The Sims is a god game which allows you to control your own made up person in a house in an urban town. Bustin’ Out is a sequel to the original ‘Sims’ game, but it adds more gameplay options.
Your overall aims are to get your character promoted in his or her job, and to make them happier in their life. Making them happy is similar to our happiness in real life. Too much work (or school) lowers their happiness rating, as does lack of sleep and socializing, while sitting down watching TV, playing on the computer or seeing their friends, increases it. Being clean actually improves your happiness, so don’t leave your Sim too long waiting for a shower or they get rather grumpy (and smelly).
When you have earned some money working you can improve your house by buying new furniture and other bits for your house. This can be extra fun when you buy things like a dance floor and DJ booth for your front room. Then you can throw a party for your friends in the area. You can also interact with other characters by talking, telling jokes, doing magic tricks etc… just like real life.
As an additional feature, there is a multiplayer mode so two of you can create your own characters which live together.
