The classic city simulation game returns to the Mac!

In SimCity™ 4, you don’t just build your city; you breathe life into it. Sculpt mountains, dig riverbeds, and seed forests as you lay the groundwork for your creation. Then, use your god-like powers to construct the most realistic metropolis you can imagine.

Whether you want to build mansions on mountainsides or cross canyons with bridges, the impact of your decisions is immediate. But while each click of the mouse can create, it has equal capacity to destroy. Capping an erupting volcano might save your city, or it might reroute lava down busy city streets. Sending police to quell a riot might calm down the crowd, or it might spur even further anarchy. With every decision you make, your city and your Sims will respond – for better or for worse. It’s up to you to be their guide.

The SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition includes both SimCity 4 and the Rush Hour expansion pack, which gives you more control over your city’s transportation options, plus two bonus disasters: UFO attack and Autosaurus Wrecks.

We even included the exclusive Mac “Custom Tunes” feature that allows your iTunes library to be played in the game!

Customer Reviews


everytime I go to open the app it crashes and iv’e send numerous reports to apple on it and it still isn’t resolved, I hope that I am not the only one having this issue because i new think I just threw $19.99 away, Please get in touch with apple and fix this issue.

Excellent version

This seemed to come out of absolutely nowhere, but I can't recommend it any more if you have any interest in the series. A fantastic facelift! Makes the whole experience feel fresh. Though I do actually enjoy Sim City 2013, the lack of widescreen native resolution support on 27" iMac's in that version make it very easy to recommend this version over it. Beautiful port.

Good Game, Great Port

If you enjoyed Sim City 2000 or earlier, or even SC3000, you’ll enjoy Sim City 4. It looks, feels and behaves similar, only in much better ways. More buildings, more features, more disaster options and more going on in the city if you zoom in close enough. I’m running it on a Mid 2012 MacBook Pro (15-inch) running Mavericks with the NVIDIA Geforce 650M at 1920-by-1200 pixel resolution and it runs as smooth as butter so far on high details, minus shadows. A very well done port by Aspyr. A true classic.
