What are city building games?

Building and maintaining a large city isn’t easy, but you can have a lot of fun playing the role of an architect. The SimCity series has been around for over 30 years and is the original city building game. Since its original title was published by Maxis in 1989, the SimCity series has released numerous different titles on every platform possible. It has also inspired other developers to enter the market. Now, you can start a colony on another planet in Surviving Mars, battle the elements in Frostpunk or even create your own idea about what the future might look like in Anno 2070. You can even enjoy a more comical look at the genre with Tropico 5, where you become a governor in the Victorian era with aspirations to become ‘El Presidente’ of an ever-evolving island nation. This game perfectly blends city building with politics, so you can rig elections and bribe officials as you develop your dream community. City-building games are incredibly popular with gamers because they allow players to unleash their imagination. As levels progress, the gameplay also becomes more complex, so you can fight off natural disasters, crumbling buildings and upgrade your environment to mimic future developments.
