Vandetta crime is an online browser based game in which you compete with many other players to rise through the ranks of the criminal underworld, gain respect and make cash, and eventually if your good enough, challenge others for the control of illegal opperations right across the world.
The game revolves around several different activities, from making drugs, to employing prostitutes in the red light district, to owning various types of business from amo factory to casino games, and of course committing a lot of crimes (from individual heists to organized crimes to robbing money trucks), not to mention battling against your fellow mobsters.
The principle way the game works is through timers. when carrying out an activity such as doing a crime, you will get a timer telling you how long it will take before you can do that activity again usually in the form of a set of didgits of the hours, minutes and seconds, eg 00:10:30 would mean you could do the activity in ten and a half hours. This means staggering your activities is a good idea, interspersing different things while online to make sure you make the most of your time, for example, alternating performing crimes with playing games at the casino or stealing and racing cars.
Some activities such as organized crimes are group ones, others like engaging in a mass robbery are ones people need to sign up for (in some situations therefore, multiple windows or tabs open are recommended).
Of course, the timers also come into play should one of your operations gowrong and you end up in prison, but don't worry, sinse you'll soon be back out on the streets for more mayhem.
Though Vandetta crime is an intensively competitive game, there is a lot of careful balance to insure that not too many attacks happen. Firstly, "murdering" a player is a rather more serious action in the game, and can therefore be done less often. Secondly, you need to actively track down your target first, sinse they could be in one of several countries. Also, your amount of murders and attacks on other players is very limited, so don't worry about being offed too often.
As well as making money and rising in rank, the game also has a number of challenges and missions. These include dayly quests each day, for example "steal 20 cars", or "play higher/lower six times" as well as more long term missions to teach the game and keep things interesting, such as taking a specific type of car to a specific country or buying several of a given item for the mafia. The game takes place on a global world map with countries from China to Brazil, and activities in those countries ranging from bare knuckle fights in russia to refugee smuggling in China. There are also goals and achievements available as well for when you perform a number of activities, and sinse you can work towards these scimultaniously, not to mention riddles, questions and games run by the admins on a weekly basis so you'll never be short of something to do.
The game, while not precisely designed for blind players (the marksmanship challenge is unfortunately not accessible though it isn't necessary for the rest of the game and only offers minimal awards), is nevertheless run by an administrator who himself uses a screen reader, therefore this is one of the most accessible games you will find. The game's pages are layed out with a number of standard links and headings, indeed on the main page there is a level 1 heading entitled "waiting times" which lets you see how much time you have before you can carry out certain actions again. other level 3 headings are used to find things like crimes to commit, casino games, local places in whatever country your in and other useful information on the page, indeed most activities in the game can be done with just one click. This would make the game ideal for someone learning to use web pages with a screen reader, or indeed someone who just wants something with an easy going interface.
The only slightly problematic part is the signup, sinse that requires a graphical capcha code, however sending a mail to Pelantas at g mail dot com with character information such as desired username and password is all that is required.
The game is entirely free to signup and play, however there is an in game currency known as credits which can be bought through paypal or obtained in other ways such as casino games or just being an active player. Credits can be used to buy Vip membership days which open up certain areas of the game including making a criminal family with other players, training in the gym, and reducing all the waiting times in the game by %30, (though more Vip options may also be included in the future). Credits may also be used to get other bennifits such as more cash, protection from attacks or the like, see the credit exchange office for details.
With a very accessible interface, and a lot to do, Vendetta crime is the perfect stress reliever, and ideal for anyone who wants to go online and play out their thuggish impulses, just remember to avoid the pigs.
