As we mentioned in our review, EA’s freemium take on the classic Sim City franchise isn’t quite what most would expect.
Still, Sim City Build It [Free] offers a pretty fair free-to-play experience with a lot of elements that pay homage to the series.
With that said, there are always ways to be more efficient while playing a crafting title and we’ve got a few tips to help you get there...
Considering EA’s recent trend of reviving old IPs in a freemium world, it’s safe to say that expectations weren’t high when it was announced that Sim City would return to i OS with a free-to-play model.
I'll own up to a couple of little quirks that I have.
If you like to get your news online, then you'll know that it was impossible to avoid reading today about how Glu Mobile is following its mega hit, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood [Free], with a game starring the rejuvenated 90s icon, Britney Spears (there's also a Katy Perry game on the way).
Although Glu's financial news was also fascinating, with the Chinese Internet giant, Tencent, buying 126 million dollars worth of Glu's stocks (and in that way declaring its faith in Glu's "Hollywood Gaming Platform" plan), what caught my attention was the incredible reach of an announcement regarding Britney starring in a mobile game.
While it’s not exactly a groundbreaking free-to-play base builder, Call of Duty: Heroes [Free] is still a pretty decent freemium title.
Our review mentioned that the game itself is a bit more forgiving in some aspects of it freemium elements, but like all similar titles, there are still plenty of timers and opportunities to shell out for premium currency.
