Yes, I'm one of THOSE gamers that jumps onto every freemium sim game they can find.
I love tower builders, city builders, etc.
This looks sweet, downloading now.

Totally agree. I love the artwork in this.
I'm a sucker for games like these.

UPDATE: Ok, so I've played the first 20 mins or so and so far I'm really digging it. It's like Tiny Tower, but with more depth and there's an actual story involved. It has the usual F2P dual currency shenanigans, but that's to be expected with games like these. If your into these type of F2P city builders, this is actually pretty fun.......so far.

Glad I found this. Huge fan of tower building sims. Looks like an awesome game to relax / enjoy. The visuals are adorable haha

The App Store reviews are pretty good. Seems there's a group of dedicated fans.

Can't wait to try after work!

Although once 7pm EST hits my life will belong to witcher 3 lol!

Haha. I know what you mean about Witcher 3. Been looking forward to it......even though I didn't even come close to finishing Witcher 2, but I'm good for not completing games.

As far as this game goes, I'm really digging it. I haven't gotten to play much of it recently, with all the other releases that came out last week that I'm still trying to get through, but I put a good solid hour into this game and really liked it. It's a lot deeper than I expected. I can easily reccomend if you like Tower Builders.
