The tutorial’s horribly fiddly, but don’t let that put you off. I bought this yesterday as it was on sale and for a few minutes thought I’d made a terrible mistake. Never fear, though, because after a few frustrating minutes it all starts feeling a lot more natural. It’s always going to be a little awkward, fitting all those functions on to a touch screen, but it works better than you might expect.

Seems to be pretty complete, too. A few animations might be missing – the big versions do show trains on the railway tracks, don’t they? – and I’d like some clearer feedback about what improvements are most urgent, but other than that, it’s all good. Certainly kept me occupied for a fair while yesterday evening.

I’ve just been messing around in the tutorial city so far, might take the plunge into a brand new city soon.
