This paper presents the basic features of quantum simulation based on continuous-variable systems. Far from attempting at being complete, the paper is a compendium of the limitations, possibilities, and perspectives in quantum simulations with such a class of systems. It includes a short summary on the phase-space description of basic continuous-variable states and operations and a gentle introduction to the most crucial results on the simulation of Hamiltonians for continuous-variable systems.
