It's doubtful that when Will Wright birthed SimCity
he imagined the game one day playable in the palm of the hand, using a cell phone keypad. Nevertheless, EA Mobile Games has made it happen.
For $1.99, SimCity
will surely attract some impulse buys, but perhaps its legacy -- as the starting block for the Sim
phenomenon -- is best kept with fond memories; or at least, a better suited platform
. As with Geometry Wars
, we just can't imagine that mobile SimCity
is any good.
