About

No one said it would be easy, taking over your father's smuggling empire. It's 2025 and the good years seem long past. So you start with what's left--a barely seaworthy yacht, a few million dollars and the last of your father's business connections who will still speak to you.

It would help if the old man prepared you for this day. But after a childhood of boarding schools around the globe, you hardly knew the man or his business. Now he's gone, and most of his fortune has vanished with him. To make matters worse, he disappeared owing millions to the kind people who approach debts with deadly seriousness. They say you have two years to pay up or... it's best not to think about that. Let's get down to business.



Two Game Modes and an Editor

The game features a campaign mode, with a rich story that explains the world of Arms Dealer in 2025. After one game in the campaign mode, you can play in the sandbox mode, with a variety of custom settings to suit your own playstyle. If you find the game just doesn't suit your ideal environment, you can use the editor to create your own goods to sell, change values, rules, the map and soon much more! Eventually, you can make a total conversion to the game with a powerful set of tools in our editor suite.



A Trading Game
Trade more than 250 real-life weapons with 160 countries around the globe. Start with one small yacht and if you play your cards right, you can eventually control a fleet of boats, trucks and aircraft to carry your goods.

A Diplomacy Game
For an Arms Dealer, everything depends on relationships. To win, you'll have to initiate and foster relationships with suppliers to get the best prices and the most coveted weapons. On the other end, you have to create lasting relationships with your customers to get them to pay higher prices and to purchase larger quantities from you. Those relationships can grow through proven loyalty, by completing special request missions, or by supplying their friends while denying weapons to their enemies. At times, good relationships are all that will save you from your enemies.

A Strategy Game
You must carefully choose the route you take from country to country to reach your destinations. A variety of map filters will help you plan the safest and most profitable routes across the globe. Along your journey, three agencies hound you and try to impose their agendas on you. Competitors also pose a constant threat. Ten of the world's top Arms Dealers are also vying for the most profitable deals and valuable auctions. You can ally with them, track their movements or even try to take them out. Your real nemesis is the APA, an agency whose sole aim is to hunt you down, shut off your access to trading partners and put you out of business. Only by maintaining strategic allies around the globe to protect your passage can you last long enough to raise the money you need to win.

A Collector's Dream
Arms Dealer features more than 250 weapons to collect, with more than 40 ultra-rare prototypes and historical oddities. It will take dozens of hours and dozens of games to find all of them. And your personal collection carries over from game to game. In the game, you will also find a rich perk system of gameplay advantages awarded for various accomplishments. Each one gives you a valuable edge in your battle for success, and survival.

Arms Dealer reviews and comments

Translated by

To the Developer I love tycoon games and hoped that Arms Dealer can once again be something that captivates me for Weeks. Unfortunately, however, it seems that the Game is hardly to no further development. From June to August, as a "major update," they "only" managed to incorporate speed controls. Announce, however, that they are working on another Game. The Moderator and Developer Most-Wanted had not been represented on the Steam forum for over 200 Days. There has also been no Information or Answers since then. To the Game You don't really find in the Game. The Tutorial is nothing explanatory and everywhere it seems as if something is missing. Sure, it's EA, but if nothing has really changed for half a Year, then the Game is dead to me. The Graphics are fine and serve its Purpose. For me, the Fun of the Game is 0. I really want to be able to love the Game, the setting is great and unused, but it just seems to me like a Mouse entertainment Game where you can only click through Menus and then hope something happens that seems understandable to you. Nothing is self-explanatory. It's Only by testing out that you get on it. The Game could become what if work is still being done on it. However, I doubt it very strongly.

I love Trading Simulations and don't bother with Graphics or small Bugs. Unfortunately, with this Game, the Problem is that you can't even complete the Tutorial because you don't open up the Game goal or Function in any Way. The Instructions are limited to "bribe them here press there" without illuminating the Meaning behind the Actions. Even after 10 + Attempts to finish the Tutorial, I still don't have the slightest idea of how this Game works. Another Point that weighs negatively is the utopian Sum of money with which you start. You have no Sense of profit margins and meaningful Investment. It would have been better to let the Player start with a low Starting capital in order to make him rise from "Backyard sale of some Pistols" to "Supplier of weapons of War." That would also prevent being formally slain by the Masses of Options. The Menus are confusing the Buttons hardly Recognizable as Controls. The Tutorial Window is constantly covered by the Menus when opened. Constantly, when you click on minimized Windows, the Option menu opens, adding to the Confusion. Verdict: The Game is totally immature and will not achieve the Status of "sensibly playable," at least for the foreseeable Future. It is a pity that potential has definitely been wasted here.
