Gamers looking for a new mobile phone were given more reason to consider the Apple iPhone 3G this week with the launch of a new title.

EA Mobile announced the release of one of its most popular, long-running games, SimCity for use with the handset as well as the wireless-enabled iPod Touch media player.

SimCity allows players to take control of their very own city and its occupants, - building a virtual environment around the avatars and allowing them to interact with it and one another.

Adam Sussman, vice-president of publishing for EA Mobile in the Americas and Asia, said the decision to launch an iPhone version of the game was born of its popularity on other platforms.

"Easy to learn, a lifetime to master, it's one of the largest mobile games ever produced, providing our customers with hundreds of hours of great gameplay," he said.

Those recycling mobile phones to buy a new iPhone may also be interested to hear that the ability to manage waste in a green way has also now been built into the game.
