|(games)||SimCity - Maxis Software's simulation game which lets you
design and build your own city, which must be administered
well if it is to thrive. Land must be zoned, transportation
systems built, and police and fire protection provided. Once
you've zoned some land, and provided electrical power, the
simulation takes over, and simcitizens move in. If you
perform your mayoral duties poorly, however, they will move
out again. If you don't provide enough police, crime will
rise and sims will vote with their feet. Try to save money on
fire protection, and your city may burn to the ground. There
is no predefined way to win the game, building the largest
city you can is just one possible strategy.|
SimCity runs on Archimedes, Amiga, Atari ST, IBM PC and Macintosh. There was also a NeWS version for Sun SPARC workstations running OpenWindows.
SimCity 2000 is an upgrade of SimCity.
