Your Sinclair (Aug, 1990)
Now this really is a game and a half. In fact it's two games - or even three! Sim City has to be the most addictive, fascinating little program we've seen all year - for my money more fun than Pipe Mania, Castle Master or any of those others we've raved about lately (by a power of about ten!). It really is the bee's knees, and will appeal to just about anybody - even my dad thought it was "Quite good, I suppose" and that's saying something!

SimCity, porté sur ZX Spectrum, fait mieux que se défendre: on voit difficilement comment le plus chevronné des programmeurs aurait réussi à tirer davantage de l’ordinateur de Sinclair. Comme souvent sur cette machine, les limitations techniques empêchent cette version d’aller rivaliser avec celles parues sur les ordinateurs 16 bits – mais d’assez peu, il faut bien le reconnaître. On tient peut-être là un des meilleurs jeux jamais publié sur le ZX Spectrum. Une version qui a dû faire bien des heureux à l’époque.
