The game allows players to become the mayor of a virtual city and to oversee its development into a large metropolis. Players can perform tasks, which include farming, construction, and rent collection in their city using energy points. The amount of energy available increases as the user gains in experience levels, up to a maximum of 30, or 37 with the dam addition. The energy points are replenished automatically at a constant rate.
The player can also visit their neighbor's city and perform up to 5 different jobs every 12 hours. This gives the user reputation points which provides the user with a free goods bonus and one or two heart requests with each reputation level-up and increases the amount of energy, XP and coins bonuses available on a daily basis. Players can send other players gifts and help them in some of the goals.
