'The Urbz' (GBA) - Screens

by Rainier on July 2, 2004 @ 10:15 a.m. PDT

For the first time, Sims are living in the city where reputation (rep) is everything. Players will custom-create these new Sims, called Urbz, by customizing their unique style and building their status to become the biggest "player" in the city. A few days ago we had new Urbz screens for the console versions, today the GBA is at bat with some new visuals, read more to check them out..

The Sims have moved to the City where action is 24/7 and reputation means everything. Sims who live in the City are known as The URBZ, and they have a bold new look and attitude. Go to work and be challenged by bosses at locations like the Sushi Bar, Chop Shop, or Bootleg Fireworks, Inc. Success at work brings promotions, access to new power socials and gear to influence your new lifestyle. Flaunt your attitude by styling your URBZ using the detailed new character engine; then cross the velvet ropes of an uptown night club or explore the subway to earn new skills and items for your high-rise crib. It's up to you whether your URBZ become big-time players on the street or are lost in the crowd. It's all about reputation as The URBZ are living the dream in a City that never sleeps.

The Game Boy Advance version of The URBZ also has a brand new city adventure. Welcome to Miniopolis, a bustling city poised on the brink of ruin. After getting fired from your job as a window washer, you stumble upon Daddy BigBucks' devious plot to take over the city. To thwart his evil schemes you have to get access throughout the city by building up your reputation to become the biggest "player" in the city; ultimately making it to that deluxe penthouse in the sky.
