Great app

This is such a fun game. I don’t want to bother with telling you all the things you’re doing right I’m sure someone else did that. Instead, here’s some tips for anyone who might be reading this: you get the really big and tall skyscrapers from getting luxury lots, and once a building is already a smaller skyscraper but fully upgraded it can’t get to the big ones you have to start from scratch. I hope that made sense. Also, to get luxury lots, get beaches or education. And if you need a lot of coins, either upgrade buildings or just wait and you’ll get it in taxes. And make sure you have police and healthcare and firemen, or your building will be abandoned. Sorry this is long. Also, a smart layout for your city is to have all stores and factories as far RIGHT as you can, and have the biggest buildings close to mountains and the beach. Those will make them luxury. But the right does nothing. You need the left because that’s you entrance. Also, get tons of parks. Last tip, if you want free supplies, just click on global trade and click on a random thing, then once you’re in the other city, click out of their trade and look around the city until you see a little blue present in a thought box. Click on it, and BAM! Free supplies. Ok I’m done now.

Great game a first, but is getting silly

When I first started playing it was great. Building and growing my city was fun and simple. Then as you grow things become a little more difficult. Which in gaming is typical. But things are just getting out of hand. It's almost impossible to expand territory when you can't ever get the dozer parts. I have a thousand exhaust and wheels but no dozer blades. To launch disasters I have a thousand gloves and batteries but only one controller. The omega homes and store are just ridiculous. It's almost impossible to upgrade the homes. The omega labs produce the same useless stuff that my factories make but now they cost me my in game money. How about this, omega labs produce omega items only. The omega mall is completely dumb. It should only sell omega items. I know the game was free but the cost of things to buy with real money is disgusting. This game can cost you the same price of an Xbox or PlayStation game after you buy a few items for it. At least with them you get more for your money. And the mayors challenges and rewards for the challenges have become pathetic and annoying. Just to stay in the prize zone I have to practically play this game nonstop and spend a lot of hard earned real money. It also seems like things will just go missing from your city storage. The market place is over flooded with the same items in every city. You try to buy something and it says “oops”. EVERYTIME I try to buy something from the market...

Awesome job, EA! Love it! 😁

I have been playing this game and controlling my city since I was 9. (I'm 11 now) All of this time, it's an awesome game. It's super realistic, and it's just like the simcity on my PC! Here's some suggestions to make this amazing game even better: On the starter 2-lane road with grass on the side, why not make a driveway in the grass for the buildings and homes on that road, instead of making cars drive over the grass to the parking lot. When players start the game, why not let them build more road instead of making them draw a small line road? That way, I can have a different road for the industrial and dirty buildings, instead of making it on the same road as sims houses. 1 more thing: you should make some of the cars crash in the road, so you would need to unlock a clinic and fire department to fix the accidents on the road. That's my ideas, myself. It's already an awesome game. Keep the goodness coming, EA!
