Back in August we reported that the police-themed adventure game This Is the Police 2 was getting a mobile port with pre-registration available, and now, it has finally arrived on both Google Play and the App Store. The original This Is the Police combined elements of many different genres including strategy, management, and adventure to great effect, and the sequel was also pretty well-received thanks to its captivating storytelling and strategic gameplay when it launched on Steam last year, so we are pretty excited for this mobile release. Check out its trailer below:

This Is the Police 2 puts you in the shoes of Lilly Reed, the new sheriff of a small border town called Sharpwood. Of late, the town has become increasingly dangerous to live and work in. Even worse, Lilly also has problems earning the respect of her subordinates due to her young age, so you can imagine that maintaining order while trying to prevent corruption from spreading over the entire police department will be no easy task.

You'll have your work cut out for you if you want to maintain order in this increasingly dangerous town

All this makes for the perfect setting for ‘a deep crime story about corruption, hate, and violence’. The majority of your in-game time will be spent managing the officers in your department, answering emergency calls, and making difficult decisions that could have a huge impact on the overall story itself. Your resources will also be severely limited, so planning ahead is essential lest things go terribly wrong.

Of course, due to the nature of the job, sometimes Lilly will need to resort to forceful means in order to arrest the suspects. In gameplay term, that translates to turn-based strategic battles during which you as the player have to position the officers to effectively take out the criminals while minimalizing casualties on your own side.

If you want to take this challenging, narrative-driven adventure game out for a spin, you can head over to Google Play or the App Store to download it right now. Doing so will set you back $7.99 (Rs 570), but on the plus side, that means you’ll get the full experience without any adverts or in-app purchases.
