One of the most popular games for the PC was ported to the snes as a launch title. It quickly became one of the biggest selling games for the system. The point of the game is to try and build the biggest possible city, while maintaining the balances of crime, pollution and taxes. The smooth controls make playing with a controller a breeze. The game also allows you to destroy your cities by introducing various disasters (including a parading Bowser).
