Glu Mobile, one of the most prominent mobile application developers, has announced its new Space City game for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It combines features from Sim City and Rollercoaster Tycoon games and it’s completely free!
Oh, and did we mention it’s 3D with some of the best graphics we’ve seen in the genre?
Not only does it look good, but the controls are phenomenal! You get to pinch to zoom, swipe to move around your asteroid site, and rotate the image instantly using two fingers.
Space City is Glu’s first fully 3D city building game with a galactic spin. We won’t spoil it for you, but we will tell you that players are tasked with colonizing and transforming a “small lonely asteroid” into a “thriving inter-orbit community.”
Knocks the socks off invading other civilizations and taking up their resources, so thumbs up for that Glu!
You get to build restaurants, entertainment and shopping malls and dozens of other venues and building types, in order to build a city that attracts “the galaxy's various exotic inhabitants.”
Visiting aliens will be happy to get jetpacks and flying cars, so don’t forget about those either.
“Each alien visitor comes with unique gameplay benefits, providing a steady flow of incentives for players to continue to build and maintain the most attractive city in the galaxy,” the developer notes.
Glu highlights the main features of its space age building game (complete with short descriptions for those who want to pick up on the game right away) in the list below:
· Build in Space: Players manage their own interstellar city and try to become the top destination in the galaxy.
· Customize Your City: Players have the ability to customize their city by building restaurants, entertainment venues and great shopping stores, all in an attempt to attract different alien species to visit.
· Visitor Benefits: Players earn new gameplay benefits and rewards for each alien that visits their city.
· Play with friends: Players can visit their friends' cities to earn daily bonuses or leave them gifts.
· Interact and Explore: Players can explore their thriving city in true 3D by using the zoom, accelerometer and gyroscope features of iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
