    I found it somewhere else thanks. I uninstalled it after 10 minutes because I didn't like the LARGE amount of permissions I had to accept for install. I don't like any application reading and WRITING my contacts list. Modifying battery statistics I thought was strange too, application trying to hide the amount of juice it uses?

    I also had this installed for a short while.
    Game was far from optimized for the N1's hardware imo.
    One of the games that made my phone heat up like a radiator. Although I have to admit I did play for a few hours when I just got it.
    But I decided it was best for me not to keep the game :p

    It didn't cause any problems either tho, I just tend to keep track of the heat my nexus generates and this seemed to heat it up quite a bit more/faster then other apps I've tried.
    Ofcourse there's no 100% sure way to tell, I can't reproduce exact conditions or anything, I just observe :)

    Yeah after quite a while I started charging, but I never factor in the time I've had it plugged in. Because plugged in+screen on=heat.

    @bigmerf How are you insalling an apk through asto. My files never work from there unless im doing it incorrectly or a premium version is needed. I have to end up emailing it to myself which initiates the native package installer with the attachment and due to the size of this file I cant attach.

I put it in the download file of my sd card i go on astro on my phone and find the download file click it > click the file and a popup comes up asking to open the app manager. i click it and another screen comes up asking if you want to install the app. click and launch it

    What bigmerf said up above. First time I'd done it - worked straight away.

    Hmmm, trying to install through astro does work for me either. I click on the file in the download folder, select to open with app manager....but then it doesn't give the option to install. I've tried numerous times and also downloaded the file a couple of times but I get the same result. Oh well, the Sims was never my favorite.

    Be sure to check the option to allow installation of APK from other sources in the system settings.

    Should be the topmost setting in "Menu"/"Settings"/"Applications".

    I wonder if that is specific for 2.o and up my G1 wont do it period and my N1 does it intermittently depending on the apk. I will see if I can find some specifics and @Zephrem thanks thought of that and it was checked
