It’s finally HERE! Not with a Bang, or a POP…. but more of a soft release for Australia.
You can now download “The Sims Mobile” to your smart phone and take the Sims 4 with you!
This pocket version of “The Sims” is the one I have always dreamed about.
It feels nostalgic, fun, and the details are amazing. It is superior, compared to “Free Play” and I am loving the format. As with previous Sims games on Mobile, this has a very simple interface. You start with a blank sim template and are moved into a starter home. As you are introduced to the format by a “tutorial”, you will start to unlock basic things such as a fridge, shower, career opportunities and different clothing, accessories… you name it! This is what has me hooked so far. I am an avid fan of collecting games… Animal Crossing, Pokemon, most RPG’s…. you name it! This has sold me and I will probably be playing this one every chance I get.
The coolest part, there are challenges! Meet a new sim? Challenge to make friends! New day at the office, Challenge to do your best! The more “Energy” you have means you can do more things, and succeed. This is where the “paying” comes in but of course the Energy slowly builds back over time. I have been playing this for a couple of days now and I have found the best way is to make your sim work, while you are at busy, then they will do their thing, while you do yours… Rinse and Repeat! Set them up for the next few hours, and off they go. It’s like a tamagotchi but The Sims!
There are Micro-transactions… after all, it’s not only an EA Game, but it is also a Mobile Game. Personally, I don’t mind spending a couple of dollars once I have deemed a game “good enough” for my hard earned Simoleons and of course, you can play the game without having to spend real money, and that’s how I plan to stay. (For now, at least!)
If you haven’t already; go and download it! It’s Free to start and it’s already on the App Store and Google Play Store in Australia. Let me know if you like it in the comments below. 🙂
