Quoted from SimsVIP
The Sims is Mobile is confirmed to be a Free-to-Play game, which means you can play the game for free, but be ready for micro-transactions if you want to advance quickly or unlock new features. Free-to-Play games also force players to have to play in real time, which means you have to wait minutes, and sometimes hours, to complete certain actions.

Then I am glad I'm not interested. There's too much on my phone as it is.

Regarding the video posted above. I really appreciate Alexis (SimsVIP) being honest in her review of the mobile game. You can tell she is trying to be upbeat and positive. But you can also hear her lack of enthusiasm and she admits she is none too thrilled. In stark contrast were several YouTube presentations that acted like sliced bread could not be better.
This mobile version appears to offer interactive online play. Sims online anyone? It is also in real time meaning if your Sim sleeps for 6 hours there is nothing to do for those 6 REAL TIME hours.
Do the pluses outweigh the minuses? I say count me out ...

From a Freeplay players perspective, this game is just that. Another version of freeplay with some differences.
1. It appears to be based off of Sims 4 (from CAS to objects to clothing) where as Freeplay has objects, CAS and clothing that are different than the PC games across Sims 2 and 3.
2. In Sims Mobile you start off in a home they (the dev's) made, as far as from what I have seen by watching the video's, where as in Freeplay you get to pick a piece of land and build your own home. I still have the very first home I ever built in Freeplay, albeit that it has changed over the years that I have owned the game.
3. From what I can tell, you can earn cash for those microtransactions by completing goals easier than it is to earn cash in Freeplay.
4. The simoleons earned in SM appears to be more than in Freeplay, however I'm not sure about collecting any simoleons from any business type buildings in the game like as in Freeplay.

The are similarities that I can see for both Freeplay and SM is that they are both real time played games and they are both boring as crap. It takes a sim in Freeplay 10 minutes to eat! Unless you choose for them to snack which takes 6 sec's.  Most of the time, even with the opening of careers in Freeplay (Police station, Movie Studio and hospital, where I can either go with my sim to complete daily work related objectives, send them off on their own or to work offsite) I send my sims off to work or school or attending to their lifetime aspiration (horse activities, entertainment, fishing, etc) and then exit the game. Which leads me to the similarity that there are goals/quests in SM just like in Freeplay. It would also appear that the internet is required in both of these mobile games in order to even load up the game to play.

But like I said in response to a post you made @EuphorialQueen, I just may as well stamp "SUCKER" to my forehead because curiosity will get the best of me and I will just have to download it and scope it out to see what it is really all about.

Build Your Sims Legacy On The Go With The Sims Mobile, Coming Soon!
Posted on The Sims Blog May 10, 2017 by SimGuru SarahJen
Quoted from the blog:

Electronic Arts and Maxis are super excited to announce that we are soft launching a brand-new mobile game we've been working on, The Sims™ Mobile! It is currently soft launching in Brazil exclusively, as we begin testing our game mechanics to prep for our global launch.
We have spent a long time working to make The Sims Mobile a game that you will absolutely love. We have also made sure to include many of your favorite features from The Sims and The Sims FreePlay, ranging from the ability to create incredible Sims and make whoever you want, and the tools needed to create and decorate an amazing house and many awesome venues, to the ability to experience wonderful relationships, and travel to different neighborhoods to actively engage in a variety of awesome careers and fulfilling hobbies.
While The Sims FreePlay has produced an amazing 5 years of content, and will continue to do so alongside The Sims Mobile for Simmers everywhere to enjoy, The Sims Mobile is a fun addition to the The Sims family where you can let your creativity run wild by crafting your story, building your legacy, and ultimately, playing with life!
Create Amazing Sims
Being able to create a very customized and unique Sim is core to every The Sims experience. In The Sims Mobile, we’ve worked hard to deliver a high quality Create-A-Sim that our Simmers will love! From the width of the nose to the arch of a brow, every detail can be customized. And don't forget to outfit your Sims with sleek styles, cool hair, and trendy accessories. Finally, top off their look with glamorous makeup to create your dream Sim.
Build A Fantastic Home
In The Sims Mobile, your home is your base. It is where you collect and show off your heirlooms, career rewards, and personal impeccable style choices. Build the home of your Sim's dreams by shaping the rooms, placing windows and doors, and experimenting with color and light. Play with shades of paint, wallpaper, or exposed brick to create an environment in which your Sims will flourish. Finish it off with some expertly placed furnishings and decor and BAM, you've got a house that will be the envy of all your neighbors!
Shape Your Sims' Legacy
Building on the great foundation of The Sims, The Sims Mobile focused on a number of key innovations; the first is your Sims' legacy. This is an idea we got from you, our wonderful Simmers! The Sims Mobile is a generational game; your Sims have life goals to achieve, and the more they complete during their lifetimes the better the quality of the heirloom they will leave behind when they retire. Heirlooms open up a world of possibilities for future generations of Sims - like new careers, new hobbies, excellent perks for both you and your Sims, and many other super fun opportunities.
Play Together
Another key innovation is playing with friends – the ability to share and add to the experience of creating a legacy with people who love The Sims as much as you do. Parties are an important part of the game and you can choose to attend parties with your real life friends! You can even develop relationships with other people’s Sims and have them eventually move in and live with your Sim. The type of relationship remains private so you can tell whatever story you like, what is shared is the relationship progress – so a friend might be telling a love story with your Sim, but you may be telling the story that our Sims are enemies. There is so much fun to be had at parties!
We are so excited to be able to finally get this into players’ hands! As we mentioned, we are starting with Brazil, but will be coming soon to many other places around the world. Check out www.thesims.com/mobile to be kept up-to-date and learn more about The Sims Mobile.
Be sure to let us know what you think in our The Sims Mobile forum! We can’t wait to hear from all of you.

Happy Simming!

Thank you BigHug
I am hoping to continue to gain more information. The screen on my phone is way to small to even consider this mobile version. At one point I very briefly had the social version. It ate away my battery and did not hold my interest so it was uninstalled.

I started playing SF on my phone but had moved it over to my tablet once I got one. It makes it much easier to play but it still gets very boring after a while. The one thing that has turned me off from playing SF are the challenges, even ones that aren't community ones. The time limits are just insanely impossible unless you are one of those players who sits with their face glued to the game or choose to throw cash at EA to buy game cash to quickly complete them. Neither of which am I. I don't have all the time in the world to just sit idle and play the game nor am I a bank, although I do wish I was a bank or had a money tree growing in my backyard or that we had motherlode! Laughing I view my SF game as a more leisure game, meaning I play it whenever I feel like it. I'm hoping that because this is a multi-player game it isn't similar to what is in SF and I don't have to worry about playing everyday and that you don't have to play it with friends. My facebook page is not open to the world, it is about as private as one can get without having one, if someone wants to friend me they have to be a friend of someone who is already on my friends list or I have to send the invite. I've got people on my friends list on Facebook that I don't even talk to because they are just there because of SF because in order to complete some of the daily goals/quests you have to have so many "neighbors". So I'm hoping that with this new game, they do not do that (meaning you have to have so many of your friends playing or be friends in order to accomplish a task) or they open it up to Google. I've got other games I play on my tablet (township, Pearls Peril, Seaside Farm, just to name a few) that are linked to google play and I don't have to have those on my FB friends list.

One of the major points is this is a Real-Time game.
That means a day in the life of your Sim lasts a real time day or al least close to it.
Unless you want to pay real money to speed things up you have to wait for your Sim to eat, sleep or perform any task.

That is how it is in Freeplay too. I don't really mind it because I can send my adult sims to work or children/preteen/teens to school, log out of the game and walk away for 8 hours before they all return home. The only time it has become a major drag is when they have those time limited quests/challenges.

The majority of the time I just have my sims "snack" when they are hungry and if they are extremely hungry then I'll sit them down to eat and move onto the next house. (I have like 30? sims in my Freeplay world) By time I get the last household eating I can circle around back to the first one and send them do other things or off to school/work and then go to the next and so on. The only time I have to actually stay at the home while my sims are performing a task is when they have to clean the pool. If I leave that home and then come back, the pool isn't clean. Sad

I actually kind of wish they would get this launched globally already. I'm a bit bored with Freeplay. Laughing Although I've got washer and dryers now!! Woohoo! Oh and clothes drying lines/racks like the ones for outside! Actually that's pretty bad considering we have washer and dryers in Freeplay but not in the PC game! Mad
