Sul Sul Simmers, Last Friday we looked at the Create A Sim for The Sims Mobile. Today we will be reviewing the gameplay of The Sims Mobile.
First enter the Tutorial
The Tutorial will be the first thing you will see when you start your game. Its very quick and fun to play.
During the tutorial you can pick which room you want to rebuild first.
Don’t worry you can later build the other room but its extremely fun to get building in your game right away. As you can see I picked the bathroom.
After you have completed the room you will get a visit from Bella Goth to welcome you to the game. She will teach you on how to interact with other Sims around each Neighborhood.
Once you are finished with Bella the fun begins and you can start exploring the first neighborhood which is Parkside. Here you will unlock a brand new job for your Sims to try.
The world is split into five neighborhoods and each one brings new jobs for your Sims to try.
You will unlock more neighborhoods as you progress through the game. Each neighborhood brings new events and new game play to discover and try out too.
As you unlock more Neighborhoods more venues will unlock but they won’t be free, you will have to use Simoleons to unlock them.
Once you unlock the Cafe venue, the tutorial will teach you on how to get a job and start it.
The tutorial will explain promotions and job rewards to you.
Once you completed your Sims first shift the tutorial is over and you can start exploring the world by yourself. As you progress and unlock new game play, events and quests, you will get more tutorial’s on how to complete them.
Needs and Energy
Your Sims do not have needs but they do have energy in which you can refill by special cakes you earn from doing tasks and quests and events. You can also refill your Sims energy by doing household things like using the toilet, shower/bath or their bed.
Your sims loose energy by doing events such as work, building relationships, hobbies and neighborhood events.
As you can tell once you have used a household object to get energy you will have to wait to use it again. Your Sims energy will fully fill every one-two hours.
Tasks and Events
Tasks are very quick and are not timed, each task will cost between 1-2 energy and depending on which tasks you will pick the greater benefit it will have on completing the Event.
Events are timed and mostly last between one to four hours. You will need to fill the pink bar up to complete the quest and get more rewards. If you don’t complete the event in time don’t panic you will still get rewards but the further the pink bar goes the greater the reward you will get. Work/Relationships and Hobbies are all classed as events.
Rewards and Leveling Up
Each time you complete a work shift, hobby or relationship event you will unlock rewards that includes XP, Money, items and more. The higher you fill the bar the greater the rewards you will get.
Leveling Up is a great way to unlock more items for your Sims and if you hit certain levels you unlock more game play, neighborhoods, jobs and stories for your Sims to discover and try out.
Relationships work differently in The Sims Mobile since you tell their relationships through stories.
You can pick from a selection of stories you can tell from Friends to Romances to Romances to Break Ups, I promise you guys will love this feature, its really fun seeing all the different types of stories you can tell.
Traits are a fun addition to The Sims Mobile and the more you play with your Sims the more traits they will unlock.

Also note that you will only be able to pick one of your Sims traits from Create A Sim. You will be able to pick more through the game as you progress through the game.
Traits will be unlocked by Heirlooms that you unlock after you hit level 16and you unlock the Retiring interaction.
Aging, Playable Sims & Children
Your Sims can in fact have kids, you unlock this feature when you hit level 11-12. You will need a crib to be able to have a baby, If they are successful a baby will automatically appear and a pop up will come up telling you what sex your Sims child is has and from there you can give their new child a name and more.
Your Sims will age naturally as they perform actions, complete events and as they gain skills as you play your game.
You also have four playable Sims. You will need to pay for the slots through Simcash but once you have them unlocked you can make your Sims children, husband or wife playable or just make a new Sim. You can do this by either clicking “Promote” Or “Create“. If you pick your sims children they will age up and you will be automatically pulled into Create A Sim and once you are done they will be playable and no longer a NPC.
There are four life stages in The Sims Mobile. The life stages are Babies, Toddlers, Children, Young Adults, Adults and Elders.
Sadly teenagers are not included in The Sims Mobile since they will just age up to Young Adults if you make them playable.
Retirement & Heirloom’s
When you hit level 16 your Sims can retire which as I explained a little in the traits section, this interaction will unlock Heirloom’s that can unlock more traits but they will also unlock more career levels and hobbies for your Sims to try out.
When your sims retire they will not vanish from your sims lot they will remain but will be unplayable, making them a (NPC).
Parties are a fun little feature in which you can meet and interact with real people’s Sims. You unlock parties when you reach level 6. You will meet a new Sim called Leanne and she will show you how to throw parties, and attend parties. She will also show you how to do party tasks and earn party rewards by inviting you to her birthday party.
Parties will last for one day and during that time you will need to do party tasks and hitting the three stars to earn rewards. Parties also have levels so the higher the level you hit the more more rewards you earn. You earn level points by doing party tasks and also other players doing party tasks.
As you level up you will unlock quests to complete. Quests can arrange from expanding your lifestyle points to getting married and having a baby.
Quest are a great way to earn more Simoleons, Simcash and XP for your game.
Daily To Do List
Similar to quests they can help you earn rewards like Simoleons, Simcash, XP and more.
The Daily To Do list are very simple to complete. It will mostly ask you to complete 3 daily events, change your Sims outfit or hairstyle, improve your lifestyle points by buying furniture or clothing/hairstyles etc.
This concludes my review on The Sims Mobile, there is so much to discover in The Sims Mobile and and I can’t wait for all you guys to be able to play the game when it releases worldwide.
