Default Sim Tower... wtf happened to it?

Anyone ever play "Sim Tower"? One of the sim-city spinoffs where you construct a tower/hotel and work your way up to 5 stars? It was from like mid 90's, I installed it and have been playing it lately. Anyone else miss any of these games? (Sim city 2000, 3000, Sim Ant Farm, etc.)

Yea they're easy, but fun as hell. Crysis or counterstrike don't even touch these old *** games. Hell I'm still a huge Heroes of Might and Magic II fanboy, I play that **** every week.

I wish they'd come out with a new version of sim tower, it'd be fun as ****.

I love to play Sim City for the SNES. I'm still trying to get the Megalopolis designation. You have to have 500,000+ people in your city to reach that level. The best I've ever done is about 460,000.

I think I'm gonna pick up simcity 4000 deluxe (apparently sim city societies is a bunch of garbage; it's all micromanagement). Only problem I've heard is it has compatibility problems with XP, and same with simcity 3000. Another problem is the lack of available time to play these games

Edit: NOTHING beats blasting your entire city off to space like in Sim City 2000... Ultimate WIN.

SimTower is more of an elevator management game than hotel game.

I was still in elementary school when I first played that game. It was fun until everyone started turning red.

Oh ****, I remember playing this game, getting to a certain floor, and not being able to go any further because I needed a lobby or something and couldn't for my life figure it out. I'm getting annoyed just thinking about it.

Best games ever. I never got a good chance to play sim city 3000 because it kept making my old computer run slow as hell. I need to find another copy of that game.

Use landform #061 iirc, you get a shitload of land to build on. I would also get the city to where it would make alot of money, then let it run in auto all night. You's wake up in the morning to either an almost inexhaustable amount of cash, or a city of ashes
