I have been playing SimCity BuildIt for about 1 year plus and I still love to play it on my iPhone. I love playing SimCity series on my PC when I was a kid back then. I was so excited when I got to know that SimCity was available in iOS. Due to extreme excitement over the game I started to play non stop for few hours and keep on build, design, and level up to unlock more items to craft and so on.
I hit my first pay wall - not enough storage and it is difficult to get storage items as well in global trade market. Then I quickly search online on tips, guide, and strategy to play this game. There are plenty of tips out there and I spent few hours to look through, after read enough i decide to unlock all storage before proceed to level up my city again. So, I start to spend time at global trade market, join SimCity BuildIt facebook group, adding GameCenter friends and so on to exchange storage items. I thought I could make it to unlock all storage items but eventually I got burn out and get bored about the game then delete it from my phone and leave all related facebook groups.
After few months, I started to miss this game and download again. This time I still insists to unlock all storage items before proceed to level up my city. At the same time, SimCity BuildIt launch new Paris town with even more items to collect from airport. This got me fall in love again, I unlock Paris airport and manage to collect few Paris building items and sell it in global trade market to earn some money. Again after few weeks I got bored as well due to keep on unlock storage items in global trade market. This time I leave it on my phone and I know I will revisit the game after few months. Well, I really know myself well, I play it again when SimCity launch London town and I unlock London airport and manage to collect London building items. It got me jealous when people show off London eye or Eiffel Tower over the internet.
After few months with London I put this game aside again until it launch Contest of Mayors! I found this Contest of Mayors is very interested concept to earn speedup and golden key. The best part of Contest of Mayors is each league only compete against with same level players around the world at least there is a chance I can get top 3 to win some great prize from there! 5 days Contest of Mayors are my first priority to build, launch disaster, collect, and so on instead of focus on air cargo or ship cargo. I hope one day I could win first place in Megalopolitan League to get 2000 sim cash! That would be awesome and I can unlock lots of sim cash decoration!
This Contest of Mayors keep me playing for few weeks before I stop again. Fast forward to latest update which is the Future City and drones flying in the city! Oh, I love this update the most compared to all previous update, of course every new update give me some interest to play for awhile. Even tho I love future city so much but my level still far to unlock future city! I search a little about future city and it seems there is a new currency and new storage are introduced in future city update. I hope this will be easy to unlock and getting future city items will be cheap.
Since unlocking max storage is such a long way to go, along the way I slowly collect land expansion and Vu's tower required items and unlock them slowly without try to "hunt" in global trade market. Currently my Vu's tower is level 14 and my land expansion is about to complete. Oh, I give up on sea expansion for now as it required more quantity per items to unlock and this will restrict me to collect storage items. Sea expansion will be my next project to unlock after complete storage capacity.
That's all for this time, I will update in future when I feel to write more about SimCity BuildIt. Thanks for spending time to read my blog, please do comment below to share what is your thought and what is your hate and love playing SimCity BuildIt game.
In a nut shell:
- Stop level up my city for long time to restrict new items needed in air cargo or ship cargo so I can focus to unlock max storage.
- Need to be very patient to spend lots of time to unlock storage without using simcash
- Love every new update that introduce new features for example Paris, London, Mountain, Contest of Mayors, Future City, and so on
- Compete with same city level players in Contest of Mayors to earn awesome reward
- Love to see hot air balloon, helicopter, drones flying
