And in news from Over The Pond, the Australian Bureau of Statistics have created an iOS game that brings together the city simulator genre with actual Census data. Who needs to control a mythical town, when you can control an actual town mythically?!

Instead of saying to yourself “I could run this town better”, now you can give it a shot on your iOS device. In what is becoming an interesting trend from various government agencies and their promotion of data and services, you can now play with the Australian town of your choice. What’s more, the initial reports indicate this free offering is both polished and professional, as well as being rather fun.
