One of My FAVES
I've been playing Tycoon games and empire builders for many years, and I first played this game way back in the day. I've beaten it many times through the years, and yes, I would love it if a new version would come out. But I still love to play it!
This is not a simple game and there is a bit of a learning curve, but once you get it, you are hooked. I've even read reviews where professors have made their students play this game to teach them economics. The curve is rough, just like in real life. Definitely a great game, but this is not a child's game.

My favorite game. It should be lauched as a new version.

Great economic simulator
One of my favourite games. Graphic is not important. The simulation contains a lot of possibilities how to affect the city economic, it is very addictive.

Challenging sim-type strategy game!
This is a sim-type stragegy game. You begin in Pittsburgh, and own a retail store. You purchase more, choosing locations, products, suppliers, and can expand into other areas. You can purchase land, buildings, and more. It's kind of technical in the beginning, learning how the game works, which can be cumbersome, however, it's very challenging and absorbing. For any sim-style game fans, you'll really enjoy this!

Interface is Sometimes Unresponsive
I played this for about 40 minutes.To start, I chose to own grocery stores. What is very odd is that each store only sells four products. The look of the game is very old, I thought. Even the dialogue boxes looked retro. Then, I thought maybe this was on purpose. That was, until I came across an item I could stock in my supermarket - a VHS tape recorder! VHS has been gone for so long! So that, along with the look of the game and the difficulty using it made me decide that this was not for me. The response problem was not occasional. I had to click arrows for drop-down menus over and over for them to respond. The same goes for some of the buttons. I hope they re-do this game using today's technology - it seemed like it could be fun.
