    They just open sourced SimCity.
    Now called Micropolis, and available for a source code download!

    There is no reason this cant be ported to the touch now, its a lot of work dont get me wrong but man, would it be cool.

    But for right now, he's going to postpone it to work on improving gpSPhone's speed.

    I installed Transport Tycoon but didnt find it obvious how to play it (having never played it before) so didnt put any time into it.
    Does somebody want to explain how the mouse, left and right click all work on a single touchscreen?

    the same way they work in other apps. 1 finger = left click, 1 finger+held down = mouse, 2 fingers = right click
