There are two levels that your city must survive. There is a time span of 30 years. You need to make decisions on your towns energy availability. When you are finished powering up your city for level one, the years will pass with events happening. The events are displayed with the outcome of the GAME IMPACTS. Before Level 2, you make more energy availability decisions for your town. When you have completely powered up your city, the years willpass with more events happening. At the end of the game, you are asked to describe who you are and what organization you are with. Engerville will then compare your end score with other similiar players.
There are three impacts that need to be watched so you can maximize your score.
