In the latest incarnation of the life simulation series from EA and Maxis, The Sims Mobile brings all the fun and frolic of creating avatars of people we know and love (or hate) and manipulating their lives to play out as we want. The game boasts more detail, features and functionality than we’ve previously seen in a Sims game on mobile platforms and is set to give players an experience similar to that of other recent titles in the series that have been only available on PC and consoles
The game offers a huge range of opportunities and freedom to develop and customise the lives of your characters. from their physical features, style and personalities to their homes and furnishing. The in-game mode will have you developing your Sim’s various interests, vocations, and relationships with other players.
The game implements the use of a ‘sticker system’ where players can let other Sims know what they think of them, as well as a high-risk high-reward system where players may be rewarded when certain actions are taken such as attempting to kiss another sim or trying a new recipe.
Creative Director of The Sims Mobile, Brandon Gill, has stated: “Creating unique, completely customised Sims, building a dream home, and exploring exciting careers have always been tentpoles of The Sims franchise. With The Sims Mobile, we’re able to bring players those time-loved features with new, highly detailed customisation options in Create-A-Sim and Build Mode… “
On top of the customisable Sims and home designs that have been mainstays of the series, the game also allows players to connect with their friends and allow their Sims to interact with each other thus promising an interesting playout of virtual events.
The Sims Mobile is currently available now for iOS and Android platforms.
