As manager of one of six privileged import stores, users must match wits against their competitors in a race to build a commercial empire. In their quest for wealth, players have to set prices for goofy commodities (“lumber fish,” “fuzzy tubs,” “nose radios”), budget money for advertising, invest in bonds, spend money to build larger stores, and explore the islands surrounding Zapinalia in search of treasure and magical items. The simulation can be played at any of six levels of difficulty, while a handy tutorial feature allows beginners to gradually increase complexity as they play.
“For its challenging gameplay, witty humor, elegant tutorial, sound economics, and endless replayability, Zapitalism Deluxe is well worth the cost.”
—CNET’s Game Cen
“A delightfully silly economics sim that’s easy to learn, fun to play, and hard to beat… wonderful off-the-wall fun.”
— PC Games Magazine
“Zapitalism’s three dimensional graphic images have stunning visual power… combinations of luminescent, neon-bright colors that virtually light up the cathode ray tube like no other graphics I have seen.”
—The Computer Show
