If you’ve been poking small yellow people for months on The Simpson Tapped Out, and you’re really into Archie Comics, then this new iOS game from Gogii Games is right in your wheelhouse. From 19 July, The Mayor of Riverdale has been taking tips from Homer Simpson and has destroyed Riverdale. You get a chance to rebuild it from scratch the way you want to. Fabulous! We choose Betty and Veronica!
Be one of the first to rebuild Riverdale and collect all your favorite characters in Archie: Betty or Veronica. The gang is back together, and Riverdale needs your help! The Mayor has devastated the town, and taken flight. Now it’s up to you and the gang to rebuild the city. Journey through Riverdale and make it your very own with the help of all your favorite friends including Archie, Reggie, Jughead, Betty, and Veronica.
It does seem to be rather like The Simpsons game, but then again, it was a straight copy of other freemium city building games Smurf’s Village or even Farmville. Like the donut based economy in The Simpsons Tapped Out, this version of Archie: Betty or Veronica seems to be run on a kiss-based economy. What we have to do to get those kisses may involve money, so we wonder what kind of message this game will ultimate send young players. It turns out that Archie Comics are even more progressive than we thought!
