Best Windows 8 Apps
7 January 2014
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!

I love you. Seriously. This is AMAZING. I've been wanting to play the old SimCity for so long now, you've literally made my year!
I just have a few questions. Is there a way to save? Will you be doing the themed graphic sets too? And finally, are you single???

Perfectly simple recreation of an old favorite. Looks the same, plays the same and it has all the options from SC2 (including choice of monsters). A loving homage to a great game that has since been ruined by EA.
Support a good dev and give EA an F-YOU! :-) Back to the fun!

Why are apps like this not more discoverable in the windows app store? Its a quality game- one of the best for win8. Needs to show up more easily in search.

I've played two cities so far and this has been a great experience so far. It's the same as the original Sim City as it is based off of Micropolis. Kudos for a great touch easy port!
P.S. Use the zoom functionality below the map for easier touch input.

This is what I am looking for in a city simulator game... none of these "in game purchases" crap that isn't a true simulator at all. The classic interface takes me back to my Win 3.1 box :)... where do the years go? Still figuring things out and re-adjusting.... I love it!

Always loved this game. And to see that it was given to needy kids through the One Laptop per Child program, well that is just awesome!

It would be very helpful to have some type of in game instruction quide or something similar. My city it's bad but not terrific and I have absolutely no idea how to improve the situation.

RetroCity is a really fun game which is very similar to sim city but with an old "retro" look and style.
the game is confusing

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,

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 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!

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

I can't figure out how to gain money. Please help.
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
