The most no-nonsense city sim on the App Store. It’s great.
Rating this because I want to. This game is good. You wouldn’t be here if you didn’t want SimCity. Here it is.
Pocket City is amazing. That’s for sure. I love the new regions, and building on islands is so much fun. Policies are cool too. This upgrade really added to the game. But no matter what it’s great. Building cities, completing tasks, AND without the usual pay to play thing in these games. A must have for all future architects! One little thing that bothers me is that everything needs a road to have electricity because then I have to circle roads around my pretend private beach homes and act like it wouldn’t be a horrible way to live. The game’s still awesome, this is just a suggestion. Don’t let my review stop you from getting it. Maybe you just have to have a road near houses? Or maybe you can have like a power tower you can build for electricity? Just pitching a few made on the spot ideas. Super game!
This game is great. One of the reasons I like the game because It doesn’t have in app purchases AND it’s free. I would really like for policies to be available in sandbox sandbox mode though. I would give it 5 stars if policies were available in this game so DO IT RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
3 stars cause I’ve played it in the past, but it only loads a white screen IPhone 11 Pro so I know it’s not my phone, please fix I’d like to play 😕
Graphics and gameplay are solid. This city simulator comes to life at the street level, where citizens have humorous things to say. Tutorial is appropriate, not over bearing like some other sims. Thank you. Progression is well balanced. Levels rewards are spaced out at good intervals, so I dont unlock too much before I've got a good grasp of gameplay. The level system makes me think about my choices. I can't just race up in levels without good city planning. Paying upfront means better gameplay overall. Some other city simulators scale out time requirements for building construction with levels, so gamers are forced to continuously pay to play, which is a mechanic I despise. Not present in Pocket City! no microtransactions, just pure gameplay. This alone makes playing this game rewarding on a psychological level and feels like the developer really wanted to make a good experience, not just rake in dollars. The region system is thoughtful. Some, but not all, bonuses carry over. With each new city, I have to level it up, which I appreciate. Graphics are beautiful and remind me of classic city sims of the past, but with today's advances in 2d graphics, so it looks great and not immediately like some clone. I look forward to more releases from this developer. I recommend this game to fans of the genre.
This is one of the best little phone app games I have played in a long time. No in-app purchases means a complete and playable product! We need more games like this. If you enjoy city builders, this game is great. It is intuitive, guides through the UI, and has great compatibility with a touch screen. Highly recommend!
A nice call back to the classic Sim City games but with a much nicer app UI. The mechanics are simple to pick up and just play. Really hope the devs don’t move on too soon, as soo many areas for upgrades to really take this game to the next level. Newer building designs, more upgrades to buildings, new disasters, more leisure buildings (new buildings in general-clinics, military outpost) events (concerts, Olympics), new skins for zones etc
This game is awesome! I have played many of similar games (Sim City, Megapolis, etc) and while there are many similarities, you only need to pay a few dollars up front. There are NO in-app purchases! Gotta appreciate that! I’ve been playing for the last couple weeks and just got to level 99. You can clearly continue past that level and also manage multiple cities with different geographical locations. Give it a try! I’m glad I did!
I have been playing for about a month, and it is just addicting. Building just one more road, upgrading one more section. Before I know it my battery is low. No in-app purchases, no waiting for more stars/lives/ whatever. You build how you want, or bulldozer it and start over or just move it. Again just really having fun with it.
