Play involves managing your resources to construct buildings, infrastructure and zones with various functions. Since there is no money in Urbek City Builder, everything that you place requires a steady flow of resources to keep running. You start by setting up simple roads and domestic districts with farms to supply them, but quickly develop industry, civic buildings, leisure locations and more.
It seems simple, but part of the challenge is planning ahead of time. Many buildings have an area of influence around them that they provide a bonus or penalty, so it's important to think about where they should go in order to get the most out of them. For example, placing housing near an industrial area's radius of effect pollutes your housing. Part of the game's charm is in the way that houses are influenced by their environment and available services, which changes their appearance and features. In this way, you can construct whatever kind of neighbourhoods you'd like by building a matching area around them.
Urbek City Builder offers a resource-centric take on the classic city-builder games like the Sim City games and Cities: Skylines. Your imagination can run free to create any kind of city you want, provided you can balance the environmental and socio-economic costs.
7+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Younger players may find aspects of the game challenging, such as policies or working out how to get buildings to work they way they want them to. But with the occasional helping hand from a parent, players should be able to get past most logistical problems.
