An instant favorite❣️

Update: it satisfies both my need for strategic, as well tactical scenario problem solving without shooting, cutting nor blowing anything up. The depth of the sim initially escaped me. It would be nice if you could make a copy of your scenario so you could experiment with what if scenarios without having to start over each time.

I simply cannot, not play, Project Highrise❣️ lol
Sim City but for a highrise building. I like it better than Sim City as it can be overwhelming at time so I never play it. Decent tutorials, good graphics, well thought out user interface (I would like it if you could hide the menus to examine your building in an unobstructed view. And to add color (and half color) to menu icons that are not yet available or only partially available, respectively. That way you don’t waste time opening a menu item only to see that nothing is available yet. This sim will likely stay on my home screen for quite a while!

Sim Tower Spiritual Successor

This is an in depth simulation of building and running the finer details of a high rise (or low rise) tower. This takes me back to the days of SimTower 👍 when you could build to the sky! This game goes a bit beyond that though. It provides you with the ability to “choose” tenants to a limited degree, and choosing utility availability. Much more management along the lines of upkeep.

Why four star? I still think that the in-app purchases are a bit steep. The base game comes with too few decorations etc. I think the content packs should be bundled at about half price. Then have the three expansions. Right now there are 8 content packs at $0.99 each, and 3 expansions at $2.99 each. That would make the game $22-$23 for everything. Ideally for a mobile game I think it should be more in the range of $15-$18.

A great game, very playable at the base price and loads of fun. A simulation star on the rise, with this A+ port.

Text is too small

I just bought this game and am working through the tutorials. So far it seems interesting with lots to do and the graphics are nice. That being said the text is too small, and I’m on an iPad even. I don’t understand why they wouldn’t make the text large enough to read easily. It’s making learning to play somewhat difficult for me. If they’d fix that I could move in to really review the game better but right now I’m having to go slow and squint a lot. I don’t have this issue with most other games. Thanx kindly for any consideration on this. Also I could say that the menu icons could probably be more interesting to increase instant recognition for each button. They all sort of look blah and similar. Hope I can get the hang of this soon so I can really enjoy playing. I love games like this and imma little disappointed to be hindered by the text size. My glasses are fairly new XD
