The Sims Mobile is a life simulation game based on The Sims series, released on March 6, 2018 for Android and iOS. It was developed by Maxis (currently by Firemonkeys Studios) and published by Electronic Arts.
Why It Sucks
It is just a watered-down version of The Sims 4 but on a mobile device.
This game is filled with micro-transactions, in which it is heavily used for simcash, cupcakes used for refilling energy, clothing, etc.
You can only create two Sims for free, and the other two Sims are for Simcash. That's right, you have to pay money to create more than 2 Sims.
Limited Create A Sim options, due to many of the clothing having to be bought with virtual currency.
You cannot play as a Child Sim until it grows up to be an Adult.
Reuses music and sounds from The Sims 4, and voice clips from The Sims 3 & 4.
All the needs are replaced with Power, once they run out you must either wait a day, use your bed to recharge, or use a Cupcake.
The interactions all happen in real time, meaning you must wait for the sim to complete the interaction before doing a another one, unlike the original games having virtual time and you can speed it up.
This game requires a online connection to play. This is strange, since the other Sim games can be played offline.
Despite requiring a online connection, it plays just like a single player sims game. Just a few of the features are online only such as the parties.
The timed quests give you barely any time to complete the quest, meaning if you don't finish the quest in time. You have to restart the quest, losing all of your progress.
This game is not compatible with all Android (as long as they have Android 4.1 or later) devices, although it requires Android 4.1 or newer!
It can be a good way to start The Sims, since it's free to play.
You can host parties and go to other player's parties, making it online multiplayer.
Decent graphics for a mobile game, which looks almost exactly like The Sims 4.
Has new features, such as creating your own clothing with cool effects, and a baking contest.
It's better than The Sims Freeplay.
The jobs your Sims do, are interactive. And they can help speed up the job time.
