Santulli Slant: Absolutely THE game that inspired Sim City, the modern computer classic. You can manage everything from economics to running' your opponent out of town. Maybe a bit too flexible - you can build a ski resort right next to a pier, for example - but satisfyingly complex. [Gr: 5, So: 6, Ga: 9, Ov: 9]

Periodical's review: Listed as one of the "99 Favorite Classics" by Digital Press in 1997.
