Turning the classic board games that we have all cherished and enjoyed growing up into apps for our devices is always a good idea. One of the benefits of having board games on your mobile device is that you no longer have to worry about losing game pieces or cards, as everything is right there in the palm of your hand. Thankfully, big time developer Electronic Arts has been able to bring back that same nostalgic excitement we have all enjoyed with The Game of Life.
The objective of the game is to accumulate the most money out of all of the players before retirement. Throughout the game, you will be faced with tough life decisions to be made such as whether to attend college, which career path to take, which house to buy, as well as many others. While there is no on-line multiplayer, The Game of Life offers “Pass ‘N Play” where you can play with up to three friends or against the computer. Whether you decide to settle down and pursue the safer route to success or decide to make the risky decisions in life, this classic game will keep you busy striving for that millionaire status!
The 3D environment that is shown while your game piece moves around the board is impressive. Along with a map available, you are able to zoom in and out by pinching the screen in order to view the upcoming spaces.
Tired of the in-game song that gets repeated over and over? Take control by playing your music from your iTunes instead!
The most controlling you will do in this game is rotating a spinner. Hard to grade that.
Medium – While there is no real incentive such as achievements or a ranking system to play the game over and over, the fact that this game is tons of fun to play with others is enough.
