Along the way, there will be many different random events to respond to, house malfunctions to repair, and mini-puzzles to solve, all of them adding an unexpected element to the daily routine.

Unfortunately, It Has Gotten Boring
I have had this app for a VERY long time and have gone MANY, MANY generations. At the beginning it was fun, I loved playing with my little people and helping them through their tiny lives. I loved the of each new little kid and the renewal of hope as each new generation was started. I'd help the newer people on the comments all the time, I had a fairly popular questions thing. But after maybe 15 generations and almost all of the awards you can get, it got boring. I checked on it less and less, often times the distance in between the time I checked was so much that all my kids would have moved out and gone to college ( they were babies and very young the last time I checked) and the parents would be old and dead. The house would be covered in trash and dirt and socks and the yard was weed world. So I would choose which kid would inherit the house, they would be depressed because of the recent death and the huge mess, and have them start cleaning it. When they got a spouse the spouse would help clean too. By then they'd be very tired. I would just make them have a kids then I'd go on to do other apps and have a very long time between then an the next time I checked "for old times sake". It turned into a vicious cycle so I just wanted to warn all of you that love it, this happened to me, and my two friends with the iPod/ iPhone version who I got to play, and the friend with the iPad version, so beware.
U should add some stuff to this awesome game
U should add a phone to the game so u could through party's invite people over have neighbors that u create have different villages with homes u buy to move into and to start a family u guys should also let us creat r people and there looks u guys should have cars to buy so the people could go into town and 4 the phone again u guys should have adoption things so u could call to have a adopted kid and call for exterminators and buy clothes out at the stores that a taxi or u and ur car could drive to and u could have a cemetery of all the people that have passed in the game so then the cemetery would come alive at night were the ghosts would come out and do things in the cemetery and u should have aliens and vampires and the aliens could capture the people and obduct them in there UFO and u could have alien baby's that just show up and u could buy and sell and move into houses I hope u take all my ideas and update this game so that it has these changes and every1 would want this game to we're they would buy it and u would make a lot of money so thx 4 reading my ideas 4 this game 😃😃😃
Diseases: To cure hiccups, drag the person to a sink. Any other illness can be discovered by reapeatedly dragging a person until it shows on their action slot.
Repairs: The floor can be repaired by buying the kit in the store and place it in the broken area. Repeatedly place the person on each time they finish until the kit is gone. Workshop walls can be repaired by buying the wall repair item and placed by the hose. Keep placing people by the walls until they are repaired. The birdbath can be repaired by buying the green pump and placed by the birdbath. Place two people over in the area quickly. The shed can be fixed by placing someone on the brown spot in the sandbox. Use the key by the welcome mat to unlock it. To fix the hose, buy tape and drag someone to it after it is placed and while someone is in the shower.
Extra: Red ball can be gained by moving gloves to the bottom of the tool tray and in the top left corner, very top, drag your thumb to the middle of the screen. This may take a few tries. If your people are weak, check if they have food. If you have food, try Vancoymin. (I think thats what its called. Hope this helped. Peace off. BOOP!
