DOS - 1993
Also available on: Amiga
Description of Detroit
Detroit is a logical follow-up of Impressions' excellent airline industry sim Air Bucks.
This time, the year is 1908, and you are the President of an upstart car company. You will build and design cutting-edge automobiles, take care of finances and promote your products with marketing campaigns. Vintage car lovers will really enjoy the game, as it includes many classic car designs, all of which you can modify to your heart's content. As time goes by, new technologies will become available, and the industry will evolve with faster and safer cars. Competition, of course, will become tougher as your competitors catch up to your technological advantages. You must then think globally -- open new factories overseas, and think of how to segment your market with different car models that do not cannibalize each other's sales. Like Airbucks, Detroit emphasizes fun and playability over historical realisms, although there is enough historical accuracy in the game to satisfy the most demanding of gamers. The computer opponent is also much stronger than Air Bucks, making it a good challenge for all armchair businessmen. Two thumbs up! Also check out Max Design's more sophisticated but less-known Motor City.

Actually, there was a very good remake of this called 'car tycoon' that I ran quite easily on my old XP system for the longest time. too bad I lost the archive :(
