Anno 2205 is a futuristic city-building video game similar to Anno 2070, as opposed to the previous installments which feature a historical setting. In the game, players take on the role of a leader from a corporation and must compete against other corporations in developing future technologies
At the beginning of the game, players are tasked to build different metropolises on Earth. Population increases when more buildings are built, and players are tasked to satisfy and fulfill the needs of their citizens. Besides building houses, players must also produce goods and to build infrastructures like robot production facilities to maintain economy. These buildings can be relocated or moved around by players. Similar to SimCity, different parts can be added to buildings to enhance their functions
Players can also carry out a number of researches, such as putting funds and establishing research facilities to research ways to launch rockets to the moon. Once players finish the research, they can colonize the moon and build cities on its surface(That was Cool). Resources of the moon, such as Helium-3, are vital to the development of the cities on earth and can be sent back to earth.
The game also introduces a session mode, which allows player to control and manage their cities both on Earth and on the moon at the same time. Resources vary in different sessions, as a result, players must set up trade routes between different colonies, so that resources and raw materials from a city can be used in another city
A single hands-on session lasting barely an hour, with an alpha build and a pile of resources Of course, quests, limited resources and varied landscapes will extend the lifespan, as they did for Banished, as will your own quest for perfection, but it’s a little worrying.
While most of Anno 2205 felt quite similar to other city-building games, leveraging unique strengths of one city to prop up others thanks to different climatic conditions is a solid concept that could lend itself to some interesting situations(You will be Surprised). The last SimCity attempted something similar only to be weighed down by its lack of scale and scope.Anno 2205 doesn’t disappoint
One More Interesting Fact , If you add up all the digits on any of the Anno series they sum up to 9 (1602,1503,1701,1404,2070,2205)
