Navigation in the mobile version of the game is really simple. It is mostly taping on one of the options that appear or sliding to the left or right to change colors, for example. You will receive short notifications that offer you to tap on different objects which are crucial when you make your choice about the future. There is a map of Sims word and you can open it once you decide to look for a job or go somewhere else except your friendly neighborhood.
Graphics look great and typically very Sims-like. If you are a fan of these good looking characters you may play with, this game will not disappoint you. You’ll have this 3D character, an empty small house you can decorate up to your choice and sunny background with eternal spring or summer.
After a small but really creative intro with a family tree and you as an acorn flying to start your own tree, your story begins. The game offers you to create your Sim, with multiple options. It is similar to the one you used to play on PC. Change your hairstyle, face, torso, legs. Pick the best outfit and rush to your new place.
