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.

Good game but improvements needed

I was once a programmer so I really love the details in this game. For example, the union of several water areas becomes a lake. But it would be even better if the complexity of the whole system could increase. E.g. it’s unrealistic to have just a building without some gardens and entrance (and exit) from the road. This requires a better resolution of tile rendering and thus either more efficient algorithms or more performance costs. The interactivity could be improved so that buildings are not just money machines. E.g. players can decide what to sell and the pricing of the goods, under an elasticity-incorporated system. Current map is also too small and it would be great if the player can have multiple “worlds” with different characteristics such as weather and landscapes.
I know that complexity means higher costs. But I really love this game and I believe many other players love it as well. I’m really looking forward to future updates.

Great game

I’ve only been playing a couple days, but this is a very cool game. I do play another city-building type game so I’m moving along pretty fast & am almost to level 20 already. I would’ve given this game 5 stars except for a couple things. First is that I just expanded my city for the first time & I don’t care for how new land is added.

A little teeny strip all around the city!? Yikes. I’d MUCH rather have small patches at a time so I don’t have to move so much stuff! Perhaps there’s a way to group & move sections that I just haven’t discovered yet. And it sure costs a lot for inventory space! I spent gold & only got one space? That’s certainly different - maybe I’m missing something? It’s a huge pain constantly moving all my trees around! Maybe there are other ways to do things & I just don’t know how yet.

Hopefully I can make friends other than thru’ Facebook. In all my other games you can make friends w/o depending upon FB, tho’ you can of course use it if you want. I canceled my FB account years ago & don’t really want to go there again, but I’d like to have some DC friends, so we’ll see.

Thank you

Thank you for creating a game that is money hungry and that I actually enjoy playing and makes me feel I can make real progress with out putting money into it, this is a game I’d actually rather pay to download, and the fact that I don’t have to pay to play I might actually put money into it and keep the game for longer than a week.

Edit: after playing for an extended time. I have come to dislike a few things one being the automatic price increase after you buy any item. It makes no sense and is unrealistic. And the second thins is their price on buy gold or more money in the game isn’t as good as some of the other games.
