Ok so..


This game is alright and has a lot of potential but..it has quite a few bugs and glitches. I think you guys have a lot of work to do before it can be "app stores #1" or whatever..maybe incorporate some type of in app purchase thing then you'll see revenue for your hard work and be able to improve it beyond just a hobby or so...I'd like to be able to start from places like my city in America.. even though this is an Australian app..this may just be for older devices but when I start to have a lot of proposals the game starts to go super slow and my proposals disappear and reappear despite having like 7 months to decide..same thing with the structures in my town. I kno they aren't actually gone it just seems like the menu slid it's self all the way over and they're just out of view..also there are a bunch of old people in my town yet when I make decisions that benefit them I lose popularity and my happiness rating goes down pretty fast..I feel this should focus more on the playability than actual statistics..please improve it and I'll leave a better review..



Amazing game! This is a great game and you don't have to worry about all the ads or in app purchases! HOWEVER it crashes all the time and the proposals start to repeat itself!!!!

Fun but a little easy


It's chill and easy to master but fun on a train ride.
