The Sims Mobile game has been released worldwide! I downloaded the game and started playing right away.
Here are my thoughts about it.
It’s very charming. It kind of reminds me of The Sims Bustin’ Out and The Sims 2 for the PS2. You get to make a fairly customizable first Sim and then add a second one shortly after.
Jobs and housing are chosen for you. It can get either annoying for some players, or really convenient for others.
There’s an energy system where you spend energy to do actions. There’s no action queue like in the PC versions, and you can’t do different things at the same time. Once you hit your energy limit, you’ll have to wait for a few minutes for it to replenish. There are some things you could do to regain bits of energy, like, sleeping, taking a shower, or using the toilet.
Moods don’t exist in this game. That means you don’t have to worry about filling up your Sims’ motives. No more social or bladder bars!
They used music similar to those of the old PC versions of the games so there’s no doubt you’d feel right at home if you’re an old The Sims fan.
For the most part, I think it’s quite similar to The Sims Freeplay. It’s all just a glorified waiting game with cute graphics to distract you. There’s always the option to buy in-app purchases to speed things up, but why would you buy a virtual double bed for 700PHP?
Should you get this game? If you’re a The Sims fan, you’d enjoy this.
Is it something you can play for months? No, I don’t think so. It gets pretty boring after a while.
If you’re someone who enjoys idle/waiting games, then this might be a good one for you.
