The Sims™ 3 is #1 on the iPhone App Store

The Sims™ 3 is #1 on the iPhone App Store

From the best-selling PC franchise in history, the wildly popular simulation game has expanded its virtual world onto the iPhone™ and iPod® touch and the reception has been nothing short of phenomenal.

EA Mobile has launched the highly anticipated The Sims 3 to eager fans worldwide. Since its debut on the App Store on Tuesday, it’s already won the IGN Editor’s Choice Award and is the Top Paid App in the US and in many countries throughout the world. PocketGamer is calling it “…an immaculate rendition of the PC game we've come to know and love, made without a single concession....It's The Sims in your pocket, in full, with all the character building and virtual life you could want."

With the ability to use touch and accelerometer controls to maneuver your Sims through their surroundings, the realistic quality of the game is stunning. The Create-A-Sim feature allows users to customize their Sims with a number of ‘colorful’ personas, physical characteristics, and clothing choices. They can choose the type of job, hobbies and social life they will have; in essence, satisfying or limiting their full potential. The game overflows with opportunities for funny, off-the-wall antics like Sims talking to trees and kicking over trash cans.

This humorously provocative, highly interactive game puts the user in direct control of every experience, reaction, and outcome of their Sims, rendering the taste of a live theater production. Hands down, The Sims 3 is a must-have for diehard fans and first-timers alike on the iPhone.

Download The Sims 3 on the iTunes App Store today!
