The Sims Freeplay launched today on iOS

News iPad iPhone Simulation EA

The Sims Freeplay has officially launched, and EA Mobile sure do know how to launch a game. With a presentation from Iron Monkey studios, the developers behind the Sims iOS games, and some hands-on time with the app minutes after it was released they certainly wanted us to get a real feel for the game.

The Sims Freeplay is a game that is quite unlike any Sims release previous, on the iOS or otherwise. At first play it takes you through a lot of the new features you can come to expect from the game, and that’s a good thing. Even for me, a seasoned Sims player, I needed it because this is such a unique release.

The biggest differences are that instead of focusing on a family of Sims, your goal is to build up the town. You can have up to 16 Sims under your control, and you are in charge of growing your town’s value. The other big difference from other Sims releases is that it is done in real time.

With The Sims Freeplay there are plans to constantly update the app based on community feedback and in an effort to keep the game going for as long as possible. Considering the fact that the game itself is free, and is a very in-depth game that will take up big chunks of your day if you let it, this is a great offer for those who love the Sims, or just love some good value for money (or lack of money) apps.

The Sims Freeplay is available NOW on iPhone and iPad for FREE. Grab it HERE

BRB, playing games.


  1. Hmm,sounds… interesting, and since it’s free I’m willing to give it a try.
    I’m not sure how I’m going to like the “real time” aspect. I guess it depends on how it works, if it’s like games on facebook where it simply only lets you perform an action once every hour or whatever time frame it is.

    Guess I’ll find out soon enough though. 🙂

  2. If its like that then its a fail in my book, i hate those type of games that you have to wait a specific amount of time to perform an action.

  3. Yeah I hate games like that as well. I want to play when I want to play. I don’t want to feel like “Oh no I have to play in 4 hours from now or I will be wasting my chance”.  It’s annoying. That’s why I don’t play facebook games since they are mostly like that.

  4. Yes me too … I’ve only been tricked once with a facebook game, then it crashed i lost 2-3 days worth of work, and since then i stopped playing and have never looked back.
