Welcome to Bounders and Cads, a turn-based strategy game for players of all ages. Old Aunt Edna has died leaving a fortune to be claimed. The money will go to the one rascal who can play the dirtiest tricks and earn the most money in business dealings. Buy up businesses, sabotage your opponents, deploy tricky strategies, and swindle your way to an inheritance. Beware, though, Aunt Edna’s estranged husband, the Brigadier, is lurking about- and he’s very, very angry...
Bounders and Cads is a colorful little game where your objective is to raise the largest sum of money by buying and developing businesses, but also through less conventional and honest ways. You'll get a boardgame feel right from the start, as you play a coloured pawn. The gameplay in itself is a rather unconventional Monopoly. You get to buy a number of businesses, upgrade them through larger levels of cost and production and attach different bonuses, while also keeping an eye out for the opposition's developments. If they're doing better than you are, you can sabotage their production or transportation, but you can expect a retaliation. While the AI works well enough, this is much more fun when played in the company of your friends. The graphics are very colourful and look well enough. The characters are cartoonish and make fun of corrupt officials or sneaky executives, and occasionally provide a good natured laugh, thanks to the solid voice acting. The music is also very well chosen, consisting of a number of retro/jazzy tracks, which suit the game's atmosphere really well. In conclusion, Bounders and Cads is a well designed, fun game, but in order to get the most out of it, you'll need to play against human opposition.
