In addition, there is the possibility of interacting with other real players by going to party.

As in The Sims FreePlay, also in The Sims Mobile there is a game coin, which you can earn by playing or buying with real money. Finally, to distinguish this version of the game is the particular attention placed in the story mode, focused and influenced by the actions of the Sims. Thanks to the progress made in the story, the Sims level up and unlock new movies, clothes, objects and furniture.
