  • Update; Working much better!!

    By SeriousRushfan
    I recently started playing this game again and having fun! They have made improvements to the game.

    By Incite3
    I really enjoy this game however there are some things i believe many players would agree would help if were available: 1. It would be nice you are able to look at your storage items when in another city. Sometimes i am looking for several items and since we are limited on time we cannot so easily go back to our city check what we need then go back to the city to buy any other items that are convenient. 2. I am usually in a hurry especially when it comes to challenges or when there is just too many items at the store i need. Having the option of popping a random bubble in another city really close to their store would save a lot of time. 3. It would also save a lot of time if it would just go straight to the city once it loads instead of slightly rotating around for a bit before you can look around or select anything within the city. 4. It would also be very very nice if there was a way of selecting only the items you need at a time in out factories. For example: I collect 5 items from my factory i need the 5th item but i cannot receive it unless i sell or use something in order to get the 5th item because i only have space for 4 more items when i could maybe for example hold the factory to move, or bulldoze, double tap to collect all items at the same time and tap it once to select the items i need first. I believe many players would agree if these features existed it would make the game more enjoyable!
  • My other apps with in store purchases

    By ValARGHeeeee
    DONT REQUIRE me to update my billing information. I just tried to get the update but I don't have my card with me so I can't update but I can with another game that has in app purchases, a game I actually do spend money on but I don't with this one, yet can't update. I've spent almost 3 years on my city but since I'm a casual user who maybe plays 2 times a week I think I'm about ready to get rid of my city if I have to update billing info every time. Just shows you're more concerned with in app purchases than casual users who have invested years of their life into the game. At least with the game I do purchase money on, it's rolling out with a new game tomorrow so I will yet again have less time for what has constantly turned out to be ,with every new update to be less casual user friendly, and more into a must spend daily or hourly time on it. Will be spending my time elsewhere. Not interested in competing with anyone but myself and now it's hard to find valuable resources without actively participating in a group because none are ever available on the marketplace, even in my low level feeder city. So go ahead and keep in the direction you're going, I've already spent over $500 on a game that lets me play when I want and at my own pace, so it's money you could have gotten without all these participate now schemes.
  • Cash Grab

    By Cchhrriiss443
    Sure, it's decent for a while, then comes the wait or spend money. A lot of it. Here's an idea- if you want to play a better game that's more cost effective than pumping real money into this... Go buy a decent PC. Install steam. Purchase cities skylines and the DLCs, it's on sale all the time. Even if it's not on sale it's still a great price. You'll wind up with an experience that 1000x better, and for less real money'
  • Update where?

    By TEricka0110
    I didn't have my phone for a few days and now I'm trying to get to my city but it keeps saying "this version of the game is. I longer available". I go to the App Store but there is no update. What's going on?
  • Game is sketchy

    By Needstoomuchmoney
    It was fun at first but Unless you want to keep dumping big money into it's not worth the memory it takes up on your phone. I've contacted game manufacturer several times about glitches in the game and if I'm lucky they email me back. The glitches remain. Your coin count will hardly ever increase as you will not get credit for upgrading building. If you purchase Sim Cash be careful, a couple times I didn't receive it and once it wiped my account clear. Lost lots of sim cash then.
  • Looks fun

    By Ozerion
    Clearly this is not the SimCity of old days, and clearly the Sim franchise is trying to make money by bleeding its players... beyond that it does look like a fun game. Too bad all I get is a server error when trying to play.
  • Game is Ok but forces update

    By ANR107
    Forces you to update it or you can't play, wouldn't recommend
  • It's ok but expensive

    By Roberto923
    Like many on these boards, I enjoyed the game more when it wasn't so competitive. The visuals are nice and it is easy to play but if you expect to get any of the special items be ready to spend lots of cash, which even then probably won't get you anything and will be a waste of your time, which is then supposed to increase your desire to spend more to beat the system, but you can't and it will just keep taking more of your money. PS if you hit the metropolis league, drop back down to megalopolis, you will have better chances.
  • Time waster

    By chi-town dad
    The graphics are better than older SimCity games. The prices for items change to be more expensive the longer you play. This is an attempt to get you to play longer. Sometimes tapping the "watch ad" button shows no ad, for 2 or 3 cycles. Wish there was an offline mode. This app taps the gambling tendency for some people with the tease for items you need in the ad watch window. The system limits what you see in the marketplace showing fewer items you need, per the user. Game play is really slow unless you fork out real money.
