OverviewOverview

Evil Genius 2 is a tongue-in-cheek strategy game where you play the evil villain. You must build a detailed, functional lair from where you can take control of the world. Similar to Sim City and 2 Point Hospital, you use your resources wisely as you mark out rooms, train your minion workforce and create new specialists.

The action is controlled from above by clicking to interact with your base and workforce. Via menus you can select new technology to build, or send your forces off to establish corrupt projects in different parts of the world. All the time you need to be on your guard against enemy agents investigating or coming to assassinate you.

Although this focuses on violence and corruption it's all done in a comical style. For example, you can send enemy do-gooders spinning away with a Pinball Bumper, or put the chomp on them with the Venus Spy-Trap. Then there are your evil schemes: selling the British Royal Family, Kidnaping the Governor of Maine, or literally making Baked Alaska.
