Have you ever wanted to build your own city? Not just building a city, but running its day to day affairs too. If so, then I recommend you check out SimCity BuildIt. This is a strategy-based game, created by Electronic Arts, that allows you build a city and be its mayor. You get to build residential zones, factories, roads, and other facilities required to run a city effectively.
With countless buildings and vivid, 3D-quality graphics, this is the most realistic city builder on mobile. You place buildings strategically in order to keep citizens happy and taxes flowing. Also, you get to solve real-life challenges like traffic, fires, pollution and overcrowding. The larger and more intricate your city gets, the more needs your citizens have, and it is up to you to keep them happy. Furthermore, you can take part in a Contest of Mayors against other players around the world. Complete new challenges each week and climb the ranks all the way to the Megalopolis Elite League.
SimCity BuildIt is a really addictive game. Building a city is really easy; all you need to do is select a residential building from the buildings list and place it wherever you want. However, you need to be smart in placing your buildings, as this affects the happiness of your citizens. For example, if you place a building too close to your factories, your citizens will be unhappy and move out. SimCity BuildIt is all about keeping your citizens happy, so you might want to avoid that.
The game is free to play. However, during the course of play you might need to make in-app purchases. This involves buying coins, which you must use to buy important facilities. You can also earn coins by upgrading residential buildings, selling your products on the Trade Depot, and completing shipments. However, you will almost always be required to spend those coins immediately to solve some problem, as your citizens must be kept happy at all times. As long as your citizens are happy, they will pay taxes, which gives you more coins.
SimCity BuildIt is available on Android and iOS platforms for free.
