Pretty good game. Please address.

Game has smooth frame rate on iPhone XS max. Please increase frame rate on iPhone 12 series phones. Right now (11-25-20) frame rate is very choppy. Thanks! Game is fun!

Phone overheating?

Anybody else suffers from extreme battery drain and phone overheating from playing a few minutes of this game? I have the iphone 8 plus. I suffered with the same issue a few years ago with a different iphone.

Popularity contest

I’ve been playing this game for years and years and my city is pretty BIG! But things keep changing and now it’s just a popularity contest. I tried to join a group to make friends and help out but they kicked me out before I could do anything. And there’s sooo many things constantly being added that it’s confusing me now, I don’t know where to click. I liked it better when it was easy and less difficult to play and when we didn’t have to join groups for certain things because they’re mean people who think they’re better than me that run those competitions groups and it ruined the fun for me, I had to delete the app. There’s too much going on.

Don’t Even Bother with this App

It’s the day before Thanksgiving in 2020. I open up SimCity Buildit, expecting to see a new event track that all players can access with equal fairness. Instead, I get an event which forces you to buy resources with real money to make any progress... Normally I would be unfazed about this; I know that this Friday would typically be Black Friday. But it’s the day before Thanksgiving. And Covid-19 cases are higher than they have ever been. No one has money right now except for the rich, especially not for a game. After this, I am never going to spend money on this game ever again. I have already wasted almost $150 on stupid things such as this.
