THE SIMS MOBILE

- go.macworld.com/tsm

Speaking of huge games making their way to iphone and ipad: The Sims is one of the most popular series of all time, and now The Sims Mobile has arrived to take the place of the years-old Sims Freeplay. The Sims Mobile is another free-to-play take on the beloved life simulation, but it’s closer to The Sims 4 on MAC/PC in approach and style. As ever, you’ll customize and take control of little humans as they take on jobs, build up their homes, and embark on friendship­s and relationsh­ips. You’ll find some freemium timers in the mix, but you can also manually complete tasks to speed them along. We went hands-on before launch and found The Sims Mobile to be an effective rendition of the classic series, at least in the early hours—longer-term play could prove grindy.
