It is similar to its desktop counterpart as it involves seizing power over the Caribbean island country of Tropico to rule as El Presidente. Players will also have to manage the development of the island, maintain relations between seven of the island's political factions and the world. It appears to be more or less identical to the original and may retain all its features. Fully tailored to and optimised for mobile, Tropico will feature intuitive touch controls and an easy-to-navigate user interface that make it smooth and simple for players to issue edicts, erect monuments, develop their island, and admire their sun-drenched handiwork. The game is, however, a bit demanding and Feral claims that it is best enjoyed on the following smartphones.

Tropico still should run on devices that are not on the list (and running Android Oreo or later), considering that it is missing a lot of big names. Head over to the Play Store listing and pre-register if you're a fan of the franchise.
