Report this review 0 Written by Anonymous February 20, 2021 Be careful about this, but don’t say “no” Billie is a text based life simulator that uses realism to live another life. You can set parental controls on the game and it is simple to turn off violence.
I would say that this game is for kids ten to eleven years and up depending on how mature your child is. There are choices a character to make including one-night stands(for adult players, you give it an age and it sets what to show) and there are choices to drink and smoke.
This game is fun and addictive but there are time limits that can be set. Overall, this game is great, but other reviewers say that there are too many bad decisions that can be made.
However, depending on your age (16 and up People are given the option of premarital sex and one-night stands. The main issue with the game would be some sexual situations, but they CAN be avoided.

This game contains inappropriate for all kids and teens due to its life simulator. Report this review 8683328 Written by Snarkier June 15, 2019, Too inappropriate for many reasons for younger than older teens.
I'm a super liberal person, an activist for LGBTQ+ community and other marginalized groups and have no problem with any of the social aspects of this game but as far as theft, murder, drug use, etc, I am not good with my 10-year-old playing it. Report this review 8893613 Written by laser.Chloe September 5, 2021 Stop overreacting I let my child start playing this at the age of 10, sure it has sex references, language and stuff but if you know that they’re responsible and won’t say the swear words and say no to the sex things, they’ll probably be ok.
Report this review 8878844 Written by Momof2USA July 27, 2021 So glad I checked in on this. Way past PG- 13 . Accidentally let me 10- year -old son download this a couple of days ago, finally managed to moderate today, wow, super glad I did.
(I blame myself for mindlessly pressing the touch ID to download as I was on the phone with someone else... look, I was distracted OK ? I can see how a teen would find this stuff scandalous or play this for shock value, but it's way over my son's age level.
I'm not even clear on how this game is played, it is text based and reads like Irving Welsh and Chuck Palahniuk had a love child and their love child wrote a life story about someone. Unless there's nothing to prevent kids his age, but it's also targeted to him which is weird because he heard of it was in another game's ads.
Report this review 8860079 Written by Libliz813 June 13, 2021 Not appropriate for kids Many of these reviews mention the sexual situations your character can be in, but they don't mention that you can add your own things to it like lingerie photo shoots and sexting. This is not how kids should learn about nature topics and adults are clearly using this to live vicariously through a character.
You could marry the man/woman of your dreams, have kids, and pick up a good job along the way. You could descend into a life of crime, start prison riots, smuggle duffle bags, and cheat on your spouse.
There are no images besides the icons for choosing the activities you want to participate in. There is an option to drop out of school at the ripe old age of 5 (though my parents wouldn’t let me).
You can choose to make regular doctor visits, go to the movies, go to the library, meditate, and go on vacation (if you have the money). Once you turn 13 years old, you can pick your sexual orientation (straight, bisexual, or gay) and find a significant other.
Sometimes your partner will get mad at you and then you have to choose whether to fight or apologize. For example, you can commit a crime like Grand Theft Auto (I was able to successfully steal a VW Beetle), pick pocket (I got $3 for pick pocketing a hippie), or murder.
You can also choose to have plastic surgery if you have the money (the options are specific to male and female…the screenshot below is for female but males can choose to get penis enlargement surgery). For example, we were asked to deliver a Duffel bag of unknown substance to Canada for $6,000.
However, it does collect device type, date, time, and behavior within the app. Let’s just say that I was glad my older kids were in school and my youngest was napping.
Some reviewer mention that after playing one round of this game, the choices they made caused their character to choose to commit suicide. Simulation games can be fun and absorbing, but parents might object to the content.
Take a look at some of the latest apps that parents need to be aware of and what kinds of dangers they pose to your kids. It’s a simulation game in which players are assigned a profile to play from infancy through until death.
And for younger teens and pre-teens, parents may be worried about the exposure to risky behaviors in the game. Blend is a social app that allows users to share photos and videos, send messages, and rate each other on “hotness”.
Plus, the site uses location information to pair users who are geographically close to each other. When used the right way, educational apps aimed at helping kids and teens improve their school skills can be a good thing.
Anonymous feedback apps like Lips invite bullying and trolling. And with Lips, those comments may show up on the user’s public Instagram feed, increasing the humiliation factor.
Lips is supposed to be age-restricted to users 17 and over, but there’s nothing in place to stop a younger child from downloading the app. Keeping your child or teen safe online requires vigilance.
