Paradox Interactive has just ported its public transportation sim, Cities in Motion, over to the Mac. Now acolytes of Jobs can orchestrate the movements of four great European cities, or dive into the map maker and create their own. Will you make Vienna's buses run elegantly, or create an engineering nightmare that drives your citizens mad? (or at least into the arms of a compact Honda).
I'm no Apple fan by any stretch but I'm glad Mac users are getting more games these days, especially obscure, specialized sims like Cities in Motion.
