OverviewOverview

You build your own living breathing city by creating residential, commercial, and industrial zones, as well as placing special buildings. In addition to this Sim City style play you earn points to upgrade by competing missions.

The key is planning and careful strategy so the zones meet demand. You can use charts to show the demand of each zone type. A good balance creates a good economy, increasing the player’s income. A high income allows the player to build more and expand to new areas. Power and water resources must be supplied to zones and buildings. Different power plants have different effects - some are more green than others, some are more powerful.

It’s calming and moreish in equal measure. Just one more tweak or new residential zone will make all the difference. Enjoy seeing your hard won plans come to fruition. Or not.
