As the mayor of the town, you were tasked with building your city from scratch, managing the expectations of its inhabitants, and generally making sure that things ran like clockwork.
Fast forward to the modern day, and players seem to have forgotten that the city-building genre even still exists. That isn't surprising, given that European coding teams seem to trot out version after version of their own take on the game type every other month, with relatively little in terms of improvement. The closest thing you'd find on a modern day console – until now – is the likes of the dire A-Train HX, if you can find a copy, that is."
