Super Disk Bonus

Entrepreneur Jungle

Pro-Quality Stock Market Simulation


Even if you got clobbered in last autumn's stock market plunge, you can still keep your trading skills in practice with a mere $5.95 investment for the March 1988 Antic Disk.

Entrepreneur Jungle, this month's Super Disk Bonus, is a professional-quality stock market simulation that makes it financially risk-free to try out the role of a high-stakes speculator in varied investment ventures. Programmer William Austin's game has been thoroughly play-tested by business students at Eastern Michigan University. This vast (256 sectors!) BASIC program works on Atari 8-bit computers with at least 48K memory and a disk drive.

Your goal in Entrepreneur Jungle is to achieve a personal net worth of a billion dollars before enforced retirement. Your Atari is your broker and at first you only have enough money to buy shares in relatively small firms. However, as your net worth, skills and political influence grow, you'll have many more options.

The classic economic strategy of "buy low, sell high" takes you only part-way along the route to success. To achieve truly great wealth, aggressive tactics are required. If you become recognized as a political benefactor, you'll be in the pipeline for Insiders' Tips and the Rumor Mill. You'll also be offered bribes from firms seeking your support. It might even be possible to tamper with justice. For example, your Grand Jury files might vanish.

Your March 1988 Antic Disk--featuring Entrepreneur as well as every program in this issue--will be shipped to you within 24 hours after receiving your order. Just phone Toll-Free to the Antic Disk Desk at (800) 234-7001. The monthly disk is only $5.95 (plus $2 for shipping and handling) on your Visa or MasterCard. Or mail a $5.95 cheek (plus $2 shipping and handling) to Antic Disk Desk, 544 Second Street, San Francisco, CA 94107.

Programmers: Antic wants to see your most ambitious programs, even those too large or complex for printing as a type-in listing. High-quality programs in any language that has a runtime version are now eligible for consideration as a Super Disk Bonus.

Now only $5.95--Antic Monthly Disk!
