SimCity gave you the chance to build your own city, while SimTown let you build your own neighborhood. SimTower, also by Maxis, allows you to design and build your own high-rise tower, filling it with offices, restaurants, hotels, condos, and even a cathedral. Along the way, you will have to deal with terrorist-planted bombs, VIP visits, and noisy neighbors.
The game starts off with the placement of a lobby. You can build it as wide as you wish, but each section costs money. An elevator, escalator, or stairs connects you to the floor above, where you can place offices or condos. Your tower starts out with a one-star rating, which limits you to condos, offices, and restaurants. As time goes on, your building is awarded more stars, and you can build more types of rooms, such as hotel rooms, hotel suites, security offices, maid service laundries, and elevators, meeting rooms, movie theaters, and more. The choices seem endless.
In addition to placing rooms, you must also make it so that people can get around in your Tower. Express and local service elevators, stairs, and escalators will help you move your tenants around. But they will not take well to a Byzantine maze, so plan your building carefully. ~ Lisa Karen Savignano, All Game Guide
