Vegas City is a simulation game where you can create your own Las Vegas strip complete with casinos, resorts, high rollers and more. Developed by Digital Chocolate and originally released onto Facebook, Vegas City is slated to come to Android in the near future. Soon you’ll be able to become filthy rich, in-game anyways.
Basically Vegas City is like Sim City but smaller, less complicated. You’ll only have to worry about building a successful Las Vegas style strip and just deal with hotels, resorts, guests and things of that nature instead of all the extra problems like traffic, pollution and natural disasters. Vegas City also uses Facebook connect and the more friends you have, the more money you will make.
- Highly details graphics
- Build up to 16 hotel casinos, including Golf Resorts, Royal Casinos, Tropical Deluxe and more.
- Reserve your rooms for tourists, gamblers, honeymooners, rock stars and more. The bigger the guest, the higher the returns.
- Add animated fountains, lit up palm trees, and other decorations to make your customers pay more for their stay.
- Complete missions to earn your income and get hours of fun entertainment
- Invite your friends as managers to get even more out of your casinos
There is a high level of customization through various items you can earn in-game which all go towards you making it big. Another great feature, thanks to Facebook Connect, is that you can hire friends to manage your casinos and resorts… and fire them if they do a terrible job. Currently there are 3.5 million people playing Vegas City between Facebook and iOS.
While staying true, for the most part, to the general idea of Vegas, the lack of certain key elements, such as hookers, may effect the game’s overall growth. Hopefully this will be fixed before the Android version is released. No word on an exact date or price although it is free on the iPhone so chances are it will be free for Android. Check out the press release below.
