Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* AllegedlyFreeGame: The game will shove you 30-45 second video ads at least after three interactions. After that you got random bonuses from money, life points, to actions completing instantly. To remove those ads, you have to purchase VIP 3, which is equivalent to at least $15 (with discounts!)


The game started out very basic, but thanks to regular updates it now includes various things such as more clothes, children, new activities, etc. The game is now in its fifth year running and have seen dozens of updates and new contents- many available for free or via regular simoleons if you completed the given tasks in a limited time before becoming only available via Life Points. The game is the third game in the ''Sims'' franchise to require an online connection to play. ''The Sims Online'' and ''The Sims Social'' were the previous two.

It plays similarly to ''VideoGame/TheSims2'' but is based on ''VideoGame/TheSims3'' assets. While mainline ''Sims'' titles use their own clock, ''The Sims Freeplay'' uses a real-time strategy based on games like ''VideoGame/FarmVille''. Due to this, unlike the main series, it can take real-world hours to do simple tasks. While the game is free-to-play, it's better at this than other titles. The in-game currency, the Simoleon, is easy to get in-game and Life Points can be earned from completing tasks, watching advertisements, or hitting achievements.

* InUniverseGameClock: Unlike most other titles, ''Freeplay'' uses a real-time clock. In most games 1 minute in-game is the equivalent of 1 real-life second. In ''Freeplay'' 1 minute takes literally 1 minute, unless you use Simoleons to get past that. This real-time clock system originated from the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS version of ''The Sims 2'' .
