Ever since I first played with the original Sim City, I have been a huge fan of Maxis products and spent days and nights building entire worlds and vast cities. However, although I truly enjoyed playing with these products, I thought it could be better if there was a possibility to closely watch the inhabitants' life and see the Sims moving in the city. It is now possible with Sim Town, the latest release from Maxis. This title is designed for children and is therefore much easier to manage than Sim City 2000.

Back in the late '80s, SimCity was a huge hit on the PC, and it quickly earned classic status. The challenge of managing a growing city and keeping the citizens happy made an intriguing, addictive game. Now Maxis has created a SimCity for kids, bringing the same tried-and-true formula to a smaller, more accessible scale.

Die kalifornische Software-Schmiede Maxis war schon immer eine feste Bank, wenn es um intelligente Simulationen jenseits der ausgetretenen Konzeptspiele ging. Das neue Städtebauprogramm aus der „Software Toys for Kids“-Reihe bildet hier keine Ausnahme. Auf herzallerliebste Weise werden ohne erhobenen Zeigefinger dem Nachwuchs die komplizierten ökologischen Zusammenhänge in unserer ach so gebeutelten Umwelt nahegebracht. Dabei wurde das SimCity-Prinzip auf kindgerechte Maße abgespeckt, damit auf die Spieler im Grundschulalter nicht die Übersicht verlieren. Einziger Haken an der ansonsten geschickt aufgebauten Simulation ist das hakelige Scrolling. Wenn schon gestandene Spieleprofis mit den Zähnen knirschen, dürfte die Feinmotorik der Benjamine erst recht überfordert sein. Die alte SimCity 2000-Engine wäre hier hilfreicher gewesen.
