Life simulation games for mobile phones are gaining more popularity these days, especially for Nirvana. While the Sims series has largely dominated the PC and Mac for decades, there hasn’t been much on the mobile front in terms of simulation games that offer the same gameplay or depth. Thankfully, that’s changed over the past few decades, and there are now some cool life simulators that you can play on PC with the help of a simulator. These games are free-to-play on Android and iOS devices. Let’s take a look at the best life simulation games for iOS and Android in 2021.
Nirvana – Game of Life
If you want to explore and enjoy an amazing experience, you should try Nirvana – Game of Life. This game has gained massive popularity these days due to the many lives you can ‘simulate’. The player will play as a soul and travel from one body to another in a life cycle. The game’s goal is to reach Nirvana by breaking the ‘cycle.’ So, every decision you make influences the life you play in the game. This game can be played both on Android and iOS mobile phones. If you want to play it on PC, you can use the Android simulator.
There are also social properties where you can interact with your “acquaintances” (friends who act connected to your account via Facebook or other social sites), complete weekly events and other specific tasks to level up your character/unlock new furniture and clothes. Since you can’t have things like marriage or kids, you can have fun with all your avatars and their stuff.
The Sims Mobile
The Sims Mobile is almost a Sims 4 interface for mobile devices; the style of artwork, clothing, furniture, and even game attributes are taken directly from the last Sims game in this series. Just like in the real game, you can design their personality and appearance, build their house, put them to work (sports include professions like fashion designer, bartender, doctor, and more), socialize with other Sims, or practice their favorite hobbies, like cooking or playing guitar. They can even get married and have children.
Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp
This isn’t exactly a traditional life sim, but I thought it was worth including in the list. Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp allows you to create a personality, decorate a camp, interact with all the animal characters from the early Animal Crossing games, and meet another individual “acquaintances” (real friends added through social networks or directly through sports). The game also places a significant emphasis on crafting, clothing, and mini-games like fishing, so you’ll have plenty to do in the sport.
BitLife – Life Simulator
This game isn’t as extensive as some of the additional life simulations listed above, but I certainly spent a few hours playing it, and it’s fun in its way. It turns out that the text-based game has a personality to live, and is it upstairs in college? What kind of work will they be doing? Smuggling drugs through an airport or even vacationing abroad? The iOS version is a bit better and more up-to-date than the Android variant, as in the iOS variant, you will have pets and can escape from prison, but the game developers will release an update soon!
