Story

The communist state of Arstotzka has just ended a 6-year war with neighboring Kolechia and reclaimed its rightful half of the border town, Grestin.

Your job as immigration inspector is to control the flow of people entering the Arstotzkan side of Grestin from Kolechia. Among the throngs of immigrants and visitors looking for work are hidden smugglers, spies, and terrorists.

Using only the documents provided by travelers and the Ministry of Admission's primitive inspect, search, and fingerprint systems you must decide who can enter Arstotzka and who will be turned away or arrested.

I've always heard crazy good things about this game, but I don't know anything about it. I hope it is half as good as everyone seems to find it.

I'll probably not be able to resist more than a few hours before buying it. Don't really know what it is, but those awards are impressive. What an expensive week!

Plays absolutely gloriously (teehee) on iPad. I understand now why it wouldn't work on iPhone unless a complete overhaul to the UI is done. Still hopeful that Maybe one day Lucas will find a way to make it work on phones.
