Mob Rule Platinum w/ Electronic Version of Brady Strategy Guide

It's 1930's America and organized crime is at it's apex. You're the new kid on the block and are looking for some action and a piece of the pie. Play your cards right and you'll move up the ladder of success. Screw up and you'll be taking a dive underwater with some cement boots as company! Welcome to the evil empire of Mob Rule.

You'll begin your quest for an empire in a soup kitchen, where you can get to training workers and raising families. You'll slowly start to form the circle of power that will bring you to the top. Buildings, owned by you, will start popping up all over the place. Strip clubs, porn shops, breweries, cement factories and stores. Each of these buildings will also require a tenant to run it and you have a choice of ten, unique people to do the job. Soon your workers will have to become bigger than just handymen though. Gangsters, repairmen, and "thugs" are all needed to fulfill the grand dream that you envision. It'll be a block-by-block process of building up reserves and setting the foundation for what you want to achieve.

Although, don't think it will be all wine and roses for long! You'll have to deal with problems and "undesirables" that will cause major shakedowns in your empire. Angry tenants, bar ghosts, hoodlums, rival gangs, and the police are just some of the potential distractions that could slow your progress. You'll also have to grease the right palms and bribe the police when necessary, as having friends in high places can be a key to victory.

Soon enough, you'll have to make your presence known and make a few "hits" on certain people that aren't playing your game. You have to show that your group of "thugs" and gangsters isn't going to be trifled with in any way. Bombings, gang attacks, and setting fires are just some of the evil tactics you can use to stop the opposition from gaining any headway.

Some cities and territories will be easier to conquer than others. You will have to realize this fact as you slowly move up in the ranks of evil empires. While you may start out in the comatose Hickstown and enjoy an easy ride, you'll soon be competing with the big boys in Dead Dog's Ditch or the bright lights of Capital City. Those places are where the real action and challenge await you. Only with the right resources, connections and street smarts will you succeed in this dog-eat-dog underworld!

For Windows (32-bit Systems) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']

WHAT YOU GET:

This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.

IMAGES:

All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.

COMPATIBILITY:

Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.

PLATFORM:

Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.

MEDIA FORMAT:

Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A SMOOTH PURCHASE:

  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.


  • SHIPPING:

    We typically ship all items out within 1-2 business days after payment is received. In regards to the stated shipping and handling, remember that these costs include more than just postage.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product. If you are, then international buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.
