Bum: simulation of life [review]




Who counts their gaming culture since the late nineties and the beginning of the two thousandth, one must remember these text simulators most specific genres. You have to play for, for example, a student who needs to raise money to climb the ladder of the local area and do other usual things for people. But the only thing – it’s all happening in the window with a pair of dice dozen text such as “go to work” or “beer”. Now, in 2014, it seems that this is not the place, but there – there you are, this game is about the homeless . And, rest assured it a place there.


“Homeless”, like all projects of this genre, is designed to, as they say, hand made – start without you all, with ten rubles in his pocket, and done – if done – the country’s president. Ways for the development of the set, but no one path will not be allowed for a reason. For example, if you are tired of begging in the trash, and I want a normal job, then unlearn all right – without the three classes and the courts will not take revenge. Restrictions not only on education – without shoes will not be allowed to “McDuck”, luxury cars necessarily need to head of the company, and without decent wages do not even think to get married (to earnings, however, are not necessary).


To the homeless life honey did not seem, developers screwed three parameters: health, food and happiness. When one of them to zero, you are given a week to pick it up – if you do not manage, homeless die. Rising features of simple but painful: the food have to spend a lot of money (a good restaurant to satisfy your hunger more than eating with garbage, but also cost a pretty penny), raise health bars or private clinics, and happiness – to start a fight or go to the sauna. Of course, now.

Indicators fall with every action and very noticeable – especially after work, so that the first half of the game: the eternal war with three sliders that never filled up to half. You will maneuver between starvation, suicide on the basis of depression and the possibility of a stroke; and all this can happen at once.


Sources of income are simple but very colorful – especially in the initial stage. Walk through the garbage, pass the bottle (watch out for the course!) Pressanut student – and then spend the night in the box. As usually happens with these games, the first hour or two to play a very difficult, but incredibly inetresno – literally trying to survive. Then significantly easier, even if do not add the money (the game is worth starting money, but will not give up and the extra) – there is a stable job, income, money for an apartment is about to accumulate, will soon go on vacation. At this stage, interest in the “homeless” is lost, unless, of course, you do not set the goal of becoming president – then you just need to sit for hours and tapping a combination of “work-food-health-work.”

However, in this prosperous stage is an interesting detail that perfectly reflects our lives – as soon as you come out from the boxes will be loaded onto at least a foreign car and take off an apartment, goof off time will be gone. To look into the actions tab, raising happiness, will less and less, but the fun memories of how collected bottles to give back to the bandits, forget as a bad dream. Amazing, watch the transformation of the protagonist of a classic character dashing 90 in fed 2000s.


Since the ” Homeless “application inexpensive, and you can try it – may well please. As on iOS this kind of games is small (unlike his rival robot), and sometimes you want -to about homeless people and a great option “lupanut pivasom (300r).”
