Description of Big Business
A decent, humorous business game, Big Business by DigiTek acquired a small following when it was released for the Amiga, although the game's flaws economics model and repetitive gameplay seriously hamper replay value. As CEO of a company, you will make business decisions to stay ahead of the competitors and increase shareholder value. The game's highlight is the cartoony feel, good user interface, and a likeable (although vastly simplified) stock market model that is surprisingly robust, even though it doesn't seem to be affected by economic trends. Product pricing model is also very simplistic-- I find it very easy to corner an opponent and win in price wars, as the computer player doesn't really know when to stop.
Overall, an okay business sim that would have been much better if DigiTek had made the economic model more realistic.

Women have curves and wear thongs. Nothing to feel guilty about, guys. Don't let ugly people convince you that beauty is evil.

For some reason none of the Amiga versions of this game will run on my emulator. I might try the dos version. Any way dunno if this game worth the play but its one the old games i never beat.

It was 1990. People sat differently back then and women's underwear was constructed from triangles.

Hey guyz...one unfortunate thing is you cant find manual for it :(
You will keep wondering what its controls are ....after trying so much i found these things by triak and error
* For increasing bid in market F2 ,decrease bid with F1 (these are for player one only ) other players must have some other ctrls..
*Save game using numbers that u get on clicking the portrait of "flounder" .Those numbers are actually game slots
*You can select end product in the begining b4 the actual game starts.
*PAUSE: By clicking on clock
* Esc :To end turn in main screen
If you are in R&D screen, ESC goes back to main screen (board room) where meetings take place
*Shortcuts :Pressing initial letter in board room for eg : If you press R while you are in board room, you go to R&D room, pressing P to jump to Production screen
Hope it helps
