CityVille is a very popular game to play on Facebook. If you are looking for a fun game to play with friends or just a game where you can create and run your own city, CityVille lets you make your own city and build on it.

When you start you city it will be just flat and empty land. From the beginning you will have to choose where to put roads and where to put businesses, and homes. As you build up your city you will earn coins that  you can spend on more improvements. You will need to balance the amount of businesses that you create with government offices and homes for all of the employees to live in so that you can make your city continue to grow and earn money.

If you have ever wanted to know what it is like to be mayor of a city or what it might be like to work in the government, planning out your own city and running it every day through this game can give you an idea.

It is interesting to see some of the rewards that you can get as you keep going in the game. You can get extra gifts that help to bring back your energy or that you can give to friends to help with their cities. Energy gifts really help out if you are finding it difficult to build anymore in your city in a day.

Part of what makes this game fun is playing it with your friends. You can help your friends out by giving them energy gifts that you find as your city expands and you can also receive energy gifts which can help you to build more every day. You can also drop citizens from your city off in your friends cities to give them money that they can use to build more improvements. If you can work out a good network of friends you can all help each other so that your cities will grow much faster. If you have a few friends at school playing CityVille it can make the game a lot easier and more fun.

It does take a bit of patience to play CityVille because sometimes you will run out of energy or need to wait in order to unlock certain new parts of the city. But if you find it difficult to wait you can also purchase credits for real money that can help you to build more every day and to expand the size of your city. If you find the game hard, or don’t like waiting to build more this can be just what you need to watch your city grow faster and so you can get more out of CityVille.

Managing a city can take time to get used to but once you have established a good sized city the game can get very interesting. Showing off your cities and working with friends to build bigger cities can be a lot of fun too. CityVille is a bit addictive once you start and also quite easy to get going on, take a look at it and see how big of a city you can build.

CityVille is free to play.
