At Android Police we strive to bring you the best news related to Android, but we rarely bring you news from the Android police. Today we do it. The popular independent game “This Is the Police” is coming to Android, and you can sign up to receive a launch notification right now.
This is the Police puts you in the shoes of police chief Jack Boyd as he heads for an early (and involuntary) retreat. The city of Freeburg is riddled with crime and corruption, which Boyd can take advantage of to get the money he needs to finance his golden years. Immerse yourself too much with the mafia or annoy the corrupt mayor, and you may not even reach retirement. All this is developed as a real-time management experience with elements guided by history as you investigate crimes and cut deals. That’s the kind of thing that should translate well on a touch screen.
The game was initially launched on a desktop computer in 2016 before hitting the game consoles in 2017 and 2018. Reviews were mixed at the launch, but This Is the Police currently has a very positive rating on Steam. The Play Store listing is live with a pre-registration option. The game costs $ 15 on Steam, but the Android version will probably go down.
