|Fans of the previous city-building sims will feel right at home here. You start out by building a road, and putting little house lots alongside it. Soon you're placing wells, firehouses, and more advanced structures.|
You're learning about Chinese history and culture as you play, working with shrines, hemp shops, mills, and more. You build up your trade and commerce, and fortify your city against attacks. The graphics are great, and you really get involved in the success of your town.
There are even Feng Shui aspects to the game - placing your buildings in auspicious areas of the town help your prosperity!
A fun new addition to the city-strategy series, and a non-violent way to spend countless hours. Recommended!
