Sim City Alternatives?

Hey guys. I was wondering if there were any other good games on the App Store that are very similar to Sim City's style of play. I am a big fan of that genre, but heard there are some little bugs with the Sim City out now that devalues it beyond the $10 price tag. Any suggestions?
Thanks!

Fish Tycoon. Same idea, just a different method.

I like it. I had the PC version, and this is the same thing, exactly. It is really good, but I would like a time lapse button, as you have to play for 5-10 minutes, wait a few hours, then play some more. This is for the fish to age to selling age. Its annoying, but a really fun game. I hope a v2.0 has this or something. Unlimited replay, though.

I like it. I just requires patience and memory. Both of which some of the people around here seem to be missing.
