Tropico 4 Demo Released

Kalypso Media is inviting everyone to show off their inner dictators with the release of a PC demo of Tropico 4. The demo includes four tutorial missions and one campaign mission, which will set players on a quest to become the ultimate leader of a Caribbean island empire.  In Tropico 4, players will assume the role of the newly elected El Presidente who must build his island’s economy from a financial backwater to a world class economic superpower. New features include interactive disasters, additional nations (including Europe, the Middle East and China) to negotiate with and much more.  Grab the demo and get started building your island paradise!

You can download the PC demo from Strategy InformerJoystiq, and gamefront.

Tropico 4 sees you return as El Presidente, the tyrannical (or benevolent) dictator of the island paradise of Tropico. The world is changing and Tropico is moving with the times – geographical powers rise and fall and the world market is dominated by new players with new demands and offers – and you, as El Presidente, face a whole new set of challenges. If you are to triumph over your naysayers you will need to gain as much support from your people as possible. Your decisions will shape the future of your nation, and more importantly, the size of your Swiss bank account.

Tropico 4 features all new missions across new maps and includes exciting and fun new features to keep the action fresh and challenging. You can even elect ministers into power to help get your more controversial decisions passed through the government. But remember to keep your friends close and your enemies closer as everyone has an agenda!

Tropico 4 also brings a new level of social interaction with the addition of Facebook and Twitter integration (PC version only). Post comments on Twitter direct from the game and have updates go out when you complete missions or unlock new achievements. You can even take screenshots of your island and post them on your Tropico 4 Facebook page and compare your interactive Dictator ranking on the online leaderboards. Every little bit helps when you are bringing your island into the 21st Century!

Managing Editor of ManaPool, Peter lives in York, UK and is a great fan and master of turn-based strategy games. If he isn't playing one of those, you'll probably find him in a role-playing game instead. He's definitely not afraid to provide a straight up opinion on any game and has a strong like for indie developers. We all start small, after all.

    I’ve tried to get into Tropico 3, I’ve in fact tried very hard. One of our other editors is a big fan of it, but I just couldn’t get into it. I felt very out of touch with what’s going on and despite loving city building games I ended up being frustrated more than having fun. Pity as it seems like a fun game.
