Great Game - This is an awsome game that everyone should play! I would recomend this game to anyone who asks me if this game is fun or not. This game is a great way for learning how a city is run and managed at the same time, so this game is both fun and educational. If anyone is looking for a game that can help them learn how a city is ran and managed, this game will be for them.

Review by Runningwith2

Good to start, gets frustrating! - The game was fun in the beginning but after some time it has gotten frustrating. Everytime I leave my city for even ten minutes, I come back to find it burnt to the ground. It takes so much energy to restore the buildings, that I run out. While waiting for the energy to restore, my city burns to the ground again. It is ridiculous. Fix this!

THE CHANGE!!! - I always loved to change my city by just paying coins to remove a building. But in the update, you now have to pay gems to remove a building! I do not have many gems. And i need to remove buildings in order to get gems. All i want is in the next update to change it back to coins instead of gems. Other than that, i think the game is great. So please change it back. If you change it back, i am sure many people would agree and will be happy. Because my city is out of room and i can not place any more buildings down. ;)

Review by nix6891

Nik - Game is good with proper construction for a sim game. However needs better assistance for new players. And also needs to get rid of greedy requirement of those blue gems for small things. I ain’t gonna buy those so fogettaboutit! I also did not like why you have to spend 1 energy when you want to move buildings.

Review by the-kaname-sama

good game but could use some improvements - its a good game but the social network quests are annoying especially when you dont use some of the social networks. I enjoy the game but it needs to offer an easier way of reseting the game if you get stuck. also make gems easier to obtain, i will never pay cash to advance in a game, and make the energy bar refill faster i dont like playing for 5 minutes then have to wait 40 mins before i can do anything else due to the really slow refill. make the refil about 30sec. for while game is open and then the 2 minutes while away from game

Review by wenpa

Fun but can become expensive to play - I like this game a lot, it is the only game that has caught me to become addicted. I played it years ago, then stopped due to life changes, then now got the time again to play, I was very happy to play it again, but now it wasn’t like I remember it. I started to figure out that now, in order to expand and evolve in the game you have to pay money to buy those diamonds, diamonds is really what you need to advance in the game. You earn diamonds here and there but maybe just a few, this is not enought to do the things you have to do to grow the city, to take real steps to grow your city you need diamonds, and a lot of them, and you have to pay cash for them, over and over and over and over and over…. at the end you can be easily paying a couple $100 or more to play this game to its limits. I stopped at $7 … I think I’ll keep looking for other games to play that don't need to make me spend money carelessly. Oh! and one more problem, unistalling doesn’t erase your old city’s data. I tried many tricks to start over with a new tactic for my city but the game doesn’t let you reset. - Boring.
