Singles: Flirt Up Your Life is a video game developed by German studio Rotobee and published by Deep Silver in 2003.

It is very similar to The Sims in that the player is responsible for characters who have to be taken care of, such as by ordering them to eat, sleep, go to work, etc.

The game is available for sale via download from the company's website, with payment required to continue playing after the one-hour time limit expires.

The CD-ROM version sold in the US censors any nudity throughout the game.

Comparison to earlier games[edit]

Singles was largely panned by critics for being a rip-off of The Sims and the way it offered little challenge,[1] with the player required to simply follow a routine of making the characters progress from making small talk through to professing love then running off to bed together via the simple interaction menus. The 'needs' are also considered fairly inconsequential, with the characters never starving to death even when their 'hunger' need has dropped to zero.[citation needed]
