Game play:
You have to sign in with a player name.

There are extensive instructions under help to guide you to learn how to buy vehicles, start buildings into production and buy supplies and how to make upgrades. You also have to build roads and watch out for disease outbreaks. You have to build hospitals and they will take care of ill people. Buildings can also catch on fire and you have to put it out before the people leave the area.

Like most G5 games the graphics are very outstanding. Your car breaks down and you are picked up by your new executive assistant who tells you that you have just inherited your uncle's wealth and business's. Sarah is the assistant's name and she introduces you to your first city. You get a list of goals to improve the town. The app takes you through a tutorial. The project/goals menu is very helpful to have and use.

The game action and play is easy and fun. You start with a small town and begin developing businesses and creating commerce and watch the town start to thrive before your eyes. It is actually fun. The graphics are very good and the sound is fitting for the game. The instructions and tutorials are well done.

You have to plan the city and layout and also develop different industries to create industry and businesses to earn money.

I enjoy playing with this game but it has a little trouble responding when you tap on stuff to get to the next goal. Also you need better spacing for placeing buildings in each town. I also had a hard time figureing out how to get new buildings in the investing part and where they were while playing. Even so this game worked better on my kindle fire than it does on ipod touch 4th generation. I couldn't even get it started on it. I would have liked if it hadn't cost so much. I would have even liked it even better if it had been free.

this is the second time I have installed this game. the first time it did not load the California level 4 correctly. I emailed customer svc but got no response. will see if this time is better
UPDATE
Got a response from cust. svc. which was easy to understand and helped.
Discovered that it pays to READ all the screen info and be sure to push all the buttons.
Now I am trying to build the yacht in the SanDiego level.
This game will eat your battery. If you are planning to travel don't forget your charger.

The directions could be a little more clear on this game, but it is still a lot of fun once you figure out how to do certain things. You actually build a city and there are several screens as you move on. If you are looking for something a little different than most of the other games give this a try. The graphics are great too!

The game does offer enough variety to keep you interested but the $5 price tag is a bit steep for the repetitive nature of most of the gameplay. I bought the game on sale for $0.99 which is a great deal for a simple but intriguing Sim style game.

A fun little city simulator where you start by hiring trucks to run products back and forth. Eventually you're able to to buy production facilities, entertainment centers, and houses. Theres objective based missions with scores and a freeplay mode that allows for anything to go.

I had this on pc and recently seen it for cheap on amazon so I decided to purchase it. the new touch controls for everything play very smooth and it works great. Haven't had any issues with it.

This is a fungame. I wish that more states were included and that you could turn off the tutorial (which is great for a beginner) but gets aggravating when you are just trying to build and design after you have met all the requirements.
