Suburbia is a Facebook game that clearly takes inspiration from the Sims Social (a game that has been retired for some time now). The game isn’t just some clone though and has plenty of fun to be had for fans of life simulation games.


In Suburbia players take control of their character’s life in a 2D environment and have complete control over their actions. It is up to you to choose an appropriate career, help your sim achieve their life goals, keep them happy and deal with the situations that life throws at you.

You’ll start your Suburbia adventure with little funds and a small run down place to call home. As you spend more time in the game you can purchase a huge collection of objects to improve your living conditions and eventually expand your house. Players aren’t limited to moving around their own home though with the option to visit your friends houses where you can interact with them and complete tasks for them.

Customisation options do also extend outside the home with players having plenty of options to design and decorate their garden which players with a green thumb will particularly enjoy.

The game is largely based around completing tasks like most Facebook games which are easy to achieve with enough playtime. You can’t just focus on tasks though as your character has constant needs such as playing their guitar, going to the bathroom and eating.


Tasks aren’t the only Facebook game aspect that Suburbia has adopted with a standard energy system behind everything that you do in the game. This of course keeps your play sessions to blocks of around 15 to 20 minutes like most casual Facebook games.

With the death of Sims Social, Suburbia is one of the better online life simulation games available and will definitely keep fans of the genre occupied.


  • Free Facebook game that feels like The Sims.
  • Control your avatar and help them get satisfaction from their life.
  • Design and customise your home.
  • Great alternative to The Sims Social.
  • Visit your friends homes and help them with tasks.

    This game has been pretty dead for over a year. Only limited amount of challenges and active play. Once you achieve that…..nothing. Just changing clothes and moving furniture. Until they release more than the first five short episodes….don’t bother.

    Stopped playing a year ago, came back today to find out NOTHING has changed, there’s nothing new, and waiting for Episode 6: A Hairy Message. Either get on the ball or take it off Facebook!
