CityVille is a social game on Facebook. The goal in the game is to found and grow a city. The player can build both residential, commercial buildings, roads and various decorative items such as trees. Both will generate income over time (persistently) which must be collected by the player. When the player doesn't collect the income in timely fashion no new income will be generated.

The game makes use of an energy system meaning that the player can only perform a limited number of actions before he or she has to wait for the action bar to refill again, which happens persistently. Players can also start businesses in other peoples cities by requesting permission of one of their franchises to set up shop there. Players can name every commercial building they place themselves. Most Farmville mechanics (plowing land, sowing seeds, reaping produce) are also available to the player.

The game features a number of social features such as visiting friends, multiple types of currencies, in-game micro-transactions to buy new buildings or increase the city boundaries. [source:mobygames]
