Next on my list of games that you may have missed,
This happens to be another one of my favorite time wasters. You start out by choosing the equivalent of a James Bond villain. From that point you start to build your evil lair, which will be your launching point on ruling the world.
The gameplay is fairly simple, start building your base with a few tile sets that you have available at the beginning. Such as a control room, and a barracks for your men. From there you start doing missions, earning money and unlocks. Before you know it, you are building death rays, torturing people for intel, and setting traps for all the unlikely intruders who wish to see your demise.
On the surface it appears to be no more than a Sims game, but I would have to disagree. There is a great deal of depth under the hood. As you progress through the game you will be completing acts of infamy, kidnaping, and all sorts of shady business. Which in turn will raise your notoriety, and will bring with it constant attack to your base. You have to balance men to send out on the field while maintaining strong defenses.
It's a bargain price on steam and a fantastic single player game.
