I decided to show my iPad games some love this week, as it has been sorely neglected lately. I do have an older iPad, so some of the games and apps I downloaded no longer work on them or will not update any further. Many of them still work just fine, though- and it’s a good thing, because I am pretty stubborn and see no need to shell out money for a new iPad just yet! 😉
With that being said, I chose two games to focus on this week: The Sims FreePlay and Fish Frenzy Mania. I initially picked The Sims FreePlay, then decided to pick a secondary game since some actions in The Sims can literally take HOURS to complete.
I have had this game for quite some time, but never got very far with it. I had created characters based on myself, my husband, and my best friend. In the game, my best friend still had her maiden name as her last name, and she got married two years ago- has it really been that long since I played this game?!?
Anyway, I’m still trying to figure all the game mechanics out. Like I said, it differs from the other Sims games in the fact that each action actually takes up chunks of real time vs. Sims time. So, if you put your Sim to bed with the “deep sleep” action, for example, he or she will actually sleep for 7 to 8 hours! This makes The Sims FreePlay a great game to play for a few minutes at a time, then check back on it several hours later.
I attended first to Brandi, the Sim I created after myself. My Sim has a dog running around in her yard for whatever reason, which makes her very happy! It makes the real-life me happy too- I love dogs! 😉
After hanging out with the dog, I sent her off to work. She’s on her way to becoming a scientist!
Since Michael and Crissy do not have jobs, I set them with the task of growing crops. Hey, they have to make money for me somehow!
That’s it for The Sims FreePlay for right now. I’m really looking forward to seeing what happens next!
