Description of Criminal City

This very rare game was submitted by Ernst:

I recently bought a copy of a game that I played when i was a child. I couldn't find any download version or even further information about game. Now that i have i copy i would like to provide it to you in order for it to become available to a greater audience (I can't even find another copy to buy since i bought the last one on amazon). I think the original release date was in 1993 and I don't think that any publisher would care (the one listed on the CD box seems to be out of business(their website is supposed to be but it seems totally gone. You can actually lookup an old version on the wayback machine but Criminal City is not listed)).

The game is an old DOS game where you play a criminal and have to become a criminal mastermind. It's turn based and you can play with up to 4 players. It's a a simple game but quite fun if played together with friends.

From the readme:

Criminal City is a game for up to four players. In contrast to many other games you don't fight against crimes, but you try to commit as many of them as possible. For example you can play pickpocket, raid supermarkets and hotels, steal cars, kidnap children, raid banks, attack mail trains, and so on. Because you are in a big town you have many different possibilities for this. When you have a high standing already you re also able to sign on gangsters that join your gang. This gangsters then can be trained or equipped with weapons (for example with pistols or machine guns).

Your aim is to seize the power in the underworld. But the way there is very dangerous, particularly since the other players try exactly the same. But also the police are hard on your heels.

Thank you! How nice!
I used to play this as a kid. I think I kept the CD somewhere in the depth of my cellar.

Wow, I used to play this game but I cannot find the CD anymore. This gem is nowhere to be found in the Internet but it's so much fun. Thank you for the upload!
