Return to Taipan (thing)
This game now exists for the [Palm OS]. Still highly addictive, though it still suffers from the problem whereby you might face heaps of enemy ships and not have a button that says "attack until they die, god-****-it!" together with a "turbo" button for those long combat sequences.
Memories of the original [Apple II] game rests far back in the recesses of my [temporal lobe] but as I recall, the Palm game had [general] as the last [commodity] you could trade and also fixed the bug where you could pay the [Elder brother Wu] (the [moneylender]) more than you owed him and thereby collect a ridiculous amount of [compound interest].
