21 The Sims 3



The Sims is one of the most successful PC franchises in history, and EA has been (mostly unsuccessfully) attempting to port spinoffs of the franchise to platforms other than the PC for years. While swapping out a mouse for an obviously less accurate, chubby finger as the main control method for a game has its downsides, The Sims 3 works pretty well on the iPhone. It's fair to say that the game is more or less a significantly paired down adaptation of the PC game of the same name. We were disappointed with the iPhone version due to its lack of house-construction features and thinned-out customization options across the board, but if you're the type of Sims fan that likes to focus on building relationships amongst characters, the App Store port might get the job done for you.
