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!

Ratings and Reviews
Re - Review
I would like to rewrite my review and as I am a short fused touchy individual who can at times be snappy! I have enjoyed Sim City4, and have found on the MacBook Pro laptop that I can in fact enjoy playing Sim City4. After initial problems on the download due to the need to re boot the router. I have played many happy hours of Sim City 4 without hitch. Take care of yourselves.
Developer Response ,
Sorry to see you are having issues with SimCity 4 DE.
Make sure your Mac meets the minimum system requirements to play the game. We see a lot of issues on machines that are not powerful enough to run the game.
If you meet all system requirements, please contact our support site so we can look into this issue.
I downloaded this game and paid twenty pounds for it - which is a lot. It clearly said sims 4 when i downloaded it but i opened it and was horrfied when i realised that they had actually given me a rip off of sims 3!! All i had was a green piece of land - no controls- no nothing - it wasnt even a game. i just wasted twenty pounds which i had saved up my pocket money for and was so excited to buy and play.
Works perfectly on my 2016 MacBook
Good SimCity game, expands on the original well.
With regards to system requirements, I’m running the game on a 2016 MacBook, and can set everything to the highest level without any problems.
