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!

Works great on my 13-inch Macbook 2011

I’m a long time SimCity fan. I’ve been playing the 2013 version of SimCity for the past few years. Today, I decided to download SimCity 4. Here are my thoughts:

SimCity 4 offers soo much more as far as buildings, services, road structures, etc..compared to SimCity 2013
Good graphics

Very linear. You cannot create curved roads, as you can in the 2013 version.
So far that’s my only gripe.

Double Click Issue

The trackpad stopped working after two days of playing the game. Searched the forums - there isn't a fix for this. Horrible - this is an obvious known issue and nothing works. I've tried all of the solutions offered - even plugging in a USB mouse - nada. Wish I could get a refund for this game as it is unplayable.

BS!! I WANT MY 9.99 Back since it doesn’t work on my computer

I just bought this app for my new MacBook Pro and as soon as I click to open game (before game opens) I get a message “SimsCity is not optimized for your computer, this app needs to be updated by the developer to improve it’s compatibility.” Your kidding me with this. If this is the case they should have announced which computers it won’t work on in big letters. Now I have to waste my time trying to figure out how to get my money back. Ridiculous!!!!
