The Sims | Packs a Light Punch

The Sims has evolved from a classic PC game into multiple spin-offs boasting millions of players daily. It does the job of Sim interactivity well and also has a build mode in case you want to explore your more creative side. The money-boggling in-app purchases don’t make this a sweet experience though.

Gameplay

The Sims Mobile has players customize their Sims how they want to. You can select various physical and quality attributes at the start of the game and completely model your Sim. You can also change the appearance of your surroundings by purchasing or unlocking items. Your Sim interacts with other characters in the game, controlled by real-world players. There are pre-set tasks and events which you should accomplish to earn in-game currency and energy. These tasks are based on real-world time, therefore failure to accomplish them means losing precious energy and waiting too long to replenish, or the grim alternative of spending real dollars to make purchases.

As customary, Sims Mobile starts out with a tutorial to help you with the ropes, as you’re quickly introduced to your new town by Bella, an old acquaintance.

Visuals

The Sims Mobile port is visually at par with what many PC players may have been used to, and a pleasant surprise for newcomers. It has a glossy variety of Sim characters, lots of spaces that can be modelled, and a healthy burst of color. It does glitch on some Android models, but the game generally works. There’s plenty to do and explore, but it’s just so darn expensive that you’ll never get the opportunity to do much.

Controls

The Sims’ mobile adaptation performs quite well, and you can press, tap, swipe or make text inputs as you need to. Though initially, everything feels a bit clunky you soon get used to the riffraff of moving your fingers around every so often. The build mode is done well, maybe because everything comes in pre-set configurations and dimensions. This may also have to do more with the phone or OS version that you are using, because you may experience occasional lag.

Great

The Sims mobile version would be a decent game if it wasn’t such a massive rip-off. It takes from the legacy of its predecessors by making it taxing for players to proceed at a healthy pace. There are tons of microtransactions, and you’ll spend too much time trying to make it through events or completing tasks. At the end of the day, there’s better Sim games to play currently on mobile, and you won’t enjoy this particular experience if you’re not ready to pay up some real currency.
