EA Releases ‘The Sims 3′ for iPhone, iPod Touch

EA Play, the iPhone branch of Electronic Arts Inc. has released The Sims 3 for iPhone and iPod touch. The Sims 3 is a virtual reality game that lets you control simulated people, – aka ‘Sims’. Version 3 adds a pile of customizations, letting you create the most realistic people yet with several different personality traits.

The game consists of over 10 hours of gameplay in which you construct your character and explore the 3D world in which they live. You can chose from 12 different personas, including ones like the jack-of-all-trades or the maniac, including 17 different personality traits.

As in the computer game, your iPod touch Sims have wishes to dream of and goals to aspire to, from the lofty to the mundane, such as “use every toilet in the neighborhood.” Successful Sims receive rewards, while four mini-games — fishing, gardening, cooking, and house repairs — keep them busy between socializing.

You can get it for $9.99 in the App Store.
