Metropolisim is an economic strategy. The player's task is to expand a small town to become a real metropolis. This is the first production of the Halfway Decent Games studio.
In Metropolisim a great emphasis was placed on the real representation of all aspects of the city's operations. The player must plan expansion, maintain the functionality of the buildings, take care of the welfare of the residents and ensure financial liquidity.
The whole city consists of four zones - residential, commercial, technological and industrial. Each of them has specific density grades, which influence the degree of advancement of the structure. With time, the inhabitants start to demand access to services. In order to provide them, a number of strategic buildings, such as fire brigades and medical facilities, should also be located in the metropolitan area.
An important aspect of the game is also the creation of an efficient road network. Residents will constantly move around the city, using cars and public transport. Traffic is affected by the time of day, when more vehicles leave the streets at certain times.
It is also important to take care of the city's finances. Players must balance the economy by imposing taxes and planning subsequent buildings accordingly.
Metropolisim emphasizes the importance of faithful reconstruction of the functioning of cities. The title enables the creation of a metropolis in which up to 10 000 000 citizens can live at the same time, each with its own individual daily plan. The graphic design itself is made in a minimalist style.
Metropolisim offers support for mods.
