Pros & Cons:
- A cute Sims-like game you can take with you!
- Connected to the Papaya network so you have access to friends you’ve already connected with that way!
- The file size for this game is HUGE.
- You can only install it on phones – it does not support tablets.
- My character was cut in half on every screen, and re-installing several times didn’t fix it.
- There isn’t much to do.
Love Life is a Sims-like virtual game of earning the most money, wearing the best clothes to hopefully attract a soul-mate… but that’s about it and our gripes start…
I have to be honest, I wasn’t much impressed with this game overall. I had a hard time getting it to work right to start with. Screen either didn’t load or gave error messages half the time, and when it did load, I had weird bugs, like only ever getting to see half of my character (see screen shots for what I’m talking about.) I tried uninstalling the app a few times, thinking maybe it was just a bad installation, but I had the same problems every time.
Second, the file size on this game is massive. Over 30MB massive. With it installed, my entire phone had issues running. And to be honest, I can’t see why. I’ve had more complex games with more to do that take up a fraction of the space on my device, so I was really disappointed here.
Third, the game really doesn’t have much to do. You make your character and give him or her a career (you have three choices) and then the whole thing really revolves around earning money to buy clothes so you can get a virtual person to be your boyfriend or girlfriend. Honestly, it seems a bit shallow to me. I wanted a story, or to learn more about people, and it was entirely based on how expensive your clothes are and how popular you are in your career. It’s like virtual high school.

To be honest, I really didn’t find the game much fun. After having to delete most of the other apps on my phone just to get it to install, and then having it still be so buggy, I was admittedly frustrated. On top of that, finding there really wasn’t much to do other than look pretty and be popular really didn’t do much for me. But then, I wasn’t the type of person to be all that interested in being popular when I was in high school, so it’s no surprise I don’t find the virtual version any more interesting. 😕
Because you only get a small amount of energy to level your career, which is how you make money to buy more clothes, there is a reason to keep going back.
I was disappointed in the graphics. With such a huge install footprint, I was expecting a lot, and it was very basic and cartoony. On top of that, graphics didn’t load correctly for me, so I only ever saw half of my character, which really defeats the point of buying new clothes for her if I can’t actually see them.
Accelerometer, Vibration & Sound:
The game doesn’t use the accelerometer or vibration, since it’s essentially a Sims game where the point is to be popular.
