Crashed
by Cool egg!! on 2020/01/25 08:53
The new update crashes a lot! I need to restart it multiple times and it’s so annoying! Please fix this
Tedious at times
by Qwertyduge on 2020/01/25 05:41
Good time passer. Nice that you can choose to play on your own or not. A search or filter for the trade market is greatly needed though.
So many ads now
by jfjirnriskgkwitbbske on 2020/01/25 04:48
So many ads now. You can't exit the ads either. I won't be playing this game anymore. If there was a paid version, I'd play that over a forced ad version.
Wouldn’t recommend. Currency is too hard to earn
by crax90 on 2020/01/25 00:35
Been playing for almost a week and it’s become apparent the only way to really advance your city is to pay. I don’t mean buying a starter pack and that’ll get you to be self sustainable. Currency is so expensive, the only way to make decent money for upgrades is to upgrade houses but then you need to keep buying utilities buildings so I’m stuck in a cycle I can’t really shake out of. I wonder if the devs played this game without using their premium currency, I doubt it. It is nice that buildings don’t take time to finish but if you never have enough coins, what’s the point. I think I’m done with this game. Would not recommend it unless you have $100s to throw at it or you don’t mind not progressing at all.
Why
by me738463 on 2020/01/25 00:29
Good game but takes 5 to 10 minutes to load with fast WiFi and won’t usually with cell service 😡very disappointing
Constant Game Crashing
by Corsicanrose on 2020/01/24 23:47
Please do something about the game constantly crashing/freezing since recent updates. iPhone XSMax user here. Tired of having restart phone to play. This isn’t an isolated error. Others are experiencing this a great deal. Check the social media forums.
Fun game but...
by KoopaSlayer92 on 2020/01/24 19:45
The game is a lot of fun but every 5 to 10 mins you are hit with a forced ad that tells you that you can exit the ad at anytime but when I do press to close the ad it still forces me to watch it. I would gladly click and watch ads that specifically rush items being made and stuff but forcing ads on someone while they are playing the game regularly is very annoying. I would consider buying packs on this game but not if it doesn’t take away the forced ads.
Pay to win
by RobotGoodness on 2020/01/24 14:38
Why would I play this? It’s pay to win. It looks great but no way am I sinking cash into this.
Sandbox please!
by bbbass6 on 2020/01/24 05:12
All I request is sandbox, Other than that this a amazing game! Also there’s a up side to sandbox more videos on YouTube for more downloads.
Poor programming
by Insanesupra on 2020/01/24 02:01
Freezes. Makes iPhone and iPad to run hot.
Crashing on current gen iPhone, EA paywall
by Foxof333 on 2020/01/24 01:46
Could be great if it didn’t crash when visiting other cities. A lot. Certain features are blatant cash grabs. Events are poorly designed, more about milking purchases. Another awesome franchise victim to EA punishing its players
Crashing

App keeps FREEZING!!
by F a i l on 2020/01/23 17:08
I have gone through 2app updates and the performance of the app has deminished with each update. App will constantly freeze when I move around within a city, or when I move to another region, when someone club chats, during war, etc. please look into the performance!!! I am using iPhone and annoying when I have to constantly shut down the app and reopen. Sometime I do this 5-10 times within 10min span!

App crashes
by Spsxl on 2020/01/23 13:18
Not entirely sure how to get information to you guys about this issue but I have an iPhone 11pro. Have been playing SimCity Buildit for a few months now and have had no problems. Now after this recent update, I haven’t been able to play for longer than 5 minutes. The app continues to freeze and sometimes as soon as I open the game it will freeze. Other than this issue, I love the entertainment and some of the new changes. Keep it coming.
My favorite game....disappointed with recent glitches and updates
by A91184 on 2020/01/23 09:47
Since this latest update this monster has shown up. I attacked and defeated him and I am now unable to attack in club wars! We have since finished a war and started another, and I have uninstalled and reinstalled my game twice. I still can’t attack! This is a huge problem given that I am a VP and high ranking member in my club. It also stops me from completing Contest of Mayors tasks involving launching wars. The updates recently (in the past year) have been very glitchy. I have been playing this game since a few months after it launched many years ago. I am extremely frustrated this time and anxiously awaiting another update to fix glitches! Please help!!!!
Free play
by It from me on 2020/01/23 06:34
I feel like there should be free play mode like where you have infinite money or so and so but still able to have your regular city.
Developers..... please read
by Marieski Havasu on 2020/01/23 04:56
I have enjoyed this game for years with no previous issues. However, this last update has caused the game to crash. Every 2-3 minutes the entire screen will lock up. I am using IOS. Thank you.
Great game but
by Eugeeeeene on 2020/01/23 03:38
Hangs randomly every other minute. I have to kill it and start again. Just started happening recently.
Fun game, but buggy
by Guitargeek6298 on 2020/01/23 02:22
I really enjoy the game, but the constant freezing is really irritating. It's constantly freezing when I switch regions and I have to close the app and restart.
Freezes constantly
by R00M237 on 2020/01/22 23:27
Freezes after 5-10 min of play every time. App won’t even crash. I have to manually close and restart.
Game keeps crashing on iPad
by MelBelle<3 on 2020/01/22 21:44
Lately the game keeps crashing and freezing on the iPad. It’s the only app that does this.
No power
by brosif0035 on 2020/01/22 12:50
My city was doing fine but losing power capacity because more and more homes so deleted all of them and made one big now it is glitched saying no power so no water no power no garbage no sewage.
Good but not...GREAT
by Gerorge washington 1111 on 2020/01/22 12:33
This game is great and all but ever since i had it i have always wanted to re-do my city. Obviously it is not realistic, but neither is using a few pieces of iron to build a huge tower. If you have ever played or seen clash of clans, they have a feature where you can pick up and rearrange all of your buildings and decorations. Something like that would make this game much more fun to me. -Thank you
My opinion

Awesome game

I love this game but I just wish we could keep small residential buildings and not keeping updating them to skyscrapers
Something’s Changed
by LA2047 on 2020/01/22 04:47
I’ve been playing for years and have really liked this game. It’s a great way to spend time that doesn’t require constant interaction or strategy; you just play it because it’s fun. However sometime in the last couple months EA has done something to this game that has made it frustrating to play, to the point where I’m considering ending it. Here’s why: First (albeit smaller) problem: inflation. What used to take seven tokens to earn, now takes eight. What used to require four tasks to reach, now takes six. Of course if you don’t like it, there’s now the “pay real money to skip the effort” option, which feels a little like they said “let’s make the game rewards a revenue stream.” I could deal with it if the game still operated well, but to be constantly faced with requests to spend real money when things keep glitching is insulting. Second, it locks up suddenly. A LOT. It virtually never used to, now it locks up at least once every single time I play it. Often it does so multiple times until I’m so fed up I just stop playing. Third, it’s got glitches now. For example, one of the districts is one in which half is snowy and the other half is green. Buildings placed on the green side with be colorful and, well, green. Buildings placed on the snowy side will appear white like it’s winter. Suddenly they’re switched: the snowy side is full of green parks and buildings and the green side is full of snow covered buildings. Not all mind you, just several, so each side looks like a green and white checkerboard. Fourth: the icons and text has gotten soooo damned small that it’s almost impossible to read. Seriously. When completing tasks in the mayors challenge one might simply read “launch this war attack” and show a picture of the attack card. But the picture is so stinking small you can’t see what the attack is! And the text when reading anything is minuscule! You know how ridiculous it is to have to hold a magnifying glass up to your iPhone screen to be able to play the game?! Finally, the worst problem: Their help desk. Oh sure, they’re friendly and empathetic; they’re nice and tell you how much they understand. And I thank them for it. But they DO NOTHING about the problems communicated. Not even to suggest when they may fix the issues or a return email saying they’ve identified coding issues and expect to hope to have them resolved with an update in...whenever. No, you send an email and all you get back is some smarmy thing like the villain of the game must be playing tricks and that they’ve made a note and will into it, then... nothing. No update; no correction; no return word. Oh there seems to be noooooo problem with releasing updates for new season challenges in which the best rewards require real money to get, but none seem to address the coding errors that have been showing up ridiculously frequently lately. I don’t know what’s changed and I really don’t want to stop playing but I can’t see continuing playing (and often spending real cash) a game that’s become so infuriating. I’m tired of sending error reports via email because I feel like they now regard me as nothing but a complainer. So I’m hoping if more people read this and have the same problems they too can insist EA does something about it.
There’s some bugs
by L@nceeselhombre on 2020/01/22 03:54
I have this one house that has no water, power, garbage, etc despite my capacity being high enough... Overall a good game though.
Stolen Simcash???
by nightflower101 on 2020/01/22 02:20
I have yet to buy anything with my Simcash, I was looking at some buildings, when all of a sudden my simchash went from 50 to 12. I havent seen anything else change, nor did I see anything new from a store.
Fun Game
by realomegaco on 2020/01/22 01:03
Really fun game, with new buildings constantly being added.

I love this game...but randomly lose progress made. Had storage up to 395 then next week down to 385, then get it back up to 400 then next week randomly down to 390, so frustrating I’m about to quit.
LOVE THIS GAME
by bixballpark on 2020/01/21 22:50
I love this game but after the last recent updates, it keeps on freezing when I travel to different cities. I spend a lot on this game. I hope this gets fixed soon. Thank you!!!
Its ok but it need a sales
by j5cho80 on 2020/01/21 21:35
Sup everyone I’ve have been having this game almost a month I’m on level 14 on the i phone 11 and on iPad I’m on level 6 because I’ve built to much roads on it the city has 40000 people in i phone 11 and on iPad it 2053 people why there is a 2% to sell the building but it good at least

New update needs new update fast. App keeps crashing.
One problem
by money cat 37484 on 2020/01/21 00:32
I love this game but there’s one thing I hate about it.its that you need to keep on upgrading and upgrading you buildings.I want a small neighbor hood not a big city.please add a option that says like no more upgrading or stop upgrading. But anyways it’s a good game and have a good day.
AWESOME GAME!
by BHBOSS1068 on 2020/01/21 00:16
This game is amazing! The clubs and challenges are awesome! But some times developing your city can be frustrating sometimes, but otherwise, it’s a really fun game! You should get it!
Best Game Ever!!!
by Donut Girl! 🍩 on 2020/01/20 22:56
I LOVE this game, I am loving this game I literately can’t stay off of it! All in all it’s an amazing game!
Opening directions are incredibly annoying
by nonicknames11111111 on 2020/01/20 20:45
The game stops being fun after you get to into the double digit levels and/or your population over 40,000 because everything costs a lot of Simoleons to build or upgrade. It’s actually comical; the developers really think I’d put my own money down before I’d just stop playing. I don’t want to speak for most people, but when I play this, I only have a few minutes or it’s at the end of a long day. Last thing I want to do is pay some of my own money JUST to enjoy this stupid little mobile game. That in and of itself is enough to make me not want to play it anymore.
Rip off
by Mark the Candy Crush Hater on 2020/01/20 20:04
I went to the game today to find my storage had been reduced by 25!! Complete rip off! This is a money grab! Delete this dishonest game!! Stay away!
India Support Useless
by Frost271 on 2020/01/20 15:54
EAs technical support for this game is based in India. They are non responsive and don&#39;t read the tickets. The language barrier is evident and all they do is copy and past information from the FAQ. The winter update was a disaster and many cities were lost. They are not willing to help in any manner. Very sad from all the money spent. Never again EA!

by hdjdjf iffy on 2020/01/20 00:03
I find myself redownloading this app then delete it again. When it comes to the wars I find it frustrating to rebuild my buildings and upgrade my buildings within a short amount of time.
Rename this SearchCity!
by Phreekenstein on 2020/01/19 19:32
You will spend countless hours searching for items to build your city. When you don’t need an item they are plentiful. When you do need an item, can’t find one anywhere. If you are willing to spend copious amounts of real money to succeed you will do well and enjoy the game. If not, be prepared to search for hours! Good luck, I’m done!
Keeps Crashing
by Tplj1984 on 2020/01/19 16:25
For some reason, SimCity keeps crashing on my device. Every time I load in, it immediately crashes and I can’t play the game. I don’t know why this is happening but I would really like it if this could be resolved. I enjoy this game a lot and now I can’t enjoy the game because I can’t even play. Please if you could do something about this, if you could do it as soon as you can that would be great.
Shame on Apple
by Oh Daddy Oh on 2020/01/19 16:00
It is shameful that Apple gives this editor’s choice. We are averaging about 1 in 4 clubs cheating in club wars and EA does nothing!
Iffy
by CookieRobot on 2020/01/19 15:33
I loved this game before then I how do you switch phones. Then I got it again on my phone now well let’s just say one thing it’s good but it won’t let me build any roads every time I try and tap and drag it will only push me away. So I am stuck on this one thing.

Game Keep Crashing
by Knowone7 on 2020/01/19 13:23
The game use to work fine on my iPad Pro, but lately the game started crashing my iPad. I could have a full charge battery and soon as I start the game two minutes later my iPad shuts down as if the battery died. My iPad battery is fine and this only happens when I play SimCity build it. Is there a patch or something to fix the issue? The game works fine as long as my iPad is plugged up charging. However the game shouldn’t drain my iPad battery in two minutes either.
Graphics are excellent but overall gameplay is too slow
by themistokles04 on 2020/01/19 11:29
Playing for sometime now, to expand the main city is extremely difficult. At some stage gameplay will become slow, you have to reach level 25 to unlock new regions and start building in new region since the expansion of the main city is too difficult. Without purchase this game is too slow 😕😪
ugh
by Pinkchampagne8 on 2020/01/19 05:14
why do i have to load an old city when i connect game center or fb. lame. let us connect new cities to old accounts. why can&#39;t we start over? like that&#39;s so stupid and annoying. i just had to delete my new city i&#39;ve been working on for months to connect with game center so i could play with my friend. TRASH.
Facebook issue
by Elitorres814 on 2020/01/19 04:58
I played this on my old phone and I connected to Facebook just after the tutorial but when I got a new phone I played the tutorial over again. Their was no option to connect to Facebook even when I played till level 17. I couldn’t even use the trading building. So now I have to delete sims city
Designed to take your money
by YoLoRYder69 on 2020/01/19 04:58
This game is very fun in the beginning. I would love to keep playing but unfortunately I’m deleting the app because of the way it was designed. It’s made for you to fall behind and have to pay for things when it doesn’t give you enough money. The only way to continue to build is to wait, grow and sell materials over and over and over. Or resort to spending your own money for more sim cash. Like I said very fun game at first but you quickly get to a point where it gets really slow or else forces you to spend your money.
The game keeps freezing

Newest update stinks!
by ChipsMc on 2020/01/18 16:34
The newest update is a mess. The screen keeps freezing up and I’ve had to restart it over and over again. Also, I don’t care about the stupid octopus! How do I get the app to stop bugging me about it?

Love this game but...
by Iamshadae on 2020/01/18 12:46
Please update app it keeps freezing out of no where. Also give us the option to select multiple things to sale instead of one at a time for example i want to sale cement and sugar but i have to go to the sugar first put that up for sale than go back and put the cement up. I usually only sale when I’m trying to make room for other items i need and i i it have 30 seconds before it disappears.
Fun game but freezes often

by MTalbot95 on 2020/01/18 00:08
This game used to be so much fun to play! I got back into it recently, and now it’s unplayable. Why do I have to watch an ad every minute every time I click on a factory??? It’s so infuriating that good games rely on shoving ads in your face. May have to delete this at this rate.

by d039901 on 2020/01/17 19:09
Have long suspected timers ran artificially slow and now have confirmed after multiple rounds of testing that they do. A 6 minute build actually ends up taking about 6 minutes and 5 seconds. Combine that with all the other artificial manipulation they do to try and make you spend money if suggest looking elsewhere for your gaming entertainment.

Frequently hangs

I love this game but needs more stuff, and requires money to do most stuff
by ShadyKylie on 2020/01/17 00:29
I absolutely love this game very fun, but you can enjoy it fully without paying which I don’t really like, plus can you guys add a road system like SimCity 2013 and kind of make it more realistic like that, plus can we zoom in more to the road and the houses and have cheaper maxis majors and other ways to get expansion items, plus the fire stations and hospital and police is kind unrealistic cause most of the street would be covered but one house in the middle wouldn’t which is weird I think you guys should remove that feature and just let us put it not to far from the houses but not on the Same block cause in real towns you don’t have fire stations and hospitals on the same block of the houses
New iPad and can’t hear the game
by Why does it keep re-setting?😡 on 2020/01/16 20:36
Yesterday, I got an iPad mini generation 5. I’ve played this game for years and it’s been awesome building my city. The iPad mini I have though doesn’t have a ringer button, which you need to switch on to hear the game. I’ve gone back in my settings and turned on the ringer, but I still can’t hear the game.

I’ve been playing the game for about a year and enjoy it maybe too much. However, lately I have found the system freezing when I visit other cities and I must delete and reload the app, then go thru the tutorial before I can reload my game. It happens frequently.

Season IV, yassss, brainstorming ideas
by I want to support this game on 2020/01/16 06:10
Excited for season 4! And throwing out some suggestions: I like the Vu pet monster event (watching the animation and the rewards). I wish that could become a permanent thing. Maybe make it like the Vu tower (if you activate certain items, it’ll attract different kinds of monsters to the city)? You can add more Vu items to the inventory (cakes, fruits, etc.). But if you do that, please, please, please let us expand our city storage to 1000 or something. 😅🙏 And instead of just keys rewards, we can also get war items/cards/simeoleons. Love what you guys did with the water, the glossy reflection is a really nice touch. Could we have some more landscaping (bridges, topiaries, duck pond, jumping fishes) - just throwing out some ideas. Another idea I’m throwing out: another region perhaps? Rainforest or Coastal lagoon would be great regions with a lot of diversity for items/ideas. Keep the seasons coming, and I’ll keep buying passes 😁🥰👍

No progress without paying
by robbyp82! on 2020/01/15 23:02
This game is a lot of fun if you’re willing to dump A LOT of cash. The only way to get simonoles (sim cash) is to sell resources or buy it. You get dozens and hundreds of cash for selling resources but need tens of thousands to make progress. It is structured for you to be unsuccessful if you don’t pour money into it. Example: you need to upgrade your residential areas to get less than $1k. You need $25k-$50k to sustain the residential upgrades with roads, fire, police, parks etc. So for every $1k you get in upgrades you need 20x that to sustain so, you’re set up to lose under you drop cask daily/weekly. Save your time and your money. Game lets you successfully manage for a few days then changes. You could be patient and wait a few weeks to buy a necessary service but, your population would be 0 by then. Save your money...I’d rather pay $50 for the real game and test my management skills than you waste time and money I’m this money pit.
SimCity build it People.
by FeeL The Love. on 2020/01/15 22:23
There is a problem with Club Chat when i Tell the Club That i want to start a War in the Game By saying Lets Kick Butt. But instead The game says “Let’s Kick &amp;%#. “ does that seem a good idea. I just thought you guys should Know. Sincerely Meghan Mullozzi.
Hanging after last update

To advance you’ll have to spend real money
by heavenshome on 2020/01/15 22:03
I’ve been playing this app now for several days. I initially loved it but quickly became agitated from repeatedly viewing icons telling me what to purchase in order for the icons to disappear. I was attempting to collect coins to purchase a school which is $40,000. Like someone really has that many coins when first starting to play. I didn’t even get to $21,000 when more icons started popping up telling me that I needed to build police stations, waste and garbage buildings and transportation buildings. Needless to say, it is overwhelming and I’m unable to keep it going without having to spend real money so I may end up just deleting the app unfortunately
Fun game!
by killemall222 on 2020/01/15 20:02
It’s a fun game with many team-coop aspects. It would be nice to be able to see how many of an item you have when in another city’s market. It would also help to be able to disable startup &amp; vu animations.
What’s happened?
by Tatum D. on 2020/01/15 18:19
Yeaaaaa you know I’ve put countless days, weeks, months, even years into my city in this game. It used to be so cool collecting taxes, providing healthcare to people, etc. It was truly an awesome mobile city simulator. But it’s just going downhill. A lot of nonsense has been added like the disasters and the hero stuff, and now a killer octopus? No. I put this game down with great sorrow after it’s been a big part of my life, and hope someday another city sim will come without a bunch of dumb childish add add-ons.
Continuous Crashing
by dewin it on 2020/01/15 16:08
I love this game, but for the last 2 months, maybe longer is crashes all the time. Today I can’t even play because of it. I can go to my regions, it shows it’s loading and then does nothing. I close it and start over, same thing happens. Please fix it

Forget It
by Monstevr on 2020/01/14 19:05
I did the math and the way the new Mayors’ Pass is set up (every couple tiers, the tier costs thousands more points to clear), I will have neither time nor money to finish it, so why even bother? Why play the game anymore? I hope I’m not the only big whale this game is scaring away. I genuinely hope that I am one of at least thousands saying “forget it”. EA’s Greed has reached mythic proportions and I’m so ready for their whole model to implode under the singular weight of their avarice and hubris. Enough is enough. (Or they could just tweak it so that the Mystery Scrapyard costs like a fifteenth of the points it costs now, and save themselves.) POINT OF CLARIFICATION: This game is so suddenly repulsive to me that I won’t even be renewing my Daily SimCash subscription. UPDATE! Something that’s been happening for at least a few years is that I’ll receive a notification that an offer (like for a special building or whatever) is “about to expire,” so I tap on it to take advantage of the last hour of the offer, only to discover that the offer expired WHEN I RECEIVED THE NOTIFICATION. I NEED ONE HOUR FROM THE RECEIPT OF THE NOTIFICATION TO THE ACTUAL FORETOLD EXPIRATION. This is the absolute minimum of what is acceptable. Failure to meet these basic criteria is tantamount to an F- in Business 101, because despite all the other bridges this game has burned for me, I am still willing to pay for special buildings if I’m able to just dump SimCash on it and know that I’m not embroiling myself in some nonsense gacha scenario or some conditional winning a special building if I defeat another player or whatever. I’m all about instant gratification and collecting different buildings, and I couldn’t care less about ruining other people’s experience. I also don’t have a ton of time to devote to scheduling around this GAME ON MY PHONE. Anyway, I’m a whale, and a company as greedy and disgusting as EA should get less perverse delight about specifically driving me away from their game that would be awesome if they gave it to humans to manage. Garbage.
Drains battery so fast
by Joüber on 2020/01/14 04:41
I like the game, but the game just drains my phone’s battery so fast - 16 minutes of gameplay and my battery charge went down 5%, its ridiculous. My battery is new, and its only this app that drains my phone’s battery that fast.
Amazing Game
by DireFuture6 on 2020/01/13 23:14
I love this game. It is amazing how you can build ur city in what ever way you want! One problem. I have a small sewage pipe that is polluting an area. The problem is I can’t get rid of it because is has a task on it. Plz make it so you can bulldoze it any way, or be able to change where the task pops up. That’s all. This game is awesome btw. Highly Recommend

Good game but frustrating
by Teslamodel3xd on 2020/01/13 03:29
I hate the fact how things are so expensive and also the land is so annoying to expand with these rare items like come on. I also hate the fact how you have a very small plot of land which is very annoying as well this game also needs to have a better system. I had to reinstall this game because everything was so messed up now I have to restart from level 17 back to 0
Fun, but long!
by Colebutler1995 on 2020/01/13 03:05
I enjoy the game very much so, but the thing I disagree with is that you can not rotate park and other building to fit the best way necessary to cover all the building. Also, I have found that it is taking forever to level up and advance through the game. Specially when it comes to saving up for coins or even bills. I am not going to pay real money to buy the add on building and everything. Would like it if the developers would do another update to make it easier for young mayors like me.
Very Enjoyable- PLEASE CONSIDER NEW FEATURES COMMENTED
by Incite3 on 2017/09/19 04:25
I really enjoy this game however there are some things i believe many players would agree would help if were available: 1. It would be nice you are able to look at your storage items when in another city. Sometimes i am looking for several items and since we are limited on time we cannot so easily go back to our city check what we need then go back to the city to buy any other items that are convenient. 2. I am usually in a hurry especially when it comes to challenges or when there is just too many items at the store i need. Having the option of popping a random bubble in another city really close to their store would save a lot of time. 3. It would also save a lot of time if it would just go straight to the city once it loads instead of slightly rotating around for a bit before you can look around or select anything within the city. 4. It would also be very very nice if there was a way of selecting only the items you need at a time in out factories. For example: I collect 5 items from my factory i need the 5th item but i cannot receive it unless i sell or use something in order to get the 5th item because i only have space for 4 more items when i could maybe for example hold the factory to move, or bulldoze, double tap to collect all items at the same time and tap it once to select the items i need first. I believe many players would agree if these features existed it would make the game more enjoyable!
Frustrating
by mancyness on 2017/10/14 02:21
I really like this game and I want to keep playing, but it is so frustrating. Firstly, expanding your land is so difficult. You need certain items and the game rarely gives you these items and you have about a 1% chance of finding them for sale from other players. Then, expanding your city storage is frustrating. The game gives you a ton of those items right up until you almost have enough, and then it just stops giving them to you. The game tries so hard to make you spend real money, and honestly Id feel better if I just never downloaded it. I want to play this game but I cant expand my territory without paying 24 simcash for EACH upgrade item!! Ridiculous!! I actually broke down and paid 2.99 to get 200 simcash, and it was only barely enough for one expansion, including the items I already had. Seriously this game is ridiculous!! Earning money hasnt even been the problem for me at all, like some other reviewers have said. To earn money you just have to produce and sell a lot. That is easy and feasible, and pretty fun as well. But expanding your city is difficult and frustrating. To the developers.. Please make it easier to expand!! Edit: The clubs are a cool idea, but there is no point in having them or the wars if I cant find a club that is active. Every club I join has like one post a week. I would like to participate in the wars, but I have been unable to find an active club that will allow me to do so.
Love the game, but some changes can be made.
by ghjsfujffjoomvxs on 2018/07/23 18:34
This is a great game! I love the club wars and the challenges. My city is at level 50 now, and it’s totally fun. You get to build buildings, and you can get other, special limited time buildings from the city challenges and other things too. But to expand now I have to get 20 of each item. It’s hard to get the items, eventually you’ll have to pay real money for them, so it would be nice to make them easier to obtain. Maybe at a certain point it just costs a certain amount to expand every time. It would also be nice if your city could expand more. Also, make it so there are limitless expansions. You would still need the items to expand, but like I said before, maybe stop raising the expansion cost after around maybe 20 of each item. They take up a lot of space along with being hard to obtain. Besides that, I would suggest adding weather to the game. You can see the temperature and the forecast. Maybe you can make holidays for your city to celebrate. Maybe people get injured in the weather, and you can upgrade your hospitals to take more patients. It would be cool to add snowplows that go around your city. Also, add a feature that shows how environmentally considerate your city is and healthy it is too. Maybe the more parks, mountain, beach and entertainment specialization&#39;s you have your sims health improves. Those are all my suggestions. I would highly recommend this game, it’s super fun!
Good,but frustrating!!!!!
by Iluvekats on 2018/11/23 13:08
I really enjoyed playing this game, but feel that a few items should be changed about the game. I think that if you put an item for sale you should be able to spend coins or dollars to take the item down and keep the item. I also think it would be nice if we could trade omega items with others. My main issue with this game is when it comes to having a war with another group. There seems to be a new strategy going around, which while brilliant, it’s frustrating and makes me not want to play. Team 1 goes in and bombs team 2 quickly, therefore accumulating a lot of war points quickly. Team 2 retaliates, but maybe they don’t have as many members, so they can’t put up as many war points as quickly. Team 1 is completely bubbled and doesn’t ever unbubble. So team 1 is going to win because they refuse to unbubble, and team too just has to sit there and wait. I understand that it is “war “ but this is happening every time I play, and it’s to the point where I don’t even want to go to war with my group anymore. Can’t you make it so that we either have to pay a penalty if we stay bubbled after a certain amount of time or you automatically have to unbubble after so many hours? Just in the name of fairness this would be a great option. Again I understand it’s a game, and it’s a great strategy, but it’s been used way too much and it’s ruining the game for me.
Ok game, some problems (please read)
by rossco the cat on 2019/04/13 00:07
I got this game when my mom started talking about how she used to be obsessed with it, and after I saw her playing it. I can spend hours making things to upgrade my buildings, and even longer trying to do challenges and cargo shipments... and, well, you get the point. I use the global trade HQ all the time, and I like how they added export HQs for the other regions so that there’s multiple ways to earn lime simoleons and other currencies like that. However, I do wish there was one other way to earn sim cash. I barely ever spend any, and have been saving them for a while, but I still don’t have that much. I know that there’s already a lot of ways to earn them, but I feel like at least once a couple days there’s a option to earn them by making a bunch of materials in a hour or something like that. Or, at least, make it a little more common to get simcash from watching videos. Speaking of which, there’s something that really bugs me. You see, sometimes when I watch a video, it doesn’t give me a reward. And no, I’m not talking about when one of the three boxes are empty. Sometimes the option to pick from them doesn’t come up, which is frustrating after I’ve spent time watching a ad. I feel like that’s one thing that definitely needs to be fixed.
Algorithm Updates
by ring_zero on 2017/10/15 20:49
Success in this game requires heavy use of the Global Trade to find things to buy. SimCity has always used algorithms to determine what is offered to you to buy. For example, if you need specific items to upgrade a building, SimCity will filter these items out of the Global Trade, requiring you to spend even more time trying to find them. Eventually, perhaps after about 30 minutes of searching, the algorithm might allow one or two to appear. On the other hand, if you don&#39;t need a particular item, that item is much more likely to appear to buy. If you don&#39;t need them and already have several of them in your inventory, they are even more likely to appear. If you have some items, like hamburgers, for example, up for sale yourself, then dozens of them will appear on the Global Trade for you to buy because the algorithm has determined you are unlikely to need them. In this way, the algorithm modifies items on the Global Trade so that high demand always equals low (or nonexistent) supply and low demand always equals high supply. SimCity updates these algorithms in most patches. This latest patch has caused even low demand items to not appear on the Global Trade. I don&#39;t know exactly what was done, but now nearly all of the time I am offered about 7 different things. This prevents players from stocking up on items for future demand. Hopefully this gets fixed in the next update.
Good game but some things need to be fixed.
by Avidrailroader57 on 2018/09/30 06:44
I’ve been playing this game for a few years now and I like seeing all the mew exciting changes. However, I find it so difficult to expand my city and city storage. Especially when I need to collect these items that take forever to get all and take up half of my city storage. Also, please make the Global Trade HQ easier to use by adding a search bar for the thing you need, not having to wait 30 seconds and hope the item you need will appear. Please add an option to stop upgrading buildings. I don’t need a thousand skyscrapers in my city. It doesn’t look realistic. I really like the idea of the regional cities but there are a few things that should be worked out. One: Why is it if I have three regional homes and one regular home, the demand for any service is seven? Shouldn’t it be four like in the capital city. Two: Why can’t we place the other commercial building in out regional city instead of having to travel back and forth to get supplies. The same applies to factories. Three Can we get some sort of city hall or town hall to be able to collect more of the regional currency. Finally, I would like to be able to choose a name for my regional city instead of calling it Cactus Canyon or one of the other names.
Wonderful game!
by Snowstorm9595 on 2019/06/16 13:29
i really enjoy this game so far. i’ve only had it for around 2 days, but i’m already on level 13! i love how it doesn’t take time for the building upgrades to finish, for it only takes from 5-20 seconds in a stunning time-lapse process. you also don’t have to pay for main road extensions, which is great for players and awfully realistic for this kind of game. i also enjoy the fact that EA took great measure to ensure that their game had an accurate representation of pollution in several of the buildings, such as the Coal Power Plant or the Factories. they also included population, which efficiently helps upgrade your city. i’d also like to point out the Simoleons you obtain from residential upgrades is very realistic, as more people pay taxes for the mayor and the government. i know i’ve been pointing out everything i adore about this game, but truly, in my opinion, there’s nothing wrong with this game. one more thing- the thought bubbles above the buildings. some will give you efficient store items if clicked, some give you compliments, and some notify you they’re not getting power, water, sewer outflow, etc. i really believe Electronic Arts did an exquisite job with this game. i’d love to see more games as time goes on!
Ridiculous In-App purchases
by AFlame101 on 2019/01/02 04:38
Overall I did enjoy some aspects of this app. As an aspiring architect I downloaded this game expecting the whole “you have to pay to get this exclusive building” with a few buildings. But here’s the thing. Almost EVERY nice building/placeable item is expensive. Not to mention the cash in game is RIDICULOUSLY expensive. 50$ for like 2900 cash? Yeah no thanks. Plus, it is almost impossible to gain the larger and more eco friendly factories/power/water etc. Also, in the beginning they do not tell you about any of the fire stations and stuff you need later on, so I went about my game until I realized I had to redesign my entire city to place one fire station in. I ended up redownloading the game and starting all over. I just think it’s extremely dumb to have levels in this game? And have to expand your city land? With items that I almost never get??! It’s insanity! The only good thing about this game is designing a city. But they make it so hard - and the buildings are too expensive for the amount of coins normal players have. I’m not going to spend 500$ to buy a non-pollution power plant. I don’t want to spend money on this game. Maybe if it was better designed and didn’t have levels i would. But until something is done about the cash/coin problem, I don’t recommend this game. However it is a good way to waste 7 hours to upgrade a house that only gives you like 200 coins :)
Needs two More Features
by Mastergeko4 on 2018/08/01 21:21
I Love this game and the concept of it. I enjoy playing and it’s a good game to play when your bored. There’s only one thing I wish you could add. I remember playing Clash of Clans and you had the option to create 3 different layouts of your built city. For example, I would like to be able to experiment with different city layouts without having to ruin my primary city layout or I would like to be able to build an entirely new city with the stuff I already have. Another feature that I would like to have is the ability to search any item that your looking for on the global trade HQ. It’s incredibly infuriating when I can’t find the things I need and I hope you can change it and add a search bar to search all the listings of the thing you need. Because I noticed that there is this Filtration system that filters out things you need. And it doesn’t play Dumb either. I Mean it will Literally Filter out things that you need to make the ITEMS that you need! I mean seriously?!?! Your making the Global Trade HQ HELL ON EARTH! Please do something about this! These are features that I would love to have and I hope you could consider adding these features in the future!
Enjoy the game...
by I haste in the shower on 2019/12/12 23:39
Been playing now for a year and a half. I enjoy the game every day and look forward to growing my city. However, I would like to see some improvements: please change the statements for my citizens&#39; opinion bubbles(seeing the same ones all the time is boring); I wish there was a comprehensive way to see a breakdown of all my cities&#39; buildings by type, population, latest update date, etc; and although I enjoy the Mayoral Contests, I find it very difficult to finish in the top ten even though I only complete the assignments that have the highest point value. I understand that spending real money to finish higher in the standings is probably necessary(and even rewarded with higher point total assignments) however some mayors&#39; point totals above me seem impossible for me to obtain without some kind of hacking of the game and that possibility makes me question even participating in future Mayoral Contests. Why spend real $$ trying to beat a cheater!!!&#34; So now it is December 2019 and I am having problems after upgrading Mayors Pass Season 3. I cannot get into the game because I’m kicked out before my city appears. I have asked for an explanation and am told that “the team” is working on a solution. 3 days later I’m still waiting. Boiler plate responses and apologies just don’t do the trick. I have completed all updates of iOS, force-quit the app and reinstall the app but still nothing.
Enjoyable until it asks for things you can’t get
by Bellocinodeoro on 2018/12/12 03:11
I downloaded this game because it seemed very similar to the DOS version of SimCity I used to play many years ago. The first part of the game was very exiting and I really enjoyed building homes and roads and factories. And getting my city to grow. I was on the phone at any moment I could. The more I did the more requirements kept me pumped up. But it gets to a point when I started to get into Mayor contests and it starts asking for wars between cities. That makes this too complicated for what I am willing to play. Also the building upgrades requests items that I cannot produce or buy like a sweater or bread. Then the upgrades requests things that take 5 or more hours to make turning it hardly impossible to complete the task without being stuck to the phone practically all day. I think a game like this should allow the user to play at leisure. I don’t have time to dedicate only to a game. I would love a game that stays simple and keeps me engaged. Microsoft had a game called Age of empires that kept me going up to the end because tasks where hard but possible. The same i would say for the first version of Starcraft. For that reason I am deleting the app from my phone. I gave it 3 stars because the game is well designed. And it gave me pleasure before it gave me frustrations.
Love the game!
by Tank<>hero_555 on 2018/08/17 22:50
I love this game! I re-downloaded it a while ago and have since progressed my city to level 30 and amassed over 505,000 people. It has beautiful graphics, simple gameplay, and its just fun and honestly has almost a calming effect to it :) One feature I wish they would add is a sort of View mode where it would hide all the thought bubbles and construction bubbles and items so you could just view and admire your city as if you were visiting it. Expanding on that idea I think it would be awesome if they also added a ‘street view’ like you might use in Google Maps or something where you could pick a point and then have simple arrow controls to glide around using your streets (and possibly boardwalk for those of us who are level 15+) as a sort of track and you could just look around your city from the perspective of living in it. Also I think it would be neat to have a weather or changing climate based on random selection or that could sync with your local weather (Of course some players might want to be able to toggle this option on and off so probably best to add a toggle button in settings) Again, love the game and thank you for your consideration. 😄
Predatory App Design
by Fixthedicerandomization on 2018/07/27 20:17
The bottom line is that this game has been engineered so tightly that the only way to advance or accomplish anything is to spend actual money. Any attempt to intellectually feel out the game’s possibilities will only lead to the discovery of a 30ft invisible pay wall firmly constructed at your city’s borders. This pay wall cannot be penetrated, although it can be slowly and meticulously expanded by grinding it out and collecting meager taxes from you citizens. This wouldn’t actually be that bad if there were more freedoms such as terraforming or choosing your climate (such as existed in previous mobile versions). In this game, you start off and continue to tend your city in the same pre fabricated terrain and climate as all of the other thousands of people who downloaded the game. The direction EA has gone is especially sad for SimCity, because the mobile market is where this game really could have survived into the next decade, but with lackluster PC offerings I have a feeling this franchise is just about dead. It looks like they will try to ride the last little wave by providing a cookie cutter sandbox, soft shapes and bright colors and the thinking, or lack thereof, to go along with it. I’m sure I’ll just be overlooked as the “curmudgeon” that likes those old boring “complicated” games in which you have to do ALL that thinking, but this is just disappointing. This game is a one or two week deleter taking up valuable space on my device.
SimCity
by 59,&;'enddjskworkfjcj on 2019/08/29 21:02
SimCity is an alright game, I would easily have given it 5 stars, but there are just too many flaws. The biggest being money. The game tries way too hard to get you to spend money on the game. First, expanding land is nearly impossible the further in the game you get, and can take a solid month just to expand a little bit. Then they try to get you to spend like 20 dollars on expansion equipment that won’t even be enough to expand. It’s ridiculous. Another flaw that just bothers me is how you can’t search for specific items in the shop. They’ll give you challenges where you need a surplus of supplies, nearly all of which you don’t have, and you can’t even find them in the shop. All you can find is the most expensive item from your level that you never need. One last flaw is when you try to upgrade your buildings. It used to be reasonable and still a challenge to upgrade where the first bronze upgrade cost 10 of those stars. They recently changed it to 40, and I have been unable to get it every time and just loose loads of money. To get that you’d need to be on the game 24/7, it’s b.s.. Before I wrote this review I actually had this game at 4 stars, but remembering everything that annoys me actually brought it down. Please fix some of these problems
Needs fixes and update
by Kimburrr_462 on 2017/12/13 07:45
Okay first I’ll say, when producing items for the snowflakes, it’s Extremely frustrating when you spend time buying and making items and then start producing the items for the snowflake, and then all of a sudden the snowflake changes to a different item out of nowhere. Second. There should be a way to add friends, without using Facebook. My Facebook is used for professional use and I do not want to create another just for a game. I have come across other cities through groups I would like to keep as my friend but I can’t because they aren’t my Facebook friends and that is a bummer. Third. There should be a way to access our personal inventory while in someone else’s city, so we know what we have and can compare it to what we need. Besides that I will say this is a very fun and addictive game. I have been playing the sims games since the started on the PC version, I play sim city and free play and enjoy them both a lot. With a few fixes and updates I would easily change to a five star rating. Hope you guys take our feed backs seriously as I have seen others say the same thing I’m saying and then some!

This game is a great way to pass some time and I’m sure it’s enjoyable to casual players, but I play the club wars and am trying to expand what I can as fast as I can and I find it frustrating. I’m not sure what algorithm you use to determine what we see in the global trade hq, but it’s always 80% spices, 19% basic supplies like wood and metal, and 1% what I actually need. Then, by the time I load the city to go buy what I need, it’s already gone! This is frustrating when I am on a time crunch with shipments (especially for war) and the item I am looking for takes 20+ minutes to craft. Additionally, it’s frustrating that you have sewage and power and factories and stuff all making pollution, but you have to go to their individual categories and try to picture the sum total of all the pollution to determine how to build. It would be nice to see an option for a total pollution overlay. I also get annoyed that there is not an easy way to see the inventory (unless you are in your city and go to the storage building) or see what war attacks you have and items you need for them (without going into the war screen, which causes you to leave your city, and then go through two sub menus).
Great game-for a while
by Jason Thomas Gross on 2018/03/11 05:37
This is a neat throwback to SimCity on Windows, which I spent hundreds of hours playing back in the day. So of course I gave this a shot. The gameplay does not disappoint, it’s a very nice system that works. The trading feature is great and it seems that the mechanics (engine?) work very well.. for example, it’s easy to see and address the needs of the city. My issue is that, like most games on the AppStore, when you get to a point, progress seems to slow down unless you start paying real money for things. I’d rather pay $5-$10 for a solid app that has everything you need to play without spending anymore real cash, unless you want an expansion pack or something. I’m sure there are others who swear they can have a huge successful city without spending a dime, but when I’m struggling to get the city running, only to suddenly have to “upgrade the roads”, it’s a bit aggravating. I give it 4 stars because it is truly a great game at its core, but the whole “spending money to play” gimmick is tiring. Remove the IAPs (except for things like expansion packs) and I’m sure people will gladly pay for this addicting and fulfilling game.
Ads are ridiculous!
by Hawkeyeboots on 2019/02/12 13:18
I love this game but the new update means you get ads constantly when trying to build items in your factories. Since that is a critical part of the game, I am forced to watch ads pretty much every other time I try to build resources. It’s enough to make me want to quit the game altogether because it just isn’t fun anymore. I’m a high level player and have had the game for years. I don’t mind watching ads for bonuses or to speed things up, but this is so ridiculous. ***update*** Ads are still annoying. I think they tried to fix how often they pop up but I really think it’s ruining the game. I don’t want to watch 60 seconds of an ad to speed up something that takes 60 seconds. 🙄 I’ve already lost one of my best club members because of this and I’m seriously thinking of quitting myself until they sort this out. It’s especially frustrating because even if you try to exit the ad, a second one pops up that you aren’t able to close. The other annoying thing is that it is pretty much impossible now to get the resources you need to expand. You used to be able to earn them by watching optional videos, which meant people were regularly selling them in the market. Now it’s basically impossible to earn them without spending money and no one ever has enough of them to sell them off. Such a bad move by the developers.
Why am I still playing?
by no1knowsme on 2019/01/31 00:16
I’ve been a fan of all the “Sim” games for a while and was stoked to find a smart phone version. The game starts off slow and as you race to build your city hoping for more excitement, you’ll find its always just mildly entertaining. My biggest complaint is the cost of some of the content they try and sell you, sometimes a single building can run about $20. If you bought most of the special buildings they offer, you would spend hundreds every year which I think is absolutely outrageous for a free game with little to offer. You might as well spend $50 and buy the computer version, you’ll be much happier and you won’t be constantly pestered to watch ads or buy extremely overpriced content. My second complaint is the new war system. I thought they finally added something of value to this game, but I was very wrong. The club wars are long, tedious and boring, most clubs I’ve faced choose to hide behind shields for most of the 24hr attack phase coming out right at the end to try and just one up your score. During most club wars, I find myself staring at the war lobby for hours on end waiting to attack someone. I’m not sure why they give you 24hrs to attack when most of the excitement takes up maybe an hour. If you’re considering downloading this game in hopes to satisfy some old school sim city action, look elsewhere.
Frustrating w/ no more assignments & golden tickets rule
by yankeesKat22 on 2018/09/03 05:28
I love the game, but when it comes to the assignments, I get frustrated when I run out of assignments and have plenty of golden tickets &amp; they ONLY allow you to use 5 of them. Why can’t you use more than that if you have more?? So all the hard work I put in to get my score up high, but still have over a day left to play and all the hard work was for nothing. I was at least going to qualify for a prize, then I watched my score on the leaderboard drop below the “no prize” line. That to me is unfair. When you have enough golden tickets to buy more assignments, you should be able to use them. What else are they good for? You should at least raise the limit higher to the individual player’s amount of golden tickets. So if one player has only 5, then of course that player’s limit is 5. But if another player has 10, that player’s limit is 10. If another player have 20, that player’s limit is 20, and so forth.. Every player should make their own decision on how many golden tickets they want to use per assignment. If they use them up all in 1 day, that’s their choice, or if they want to use only 1 a day, again that’s their choice. The no more assignments with the golden tickets rule, needs to change ASAP!! Thank you.
So fun but the update drives me bonkers
by Leighbaum on 2019/02/14 11:11
So I have really enjoyed playing this game. However my biggest frustration is the update for ads. I don’t mind the ability to click on ads in order to get stuff. But I highly dislike that in the production setting it automatically starts an add to speed up the process of production. I think it’s a neat feature but I hate that I can’t click out of ads most the time and that it speeds up thinks like metal which only take a min to build and then the ad pops up for 30 seconds. I feel like it’s a waste. I also feel like they pop up too often and it rips me out of the game if I’m trying to produce a lot of metal and other short time items. I like the bubble ads that I can click on and they give me options. So maybe thats a better ideas. Like after you go to click off production, instead of automatically launching an ad, ask if they’d like to speed up production by watching an ad. I would be much more inclined to watch one on the long production items if it was a choice and I wasn’t forced to watch them. But half the time you can’t close the add until it’s basically over anyway.
What else can I say?
by BrendanDobbs on 2018/05/28 04:23
When I first got the job to play this game and set up this review I was thinking why in the world would Sims make a mobile game about building your own city? In the PC Sims game the games are about building houses and putting family’s that you control in your house and MAKING SURE THEY DONT DIE which at times can put a lot of stress on you but the fun type of stress not the kind that makes you go OMG I’m so stressed out but the kind that makes one go OMG I’m so stressed out... You get what I mean? Anyways it seemed ridiculous that the people at Sims would want to make a game that’s about putting down buildings and that being that... but I was wrong the satisfaction of you making your own city and it looking like an actual city is in a way truly magnificent and satisfying. I’m the game you can join mayors clubs which are groups of people that make there own club in the game and than do “Club Wars” so they can destroy other people’s city’s... how could that be any better. So there is so much more in this game that you can do and I strongly suggest you should get the game. I’m Brendan Dobbs from GG Games and I give this game 4 stars congratulations.
Loved it up until a few days ago :-(
by Miss Mylin on 2017/09/10 02:03
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this game. I&#39;m not usually into these types of games whatsoever, but this is SO ADDICTING! Up until a few days ago I had no real complaints, however, lately my sim cash seems to keep vanishing. The first time I thought I pressed something by accident and made a purchase I couldn&#39;t figure out. Now it&#39;s happened again and I&#39;m completely bummed! The first time I went from over $62 in sim cash to about 9 or 10... then I just got up to around $42 and it dropped down to $10! It may not seem like much to some, but sim cash is hard to come by and it took a while to earn that. I know it&#39;s just a game but it helps me relieve so much stress when I get a moment to myself to relax, and the game should be fair... I&#39;m not sure if anyone else is experiencing this but I hope this gets fixed. It&#39;s bothersome enough to make me delete the game. It takes away from the fun and makes it not worth the time or effort put into the game when you can just lose something you put so time into it. Please fix this! For some reason, I no longer get epic projects. Can someone fix this?
Needs New Marketplace
by Fozznaut on 2017/12/19 08:30
Overall, it is well done. However, the game developers should really consider the marketplace feature. Currently, you must wait 30 seconds for a random selection of items to appear. More often than not the items that appear are the same items all priced at the highest market value. This makes it incredibly difficult to find particular items that are more rare. A true marketplace where I could search for the item I want to purchase would not only make life in the game a bit easier, it would also allow for true economic principles to take shape: pricing strategies. If it is a rare item the salesman can sell it at a high price, and if it is common and you want to sell it more quickly then price it lower. Having a screen with all the cities selling a particular item would allow the player to price shop for their item, and make it so the player doesn’t have to stare at their phone for 30 minutes praying a particular item randomly appears in the trade HQ only to be snagged by someone else .5 seconds before.
Best Game EVER
by KristenDaRay on 2018/12/19 02:19
I’ve always been a hardcore simmer. And build it is amazing for a mobile platform game. It has soooo much that you can do and the developers put a lot of work into it. They also listen to the players and continue to improve the game as we play. I’ve seen complaints about expansion items and the rarity of certain other items, but honestly I have not had these issues. Sure I could get them quicker if I paid real cash, but I get them just fine through other sources. That’s something else I love. This game is not ridden with ads. There are ad bubbles that you can choose to click on and watch which will give you mystery items. And I LOVE THAT. I’m not forced to watch an ad but I get rewarded when I do willingly. My only complaint would be to allow us to collect some sort of tax on our regional cities. Those can be hard to develop with out strong ways to earn regional money. At least if the game asks for items for sale, sell them for more than just a few regional money. Most items are just 3-4 regional money.
Used to love this game. Buyers beware of temporary prizes for real money
by JenJ09 on 2019/09/08 14:26
I really loved playing this game at first. But then you realize they almost force you to send money to be able to compete properly. I don’t mind spending some money here or there. I had a big problem when they didn’t clearly state prior to purchase that storage was temporary and took storage away. I tried to complain and they did not care that I paid real money for something that was taken back. It was not clearly stated and they didn’t even care to meet me half way. They don’t want hackers in their game but then they punish players who spend real money. How is it a policy to make ANYTHING temporary that you pay real money for? They have this tiered approach to storage and expansions. You have to increasingly save more spaces just to gain the same 5 storage spots. At times, at higher levels, you are basically saving 75 to 100 storage spaces at a time if you are saving for everything. It takes forever to earn the items too. It is a big deal when 20 spaces are taken back from a player. It is wrong and the way they treat their players who feed their business and it makes me not want to play anymore. I have been a long time SIMS player and I am so disappointed in the company.
Too much of a grind
by marcusdiddle on 2018/01/16 23:47
Downloaded this game when it was featured as the app of the day. The prospect of building a city, laying out buildings, creating roads, etc seemed enjoyable and something I could do in my spare time without getting too involved. I generally enjoyed it at first. But to be honest, it just became far too much of a grind. There’s a heavy emphasis on purchasing credits to be able to do or speed up anything. I was determined to not actually spend real money on the game in the form of micro-transactions. Honestly if the game were just $10 and then you can build away however you like, I’d probably love it. But I ultimately ended up deleting it. When you have to build items in a factory, so you can in turn build a shovel, so you can then grow some grass, so you can then upgrade a residence, and before you know it you wound up waiting a collective two hours just for that grass, and then you find out that to upgrade the building again, you need two chairs, which means you need to make two hammers....ugh, just a pain at that point and the game lost enjoyment for me. It was fun for a few minutes, got to level 19, but it grew old...
Starts awesome but then becomes irritating.
by mp3j-totesky on 2019/09/08 04:56
Developers of this game seem to have forgotten why we play simcity; building stuff and managing town issues like water, electricity, schools and traffic. At start the game is awesome, you get to do all that stuff and build things with materials created on you own factories. But then it starts asking for more and more stuff you cannot manufacture to the point you cant expand land, build anything or even upgrade any building, there is always something you don&#39;t have that prevents you from doing everything. And so, you end on the global market hq waisting hours on end trying to unsuccessfully get the stuff needed, until you are bored out of your mind, And if by some miracle you do find what you are looking for, chances are that your warehouse is full, and it requires other stuff you don’t have to increase its capacity, which, of course, you can’t find either, more wasted hours on market. Solution to this problem is always buying stuff with real money, quite expensively I might add. I understand the need to make money, but I rather pay for some version of simcity classic that I could enjoy indefinitely than continue stuck on this games global market hell. It just becomes unplayable after a while. :(
Blatant hacks and inept developers
by OriginalGamer89 on 2019/07/04 11:41
I give this game two stars instead of one because it can be fun and challenging when competing with other legitimate cities. Unfortunately, EA/Track Twenty have devoted woefully inadequate resources to combat hacking; giving rise to a group of hackers who are the most brazen I have seen in over 25 years of gaming. They literally have their own discord channels and aren&#39;t too careful about hiding what they&#39;re about. What does this mean for you? Mayors contests are dominated by players with scores that are mathematically impossible, and club wars are overrun with teams with cards that aren&#39;t yet achievable even to those who spend tens of thousands of dollars (let that sink in on its own; some actually spend at that level and still can&#39;t keep up). If such obvious hacks are reported (even by dozens of players), the cities are not removed until weeks or months later (if at all), and they simply storm back with other hacked cities as if nothing happened. TT&#39;s response: release increasingly novel ways to get players to make in-game purchases that perversely make hacking the game even easier. This game will make a great case study in how to destroy a promising game through ineptitude and negligence.
Awesome totally recommend it
by hdidndndjsmd. skx on 2018/08/28 04:45
The game is a great game I started playing When I was 7 I’m am 11 now and still absolutely love it unlike a lot of other games it it not pay to go up I’m level 22 almost 23 and I have not spent a single cent on it I do things do take a little to long like 5 hours for glass but that is later in the game you do not need sim cash witch you get from achievements or contest of the mayor or you can straight up by it is sure it is a little overpriced but what do you expect there are no annoying advertisements either like a LOT of other greedy games. Trading is fun to find what you need right there updating it so I can’t use it at this moment but it will be soon but there is one thing I noticed Whalen you get items to launch disasters it gives you all but one of the items I don’t now if I just got unlucky or if it is on purpose most of the service buildings are fairly priced but I think the pollution radius is to big but this game is over all amazing than you for reading this review great job
It used to be fun
by M E G A O O F on 2018/08/17 04:48
SimCity build it was fun for a while. Building your city is pretty fun, although a bit frustrating sometimes. It’s pretty good. But now, they have these stupid age restrictions. Apparently, if you are under a certain age, you can’t access four different buildings. 3 out of 4 of the buildings I din’t know about, but there’s one of them that’s completely stupid. The global trade HQ. the global trade HQ is the MOST IMPORTANT BUILDING IN THE GAME. Since most items take a long time to make, you’ll find yourself only able to play for about 10 minutes, then go do something else. But with the global trade HQ, you can buy these items from other players. In addition to that, you can also get free gifts sometimes from other players. But since I am under a certain age, I can’t access it. THIS IS NONSENSE. Why is it age restricted? You give me the ability of in-app purchases, where a kid could potentially waste all of his parents money, but you DON’T give me the global trade HQ, ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT BUILDINGS IN THE GAME. The only way to get around this would be to start over your entire game, but I’m already at level 13, meaning that everything I have done at this point was a waste of time. 2 stars
Make changes to Global Trade HQ
by jrob121212 on 2019/10/16 20:01
I find the game enjoyable however it would be nice if the developers added a feature that allows players search for a specific item(s) in the Global Trade HQ. Many times I find myself needing a specific item(s) that I cant make yet to upgrade a building or complete a quest. To bypass that issue I rely on the Trade HQ for what I need to continue. Currently when the Trade HQ is opened the player only sees “featured items” which is fine but there is no option that I have found to see only the items I need/want to see. For example say I needed to expand my city but was lacking one or more of the bulldozer parts, those three parts can’t be produced, they are obtained by chance during gameplay but people do occasionally sell them. Rather than wasting my time jumping in and out of different cities looking for those items it would be nice if there was a way to select and see only those items I need. It’s getting annoying when I need something and every “featured item” box contains pizza for an entire real world day.
Suggestions...
by VCG1912 on 2019/12/29 14:38
Love this game and would give it 5 stars but there are some features that I think would enhance gameplay. One suggestion would be to add government to the regional cities. It’s so difficult to simply gather money from the updating the housing and you get so little from updating them. The only way to get more money is to do the trading option and it shouldn’t be the only way. Making the updates be worth more than the meager hundred or so simoleons from updating the housing would also enhance gameplay. Another is to shift the trade items in the trading depot around. So many times when I’m getting supplies from there I see the same three items (currently it’s mostly pizza, hamburgers, and the ice cream bar). I know that they are worth a lot and other users want to use it to get fast money but there are other items needed that would be better to have if they were available. Suggestion #3 would be to add the stores that are only available in the capital city. Sure you can take one from the capital city and plop it in a regional city but then if you need it you need to plop it back or just go in between the two cities to get supplies and that is not a functional. It gets annoying and we should be able to have more of those stores to go around... like the factories. I hope some of these gets implemented because I really like playing the game and like the fact that you can play with other users through the wars and stuff.
Good Game but needs some work...
by 🐶PuppyGirl48🐶 on 2018/01/27 14:04
I love the game and I play it all the time. But, there a few minuses about the game. Like how everything is so expensive. I unlocked the garbage government thing and it cost 6000 sim cash. It’s not easy to earn sim cash when you’re in higher levels, though, because you’re constantly buying stuff from the World Trade Center so you don’t have to wait for the factories ad stores. Also, everything that you need to produce in the upper levels takes forever, forcing you to use sim cash if you need to upgrade a residential area or expand your city. And I don’t get the harbor, because I can’t make the ship leave so I can get a golden key. I also hate how education is a government requirement, but you have to pay golden keys for the schools. It should just be sim cash, because there’s only two ways to earn golden keys, and they’re both higher level things. I also would like to recommend changing the stores so that we can collect sim cash from them, so it’s not as hard to get the government requirements. But overall, the game is really cool and fun, but it does need a bit of work.
OMEGA and CLUB Review
by Blahhhhhhjhhhjvfghn on 2017/12/18 20:59
Something has got to give on the omega production/storage units. You can&#39;t control what items that need to be manufactured, and you can&#39;t sell/delete the items you may have too many of or do not need. Your storage unit gets way too full of useless or the exact same items over and over again and then you&#39;re essentially screwed. You have to build an omega structure just to get rid of items you don&#39;t need, then if you don&#39;t have the neo-coins to buy the drones etc. for that structure, you have to delete it. All to do the exact same thing over again just to get your inventory down to try and collect more random items in hopes of getting what you need. Either make it where you can sell/delete items out of your omega storage unit or where you can actually pick what you manufacture. The way it&#39;s set up now is a little ridiculous. ALSO, Members within a club should be able to donate keys, platinum keys, and coins to other club members. The only real way to help members out is just to put up items for sale. You should be able to donate more &#34;stuff&#34; to your club members.
Great, but....
by WhyareUugly on 2019/09/17 14:40
A well balanced game, however I have a few gripes with it so far. Number 1 since the last update some “buildings” with water features are now dark blue and do not blend in with the water of a lake or pond it looks very out of place, it seems like no big deal but if you play this game from a design aspect it throws it off. Number 2 when upgrading to an epic building, the items it asks for are not easy to get in most cases, which is expected, however why ask for 5?!? And repeatedly ask for the same item in those same large quantities? Makes no sense, 2 or 3 is reasonable, as it will take awhile anyway just for those. Number 3 why not have separate speed up tokens for factories as well, that can’t be purchased but only made like with the epic buildings? The last one isn’t a gripe but a request, please give us more landscape and design features in the game(i.e that are not earned but simply purchased through the many forms of currency), a lot of them are too similar and plain looking. Although there’s way more to do in this game than just build it’s still a design game at its core.
Best game ever created
by Listen to me!...z on 2018/11/26 03:01
Sim city is extraordinary and has more to it than shown, everybody should get a chance to be the mayor of a city. I notice that when you sell a war item it only applies for club members, but it’s not an option. You can’t change it or change another item to just your club. Many times I tell a club member that what they need is up but it’s gone by the time they get there because someone clicks on a different advertised item and buys both. Also with how many little details the city has already, there needs to be aquatic life. Like a dolphin that come up out of the water giving a spectacular view for the sims. And maybe more water side, like a doc or a boat. All of this would be in the water you put inside your city. One more thing, I spend a lot of time admiring my city and work, so it would be cool if you could get down low with the city. Almost like google earth wear you have a street view. Awesome game! And thank you for your consideration.
Fun until.... Lvl 20 then you run out of room.
by gator416609 on 2017/09/23 18:39
Have had this game for over a year, still have a bunch of the special buildings, Halloween, Christmas, Empire State Building, opera, expo center, ballon rides, 2016 New Years ball at my entrance. I had lots of fun for the first 20 levels. It was hard but I kept playing. It&#39;s been almost a year of not playing. I had stopped playing in hopes that some things would get easier. I have expanded to the point of needing 30 special pieces, for each. I need 7 expansions, 210 special pieces I have not found them in the auction, rarely pop up from my population, I&#39;m to the point where I WOULD need pay to expand and play further. I could buy them, but hey they are just to expensive. I have and do use cash on some of these games, but when you figure the math, it&#39;s not worth it. Same reason I don&#39;t invest in other EA sponsored games, like the NFL. I just stop playing. I understand these things cost money. I could justify a couple bucks to expand a tile, but $10 to expand ONE TILE, or $70 dollars to expand all 7, it&#39;s Just not worth it. Have fun while you can, it will take up a bunch of your time, you also will probably say &#34;oh well&#34;
SimCity is the best!!!
by Twiggy2508 on 2019/12/23 21:41
I love SimCity. You are a mayor of a city and you have to build it and keep your happiness up. In my bedroom, I make a pretend city call Tenaroto. Also, you get to buy and sell stuff and make your own stuff and you have to give your stuff that you make in your factories to the construction team so they can make houses and you can upgrade them and make them into HUGE towers like the skyscraper in NewYork City, United States. The only thing I don’t like about the game is there isn’t any crime, deaths, or fires when you build fire, police, and hospitals. Like in real life, even though houses have a fire station or a police station or a doctors office near there house, there are still crimes, fires, and sicknesses. Overall, SimCity is the best city building game in the world. Twiggy2508 P.S I also don’t like that you can’t make your own city name. My city name was going to be Tenaroto but had to change it to twiggy city. Please Change those things.
Why I love SimCity build it and some tips to makers please read
by hrhrhdhdhdhfhfhhfhfhfhhfhf on 2019/03/03 16:10
This is a awesome game I got it like 2weeks ago and was really into it I love that there are no forced ads and if there are ads they get you material and all of the ads are optinal witch is great it fits everything I could ask for in a game I highly recommend this game for adventurous people just to exaggerate the point I lovvvvvvvvvvve this game absolutely the best game ever made I used to play a lot of others games this on e took them over in a snap so best game ever hope you buy it and enjoy it well actually if you buy it and spend enough time on it you will enjoy it no doubt it is really frustrating at the first that is where I almost quit but by the time a had 5,000 people in my city and if that sounds like a lot but it really isn’t that hard I have207,001 people in my city in under half a year I wish there was seasons though there is just day and night and rain there need to be snow and summer and spring and fall
Love It
by bjeverson on 2019/05/09 20:31
I really do enjoy this app! It’s fun and easy to pass time with. I wish, however, that when looking for things to buy in the Global Trade HQ there would be a limit of how many items pop up. It seems that I always have almost a full page of burgers being offered which can be annoying. I would also love to see more regions! Perhaps some regions tied to the buildings we already have? Like a London themed region for our London townhouses or an Omega themed region for our Omega homes. I love the Omega buildings, but I do not like the way they look in my capital city so I wish there was a way to store the Omega government buildings. Another cool idea could be seasonal regions? Such as a Halloween themed region (we have access to them all year long) but during the holiday there is special tasks to complete in that region. It would also be nice to be able to merge certain buildings. For example, instead of having 5 sewage treatment plants, we can merge them with up to three others.
The people & what they want
by golden chicken stew (gcs) on 2019/09/19 21:52
So in the game you have to build your own city, as so but in it they tend to get a bit... greedy. In the game you spend a lot of money. Then in the future you might not be able to buy most things. So for an example: If the people or sims want there sewage gone you need to build one but back in the past you spent a lot of money. So you cant really help them making them get mad and either leaving or adding to the number of mad people in the city. And to get more money you need to make stuff and build houses or just trade with mega Corp And stuff like that but it takes time to make the materials that you need. Then in that time the more mad people will get added because of you the mayor taking a long time to get that stuff done. Yes I know it’s a strategy game and people want to figure out and solve problems but sometimes those problems could get too out of hand. But the rest of the game is good. So I know that the game is supposed to be realistic and in real life people need what they want but you could pay too much for something someone needs or multiple people who needs whatever like power. You could pay too much for a power plant or something but when you get to level 8 people want sewage stuff. But last time you used almost all of your money so you can’t buy sewage plants. And yes again it’s a strategy game and it’s also supposed to be realistic but I’m aware of that.
Great fun way to pass the time without pressure
by Makellams on 2019/05/10 13:21
This is a fun way to pass the time. I really find it enjoyable and in a way relaxing. It definitely takes patience. You can’t be in a hurry to build your cities. A couple things I would ask to improve upon: I’d like to be able to zoom out a little further. My cities have gotten big enough that I can’t zoom far enough out to see the whole thing. Also, I don’t do Facebook. I’d like to have a way to add friends in a social network outside of Facebook, or add a chat room to the game so people can ask each other for items. Lastly, it would be great if we could search for a particular item in the marketplace. For instance, if I need a fire pit, I’d like to be able to search the market place for one rather than having to sit there and refresh the market every thirty seconds waiting for one to pop up. This might also help those who are impatient to move things along a little quicker.
Great At The Beginning, but...
by Jcorgidog on 2018/10/07 14:25
I’ve been playing this game for two years. The early stages of the game are fantastic. Building your city in your image is a lot of fun. Even in the middle stages the player has more options available as experience points grow. The game starts going down hill when you start to build London, Parisian, Tokyo, and worst of all Omega zone buildings. If you want to play for free it becomes ridiculously hard to accumulate items needed to upgrade those buildings. At least with the first three of those type of structures you can choose to bulldoze them and continue building with standard ones. But the damned Omega foundational buildings (ex: the neo bank, storage, etc) CAN’T BE ELIMINATED and take up real estate space on the grid. Then there’s the expansion piece. The more lots you acquire the fewer wheels/exhausts/and tractor blades pop up during the course of play. Building new structures grinds to a halt without new land to build on... unless of course you shell out $$ to buy the needed items. And I don’t want to get into the wars gimmick. Stupid and boring. I’m about ready to delete the game, but I hate to see all my work go down the drain.
Fantastic

Not a game expert, rarely play video games... the other day, it occurred to me that my 6 year old son and 8 year old daughter (who ENDLESSLY design little worlds with blocks, legos, crayons, etc.) might like a game I vaguely remember from childhood. Now we all sit around the iPad together taking turns making our town a little better. The game starts as a free game, and we had fun with that for awhile, and I plopped down a massive 5 bucks to get us building for approximately 6 hours over three or four days. It seems to me that this is more than fair, and my kids are jumping out of their skin to keep going, so my take is that the pay to play model is exactly in balance with this game. Hats off to the program managers and developers of this game, and my family thanks you for a lot of fun times already! We build worlds with blocks, at school, at the ice rink, at the rock climbing wall, the baseball diamond...and now the 4 year old iPad that absorbs this game easily. Great job!
Download Fallout Shelter instead
by Elleington on 2018/07/29 14:50
Classic pay to win or in this case expand. Earning any kind of currency or rare materials is almost impossible in this game. This game is so tightly engineered that it’s almost impossible to accomplish anything (in a fair amount of time) without spending real money. I tried and tested many different currency earning strategies offered by the game (and suggested by developers), but to no avail. I was still short on materials here and low on service production there. The trading system is trash. The only thing that makes it worth while is the fact that so few items are advertised that you can jack up the prices to all your materials and someone will buy them. I even went a step further and played a new game at a slower pace with the same results. With this kind of struggle, I’d rather pay a flat rate for the game than encounter the stress levels this game ensues. I’ve played other “build” simulation games such as Fallout Shelter, and I’ve never seen such monumental money walls as seen in Simcity Buildit. In short, if you want to be stressed out waiting 10 years or strong armed into spending real money to expand your city, this is the game for you. Thanks EA.
Great Game.... However..
by ohgeezblupanda on 2018/11/28 07:13
There needs to be a booster that temporary disables the others team shield even when repairing. My team has lost many games due to the fact the other teams refuse to build their last building remaining under a shield. Then proceed to wait out the clock. In a new update please include a battle booster to make this fair. It’s called WAR for a reason. Yes it’s a strategy, I agree. However it’s pretty lame when it comes to attacks and making the game fun. My team members have grown greatly disappointed that the higher in rank you go this continues to happen. NEW BOOSTERS!!!! Please. Or create a time limit on repairing shields. We all know the time frame of War so it’s only far there be a time limit to rebuild and continue attacks. Something! Anything! Just make the game fair and fun. I appreciate you letting me rant and hope that this issue is resolved. We can’t be the only team dealing with this kind of problem. Thank You, The Upside Down
Sim City meets Freemium Gaming
by dredre2k on 2018/12/27 21:08
I’ve been a long-time fan of the Sim City series, but much of the intelligent, thoughtful gameplay of managing the city that made the game fun in the past has been replaced with a resources trading system and gameplay that’s wholly dependent on you paying into the game to build your city. Between having two currencies (one you earn) and the other that you largely buy, meaningful progress takes days, and you’re constantly encouraged to buy the premium currency to speed up gameplay. The items that constrain gameplay are the commerce stores you set up in your city. Items you need to expand your residential areas take 20 to 30 minutes to produce, and you can only have ONE or each store type. This was enormously frustrating and it caused me to abandon the game for an earlier version, where I actually need to think about things like zoning and tax policy to build a city, rather than pull out my credit card to advance. I would rather pay $15 to get a solid game rather than be slowed down by micro transactions. This was a miss for me in such a fantastic gaming series.

Crashed
by Cool egg!! on 2020/01/25 08:53
The new update crashes a lot! I need to restart it multiple times and it’s so annoying! Please fix this
Tedious at times
by Qwertyduge on 2020/01/25 05:41
Good time passer. Nice that you can choose to play on your own or not. A search or filter for the trade market is greatly needed though.
So many ads now
by jfjirnriskgkwitbbske on 2020/01/25 04:48
So many ads now. You can&#39;t exit the ads either. I won&#39;t be playing this game anymore. If there was a paid version, I&#39;d play that over a forced ad version.
Wouldn’t recommend. Currency is too hard to earn
by crax90 on 2020/01/25 00:35
Been playing for almost a week and it’s become apparent the only way to really advance your city is to pay. I don’t mean buying a starter pack and that’ll get you to be self sustainable. Currency is so expensive, the only way to make decent money for upgrades is to upgrade houses but then you need to keep buying utilities buildings so I’m stuck in a cycle I can’t really shake out of. I wonder if the devs played this game without using their premium currency, I doubt it. It is nice that buildings don’t take time to finish but if you never have enough coins, what’s the point. I think I’m done with this game. Would not recommend it unless you have $100s to throw at it or you don’t mind not progressing at all.
Why
by me738463 on 2020/01/25 00:29
Good game but takes 5 to 10 minutes to load with fast WiFi and won’t usually with cell service 😡very disappointing
Constant Game Crashing
by Corsicanrose on 2020/01/24 23:47
Please do something about the game constantly crashing/freezing since recent updates. iPhone XSMax user here. Tired of having restart phone to play. This isn’t an isolated error. Others are experiencing this a great deal. Check the social media forums.
Fun game but...
by KoopaSlayer92 on 2020/01/24 19:45
The game is a lot of fun but every 5 to 10 mins you are hit with a forced ad that tells you that you can exit the ad at anytime but when I do press to close the ad it still forces me to watch it. I would gladly click and watch ads that specifically rush items being made and stuff but forcing ads on someone while they are playing the game regularly is very annoying. I would consider buying packs on this game but not if it doesn’t take away the forced ads.
Pay to win
by RobotGoodness on 2020/01/24 14:38
Why would I play this? It’s pay to win. It looks great but no way am I sinking cash into this.
Sandbox please!
by bbbass6 on 2020/01/24 05:12
All I request is sandbox, Other than that this a amazing game! Also there’s a up side to sandbox more videos on YouTube for more downloads.
Poor programming
by Insanesupra on 2020/01/24 02:01
Freezes. Makes iPhone and iPad to run hot.
Crashing on current gen iPhone, EA paywall
by Foxof333 on 2020/01/24 01:46
Could be great if it didn’t crash when visiting other cities. A lot. Certain features are blatant cash grabs. Events are poorly designed, more about milking purchases. Another awesome franchise victim to EA punishing its players
Crashing
by Bdentgroup on 2020/01/23 22:44
Game keeps crashing every time I switch to another city
App keeps FREEZING!!
by F a i l on 2020/01/23 17:08
I have gone through 2app updates and the performance of the app has deminished with each update. App will constantly freeze when I move around within a city, or when I move to another region, when someone club chats, during war, etc. please look into the performance!!! I am using iPhone and annoying when I have to constantly shut down the app and reopen. Sometime I do this 5-10 times within 10min span!
Glitches

App crashes
by Spsxl on 2020/01/23 13:18
Not entirely sure how to get information to you guys about this issue but I have an iPhone 11pro. Have been playing SimCity Buildit for a few months now and have had no problems. Now after this recent update, I haven’t been able to play for longer than 5 minutes. The app continues to freeze and sometimes as soon as I open the game it will freeze. Other than this issue, I love the entertainment and some of the new changes. Keep it coming.
My favorite game....disappointed with recent glitches and updates
by A91184 on 2020/01/23 09:47
Since this latest update this monster has shown up. I attacked and defeated him and I am now unable to attack in club wars! We have since finished a war and started another, and I have uninstalled and reinstalled my game twice. I still can’t attack! This is a huge problem given that I am a VP and high ranking member in my club. It also stops me from completing Contest of Mayors tasks involving launching wars. The updates recently (in the past year) have been very glitchy. I have been playing this game since a few months after it launched many years ago. I am extremely frustrated this time and anxiously awaiting another update to fix glitches! Please help!!!!
Free play
by It from me on 2020/01/23 06:34
I feel like there should be free play mode like where you have infinite money or so and so but still able to have your regular city.
Developers..... please read
by Marieski Havasu on 2020/01/23 04:56
I have enjoyed this game for years with no previous issues. However, this last update has caused the game to crash. Every 2-3 minutes the entire screen will lock up. I am using IOS. Thank you.
Great game but
by Eugeeeeene on 2020/01/23 03:38
Hangs randomly every other minute. I have to kill it and start again. Just started happening recently.
Fun game, but buggy
by Guitargeek6298 on 2020/01/23 02:22
I really enjoy the game, but the constant freezing is really irritating. It&#39;s constantly freezing when I switch regions and I have to close the app and restart.
Freezes constantly
by R00M237 on 2020/01/22 23:27
Freezes after 5-10 min of play every time. App won’t even crash. I have to manually close and restart.
Game keeps crashing on iPad
by MelBelle<3 on 2020/01/22 21:44
Lately the game keeps crashing and freezing on the iPad. It’s the only app that does this.
No power
by brosif0035 on 2020/01/22 12:50
My city was doing fine but losing power capacity because more and more homes so deleted all of them and made one big now it is glitched saying no power so no water no power no garbage no sewage.
Good but not...GREAT
by Gerorge washington 1111 on 2020/01/22 12:33
This game is great and all but ever since i had it i have always wanted to re-do my city. Obviously it is not realistic, but neither is using a few pieces of iron to build a huge tower. If you have ever played or seen clash of clans, they have a feature where you can pick up and rearrange all of your buildings and decorations. Something like that would make this game much more fun to me. -Thank you
My opinion

Awesome game
by Dani_ah14 on 2020/01/22 06:21
I love this game but I just wish we could keep small residential buildings and not keeping updating them to skyscrapers
Something’s Changed
by LA2047 on 2020/01/22 04:47
I’ve been playing for years and have really liked this game. It’s a great way to spend time that doesn’t require constant interaction or strategy; you just play it because it’s fun. However sometime in the last couple months EA has done something to this game that has made it frustrating to play, to the point where I’m considering ending it. Here’s why: First (albeit smaller) problem: inflation. What used to take seven tokens to earn, now takes eight. What used to require four tasks to reach, now takes six. Of course if you don’t like it, there’s now the “pay real money to skip the effort” option, which feels a little like they said “let’s make the game rewards a revenue stream.” I could deal with it if the game still operated well, but to be constantly faced with requests to spend real money when things keep glitching is insulting. Second, it locks up suddenly. A LOT. It virtually never used to, now it locks up at least once every single time I play it. Often it does so multiple times until I’m so fed up I just stop playing. Third, it’s got glitches now. For example, one of the districts is one in which half is snowy and the other half is green. Buildings placed on the green side with be colorful and, well, green. Buildings placed on the snowy side will appear white like it’s winter. Suddenly they’re switched: the snowy side is full of green parks and buildings and the green side is full of snow covered buildings. Not all mind you, just several, so each side looks like a green and white checkerboard. Fourth: the icons and text has gotten soooo damned small that it’s almost impossible to read. Seriously. When completing tasks in the mayors challenge one might simply read “launch this war attack” and show a picture of the attack card. But the picture is so stinking small you can’t see what the attack is! And the text when reading anything is minuscule! You know how ridiculous it is to have to hold a magnifying glass up to your iPhone screen to be able to play the game?! Finally, the worst problem: Their help desk. Oh sure, they’re friendly and empathetic; they’re nice and tell you how much they understand. And I thank them for it. But they DO NOTHING about the problems communicated. Not even to suggest when they may fix the issues or a return email saying they’ve identified coding issues and expect to hope to have them resolved with an update in...whenever. No, you send an email and all you get back is some smarmy thing like the villain of the game must be playing tricks and that they’ve made a note and will into it, then... nothing. No update; no correction; no return word. Oh there seems to be noooooo problem with releasing updates for new season challenges in which the best rewards require real money to get, but none seem to address the coding errors that have been showing up ridiculously frequently lately. I don’t know what’s changed and I really don’t want to stop playing but I can’t see continuing playing (and often spending real cash) a game that’s become so infuriating. I’m tired of sending error reports via email because I feel like they now regard me as nothing but a complainer. So I’m hoping if more people read this and have the same problems they too can insist EA does something about it.
There’s some bugs
by L@nceeselhombre on 2020/01/22 03:54
I have this one house that has no water, power, garbage, etc despite my capacity being high enough... Overall a good game though.
Stolen Simcash???
by nightflower101 on 2020/01/22 02:20
I have yet to buy anything with my Simcash, I was looking at some buildings, when all of a sudden my simchash went from 50 to 12. I havent seen anything else change, nor did I see anything new from a store.
Fun Game
by realomegaco on 2020/01/22 01:03
Really fun game, with new buildings constantly being added.

I love this game...but randomly lose progress made. Had storage up to 395 then next week down to 385, then get it back up to 400 then next week randomly down to 390, so frustrating I’m about to quit.
LOVE THIS GAME
by bixballpark on 2020/01/21 22:50
I love this game but after the last recent updates, it keeps on freezing when I travel to different cities. I spend a lot on this game. I hope this gets fixed soon. Thank you!!!

by money cat 37484 on 2020/01/21 00:32
I love this game but there’s one thing I hate about it.its that you need to keep on upgrading and upgrading you buildings.I want a small neighbor hood not a big city.please add a option that says like no more upgrading or stop upgrading. But anyways it’s a good game and have a good day.
AWESOME GAME!
by BHBOSS1068 on 2020/01/21 00:16
This game is amazing! The clubs and challenges are awesome! But some times developing your city can be frustrating sometimes, but otherwise, it’s a really fun game! You should get it!
Best Game Ever!!!
by Donut Girl! 🍩 on 2020/01/20 22:56
I LOVE this game, I am loving this game I literately can’t stay off of it! All in all it’s an amazing game!
Opening directions are incredibly annoying
by nonicknames11111111 on 2020/01/20 20:45
The game stops being fun after you get to into the double digit levels and/or your population over 40,000 because everything costs a lot of Simoleons to build or upgrade. It’s actually comical; the developers really think I’d put my own money down before I’d just stop playing. I don’t want to speak for most people, but when I play this, I only have a few minutes or it’s at the end of a long day. Last thing I want to do is pay some of my own money JUST to enjoy this stupid little mobile game. That in and of itself is enough to make me not want to play it anymore.
Rip off
by Mark the Candy Crush Hater on 2020/01/20 20:04
I went to the game today to find my storage had been reduced by 25!! Complete rip off! This is a money grab! Delete this dishonest game!! Stay away!
India Support Useless
by Frost271 on 2020/01/20 15:54
EAs technical support for this game is based in India. They are non responsive and don&#39;t read the tickets. The language barrier is evident and all they do is copy and past information from the FAQ. The winter update was a disaster and many cities were lost. They are not willing to help in any manner. Very sad from all the money spent. Never again EA!

by hdjdjf iffy on 2020/01/20 00:03
I find myself redownloading this app then delete it again. When it comes to the wars I find it frustrating to rebuild my buildings and upgrade my buildings within a short amount of time.
Rename this SearchCity!
by Phreekenstein on 2020/01/19 19:32
You will spend countless hours searching for items to build your city. When you don’t need an item they are plentiful. When you do need an item, can’t find one anywhere. If you are willing to spend copious amounts of real money to succeed you will do well and enjoy the game. If not, be prepared to search for hours! Good luck, I’m done!
Keeps Crashing
by Tplj1984 on 2020/01/19 16:25
For some reason, SimCity keeps crashing on my device. Every time I load in, it immediately crashes and I can’t play the game. I don’t know why this is happening but I would really like it if this could be resolved. I enjoy this game a lot and now I can’t enjoy the game because I can’t even play. Please if you could do something about this, if you could do it as soon as you can that would be great.
Shame on Apple
by Oh Daddy Oh on 2020/01/19 16:00
It is shameful that Apple gives this editor’s choice. We are averaging about 1 in 4 clubs cheating in club wars and EA does nothing!

I loved this game before then I how do you switch phones. Then I got it again on my phone now well let’s just say one thing it’s good but it won’t let me build any roads every time I try and tap and drag it will only push me away. So I am stuck on this one thing.

Game Keep Crashing
by Knowone7 on 2020/01/19 13:23
The game use to work fine on my iPad Pro, but lately the game started crashing my iPad. I could have a full charge battery and soon as I start the game two minutes later my iPad shuts down as if the battery died. My iPad battery is fine and this only happens when I play SimCity build it. Is there a patch or something to fix the issue? The game works fine as long as my iPad is plugged up charging. However the game shouldn’t drain my iPad battery in two minutes either.
Graphics are excellent but overall gameplay is too slow
by themistokles04 on 2020/01/19 11:29
Playing for sometime now, to expand the main city is extremely difficult. At some stage gameplay will become slow, you have to reach level 25 to unlock new regions and start building in new region since the expansion of the main city is too difficult. Without purchase this game is too slow 😕😪
ugh
by Pinkchampagne8 on 2020/01/19 05:14
why do i have to load an old city when i connect game center or fb. lame. let us connect new cities to old accounts. why can&#39;t we start over? like that&#39;s so stupid and annoying. i just had to delete my new city i&#39;ve been working on for months to connect with game center so i could play with my friend. TRASH.
Facebook issue
by Elitorres814 on 2020/01/19 04:58
I played this on my old phone and I connected to Facebook just after the tutorial but when I got a new phone I played the tutorial over again. Their was no option to connect to Facebook even when I played till level 17. I couldn’t even use the trading building. So now I have to delete sims city
Designed to take your money
by YoLoRYder69 on 2020/01/19 04:58
This game is very fun in the beginning. I would love to keep playing but unfortunately I’m deleting the app because of the way it was designed. It’s made for you to fall behind and have to pay for things when it doesn’t give you enough money. The only way to continue to build is to wait, grow and sell materials over and over and over. Or resort to spending your own money for more sim cash. Like I said very fun game at first but you quickly get to a point where it gets really slow or else forces you to spend your money.
The game keeps freezing

Newest update stinks!
by ChipsMc on 2020/01/18 16:34
The newest update is a mess. The screen keeps freezing up and I’ve had to restart it over and over again. Also, I don’t care about the stupid octopus! How do I get the app to stop bugging me about it?
WOW

Love this game but...
by Iamshadae on 2020/01/18 12:46
Please update app it keeps freezing out of no where. Also give us the option to select multiple things to sale instead of one at a time for example i want to sale cement and sugar but i have to go to the sugar first put that up for sale than go back and put the cement up. I usually only sale when I’m trying to make room for other items i need and i i it have 30 seconds before it disappears.
Fun game but freezes often

by MTalbot95 on 2020/01/18 00:08
This game used to be so much fun to play! I got back into it recently, and now it’s unplayable. Why do I have to watch an ad every minute every time I click on a factory??? It’s so infuriating that good games rely on shoving ads in your face. May have to delete this at this rate.

Have long suspected timers ran artificially slow and now have confirmed after multiple rounds of testing that they do. A 6 minute build actually ends up taking about 6 minutes and 5 seconds. Combine that with all the other artificial manipulation they do to try and make you spend money if suggest looking elsewhere for your gaming entertainment.

Frequently hangs

The latest app update frequently hangs, I have to force quit and restart. I can’t play competitions with a bug like this.
I love this game but needs more stuff, and requires money to do most stuff
by ShadyKylie on 2020/01/17 00:29
I absolutely love this game very fun, but you can enjoy it fully without paying which I don’t really like, plus can you guys add a road system like SimCity 2013 and kind of make it more realistic like that, plus can we zoom in more to the road and the houses and have cheaper maxis majors and other ways to get expansion items, plus the fire stations and hospital and police is kind unrealistic cause most of the street would be covered but one house in the middle wouldn’t which is weird I think you guys should remove that feature and just let us put it not to far from the houses but not on the Same block cause in real towns you don’t have fire stations and hospitals on the same block of the houses
New iPad and can’t hear the game
by Why does it keep re-setting?😡 on 2020/01/16 20:36
Yesterday, I got an iPad mini generation 5. I’ve played this game for years and it’s been awesome building my city. The iPad mini I have though doesn’t have a ringer button, which you need to switch on to hear the game. I’ve gone back in my settings and turned on the ringer, but I still can’t hear the game.

I’ve been playing the game for about a year and enjoy it maybe too much. However, lately I have found the system freezing when I visit other cities and I must delete and reload the app, then go thru the tutorial before I can reload my game. It happens frequently.

Season IV, yassss, brainstorming ideas
by I want to support this game on 2020/01/16 06:10
Excited for season 4! And throwing out some suggestions: I like the Vu pet monster event (watching the animation and the rewards). I wish that could become a permanent thing. Maybe make it like the Vu tower (if you activate certain items, it’ll attract different kinds of monsters to the city)? You can add more Vu items to the inventory (cakes, fruits, etc.). But if you do that, please, please, please let us expand our city storage to 1000 or something. 😅🙏 And instead of just keys rewards, we can also get war items/cards/simeoleons. Love what you guys did with the water, the glossy reflection is a really nice touch. Could we have some more landscaping (bridges, topiaries, duck pond, jumping fishes) - just throwing out some ideas. Another idea I’m throwing out: another region perhaps? Rainforest or Coastal lagoon would be great regions with a lot of diversity for items/ideas. Keep the seasons coming, and I’ll keep buying passes 😁🥰👍

No progress without paying
by robbyp82! on 2020/01/15 23:02
This game is a lot of fun if you’re willing to dump A LOT of cash. The only way to get simonoles (sim cash) is to sell resources or buy it. You get dozens and hundreds of cash for selling resources but need tens of thousands to make progress. It is structured for you to be unsuccessful if you don’t pour money into it. Example: you need to upgrade your residential areas to get less than $1k. You need $25k-$50k to sustain the residential upgrades with roads, fire, police, parks etc. So for every $1k you get in upgrades you need 20x that to sustain so, you’re set up to lose under you drop cask daily/weekly. Save your time and your money. Game lets you successfully manage for a few days then changes. You could be patient and wait a few weeks to buy a necessary service but, your population would be 0 by then. Save your money...I’d rather pay $50 for the real game and test my management skills than you waste time and money I’m this money pit.

There is a problem with Club Chat when i Tell the Club That i want to start a War in the Game By saying Lets Kick Butt. But instead The game says “Let’s Kick &amp;%#. “ does that seem a good idea. I just thought you guys should Know. Sincerely Meghan Mullozzi.

To advance you’ll have to spend real money
by heavenshome on 2020/01/15 22:03
I’ve been playing this app now for several days. I initially loved it but quickly became agitated from repeatedly viewing icons telling me what to purchase in order for the icons to disappear. I was attempting to collect coins to purchase a school which is $40,000. Like someone really has that many coins when first starting to play. I didn’t even get to $21,000 when more icons started popping up telling me that I needed to build police stations, waste and garbage buildings and transportation buildings. Needless to say, it is overwhelming and I’m unable to keep it going without having to spend real money so I may end up just deleting the app unfortunately
Fun game!
by killemall222 on 2020/01/15 20:02
It’s a fun game with many team-coop aspects. It would be nice to be able to see how many of an item you have when in another city’s market. It would also help to be able to disable startup &amp; vu animations.
What’s happened?
by Tatum D. on 2020/01/15 18:19
Yeaaaaa you know I’ve put countless days, weeks, months, even years into my city in this game. It used to be so cool collecting taxes, providing healthcare to people, etc. It was truly an awesome mobile city simulator. But it’s just going downhill. A lot of nonsense has been added like the disasters and the hero stuff, and now a killer octopus? No. I put this game down with great sorrow after it’s been a big part of my life, and hope someday another city sim will come without a bunch of dumb childish add add-ons.

Forget It
by Monstevr on 2020/01/14 19:05
I did the math and the way the new Mayors’ Pass is set up (every couple tiers, the tier costs thousands more points to clear), I will have neither time nor money to finish it, so why even bother? Why play the game anymore? I hope I’m not the only big whale this game is scaring away. I genuinely hope that I am one of at least thousands saying “forget it”. EA’s Greed has reached mythic proportions and I’m so ready for their whole model to implode under the singular weight of their avarice and hubris. Enough is enough. (Or they could just tweak it so that the Mystery Scrapyard costs like a fifteenth of the points it costs now, and save themselves.) POINT OF CLARIFICATION: This game is so suddenly repulsive to me that I won’t even be renewing my Daily SimCash subscription. UPDATE! Something that’s been happening for at least a few years is that I’ll receive a notification that an offer (like for a special building or whatever) is “about to expire,” so I tap on it to take advantage of the last hour of the offer, only to discover that the offer expired WHEN I RECEIVED THE NOTIFICATION. I NEED ONE HOUR FROM THE RECEIPT OF THE NOTIFICATION TO THE ACTUAL FORETOLD EXPIRATION. This is the absolute minimum of what is acceptable. Failure to meet these basic criteria is tantamount to an F- in Business 101, because despite all the other bridges this game has burned for me, I am still willing to pay for special buildings if I’m able to just dump SimCash on it and know that I’m not embroiling myself in some nonsense gacha scenario or some conditional winning a special building if I defeat another player or whatever. I’m all about instant gratification and collecting different buildings, and I couldn’t care less about ruining other people’s experience. I also don’t have a ton of time to devote to scheduling around this GAME ON MY PHONE. Anyway, I’m a whale, and a company as greedy and disgusting as EA should get less perverse delight about specifically driving me away from their game that would be awesome if they gave it to humans to manage. Garbage.
Drains battery so fast
by Joüber on 2020/01/14 04:41
I like the game, but the game just drains my phone’s battery so fast - 16 minutes of gameplay and my battery charge went down 5%, its ridiculous. My battery is new, and its only this app that drains my phone’s battery that fast.
Amazing Game
by DireFuture6 on 2020/01/13 23:14
I love this game. It is amazing how you can build ur city in what ever way you want! One problem. I have a small sewage pipe that is polluting an area. The problem is I can’t get rid of it because is has a task on it. Plz make it so you can bulldoze it any way, or be able to change where the task pops up. That’s all. This game is awesome btw. Highly Recommend

Good game but frustrating
by Teslamodel3xd on 2020/01/13 03:29
I hate the fact how things are so expensive and also the land is so annoying to expand with these rare items like come on. I also hate the fact how you have a very small plot of land which is very annoying as well this game also needs to have a better system. I had to reinstall this game because everything was so messed up now I have to restart from level 17 back to 0
Fun, but long!
by Colebutler1995 on 2020/01/13 03:05
I enjoy the game very much so, but the thing I disagree with is that you can not rotate park and other building to fit the best way necessary to cover all the building. Also, I have found that it is taking forever to level up and advance through the game. Specially when it comes to saving up for coins or even bills. I am not going to pay real money to buy the add on building and everything. Would like it if the developers would do another update to make it easier for young mayors like me.
Very Enjoyable- PLEASE CONSIDER NEW FEATURES COMMENTED
by Incite3 on 2017/09/19 04:25
I really enjoy this game however there are some things i believe many players would agree would help if were available: 1. It would be nice you are able to look at your storage items when in another city. Sometimes i am looking for several items and since we are limited on time we cannot so easily go back to our city check what we need then go back to the city to buy any other items that are convenient. 2. I am usually in a hurry especially when it comes to challenges or when there is just too many items at the store i need. Having the option of popping a random bubble in another city really close to their store would save a lot of time. 3. It would also save a lot of time if it would just go straight to the city once it loads instead of slightly rotating around for a bit before you can look around or select anything within the city. 4. It would also be very very nice if there was a way of selecting only the items you need at a time in out factories. For example: I collect 5 items from my factory i need the 5th item but i cannot receive it unless i sell or use something in order to get the 5th item because i only have space for 4 more items when i could maybe for example hold the factory to move, or bulldoze, double tap to collect all items at the same time and tap it once to select the items i need first. I believe many players would agree if these features existed it would make the game more enjoyable!
Frustrating
by mancyness on 2017/10/14 02:21
I really like this game and I want to keep playing, but it is so frustrating. Firstly, expanding your land is so difficult. You need certain items and the game rarely gives you these items and you have about a 1% chance of finding them for sale from other players. Then, expanding your city storage is frustrating. The game gives you a ton of those items right up until you almost have enough, and then it just stops giving them to you. The game tries so hard to make you spend real money, and honestly Id feel better if I just never downloaded it. I want to play this game but I cant expand my territory without paying 24 simcash for EACH upgrade item!! Ridiculous!! I actually broke down and paid 2.99 to get 200 simcash, and it was only barely enough for one expansion, including the items I already had. Seriously this game is ridiculous!! Earning money hasnt even been the problem for me at all, like some other reviewers have said. To earn money you just have to produce and sell a lot. That is easy and feasible, and pretty fun as well. But expanding your city is difficult and frustrating. To the developers.. Please make it easier to expand!! Edit: The clubs are a cool idea, but there is no point in having them or the wars if I cant find a club that is active. Every club I join has like one post a week. I would like to participate in the wars, but I have been unable to find an active club that will allow me to do so.
Love the game, but some changes can be made.
by ghjsfujffjoomvxs on 2018/07/23 18:34
This is a great game! I love the club wars and the challenges. My city is at level 50 now, and it’s totally fun. You get to build buildings, and you can get other, special limited time buildings from the city challenges and other things too. But to expand now I have to get 20 of each item. It’s hard to get the items, eventually you’ll have to pay real money for them, so it would be nice to make them easier to obtain. Maybe at a certain point it just costs a certain amount to expand every time. It would also be nice if your city could expand more. Also, make it so there are limitless expansions. You would still need the items to expand, but like I said before, maybe stop raising the expansion cost after around maybe 20 of each item. They take up a lot of space along with being hard to obtain. Besides that, I would suggest adding weather to the game. You can see the temperature and the forecast. Maybe you can make holidays for your city to celebrate. Maybe people get injured in the weather, and you can upgrade your hospitals to take more patients. It would be cool to add snowplows that go around your city. Also, add a feature that shows how environmentally considerate your city is and healthy it is too. Maybe the more parks, mountain, beach and entertainment specialization&#39;s you have your sims health improves. Those are all my suggestions. I would highly recommend this game, it’s super fun!
Good,but frustrating!!!!!
by Iluvekats on 2018/11/23 13:08
I really enjoyed playing this game, but feel that a few items should be changed about the game. I think that if you put an item for sale you should be able to spend coins or dollars to take the item down and keep the item. I also think it would be nice if we could trade omega items with others. My main issue with this game is when it comes to having a war with another group. There seems to be a new strategy going around, which while brilliant, it’s frustrating and makes me not want to play. Team 1 goes in and bombs team 2 quickly, therefore accumulating a lot of war points quickly. Team 2 retaliates, but maybe they don’t have as many members, so they can’t put up as many war points as quickly. Team 1 is completely bubbled and doesn’t ever unbubble. So team 1 is going to win because they refuse to unbubble, and team too just has to sit there and wait. I understand that it is “war “ but this is happening every time I play, and it’s to the point where I don’t even want to go to war with my group anymore. Can’t you make it so that we either have to pay a penalty if we stay bubbled after a certain amount of time or you automatically have to unbubble after so many hours? Just in the name of fairness this would be a great option. Again I understand it’s a game, and it’s a great strategy, but it’s been used way too much and it’s ruining the game for me.
Ok game, some problems (please read)
by rossco the cat on 2019/04/13 00:07
I got this game when my mom started talking about how she used to be obsessed with it, and after I saw her playing it. I can spend hours making things to upgrade my buildings, and even longer trying to do challenges and cargo shipments... and, well, you get the point. I use the global trade HQ all the time, and I like how they added export HQs for the other regions so that there’s multiple ways to earn lime simoleons and other currencies like that. However, I do wish there was one other way to earn sim cash. I barely ever spend any, and have been saving them for a while, but I still don’t have that much. I know that there’s already a lot of ways to earn them, but I feel like at least once a couple days there’s a option to earn them by making a bunch of materials in a hour or something like that. Or, at least, make it a little more common to get simcash from watching videos. Speaking of which, there’s something that really bugs me. You see, sometimes when I watch a video, it doesn’t give me a reward. And no, I’m not talking about when one of the three boxes are empty. Sometimes the option to pick from them doesn’t come up, which is frustrating after I’ve spent time watching a ad. I feel like that’s one thing that definitely needs to be fixed.
Algorithm Updates
by ring_zero on 2017/10/15 20:49
Success in this game requires heavy use of the Global Trade to find things to buy. SimCity has always used algorithms to determine what is offered to you to buy. For example, if you need specific items to upgrade a building, SimCity will filter these items out of the Global Trade, requiring you to spend even more time trying to find them. Eventually, perhaps after about 30 minutes of searching, the algorithm might allow one or two to appear. On the other hand, if you don&#39;t need a particular item, that item is much more likely to appear to buy. If you don&#39;t need them and already have several of them in your inventory, they are even more likely to appear. If you have some items, like hamburgers, for example, up for sale yourself, then dozens of them will appear on the Global Trade for you to buy because the algorithm has determined you are unlikely to need them. In this way, the algorithm modifies items on the Global Trade so that high demand always equals low (or nonexistent) supply and low demand always equals high supply. SimCity updates these algorithms in most patches. This latest patch has caused even low demand items to not appear on the Global Trade. I don&#39;t know exactly what was done, but now nearly all of the time I am offered about 7 different things. This prevents players from stocking up on items for future demand. Hopefully this gets fixed in the next update.
Good game but some things need to be fixed.
by Avidrailroader57 on 2018/09/30 06:44
I’ve been playing this game for a few years now and I like seeing all the mew exciting changes. However, I find it so difficult to expand my city and city storage. Especially when I need to collect these items that take forever to get all and take up half of my city storage. Also, please make the Global Trade HQ easier to use by adding a search bar for the thing you need, not having to wait 30 seconds and hope the item you need will appear. Please add an option to stop upgrading buildings. I don’t need a thousand skyscrapers in my city. It doesn’t look realistic. I really like the idea of the regional cities but there are a few things that should be worked out. One: Why is it if I have three regional homes and one regular home, the demand for any service is seven? Shouldn’t it be four like in the capital city. Two: Why can’t we place the other commercial building in out regional city instead of having to travel back and forth to get supplies. The same applies to factories. Three Can we get some sort of city hall or town hall to be able to collect more of the regional currency. Finally, I would like to be able to choose a name for my regional city instead of calling it Cactus Canyon or one of the other names.
Wonderful game!
by Snowstorm9595 on 2019/06/16 13:29
i really enjoy this game so far. i’ve only had it for around 2 days, but i’m already on level 13! i love how it doesn’t take time for the building upgrades to finish, for it only takes from 5-20 seconds in a stunning time-lapse process. you also don’t have to pay for main road extensions, which is great for players and awfully realistic for this kind of game. i also enjoy the fact that EA took great measure to ensure that their game had an accurate representation of pollution in several of the buildings, such as the Coal Power Plant or the Factories. they also included population, which efficiently helps upgrade your city. i’d also like to point out the Simoleons you obtain from residential upgrades is very realistic, as more people pay taxes for the mayor and the government. i know i’ve been pointing out everything i adore about this game, but truly, in my opinion, there’s nothing wrong with this game. one more thing- the thought bubbles above the buildings. some will give you efficient store items if clicked, some give you compliments, and some notify you they’re not getting power, water, sewer outflow, etc. i really believe Electronic Arts did an exquisite job with this game. i’d love to see more games as time goes on!
Ridiculous In-App purchases
by AFlame101 on 2019/01/02 04:38
Overall I did enjoy some aspects of this app. As an aspiring architect I downloaded this game expecting the whole “you have to pay to get this exclusive building” with a few buildings. But here’s the thing. Almost EVERY nice building/placeable item is expensive. Not to mention the cash in game is RIDICULOUSLY expensive. 50$ for like 2900 cash? Yeah no thanks. Plus, it is almost impossible to gain the larger and more eco friendly factories/power/water etc. Also, in the beginning they do not tell you about any of the fire stations and stuff you need later on, so I went about my game until I realized I had to redesign my entire city to place one fire station in. I ended up redownloading the game and starting all over. I just think it’s extremely dumb to have levels in this game? And have to expand your city land? With items that I almost never get??! It’s insanity! The only good thing about this game is designing a city. But they make it so hard - and the buildings are too expensive for the amount of coins normal players have. I’m not going to spend 500$ to buy a non-pollution power plant. I don’t want to spend money on this game. Maybe if it was better designed and didn’t have levels i would. But until something is done about the cash/coin problem, I don’t recommend this game. However it is a good way to waste 7 hours to upgrade a house that only gives you like 200 coins :)
Needs two More Features
by Mastergeko4 on 2018/08/01 21:21
I Love this game and the concept of it. I enjoy playing and it’s a good game to play when your bored. There’s only one thing I wish you could add. I remember playing Clash of Clans and you had the option to create 3 different layouts of your built city. For example, I would like to be able to experiment with different city layouts without having to ruin my primary city layout or I would like to be able to build an entirely new city with the stuff I already have. Another feature that I would like to have is the ability to search any item that your looking for on the global trade HQ. It’s incredibly infuriating when I can’t find the things I need and I hope you can change it and add a search bar to search all the listings of the thing you need. Because I noticed that there is this Filtration system that filters out things you need. And it doesn’t play Dumb either. I Mean it will Literally Filter out things that you need to make the ITEMS that you need! I mean seriously?!?! Your making the Global Trade HQ HELL ON EARTH! Please do something about this! These are features that I would love to have and I hope you could consider adding these features in the future!
Enjoy the game...
by I haste in the shower on 2019/12/12 23:39
Been playing now for a year and a half. I enjoy the game every day and look forward to growing my city. However, I would like to see some improvements: please change the statements for my citizens&#39; opinion bubbles(seeing the same ones all the time is boring); I wish there was a comprehensive way to see a breakdown of all my cities&#39; buildings by type, population, latest update date, etc; and although I enjoy the Mayoral Contests, I find it very difficult to finish in the top ten even though I only complete the assignments that have the highest point value. I understand that spending real money to finish higher in the standings is probably necessary(and even rewarded with higher point total assignments) however some mayors&#39; point totals above me seem impossible for me to obtain without some kind of hacking of the game and that possibility makes me question even participating in future Mayoral Contests. Why spend real $$ trying to beat a cheater!!!&#34; So now it is December 2019 and I am having problems after upgrading Mayors Pass Season 3. I cannot get into the game because I’m kicked out before my city appears. I have asked for an explanation and am told that “the team” is working on a solution. 3 days later I’m still waiting. Boiler plate responses and apologies just don’t do the trick. I have completed all updates of iOS, force-quit the app and reinstall the app but still nothing.
Enjoyable until it asks for things you can’t get
by Bellocinodeoro on 2018/12/12 03:11
I downloaded this game because it seemed very similar to the DOS version of SimCity I used to play many years ago. The first part of the game was very exiting and I really enjoyed building homes and roads and factories. And getting my city to grow. I was on the phone at any moment I could. The more I did the more requirements kept me pumped up. But it gets to a point when I started to get into Mayor contests and it starts asking for wars between cities. That makes this too complicated for what I am willing to play. Also the building upgrades requests items that I cannot produce or buy like a sweater or bread. Then the upgrades requests things that take 5 or more hours to make turning it hardly impossible to complete the task without being stuck to the phone practically all day. I think a game like this should allow the user to play at leisure. I don’t have time to dedicate only to a game. I would love a game that stays simple and keeps me engaged. Microsoft had a game called Age of empires that kept me going up to the end because tasks where hard but possible. The same i would say for the first version of Starcraft. For that reason I am deleting the app from my phone. I gave it 3 stars because the game is well designed. And it gave me pleasure before it gave me frustrations.
Love the game!
by Tank<>hero_555 on 2018/08/17 22:50
I love this game! I re-downloaded it a while ago and have since progressed my city to level 30 and amassed over 505,000 people. It has beautiful graphics, simple gameplay, and its just fun and honestly has almost a calming effect to it :) One feature I wish they would add is a sort of View mode where it would hide all the thought bubbles and construction bubbles and items so you could just view and admire your city as if you were visiting it. Expanding on that idea I think it would be awesome if they also added a ‘street view’ like you might use in Google Maps or something where you could pick a point and then have simple arrow controls to glide around using your streets (and possibly boardwalk for those of us who are level 15+) as a sort of track and you could just look around your city from the perspective of living in it. Also I think it would be neat to have a weather or changing climate based on random selection or that could sync with your local weather (Of course some players might want to be able to toggle this option on and off so probably best to add a toggle button in settings) Again, love the game and thank you for your consideration. 😄
Predatory App Design
by Fixthedicerandomization on 2018/07/27 20:17
The bottom line is that this game has been engineered so tightly that the only way to advance or accomplish anything is to spend actual money. Any attempt to intellectually feel out the game’s possibilities will only lead to the discovery of a 30ft invisible pay wall firmly constructed at your city’s borders. This pay wall cannot be penetrated, although it can be slowly and meticulously expanded by grinding it out and collecting meager taxes from you citizens. This wouldn’t actually be that bad if there were more freedoms such as terraforming or choosing your climate (such as existed in previous mobile versions). In this game, you start off and continue to tend your city in the same pre fabricated terrain and climate as all of the other thousands of people who downloaded the game. The direction EA has gone is especially sad for SimCity, because the mobile market is where this game really could have survived into the next decade, but with lackluster PC offerings I have a feeling this franchise is just about dead. It looks like they will try to ride the last little wave by providing a cookie cutter sandbox, soft shapes and bright colors and the thinking, or lack thereof, to go along with it. I’m sure I’ll just be overlooked as the “curmudgeon” that likes those old boring “complicated” games in which you have to do ALL that thinking, but this is just disappointing. This game is a one or two week deleter taking up valuable space on my device.
SimCity
by 59,&;'enddjskworkfjcj on 2019/08/29 21:02
SimCity is an alright game, I would easily have given it 5 stars, but there are just too many flaws. The biggest being money. The game tries way too hard to get you to spend money on the game. First, expanding land is nearly impossible the further in the game you get, and can take a solid month just to expand a little bit. Then they try to get you to spend like 20 dollars on expansion equipment that won’t even be enough to expand. It’s ridiculous. Another flaw that just bothers me is how you can’t search for specific items in the shop. They’ll give you challenges where you need a surplus of supplies, nearly all of which you don’t have, and you can’t even find them in the shop. All you can find is the most expensive item from your level that you never need. One last flaw is when you try to upgrade your buildings. It used to be reasonable and still a challenge to upgrade where the first bronze upgrade cost 10 of those stars. They recently changed it to 40, and I have been unable to get it every time and just loose loads of money. To get that you’d need to be on the game 24/7, it’s b.s.. Before I wrote this review I actually had this game at 4 stars, but remembering everything that annoys me actually brought it down. Please fix some of these problems
Needs fixes and update
by Kimburrr_462 on 2017/12/13 07:45
Okay first I’ll say, when producing items for the snowflakes, it’s Extremely frustrating when you spend time buying and making items and then start producing the items for the snowflake, and then all of a sudden the snowflake changes to a different item out of nowhere. Second. There should be a way to add friends, without using Facebook. My Facebook is used for professional use and I do not want to create another just for a game. I have come across other cities through groups I would like to keep as my friend but I can’t because they aren’t my Facebook friends and that is a bummer. Third. There should be a way to access our personal inventory while in someone else’s city, so we know what we have and can compare it to what we need. Besides that I will say this is a very fun and addictive game. I have been playing the sims games since the started on the PC version, I play sim city and free play and enjoy them both a lot. With a few fixes and updates I would easily change to a five star rating. Hope you guys take our feed backs seriously as I have seen others say the same thing I’m saying and then some!
Great time passer
by justlikewildfire on 2018/04/29 15:24
This game is a great way to pass some time and I’m sure it’s enjoyable to casual players, but I play the club wars and am trying to expand what I can as fast as I can and I find it frustrating. I’m not sure what algorithm you use to determine what we see in the global trade hq, but it’s always 80% spices, 19% basic supplies like wood and metal, and 1% what I actually need. Then, by the time I load the city to go buy what I need, it’s already gone! This is frustrating when I am on a time crunch with shipments (especially for war) and the item I am looking for takes 20+ minutes to craft. Additionally, it’s frustrating that you have sewage and power and factories and stuff all making pollution, but you have to go to their individual categories and try to picture the sum total of all the pollution to determine how to build. It would be nice to see an option for a total pollution overlay. I also get annoyed that there is not an easy way to see the inventory (unless you are in your city and go to the storage building) or see what war attacks you have and items you need for them (without going into the war screen, which causes you to leave your city, and then go through two sub menus).
Great game-for a while
by Jason Thomas Gross on 2018/03/11 05:37
This is a neat throwback to SimCity on Windows, which I spent hundreds of hours playing back in the day. So of course I gave this a shot. The gameplay does not disappoint, it’s a very nice system that works. The trading feature is great and it seems that the mechanics (engine?) work very well.. for example, it’s easy to see and address the needs of the city. My issue is that, like most games on the AppStore, when you get to a point, progress seems to slow down unless you start paying real money for things. I’d rather pay $5-$10 for a solid app that has everything you need to play without spending anymore real cash, unless you want an expansion pack or something. I’m sure there are others who swear they can have a huge successful city without spending a dime, but when I’m struggling to get the city running, only to suddenly have to “upgrade the roads”, it’s a bit aggravating. I give it 4 stars because it is truly a great game at its core, but the whole “spending money to play” gimmick is tiring. Remove the IAPs (except for things like expansion packs) and I’m sure people will gladly pay for this addicting and fulfilling game.
Ads are ridiculous!
by Hawkeyeboots on 2019/02/12 13:18
I love this game but the new update means you get ads constantly when trying to build items in your factories. Since that is a critical part of the game, I am forced to watch ads pretty much every other time I try to build resources. It’s enough to make me want to quit the game altogether because it just isn’t fun anymore. I’m a high level player and have had the game for years. I don’t mind watching ads for bonuses or to speed things up, but this is so ridiculous. ***update*** Ads are still annoying. I think they tried to fix how often they pop up but I really think it’s ruining the game. I don’t want to watch 60 seconds of an ad to speed up something that takes 60 seconds. 🙄 I’ve already lost one of my best club members because of this and I’m seriously thinking of quitting myself until they sort this out. It’s especially frustrating because even if you try to exit the ad, a second one pops up that you aren’t able to close. The other annoying thing is that it is pretty much impossible now to get the resources you need to expand. You used to be able to earn them by watching optional videos, which meant people were regularly selling them in the market. Now it’s basically impossible to earn them without spending money and no one ever has enough of them to sell them off. Such a bad move by the developers.
Why am I still playing?
by no1knowsme on 2019/01/31 00:16
I’ve been a fan of all the “Sim” games for a while and was stoked to find a smart phone version. The game starts off slow and as you race to build your city hoping for more excitement, you’ll find its always just mildly entertaining. My biggest complaint is the cost of some of the content they try and sell you, sometimes a single building can run about $20. If you bought most of the special buildings they offer, you would spend hundreds every year which I think is absolutely outrageous for a free game with little to offer. You might as well spend $50 and buy the computer version, you’ll be much happier and you won’t be constantly pestered to watch ads or buy extremely overpriced content. My second complaint is the new war system. I thought they finally added something of value to this game, but I was very wrong. The club wars are long, tedious and boring, most clubs I’ve faced choose to hide behind shields for most of the 24hr attack phase coming out right at the end to try and just one up your score. During most club wars, I find myself staring at the war lobby for hours on end waiting to attack someone. I’m not sure why they give you 24hrs to attack when most of the excitement takes up maybe an hour. If you’re considering downloading this game in hopes to satisfy some old school sim city action, look elsewhere.
Frustrating w/ no more assignments & golden tickets rule
by yankeesKat22 on 2018/09/03 05:28
I love the game, but when it comes to the assignments, I get frustrated when I run out of assignments and have plenty of golden tickets &amp; they ONLY allow you to use 5 of them. Why can’t you use more than that if you have more?? So all the hard work I put in to get my score up high, but still have over a day left to play and all the hard work was for nothing. I was at least going to qualify for a prize, then I watched my score on the leaderboard drop below the “no prize” line. That to me is unfair. When you have enough golden tickets to buy more assignments, you should be able to use them. What else are they good for? You should at least raise the limit higher to the individual player’s amount of golden tickets. So if one player has only 5, then of course that player’s limit is 5. But if another player has 10, that player’s limit is 10. If another player have 20, that player’s limit is 20, and so forth.. Every player should make their own decision on how many golden tickets they want to use per assignment. If they use them up all in 1 day, that’s their choice, or if they want to use only 1 a day, again that’s their choice. The no more assignments with the golden tickets rule, needs to change ASAP!! Thank you.
So fun but the update drives me bonkers
by Leighbaum on 2019/02/14 11:11
So I have really enjoyed playing this game. However my biggest frustration is the update for ads. I don’t mind the ability to click on ads in order to get stuff. But I highly dislike that in the production setting it automatically starts an add to speed up the process of production. I think it’s a neat feature but I hate that I can’t click out of ads most the time and that it speeds up thinks like metal which only take a min to build and then the ad pops up for 30 seconds. I feel like it’s a waste. I also feel like they pop up too often and it rips me out of the game if I’m trying to produce a lot of metal and other short time items. I like the bubble ads that I can click on and they give me options. So maybe thats a better ideas. Like after you go to click off production, instead of automatically launching an ad, ask if they’d like to speed up production by watching an ad. I would be much more inclined to watch one on the long production items if it was a choice and I wasn’t forced to watch them. But half the time you can’t close the add until it’s basically over anyway.
What else can I say?
by BrendanDobbs on 2018/05/28 04:23
When I first got the job to play this game and set up this review I was thinking why in the world would Sims make a mobile game about building your own city? In the PC Sims game the games are about building houses and putting family’s that you control in your house and MAKING SURE THEY DONT DIE which at times can put a lot of stress on you but the fun type of stress not the kind that makes you go OMG I’m so stressed out but the kind that makes one go OMG I’m so stressed out... You get what I mean? Anyways it seemed ridiculous that the people at Sims would want to make a game that’s about putting down buildings and that being that... but I was wrong the satisfaction of you making your own city and it looking like an actual city is in a way truly magnificent and satisfying. I’m the game you can join mayors clubs which are groups of people that make there own club in the game and than do “Club Wars” so they can destroy other people’s city’s... how could that be any better. So there is so much more in this game that you can do and I strongly suggest you should get the game. I’m Brendan Dobbs from GG Games and I give this game 4 stars congratulations.
Loved it up until a few days ago :-(
by Miss Mylin on 2017/09/10 02:03
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this game. I&#39;m not usually into these types of games whatsoever, but this is SO ADDICTING! Up until a few days ago I had no real complaints, however, lately my sim cash seems to keep vanishing. The first time I thought I pressed something by accident and made a purchase I couldn&#39;t figure out. Now it&#39;s happened again and I&#39;m completely bummed! The first time I went from over $62 in sim cash to about 9 or 10... then I just got up to around $42 and it dropped down to $10! It may not seem like much to some, but sim cash is hard to come by and it took a while to earn that. I know it&#39;s just a game but it helps me relieve so much stress when I get a moment to myself to relax, and the game should be fair... I&#39;m not sure if anyone else is experiencing this but I hope this gets fixed. It&#39;s bothersome enough to make me delete the game. It takes away from the fun and makes it not worth the time or effort put into the game when you can just lose something you put so time into it. Please fix this! For some reason, I no longer get epic projects. Can someone fix this?
Needs New Marketplace
by Fozznaut on 2017/12/19 08:30
Overall, it is well done. However, the game developers should really consider the marketplace feature. Currently, you must wait 30 seconds for a random selection of items to appear. More often than not the items that appear are the same items all priced at the highest market value. This makes it incredibly difficult to find particular items that are more rare. A true marketplace where I could search for the item I want to purchase would not only make life in the game a bit easier, it would also allow for true economic principles to take shape: pricing strategies. If it is a rare item the salesman can sell it at a high price, and if it is common and you want to sell it more quickly then price it lower. Having a screen with all the cities selling a particular item would allow the player to price shop for their item, and make it so the player doesn’t have to stare at their phone for 30 minutes praying a particular item randomly appears in the trade HQ only to be snagged by someone else .5 seconds before.
Best Game EVER
by KristenDaRay on 2018/12/19 02:19
I’ve always been a hardcore simmer. And build it is amazing for a mobile platform game. It has soooo much that you can do and the developers put a lot of work into it. They also listen to the players and continue to improve the game as we play. I’ve seen complaints about expansion items and the rarity of certain other items, but honestly I have not had these issues. Sure I could get them quicker if I paid real cash, but I get them just fine through other sources. That’s something else I love. This game is not ridden with ads. There are ad bubbles that you can choose to click on and watch which will give you mystery items. And I LOVE THAT. I’m not forced to watch an ad but I get rewarded when I do willingly. My only complaint would be to allow us to collect some sort of tax on our regional cities. Those can be hard to develop with out strong ways to earn regional money. At least if the game asks for items for sale, sell them for more than just a few regional money. Most items are just 3-4 regional money.
Used to love this game. Buyers beware of temporary prizes for real money
by JenJ09 on 2019/09/08 14:26
I really loved playing this game at first. But then you realize they almost force you to send money to be able to compete properly. I don’t mind spending some money here or there. I had a big problem when they didn’t clearly state prior to purchase that storage was temporary and took storage away. I tried to complain and they did not care that I paid real money for something that was taken back. It was not clearly stated and they didn’t even care to meet me half way. They don’t want hackers in their game but then they punish players who spend real money. How is it a policy to make ANYTHING temporary that you pay real money for? They have this tiered approach to storage and expansions. You have to increasingly save more spaces just to gain the same 5 storage spots. At times, at higher levels, you are basically saving 75 to 100 storage spaces at a time if you are saving for everything. It takes forever to earn the items too. It is a big deal when 20 spaces are taken back from a player. It is wrong and the way they treat their players who feed their business and it makes me not want to play anymore. I have been a long time SIMS player and I am so disappointed in the company.
Too much of a grind
by marcusdiddle on 2018/01/16 23:47
Downloaded this game when it was featured as the app of the day. The prospect of building a city, laying out buildings, creating roads, etc seemed enjoyable and something I could do in my spare time without getting too involved. I generally enjoyed it at first. But to be honest, it just became far too much of a grind. There’s a heavy emphasis on purchasing credits to be able to do or speed up anything. I was determined to not actually spend real money on the game in the form of micro-transactions. Honestly if the game were just $10 and then you can build away however you like, I’d probably love it. But I ultimately ended up deleting it. When you have to build items in a factory, so you can in turn build a shovel, so you can then grow some grass, so you can then upgrade a residence, and before you know it you wound up waiting a collective two hours just for that grass, and then you find out that to upgrade the building again, you need two chairs, which means you need to make two hammers....ugh, just a pain at that point and the game lost enjoyment for me. It was fun for a few minutes, got to level 19, but it grew old...
Starts awesome but then becomes irritating.
by mp3j-totesky on 2019/09/08 04:56
Developers of this game seem to have forgotten why we play simcity; building stuff and managing town issues like water, electricity, schools and traffic. At start the game is awesome, you get to do all that stuff and build things with materials created on you own factories. But then it starts asking for more and more stuff you cannot manufacture to the point you cant expand land, build anything or even upgrade any building, there is always something you don&#39;t have that prevents you from doing everything. And so, you end on the global market hq waisting hours on end trying to unsuccessfully get the stuff needed, until you are bored out of your mind, And if by some miracle you do find what you are looking for, chances are that your warehouse is full, and it requires other stuff you don’t have to increase its capacity, which, of course, you can’t find either, more wasted hours on market. Solution to this problem is always buying stuff with real money, quite expensively I might add. I understand the need to make money, but I rather pay for some version of simcity classic that I could enjoy indefinitely than continue stuck on this games global market hell. It just becomes unplayable after a while. :(
Blatant hacks and inept developers
by OriginalGamer89 on 2019/07/04 11:41
I give this game two stars instead of one because it can be fun and challenging when competing with other legitimate cities. Unfortunately, EA/Track Twenty have devoted woefully inadequate resources to combat hacking; giving rise to a group of hackers who are the most brazen I have seen in over 25 years of gaming. They literally have their own discord channels and aren&#39;t too careful about hiding what they&#39;re about. What does this mean for you? Mayors contests are dominated by players with scores that are mathematically impossible, and club wars are overrun with teams with cards that aren&#39;t yet achievable even to those who spend tens of thousands of dollars (let that sink in on its own; some actually spend at that level and still can&#39;t keep up). If such obvious hacks are reported (even by dozens of players), the cities are not removed until weeks or months later (if at all), and they simply storm back with other hacked cities as if nothing happened. TT&#39;s response: release increasingly novel ways to get players to make in-game purchases that perversely make hacking the game even easier. This game will make a great case study in how to destroy a promising game through ineptitude and negligence.
Awesome totally recommend it
by hdidndndjsmd. skx on 2018/08/28 04:45
The game is a great game I started playing When I was 7 I’m am 11 now and still absolutely love it unlike a lot of other games it it not pay to go up I’m level 22 almost 23 and I have not spent a single cent on it I do things do take a little to long like 5 hours for glass but that is later in the game you do not need sim cash witch you get from achievements or contest of the mayor or you can straight up by it is sure it is a little overpriced but what do you expect there are no annoying advertisements either like a LOT of other greedy games. Trading is fun to find what you need right there updating it so I can’t use it at this moment but it will be soon but there is one thing I noticed Whalen you get items to launch disasters it gives you all but one of the items I don’t now if I just got unlucky or if it is on purpose most of the service buildings are fairly priced but I think the pollution radius is to big but this game is over all amazing than you for reading this review great job
It used to be fun
by M E G A O O F on 2018/08/17 04:48
SimCity build it was fun for a while. Building your city is pretty fun, although a bit frustrating sometimes. It’s pretty good. But now, they have these stupid age restrictions. Apparently, if you are under a certain age, you can’t access four different buildings. 3 out of 4 of the buildings I din’t know about, but there’s one of them that’s completely stupid. The global trade HQ. the global trade HQ is the MOST IMPORTANT BUILDING IN THE GAME. Since most items take a long time to make, you’ll find yourself only able to play for about 10 minutes, then go do something else. But with the global trade HQ, you can buy these items from other players. In addition to that, you can also get free gifts sometimes from other players. But since I am under a certain age, I can’t access it. THIS IS NONSENSE. Why is it age restricted? You give me the ability of in-app purchases, where a kid could potentially waste all of his parents money, but you DON’T give me the global trade HQ, ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT BUILDINGS IN THE GAME. The only way to get around this would be to start over your entire game, but I’m already at level 13, meaning that everything I have done at this point was a waste of time. 2 stars
Make changes to Global Trade HQ
by jrob121212 on 2019/10/16 20:01
I find the game enjoyable however it would be nice if the developers added a feature that allows players search for a specific item(s) in the Global Trade HQ. Many times I find myself needing a specific item(s) that I cant make yet to upgrade a building or complete a quest. To bypass that issue I rely on the Trade HQ for what I need to continue. Currently when the Trade HQ is opened the player only sees “featured items” which is fine but there is no option that I have found to see only the items I need/want to see. For example say I needed to expand my city but was lacking one or more of the bulldozer parts, those three parts can’t be produced, they are obtained by chance during gameplay but people do occasionally sell them. Rather than wasting my time jumping in and out of different cities looking for those items it would be nice if there was a way to select and see only those items I need. It’s getting annoying when I need something and every “featured item” box contains pizza for an entire real world day.
Suggestions...
by VCG1912 on 2019/12/29 14:38
Love this game and would give it 5 stars but there are some features that I think would enhance gameplay. One suggestion would be to add government to the regional cities. It’s so difficult to simply gather money from the updating the housing and you get so little from updating them. The only way to get more money is to do the trading option and it shouldn’t be the only way. Making the updates be worth more than the meager hundred or so simoleons from updating the housing would also enhance gameplay. Another is to shift the trade items in the trading depot around. So many times when I’m getting supplies from there I see the same three items (currently it’s mostly pizza, hamburgers, and the ice cream bar). I know that they are worth a lot and other users want to use it to get fast money but there are other items needed that would be better to have if they were available. Suggestion #3 would be to add the stores that are only available in the capital city. Sure you can take one from the capital city and plop it in a regional city but then if you need it you need to plop it back or just go in between the two cities to get supplies and that is not a functional. It gets annoying and we should be able to have more of those stores to go around... like the factories. I hope some of these gets implemented because I really like playing the game and like the fact that you can play with other users through the wars and stuff.
Good Game but needs some work...

I love the game and I play it all the time. But, there a few minuses about the game. Like how everything is so expensive. I unlocked the garbage government thing and it cost 6000 sim cash. It’s not easy to earn sim cash when you’re in higher levels, though, because you’re constantly buying stuff from the World Trade Center so you don’t have to wait for the factories ad stores. Also, everything that you need to produce in the upper levels takes forever, forcing you to use sim cash if you need to upgrade a residential area or expand your city. And I don’t get the harbor, because I can’t make the ship leave so I can get a golden key. I also hate how education is a government requirement, but you have to pay golden keys for the schools. It should just be sim cash, because there’s only two ways to earn golden keys, and they’re both higher level things. I also would like to recommend changing the stores so that we can collect sim cash from them, so it’s not as hard to get the government requirements. But overall, the game is really cool and fun, but it does need a bit of work.
OMEGA and CLUB Review
by Blahhhhhhjhhhjvfghn on 2017/12/18 20:59
Something has got to give on the omega production/storage units. You can&#39;t control what items that need to be manufactured, and you can&#39;t sell/delete the items you may have too many of or do not need. Your storage unit gets way too full of useless or the exact same items over and over again and then you&#39;re essentially screwed. You have to build an omega structure just to get rid of items you don&#39;t need, then if you don&#39;t have the neo-coins to buy the drones etc. for that structure, you have to delete it. All to do the exact same thing over again just to get your inventory down to try and collect more random items in hopes of getting what you need. Either make it where you can sell/delete items out of your omega storage unit or where you can actually pick what you manufacture. The way it&#39;s set up now is a little ridiculous. ALSO, Members within a club should be able to donate keys, platinum keys, and coins to other club members. The only real way to help members out is just to put up items for sale. You should be able to donate more &#34;stuff&#34; to your club members.
Great, but....

A well balanced game, however I have a few gripes with it so far. Number 1 since the last update some “buildings” with water features are now dark blue and do not blend in with the water of a lake or pond it looks very out of place, it seems like no big deal but if you play this game from a design aspect it throws it off. Number 2 when upgrading to an epic building, the items it asks for are not easy to get in most cases, which is expected, however why ask for 5?!? And repeatedly ask for the same item in those same large quantities? Makes no sense, 2 or 3 is reasonable, as it will take awhile anyway just for those. Number 3 why not have separate speed up tokens for factories as well, that can’t be purchased but only made like with the epic buildings? The last one isn’t a gripe but a request, please give us more landscape and design features in the game(i.e that are not earned but simply purchased through the many forms of currency), a lot of them are too similar and plain looking. Although there’s way more to do in this game than just build it’s still a design game at its core.
Best game ever created
by Listen to me!...z on 2018/11/26 03:01
Sim city is extraordinary and has more to it than shown, everybody should get a chance to be the mayor of a city. I notice that when you sell a war item it only applies for club members, but it’s not an option. You can’t change it or change another item to just your club. Many times I tell a club member that what they need is up but it’s gone by the time they get there because someone clicks on a different advertised item and buys both. Also with how many little details the city has already, there needs to be aquatic life. Like a dolphin that come up out of the water giving a spectacular view for the sims. And maybe more water side, like a doc or a boat. All of this would be in the water you put inside your city. One more thing, I spend a lot of time admiring my city and work, so it would be cool if you could get down low with the city. Almost like google earth wear you have a street view. Awesome game! And thank you for your consideration.
Fun until.... Lvl 20 then you run out of room.

Have had this game for over a year, still have a bunch of the special buildings, Halloween, Christmas, Empire State Building, opera, expo center, ballon rides, 2016 New Years ball at my entrance. I had lots of fun for the first 20 levels. It was hard but I kept playing. It&#39;s been almost a year of not playing. I had stopped playing in hopes that some things would get easier. I have expanded to the point of needing 30 special pieces, for each. I need 7 expansions, 210 special pieces I have not found them in the auction, rarely pop up from my population, I&#39;m to the point where I WOULD need pay to expand and play further. I could buy them, but hey they are just to expensive. I have and do use cash on some of these games, but when you figure the math, it&#39;s not worth it. Same reason I don&#39;t invest in other EA sponsored games, like the NFL. I just stop playing. I understand these things cost money. I could justify a couple bucks to expand a tile, but $10 to expand ONE TILE, or $70 dollars to expand all 7, it&#39;s Just not worth it. Have fun while you can, it will take up a bunch of your time, you also will probably say &#34;oh well&#34;
SimCity is the best!!!
by Twiggy2508 on 2019/12/23 21:41
I love SimCity. You are a mayor of a city and you have to build it and keep your happiness up. In my bedroom, I make a pretend city call Tenaroto. Also, you get to buy and sell stuff and make your own stuff and you have to give your stuff that you make in your factories to the construction team so they can make houses and you can upgrade them and make them into HUGE towers like the skyscraper in NewYork City, United States. The only thing I don’t like about the game is there isn’t any crime, deaths, or fires when you build fire, police, and hospitals. Like in real life, even though houses have a fire station or a police station or a doctors office near there house, there are still crimes, fires, and sicknesses. Overall, SimCity is the best city building game in the world. Twiggy2508 P.S I also don’t like that you can’t make your own city name. My city name was going to be Tenaroto but had to change it to twiggy city. Please Change those things.
Why I love SimCity build it and some tips to makers please read

This is a awesome game I got it like 2weeks ago and was really into it I love that there are no forced ads and if there are ads they get you material and all of the ads are optinal witch is great it fits everything I could ask for in a game I highly recommend this game for adventurous people just to exaggerate the point I lovvvvvvvvvvve this game absolutely the best game ever made I used to play a lot of others games this on e took them over in a snap so best game ever hope you buy it and enjoy it well actually if you buy it and spend enough time on it you will enjoy it no doubt it is really frustrating at the first that is where I almost quit but by the time a had 5,000 people in my city and if that sounds like a lot but it really isn’t that hard I have207,001 people in my city in under half a year I wish there was seasons though there is just day and night and rain there need to be snow and summer and spring and fall
Love It
by bjeverson on 2019/05/09 20:31
I really do enjoy this app! It’s fun and easy to pass time with. I wish, however, that when looking for things to buy in the Global Trade HQ there would be a limit of how many items pop up. It seems that I always have almost a full page of burgers being offered which can be annoying. I would also love to see more regions! Perhaps some regions tied to the buildings we already have? Like a London themed region for our London townhouses or an Omega themed region for our Omega homes. I love the Omega buildings, but I do not like the way they look in my capital city so I wish there was a way to store the Omega government buildings. Another cool idea could be seasonal regions? Such as a Halloween themed region (we have access to them all year long) but during the holiday there is special tasks to complete in that region. It would also be nice to be able to merge certain buildings. For example, instead of having 5 sewage treatment plants, we can merge them with up to three others.
The people & what they want
by golden chicken stew (gcs) on 2019/09/19 21:52
So in the game you have to build your own city, as so but in it they tend to get a bit... greedy. In the game you spend a lot of money. Then in the future you might not be able to buy most things. So for an example: If the people or sims want there sewage gone you need to build one but back in the past you spent a lot of money. So you cant really help them making them get mad and either leaving or adding to the number of mad people in the city. And to get more money you need to make stuff and build houses or just trade with mega Corp And stuff like that but it takes time to make the materials that you need. Then in that time the more mad people will get added because of you the mayor taking a long time to get that stuff done. Yes I know it’s a strategy game and people want to figure out and solve problems but sometimes those problems could get too out of hand. But the rest of the game is good. So I know that the game is supposed to be realistic and in real life people need what they want but you could pay too much for something someone needs or multiple people who needs whatever like power. You could pay too much for a power plant or something but when you get to level 8 people want sewage stuff. But last time you used almost all of your money so you can’t buy sewage plants. And yes again it’s a strategy game and it’s also supposed to be realistic but I’m aware of that.
Great fun way to pass the time without pressure
by Makellams on 2019/05/10 13:21
This is a fun way to pass the time. I really find it enjoyable and in a way relaxing. It definitely takes patience. You can’t be in a hurry to build your cities. A couple things I would ask to improve upon: I’d like to be able to zoom out a little further. My cities have gotten big enough that I can’t zoom far enough out to see the whole thing. Also, I don’t do Facebook. I’d like to have a way to add friends in a social network outside of Facebook, or add a chat room to the game so people can ask each other for items. Lastly, it would be great if we could search for a particular item in the marketplace. For instance, if I need a fire pit, I’d like to be able to search the market place for one rather than having to sit there and refresh the market every thirty seconds waiting for one to pop up. This might also help those who are impatient to move things along a little quicker.
Great At The Beginning, but...
by Jcorgidog on 2018/10/07 14:25
I’ve been playing this game for two years. The early stages of the game are fantastic. Building your city in your image is a lot of fun. Even in the middle stages the player has more options available as experience points grow. The game starts going down hill when you start to build London, Parisian, Tokyo, and worst of all Omega zone buildings. If you want to play for free it becomes ridiculously hard to accumulate items needed to upgrade those buildings. At least with the first three of those type of structures you can choose to bulldoze them and continue building with standard ones. But the damned Omega foundational buildings (ex: the neo bank, storage, etc) CAN’T BE ELIMINATED and take up real estate space on the grid. Then there’s the expansion piece. The more lots you acquire the fewer wheels/exhausts/and tractor blades pop up during the course of play. Building new structures grinds to a halt without new land to build on... unless of course you shell out $$ to buy the needed items. And I don’t want to get into the wars gimmick. Stupid and boring. I’m about ready to delete the game, but I hate to see all my work go down the drain.
Fantastic

Not a game expert, rarely play video games... the other day, it occurred to me that my 6 year old son and 8 year old daughter (who ENDLESSLY design little worlds with blocks, legos, crayons, etc.) might like a game I vaguely remember from childhood. Now we all sit around the iPad together taking turns making our town a little better. The game starts as a free game, and we had fun with that for awhile, and I plopped down a massive 5 bucks to get us building for approximately 6 hours over three or four days. It seems to me that this is more than fair, and my kids are jumping out of their skin to keep going, so my take is that the pay to play model is exactly in balance with this game. Hats off to the program managers and developers of this game, and my family thanks you for a lot of fun times already! We build worlds with blocks, at school, at the ice rink, at the rock climbing wall, the baseball diamond...and now the 4 year old iPad that absorbs this game easily. Great job!
Download Fallout Shelter instead

Classic pay to win or in this case expand. Earning any kind of currency or rare materials is almost impossible in this game. This game is so tightly engineered that it’s almost impossible to accomplish anything (in a fair amount of time) without spending real money. I tried and tested many different currency earning strategies offered by the game (and suggested by developers), but to no avail. I was still short on materials here and low on service production there. The trading system is trash. The only thing that makes it worth while is the fact that so few items are advertised that you can jack up the prices to all your materials and someone will buy them. I even went a step further and played a new game at a slower pace with the same results. With this kind of struggle, I’d rather pay a flat rate for the game than encounter the stress levels this game ensues. I’ve played other “build” simulation games such as Fallout Shelter, and I’ve never seen such monumental money walls as seen in Simcity Buildit. In short, if you want to be stressed out waiting 10 years or strong armed into spending real money to expand your city, this is the game for you. Thanks EA.
Great Game.... However..
by ohgeezblupanda on 2018/11/28 07:13
There needs to be a booster that temporary disables the others team shield even when repairing. My team has lost many games due to the fact the other teams refuse to build their last building remaining under a shield. Then proceed to wait out the clock. In a new update please include a battle booster to make this fair. It’s called WAR for a reason. Yes it’s a strategy, I agree. However it’s pretty lame when it comes to attacks and making the game fun. My team members have grown greatly disappointed that the higher in rank you go this continues to happen. NEW BOOSTERS!!!! Please. Or create a time limit on repairing shields. We all know the time frame of War so it’s only far there be a time limit to rebuild and continue attacks. Something! Anything! Just make the game fair and fun. I appreciate you letting me rant and hope that this issue is resolved. We can’t be the only team dealing with this kind of problem. Thank You, The Upside Down
Sim City meets Freemium Gaming
by dredre2k on 2018/12/27 21:08
I’ve been a long-time fan of the Sim City series, but much of the intelligent, thoughtful gameplay of managing the city that made the game fun in the past has been replaced with a resources trading system and gameplay that’s wholly dependent on you paying into the game to build your city. Between having two currencies (one you earn) and the other that you largely buy, meaningful progress takes days, and you’re constantly encouraged to buy the premium currency to speed up gameplay. The items that constrain gameplay are the commerce stores you set up in your city. Items you need to expand your residential areas take 20 to 30 minutes to produce, and you can only have ONE or each store type. This was enormously frustrating and it caused me to abandon the game for an earlier version, where I actually need to think about things like zoning and tax policy to build a city, rather than pull out my credit card to advance. I would rather pay $15 to get a solid game rather than be slowed down by micro transactions. This was a miss for me in such a fantastic gaming series.
