The Sims FreePlay iOS and Android app is among the world’s leading life simulation games, and it offers you a chance to create your own getaway to the tropics and also unlock a beach bungalow where your Sims can stay. Here’s the full review of the application.
The basics and intriguing gameplay
The App Store and Google Play app for Sims has the best graphics and sounds. I find the 3D graphics of the game to be mind-blowingly intriguing and amazing. One important trait of the graphics is that it has incredible clarity regardless of the size. I believe that anyone who has played the original Sims game will find the special effects to be very familiar.
The Sims FreePlay uses many ways to hearken the early day. First, it is more similar to the original game than any of the popular mobile titles, and it plays in real-time. This means that if you take the time and send a Sims off to take a shower, you could be actually doing it yourself. However, there are two setbacks of the gameplay. First, the game takes prohibitive time to complete any tasks especially when players are on the go. Additionally, the mobile phone screen is just too small to handle some things.
Making the game true to life
By adjusting the game settings to real-time, you’re free to, well, fail to play on occasion. Such Freemium titles work on timers which have to be on the move even while you’re not available. Since the game involves micromanaging the lives of your Sims, if you step out for extended periods even just to have your lunch on a 20 minute day, you will have starved all your Sims away to nothing. To avoid such occurrences, you can always pop in to babysit them even once or twice each day for as many times as you like.
Moreover, if you need the Sims to take on any gainful employment opportunity, you’ll be required to make more regular stops. Remember that even the jobs are also functioning in real-time, so if you’re not available to play around at eight in the morning, you will need to avoid certain jobs. The awkward part is that the Sims don’t really care, they lack interest, skills, or desires. Therefore, one job is as good as the previous one for them.
The game controls are located towards the edges, making it ideal for these game genres. This way, you can be able to navigate and use the While there’s usually a lot taking place on the mobile device screen throughout the game, you’ll still find it easy to control and navigate. Despite being numerous, the controls and icons are simple and straightforward. This makes them convenient and ideal for this game genre. I learned to overcome the few button glitches easily by exiting and then re-entering the menu.
Do I want to replay the game?
The Sims FreePlay is known to be an addictive game to the point where you may find yourself obsessed with the game. One feature that adds to the game’s replay value is the fact that you aren’t restricted to a particular Sim. You can opt for switching to other player-created characters and households to ensure that you have something to do almost always. The game also offers a steady flow of objectives which keeps the game structured while earning you the much-required experience points that open up additional possibilities inevitably.
Sims FreePlay is free to download but it offers in-app purchases, but you can easily disable the feature through the settings of your device. Notably, these in-app purchases have been an excellent put-off for most fans. In fact, there’s nothing worthwhile that you can do without having to acquire the in-app purchases. Some users prefer purchasing an app once they get the additional enhancements by simply updating to the latest version.
The Sims Freeplay has variety and a lot of fun to offer players that you won’t even notice the old-timers that underpin the works. I would recommend the game as a must-have for any Sims fan. Notably, the application has always functioned perfectly well on Google Android devices, iPad, and iPhones and has never crashed. With the latest version of the app, you can expect nothing short of an exciting gaming experience.
