Cute but lacks depth

Tip for anyone struggling on expert: ignore the demand indicators entirely. Growth is based on the jobs percentage on the stats screen. As long as you have enough jobs for 100% of your citizens you will keep making money, provided your taxes are not set too low.

Pocket City is fun for a few days but once you get the hang of it there is nothing more to do. You just sort of max out at level 100 and you’re done. Unlike most other city builders you can’t give your city an “identity” via development choices, landmarks, and other features.

Good for 2 days.

It’s good... but for the money, not worth it at all. Maxed out the city already and now I’m bored of it and the more difficult options are too much work.

A game worth the cost

Here’s the deal, this game (as of right now) is $3.99. You’ve gotta ask yourself, what does the world have to offer you for $3.99? A coffee? A gallon of gas? Half a lunch? For $3.99 I don’t expect to much, but this game delivers more than I’d expect for a small amount of money. Will you find yourself playing this for weeks on end? Probably not. Will you never get bored of this game? You probably will.

But, for at least a few days, this game keeps you engaged and wanting more and more. I played for hours and hours day one followed by an hour or so everyday for the first week. Now I just check in and do this and that as for the most part I’ve “beat” the game.

This game doesn’t ask you to spend more money via micro transactions time and time again. For $3.99 it gives you everything it’s got. If you’re flipping through these reviews over and over again trying to decide if this is worth the $3.99 they are asking for like I did before finally pulling the trigger.

Go ahead and do yourself a favor, stop wasting your time thinking about it and buy it. It’s worth it.
