Mob Rule Is Not Your Father's
Welcome to 1930's America. Thanks in a large part to
Prohibition, organized crime is on the rise and a number of criminal families
are fighting for national control of the illicit markets - booze, prostitution,
numbers, you name it - it's all sprouting up like weeds through Johnny Law's
Real Time Strategy - with Simulation
Here is a real time strategy game that simulates an
underworld grab for power, wealth and real estate. You start off small as a
local thug. You've got just enough assets (property, cash and workers) to build
a soup kitchen. Choose a tenant and start working the hood. You'll need more
workers. In time you can transform workers into "thugs." Play your cards right
and you can drive away your competition and move up the food-chain. From
factories and flop houses to strip parlors and porn houses you build your
fiefdom block-by-block - body-by-body. With a different understanding of the
term equal-opportunity employer, you'll conscript a loyal work force of
tenants, workers, thugs, repairmen, gangsters and fixers - each with their own
particular skill set. To dominate your local hood you'll need to fix things
with the cops, make the right pay-offs and keep the competition at bay. Your
quest for total criminal control will take you through 5 cities - from the jerk
water 'burb of Hickstown to the Mecca of Organized Crime, Capital city.
Your quest for dominance is a block-by-block turf war
against rival families and the Government. It'll be a long-haul comprised of
bloody street wars with rival gangs, shakedowns by the cops, and payola up the
ying yang - but if you grease the right palms and take out the right garbage,
you'll walk away with a cut of EVERY illegal activity in the nation. Screw up -
and you sleep with the fishes!

5 Cities Just Waiting for Your
A tiny backwater 'burb with nary an
illegal still... until you arrive on the scene.
It's a snowed-out wasteland just
waiting for someone to expose it's penchant for corruption.
A decently-sized city composed
principally of slums, your work here is halfway done when you arrive... can you

Don't be barking up the wrong
tree in this seemingly comatose community.
The Mother Lode. Overrun with
powerful, rival families, Chicago is your ultimate proving ground. If your
business acumen and paranoid tendencies are JUST right, you'll walk away
