Enjoyable life sim Keep in mind this game was originally made in 1986. Despite not being changed since that time a lot of situations are still relatable to our time. It is a shame that also means there aren't any options for homosexuals. Regardless, the game is very immersive and entertaining. The only issue is the events in your life are always the same. However, how you react to them can be changed each playthrough.
This game has all these choices but it's like it want you to play one way and be this nice gentle person, but when I start over nearly all the other actions either punish you for choosing them or make you feel bad, its annoying. There also no actual story you just pick random events in their life, not to mention the College and Store are pretty worthless. This could be way better.
Disappointing With all the interactive novels available lately, this game falls short. The goal of the game is to be a good, normal, straight person, and any departure from this path will result in you being disappointed. If you have been playing Choice of Games and think this might be worth trying, DON'T. It's not worth it. This game has not improved in 30 years (literally), and it never will.
Another ego? It's always fun to be your "other self" and I have always thought about that. Digging in the other plot and events with interactions of causes and effects design a perfect alter ego. Awesome idea! (I wish I could steal your idea but I can't.)
Needs more content It's good, but rather short for what I paid. I expected more. Also as others said there should be more options when it cones to love interests. Also as someone else said it says you're aggressive even if you haven't been? Weird.
Poorly done. 1 choice can eliminate your playthrough and you have to start all over from the beginning. Almost all choices lead to the same result. DON'T DO THE MISTAKE I DID AND BUY THIS GAME!!! Not worth your cash.
Bunches of bugs fixed, including a critical bug getting married with an heirloom in later life.
