  • Click anywhere to tell Timmy to go there.
  • Click on Timmy to scold him if he isn’t doing what you want. (If he starts wandering off, a good scolding will get him following your directions again.)

(you can’t directly make Timmy eat or sleep- he does those himself when he needs to, just guide him so he’s in the right place when he does)


“To create a character, which seemed alive, which noticed me, that could look me in the eyes… and feel real.” – Peter Molyneux.


Guide Timmy around his Boy Enclosure by moving the magic bubble and clicking where you want him to go.

Timmy has a mind of his own, so you can Click on Timmy to scold him if he is ignoring you or if you see him doing something you don’t like. He doesn’t like to be scolded, but it may save his health in the long run.

When Timmy’s hunger bar is full he’s going to want to eat the nearest thing, so be sure to guide him near something healthy if he needs health, or something delicious if he needs happiness! Don’t stop him eating for long once he’s hungry, as it depletes his health.

When his toilet bar is full he’s not going to wait, so try not to have him near his food or bed when the time comes!

When his tired bar is full he will lay down and sleep wherever he is. If you have guided him to his bed, his slumber will heal him extra, but if he sleeps in something gross it will be bad for his health.

Playing with toys cheers Timmy up, but he will play with disgusting things if you let him. Playing with unhygenic things is bad for his health.

If Timmy’s health or happiness is depleted then it’s over- goodbye wonderful child-bonding simulator!

But if you can fill Timmys happiness bar right to the top, you will achieve the ultimate gift- LOVE!
