The Virtual City Playground 1.6 Update for Mac is coming soon.

Update your Virtual City Playground and make your most ambitious dreams a reality. Make your citizens happier by launching an Easter-related event on the Plaza and building a church for them.

About the game:

Virtual City Playground is the free follow-up to G5 Entertainment's smash hit, Virtual City. Virtual City Playground maintains many of the first game's basic concepts, but adds a new style of gameplay that will be familiar to players of games like Cityville. The game has won the hearts of millions of players worldwide and has topped all major casual game charts.

In this "Sim City"-esque game, your goal is to build and grow a prosperous city of your dreams. The game is deep and enjoyable with a gameplay mechanic that is easier to understand immediately, rather than the huge complexity of similar simulation city builders.

Unleash your inner mayor – build anything you wish and everything that makes your citizens happier: dwellings, industrial buildings, shopping malls, and places of entertainment. Make your city a better place to live by recycling garbage, adding hospitals and fire stations, planting trees, and upgrading buildings to make them more eco-friendly. In Virtual City Playground even your most ambitious dreams can be a reality!
