Simulation games. These titles put emphasis on simulating authentic (or fictional) actions in the most realistic manner possible. They allow the player e.g. to control civil (digger, crane, bus) or military vehicles (plane, tank, warship). Life simulation games (especially The Sims series) are very specific example of titles in this category, because they can simulate almost infinite number of aspects of human lives. more

The foundations of PC as a gaming platform are currently systems of digital distribution of video games (Steam, Origin, Uplay) and MMO games that mostly work in f2p (free-to-play) model.

An original mix of simulation and logic game from the British developer Spiderling, which lets players construct inventive siege weapons that will help them annihilate enemy troops and fortifications.

In order to succeed you have to use the available parts to create a unique siege weapon able to crush your opponent’s resistance and resist enemy counter-attacks. Players’ creativeness is restrained by nothing; all it takes is a bit of imagination to go from constructing only standard medieval siege weapons, to flame throwers, tanks, simple flying machines, and anything in between. The game features full 3D graphics, and its relatively low system requirements were achieved by reducing the field of view to the nearest area.
