SimCity 2000 is the successor to the ground breaking city simulation game SimCity. You are once again the mayor, but this time you can fully customize the terrain before building your city. The graphics are isometric, and displayed in 256-color 640×480 pixel SVGA whereas the original had 16-color 640×350 pixel EGA graphics displayed in a top-down fashion.
SimCity 2000 adds numerous features over the original such as the ability of building “light” zones, subways, hospitals, colleges, zoos, and arcos which are actually cities in cities. You can now give names to places, and your city is surrounded by neighboring towns with which you can make trade. Finally, instead of the poll in the first game you now have the option of reading several newspapers to get an idea of your progress.
