SimCity Deluxe from EA Mobile will have a user interface that improves on the current Sim City offering, with enhancements that make it look a bit more SimCity 4 on the PC. SimCity has been popular on the iPhone since it was released in 2008
The game includes different seasons (with appropriate disasters, of course) and 7 starter cities just waiting for you to run them into the ground.
The new version will sport improved frame rates, and the ability to modify terrain with a touch and swipe of your finger.
These type of games go way back. I remember playing Santa Paravia which was a similar, but considerably more primitive economic simulation, way back when it was on the TRS-80. Ah, memories.
The new SimCity Deluxe will work on the iPhone and iPod touch, and I reckon that you can count on an iPad version as well.
