Description of CyberJudas

Glades20 commented : Very rare game. I've come across 2 hard copies since it's release and have bought both of them. I haven't seen it on shelves since.

If given the chance, this game can be very fun. You do have to put alot of time into it to fully understand and utilize the powers given to you in this presidential simulator. Every country in the world at the time is in here, and their stats are implemented based on data from the 1993 CIA World Factbook. Every move you make will have an effect on one country or another. Speak to your advisers frequently, and carefully consider their advice, but don't just do whatever they tell you, or you will effectively make yourself a political puppet and mere figurehead of the state. Let the political power corrupt you, however, and make dangerous choices, you will quickly become impeached.

This game has other modes too. One deals with your staff being full of corrupt politicians who are trying to push their own agendas on you. The other involves a saboteur within your staff who is trying to get you kicked out of office by making things happen around the world and pointing the finger at you. This is one of my all time favourite games.

I want to like this game so bad, but it's just sooooo slow in comparison to Shadow President. It's alright, but a little bit frustrating to get through.

If anyone has any scratching noises while playing the game, try running "CJPATCH" and typing "y" to all overwriting requests. It seems to have done the trick for me.

I have a physical copy of CyberJudas somewhere in one of my buildings I have for storage. I bought it off eBay back in 1996-1998. I was 11-13 at the time and found a Shadow President demo on a school pc at the time and fell in love with the game, since I got into real life politics and foreign policy at the age of 6 in 1992, dont know why I did but I did and still do. CyberJudas is good in some ways but it did leave alot to be desired due to some elements of Shadow President being removed.

This game is a poor imitation of Shadow President. They changed the parts that worked, like the quick single-click advice tab, and kept the parts that didn't work, like the slow-rolling number inputs for budgets and troop counts. This game is full of slow animations and in parts becomes impossible to play if you prefer sound off. Unlike Shadow President, this game has not aged well.

How the hell do you play this thing

I think Shadow President was better, this is too confusing.

Not a DOS genius and don't know the first thing about working in these programs so if it's not straightforward I can't figure out how to get this game to work unfortunately. DOS box starts then crashes.

Frank 2014-07-02 1 point DOS version

OW!!! The game spouts some horrible scratchy noises at various points in the game!!

cmgrafmc 2014-05-18 2 points DOS version

It's worth noting that CyberJudas is a sequel to Shadow President, which is also a fantastic game.

I played the cd rom in 95 (or near). It is a great game. The gameplay is still innovative: many times you have to choose which suggestions to follow.

In the unzipped folder there is a folder called cd containing an iso of the game disk. Mount this iso using Daemon Tools Lite (or whatever you use). Mount your virtual cd drive as d in the dosbox.conf file. Open dosbox, navigate to the cybrjud folder and run cj.exe. It worked for me although I didn't actually play the game, I just went in past the menus to check it. There is a cjpatch.exe file included but I don't know if you need it. The game seemed to work with or without it. There are also a couple of unexplained .bat files thrown in.

I get "the given archive file does not have any executeable file" when I move this into D-fend reloaded.

Emi 2012-08-05 0 point DOS version

How to play this game in Dos Box? I get a "no cd in cd rom" error.
