Game play is much like the big-screen version, with a simpler interface and easy-to-scan meters telling players exactly how their towns are faring. Each game is completely different from the last--can you build the greatest city on earth?

The graphics and gameplay are very much like the original PC version of Sim City 2000.
Even some of the game flaws are the same (with it not letting you build where a power line is already -- instead you have to do power lines last. This inconvenience was corrected in later PC versions).
As others stated, if you only have green or blue squares -- it is not the game -- it is YOU not reading the directions and/or playing correctly.
Power may not be hooked up... it may still be on pause... etc.
This game is exactly what I hoped it would be. And exactly what I would expect from a game console I can put in my pocket.
If you want more graphics and power -- you shouldn't be using a GameBoy Advance (which is, basically, a teeny Super Nintendo).
The game also got slow when a monster attacked it, and sometimes has a few other problems such as police stations becoming invisible and train and bus stations not having any passengers riding on it (Is this just me or do other people have this problem??)
Nice graphics, fairly easy controls, lots of features (like disasters) can be turned on/off individually or or all turned on/off. Construction is easy, and described well in the instructions.
Eye strain (headache) from the dark screen (you need pretty good light for this one.) No cars driving around, no people in the stadium, or a train running around town. When you're zoomed out far enough to see the whole city, there is very little detail. When zoomed in to see the streets and buildings, it's a pain to scroll all over the place to see other parts of the city. (Guess you can only do so much with a portable.)
I find the game to get a little boring after awhile, but I felt the same way about the PC version. The instructions could offer more advice about running the city. Even though I'm not a "Sim-Head" I find it interesting enough to recommend. This would be a great buy if you love Sim City.
