Aspects like political and economic difficulty can also be customized to make the game easier or more difficult. The player is able to issue a number of governmental edicts, some of which require funding or the availability of particular buildings. Edicts are used to achieve various game effects, from appeasing one of the superpowers by openly praising them, to instating martial law, to giving a tax break to the populace. The game calculates a score for the player at the end of the game, based on a variety of factors, including the happiness of the island's citizens, the health of the island's economy, how much money the player has set aside for his own retirement in a Swiss bank account, and the level of difficulty chosen at the start of the game.

  • Sounds of Tropico

    The only thing about Tropico is, that there are no sound availible to download. Just a sound bite like "El Presidente, you've got a message" or "El Presidente, We have a major problem". How great would that be to have on your mobile phone? While playing one of the most things I loved was the voice calling "El Presidente, the people are flourishing" and so on.....
