    time management games (or whatever they're called)

    Is it possible to build a simulation game that "runs" on the background even when the app is not running??
    I admit that I haven't looked thoroughly all the possible iOS extensions, I usually stick and use the ones I'm familiar with... but there are some projects in mind that would need that feature (for instance, it would grab the date/time the app was shutdown, do some math when the app was opened again to "compensate" the time left iddle - pretty much like those farm games or a SimCity that would dynamically change)
    Thanks in advance!

    These would be Simulation games, rather than time management I guess?
    This probably would have to do with Grab system time

    thanks for the heads up!
    About the genre, usually sim games do not run on the "background", and since farm-type games need you to administrate your routine to plant-sleep-check-farm-etc or everything spoils, I thought that'd be a proper genre name lol
