“Sim City Build It” for mobile platforms is junk. Ain’t worth a shit.
The game is nothing like the Sim City you remember. Apple desperately wants me to type Sim Coty, too. You place residential zones but must grow them yourself by making vegetables, wood, screws or other items that progressively take more time to manufacture. Some items are combinations of other items! And some are combinations of those.
The problem becomes quickly evident. You advance so far and then it is impossibly slow to go any further, because you have to craft so much to upgrade your buildings. Or you can use the Trade Depot. Endlessly refresh pages without options to search for what you want, needlessly eating up server bandwidth due to laziness found only in an EA studio. My definition of fun.
As you level up with experience, you are given new problems for your city to handle. You’ll go from having a 99% happy city to people moving out, instantly, because at level xx, you need a police station or a fire station. Losing all your tenants because you don’t have something you didn’t three seconds ago is stupid.
You think that is stunning? Let me introduce you to something…
I can’t write anything else about the game because there isn’t anything to do. You can do stupid cargo missions to earn keys and make schools or bus depots but they’re just another building that does little to inspire you.
Immensely boring, huge reliance on premium purchasing which I wouldn’t do for jack, and no interesting things to do after a few upgrades happen.
