How much can you mess with the Sims?

I tried searching for this, but could not find anything about this. How much can you mess with your sim? I remember playing the original and being pretty mean to them to see how the react. Can you do things on the iPhone version or is it pretty tame?

well to what extent do you mean?

Let me tell you that you can only control 1 sim (up to 3 different accounts) and as far as user to sim actions, there isn't much you can do that they will react to. It's pretty much a small pocket-sized Sims. I mean you can't build a house (though you can upgrade it a few times, the sizes are set), and you focus more on relationships around the neighborhood and getting a job and what-not. You can get married, make friends, and do a lot of actions to other sims (Like annoy/slap/kick over trash can/embarrass/creep out/woohoo). Though if you plan on getting this game, wait till an update. The game is insanely unplayable to the point that it crashes on me AT LEAST within 3 mins of playing the game as of right now. Which is really lame.

i dont think there gonna update it,aside from the downloabale stuff you can buy, i dont think there adding anything new playability wise to the game its
EA there not very update friendly with that, its fun when it doesn't crash just not much to do, except woohoo your sims girlfriend or whatever or go fishing, idk you get little quests but besides that whatever you dress your sim as in the beginning he stays as, and there aren't many selections, there's like 5 buildings to go to and a park, you upgrade your house 3 times to get the maximum house, and you can buy stuff for your house, tvs, beds, entertainment stuff, plants,etc. you can have your own garden after you upgrade the 1st time, and then you have to go to work once you get a job, that's about it, fun game, but it does crash pretty often, which seems more and more lately

Yeah exactly. And I don't care if they update it with more content, I just want a playable game damnit! rofl. And yeah it seems like it gets worse and worse each time I attempt to play. it is fun for a bit and I don't mind fishing for money so I can fully buy everything i want in my house. But everytime I try to even GET a fish it crashes lol.

BTW Sundance Kid, added you xbox live last night. Was hoping you'd get on cause me and some friends needed one more person for a full party on CoD4 or CoD:WaW

Nah there isn't much of that in this version. No pools or swimming, no ladders to use, and your toilet stays unless you as the user move it when in decoration mode.
