Jones in the Fast Lane. (computer game) (evaluation)
by Eddie Huffman

Somewhere between a conventional board game and a computer adventure game lies Jones in the Fast Lane, a tricky trip through real life. After setting personal goals for such essentials as income and happiness, you venture out into Jone's mean streets. You'll parlay education and experience into better jobs, but beware spoiled groceries, unexpected doctor bills, and that inescapable rent payment. While essentially a board game played on a computer, Jones is a compelling diversion enhanced by appealing graphics and clever asides.
