Apple Games latest feature steps onto the dance floor with a review of the recently released The Sims DJ for Apple's iPod multimedia device. In the game players attempt to keep the dancers happy by selecting the right mix of songs. If successful they win Simoleans to pay upgrade their Sim. The article features an overview of the game and an examination of the skills available in the game.

Pleasantview might be a nice place to live, but it’s become a bit staid. The town needs a DJ to liven up the nightlife, and we think you’re the right person for the job. We’ll get you started with a collection of songs in the rock, pop, rap, R ‘n’ B, dance, country, and world music genres, but make sure you buy additional tunes from your iPod library to bolster your mix skills.

Watch the icons above the Sims’ heads to see which genres they prefer and choose a song that you think will get most of them out on the dance floor. Stop the sliders at just the right spots to create the perfect mix and earn the most cred points from the crowd, as shown by their cumulative happiness and unhappiness scores. Switch to a tune from another genre to get more wallflowers moving and grooving, which earns you additional cred points, but watch the current dancers’ reactions.

Luckily, you have at your disposal DJ talents that help you sway the dancers’ attitudes. For example, you can convince a Sim to like the current music genre and switch them back to their original tastes when the time is right. The Free Drinks, Mirror Ball, and Scratch mini-games let you influence many Sims simultaneously, assuming you have the skills to succeed.
