Interesting, well written review. It made me want to play the game, and that's no mean feat with an 8-bit stock market simulator.

Nicely done.

Hey, thanks for reading and commenting! I didn't wake up planning to write this one, but I got a comment in my inbox for my video that I posted about this some time ago and suddenly I had all these things I wanted to say about the game. It's been ages since I posted a retro review here, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I'm glad that you found it an interesting read. Writing about a stock market game is tough so I tried to do little things throughout the review to liven things up and I spent more time working in the personal angle than I usually would as part of that effort.

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

Nice write-up.

I went for playing Ultima 4 but now that I know this is an interesting game I'll try it out if I ever get the chance.

I did enjoy the personal angle. I don't think it always fits, but it worked well in this case. If it had been a nuts-and-bolts review about how the game works it might have been very dry. Good call.
