City Life DS, created by the team that delivered the critically-acclaimed City Life series for the PC, invites would-be mayors and urban planners to employ their creativity and Nintendo DS stylus to design, build and manage thriving metropolises on the go.

Players are challenged to deliver the ultimate city through efficient transportation routes and over 150 different building types – including famous world landmarks. To succeed, players must manage the town's budget, housing, employment, entertainment and additional social services for its residents. Six distinct socio-economic groups add to the challenge. Rather than pleasing only one generic type of inhabitant, players must learn to attract and retain a diverse and harmonious population, drawing from all six cultural groups, balancing their unique and often conflicting needs and expectations.

  • Scenario-driven Campaign, problem-solving focused Challenge, and sandbox-styled Free Building modes further ensure extensive replay value across three distinct terrains and fifteen different maps.
  • A proven gaming experience delivers the best elements of the top-selling PC-based City Life series to a new audience. The portable version takes advantage of the Nintendo DS stylus to drag and drop buildings, design transportation routes and solicit feedback about the population and progress.
  • Three gameplay modes challenges a broad range of gamers – Campaign mode delivers story and goal-based scenarios; Challenge mode provides particularly tricky situations for problem solvers; and Free Building mode offers an open-ended sandbox.
  • Six distinct socio-economic groups challenge the player to balance normal municipal constraints with the unique and often conflicting needs of the city's inhabitants – housing, employment, entertainment, health care, safety, education and other social services.
  • More than 150 different buildings, including famous land marks – the Eifel Tower, the Empire State Building, the Kremlin, and others – coupled with three distinct terrain types and five maps per terrain ensure a new experience with each city constructed.
  • Friendly, animated advisors (typically) help players learn the basics and offer ongoing progress feedback.
