Overall, a complex and enjoyable game which is slick and attractive. Even at the price it's a good value.
Info (Sep, 1984)
Seven cities of gold is an adventure game of discovering the new world in the late 1400's. The monarchy will outfit you for your first voyage, but you have to bring back some gold to keep returning to the new world for further exploration and conquest. Carefully balance your resources between the number of ships, men, supplies, and valuables to trade or give to the natives. Be sure not to lose your bearing once you get out of sight of the ship— there are no road maps! You'll like this adventure if you like exploring and you can negotiate with the unpredictable natives.
A classic rendition of the Exploration and Conquest of the New World. Graphics on the 16-bit machines are relatively poor (considering the capabilities of the machines), but on the earlier releases, the game remains a classic.
Obwohl SEVEN CITIES OF GOLD bereits drei Jahre auf dem Buckel hat, ist es dennoch als „up to date“ anzusehen. Denn im Vergleich zu ähnlichen Adventure-Strategie-Spielen „neuen Datums“ schneidet es grafisch, spielerisch und „motivationsmäßig“ nicht schlechter ab. Es ist schwierig, für dieses Spiel eine geeignete Schublade zu finden, da es mehrere Elemente enthält die den Spielablauf bestimmen. Wer die „Sieben Städte“ noch nicht besitzt sollte sich das Ding auf jeden Fall einmal ansehen. Und: Bei wem es schon in der hintersten Ecke des Software-Regals verschwunden ist, der sollte es schnell noch einmal hervorholen und sich (vielleicht noch etwas genauer?) damit beschäftigen. Es bietet viele Stunden der spannenden Abenteuerei.
