About

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 clenched fist! This is a dog-eat dog world of corruption, murder and sex – and as the new kid on the block you’re looking a little like ‘milk on the bone’! Mob Rule is a Real-Time Strategy game that simulates an underworld grab for power, wealth and real estate. You’ll start off as a small time thug and you’ll have just enough assets to build a soup kitchen. Choose a tenant and start working the ‘hood’. Slowly but surely you’ll build up an empire and drive away your competition. You’ll conscript a loyal workforce, fix things with the cops, make the right pay-offs and succeed in your quest for total control. Alternatively, you might just screw up completely and end up sleeping with the fishes! Game Features Over 40 unique and upgradable buildings! Three kinds of troops: Thugs, Repairmen and Gangsters! Ten quirky tenants! Multiple resources to manage and use to construct your empire!

Mob Rule Classic reviews and comments

SO actually a great Game which I bought myself before and enjoyed playing. BUT the STEAM Version here is not grade the Hit ... 1. You have to Download the Language by Downloading a Package ... Here's what to set ... Since a text File Change ... Change pure copy. Only then will it go to one of the other Languages. I would have liked to have been able to adjust it directly in Mov Ruler. 2. in Freeplay Mode, the Game always crashes with me after about 2 minutes. I Don't think so great. Can now only play the "Story Mpdus" and I already had it on the second Day.

Classic Review "Mob Rule Classic" is a Real-time strategy game from 1999. America in the 30S. Prohibition and Economic Crises have created a problematic Situation. Mafia-like Gangs have ripped many Areas under their Nail. There is a lot of Money to be made from illegal business. However, every Gang is always in danger of being rubbed up. From the Police or from competitive Gangs. The isometric Playing Surface is a manageable Surface with some Of the construction Sites specified in the Area. Usually (except in the tutorial mission) we play against other Gangs. We need to build Buildings, assign them Functions and assign senior Staff. A Soup Kitchen, for example, can generate Money, new Residents, or new Workers. In order to be able to build on the Land, we have to buy them at a high price. Later, we can also create Gangsters that we can use against other Gangs to surround enemy Gangsters or damage enemy Buildings. Numerous small Mechanics turn the Game into not only a Build-up game-but above all a balancing game. Above all, it is important to be balanced, to grow without running in one Direction. You have to pay Taxes, keep your Tenants happy, bribe the Police and fend off enemy Attacks. The Aesthetics here are very comichaft. An ever-present Irony makes the Game appear not as a Simulation, but as a casual and Entertainment Title. The Mechanics are quite complex and interact well. It can also get quite hectic, especially when an Attack is on. Even if you might not like the Graphic Style like that and it also seems somehow dusted and old-fashioned, one thing has to be conceded to the Game: Pacing is right. And above all because of this and through its Humor, a Game can still be Fun today. Rating: 7/10 Atmosphere 7/10 Story 6/10 Graphic 7/10 Sound 7/10 Game Mechanics 7/10 Balancing 7/10 Game Pass (technical Ratings always include the Year of Publication) Conclusion: Aged yet entertaining play. 7/10 Overall Rating
