Who hasn’t heard about The Sims before? As many of you know, The Sims is a strategic life simulation game, distributed by EA Games, a renowned video games developer and distributer known all over the world and responsible for so many games for both consoles and mobile devices.
The Sims, at the beginning, was created for PCs, and then the developers decided to extend it to other platforms afterwards, such as Play Station, Nintendo DS, Xbox, and mobile devices. That’s when they created The Sims FreePlay.
The Sims Freeplay features
If you’ve ever played The Sims on a computer and now you want to give it a try to the mobile version, you might find a few surprises; you’ll notice some variations from the original PC version, but The Sims FreePlay is still basically the same: a simulation game where you’ll create a character, a sim, and then take care of it and all the other sims you make. You can build houses and other buildings for them, find them jobs and send them to work, make them fall in love and raise a family, and many other things. But the way they’ll live their lives will change a bit.
The game variates a bit from the original conceptions stablished by the franchise: first of all, this is played in real-time. In-game time corresponds with real life time. Instead of being able to just speed up time, as you normally would in the PC version, you have to stick with the real time and wait for it to pass.
Secondly, you can visit different cities; your friend’s cities. Of course, for this, you have to login with your Facebook account, and then you’ll be able to visit the cities of those you are friends with on Facebook.
The Sims Freeplay Review and Conclusion
Also, as many other apps, even though you can download for free, it contains in-app purchases. It’s up to you, of course if you want to buy anything; simoleons (sim currency), Lifestyle points (with which you can complete actions faster and buy certain objects), Social Points, or beautiful, unique extra contents.
Then, you will be given “missions”. You will unlock new content by finishing them; but if you do it within a certain amount of time, you will get exclusive contents, some sort of prize. The game will be constantly upgraded to add more content.
You can download The Sim FreePlay from the App Store, Microsoft Store, or the Google Play, for free
