Engage in a tropical power trip! Become the dictator of a remote island during the Cold War. Charm, persuade, intimidate, oppress, or cheat your people to stay in power! Are you a kind and generous leader? A corrupt and ruthless tyrant ruling with an iron fist? Turn your island into a tourist paradise or an industrial power. Make promises to the electorate or slander political adversaries to get the crucial votes for the upcoming elections. Send your avatar to congratulate the people, visit the island of another player, or just sun-bathe on the Caribbean beach.

When I was a born Tropican I use to listen to Juanito speak on the radio. He would say news good and bad especially about El Presidente. He said that everyone is dying from starvation and shacks are built almost everywhere. He was on El Presidente's side when things got bad and good and will never stop accepting his failures. El Presidente was joining the Communist superpower and Juanito still cheered for him. There was a lot of houses being built, tenements, apartments, country houses and farms. Our island OIPKWQGIJWGPIYOLOSWAGVILLE was getting circled around by American gunships. The Russians defended OIPKWQGIJWGPIYOLOSWAGVILLE and I knew there was hope for El Presidente.
20 years later it turned into Las Vegas but with 50x the tourists.













EL PRESIDENTE IS LOVE, EL PRESIDENTE IS LIFE.

Brilliant city building game with lots of tropical flavour, lush graphics and a fun soundtrack. There's a nice political element to the game which means you have to keep citizens with different tastes and needs happy so that you are re-elected and avoid rebel attacks etc. There's also plenty of things to build that cover different aspects such as housing, entertainment, tourism and industry etc. Every citizens life plays out in great detail too and from the moment they arrive on the island you can follow them around from work to home and everything inbetween. Highly recommended.

If you like town building/management game then you might like this game. This game is fun to play but it can get bored quickly if you play it like everyday because it can be repetitive. However, if you play this game like once a week then you should be fine.

It takes a bit of time to get used to this game and I suggest you to read the guides in the community hub if you do not know how to play it. Overall this is a good game. Give it a try if you like town building/management game.

I bought this game during the Summer Sale, back when an average of about less than 60 people played it daily. Apparently about a month ago it was a free on GOG and now about a little than a 1,000 or so people play it daily on average, so I think now was a better time to publish a review of this game so far. Basically, I've just screwed around in the free play mode, but I think I got the core gameplay down and all. Great gameplay, great soundtrack, great humor, great game. Once I play more of it, I'll edit this review to make it more thorough.

I thought Tropico would be my jam to go back to my RTS and city building roots, I guess not. I may have to think twice about tapping back to Sim City.

It's okay if you like it, but I really don't. I'm glad I didn't pay any money for this.

This is exactly as the SIMCITY game but only funnier and on a lower scale. If in SIMCITY you had thousands of citizens and these kind of stuff, here on the other hand you have to build everything a man in your village thinks he wants.Anyway I won;t tell anymore here and i'll let you find by yourself playing the game.^^
Mainly it's very nice and fun game, especially if you read what you have to do and the conditions they put you. The radio guy is pretty fun also, but it gets repetitive so i suggest that you should mute him after awhile.
