Game4u's 12 Days of Christmas sale is in full swing, and Tropico 3 is the game up for grabs at a discount today. The city-building parody of the Cold War is available at a price of Rs 49, which is a 50 percent discount on its original price of Rs 99. Today is the fourth day of the sale.

In Tropico 3, you play as 'El Presidente' of an island somewhere in the Carribbean. The Cold War is in full swing and you have to manage, and hopefully, develop the island. This can be done through regular means, or if you're really evil, through a dictatorship. You can also ally yourself with either the capitalists in the West, or the communists in the East. This is a difficult decision, as allying with one or the other blocks out the options for laws you can pass. Tropico 3 is known for its tongue-in-cheek humour and parody of the otherwise serious Cold War.

The game up for grabs yesterday was EA's strategy game, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3. The Red Alert series is an alternate take on the world, where Einstein was killed before he could create nukes for the Allied forces, leading Russia to become the dominant force in the world. This also leads to the rise of a third power—Japan. The game takes a look at war through a humour-filled lens, where you can have the jingoistic Allied forces fighting Russian bears and Japanese mecha and magical girls.
