As promised, EA have released SimCity upon Apple's App Store. Unsuspecting iPhone owners the world over are now downloading the game, unaware that...this may be an iPhone game that actually delivers.

Of course, a proper review of the game will (hopefully) be forthcoming, but I've been playing around with it all day and can report that it's SimCity, it looks good, and aside from a few bugs here and there it works.

The graphics look like SimCity 3000, the gameplay's closer to SimCity 2000, and everything you expect from the game - down to advisors, utilities and disasters - is in there.

If you're tempted, it'll set you back $10.
