Highrise City is a city builder and a economy simulation at once.

Highrise Cityis the next evolution of City Simulations.

Experience a modern take on the genre enriched with a complex resource based economy system. Highrise City combines two genres in new and interesting ways: City Builders and traditional Economy & Resource Management Simulations. Highrise City offers you challenging gameplay and gives you all the possibilites and tools you need to create a living and breathing city. Take care of your city and make it grow and flourish into a giant Metropolis!

Organize and build resource-routes in an efficient way and make sure your economy is well balanced to guarantee a steady growth. By doing so you will be able to create megacities like you've never seen in a game before.
