Mii Meets the Sims
Cute 3D animation, bright colors, and relaxing gameplay are what make up Idle Life Sim. This adorable point and click adventure, developed by Codigames, brings you through a simulation of your life. You start out by making your character and picking the career of your choice. Your virtual Grandma tells you it’s your time to start your new life. “Tell me: what do you want to do?” she says, as career choices appear on the screen; artist, technology, sports, and gastronomy. Then you are thrust into your little world where the main objective is to build up your simulator life-style.
The gameplay is basically what you’d expect from any life simulator. The initial starting point gives you the very basics of what you need to live. A one-bedroom shack set in a neighborhood that looks like you’d get robbed in, and an old, crusty bed. As you progress, you earn money, get promotions in your field, and eventually upgrade out of the trashcan you were dropped in.
Second, Second life
There are a variety of furnishings and cosmetics to customize your life to your liking. Hairstyles, colors, clothing, and even tattoos are all available at your fingertips. You can go back and customize your character at any point in time during your gameplay process. For housing items, you make your way to the furniture store and buy whatever you like, either with in-game cash or gems. Idle Life Sim has everything from couches, beds, and tables all the way to entire gaming setups and piles of literal trash. The store is set on a five-minute timer and switches out items randomly.
Idle Life Sim has a leveling system that allows you to get promotions and upgrade the size of your house. Invest money into your career to enhance your skills and status and set furniture down in your home to level up. At level four, eight, and twelve, you can improve the size of your house, going from shabby shack to massive mansion! However, the most unique aspect of the game is when you achieve level twelve. At level twelve, you can actually start an entirely new life. A new character, new career, new home, but nothing from your first life is erased. It’s a second life to your second life to detach you from reality even further.
Grandma is a Stalker
At first, Idle Life Sim’s pacing is slow. Your income is low, you can’t afford anything, and it puts a bit of a damper on the initial draw in. But wait! Grandma came to the rescue with extra money, but only if you watch this 30-second ad! I will never get the sound of her “Yoo-hoo!” out of my head as she sits on a bench outside your house. I typically don’t mind free games adding in ads for revenue. But this was so frequent, and the start was so slow that watching ads basically became a necessity. You could drop a whopping 10.99$ for every perk available, but that seemed like too much for an idle game.
Overall Idle Life Sim is a good mobile game. Aside from grandma continually showing up and tempting me to watch an ad for 2,000 dollars, the gameplay was engaging and entertaining. The visual design was adorable, and there is a fair amount of content to keep you playing for a while. Not to mention watching my mini-me slam her fist on the broken TV I bought her always made me giggle
