SimCity (a.k.a. SimCity Classic)
SimCity (a.k.a. SimCity Classic) downloads
SimCity was Maxis' first product, which has since been ported into various personal computers and game consoles.
The inspiration for SimCity came from a feature of the game Raid on Bungeling Bay that allowed Wright to create his own maps during development. Wright soon found he enjoyed creating maps more than playing the actual game, and SimCity was born. In addition, Wright also was inspired by reading "The Seventh Sally", a short story by Stanislaw Lem, in which an engineer encounters a deposed tyrant, and creates a miniature city with artificial citizens for the tyrant to oppress.
The original working title of SimCity was Micropolis.
SimCity inspired a new genre of video games. "Software toys" that were open-ended with no set objective were developed trying to duplicate SimCity's success.

- #2 - 29.12.2014 16:57 AbandonwareDOSJust click on "Download SimCity (a.k.a. SimCity Classic)" in the download section. What do you mean by Mplayer? There are no screenshot programs.

There's a big green download button, which scrolls me down the page a bit, but I can't figure out what exactly it's trying to scroll me to.

I dragged and drop SimCity from the download on the abandonwaredos.com site, but I am having trouble getting a full screen. It appears as a mini-screen with black out dominating the backdrop. Plz advise and thank you! Daniel
