Space Force Fleet Commander, the last game developed  by McGhee, was reported on Social Times in January.

It must reward good decision-making and punish poor-decision making.” If this is his philosophy, what’s in store for gamers in Thugz Revenge?

Thugz Revenge, a street gang simulator, is modeled after the gang life of any urban city. Not only does Thugz Revenege require you to think like a gang member, but also act like one. Take your knowledge of the streets to the game by managing the affairs of your gang, forming an army and buying weapons to protect your group. In Thugz Revenge, you are not a follower in the gang, but a high ranking officer: the gang’s leader. It is your job to wage war on other gangs for territory, drugs, money and power. If you think that rival gangs are your only enemies on the streets, think again. The police, who are considered to be the bad guys in your case, are also out to get you. Using your critical thinking to out smart the police and other rival gangs is critical to succeed in Thugz Revenge.

If you’re one to be offended by racially motivated games, Thugz Revenge may not be right for you. As gang leader, you must choose the race for yourself. In Thugz Revenge, McGhee gives each race a unique set of strengths and weaknesses. Make sure to choose your race wisely because each race has their own set of dynamics that change the simulation of the game.

The main obstacle a gamer will face in Thugz Revenge is the constant pressure of rival gangs and the police. While you work on improving your gang, the police are looking to take your gang members to jail, and rival leaders are looking to take you out. You must be able to outsmart these pressures by dealing with them, while becoming the king of the streets.
