SimCity (or SimCity Classic) is a popular city building simulation in which you, the mayor of a city, have to build a metropolis from the ground up. You can build police and fire departments, assign industrial, residential or commercial areas, manage power distribution, build ports and airports. Grow your city from village to metropolis and try to keep your citizens happy.

What they thought about it

"As a stand-alone title, the first SimCity is an impressive execution of a very smart concept. Yes, there's room for obvious improvement, the limited interface holds you back, and much like with Theme Park you're building to maximize the efficiency of a model, not free-building the town as you please. Still, it's a fun challenge, and a great milestone to the genre." - Just Games Retro review
