How You Start Off In Both Games
When you start Megapolis, you have a pretty modest plot of land to build you first city on. If you’ve ever play any social or mobile games, you probably already know what the main gameplay will play like. The first thing you’ll be doing is building housing for your citizens, and each new housing unit increases your city’s population as you click finish
If you didn’t guess it by its name, Megapolis is essentially a simulation of a sprawling, urban metropolis. You are building a major city filled with tall skyscrapers and glamorous attractions. It’s essentially what you’ve probably already seen in your real life on a daily basis. This is familiar territory being explored in this game.
On the other hand, things are just a bit more exotic in Village City Island Sim 2. You get your own beautiful and lush island to settle on and you may do whatever you desire to do on this island. Unlike Megapolis, you can also opt out of building a city and decide to build a village instead. When you choose to build a village instead of a city, the choices in housing and business change as well.
Megapolis is a bit like playing an RPG. The actions you take will give you experience points, a unique and innovative approach to the genre , and you can essentially grind as much you want to. Only time and money put any restrictions on you, and that’s mostly how much you can invest in you buildings. The rewards for completing quests are much greater compared to what you normally do that they definitely guide the gameplay for at least the first portion of the game. That puts the more open-ended sandbox features away for later in the game.
The gameplay of Village City Island Sim 2 doesn’t have this same quest oriented approach. It’s open ended from the beginning and doesn’t try to push you in any direction. If you want to build the biggest city you can go ahead and do it. If you want a quiet peaceful village, that’s equally acceptable. What you want is what you’ll get.
Megapolis is clearly the smoother of the two, but Vilage City Island Sim 2 is the more creative game. If you want a smooth, guided experience pick Megapolis. If you want something different choose Village City Island Sim 2.
