It's an honor to see TheoTown on this list :)

I would say it depends. Our graphics are a little bit simpler, but we try to provide a comparable game experience to the mobile platform which is, as far as I now, new.

Personally, I like Cities: Skylines because of its incredibly flexible road building possibilities and the brilliant 3D engine.

On the other hand, I love TheoTown because I love pixel graphics and it is a really great game for mobile devices :wink:
The box label said, "Requires Windows 10 or better.", so I bought an Amiga Computer.

Well, SC3 was my first city-building game. And i had totally loved this genre but not the game :) SC4 was much better but i hated it too.
Then i found CXL. Great game, almost perfect! But it was really buged.
Then SC5 and CS was released. I just ignored SC5 and start to play CS. It's also almost perfect. CXL and CS are both great games, no one of them is better, they are different. But CXL is "dead" and CS is "alive".
About TT. Great game and it will be greater! And i have to say TT is the only city-buildin game on android. I know there are SC Buildit and other, but they are city-farming games. It's just waste of time.
So what is my choice? I have to choose between CS and TT :)

My first city building game was Sim City 3000. A long time after that when I got an iPad I played Sim City Build-It, but I hated it because it was P2W. Awhile after that I searched "city building games" on the Google Play Store and found TheoTown.

Heres my opinion.
CS: Is by far the best city building game ever, i play it on my laptop with a HD4000 graphics but this is on the lowest settings, but i just can't get into it anymore.
CXL: Is okish, it acts like a city builder but lags when you reach high population due it still using 1 core rather than multi cores, very weird.
SC: Is a good game but it has small maps, roads don't always snap and some times roads and the pavements are out of place.
TT: Now i for one is all about graphics, anything pixelated is a no go for me like minecraft the graphics are horrible because its all pixelated but thats how minecraft is meant to be, now TT also doesn't have top graphics but weird enough i absolutely love this game, the good thing with TT compared to others mentioned you can take this out with you, car journeys, bus journeys anywhere really and the best thing of all... its free :)
So i have to vote TT on this one.

Never played the above 3, because I literally didn't have computers since the last one. But I'll leave a review.

Cities: Skylines to me, is one of a fully contained city simulation games, because why? Everything is in the game itself, and even you can mod it. But the not-so good thing is, it requires so much size that most of computers can't fit it. You have to at least buy a gaming PC, and that's no-cheap thing.

Cities XL, never saw it for the first time, so I dunno how the game works, whether as same as CS or not.

Now for SimCity, the bad thing is that the game itself was limited, and you only can mod little things. EA is disappointing.

TheoTown to me, is one of the best free games I could have imagine. Even if it's just a pixelated graphic, the key to its success is the Sandbox mode, where you can do anything you want. Even the community is Top Notch, and the game's always Up-To-Date.

So based on all my opinions about the games mentioned above, I'll choose TheoTown

Simcity is one of my very first city-building game I've ever played I usually play it using an emulator, at first it looks confusing but I got into it
Simcity buildit is kinda pay to win so...I'm still ok to it

and Theotown...WOW!
looks like SC2K but the land is green instead of yellow lol

PS: I have the hacked version of SC Buildit

Plz don't tell EA about that ;-;

I've played SC1 on a SNES emulator, but I couldn't get into it because of the music.

Personally, I've only plays theotown. I plays SimCity for a short time and it was complete bull. The new updates that are planned to theotown will probably expand it wider than SimCity. Ive also played megapolis, which has a lot ofbuilding and I couldn't be bothered with.
hey, im jbowes! i play theotown not as much anymore, but its still one of my favourite games.
i occasionally make plugins and yt videos on theotown. :fire

I think it depends on the platform.

If we take PC, the best is, of course, Cities Skylines. Cities XL and SimCity are also good, but they have lass functionality and more bugs.

If we take mobile platform, the best is TheoTown. It has very big functionality, almost no bugs and especial grafics, which I very love. The only plus of SimCity are 3D grafics, but basically it's a very uninteresting game which was made only for pumping money. OpenTTD isn't very bad, but in some ways it isn't understandable. About Megapolis and other similar games everything is clear.
