Description

A city building game similar in nature to SimCity but with elements of a real time strategy thrown in to keep you busy.

You play the part of a small time mobster who wants to work his way up in the organization. Your goal is to take over various towns and wipe out the competition at the same time.

You purchase land and place various types of buildings on it such as soup kitchens, drinking dens, peep shows, hospitals, factories etc. You then select a tenant to live/work in the business. Your tenants produce other tenants, workers or cash flow. As the game progresses you will build a gadget factory to manufacture various gadgets necessary to upgrade your businesses.

While you are building the city of your dreams you must also be controling the members of your gang, Workers, Fixers and Gangsters. The workers build the buildings and help take out the competition, The Fixers perform the upkeep on your properties so they don't fall into total disrepair or burn down, they also help eliminate the other teams as necessary. Your gangsters are your enforcers. You need them to take over other properties and to whack the poor mooks that need whacked. You can create teams of men (Sorry the only "Ladies" in the games run the Brothels, after all it is the 1930's) or control your men individually.

You play through 5 scenarios or play on-line against up to three other people.
