    Developer SomaSim has admirably balanced fun and strategy in this great city builder set against the rich backdrop of the Old West. It’s a shame that the cities feel so similar to each other and the surrounding environments so bland, as otherwise it’s immensely enjoyable. [Episode 5, June 2014]

    Fun and addictive, and a great way to get into the genre. [Issue#249, p.77]

    SomaSim brings us a historical city builder for iPad, but 1849 isn't quite surefire paydirt.

    1849 is a refreshingly straight-up city-builder with a snappy mission-based structure, but the route to success can feel a little restrictive and one-note at times.
