Win 3.1 release removed? disk exists

eXo (343) on Aug 14, 2014

Last time I checked here Simcity Classic had Win 3.x under the platforms list.

If you look at disk media in the standard simcity entry you'll find this:

I would say this proves that SimCity Classic was released for more than just Amiga.

I don't quite get what this Classic was supposed to be. Wikipedia claims it is a browser version of the game, however this media image disproves that the browser version was the only version.

I was under the impression that classic was the windows release name, including the advanced graphics packs - however I can no longer find evidence of this, so I'm a bit confused.

SimCity Classic for Win3.x used to have its own entry, but it was moved here. It's the exact same game as the original, the name is just a re-branding that they introduced when SC2000 came out to keep it apart from the newer game.

This Amiga version is just a bundle that for some reason also uses that name.

makes sense. I figured it had been moved. I just couldn't figure out why the amiga version was left, as I thought it might be the same thing. Thanks for the explanation.
