Summary

Very Innovative Game

The Good

This is a very innovative game, as far as I know, there's been no other games made like it. There's no graphics or sound to speak of, it's simply white text on a black background. Some questions, as you get up to higher levels get very interesting with no easy to see correct answer. Also, you get to make up your own character, which seems to influence your starting options, as far as I could tell, nothing else.

The Bad

It starts off with questions that are way too simple with a correct answer immediately obvious, and the majority of questions on later levels don't really get that much harder. There's only about 4-5 questions per level, with all the questions being exactly the same in the same order every time you play. Fortunately, there's a fairly big amount of jobs you can play, to make it somewhat more replayable. Although, the game itself really is way too short, for the first few time you play it (as you're having the most fun). You're forced to retire at 75 years old (you can start at any age), not once you finish all the possible options, and there really is no exciting ending.

The Bottom Line

Try this game out, it is fairly easy to find now in abandonware and since it's free the price can't be beat! It will hold your interest for at least a few playthroughs and it's very interesting to see a type of game that really hasn't been reproduced today, having been released over 20 years ago!
