Gameplay in the Sims FreePlay looks a lot like The Sims 3 from the outside. However, the developers have tried to make it possible to manage your Sims in realtime. This means that one hour in your life equals on hour in theirs, and in theory, means that if you are too busy to check on them for a couple of hours then they won't be living in their own filth by the time you get back.
The game has impressive breadth - you are able to control more than one Sim - in fact up to 16, including managing their careers, gardens, houses and pets! Clearly if the game was faster than realtime, such feats of organization would be impossible by even the most talented multi-tasking gamers.
