f 1024 01 [New game] SimCity Deluxe now available for Android

The original SimCity is one of the earliest games I remember playing as a child on my family’s PC compatible Tandy 1000. As a kid it was definitely one of my favorite games. Today EA has continued the Sim legacy, and now they have recently released SimCity Deluxe for Android.

SimCity Deluxe comes with seven different multifaceted scenarios, everything from playing the World Games to dealing with a flesh-melting heat wave. It’s all the SimCity fun you’d expect while protecting your city from blizzards, electrical storms, lucust plagues, and meteor showers – or get hit with multiple disasters at once.

I’m honestly not sure how excited I am about the new game, as I have already read some negative comments over at AndroidPolice. One thing that already sort of turned me off was the fact that you can’t build cities from scratch(which was the only thing I ever personally enjoyed in the game) and not to mention as it is a direct port from iOS with a 4:3 aspect ratio it is stretched to fit an Android widescreen display, while the textures are reported to look somewhat low res and grainy.  The dissatisfied customer got their refund and also complained it looked especially bad on a tablet.

Nonetheless, if you are still interested in the game you can head on over to the Market where SimCity Deluxe is available now for $4.99. Let us know what you think if you’re grabbing it!

    I really couldn’t find it anywhere, even in Google Play. Does anybody know if EA discontinued the Android version?
