars are in-game currency, though the latter is not easy to get for free in this game.

Now that you know how to play Pocket Love, check out these tips and tricks to build your new home and brag about your interior décor skills.

How to Obtain Dogllars

There are two currencies in this game – coins and dogllar. The latter is used to purchase clothing, some premium furniture items, furniture sets, themed décor and most importantly, a new room.

While it’s easy to earn coins, it’s tough to obtain dogllars in Pocket Love. Follow these tips to get them for free:

The Package

Claim a random gift from the animated package lying outside your house. There will be a cute smiley callout above the package, suggesting that it’s ready to be opened.

Tap the package kept outside.

The package has a cooldown time, which can range from a few minutes to a few hours. The more number of times you open it, the higher will be the cooldown time. During the cooldown time, you won’t be able to open it.

Get the random furniture item from the animated package by tapping on the “Place” button. You will receive 1 dogllar as extra rewards.

Get’em from Kai

Kai appears at your doorstep at regular intervals. Tap him, watch a 30-second advert and get your rewards. You will obtain dogllars from him occasionally.

Kai the salesman

Complete Tasks

Tap the to-do list on the lower-left corner of the screen.

Finish tasks to get a special reward

Complete all three tasks shown in the to-do list to get a special reward displayed at the bottom of the To-Do list. Claim it to obtain up to 5 or more dogllars.

Daily Reward

Get dogllars on certain days as part of the “Daily Reward” campaign. Play the game daily for seven consecutive days and you will receive 5 dogllars on day 1 and 7 on day 6. Pay attention to special packages on day 3 and day 7 as they may contain dogllars.

The currency page.

Don’t Miss Free Offers

In the same currency screen (screenshot above), there’s a cute cat holding a banner “Get Free Dogllars!” Tap on her and complete an offer. Offers range from installing a particular third-party app, downloading a game and reaching a certain level in that game and many more offers. These are usually third-party offers. As soon as you complete these offers through the app, dogllars will be credited to the total amount.

The currency page also lets you watch an ad to obtain 5 dogllars. The ad option can be found on the bottom-right corner of the page.

Add More Space to Your Home ASAP

With just one room to begin with, having so many furniture items crammed into that small cubbyhole won’t look too appealing, especially if you are fond of a minimalist living room design.

Well, it’s time to add more space to your home. The best way to do this is to purchase a new room. Tap on the red home signboard located outside your house and press the “Buy” button to increase space. You will need 10 dogllars to buy your first new room expansion.

Buy new room

You can earn a quick 10 bucks for our new room if you follow these steps:

  1. After the tutorial ends, you will get 5 dogllars as part of “Daily Reward”. The Daily Reward section will appear on the screen. Just tap claim to receive 5 dogllars.

2a. Tap the “+” button next to the total dogllar amount (in green) on the upper-right corner of the screen.

2b. Tap the “Ad” button below the 5 dogllar amount on the bottom-right corner as shown in the screenshot below. Watch a 30-second advert to receive 5 more dogllars.

Now that you have 10 bucks, tap the home signboard (next to you house) again and press the “Buy” button to purchase a new room.

How to Move Furniture from One Room to Another

Once you buy a new room, it’s time to move some furniture to the empty room.

In Pocket Love, moving furniture from one room to the next room isn’t as easy as it seems. Follow this step-by-step guide:

Tap on the room where the furniture item is placed.

Tap the edit button on the lower-right corner of the screen. The edit button has a couch/coffee table icon and is located just above the “Amazing” shopping button.

You will enter a room edit mode with the furniture section displayed on the left side of the screen.

Move furniture to new room

Next, tap on an item placed on the room. There will be a downward pointing yellow arrow above that item, suggesting that the item can be moved or stored. Now tap on the storage box icon just above the green “OK” button on the lower-right corner of the screen to store that item.  

Each item is stored based on its category. So if you have stored a carpet, it will be found in the carpet section on the furniture section on the left side of the screen.

Press the “OK” button.

Next, tap on the new room where you want to move furniture.

Tap the room edit button again. You will see the item stored on the left side of the screen under “Furniture”.

Drag and drop the item to the empty room. You can place that item anywhere, but pay attention to the square below that item. If it’s blue, it means you can place it. Red means there’s some obstacle or that area is too crammed to be placed upon. Press the OK button to close the edit mode.

Go for Instant Refreshes to Avoid Long Wait Times

Refreshing to get a fresh new set of tasks and products takes time, unless you go for Instant resets. Here’s how to do this:

Instant Refresh Products

In Pocket Love, resetting/refreshing allows you to update the current (furniture and clothing section) lists with new products.

Tap the store icon on the lower-right corner of the screen to access Amazing’s furniture and clothing section.

The reset button is displayed on the upper-left corner of the product page, just beside the total time. You can wait until the timer reaches 0 to refresh the current product list or go for instant resets.

Tap on the reset button (blue timer icon) and press the “reset now” button. You will have to watch a 30-second advert to reset instantly. This way you will get a fresh new list of products (furniture or clothing) in the Amazing page.

Refresh product page

Instant Refresh Tasks

Once you finish a set of three tasks, you don’t have to wait longer as instant resets are also available in the task page.

  • Tap the To-do list on the lower-left corner of the screen to access a list of tasks.
  • In the “New Tasks” button, under “To Do”, tap the clock/timer icon and press the “Reset Now” button to watch a 30-second video advert. A new list of tasks will appear soon after you finish watching the video.
Refresh task page

Things to Buy from Amazing

Furniture is not the only thing to purchase from Amazing, the in-game shopping/ecommerce website. You can also purchase clothes, accessories and room interiors, such as carpet, flooring etc.

Tap the Amazing shopping button on the lower-right corner of the screen.

Open Amazing to check out these products:

Products are categorized into tabs on the top of the Amazing page:

Clothing (pink shopping bag tab): Tap on the pink shopping bag tab to access clothing and accessories. You can purchase them using dogllars. You can also obtain a random vanity item by watching a 30-second advert. Tap on the purple ad button below the swirling pink shopping bag item to obtain a random costume or accessory.

Furniture (shopping cart tab): You can purchase top class furniture and room décor. Most of the items can be purchased using coins, but you can buy some of them using dogllars.

Don’t forget to claim your free “special furniture item”. Tap on the “Ad” button below the special item to watch a 30-second video and get it for free.

Wallpaper (checkered mat): You can purchase cool wallpapers to adorn your home. A single wallpaper costs a lot of coins, so make sure you have accumulated enough coins to purchase one.

Additionally, you can also purchase “Pocket Surprise” (pink box icon) – themed furniture and décor sets that can be purchased only using dogllars.

How to Earn Heart Tokens

In Pocket Love, you can earn heart tokens every time you place new furniture in your home. Whether they are purchased or obtained for free, you will get hearts when you place them.

Tap the jumping package outside your home to claim a randomly generated reward. You will also receive hearts once you claim it, along with dogllars.

Purchase furniture from Amazing and place them to obtain heart tokens. Don’t forget to claim your free special furniture item reward. You will have to watch an ad to obtain a random item. You will receive hearts once you claim it. 

Some daily rewards provide gift boxes, which may contain a random furniture item or clothing. If you obtain a furniture item from a daily reward gift box, you will also obtain heart tokens.

Heart tokens obtained from purchased or free furniture fill the heart gauge on the upper-left corner of the screen. When the heart gauge is full, you will reach a new level.

Heart level

Tap the heart gauge to know a list of soon-to-be unlocked items when you reach a particular level.

Clean the Streets to Obtain Bonus Coins

You will find insects, flies, rats and litter scattered across the street. Tap to get rid of them and earn coins as rewards. Drag your finger over the screen to find litter and insects.

Don’t Ignore Extra Rewards

When you tap the jumping package lying outside the street, you will obtain a free item. Hold on! Before tapping the “Place” button, pay attention to the purple “Extra Reward” button. Press that button, watch an ad and obtain an extra furniture item.

Tap extra reward button

Obtaining an extra item also lets you earn extra heart tokens.

Before selling an item, make sure you have stored it in the storage box:

  1. There is a pink heart above my partners head and when I tap it it completely takes me out of the game.whag does it mean and what do I do?

  2. H! can I get more then 2 pets? I live cats so I choose 2 cats but I really want a dog! Does the sweet person come back or? Please let me know 🙂 love the game btw

    1. @Max, yes you can get more pets. I am also playing pocket love and the sweet person is Jess and she doesn’t coms very often. I have 3 cats and I also want a dog. Tbh I think we should just wait and see. There’s also a contacts button in the settings to whatever and you can see the days Jess comes. I hope this helps.

  3. My second pet which is my dog that I adopted is nowhere to be found in the house. Is there something or somewhere I can do about it? Please help!

    1. You should navigate between different rooms in edit mode (couch table icon on the lower-right corner of the screen) and you may find your missing pet in one of the rooms. To navigate, press the arrow button on the home icon on the upper-right corner of the screen.

    2. @Anurag Ghosh, do you know how I can buy hair from the store? I have the dogllars but whenever I tap buy on a hairstyle it doesn’t buy it it just goes off of it.

      1. Yes, this happened to me as well. Couldn’t buy a new hairstyle from the clothing store. I guess this is some kind of a glitch?

    1. Have you tried navigating between different rooms through the home icon button on the top-right corner of the screen? This home button appears in edit mode (couch and table icon on the lower-right corner of the screen). Open edit mode and then navigate between rooms.

  4. @All

    Guys check out @Zurii’s comment on this post if you want to know how to obtain a new pet in Pocket Love. According to Zurii, a lady will appear outside the house. Click her to choose another pet.

    1. If you click on the box in the top-left corner, the third icon down (the contact book, above the settings icon) tells you what day of the week the sellers come on.

      Jess, the pet person, has ??? under the name. I think that means Jess appears randomly.

  5. I just got to level 4, and it says I unlocked new items in the store, but I can’t find any of the stuff in the store. What can I do?

    1. @j, The items on display in amazing is a mix between newly unlocked items and items you’ve unlocked before. You have to wait for the shop to reset or instant refresh the shop to see the newer items.

  6. I’ve already done my 4 rooms
    What are the garden decorations that are shown in the amazing store for? Is there a garden part of the game where I can decorate my garden after my house
    (Since I’m done with my house)

    1. The garden decorations displayed on the Amazing store can be placed inside the house right now. Maybe developers are planning for a garden expansion in the next update, but for now all garden décor can only be placed inside the house.

    1. The truck appears near the lamppost at random occasions. Close and open the app again and you might see it there.

    2. @Marina, it has a schedule some days. To check it go to the top left corner and tap the button then go to the to the icon under the camera and check the person who is the truck guy

    1. @Anurag Ghosh, I still can’t find my pet even after I closed and reopened it and checked all the rooms what do l do

    1. @Anurag Ghosh, Thank you! I found white hair though, and… Blue and turquoise, I believe. There’s an NPC called Ace that has unique hair colors, dunno if they’re new or not.

    1. Not yet. Maybe in the next update? We will have to wait for the next announcement from developers Hyperbeard, the creators of Pocket Love game.

    1. Could be a bug. Close and open the app again. Try this: If you have more than one/two rooms, then tap on each room to find your pet.

    1. It’s random. I hope that in future updates, the game will allow players to feed the pet or provide some toys to make her happy.

    1. You can’t save your progress in this game. Once the app is deleted all your progress will be lost.

      Tap on the hamburger menu (three horizontal lines) on the upper-left corner of the screen and then tap on settings (cog icon). In the settings page, it says “This game does not support cloud save. Deleting the app will lose all your progress”

  7. I just started the game. So I’m on level two with very minimal furniture and the smallest room. The first task I have says to say hi to my pet. I have the brown dog and can’t find it anywhere? I have the pet bed placed and everything, but no dog. How do I do this task?

    1. This could be a glitch, which may be resolved in the next update. Try this: Close and open the app and you might find the dog. Also, you just have to tap the pet, wherever she is, to complete the task. Doesn’t matter if she is on the pet bed or outside.

      PS: I am not the developer. In case the disappearing glitch still appears, please contact developers Hyperbeard – hola@hyperbeard.com or help@hyperbeard.com

    1. I think you may be able to add more pets in the future, once when the game is updated. For now, it’s only 1 pet. I guess the game is still in beta, so future updates might have something bigger and better for us. You can view/change name of your pet by tapping on the character edit button on the lower-left corner of the screen. Once you are in the character edit page, tap the paw button to view your pet and change her name.

      Increase the heart level and see if you can add a new pet when you reach a certain heart level. Your current heart level is displayed on the upper-left corner of the screen.

    2. @Anurag Ghosh, I have 2 pets what do you mean you can only have 1 pet? I found this lady outside and clicked her then she gave me an option to choose a pet?

      1. @Zurii, That’s because the game was updated in March 15, 2022 latest. I have noticed certain changes in the latest update, such as another free way to get free coins/dogllars. The lady that gives a new pet could be one of the latest features.

        When I wrote this comment in Feb 2022, there wasn’t a way to have another pet or at least I couldn’t find any lady outside my house. I am glad this new update lets players have more than one pet. Thanks for the tip!

  8. How to add a 5th room as after having 4 rooms, I am unable to see an option to add a 5th room. Are only 4 rooms allowed?

    1. I guess only 4 rooms are allowed until now. They may let players add a 5th room in the near future, maybe in the next update. But for now, you can have a maximum of 4 rooms.

      Increase the heart level and see if you can add a fifth room when you reach a certain heart level. Your current heart level is displayed on the upper-left corner of the screen.

  9. Heyy! Is there any way I can get the selling truck fast, or is it random, because I have many things that I don’t want!! 🙁

    1. I think it’s random. Close the app and open it again and you may find the truck again. Also, make sure you sell multiple items to the buyer.

  10. This game is absolutely adorable, I downloaded it yesterday and I am already a little bit obsessed.
    I only have one issue: it doesn’t let me pet the cat?
    The first day one of the daily missions was “say hello to your pet” and i really couldn’t.
    Not tapping the cat on screen nor looking around in the menu. Am I missing something? How do I interact with it? It looks all sad now

    1. Just tap the cat to complete the task. The kitty will be on the cat bed. When you tap the cat, a dialogue will appear above her. Immediately, you will notice the mission completion screen appearing on the top of the screen. Tap “claim reward” to get your rewards.
