Kalypso Media and Feral Interactive are thrilled to announce that Tropico, the strategic city builder and humorous dictator sim, will be released on iPad later this year. Based on the acclaimed series originally published by Kalypso Media, Tropico for iOS has been redesigned and developed for mobile by Feral and will arrive on iPad as a premium game with no in-app purchases.
As El Presidente, leader of the resource-rich Caribbean island nation of Tropico, players will build their island’s infrastructure and manage its economy while balancing the demands of its numerous political factions. By directing every aspect of island life, players can transform Tropico into an industrial metropolis, a vacation paradise, a police state, or all three!
Fully tailored to and optimised for tablet, Tropico features intuitive touch controls and an easy-to-navigate user interface that make it smooth and simple for players to issue edicts, erect monuments, develop their island, and admire their sun-drenched handiwork.
“With its delightful mix of strategy and tongue-in-cheek humour, the Tropico series has long been a favourite of desktop and console gamers alike,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “Re-imagining its gameplay for mobile has been great fun; we’re excited by the results, and are delighted to be bringing it to iPad.”
“We are thrilled to be working with Feral Interactive to further expand the Tropico IP to iPad gamers across the globe,” said Marcus Behrens, Publishing Director for Mobile at Kalypso Media. “Tropico has captured the hearts and imagination of millions of gamers during its 17 year history and this transition to tablet takes the brand on a whole new and exciting journey.”
