DOS - 1990
Description of Transworld (de)
In 1990, Starbyte Software publishes Transworld (de) (also known as Trans World), a managerial game for the DOS system. Offering simulation genre, it is now an abandonware.
A game from Germany, from Starbyte, from 1990. What could it be? Yes! You're right, another management simulation... of course *yawn* - although puzzle game could have been another good option to think of. This time in Transworld, you are put into the position to manage a forwarding business [Zumindest der Babbelfisch erzไhlt mir, dass das Spedition auf English heisst]. Actually, quite nice, well laid out and one of the more entertaining games of its genre, although the scope is quite limiting and long-term playability is much lower than classics of the genre (e.g. Transport Tycoon). Note: Game and manual are in German.

Played the game in its day. This download contains both the graphical interface version and the 'mono' version, which is a text based version. My friend and I spent an entire summer in hot-seat games (literally, because it was a hot summer) and with the text-only version, to cut-down on the long loading times. We'd fantasize about driving those big rigs ourselves, all across Europe. If I recall, picking up cars in Moscow and bringing them back was the most profitable gambit. Anyway, I have fond memories of the game, rekindled recently by playing Euro Truck Simulator 2. I guess you'd have to have been there, in the early nineties, to appreciate this game. Everyone else take a look at ETS2 instead. Happy gaming!
