When I first saw Dollar Isle I thought cool an online version of Sim City. And in some ways it is. You are the builder of your own city, but the truth is that this game doesn't has as much depth as Simcity. You don't have to balance the wants of the people with things that will make your city grow. I soon realized that Dollar Isle is a cross between Sim City and Farmville and the game play bends toward farmville more then sim city. Ans like farmville you can easily find yourself wasting a lot of time on this game.
