Virtual City now Free for a limited time

Virtual City, the popular city-building simulation game from G5 Entertainment, is now free for a limited time for both the iPhone and iPad. Chiffan reviewed this one awhile back and had this to say (along with a Grab It rating):

There is no use comparing Virtual City to the SimCity series – they are simply completely different games. Whereas the more famous counterpart is centered on high-level city management, Virtual City brings the player closer to the masses, requiring to handle individual bus and truck routes rather than considering city-wide policies. Whether this is good or bad depends more on taste than anything else. In all respects it combines colourful detailed graphics, addictive gameplay and 50 challenging levels across 5 settings into an aspiring small-town mayor’s dream.

Previously priced at $4.99 and $6.99, this freebie shouldn’t be missed by those who enjoy simulation games in the SimCity vein.
