The Sims Medieval is an iOS adaptation of the very same PC game that lets you build a Sim’s life around the romantic era of knights and dragons. Your Sim will walk, talk, and work in a fairytale-like world of simple wooden houses, cauldrons, guilds, combat, and noble quests. Fortunately, the less desirable traits of the medieval period, like outhouses, plague rats, sickness, and rampant superstition, are tucked out of the way. In fact, unlike most Sims games, you’re not asked to keep on top of your Sim’s hygiene and toilet habits. Why bother? It can be assumed that, given the time period, everyone stinks like a dying pig anyhow.

4/5 – not too shabby
