SimCity BuildIt, the popular simulator version for mobiles, has become the most played title in the franchise's 26-year history. The information is from EA Mobile itself. Launched in December last year, the game has nearly 40 million users. According to the publisher, gamers spend about 40 minutes a day with the game in five or six games.
"I think SimCity BuildIt has broken out for a number of reasons. First and foremost, the game was made by a deeply experienced team with an incredible creative and technical force, "comments Jason Willing, vice president of EA Mobile, as reported in Venture Beat.
The trump of the title lies in its way of working with mobile platforms. Still as Willing explains, controls and elements that cherish efficiency in finger-handling, relatively short games and, of course, franchise marks such as natural disasters and service simulation were some of the things that won over players.
