Singles: Flirt Up Your Life has lots of similarities to the The Sims series of games and is the first game in the Singles game series. The game was released back in 2004 and was a very impressive release for its time so it still stands up on a visual and detail level today.

The game is designed as a more mature alternative to The Sims and has players taking control of a two roommates as they attempt to form a couple. Build your singles and pair them together to see if they can make the romance a success. You have control of how they go about their lives and the decisions they make so the final outcome is completely yours to control.

Singles: Flirt Up Your Life offers a good selection of singles for you to select with their own vibe and feel. There are endless possibilities of matchups available allowing for plenty of replay value.

Players are given plenty of other options to explore right from the start of the game. All of your standard options are available including the ability to place furniture to create your dream house and the ability to chase your dream career. Everything from The Sims gameplay is also there with players having to stay on top of their character’s basic needs (food, hygiene, money, comfort, energy, etc).

To advance through the game in order to reach the ultimate goal you’ll focus on improving your relationship with your roommate and thus slowly unlocking additional actions to perform. You’ll grow from the simple talking based actions into more physical ones including hugging and kissing just like any real world relationship.

If you need a more mature life simulation game then the Singles has plenty of enjoyable hours in it, just don’t expect too much from it.
