Last week I read the words I'd been hoping for and got so excited I almost cried: Stardew Valley is coming to mobile on October 24th. While, my colleagues know of my love for the game I think my reasons behind it have always been a bit of a mystery to them.

The wonderful thing is that everyone's reasons for loving it are different, though some of you lovely gamers reading might experience the same sort of deal.

The top 5 best games like The Sims for iPhone and iPad

I'm sure you've played The Sims at least once in your life, if not to escape your own uncertain existence then likely to trap your Sims in the pool or set the house on fire and remove all of the doors. What? No, of course I've never done that… *ahem*

Whichever version of the game you've played or picked up there's always a similar pattern. Make your Sim, figure out what their aspirations are, build up your house (probably use motherlode in the cheats menu), and make friends with other Sims as you go.

These five games will give you that familiar feeling of managing your new non-existent dependents whilst also getting something out of it yourself – whether you want to build a successful life overall or just revel in a bit of drama
