Download and unzip the file. Now backup the game and finally save. Copy the downloaded folder inside the free play folder inside the application directory. Now replace the document folder and you are finally done. Now you can play the simtown game on your windows 7 PC. You need to first install the game and then you need to follow these steps.

Basically, installing “SimTown” on Windows 7 is not a problem. You can simply download it on your computer and copy it to a local folder but playing it is another thing. You see, SimTown is a very old DOS game published in 1995 by Maxis. Since it is a DOS game, you cannot play it out-of-the-box on your Windows 7.

SimTown old DOS strategy game

You need a DOS emulator to run the game in DOS environment like DOSBox DOS Emulator. This DOS emulator requires at least Windows 9x or higher. If you already have a CD of SimTown, just copy the contents of the disc to an empty folder and run the game in DOSBox.

To play the game in DOS mode, you need to learn how to run commands in the DOS prompt or command prompt. If you need to download the game, visit SimTown on and download it.
