This is a different kind of game where you play the role of an immigration worker who looks at the papers of those who are trying to get into the country.

The game seems simple enough, but the laws of immigration change frequently, so you have to be on your toes when it comes to the people who try to sneak across without the proper paperwork. As a citizen, you have been asked to work as an inspector so that you can help the government try to find those who are getting into the country illegally. Your job involves a lot of sitting behind a window or a desk, which doesn't make for a lot of interesting action in the game unless an arrest needs to be made.

The money that is made while working isn't a lot, but it's something to give to your family so that they can survive. There is a line of people who will show you the paperwork that they have. Your job is to look at all of the components of the papers to see if everything is in order. There is a menu on the side of the screen that shows what you're supposed to be looking for so that you don't let anyone past who shouldn't go through. If you make mistakes, then you get money taken from your paycheck. The sounds aren't that great, and the graphics are possibly even worse. It's really just a game that passes the time and gives you a way to look for details if you're an organized person.
