You don't have a lot of control in the game.
While you can choose the outfit your character will make bad decisions in, you cannot usually keep her from making those terrible choices. This makes the game frustrating. The game really wants you to spend money, so "good" choices cost you. The game is a fine time killer and is a fine idea, but it is limited and, in my opinion, promotes unkindness and pettiness.
It also is heavy handed with romance and sexuality. This title contains: Sexy stuff. This review Helped me decide 3. Had useful details 4.

Parent Written by Anna B. November 28, She is There were kids smoking cigerettes and this one main character kept trying to "hook" up with all the "hot" chicks at school. In one scene he says: he went to his best friends house and banged his sister all night long.
He taught her all he knew. He thinks his friend would be upset with him--but he didn't care. She wanted it--and wanted him.
So it was all worth it. After viewing other scenes, this same character "bad boy" was trying to hook up with other girls on the episode.

In one scene a girl wanted help finding her sister who she was babysitting and ran outside her home. HE was in the street, down the block from her. He said he would help her--only if she gave him a favor and provided some pleasurable favors for him to help her.
She declined because i chose this option. If I chose the other option, i am certain they would be doing something inappriate.

December 31, Beware of this app What seemed like a creative app for my daughter sexual into a highly inappropriate adventure in sex, alcohol and even drugs. Terrible app. Definitely not for anyone under No good messages here. Just trash. Helped me decide 1. Read my mind 3. Adult Written by rebma97 July 29, Great concept yet superficial Episodes has an excellent premise but falls short on storylines. The stories are soap opera-ish and some aspects are pretty superficial some games encourage you to dress fashionably to help you advance to the story and it would be nice if most of the stories didn't revolve around romance.
Also, I hate how much stuff you have to buy to do more things in the game, and the are super annoying. I do love the concept of allowing the player to make their own choices, so that's cool. Violence: Some stories contain violent aspects and characters can fight sometimes they'll punch each other if they do, though there's no blood. Sex: Most stories revolve around romance.
There's innuendo and references to having sex. A few games have your episode engaging in sex the actual act isn't shown but your character is naked, with just two black lines covering their sensitive parts along with their partner.
Some games contain strong language like "s-t" or "f-k". Consumerism: You have to sit through three before you can play one episode. Also, you need passes to play each episode, and you usually start off with only 3. When you run out, you are encouraged to buy more or you have to wait hours for 3 more. Gems are another thing you can purchase.
They're not needed to play the games but there are some things you can only do with gems like buying outfits and certain choices you can make in the game. Had useful details 2. Read my mind 1. Adult Written by Ti-Anna F.
August 8, Okay storyline So I decided to try this interactive app before I recommend it for my niece.
What your child engages with online
The first thing I noticed was the cost of things and the lack of opportunity to earn anything to pay these cost. As a gamer you usually get the opportunity to earn game currency. Secondly, the story line is going to do what it wants you to do to keep the drama going. I'm not a drama filled individual so some of the things that happened I would never do. If people want to be boring and honest then they should have the choice. I get that choice with my SIM and I find those games extremely fun. Last but not least, the took up more and more time toward the end of the game.
It started to get a little annoying. Keep ad times consistent. This title contains: Consumerism. Helped me decide. Adult Written by Dolly S. September 28, Not suitable for any age The game is offensive.
