SimCity™ 2000 Special Edition (1995)

About This Game

Now you can design any city you can imagine and SimCity 2000 will bring it, and its resident Sims, to life. It has all the features, flexibility, art, animation, and power you need to create an environment of your dreams. Choose from a selection of bonus cities and scenarios to rule or ruin as you please. Build schools, libraries, hospitals, zoos, prisons, power plants, and much more… Lay down roads, railways, and highways. Explore the underground layer and build subways and utilities without compromising your aesthetics. Customize different buildings or design your own graphics sets from scratch.

This is the ultimate classic Maxis city-building and management simulation. If this game were any more realistic, it’d be illegal to turn it off!

Gameplay

The unexpected and enduring success of the original SimCity, combined with the relative lack of success with other “Sim” titles, finally motivated the development of a sequel. SimCity 2000 was a major extension of the concept. It now has a near-isometric dimetric view (similar to the earlier Maxis-published A-Train) instead of overhead, land could have different elevations, and underground layers were introduced for water pipes and subways.

Features

  • Choose from hundreds of buildings from the 1900’s to the space age and beyond.
  • Customize the terrain any way you want, from flat prairie land to mountain vistas.
  • Wrestle with various disaster scenarios, ranging from a UFO invasion in Atlanta to a nuclear meltdown in midtown Manhattan.
  • Use the Urban Renewal Kit tools to design your own buildings.
