How will you live your BitLife?

Will you try to make all the right choices in an attempt to become a model citizen sometime before you die? You could marry the man/woman of your dreams, have kids, and pick up a good job along the way.

Or will you make choices that horrify your parents? You could descend into a life of crime, start prison riots, smuggle duffle bags, and cheat on your spouse.

It's all up to you...

So I was like scrolling through the App Store like a normal day trying to find me a game that would save me thirty minutes of boredom. I found this and it didn’t look all that good, and normally when I’m not sure about an app I scroll through the reviews, to see if other people thought it was worth their time. I see this one review that was ECSTATIC about the game, practically worshipping its existence, and I thought to myself, “Well, I won’t get addicted to the game, but it might as well be worth a try.” I downloaded it, and couldn’t keep my hands off of my phone. And then, let me just say, we’re here a day later and I’m writing a review. I was excited to get out of school, not just because school can be boring, and my fish just died this morning, but because I wanted to play this game. Hah. Anyways, I suggest that if you, yourself, are looking through the reviews, let me tell you this; it’s free. Why not give it a try? It’s also really fun. I do think there should be a few more things to do, like, I dunno actually. But I do think you should be able to go like day-by-day, or week-by-week, even month-by-month if you wanted to. I personally like the year-by-year but the week-by-week could be cool. So just, authors of this game, you’ve created a masterpiece, and readers of this review, download it. Right now.

(main thing real quick- make the button MONTHLY PLEASE!!) here are some suggestions i really have put thought into and feel strongly about. i'm hoping a developer will see this!! so, i think there should be more with kids, like more events. for example, report cards sometimes, and kids misbehaving, and you have the option of disciplining them or not, or maybe even like abusing them which is bad lol, and just yelling at them or something. and also you should be told when your kids is sick, and you have the option of paying to take them to the doctor. because in real life kids ARE expensive. so yeah i just think there should be more involvement or whatever the word is, with kids :) also twins and triplets should be more common because i had 20 kids, and i was trying to get twins or triplets, and none of them were!! 🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ oh and i almost forgot, really important, you should have like a contact list. there should be "family" and "friends" and "ex's/ex friends" and you can try to be nice to the ex friends, and become friends with ex's, etc... OH ALSO THIS JUST CAME TO ME- if you go on a vacation withOUt your kids, you should have to like pay for a babysitter or daycare, and you can ask a friend or family member to babysit them for free

Fun, but leaves something to be desired

As a lifelong superfan of EA’s Sims franchise, finding an easy-to-play, mobile text-based life simulator was a treat and a half for me. I’ve spent quite a bit of time on BitLife and I really do love the quirky humor and the fact that the game is set in the real world. I also appreciate how many countries are in the game and how many occupations there are. The variety is strong in this game.

However, there’s a lot of room for improvement. As I’ve seen other users state, the game feels kind of shallow, for lack of a better word. The differences from life-to-life are mostly superficial. Story elements and events repeat over and over, and every life, no matter how seemingly different, feels pretty similar in the end. I especially found that, while the game includes several different countries, the course of your life always feels very American. Tweaking the narrative and the affects of your actions depending on what country you live in would add a much-needed layer of detail to the game. My last concern (which is really more of a suggestion), is that while you frequently get updates on political events, there’s no political career path. You should have the opportunity to run for office, especially if you’re in the legal, corporate, or military profession. That would be a very interesting and much-appreciated addition.

All in all, keep up the good work, it’s a fun game!
