What's New in Version 1.0.1
GAME UPDATE NOW AVAILABLE – Improvements, additions, and optimizations include RETINA DISPLAY SUPPORT for a maximized visual experience on iPhone® 4 and iPod touch® (4th generation).
Great game, Except for a few major issues
I used to play Sim City all the time back in the day. This version is just as fun as I remember, but some major issues need to be fixed before I would recommend this app.
First of all, lack of an autosave feature is extremely frustrating. Nothing is worse than spending half an hour on your city and losing all that work.
Secondly, the help feature is not very helpful. It needs to be much more detailed. I had to learn by experimentation how far away land can be from a road for people to build on it. I would have thought that information would be in the help folder. It would also be helpful to know what year the different buildings become available. I've been waiting to build a bus station for ages.
The most important issue that needs to be fixed ASAP is the constant crashes. Ever since the update, I can't play for more than ten minutes without the game crashing. Sure, retina display support may look nice, but it's useless if you can't even play the game.
If this issues get resolved, I would happily give this game 5 stars.
The game itself is fun and all, but it seems to have some kind of hard limit score it crashes or sometimes freezes, losing everything. Please maybe add an autosave feature to the next update?
The newest version keeps crashing
