What is The Sims™ Mobile?

The Sims Mobile is a simulation game that allows players to assume the role of an avatar and live their life.

 

Rated for players 12 years of age and older, The Sims Mobile is free to download and play but does feature in-app purchases and advertisements. It can be found in both the App Store and the Google Play Store.

 

The Sims Mobile is the perfect way for players to escape reality for a bit by playing a life simulation game with an avatar. There are both positives and negatives to The Sims Mobile app.

 

Players begin by creating a custom avatar with choices of face shape, eyes, nose, hair and body. One particular user complaint is that The Sims Mobile presents a plethora of options to customize the physical aspects of a player’s avatar but does not provide a lot of clothing options.

 

After creating their avatar players are then dropped into The Sims Mobile world and begin with a small house. The house is a “fixer-upper” and players are first tasked with cleaning the house and outfitting it with basic furniture, after which players are rewarded by leveling up.

 

Players opting to play without making purchases will need to have patience, as it takes time to progress through the game by leveling up and having adequate energy stores.

 

Energy bars are the key to playing The Sims Mobile and will likely make or break a player’s involvement with the game. Avatars in The Sims Mobile require energy to complete tasks in their virtual world and energy can run out quickly here.

 

Players have the option of purchasing energy to continue gameplay or waiting out the clock for energy levels to be replenished. Those playing for free should be prepared to be popping in and out of The Sims Mobile throughout the day, as they try to complete tasks and level up when energy levels are replenished.

 

This can also be an excellent source of frustration as playing for free causes players to take a long time to level up and unlock more exciting aspects of the game as well as having to wait out a clock to be able to play again.

Is The Sims™ Mobile safe for my kids?

The Sims Mobile is free to download and play, which is great, but players will eventually find it difficult to progress in the virtual world without spending money on in-app purchases. In this sense, The Sims Mobile app is free to start but advances into a pay-to-play model. 

In-app purchases typically come in the form of SimCash, the app currency, and range in cost from $4.99 to $29.99.

Parents allowing children to make purchases should discuss spending expectations prior to allowing their child to download and play the game.

In all, The Sims Mobile can be an excellent introductory foray into simulation games, but the pay to play model can frustrate even the most patient of players.

And while players may encounter other real-life players in the game, denoted with a blue diamond over their avatar head, actual interactions are limited.
