Description: You have secured a contract to build the world’s first vertical megacity – the Skytropolis. Start with a plot of land and build your dream tower up into the sky! From the architectural design to every part of the interior, you are in full control of creating your skyscraper. Do you rush growth and use resources from surrounding cities, or do you invest in sustainability with eco-friendly infrastructure? Be warned – the more you build, the more you need to balance your Skytropolis’ needs.
Review: Those of us hoping ‘Skytropolis’ is a VR Simcity need to take a step back as this is not even a city builder. It is a skyscraper builder in which you need to build the best self-sustained skyscraper you can. YOu will need to keep your little tower block residents happy and give them what they want all the while working in a budget. There are some challenges at least to mix things up a bit which is nice, but it is mostly about building within a budget. I have to say, it did hold my interest and while it isn’t the best looking I soon started to care for my little residents which kept me playing the game for some time. Personally I wouldn’t want to pay even half the £19.49, but I do feel about £9 is the right sale price to go for even if you will lose interested in this rather quickly.
