Apple Games Features The Sims Castaway Stories
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The latest feature article from Apple Games focuses on The Sims Castaway Stories. The game features a story mode centering on the lives of castaways on an island and a freeplay mode for more traditional Sims play. Apple's article includes both a review of the game's features and a list of cheat codes.

You may be cut off from civilization, but Castaway Stories allows you to barter supplies for accessories ranging from a simplistic lean-to the Two Tickets to Paradise Canopied Bed. You can even trade for a vintage “Destruction Day” pinball machine, which was created by the people working in the secretive research lab you’ll learn more about during the story. As in other Sims Stories, you also unlock rewards by progressing through the story and by doing well in your career, which is limited to crafting, gathering, or hunting in this game.

Relationships in Castaway Stories include the non-human variety, as you’ll discover while searching the island. For example, you’ll need to make peace with a local group of orangutans if you want to take the idol sitting at the base of their tree. (Said idol functions much like the volleyball in the movie “Cast Away.”) And watch out for the hyenas, a temperamental group of canines who nevertheless make good pets, if you can figure out how to befriend them. Of course, you’ll eventually meet other Sims, both castaways and local natives. Together, you can build a new Sim community and take David and Jessica’s stories beyond their conclusions.

In free play mode, you can explore everything Castaway Stories has to offer; just make sure you unlock the rewards in story mode first. Use a pre-existing Sim or create a new one and explore Wannami Island, which features a Castaway-themed night club, a village, and even a market where you can trade resources for clothes, food, and stuff for your hut. Don’t forget that you can also download bonus items at the Castaway Stories Web site.
