The Apple App Store is adding the popular SimCity to its increasing list of games available for the iPhone and iPod touch.

 

SimCity is available for the low cost of $9.99 and features well thought out controls. There are some reported bugs left over from the Demo and Beta stages but for the most part the initial reviews are good.

SimCity hits the iPhone and iPod Touch

While some of those issues have been fixed--the game runs fairly snappy now, when loaded--I'm experiencing the game crashing and a slowdown in actions like zooming. From the early reviews I'm seeing on SimCity's App Store page, I'm not alone in experiencing this.

 

And unfortunately, loading even the more bare-bones previously saved city takes a long time (I'm talking minutes). Maybe for some, that will just add to the nostalgic experience--I remember this was an issue on my old PC back in the day as well. For others, it'll be annoying.
