Ever been interested in civil engineering? Or do you want digital platform for honing your town-planning impulses? If yes, then welcome to SimCity, renowned mobile game developers EA’s latest offering in the market. A slight deviation from its celebrated classic series, this one’s a franchise with freemium credentials. For free-to-play lovers like me, it’s a great opening. I found that the key is find the ideal design and make the layout, conceptualize a proper plan and channelize the same in accordance with the demands and needs of the city’s populace. It isn’t a cakewalk to do with alongside boosting both income and my population ratio on a simultaneous basis. But the game-play makes it worth going for.
With fun components of the game remaining intact by the catchy yet subtle strategy components, the game thrives on its feel good appeal, which is a ubiquitous feature. I think it’s ever-present across all the versions from this famous series. As regards the game’s port, it comes a superb news that SimCity has retained a host of more gripping and challenging properties from their original PC version. The game manages to retain the much-loved real-world wants, needs and desires. This factor has an impact on property rates, which invariably contributes to the tax schemes.
If you dump your structures to a polluting and poorly maintained garage or factory, there’ll be new people striving to live there. It’s quite similar to what you see in the real estate market and the buying and settlement patterns of people. I think that the operational part is the same. The easy scope and bandwidth to space your urban buildings, however leads to certain problems. Residential units and commercial buildings want a simpler access to public service utilities like fire stations, schools and hospitals. It was a delight to essay the role of an urban development guy while placing these structures in consonance with the civic guidelines. I am the master of my town-planning, the boss of my business and answerable to none except the demands of the population. This is what makes matters more interesting for me.
As you progress to higher levels in the game, you can find shops where you’ve got to engage with burgeoning strata of the city. The stores generate items like tools and raw materials. You can also generate them for through the free, online generator provided by simcity buildit hack apk. It’s fast and needs no download.
But in the original game, as you city develops to grow and expand in time and space, you’ll need more and more of the items to upgrade the plots of lands onto the upcoming levels. As each level increases, you can obtain more tax from the people to purchase more materials. Now, this transcends beyond civil engineering. I’m not just planning and building the houses, but also generating revenue from making a tax-collection service. I’m not filling my coffers but using that money to buy more materials needed to develop the city. This means the game is a full-throttle city-building and urban development platform. Not just your building skills, your abilities as an administrator on some fronts are also put in a litmus test.
