    Sim City finally came to the iPad. I just downloaded the app and All I can say at the moment is that it looks good. I will of course have to play more in order to say of it is worth 5 stars :)

    Thanks for the heads up! Just downloaded it and its great. The touch interface works really well in Simcity, I like it better than a mouse on the computer.

    I played a lot of Sim City 2000 back in the days. Cheat codes to destroy the city with multiple flash floods, wildfires, and airplane crashes anyone?

    I had Simcity for the iPhone prior to the deluxe version. Is it really much different or is it just better graphics. Can you trade with other cities? I'm not buying it yet. This is an EA game. We all know it will go on sale in a month or so.

    Its the same as the iPhone game but better graphics and easier controls for the iPad.

    Anyone have any cheat codes? I keep running out of money and borrowing more just makes it worse later on. :D

    Glad i waited to pull the trigger.

    It's now on sale (at time of posting). $0.99 instead of $6.99.

    No more excuses for me not giving it a try.

    What a steal! Just got a few other games for 59p as well. The only one excluded is Monopoly :(.

    The star rating of sim city is screwed up by all the ppl who are mad they bought it at $7. Ouch. I picked it up but I don't think I'll play it much. I prefer the older and simpler versions where you didn't have to think about landfills and plumbing.

    Thanks for the heads up! I've been waiting for this for a long time. I would've gladly forked over $7 for this, but $.99 is a no-brainer.

    Yeah ... sadly I paid the $6.99 right before the sale, and haven't even touched it yet ... :(

    Hah, now It's 1$ on sale, After a few years with the App store I learned that you should never buy Games for more than 3$ (5$ in the iPad's case), EA always makes sales like that, I bought 3 Games for half of the price of one, I just wish Monopoly was on sale too :( I see it on sale on christmas day for sure :cool:

    Same here... I jumped on it when it first hit the app store and now I'm regretting it a little... But, I did take advantage of the sale and purchase the app for five friends. At $.99, it's hard to go wrong.

    As far as the game goes, I seem to remember SimCity being slightly more difficult. In about an hour, I can have a huge city and well over $200,000 without even playing aggressively. And, the game chugs quite a bit when cities get big.

    But, as a time waster, it's tough to beat.
