The Benjamins is a lewd clicker game about managing a squad of ladies and raking in them benjamins.

Gameplay
Manage your income and your lady-workforce in real time via some of the most furious clicking I've ever done. If your money goes under negative one-hundred, it's game-over. Each month, you have to generate a minimum of 750 (plus 250 per lady) money to pay rent. In addition, each lady also has an hourly rate, which increases as they become qualified for higher-paying jobs. Each job requires one or more prerequisites, such as special training or well being. As you gain more and more funding, you can employ more ladies and take advantage of pricier services. You can adjust the speed of the game to suit your clicking-speed — once I reached a party of seven, at five-times speed it was impossible for me to keep up with every one of my ladies.

Story
There is no story (and I’m not making one up).

Visuals
The titlescreen is too dark and the user-interface failed to impress. From "Options", you can adjust audio, difficulty and display preferences. You can review unlocked CGs from the "Scrapbook". The in-game visuals are all over the place. The world map is rendered with cartoony models, and the characters are rendered with more realistic models and textures. The characters are really hit or miss (and mostly miss). Each character appeared to be a different style, which was incredibly jarring. If the game only focused on Candy, the tutorial girl, the lewd content might have been worth something.

- The Goods-
There are a good selection of static (and a few animated) CGs that are unlocked simply by playing the game. Each CG is tied to a lady and an action, such as a date or a job. Most of the CGs show the cast in non-lewd situations, though a few jobs (such as the "Stripper" job) may offer nudity. The models are. . . not that great. The animations are choppy, and the images are way too dark, and inconsistently rendered. I was not impressed by the gallery.

Verdict
I really can't recommend this game, but the price is about right. The gameplay is engaging, but it's not fun. You won't be spending much, if any of the game actually enjoying the lewd content. I spent my entire playthrough micro-managing a series of colored bars, and that pretty much sums up the whole game — watch bars go down and try to figure out (mostly in vain) how to play the game correctly. I had to learn what did what (and how much everything costs) through trial-and-error. For your efforts, the lewd content is hardly worth the stress. If you want to make some benjamins, you can start with not buying this game.
