Have you got what it takes to be a Gazillionaire? You are an intergalactic wheeler-dealer, rocketing among the 7 planets of the Galaxy of Gogg as the head of your own trading empire. Your spaceship is loaded with 100 tons of moon ferns, oggle sand, lava lamps, diapers and toasters. Your goal? Sell the cargo, make a cool profit and earn one million kubars before your squid-faced, lizard-headed competitors beat you to it. Think you can achieve economic dominance of the galaxy? Congratulations, humanoid - you have what it take to be a Gazillionaire!

Sophisticated real-world economic tools help you determine where supply meets demand as you race to build your trade empire.

Play against 6 computer opponents and up to 5 humans in 5 levels of skill: Novice, Beginner, Intermediate, Expert and Master.

Purchase facilities on each planet such as loading docks, refueling platforms, ticket offices, radar towers and grain silos. Then charge a hefty usage fee to competitors.

Weekly news updates keep you abreast of everything from pirate attacks to religious festivals and provide crucial trading data, political analysis and economic forecasting.

An innovative on-line tutorial literally teaches you how to play - at your own pace!

Reviews:

Electronic Entertainment, April 1995

"There's a lot to manage in Gazillionaire. You have to keep an eye on labor, advertising, and insurance costs. Track news and weather bulletins to get a jump on your competitors. Haggle with creditors and petition for lower tariffs. Buy larger and faster spaceships. Analyze current trends, set passenger prices, and seek out the best markets for your cargo. Bid for Imperial concessions on seven planets, so you can hit your rivals with fat landing fees."

"The menu system is absolutely transparent, and there's detailed help available from all screens."

"Gazillionaire is an oddball financial sim that's economically sound and incurably silly. Win, and prove your economic machismo; start to lose, and you can always switch to Asteroids."

CD-ROM Today, May 1995

"It's hard to imagine that a game of high finance could be silly, but Gazillionaire has its wacky aspect, especially in its look and sound. The anti-slick pictures are a mixture of colorful 3-D and amateur cartooning that were created by a two-person startup called Lavamind."
