Fun and exciting to run your own corporation!
It is fun and exciting to run your own corporation and maximize your market share and wealth. You start with ten million dollars, and buy and run up to five companies.

As a CEO you have to manage raw materials, intermediate products, and finished goods. You learn to deal with takeovers, labor strikes, supply shortages, disasters, insurance, and credit ratings, or get beaten by your competition. Level 1 game play is easy, with complexity increasing as you move up in wealth and power.

Plenty of strategies to think about make this business simulation game a unique experience and one you will come back to again and again - very addictive and mega fun. The most intelligent online game i ever played!
