Customer Reviews

This game is great!!!

I love this game for many reasons... For one, it is available when you are offline. The trucks and cars actually go to a place where they are supposed to go, unlike other games where the vehicles/citizens walk to random destinations. It does not require diamonds that you have to buy to continue to play. Most games say that they are free to play, but in order to unlock something else you need to use diamonds. You still need diamonds to do some things but it is very easy to earn the ones you need.

Pay to Play

I suspect most of the favorable reviews were uploaded by people who just recently began playing the encourages you to rate the game for diamonds before you have progressed very far. After you have upgraded all the production buildings and expanded 2-3 times, you will hit the point where you need diamonds for just about everything. You will either have to buy them or advance at a snail's pace because you only earn a few every 5 days. Other than logging on for the daily reward I only play a few minutes every 5 days now (if I have enough diamonds). I would not recommend this app.

Very fun game.

I like this game, you have to think on what you want to do and how to accomplish it. The only thing that kind of takes away from the game for me is the cost of buying new land sections. I would have thought that it would cost so much to expand. Trying to get my city to flow right need areas to work from. Having to wait for enough money to 1) buy a new land section and 2) still having enough money to do the things I need to. All in all a very fun game.
