SimCity™ 4 Deluxe Edition

By Aspyr Media, Inc.


Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


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!

Made me smile`

After having owned and played SimCity 2000, 3000, and 4, I’m quite attached to my SimCity series! I keep a PowerBook G3 around just to play SC 2000 natively. I was about to install Windows on my MBPr, but then I noticed one day SC4 is here in the app store! So, I purchased it and launched it…to find myself immersed in wonderful, original gameplay. Un-aged! It plays flawlessly on my Late 2013 MBPr 15”. It was $20 well spent! I’m so glad they brought this game into the Intel Mac world so gracefully. I haven’t noticed anything to complain about! I spend hours in this game. However, those of you who like trainers to cheat, I’m not sure you’ll have an easy time finding those for this version of SC4 on Intel Macintoshes. I haven’t tried, but it just came to mind.

Great Game Just Can’t Play :/

I love this game and when I bought it here it ran perfectly and I had no issues even with tons of mods installed but now ever since the update I haven’t been able to even play as for the past month I just click on the SC4 Icon and it doesn’t load up. They’ve had the note saying we’re working on a quick fix but its been a long time and I’m getting aggrivated. RCT3 was like this but fixed in less than a day so what the heck is going on here?

UPDATE: The game did the same thing to me again just now (Feb. 2016) and so I did what they said again, reinstall which worked except I LOST ALL CONTENT! ALL OF IT! I am outraged! I lost all my plugins and my maps (which I worked very hard on). I am extremely disapointed and this will definetly be my last purchase from Aspyr.


Works fine on 10.8.5. Old but gold! I recommend this game to anyone who is looking to kill some time. It's like a virtual garden, but with buildings. Recommend playing on medium settings for a balance of performance and aesthetics. 4/5! 1 star off because the game is not perfect, the only problem with it is it may freeze or crash at times (rare but possible), but that is why you save. It is either my mac that is the problem or the game regarding the crashing, otherwise its a satisfying purchase!
