Had enough of always fighting against the bad guys? In “Evil Genius 2: World Domination” you can instead take on the role of a supervillain with megalomaniac plans to take over the world.

This strategy game has four campaigns, each with its own villain. There’s the narcissistic despot Maximilian, the muscle-bound madman Ivan, the manipulative former spymaster Emma, and the zealous scientist Zalika. Each character has their own path to world domination.

But there’s a long way to go to get there. First you need to set up secret bases, research malicious technologies, and recruit and train henchmen.

Then you have to send these minions out into the world to carry out crimes and collect gold. The nefarious scenarios that are available include kidnapping royals and destroying Alaska.

Of course all these criminal machinations inevitably attract the attention of the forces of justice and agents come knocking on your door to thwart your plans.

What’s new compared to the original game from 2004 is that you now have many different options for getting rid of, fighting, or influencing the agents.

”Evil Genius 2: World Domination” is available for PCs and costs around US$40 (RM165). – dpa
