This Town is Run by Kids!

Hey kids! Now you can build and run your own animated town! Put the roads wherever you want. Choose different houses, including log cabins, haunted houses and castles. Place your favorite businesses, including pizza parlors, toy stores, video arcades and movie theaters! Watch people walk, bicycle and skateboard through town as they work, play and have fun. You can even follow them into their homes. Now you can build your own dream town! Well, OK, there are grown-ups, but nothing's perfect.

SimTown is designed to teach kids the basic concepts behind economics (supply and demand), ecology (natural resources, pollution and recycling), and city planning (balancing homes, businesses and recreation) in a fun, easy-to-understand simulation.

Reviews:

Computer Gaming World, December 1994

"Such dry studies as economics need no longer be a drag for pre-teens. The original adult software toy, SimCity, has finally embraced kids, who may now construct their own small towns, complete with apartment communities or even trailer parks. The interface is a simplified version of SimCity, with a friendly graphic look that encompasses such unlikely town dwellings as Moon Domes and Haunted Houses. While the kids are building movie theatres and Burger Barns, they are also learning about supply and demand, pollution, and the realities of running a business."
