As players progress through the tricky levels and vibrant environments, they collect Flowers which can be used as in-game currency to buy items in the store. Players can buy customization items for Rakoo, including a range of outlandish headwear, and also unlock pets to accompany Rakoo on his journey. During gameplay, Rakoo’s pet can be called on to help defeat enemies when things get tough. The ability to revive Rakoo can also be bought in the store, letting players keep playing even when they die in-game. If players need a top up, packs of in-game currency Flowers can be purchased in the store.

In Rakoo’s Adventure , the charming but not very smart Rakoo is driven by his unrequited romantic desires to leave his cozy home in search of that special someone. A freshly picked flower, a goofy smile and off he goes! In his frantic and perilous pursuit of romance, Rakoo embarks on a fantastic adventure in a world that’s as wild and beautiful as it is dangerous. Players guide Rakoo through the perils and wonders that confront him with simple single-finger gameplay. Will Rakoo reach the Rakoonette of his dreams?  His fate is in your hands.
