Design, build and manage your town. Build a city, help it grow and evolve it into a huge metropolis.

To build a successful city you will need to attract residents to the island by building houses and skyscrapers for them to live in. They will need jobs so you will also construct commercial and industrial buildings where they can work. Build city services, leisure and community buildings, parks and decorations to keep your new residents happy and content in their new town.

Happy sims will work harder and create more income for you to spend on improving your city and building a unique skyline. Manage transportation to keep your citizens moving both day and night. Build large seaports and huge airports to increase industry and travel.

Suitable for all ages and all experience levels, Designer City is not just a city builder or city simulator, it is a city design and town creation game. You can build it anyway you want. Play as a regular city builder and design fabulous city skylines or use the inbuilt advanced analytics to optimise your city.

The more advanced city builder can apply town zoning principles, manage pollution levels, efficiently deploy city services and optimise city resources to increase city happiness and maximise city revenue. Keep it as simple as you like or be a tycoon and micromanage building your city and keeping your sims happy; the choice is yours.

Dynamic land generation ensures no two cities will ever look the same and you can manipulate the land as you progress. Want a river flowing through your city? No problem, just create one. Want to create a commercial powerhouse? No problem, zone a downtown area and build massive skyscrapers. Want to create a carbon-neutral city? No problem, use green power stations and carbon-offset with buses, trains, parks, lakes and forests.

With non-scripted game play you have the creative freedom to build your city your way. The only limitation is your imagination. Can your dream city make it to the top of the many leader boards?

Play again and again with a city reset feature and watch a new landscape dynamically generate for you. If you love city building games then this is the building game for you. Happy designing!

Note: Designer City can be played completely free and does not require an internet connection to play. Some completely optional in-game items, such as purchasing game currency, will require payment.

Loving this addictive game, immense catalogue of buildings and fair progress mechanism, you don’t have to buy in-app money, but can if you want to speed up. A couple of things to improve on: camera rotation, should be in a more practical location, I use it quite often and it’s annoying to have to go into the menu; it would be nice to be able to add hills, or to change the landscape out of the boundaries before expanding, so to shape the city along say a river or such. Great game overall tho!! Have been losing track of time w it.

Great game to play and needs quite a bit of improvement

Having fun playing the game however there are still some areas that can be improved on. First of all the trains run too slowly and I think that they should run faster, e.g. when a train approaches a station it should slow gradually rather stopping all of a sudden at low speed, monorail runs too quickly and needs to be slowed down.
The design of the foot path could be better and it would be much better if the game doesn’t close by itself after a minute when viewing other cities as it happened over a hand full of times now.

Thank you for your review and suggestions. If you game is closing, try freeing up some memory on your device. If there is not enough memory to run the game iOS will close the app. delete any unused apps and stop all other apps from running before opening the game

Very good but...

This is an extremely good game but it should include different road types, better and bigger corners, roundabouts and bridges etc. Bus zones should be able to be set so there is different routes you should also be able to set the train line routes and give the different areas borough names and districts. Please would these features be considered in an update soon :)

Thank you for your review and suggestions, we will bear them in mind. Bridges will build in the game when road is placed at water's edge and there are no obstructions.
