At its core, City Play is your basic city builder. There is not a lot to it that makes it special or unique, but it does what it does well. What makes it addictive for many players is the options and nearly endless amount of building that you can do. Unlike most other games, which may restrict you or become monotonous, you will have choices nearly everywhere you turn. You will have to wait during the game, as building requires real life time, but it is a lot of fun and it will give you the chance to be as creative as you want to be.


Again, City Play is a basic city builder for the most part. You have an empty space that you can build atop, making it whatever you want to be. It is free space with no zoning or restrictions set. The entire land is your sandbox, and you can make it what you want it to be. Go from residential to shops, or anything else. With over 80 different types of buildings to use, you have a lot of choices available to you. Whatever you want to do, you can make this a unique and incredible city of your dreams.

Building is not just about what you want to see. Yes, you can make it your own and get creative, but you have to think about the people, too. As with any city builder, there are inhabitants in your city. You want to grow the population as much as possible through your builds and designs. Choose buildings that bring in the people, giving them what they want. Residential buildings, shops, and necessities are all part of this. Every building plays an important role and should become part of your city as a way to appeal to a growing population.


With each building having a purpose, you will have to be strategic. Think before making a move, and think wisely. You do not want to leave your town without any necessary resources or cash flow due to poor choices, after all. It is easy to manage this, with only a small amount of depth to the game, so this should not be a big problem.

As you grow and make smart choices, your population will be on the rise. You will see tenant numbers going up and down based on your performance. The changes in these numbers come from real life statistics, too, so this is an interesting and realistic part of the game.

It is not all builds and fun. Disaster can strike at any time, taking down everything you have worked hard to establish. Watch out for these disasters, like fire, and have teams available and ready that can combat it.

A downside to City Play is that you have to wait. Waiting is a large part of the game, requiring you to wait while certain builds occur. This is something a lot of modern city builders have. However, there is no way to speed this up, forcing you to wait no matter what. Even so, it is still a fun and addictive game.
