Sim city rant

... Wow... I spent like 6 hours building up my city to about 120,000 people. I go to delet 1 square so I can fit a police station and my phone freezes. Well about 10 seconds later my whole city is empty. It deleted everything for 1 little square. I have about 6 squares zones for garbage and that's all that's left. This game freezes soo much and shuts down. I really wish I could sell this game. I thought this game set the bar on games for the iPhone. Ea is such a huge company and they throw out this crap ware. I loved this game so much; I just think it took time to show he true side of the game. Buy at your own risk!

I'm sure you are pissed I would be what device/firmware are you on? I love this game the only probs I have is when I load the game and select continue game my phone seems to freeze for about a minute or so on a white screen, maybe a loading screen but a couple times I've been ready to do a hard reset then my map comes up. iPhone 3G, 2.2 firmware

Yeh...

To start off on my iPhone and meant rant but it must havewrote out rave. I run the most up to date sw on a non jail broke iPhone. It's beyond pissed it just makesme not want to play that game ever again. I mean I understand as
Sw. I trouble shoot in the iapps department at apple but this is insane. Until I know 100% that this will never happen again this game will stay off my iPhone.

Just a few thoughts, you could email EA and detail the problem, and you could also send a private message to craiglaw here on Toucharcade. Mr. Law is a representative of Electronic Arts Mobile Division who is active here on the forums. He is a very receptive and helpful gentleman.

ugh that sucks dude.

I remember the same thing happened to me when I was playing SimTower back a few years ago. I sat there building my dream tower for 10 hours straight only to lose it all because of a stupid Windows crash.

I have fond memories of the game, but never played it anymore.

It sucked

Yeh I mean I love the game and always have. When somehong like that happens it makes you not want to pick up the game and try again. I can definstely try emailing both of them to see where we can go with it. I just don't want it to happen again. Sry for the spelling still on the iPhone...
