In Tycoon City: New York, players aim to become moguls by constructing and customizing hundreds of businesses anywhere and anyway they want in a bustling and realistic simulation of New York City. Players must create and improve their businesses to outclass the competition and become rich and famous in New York City.
New York City is recreated in highly detailed 3D and features such famous landmarks as the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, and Times Square. Over two dozen in-game partners, including TIME Magazine, Toys'R'Us, Virgin Megastore, Staples, Olympus, Marquee, Nokia, Tag Heuer, and D'Agostino's, to name a few, lend the game added realism. As a result of the partnership with TIME Magazine, players that reach the top of their game will see their likeness promoted on virtual TIME Magazine billboards throughout the city.
