Default Best City Sim(s) on iOS

Good Day,

With all the drama over Sim City I have got an itch for playing some on my iPad. I am looking for recommendations on what is the best, or a few of the best to consider, city sim games on iOS.

The EA Sim City Deluxe for iPad looks like it might be the most complex offering but the recent reviews say it is broken. The other city sim games that are popular look a little too much like free to play time syncs then a premium city sim experience that I am seeking.

Also, Pixel Village really catches my eye with its cool premise, carving out your village, trade and combat but it looks pretty bug ridden at the moment. If anyone knows of something similar please mention it.


Thanks

I've only really dug into SimCity Deluxe. I didn't have issues when I played it, but that's been a while so it might be broken now. I thought it was a pretty good take.

The only other I've played is Virtual City HD. Not terrible, but a freemium game that I couldn't really get into.

Tried Pixel People and Dungeon Village?

Zombies Not Allowed is another "smaller community" sim with a zombie theme which makes it a little different, but this one's pretty casual.

A little different but one i liked too is Puzzle Craft. There's town building and improvement, but more on the match-3 puzzle side of things.

I recall enjoying G5's Virtual City over the iOS Sim City.

I have played Pixel People but it felt a bit slow and ever present IAP options killed the romance so to speak. It certainly provides a fresh take and is cool but not really what I am looking for. I'd prefer a more deep city sim and preferably premium.

I enjoyed a couple of Kairsoft games, last month I was addicted to Beastie Bay, so I think I will get Dungeon Village, but keep an eye open for more modern city sims.

I checked that thread and some other Youtube clips about that game. It's cool, a city building but have a feeling of God game, employee worship on a billboard of Money. Exciting!!!
