SimCity on the SNES

In this version of SimCity, the monster attack is replaced with Bowser's attack. A description screen tells that he ended up in SimCity while searching for Mario and Luigi, and he's symbolically shown having wheels. In-game, though, he looks just like in the Mario series, but he's giant, being of Godzilla-like dimensions.

The change is also obviously applied to the monster attack scenario "Tokyo, 1961", describing Bowser's attack in the introduction.

Also, if the player's city has a population of 500,000 residents, the player will earn a Mario statue.

Finally, one of the two unlockable scenarios, called "Free City U.S.A.", has as the only geographical feature a forest in the center of the map in the shape of Mario's face. This scenario is set in the year this game was released (1991) and the only task is to build "Marioland".
