Advantages: Loads to do; keeps you occupied for ages.
Disadvantages: Really addictive!
I borrowed this game off a friend and I was very reluctant to give it back as it was such a good game!
~Packaging and Appearance~
On the front of the box is a picture of the Sims on a tropical island. The people pictured on the front are not in the game, but they are probably showing what you can make your Sim look like.
Your Sim was sailing on ship when there was a terrible storm and your Sim got thrown into the sea and washed onto an island! It's your job to explore the island to find tools, food and maybe a few other people so you can survive and thrive on the island before help comes.
Like every Sim game, you have to make a Sim at the beginning by choosing hair, skin tone, gender and clothes. You are then on a little section of the island and you will see a few palm fronds, sticks and a slice of melon. The game will tell you what to do when you first are on the island. It will tell you to eat the melon to filly yourself up, then build a little shelter with the palm fronds and a long pole. You will also need to light a fire to keep yourself warm. As you find fish, fruit and veg you will also be able to cook meals over the fire.
You can explore by tapping the place on the ground that you want your Sim to walk to. There are many different parts of the island and you can find people to talk to as well. You will have to do errands for them and then they will give you some much needed items in return. But you will also need to remember to keep an eye on your Sim's sanity and fill each bar up when it is low.
You can also play fun minigames whenever you want. You can fish, sqaush bugs, light your fire, paint pictures with the pigments from the sqaushed bigs and dye clothes, also with the pigments of the sqaushed bugs.
As with all games, the prcie depends on where you get it from, but from Amazon it's £14.99, which is very cheap.
Summary: One of the best Sim games ever!
