Combining building-oriented gameplay with a healthy dose of Latin American political intrigue - Tropico bundles it all up in a fun, totally original and utterly addictive package.
The game uses a modified version of the 3D Railroad Tycoon 2 engine that provides very high-res sumptuous landscapes complete with ambient animations such as clouds, people going about their daily lives, wildlife and trees swaying in the breeze.
Over 100 structures to erect, from banana plantations to copper mines and
casinos to fresh spas. PopTop have put a lot of research work in, and visually

You will need to decide what kind of a leader you are – your personal history, flaws and qualities. Will you be a father to the nation or a heartless corrupt dictator? Naturally how you are will immediately effect how your people view you.
The People Unlike other similar games where cash, conquest or property are the key to your success, in Tropico the people are. To stay in power you will need their support, either though good deeds, bribery or less subtle means of persuasion!
The AI – Whilst you have no direct control over your people they will react to what you build and how you treat them – build a hospital - and a doctor will arrive – a mine – workers will begin to mine but starve them of food and eventually you’ll have a revolt! Another unique aspect of Tropico is that every citizen is an individual with a different background, attitude and motivation from the next person.
Classic Strategy – how will you treat your people? What will you import/export? Who to befriend USA or USSR? Bad weather coming – time to rebuild! Rebels in the forests – better build a outpost – build it and soldiers will come and take control – or will they?
Fun! Tropico is completely Light-hearted and tongue-in-cheek – being the bad guy has never been so tempting or as fun!
