Welcome to New York City, the traditional landing port for foreigners eager to build their own American dream. It is Mark Lilly's job, as an employee at the Department of Integration, to help these newcomers out with jobs and make sure they do not get deported because of some technicality, such as losing their immigration papers or eating gray matter at the Municipal Brain Depository.
Yes, it's going to be one of those games. Use your mouse to interact with objects on the screen, combining items in your inventory to help you succeed in important tasks... like freeing yourself from handcuffs.
Strange is a fitting place to start describing Citizen Ugly. After helping him escape from his bedroom bondage, you discover that the ten cases Mark needs to check up on are not of the garden variety immigration stuff (though his roommate's choice of take-out food - and for that matter his Luciferian girlfriend - should have been clues). Then again, in this city it is very normal to see a zombie next to the convenience store.
Mark's cases cover the likes of double-headed creatures, a giant chicken, two characters with a fish head and a fish hook for their respective heads, not to mention a Croatian man. Mark has to check up on them, all of whom have some kind of problem that could lead to their expulsion from the country.
