What is it?

Sims Mobile is an EA mobile game based on a combination of Sims 4 and Sims FreePlay. It dropped on March 6th, 2018 –and the reviews are a mixed bag for sure. So I figured I’d toss mine into the mix.

 

 

Customization

Like most things, I have given up on creating character that look like me in MOST games, especially mobile. This is a “freemium” game, so I wasn’t too surprised that nothing resembled my natural hair, but I still found enough to work with to make a cool character that I enjoy. Plus as I move up, I get to see preview of the quality content awaiting me (I love a braided bun). Again, it’s a mobile game.

Now, the house customization? FIRE. They have way more options than I thought they would for a mobile game. Again, “freemium”, so if you want content quickly you’ll have to spend coin – but it seems worth it. Same thing by way of clothing. The packs seem a little pricy, but if you can earn enough Sim Cash…you’re golden.

Tasks

In Sims Mobile, your Sim has the opportunity to do a variety of tasks to level up. You’ll be able to complete work shifts, go on dates, attend parties, and all kinds of other predetermined stories. Now, I one thing I LOVE about this game is I can put my phone down or play as another character and my Sims will complete tasks on their own. This is truly an on-the-go game, and I am an on-the-go-girl. So if you’re looking for something to keep you engaged fully, I won’t hype this up to being it. But if you need you Sims fix on campus or at work, this is a pretty great option. You can help your Sim complete tasks faster, but it’s a lot of clicking and waiting, etc.

Interaction

I haven’t really participated much in connecting socially (I know, I know), but other people seem to really enjoy it. You have the option of giving strangers in the game stickers (cool, hot, etc.), and you get to dictate the types of relationship you build with them. I’m boring so my Sim is currently dating her housemate (also of my design —is this God complex?). My code is included in the pic if you want to add me though 🙂

Overall

Look, overall it’s a fun on-the-go game, and the old saying of “you get what you pay for!” rings true. It’s not a quick reward with this one, but I still find it pretty engaging. Recommendation: Shut the office door and live it up on your lunch break, or during the down time in between class, etc.
