Light version of SimCity, but still fun
on March 11, 2013
Having grown up on SimCity, I downloaded this game with high expectations. While they weren't all met, I was greated with surprise at how fun this game can be. The game is almost as emphatic on city development as SimCity is, but feels as though it is more personal. You control how many public vehicles you have and where they go or what they do. People will also tell you what they need from you which helps you in making your decisions about routes and what to build next in the city. SimCity didn't offer too much of that except for the occassional newspaper articles (assuming you read those). It is pretty easy for the game to get into routine. If you have all the basic needs met and people aren't getting upset, the game can be monotonous and just go through the motions without anything updating. You'll get money, people will go to work, and life will be good. This can get annoying and not very fun. I prefer a little something extra with my games, especially mobile games since they have so much to live up to compared to traditional games. If you're looking for a fun city simulator, I would give this one a short. It's not groundbreaking, incredible, or a step towards a new direction, but it's a fun time killer and will provide enjoyment.
