The Sims Freeplay – pimp your house
Part of the fun of The Sims is designing your bachelor pad – we couldn't quite afford the top of the range home ents systems we first wanted but some tasks do require a bit of splurging in the Home Store.
When it came to themed houses, we pushed aside the medieval castle in favour of a sci-fi geek haven, decked out with old school computers and pizza boxes. Eventually you can start making your mark on the town with parks and shops – but for that you'll need patience.
