5 star for price reduction

I love this game. I play it literally everyday. Always liked the sims, now being able to build a sim city on mobile is amazing. I like the realistic of the gameplay by needing power, trash services, police etc... But, i do have some opinions on how to max the fun out of playing it. Like the cost for services and stores. Easiest way to make money is to upgrade houses which you can only go so far with by buying police stations or fire departments. There coverage only goes so far and you cant gain more money by upgrading building because you cant afford it because you cant upgrade the buildings with out having protection from crime or fire. So im thinking expand the coverage for smaller necessity buildings or lower the price for the upgraded ones that have more coverage. Also allow better ways to make money with larger pay out rewards. Upgrading a building to a skyscraper shouldnt just give me 817 simoleons. Just saying love the game but i think the ways to make money or price and coverage of buildings could show a little mercy

Great long term game

I love this game and have never spent a cent. I'm at level 40 currently and the game keeps progressing with new challenges. Strategy is ever evolving for me as I learn to make things most efficiently for the mayors challenges. Watching your city grow is the most fun part for sure I find. I also enjoy the design challenges and creativity the game offers.
The game can certainly get frustrating at times, but that is where the rewarding feeling comes from once the goal is achieved. Expanding land is an example of this, because certain ingredients are always not around encouraging you to buy cash in the game for serious time savings. If you wait the items always eventually show up, but it will often take weeks to expand one land section at the level I'm currently at. Like I said, great long term game! If your in a rush, you can always pay....

Interesting game (or I'm easily amused)

Update: this latest update has jumped on the AIDS bandwagon. The truth about treating and preventing AIDS is twofold: 1) There are MANY more avenues of attack (for treating and curing AIDS) which are MUCH MORE efficacious than this "Red Campaign"
(in video games), and 2) the OBVIOUS TRUTH concerning DRASTICALLY reducing the spread of AIDS is to spread the following message: AVOID PREMARITAL AND EXTRA-MARITAL SEX!!! Sadly, we live in a culture which REFUSES to learn the truth that "Actions Have Consequences." Until we as a people collectively learn this truth and alter our behaviors, AIDS will continue to run amok.

All in all, a good game:
• I like the basic game mechanics, like not having to spend real money (I don't mind a slower paced game), like watching videos to gain a choice of 3 gift boxes (though wish boxes rewarded me with things I'm short on, not things I have in abundance).
• I don't have much use for simcash, simoleons and golden keys (not sure of their "best use," so I just hoard them).
• I DO like resource management games (which this is).
• I don't have much use for aspects of this game above the basics (wish there were tutorials about advanced aspects of the game).

A good game - do a better job of explaining and "opening up" the advanced aspects of the game and I'd probably give it the 5th star.
