Tropico Trilogy presents the first three games in the series, along with the add-ons Paradise Island and Absolute Power!


In Tropico, you are the new director of a small but desirable Caribbean island. From scratch, your task is to build a healthy and happy population of local citizens, while at the same time, earning yourself a substantial amount of moolah.

Beginning with just a sandy beach and a small forest, deciding where to begin is a daunting decision. After creating a few citizens, you must provide housing or shelter for them, keep them in good health and control numerous industries, while simultaneously looking after the island’s finances. As your land grows into an independent city, where the people work for themselves and have identities, you should be able to put yourself into a position whereby you can watch the money roll in. By this point you should only be required to make minor management tweaks.

Tropico 2

Tropico 2 takes a somewhat different tack. As an all-powerful Pirate King, players must manage a 17th century band of buccaneers as they strive for supremacy in Tropico. To attract the most frightening of history's sea-faring bad boys, Pirate Kings must have a brave crew and keep well supplied between voyages. The island's resident "yo-ho-ho's" must stay at a feverish pitch in order to keep the King and his buccaneers satisfied with drinking, wenching, gambling, feasting, and the best in pirate accommodation.

Success in Tropico 2 depends on careful management of the pirate population. As dead men earn no loot, the King must keep his pirates well equipped for potentially lethal missions. Sea dogs require muskets, cutlasses, cannons, and the skills to use them when they venture forth to plunder the Spanish Main. Pirates equipped with a parrot on their shoulders and a scary black hat are more likely to strike fear into their victims' hearts.

Tropico 3

In Tropico 3 you're put in the office of either your own custom-created dictator, or one of history's most notorious leaders, including Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, and Eva Peron. From that office, it's your job to run the small island nation, either making it your own little pot of gold or a people's paradise as you see fit.

As well as the usual city-building elements you would expect from a strategy game of this ilk (which include management of tourism, petroleum, mining and agriculture), there's a hearty dose of politics thrown into the mix. While you complete the 15 different scenarios, plugging away at the not-insubstantial job of managing a metropolis, you'll need to do things like deal with the US and Russia, weigh up competing bribes from different multi-national corporations and buying off insurgent kidnappers who are hurting the tourism business.

It's not just a matter of spreadsheets and menus, either. You'll be able to add a personal touch, delivering speeches from your balcony to rouse the population and walk about the island to make your presence known.
