More about SimCity BuildIt
SimCity BuildIt is a city builder game with in-app purchases. This game is a simple version of SimCity that you might have played on your computer. The aim of the SimCity BuildIt game is simple. Build your very own city, keep your Sims happy, build up your resources & trade.
You can tell that the Sims are angry about your city by the 1-star ratings and complaining that this is not SimCity. It is a kind of lowest common denominator. When you start the game you will get a feel of it being more like The Sims versus the City.
Download and Play SimCity BuildIt
The mobile version of SimCity has been toned down to fit the mobile screen with ease of play. But it does consume a lot of battery power with almost up to 10% every 30mins-1hour. So make sure that you don’t get so much hooked. The game offers freemium gameplay but with intrusive ads.
You will also get a lot of in-app purchase prompts in SimCity BuildIt. But if you can ignore these two things then you will be good to go. Houses, factories & other buildings are already built & all you’re doing is placing them on the map. There is a limited number with more unlocked as the game progresses and as your level goes up.
The overall gameplay in SimCity BuildIt is nice and smooth. You gain money by selling off your items in the global trade, or by taking offers that come up. You also earn money by collecting taxes and filling cargo ships with items. This is by far one of the slowest processes ever in a game.
As your SimCity BuildIt expands you will need to build important buildings such as sewage plants, power supply buildings, police stations, hospitals, etc. Having more facilities in your cities is the key to keeping your Sims happy and if your Sims are happy they will spend more money and dish out more taxes.
Building upgrades will need basic products, perhaps 1 or 2 items while later upgrades in SimCity BuildIt will require upwards of 7 different things. Every product you order has a timer. These range from 60 seconds to 3 hours but can always be sped up by premium currency.
