A mission mode provides a number of increasingly difficult scenarios to master, each with an individual reward. We watched a simple mission where you simply have to destroy the entire city with a giant wrecking ball, using the Wii remote to guide it over explosive power plants and factories. Other missions require decidedly more strategy. The Power of Science mission tasks you with building a functional spaceport, which requires a low crime rate and a ton of educational resources like universities. One mission forces you to maintain a functioning city where gambling is legal but there is no residential income tax. And of course, the Sweet City mission has you build a city entirely of cakes, pies, and other tasty treats.
