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

*PRESS SPACE TO LOCK YOUR CAMERA VIEW!*

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.

*KNOWN ISSUES*

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.

This is a good game, but...

There were a few things holding me back from calling this a perfect game. First and foremost, there was a tangible lack of humor, something that made the Mastermind series popular. There are some good moments to be had during the tutorial and at the end, but overall, it was lacked humor.

Second, once you started to get enough income per whatever the game measures it in, it gets pretty boring. You can buy all of the weapons, the best henchmen/patsies, all the businesses, and best turrets. You can get all of the bluffs, and a seemingly unlimited supply of minions. At that point, when you play, it's just to see the end. The only part that had any point to it once I started to get $2,000 per somethings was the missions. They were cured by patsies mostly, although a failed mission didn't hurt that much, since I could just spend as much money as I wanted on new minions.

Finally, the camera. I know I could lock it, but it still is bothersome, especially when my minions are at the perimeter shooting at something I can't see, whether or not I lock it. Also, it was very far out (but clearly not far enough to show the entire field), so there was very little detail to things. Even the different bases didn't have much variation to them.

I'd still recommend that any fan of either Mastermind or RTS games, since it has very deep gameplay with things that can you might have missed before. But once you get halfway through, the only reason to play is if you want to finish the story or want to see the end.

I'm gonna go f**k off to space now!

Very, very fun game.

Good animation, every1 had voices, easy controls, innovative, funny, probly one of the best endings ever :D, and good game all round.

So y did i rate u an 8?

Reasons: TOO EASY and NO REPLAYBILITY...and too weird at some parts. Once you get halfway through nothing can kill you. And once uve conquered one place, uve conquered them all, making replayability a bust cause its too easy to defend and you HAVE to go up the tech tree to win (only way of winning). and the cutscenes when getting technology or robbin somewhere, while nice, werent as funny as they couldve been.

Suggestions:

Make it Harder
Make different units (would be awesome to have tanks)
Different ways to win other than just defending and going up techtree (mainly: CONQUER)

Other than that it killed about 30 minutes. Looking forward to more from u.

But it wound up being a bit easy. I wasn't challenged at all.
