Virtual City Playground is the free follow-up to G5 Entertainment's smash hit, Virtual City.

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!
