We first heard that Cinemaware's classic adventure game The King of Chicago was heading to mobile devices way back in August of 2012, but hadn't heard much news on its progress since then. Today, Cinemaware announced that The King of Chicago is finally ready to roll, and should be arriving on iOS and Android devices at some point this month. Set in the 1930s, The King of Chicago has you starting out as a lowly criminal building up your empire by partaking in all sorts of cool, old-timey gangster activities like drive-bys, briberies, illegal gambling, assassinations and more.

If you can build up your gang and control all of the mob activity in Chicago by a certain date, then you'll be able to join the illustrious New York crime syndicate, a dream come true for any 1930s era aspiring gangster. No pricing was announced as of yet, but The King of Chicago should be hitting mobile devices "within February" so we'll keep an eye out for it and let you know when it's available.

    What kind of gameplay will the game feature? Sorry not familiar with the original.

    The trailer looks stupid

    It's one of the first cinemaware games that came out - usually just what we'd now class as mini games wrapped around an adventure game. If they announce it came from the desert, I will probably let out a little bit of wee, as it's absolutely brilliant...

    • Adams Immersive

      Yes, ICFTD 1 and 2 would be my top Cinemaware choices! I wouldn't say no to Sinbad and the Throne of the Falcon either. (What an odd game that was.) Now, The Kristal is a game I never need to see again.

      Get ready to wee. It will be coming soon...

      That read weird. "If they announce it came from the desert..." to the person above who doesn't even know KOC, makes it sound like the programmers worked in an isolated desert oasis to bring us this game! 😉

    I will give up a nut for a Police Quest iOS.

  • Bloodangel

    I loved this and rocket ranger back in the day... Also wings and defender of the crown.

    Wonder what ever happened to the wings coming to iOS a couple years ago? 🙁

  • Maglor

    If it will out on Feb 20th, I'll get this!!!

  • Spudboy

    Insta-buy. Of course because I'm old.
