Hi all, it's almost June.  Guess what!?  I've got my 'arcade' room almost set up, to a point where I can actually sit down in front of my Amigas to play games!!!  I am keen to start up GOTHEM again, and plan to post a couple of new games this weekend!

July-August 2024 - Sim City 2000
« on: July 02, 2024, 03:16:24 pm »
AGA Game of the Month for July-August 2024, is Sim City 2000![/b]

SimCity 2000 is the city building game subsequent to SimCity, developed and published by Maxis Software and released in 1993. It made its way onto many platforms following its initial release. It expanded upon many of the concepts that were present in the original and features new gameplay elements.

In this new version you now have the ability to build land with different elevations before you even start with structures. Once you have your terrain to your liking, you can start with your city. Available structures include the old tried and true from the original, but add many additional options like prisons, museums, hospitals, seaports, and much more. You also have access to building underground pipes and subways as well as building roads that lead to other cities with which you can trade. You also have your choice of ways to produce power for your city, but they have a finite existence and must be rebuilt periodically. You can now set individual taxes for the different city zones (residential, industrial, commercial) and enact ordinances. One of the most helpful additions is the query tool, which allows you to see information about anything in your city. The list of new features is too long to go into fully, you will just have to see for yourself. Apart from just free building, you can also play through challenges dealing with different scenarios.

Updated rules, sorry to be so late.  To give us all a chance to play this, I will extend through August.

I also had to install the patch to get this running.  Here is the patch:

I had never played this game before.

I spent quite sometime building my own cities and learning how it worked.

The Hi-Res Laced mode it runs in can be a bit tough.

Thankfully my machine has an indivision scandoubler/flickerfixer, which made it a lot better to play.

Very much enjoyed playing this, even though I had seen some people bagging it.

My finish Month/Year: FEB 1976
Cash: $10,824

Played on my A1200 TF1260, no keys , passwords or cheats were used.
