their lives in our hands

Nikki and I have moved from Europa 1400 (the medieval simulation game) to a pair of building games.

Beach Life comes from Marco (wink, wink). You get an island and have to create a resort and attract people to it, while fending off sharks,dealing with heatwaves and equipment breakdown and whiny guests. The details are nice, the scenarios are challenging and the Ibiza background muzak is cool.

In Tropico 2, your role is that of a Pirate King, ruler of an island full of despicable 17th century seadogs. You need to stage pirate raids, take prisoners, keep your men knee-deep in rum and so on.

Yes, we're playing God again.
