    "This game is less of a city building app and more of a zombie app. It focuses more on the rebuilding of one building and gathering survivors to help rebuild. Not really an entire city."

    "I am a huge fan of any app that allows me to build my own little city. I was recently searching in the app store to try and find a new city building app and came across Little Big City. This may be the best city building app that I have ever had the opportunity to play! I love being able to be the mayor of this city and help out my neighbors live a wonderful life. I am even able to try out similar mini-games when I need to take a break from playing mayor. Download this game today!"

    "This used to be a really fun and great city game. Too bad they went a little nuts with their ads, it's not even fun to play anymore so I just don't. "

    "This is an good solution for this search query city building apps as it does meet the requirement of a city building app. This is a game though so the term does not specify whether one needs and actual city building app or a game interface. So I rate this a 3 as it does meet the criteria of being an app that builds a type of city."

    "Classic city building game that's fun to play and it doesn't have a lot of transactions that make it expensive to get into. You can go at your own pace and really decided how little or how much to play. For those of us who love building cities this game is great for killing some time, although not really in-depth."
