What is BitLife Life Simulator?
BitLife Life Simulator App is a text-based video game that allows users to control the life of the character you are playing. The game was launched in 2018 for iOS users but in February ‘19 it was made available for android users. Several updates have been made to date.
The game/app allows you to create you. As you tap “start new game” there is a random character with random traits. The game allows you to choose your personal traits, features, date of birth, how you were conceived and if you have pets. The game collects personal information such as your parent’s name, where you live and the number of your siblings.
The game works just like our life-cycle. There are 3 stages in this game; Childhood, Adult and Death. The game generates events and scenarios related to the mentioned age. You can update your age by tapping the “Age” button and it will add a year to your current age in the game.
Characters with ages 0 to 5 are considered as infants and ages 5 to 8 are considered as childhood stage. The scenarios include admission in primary school, first kiss and in-app purchases asking you to make money from your parents.
By the age of 12, 4 graphs or moods also appear on the screen which shows happiness, smarts, health
and looks and maintaining them is the key.
Adulthood isn’t easy in the app as well. Players tend to find their first date, a job or set up a freelance profile. Some of them have to pass a driver’s test as per location and by the age of 18 and smart play, there is an option to emigrate, buy a house, gamble or just party with friends.
If the players don’t maintain the health bar, they die soon. But if they keep it balanced, they tend to live long and die a natural death. However, you can re-start the game after dying as well. Dying with “dignity” will give you a ribbon that will be displayed on your gravestone. For example “Fertile” for someone who produced lots of children.
Relationships matter a lot in BitLife Life Simulator and there is a relationship bar with each one of them. The relationship non-player characters include your character’s relationships with parents, siblings, friends/colleagues, lovers, pets and even nephews and nieces. Once the relationship bar tends to go low for a certain relationship, the relationship might break loose
and interaction stops.
The most important relationship is the one with your lover, although you can flirt with other potential lovers
in the “love” tab and there’s another tab named as “ex” and there are chances of dating again.
