SimCity BuildIt now available worldwide for iPhone and iPad

Electronic Arts has now made its latest urban simulation game, SimCity BuildIt, available worldwide for the iPhone and iPad, after first announcing the game earlier this year.

Much like the previous games in the SimCity series, this new entry in the franchise allows folks to create their dream city while also dealing with all of the problems that come with it. Here's a list of its features:

  • BUILD YOUR CITY - With countless buildings and vivid, 3D-quality graphics, this is the most realistic city builder on mobile. Strategically place buildings to keep the taxes flowing and your city growing. Pinch, zoom, and rotate 360 degrees as you manage your city on the go – both online and offline.
  • FLEX YOUR POWER - Create and trade resources with friends and other cities. Unlock exclusive buildings like Big Ben and The Arc de Triomphe, or unleash natural (and not so natural) disasters!
  • KEEP YOUR CITIZENS HAPPY - Solve real city challenges like traffic, fires, and pollution. Balance services like power and entertainment to give your citizens what they need. Complete fun challenges to specialize your city and shape society.

While the game is free to play, it does contain in-app purchases to buy "SimCash".

  • I am not against this freemium model and have been enjoying games like Hay Day before. So I have decided to give a try to this one. So far I have progressed till level 8 and it is amazing. Visuals are stunning on iPhone 6 with all dynamic shadows and lights. Love it so far. Add me in Came Center *same username) so we can play together ;)
