This game functions just like the first Sim City. I do believe a sequel should be made, in the likeness of Sim City 2000.

The game is a good concept and fairly well executed. I like the retro look and uncomplicatedness of it. However, it is overly frustrating. My main complaints are that the game is not well balanced, there isn't very much to do, and the UI is a pain. My population size seems to fluctuate drastically without any obvious cause, generating income is nearly impossible and once you're broke you basically have to cut all funding to basic infrastructure or increase taxes and watch your population drop, and neither guarantees you'll make money. You operate off very little info, just a random text every so often. I don't know if anything I do actually makes a difference. The entire UI is a headache. It's so easy to accidentally place an item somewhere, and the only way to get rid of it is bulldozing, and that's goodbye precious funds you have no chance of getting back. Side note, for those of us that are OCD, it would be nice to have a "view grid" type option for placing structures too.
I STARTED THIS GAME THREE MINS. AGO AND I'M ALREADY BANKRUPT!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS A GOOD GAME THOUGH!!!!!!!!

I used to play this when it was the earliest version of SimCity. I loved it then and it's a blast playing it again. Wish there were ports of more recent versions but this is fine for now.

If you go to where you saved your game, and changed the file type from a .rcm file to a .json file, you can then open it and you need to remember how much money you had in the game, then go to the top bar of the notes page, go to edit and click find, type in the amount of money you had when you saved the game, then put in a small ammout, too much and it wont work, I put in 999999 around there and it had worked. once you put in your desired amount, then save the notes/.json file and rename the file type back to .rcm, then open the app, retrocity and right click, press import game and then find the game you had saved, and open it up then Walla! you are rich! also does anyone know how to stop pollution?I am clueless in that area

Very simplistic- a bit hard to go back to after playing the more advanced versions of SimCity, but a great retro break for the price.

VERY addicting! 5 stars, it's an amazing game. My favorite thing about is how many cars run around on one road! <3 Thank you so much for creating this game. It's a lot like SimCity, BUT FREE!

This app is really addictive and open ended. The only thing this app needs to do to be great is to brush up a couple of things.
-The icon is an eye sore (not metro-style at all). The splash screen actually has a really good graphic that should be the icon.
-Documentation just is not there. I had no idea what to do with this app when I first got it. It took me a good 3 days to finally get how it works. A nice tutorial would be appreciated
-The interface could be customizable (like a dark theme!!!!)

cant earn more funds really annoying
6 May 2014
I have no idea how to put out fires, make bridges, and maybe some other stuff as well (maybe). I think they should put in a help or instruction manual on how to do this game but they don't have one. :-( That's why I'm giving this a 4 star. It is still fun but I had to figure out most of the things on the game, but not all. Creators, please put in a instruction or help manual. We need it!

How can I change tax rate? By the way, GREAT
16 February 2014
But the lack of instructions on how to play leaves people like me who have never played a game like this lost and confused. Once all my money ran out, I couldn't figure out how to make more. Other than that, it seems like it would be a great game to play if you knew what you were doing,

Epic!!! I love it!
22 January 2014
I can't figure out how to gain money. Please help.

This is based off Micropolis, the original name for what is now known as SimCity. Everything from Micropolis was thrown into this free game. I applaud the developer's idea to port this onto Windows 8, and it runs amazingly well on my laptop. Thank you!
very fun reminds me of the original SimCity. I know the point of the game is to recreate the first game but it would be fun if they added features specific to this game to make it unique
