High Seas Trader

Moby ID: 4256
DOS Specs


A follow-up to Impressions' earlier game Merchant Colony, High Seas Trader puts you in the shoes of a young impoverished nobleman who must take to the high seas (where else?) in order to regain fame and fortune.

You'll trade in a variety of goods, deal with banks and merchants, acquire property, and outfit your ship with guns, equipment, and crew. Sailing is done from a first person perspective behind the ship's wheel. The seas are, of course, never safe; pesky pirates will attempt to intercept you and relieve you of your worldly possessions.
