Developed by LambdaMu and published by Chillingo, the gloriously pixelated Pixel People is a game that seems to answer the question, “What if Tiny Tower were about multidimensional world-building rather than mere vertical expansion?”
Formerly titled After Earth, Pixel People is mainly concerned with Project Utopia, an undertaking that seeks to rebuild the world following an apocalyptic event.
As mayor of the new world of Utopia, you’re basically tasked to build new residences to get more clones.
Wait, what? Clones? Not Bitizens, as they’re called in NimbleBit’s hit building game?

Yes, clones. You see, in Pixel People, you’re also tasked to splice genes of residents and combine their skills to create new types of the titular beings.
Also, you have to ensure that your residents are assigned to the right place and the right job in order to better develop your city.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 4.3 or later, Pixel People is available now in the App Store for free.
Just like Tiny Tower, Pixel People is a freemium game. And whereas Tiny Tower deals with Bux, Pixel People deals with Utopium. Of course, you can buy the game’s special currency via in-app purchases or earn more of it through continuous play.
