With the sheer number of available games both on the Play Store and App Store, you really won't grow bored even if you only had your smartphone to keep you entertained. 

There are shooter games, arcade games, and if you're a fan of life simulation games, there's no shortage of those too. In fact, let this article help you out a bit by listing down the best life simulation games available for download. 

What are Life Simulation Games?

Life simulation games, also known as life simulator games, have been defined by Android Authority as "games where you control someone's or something's entire life." 

It is a rather niche genre but they are not limited to just games wherein you control the life of a human character. Games wherein you control the life of animals and such can be considered as life simulation games.

You get to be sorted into one of the four Houses, attend classes, and even duel with other wizards and witches.

"The Sims" is probably the most well-known life simulation game out there. If you would like to play "The Sims" but you would rather stick to mobile than play on desktop, there are actually two games you can choose from. 

First of which is "The Sims: FreePlay," the older option between the two "The Sims" mobile games. "The Sims: FreePlay" shares a lot of the same elements as the desktop game. 

The Sims: Mobile

"The Sims: Mobile" is the newer option between the two "The Sims" life simulation mobile games. It is essentially the same as "The Sims: FreePlay" but, according to Android Authority, "The Sims: Mobile" runs better because it is the newer game. 

Virtual Families 2

Life simulation games usually involve avatars of players that can be controlled. That is not the case with "Virtual Families 2." According to Android Authority, the character, whom the player adopts, raises, and helps live their life, "will engage with you and thank you for your help along the way."

AltLife and BitLife

No list of life simulation games will ever be complete without including both "AltLife" and "BitLife." Both games are essentially the same and are generally each other's biggest competition. 

"AltLife" involves the player starting off as a baby and you will have to make many decisions along the way until your avatar dies. Players get to choose their avatar's careers, relationships, and other things. 

For "BitLife," the player is given a character to raise all the way into adulthood until death. You have the option to send your character to college or go take an alternative path. When your character dies, you're given a new character to play as.
