MASTERMIND: WORLD CONQUEROR - Manage your minions, defend your base, and conquer this puny planet ONCE AND FOR ALL!


WARNING: For assistance in figuring out what to do next, click the Help button for options at the top of the game screen, or click the Question Mark buttons in each of your rooms for further explanation.

This is the first game I have ever developed from scratch and programmed myself on top of all game visuals, so I do truly hope you enjoy my six months of efforts in bringing you this game. It wouldn't have been the same without the unrivaled vocal talents of TomaMoto, as well as Andy Dennis, Egoraptor, Suzy (Egoraptor's better half), Tom Fulp, Rinachan, Afro-Ninja, Luis Prieto, Toonimated, and of course myself as the Mastermind ;) Who could forget that?

So go conquer the world already! GOOD LUCK, YOU'LL NEED IT.



Infinite Attack Bug - Your base continues to flash "Under Attack" even though you've survived all attacking enemies. This prevents your game from saving and your units from healing. Currently, the only way to fix is to return to the menu and Continue from your previous checkpoint, or Evacuate your base for another (which, unfortunately, will lose the base you are evacuating, but at least your progress will be saved).

Turret No-Target Bug - A targetting glitch causes turrets to target enemies they cannot see, preventing them from attacking enemies that come close to them. This glitch resolves itself after you've cleared the checkpoint.

Tutorial Freeze - Should be fixed now. If not, starting a New Game will reset the tutorial for you.

amazing sounds and graphics!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Awesome game, extremely detailed,

It held my interest throughout, but it got a little boring after a while. The game had lots of content, both technical and aesthetic. I got had many options to choose from (ie henchmen, base locations, etc), but some of the options had slightly redundant effects like kill, kidnap.

SPOILER?: The ending was hilarious and abrupt, "I owe you one" "WOW, what an Ahole." looks like I didn't think it through.
The ending minigame was also pretty funny. "No cheese ______, NOOOOOO!!!!'

I had this whole ultimatum system in place when I planned this game, where it wasn't so much about killing/kidnapping/blowing up a target as it was THREATENING to do so, allowing players to cash in on their plots or to carry them out if the world leaders refused to cooperate. One of the things that got dropped, though I did adamantly refuse to drop the kill/kidnap missions from the game.

Awesome game.

One of the best- possibly THE best - game on NG.

WAAAY too easy though. With a games name being "MASTERMIND" I would have expected it to be at least a bit challenging :S

The-Swain responds:

Hard to truly balance a game that depends on so many different kinds of playstyles. If it helps, think of this as a simulation rather than a game ;) Just something to sit back and toy with.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Its a good game

though i encounter some few problems, yeah i the the infinite attack bug, Also my #2 henchman keep hitting nothing which is the peewee man i think, and minions love to crowds around him, when i clicked the base to return them, my #2 guy still hitting nothing and my minions return to crowd him, also some of my turrets which you know won't respond to enemies.

overall it is a well made game!

Haha, some henchmen have a leadership skill which makes all minions target their target even if they cannot see the enemy, making them all gang up and become more efficient. They do tend to swarm though.

The Gaelic castle is a good choice for having more minions to work with. Also, go for the AI science, which frees up your control/financial rooms.
