Just wondering: this game was most definitely NOT 1 megabyte back in 1979---so why is it such today? What's changed?

This is an awesome piece of nostalgia - I remember playing this game for hours on end. It doesn't need flashy graphics or beefed up sound or complex gameplay - it's just simple fun and a reminder of how far computers have come in 27 years. The fact that even just a simple port of the old classic makes the interface more intuitive than the original is amazing.

The one thing I'm glad is gone from the original is the annoying "save" feature. In the original, it was possible to get up to $100 in a short amount of time, but the game wouldn't believe you when it asked what your balance was on the last day, and it would start you off with $30. Annoying, indeed.

You can't compare this to other games, not even Lemonade Tycoon - that's like comparing Super Mario Sunshine to the original non-super Mario Bros.

Please, don't change a thing! This game doesn't need new scenarios, better graphics, or more things to buy - don't mess with a classic. Like it's been said, if you don't remember the original game, you won't get why this is so great.

Bug: Input fields are not limited to numbers only and accepts any text as "0".

Step(s): Enter any text into the field.

Result: Text entered is considered "0" when the game continues.

Expected: An error to be thrown telling the user to enter a number.

Been having fun playing the game with my gf while she knits next to me. Might be worth improving the graphics some and like others have said, expanding on the scenarios. Keep it up!

Awesome, I haven't played this game since I was in grade school. Those looking for a more advanced version might like Lemonade Tycoon but this is a real cool time waster for when you're at work . . .

If you didn't play the original you won't understand why this is cool, so don't complain.

Eh'.. it's alright, nothing at all compared to Lemonade Tycoon. Would love to have a lot more scenerios and/or other things you can buy.
