    game plan
    CityVille is also with few problems with its development and game plan. In CityVille, the players are asked to pay "no friend tax" a bit early in the game when compared with other city building games. Every player is not allowed to build their city further without raising your city's population to some limits. The total number of community buildings will be capped with the maximum population of your city. Community buildings are not very difficult to start but it can be time-consuming to finish your play soon. And each building which you build must be staffed by your neighbor's or friends. The player need you spend real money to compensate for the slots if their buildings are not staffed by their friends or else they cannot finish the game. The amount you must pay to compensate for this staffing is trivial, but it still feels useful as you progress in the game by zipping along and then suddenly hitting the wall.

The more franchises in the more cities you have, the larger your headquarters expands as a skyscraper in the sky. This is one of the added feature which is not in any other social games.
