DescriptionIn this quasi-sequel to The Sims: Bustin' Out, the player finds themselves in the big city of Miniopolis. Starting out as a humble window washer, the player is quickly embroiled in a devious plot by the greedy tycoon Daddy Bigbucks to take over the city.
The story is much stronger this time around, with the player exploring three colorful city environments, including the New Orleans-influenced SimQuarter, the shiny Glasstown district, the gritty Urbania, and even a haunted bayou inhabited by two creepy Cajun brothers.
In addition to the traditional Sims gameplay of satisfying motives, making friends, and decorating an apartment, the player can experience eight job minigames, a "xizzle" system that lets players learn special abilities, and several new vehicles, including a motorcycle, hoverboard, and fanboat. Combine all that with a wacky sense of humor, and you get The Urbz: Sims in the City.

In Smallville, Lionel Luthor is also a evil business Tycoon And they are both rich, The sim Luthor Bigbucks looks a Heck of a lot like Lex Luthor,The fact that your Sim is an alien, The Simcity name Miniopolis is like Smallville's Metropolis and you can also purchase a Green Meteorite also known as Kryptonite!! it even says in the game that it renders some superheroes powerless. Meaning Superman. And also, the game is developed by Griptonite games. Another reference to Kryptonite. There are also many more references to Smallville. Pay close attention to every little detail.
