IGN - Venture Towns is Japanese iOS sim-maker Kairosoft's second city sim, following Oh! Edo Towns, released just five weeks earlier. In both titles players are tasked with developing a tiny town into a bustling metropolis, using tax dollars and other incoming funds. Unlike Edo Towns, the city players construct in Venture Towns is much more modern and westernized, allowing players to construct offices, stadiums, gyms and other modern-day sights. Like all Kairosoft games, the ultimate goal is to make as much money as possible within the game's set time limit, with certain bonuses carrying over from game to game to encourage replay.
