Sim City is Fun

I enjoy it very much. I like the new animations. The mayors' club helps with getting items I need. My fellow club members sometimes have the items I can't seem to find on the market. It is a super game. I am an avid player. However I'm near the end of the game now. I still have some construction and I still compete in the mayors competitions for speed up tokens, keys and simoleons. I have more road construction ahead to upgrade most roads to streetcar roads. I notice that my street cars won't cross the street to another street car road or go around the bend unless all roads in an intersection are streetcar roads. I would like this fixed. Some 2 lane roads going over bridges will never be upgraded. They have to match the bridge and are too short anyway. I want the streetcars on those intersections to work properly. My maglev cars and infrastructure in my omega blocks do work properly. I just want the streetcar intersections to support rails and interconnectivity the same way. Please help. Also is it possible to grow the city limits more? I realize city size is probably a trade off among several things like average user memory space, number of users on at any given time, and server memory space for object caching of off screen, but frequently viewed objects. Please look into this. I love the game. I have built a beautiful, varied and very charming wealthy city with 100% sim happiness. 😀

Fun gameplay, but heavy on pay-to-play and timer-based

This game builds on older generations of SimCity, and you get to lay out your own city and tweak it the way you like it. It is pretty, the graphics are good, the touch controls are not bad.

The only downside is that this is a pay-to-play app, meaning once you run out of cash or resources you are going to have to wait a while, or pay some money for some resources that run out all too quickly. I find myself repeatedly coming back to the app and checking on my times, or harvesting materials. It's tempting to keep throwing money at the game, and you will wind up paying a LOT for this game in the long run. Watch your wallet! And most aspects of it will have an option to pay. In fact, you won't have a good time unless you pay to unlock a lot of features. This game isn't actually "free." And the new Omega expansions are a cynical way of squeezing even more money out of players.

Also, the app is clearly designed for iPad. Even though the iPhone 6 and above has a large screen, the graphics are still scaled down from the iPad screen, meaning a lot of blank space and being forced to squint to read tiny menu text. This could be easily solved by Maxis enlarging the graphics to fit the screen.


Love this game... About a month strong playing and already have 900k in people... Taxes could be a little higher since I do have 900k population and only recieve 21k in taxes everyday... The new additions though are outstanding already bought parks and entertainment and how we can also get platinum keys while doing the mayors contest now is awesome... Please make it so when we visit other cities I can add them as friends, I'm relying on google friends and my friends don't play this game so I only have one friend... Also considering basketball courts, rowing dock take 250 cash or more we should get more cash these things such as the manors are 1000 cash I already wrote that off as I won't be getting it lol and we should be able to gift personally everyone in our members group instead of having to wait back and forth... also when entering the higher tier mayor contest levels, it's hard and should do 1-30 again and split it up like lower tiers.. I find it impossible to get to first and I have a excellent city...
