Simulation. The City Life Deluxe gives you unique possibility - to be a planner of a city of the 21st century. Every element of the city's design is under your control. It means that you can create everything from ultra-modern skyscrapers to old-fashioned style villas in residential neigh. But the greatest thing is that you have total freedom of construction and can build the city of your dream. It is really great but you should take in your mind that everything is not as simple as you may think. You should work out the logistics for municipal services, education, health care, entertainment and more, use planning and management to maintain the complex city's infrastructure. As for me, the hardest task is to keep peace and harmony between the 6 different social classes in the city, namely elites, suits, radical chics, blue collars, fringes, and have-nots. As you know all the work has its own price, so imagine how proud you will be with yourself at the end of the work. It is a great game because it gives you a chance to be the manager of a big city. Who knows, maybe you will need this skills in you real life?
