Electronic Arts has often faced criticism on console in the past for being too predictable - rolling out the same franchises year after year with only minor improvements. But that's certainly not true of EA Mobile.
Having already debuted connected features in Boom Blox and Spore Origins this year, not to mention creating an entirely new Tetris game just for phones (Tetris Pop), the publisher is now at it again with SimCity.
Specifically, EA Mobile has released the first mobile-exclusive version of the famous city-planning franchise: SimCity Metropolis. It takes a lot of the good stuff from its predecessor SimCity Societies, and adds more depth, as producer Olivier Proulx tells Pocket Gamer.
