Description official descriptions

A city building game similar in nature to SimCity, but with elements of real time strategy thrown in the mix.

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

Gameplay involves purchasing land and placing various types of buildings on it (such as soup kitchens, drinking dens, peep shows, hospitals, factories, etc.), then selecting a tenant to live/work in the business. Tenants produce other tenants, workers or cash. As the game progresses, a gadget factory also becomes available to manufacture various gadgets necessary to upgrade businesses.

While building the city of their dreams, the player must also manage the members of their gang, who come in three different types. The Workers build the buildings and help take out the competition. The Fixers perform the upkeep on the properties so they don't fall into total disrepair or burn down, and also help eliminate the other teams as necessary. The Gangsters are enforcers sent to take over other properties and whack the poor mooks that need a beating.

The player can create teams of their own men (the only female characters in the game running the brothels) or control them individually.

Mob Rule offers solo play through 5 scenarios or online play against up to three other players.
