If you've ever fantasized about what it was like to be a blatantly unethical defense lawyer, Devil's Attorney may be the game for you.
Devil's Attorney recently launched on Google Play, and puts players in the shoes of criminal defense attorney Max McMann, reports Android Central.
In the game, McMann can pick up a variety of cases like defending a restaurant that sells hot dogs of questionable origin and male strippers impersonating police officers.
Once you pick a case, you get to go to court and defend the case just as if you were a real lawyer, sort of.
On each turn, you have the ability to spend certain action points on a variety of abilities. Each action can reduce the credibility of the prosecutor's case. Just like in real life, if you spend your resources wrong, you could open yourself up for attack. After spending your action points, the prosecutor has his chance to go after your case with whatever you haven't discredited.
As in real life, the most rewarding aspect of Devil's Attorney is getting paid. If you win a case, you get paid. And with that money, you can spend it on important things like gaudy furniture for your apartment.
More importantly, with each successful case, you can also increase lawyerly rankings which provide new and unique skills in the courtroom, reports Android Central.
The public perception of a lawyer may be a lot like Max McMann from Devil's Attorney. You know, that of a sleazy criminal defense attorney with a lot of gold chains and animal-print furniture.
But the reality is that most lawyers are pretty buttoned-up and spend more time staring at a computer screen then talking to criminal defendants. For only $2.99, Devil's Attorney gives real attorneys and wannabe attorneys an opportunity to experience life on the dark side.
