Examine the paperwork of immigrants trying to get into the country.

This is a game that puts you in charge of making sure that all immigration documents are completed correctly. You will notice that there are various characters trying to cross the border, and if you don't pay attention, they might make it. If this happens, you could be reprimanded about your work.

The laws related to immigration change with each level, so you have to keep track of what to look for so that you can properly complete the paperwork required. The pay you earn isn't a lot, and you're working in a Soviet-style setting. Mistakes could mean that you lose money or your job if you make too many. People will cross the border at faster rates of speed as you advance in the game. They will also try a few sneaky tactics that will mean multi-tasking in order to get your job completed.

One of the things that you have to keep in mind with the game is that you have to make money to support your family. If you lose money, then it means that you can't provide food or shelter for your family, and they will likely have something to say about the issue. The game is easy to navigate with controls that you can get used to after playing the game for a short time. It looks like a game from the 1980s with regards to images and pixelation, but it's fun to play if you're looking for something that requires you to use your mind.
