Sim Junta – A game of dirty politics!
You are the new dictator of Risuena, a small and poor country of the third world. You have just seized power after a bloody coup and your intentions are to stay in power as long as you can, to rip this country off, transfer the money to your secret Swiss bank account and of course, stay alive and enjoy your wealth.
The problems in your plan are the various parties of Risuena's society who also want to benefit and survive throughout your Junta, the Guerrillas who try to seize power, the Americans who support your dictatorship but expect something in return and the next men in power after you, who are waiting for a chance to betray you!
Sim Junta is developed as a retro game of the 80's 16-bit computers. It is a statistical management game of brutal and violent politics, since it is a game that has dictatorship as a theme. It is a humorous but very deep strategy game.
This game isn't bad nor is it very good. Sim Junta takes the core concept of Tropico, where you are an island dictator and you have to take care that revolutions against your regime are destroyed. However, instead of building up an island nation like Sim City or Tropico, you're balancing budgets more so to avoid bankruptcy. However, you have to balance this against tax increases because they contribute to rebellions. Ultimately, you either get rich enough to escape or you lose and try again. It seems the only way to learn the game is to constantly fail and try again, which works with this type of game but it' is frustrating to get wiped out by your own army! All in all, it's simple, it's interesting, and it encourages you to experiment with many builds, budgets, and more. The game was fun because I was a mad dictator who was trying to screw his nation out of millions of dollars but that was it.
