Virtual Families iPhone app Review


The Virtual Families iPhone app is a little family simulation that lets you pick your own little players and help them succeed in life.  You can pick out of thousands of little virtual people and help them to choose a profitable career where they can start saving up for bigger expenses.  Help your character to provide for themselves as far as necessities and luxuries go and then help them find a suitable partner.  Once you have chosen a person to marry then you can help them raise a family and start enjoying the happiness that comes from having little kids.  You can follow them out to family outings as well as help them to take care of their home and make it better.  This game is fun because among all the good things you are trying to do with the family, you will still have to deal with life as it throws you curve balls.   You will have to fix house problems, injuries, natural disasters, and a variety of different mini puzzles that the game offers to keep it fresh and interesting.  The popular mac and PC game has finally made it to the mobile market and you will find yourself playing for hours on end in order to help this family overcome the struggles of life and live peacefully and happily.

One of the great things about this app is that it will continue to run in real time even when your phone is asleep.  That way you can constantly check up on them and see their progress no matter where you are what time of the day it is.
