The Urbz: Sims in the City
- The Urbz: Sims in the City (2004 on PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube)
Description official descriptions
In 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.

Like most Maxis games, includes references to llamas. In this case, you can purchase a miniature llama as a pet in the carnival.
This game (and also the other Sim Game Boy Advance games) includes many references to the TV show Smallville. For instance, The sim called Daddy Bigbucks is an evil rich business tycoon. In Smallville, Lionel Luthor is also an evil rich business tycoon, The sim Luthor Bigbucks looks a lot like Lex Luthor, The fact that your sim is an alien is similar to Superman's backstory, The city being named Miniopolis is also like Smallville's Metropolis. You can even purchase a Green Meteorite (similar to Kryptonite), which it even says in the games description of the item is that it renders some superheroes powerless (another reference to Superman). Also, the game is developed by Griptonite games, another reference to Kryptonite. There are even more references to Smallville to be found in the game that are not mentioned here.
