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!

Works well on Macbook Pro 2010 on El Capitan
Sim City 4 still remains one of my favorite games and is the only game on this ancient Mac of mine. I was concerned that it wouldn’t work with a recent OS X like El Capitan, but so far, it works almost flawlessly. Sounds and animation works without any delays. The ONLY hiccup is that the game will randomly crash and go back to desktop if I play on it too long. So I’ve learned to save my game often. The crash probably happens over an hour or two of continuous play. Otherwise, it works great, I really have no complaints about making the game work. I’ve replaced my RAM to 8GB instead of the original 4GB, and upgraded my drive to SSD, so it may have helped with the stability of the game. My fans run hot often due to my video card probably burning up a storm, I’m surprised it has survived this long! Overall, great game and still works in 2016!
