This is truly an ultimate memory trip!

I remembered playing this on the C64. It is odd that, despite a multiplayer feature even in the original version, I played only the single-player game. For its time, the "simulation" aspect was surprisingly deep (remember that SimCity came out some 6 years later).

I also remembered finding the game to be quite difficult (for its time). Lots of random events that will ruin whatever plan you tried to cook up to level up your mules.

God no. Used to get friends round for an all nighter on the C64. This is the granddaddy of them all. So excited to finally get my hands on it. It was difficult as the random events could bugger up everything in a heartbeat. Also the trading stock section was difficult. We used to all look at each other as the trading started. Almost Poker Face stuff. Instabuy. Actually bought it already but we are going out in the car so will have to wait to play it. Can hear the intro music in my head.

It isn't showing up on my App Store, is this a soft launch? Odd that a title with such potential for hype would release outside of the 'Wednesday night' showcase.

I'm sure you guys know the spotty history of this as a game that people have tried to remake many times, a lot of drama surrounding the original Dev (who went from Dan to Danielle, and has since passed on) and companies wanting to squeeze this game for a penny vs. a community wishing to preserve history.

The game needs to be IDENTICAL to the original, I mean obviously a graphics overhaul is fine as long as they include perfectly faithful retro fallback. It goes without saying that if the opening music is so much as one wavelength away from the original that I will personally lead the mob carrying torches and pitchforks.
