… is coming soon.
It looks like a major upgrade – they’re now doing the whole 3D thing that they
planned but ditched for SimCity 3000. Apart from the graphics, there are
a ton of new
features that allow you to go much deeper into the game.
I’ll be itching to get hold of it, even though my experience with previous
versions has always been something along the lines of a two-week intensive binge
followed by complete disinterest.
(Oh, that reminds me – I finished
Monkey today. It’s an old-fashioned vertical blaster, but with gorgeous 3D
graphics. It took me just over a week to complete, but given that it’s only a $15
download and is good fun, I think that’s pretty good value.
It was coded by my chum Moose, who is now lead programmer on
Lionhead’s The Movies)
