Millionaire Tycoon is a Monopoly style board game where players battle against each other in costly property development in order to rise up and become the new Donald Trump; or Scrooge McDuck. You must purchase as much property to build your assets and bankrupt your opponents in the process.

To play the game, you’ll have to roll a dice to move around the game board and buy up property you land on. Players will use the on screen prompts to make choices and all cash transactions between players are automatic. Along with buying property and collecting different bonuses as they appear, you’ll also have the option to buy items that will help you dramatically; like the lawyer who can seize another player’s property and give it to you.

The games cartoony visuals are well done but it would have been nice to see more game avatars to choose from. The sound is good but players are free to use their iPod during gameplay instead. The game features 2 game modes - a single player campaign or a challenge mode where players can set up a local pass and play multiplayer game.

Millionaire tycoon is a decent substitute for Monopoly but doesn’t quite match up or exceed its gameplay. The game is easy to control and can be fun with more than one player but the unforgiving AI difficulty and lack of movement control will leave you with some incredibly frustrating moments. If you’re a fan of other mogul games and would like a challenge or some variation, then Millionaire Tycoon might be worth a look at.
