Atari, Apple Old West Game
Strategic Simulations, Inc., has created Rails West, a simulation of the Western railroad development of the late 1800s, for Apple and Atari computer systems.
Up to eight players may participate, choosing the scenario and level of play, among other options. Menus guide each player through such business decisions as buying and selling stocks and bonds, applying for loans, and floating securities. Economic conditions ranging from boom times to panics are important factors throughout the game.
Rails West is available on disk for $39.95.
