So how does SIMTOWER stand up to its other Sim-bethren? As I've said, it has a much more clearly defined goal than the SimCities and fewer variables for the player to juggle, making it a little more accessible. On the other hand, it certainly isn't a deep game, and while it might take some time to get a tower up to “tower” level, once you accomplish that lofty peak, I'm not convinced that you'd want to play the game again. But if the other SimGames were a little too chaotic to you, then I'm sure you'd like SIMTOWER. If you're obsessed with elevators, then you'll love it. Hard-core SimGame fans should just beware that while SIMTOWER reaches for the sky, it doesn't run very deep.

This game offers plenty of chances to make money to continue building, but you will often find yourself with nothing to do as the money runs out. Wait a while and continue building, and either read a book or do something else to keep yourself occupied in the meantime.

Det är möjligt att jag aldrig kommer att bli en riktig hyresvärd. Men jag har ju alltid Sim Tower att träna med.
