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!

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. About time this game is back!
    by 1stMac, USA - Jul 25th 2014

    This hands down is by far the best EVER Sim City game! It's not dumbed down to where all you do is plop buildings like some of the previous versions. It takes skill and planing. Now all we need is the fine folks at to start making more Mac compatible buildings.

  7. Love this game.
    by beckydavey, Australia - Jul 20th 2014

    I was playing this back in the day. My old iMac 7 was playing this fine until Mavericks came along :( Then this was re-released! I am very happy. even though my video card isn't officially supported (Radeon HD 2600) it plays perfectly well untill massive cities. Even then the pixelation for a brief moment is fun to watch.

  8. Sim City done right!
    by owsleyiii, USA - Jun 22nd 2014

    A return of a classic! All the tools to make a great city, cool graphics, sounds & music, and compelling and addictive gameplay. Just a few minutes/hours more…time passes quickly once you're locked in ; )

  9. Awesome Game!
    by Issac Dickinson, USA - Jun 6th 2014

    This is such an Awesom Game, it's clean, tidy, predictable and now that it's been re-released, stable on modern machines. They probably are going to make more money off this re-rease then on the new SimCity!

  10. This is my all time favorite game
    by curtischin, China - May 17th 2014

    I bought the game, and am so happy that I am back with the SimCity 4 again. Nothing new about this game but I still love it.

    Only there is a problem with Aspyr version, the game crash after a longer while playing, I hope this could be resolved sooner, and this is also the only reason I rated 4 stars instead of 5.
