SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition

SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition Badge
The classic city simulation game returns to the Mac!





In SimCity™ 4, you don’t just build your city; you breathe life into it. Sculpt mountains, dig riverbeds, and seed forests as you lay the groundwork for your creation. Then, use your god-like powers to construct the most realistic metropolis you can imagine.

Whether you want to build mansions on mountainsides or cross canyons with bridges, the impact of your decisions is immediate. But while each click of the mouse can create, it has equal capacity to destroy. Capping an erupting volcano might save your city, or it might reroute lava down busy city streets. Sending police to quell a riot might calm down the crowd, or it might spur even further anarchy. With every decision you make, your city and your Sims will respond – for better or for worse. It’s up to you to be their guide.

The SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition includes both SimCity 4 and the Rush Hour expansion pack, which gives you more control over your city’s transportation options, plus two bonus disasters: UFO attack and Autosaurus Wrecks.

We even included the exclusive Mac “Custom Tunes” feature that allows your iTunes library to be played in the game!

  1. Its not bad
    by daisyborat, USA - Sep 14th 2017

    Graphics are a bit lacking.

    game play is fun for the average game.

    You meet your goals very quickly in standard mode and its near impossible in hard mode. Also, you cant keep growing like in games past. You max out your city to the boundries and thats it. Maybe add subway or adjust roads and such but you dont get to build large buildings, etc.

    Worth buying if its under 15 bucks. Great game for 14 years or younger.

  2. Still difficult
    by jjjnagy, USA - Feb 9th 2017

    Although my all-time favorite SimCity game is SimCity 3000, this is definitely second place. Improved graphics, and plenty of micromanagement of taxes (among many), this game definitely is an exemplar in its genre. I have to say that it seems more difficult to have a cash-positive city in this game than previous titles, but perhaps it's just me.

  4. Best SimCity Yet!
    by Fretless, Australia - Aug 6th 2016

    Unlike the latest version of SimCity, this one is very solid and very enjoyable. Countless hours of fun for city sim enthusiasts!

  6. Works!
    by citiesmotion, Switzerland - Apr 10th 2016

    I know the PC-Version and now I play the game on my MacBook. It works (maybe it works better with "medium quality"-graphics and effects).
    Probably the best Sim City - ever. It's the extended version (so you can drive through your city).

  7. So much fun!
    by thewileyman, USA - Feb 12th 2016

    I've had hours of fun with this city simulator, and have yet to get bored. Definitely keeps you coming back for more. I've experienced a couple of crashes here and there, but I haven't been able to pin down the reason, but nothing that really hurt the gaming experience. Totally worth the price (especially if you get it on sale)!

  8. Love Sim City, like this one
    by Karl F. Davie Burgdorf, USA - Nov 30th 2015

    Having played every Sim City since the early days, I have great expectations for new versions. This was a welcome version but it wasn't all that I wanted. Certain elements of the game didn't have the "classic" feel I enjoyed with older versions although the graphics are superb.

  9. The Best
    by Derrick Magnotta, USA - May 31st 2015

    SimCity 4 is incomparable. I loved it on windows when it was first released years ago. This is a perfect recreation for Mac. It's better than I remembered.

  13. Release your inner architect/town planner
    by muttonnoir, United Kingdom - Oct 26th 2014

    This is a great game. I have spent day after day lost in the construction of the perfect village/town/city/region. The game is creative, allowing you to plan and build a range of communities. Watch the city grow, industry develop and react to the demands of your Sims who live and work in your communities. Great to be able to solve a wide range of social and environmental issues. The extensive modding community have produced a fantastic range of additions that really enhance the game, enabling you to create individual identities for each town. It runs perfectly on my late 2008 13 inch macbook running Mavericks.

  15. Good Classic!
    by MaitrePlante, Canada - Aug 25th 2014

    A perfect classic game that I played a lot before. Very happy to play it once again, and for sure (because the game is old) the game runs perfectly, no bug.
