On top of everything The Sims Mobile now forces players to watch Ads

The Sims Mobile continues with bad decisions and changes to the game. After the highly controversial decision to charge players for individual color swatches the game has made another bad move.

Player @nightzel has noticed a very sly change to The Sims Mobile – forced advertisements. He sent us a YouTube video where, after travelling between Neighborhoods for a couple of times he was forced to watch an advertisement before entering the neighborhood of his choice.

You can check out this addition in the video below – we’ve timed the video to begin at 6:25 where the ad popped out:

However, that’s not all that The Sims Mobile Team has done with ads in the game. Remember the ability to earn additional currency points by watching ads after completing a particular event? Well, the game now forces you to watch an ad and get the bonus currency without having the ability to not watch an ad and get the standard rewards.

Considering that The Sims Mobile only works with Wi-Fi / Data turned on there’s no way for you to skip these forced ads.

  1. Another annoying feature that was added in a previous update is the surprising choices. When a surprising choice pops up randomly, (usually after finishing events or during events) it forces you to spend mostly your cupcakes and simcash and rarely have you spend coins on or suffer the consequences and in return you get an item or an event boost depending what the situation is! The only one that you can bypass without getting punished is the one where you can get furniture. What was EA thinking?! It’s another mobile game based on a popular IP that has been ruined by greed and ignorance! Tip: To bypass a surprising choice without risking getting punished, just press the home button on your iDevice twice and swipe the app up to reset it. Return to the game and do the same thing as it causes a permanent bug. Open the game again and it’ll be gone.

  2. This hasn’t happened to me. I have spent money in the game…could that be why? If they force ads on me, that would be the last straw.
