The graphics have vastly improved, although the gameplay is still mostly based on charts, statistics, and so on.

An economy simulator focused on managing a city throughout two centuries, starting in 1820. It was developed by Fragment Productions, the creators of the Rescue series.

Another interesting feature is the “unofficial” part of being a mayor — we can resort to various political and personal games as well as corrupting and blackmailing unfriendly persons.
