Ever wanted to build your own metropolis? Now’s your chance. SimCity 4: Deluxe Edition is back and better than ever. This classic build ‘em up lets you create your very own urban jungle, complete with tiny residents. You can get it on Mac now for $4.99 (Orig. $20) at 9to5Toys Specials.
SimCity 4 is one of the highest selling simulation games of all time. Despite being 15 years old, it still feels fresh.
The game lets you build your city from the ground up, literally. You can terraform your environment, before placing roads, houses, tower blocks and bridges. As new residents move in, their taxes will enable you to expand your building projects.
However, life as a mayor isn’t a cakewalk. Soon enough you will face rising crime levels, burst water mains, and natural disasters — but put up taxes at your political peril.
The Deluxe Edition includes the original game plus the Rush Hour expansion pack. This adds a host of great transport links, including four-lane avenues and elevated road networks.
